The criminals get a free pass once again. No wonder crime is escalating all over our Nation. Are we really better off having someone with potential domestic violence charges who recklessly endangered others while fleeing? I hope that they retry the case and that justice is served.

To Parent and Voter:

Is't it "unusual" how these turns of events nearly always occur with folks having "certain physical appearance features." It's kinda like they have a universal get out of jail free card. It's not that they didn't commit the crime, and in this case, in so doing, endanger others. Like you, I hope the DA will try the guy again, but I'm not holding my breath that she will. The other issue that deserves some further attention is where are all the arrests for the smash and grab "team robbery" at Nordstrom's in Walnut Creek some months ago? Thus far all I see is some blocked off streets.
