You obviously didn't HEAR the evidence since you said said you were in the court room for most ofRead More the trial. The most important thing we need to remember is Stephen himself changed his story twice and admitted to being with baby Kye when the injuries happened. There was never one single mention of falling down any stairs. Order the transcripts. The grandpa did not say he SAW Kye fall. He said that Stephen came out and TOLD him he fell off the couch while he was mowing the lawn. Order the transcripts. The text that he sent to the mother at 230am after he beat him actually said "your Damn kid fell off his bed again" Order the transcripts. Who does that when you know what you just did to that baby? It is fine that you see this differently but dont add things that weren't said or didn't happen.

And nothing at all matters before that day. It does not matter that the biological father or hisRead More family had absolutely nothing to do with Kye by their own choice. It doesn't matter if mom didn't get tests done that would have proved that nothing was wrong with Kye. It doesn't matter how nice someone was to you at a family bbq...on Aug 13th 2011 someone made a big mistake and fatally injured a baby. That is all that matters today and 12 people decided he will pay for it. I always ask myself...what would you do if Kye was your baby. You would want justice. Ask yourself this question please and see how you feel

Heidi, you were proven on the stand to be a liar. You changed your story your recorded statement toRead More the police. Perjury is against the law or have you forgotten that. You should be ashamed of yourself along with Kim and Jazmin Payne who were also proven liars on the stand. You think jury tampering isn't going to be looked into by the judge, you think this is the end. There will come a day when the ACTUAL guilty parties will be held to answer for what they did and there will come a day when you yourself will have to face your maker and account for the lies and misleading you played in this matter. The truth will come out and Stephen Hoffman will go free.

Just to be clear... "The Golden State does not have a statewide law against riding bikes onRead More sidewalks. But under the California Vehicle Code, local governments can enact their own prohibitions. In San Francisco, for example, only children under 13 are allowed to ride bikes on sidewalks, according to the SF Bicycle Coalition." "Pomona seems to be another city that allows sidewalk riding through omission, as they expressly prohibit all other human-powered vehicles on the sidewalk(Sec. 58-602)." Each year in California, more than 100 people are killed and hundreds of thousands more are injured in bicycle collisions. Some bicycle related crashes are connected to the bicyclist’s behavior, while others are due to the motorist’s lack of attention. Bicycle riders on public roads have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists, and are subject to the same rules and regulations. Refer to the California Driver Handbook to become familiar with these rules. • Motorists must look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes, and opening doors next to moving traffic. • Respect the right-of-way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Mr. Crowley, until you better understand your responsibilities as a driver who shares the road with a bicyclist who is ENTITLED and/or required to ride on that same road, I recommend that you either take a bus or take a hike.

Hey James Crowley, riding a bicycle on the sidewalk is illegal! You are making it very clear that 1Read More you don't ride, and 2 you're a moron.
Alex Suchey January 24, 2014 at 12:37 pm
Crowley "raised bike lane". Holy cow! It's called a side "WALK" as you soRead More plainly expressed with our own words. Read your CA DMV handbook and get your head on straight. I'll tell you right now there's plenty of dangers with strollers, kids, dogs, wheelchairs, and small toddlers playing even along sidewalks that a cyclist riding along those intended "WALK-WAYS" are going to get a lot more innocent unsuspecting people seriously hurt or killed. A child on a trike darted in front of a cyclist on a recreational path not to long ago and the cyclist in every effort to avoid hitting the it irradically operated tricycle died from a broken neck at a low speed crash. Sad. It's actually safer on the road for everyone concerned as long as we all are aware and play by the rules afforded us. Get in the game and think before you comment next time.

Predators that molest do it for control...it's not "horny-ness or feelin' sexy"...WhatRead More molesters and rapist do is deviant and horrible and not about getting or sustaining an erection....And women can be both molesters and rapists, as well......Annie, I DO understand and agree: lobbying for insurance to cover Viagra for men while not advocating coverage for birth control for women is LAME, however it just doesn't fit in this instance. Rape doesn't require a penis.

People should never leave kids, even with some relatives. There a lot of sick people out there, andRead More you don't really know who the "Shiawt deviant" is. I remember, when I was a little girl, my mother always adviced me not to ever sit in anybodys lap, including friends and some of the male family members. I always follow her advice. I never had any problems, but I was also very aware of any strangers, and even of the teachers in school. Kids, have to know, that many perverts male or female are lurking in any place.

And some of them get positions working with children. SCREEN with extreme prejudice and care anyoneRead More that works with children in ANY capacity. SCREEN THEM. Teachers, coaches, priests, councilors, therapists, police are MOSTLY good people that care and are decent...there are some that aren't...Screen when you hire people, and pay the money for the fingerprint and identity clearance. It is worth every dime. "California law authorizes certain governmental and private organizations to conduct criminal offender record information background checks to help determine the suitability of a person applying for a license, employment, or a volunteer position working with children, the elderly, or the disabled. Law enforcement agencies, public and private schools, non-profit organizations, and in-home supportive care agencies are some of the organizations authorized to conduct these fingerprint-based background checks. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, the Department of Justice (DOJ) processed three million background check requests."

Not enough superlatives or compliments for the people who have been fighting this fire. They haveRead More done an outstanding job!
Gina Tenorio (Editor) January 17, 2014 at 05:23 pm
Thank you Larry. Yes a lot more can be said. If anyone wants to express gratitude toward thoseRead More emergency workers who took part in the firefight, that is most certainly encouraged.
Kate Kelly January 18, 2014 at 10:12 am
Everyone in Monrovia okay? I'm in Austin but my roommate is home and wont pick up the freakingRead More phone.

Crimes against children are so heinous that accused pedophiles like Cervantes, Sylvain Kustyan,Read More Jerry Sandusky, etc. must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky is now safely behind bars. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France,as an English teacher, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland.. Pedophiles condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure they must be stopped ASAP!

Fact or Fiction?? Police car was the vehicle that hit the biker.
Gina Tenorio (Editor) December 27, 2013 at 11:20 pm
Ms. Reed, Police say it was a 54-year-old woman who struck the cyclist.
David Serbin December 28, 2013 at 03:17 am
What is sad is that most of Claremont has bicycle paths on certain streets. Baseline is a prettyRead More busy street; I am thinking that most bikers who are going for a "joy ride" should avoid a street like Base Line.
