    So, in the San Bernardino/Jorge Alvarado case…if you are a licensed operator of a 3-ton machine involved in manslaughter, but under the age of 18, your name gets kept out of the paper??

    (one of the comments notes the pro/con speakers were more like 40%/60% not the 80% against cited in the write-up). And “I would also like to point out that the specter of racism reared it’s ugly head, but not in the way you might expect. I heard one black man in a flurry of words near the end of his comments call a previous speaker (a white woman) a “cracker”. There were people there that cheered when this guy said that. I was appalled by that kind of talk.”
