  6. $5,000,000 fine! I think You have too many zeros in your article in regards to Shafer’s possible sentence on a conviction. Additionally, as written it relates to a minimum sentence.


  7. Nobody got murdered, yet you can murder someone in California and get out of prison in 7 to 9 years with “good time.”
    Does this seem more than a little fucked up?


  8. They don’t want violence yet they’re playing games like this? Fuck your drug wars. You really want to take it back? Where do I send my support check?
