I think it's great they posted names and towns they live in. This has been happening for sometime and often very violent crimes come out of this. Human trafficing is also very common in Northern calif. Sad but true.

Yes, George is permanently retired as USS mentioned. And no, he isn't at the great comedy gig in the sky. He didn't believe in that at all. By the way, it is much better to see it and hear it rather than read it. http://youtu.be/73hnG_JfJ_k
