Who were the johns? What was their market? Where did they advertise - I am curious to know so thatRead More I can recognise anything similar

Iris Dandi, I agree that any those who sought sexual services should be arrested and charged,too,butRead More I think law enforcement was focusing on arresting the pimps involved in human trafficking,which is a serious problem. These women were more than likely illegal immigrants from Central America. They need to be given the option of going into a safe house,where they can receive treatment,or being deported. The reason that law enforcement should do this is that they will more than likely be out on the street working for another pimp unless they are given sanctuary in a safe house. I live in Alta Heights and I'm pretty sure there is something of a similar nature going on in the apartments near where I live. Things have quieted down of late,however. I wonder if Napa Patch would find out the address of the brothel in Napa.

Money is the root of all evil, no? You'd think smart guys like lawyers and bankers would understandRead More that. Ahhhh... but power breeds power, and they're only human, right? No worries, liberal judges will help them rehabilitate back into society...

These people need to go to jail. Period.
Rock Fan April 16, 2014 at 01:49 am
Oh , I think they will go to jail , but it will be awhile .They all managed to post bail .But areRead More looking at a federal judge in less than two days .They will all plead not guilty and it may be 8 to 10 months before the trial runs it's coarse .I'm sure there is quite a paper trail .

Who says casinos are bad for your community, bringing in out of town crime? You think these thugsRead More would have visited Rohnert Park for their shady ops because of Scandia or Spreckles? Dream on folks, welcome to the new Sonoma County lifestyle. Casino Royale. Children first!

Good job police! Oh yeah, don't blame the casino!

Unfortunate that the victim refused medical treatment . . . it can take days for the adrenaline toRead More leave your system before you start feeling the pain of trauma . . .

It was a ~100lb tiny woman with 1-2 beers in her who got a .08 on the nose. Remember when limit wasRead More .10... I would therefore hardly consider her a 'one-eye open' menace to society with wanton disregard for the safety of others.

"Wagstaffe said that this latest arrest prompted a thorough interview by a detective, who foundRead More no evidence of any mental illness." Well Hell, if the DETECTIVE, who is NOT a Psychologist OR Psychiatrist didn't see any sign of mental illness, there must not be any, right? Stevie Wonder could see this woman has a mental problem, and does NOT deserve to sit in jail or be charged with a crime. She needs and deserves help, from a DR, NOT a friggen Detective! So now we're going to start arresting the elderly for being confused, or having possible dementia?!?! It's all about the $ right? $25k bail, for WHAT? This is so wrong!

"She Believe She Can Fly"....................................... She used to think thatRead More She could not go on......... And life was nothing but an awful song...... But now She know the meaning of true love...... She leaning on the everlasting arms...... If She can see it, then She can do it....... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it....... [Chorus:] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Stowing away on a Plane and fly away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly..... See She was on the verge of breaking down...... Sometimes silence can seem so loud.......... There are miracles in life She must achieve......... But first She know it starts inside of her, oh...... If She can see it, then She can be it......... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it [Chorus] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Spreading her wings and flying away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly.....

The $950 raised should be more than enough to send her on a one way ticket to Hawaii. Then she canRead More be their problem.

What has this got to do with the Graton Casino? Not a damn thing. You sure bring it up though toRead More spread innuendo and make judgements. Please print the facts and keep your judgements out of the articles.

I think it is good to shame the johns - the families should know, especially if they bring homeRead More diseases - the john are the reasons why the industry exists, and those that target minors are the worst. If you go to steal something, or murder, and don't get the actual job done - you should be let go, despite your clear actions of intent?
Sandy Murphey April 9, 2014 at 07:22 am
I guess the police assumes that if you respond to an ad from a hooker, and even more so if thatRead More alleged hooker is "13 yrs. old", and that you show up at an agreed meeting place, that if you're not stopped, you'll do the deed, and pay the price. This time they'll pay more than they agreed to pay. You might not mind their names being shown if your young daughter or grand daughter was the one they hoped to engage with. (sex and drugs....nice combo for a youngster) Note that they had other criminal records, like: " Kerri Sinkus, 49, of Santa Rosa, were arrested for solicitation of prostitution. Lauchaire was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Sacramento residents Jessica Carrillo, 20, and Kandice Jones, 21, were arrested for solicitation of prostitution Carillo was also arrested for violation of probation, while Jones was also arrested for outstanding warrants. Michael Foster, also known as Marcus Foster, 27, of Sacramento, was arrested for aiding in prostitution and violation of parole."

Are you a native of Petaluma? Just curious
Ken B April 8, 2014 at 10:14 am
Yes Petaluma does have its share of homeless, maybe due to tough financial times?? We also have anRead More award winning Mary Issac Center that provides much needed support and services to folks who are a bit down on their luck. And Yes, Pervs do exist everywhere, and maybe a bit more obvious and expected with folks in tough times, but lets be clear, Stranger /=/ Danger, for I know that most of these folks are good and probably help out in more ways than they might ever detract.
Steven C. Preader April 8, 2014 at 12:44 pm
The very brief description doesn't state the man as homeless. To assume that he is, doesn't makeRead More him a pervert. If you're going to profile him, pedophile, is the word your looking for. Pedophiles come in all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. I hope this man is caught and removed from the public, Just brcause he's unshaven, and sitting on a bench doesn't mean he's homeless. He might be off work (for whatever reason), retired, or a plethora of explanations.

This crash was reported in at least three other news outlets and each chose to include anRead More explanation of who Cindy is, and on each site there was someone complaining about that. I think when someone famous is involved that gets reported because of the tendency towards sensationalism in the media. Patch in this case is sort of just re-reporting the news from other sites. But it could have been edited out as everyone in Napa knows who CP is (and if they don't they don't care). I would also like to hear about the child's family, and the circumstances leading up to the crash.
bluecollardoctor April 8, 2014 at 10:08 am
I am dismayed by the number of crashes recently that have involved "veering" orRead More "swerving" as if it was an impossible task for some people to keep their car in their own lane pointed in the right direction. At least when alcohol, sleep deprivation, or texting is involved we have an explanation. But when those factors are not involved it is really scary that we have here now a population of drivers who seemingly don't have the skills to operate their vehicles.
