  • "Francesca Bolognini, you must be a Clayton supporter for Sheriff. Just like Mr. Clayton you get it all wrong in the news. But as you state “getting back to the point of this, how in hell does a Sheriff’s Department justify the intense use of manpower” and “is this the best use of our resources and tax money????? “Am I missing something here?” YES YOU ARE! Please read it again. Where does it say anything about the Sheriff’s Department? It was Atascadero PD. But just like Mr. Clayton, throw crap out there and hope it sticks."

  • "If they knew he had a felony no bail warrant, then it may have been justifiable. I would be interested in knowing what that warrant was for, however. And that should have been your narrative. But as a default member of the police crowd, you of course went for the utter bullshit narrative. It's not that him being armed with a knife doesn't warrant extra care, it's that most people don't actually believe that over-used often bullshit excuse. You're just looking for the easy-out reason to explain away everything with that, and it's really turning into a boy cried wolf situation. Here's the thing... when someone is LITERALLY armed with a knife, in the sense that they have a knife which they have threatened to use as a weapon, and/or are actively wielding it.. then there is always more detail provided that demonstrates that. When the phrasing is: "During the pursuit, officers learned that Orton was reportedly armed with a knife." Then we know the English language is being carefully chosen to manipulate our perception while avoiding any possibility of outright lying. That's the magic of words like "reportedly." I think the public is getting a little tired of the institutions that claim to be so concerned about integrity and honesty constantly and intentionally misleading them with that kind of nonsense."

  • "Stealing is stealing. WTF? During the pursuit, officers learned that Orton was reportedly armed with a knife.How does something as ignorant as your post make it in public. If you had someone in your house you were chasing, would you care if they had a knife, or would that matter? "So, what might the most expensive item in the whole store cost?" Really? What is the dollar amount you would call the police on?"

  • "Let me get this right. The kid was allegedly shoplifting from Smart & Final. A cut rate/volume type grocery store. So, what might the most expensive item in the whole store cost? Then he is "armed with a knife". Since he is not charged with armed robbery, this knife was apparently not in play. Unless I am mistaken, carrying a knife is not, in itself, illegal. When I first moved to Cambria, in 1979, nearly every guy and many women, including myself, carried a knife. I never hike without one. But getting back to the point of this, how in hell does a sheriff's department justify the intense use of manpower, helicopter and K9 assistance to run down a kid who stole a bit of food, or perhaps a bottle of alcohol? Seriously????? Is this the best use of our resources and tax money ????? Am I missing something here? I would file this incident with the purchase of a very expensive boat that was stated to be for the purpose of pursuit of smugglers in panga boats. Since this is the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard, just what is that vessel being used for? 3x higher death rate in our facilities than the national average. etc., etc.. This county is long overdue for a change in management of our sheriffs department. Please bother to vote. In so many ways, it matters."

  • "Owner here. The keying happened in the same location, at a business. I was out of town and they called to let me know what had happened. I thanked them and mentioned maybe we can figure out who did it via the dashcam footage. The next morning when I showed up to get the truck, it was gone."

  • "Got you too CC'? "It certainly does seem like illegal immigrant/gang related"... like the two are ALWAYS related or that it's ALWAYS just those two that get into gun fights? What is always related? The scared as hell bunch will go to any lengths to prove out their bigoted and racist beliefs without thought to what is, or isn't in this case, reported."

  • "Something is missing from this story. Im assuming the hotel guests were from out of town, but the suspect was not, and (probably) didnt know them...yet he knew where they were staying and what they had? Someone tipped off Sanchez...for example a hotel staffer? or the victims were stupidly flashy with their extremely expensive assortment of jewelry that they travel with, and Sanchez noticed?"

  • "What common thread is that, copper'? Or is it just the common bigoted thought in your head that persists? Your train, along with George's, is fueled by fear, belches racism thicker than any coal burnin' locomotive of the past while spreading hysteria all along it's track line. The victim wasn't identified in the article, the shooter wasn't identified, and you still can come to the conclusion that fits your phobia's? Must be rough just goin' outside..."

  • "Dear Vigilant Citizen. You said: "The word OPINION should precede the headline on all opinion pieces so that it appears across platform headlines and snippets. If clicks are all you desire than you will lose credibility." Now, please take a look at the article again and notice that it does indeed say "OPINION by RICK HOLIDAY" The fact that it's Rick Holiday's OPINION is being shouted by CCN. Your OPINION about this OPINION piece is now proven to be false. You are no longer entitled to that OPINION, because it is not factual in any way, shape or form. Said another way, your opinion sucks because it's patently false. Did Dow send out a memo to all the people in his office to come on CCN with "hit comments?" It appears you're one of them. Mr. Holiday's OPINION piece is his opinion and he's already taking heat for it. But he's not as bad as you are, making silly comments that are patently false."

  • "TOTAL HIT PIECE. Disgraceful how an unsubstantiiated, obviously biased, opinion piece can be published right before an election. Cal Coast News should be ashamed for having no editorial descrestion. The word OPINION should precede the headline on all opinion pieces so that it appears across platform headlines and snippets. If clicks are all you desire than you will lose credibility."

  • "Was the guest in town for the oscars? Sounds like this guy might have had some inside help from one of the workers. How would one know about expensive jewelry unless the people were wearing it when they checked in and someone informed the perp that the room was clear. I guess she doesn't wear her jewelry to the beach."
