Jackson Scott: Doug, you never cease to amaze me.
As the self-proclaimed "do-gooder" of the east side, assisting veteran's to medical appts, etc, we all would think that you might have a bit of tolerance.
It's funny how with you that you expect the "rich & powerful westsiders" (anyone west of the tracks to you) to give the minorities on the eastside a break, but just because a kid is white you wonder why the book wasn't thrown at them. And how they must be kids of the GOB's.
Doug, it's not the 1970's anymore. Most LPD cops did not grow up in Lodi, nor do they know everyone like when I was a kid here. LPD doesn't care who are the GOB's or their kids.
Fact- in checking with my sources (my oldest son) all of the guys were over 21. Yes, they were at the park after dusk. A total of 1 six pack between five guys. Several had worked after 11pm that night and they were all just shooting the breeze having a cold one after work. You remember those days with you ol' union buddies, right?
Doug, you are nothing but a bitter old man. Let me say it again, I can round up a dozen people that will assist you to pack up a Uhaul so you can move away from this horrible, corrupt town that you complain about non-stop.

advocate: Were those that were drinking and the victims allowed to drive home without being given sobriety tests? If some were younger than 21, as Mr. Scott assumes, why wasn't the 21 year old charged with providing alcohol to a minor? Maybe Lodi law like the old days when the chief always took care of his family and friends first? Old Bob could tell you some good tales about that.

mason day: I remember when Frank used to patrol and at night would patrol along with a LPD officer in separate cars to ensure that nobody hung around after closing.Those were the good ol' days. Why isn't this being done today? Don't tell me budget shortfalls as an excuse.

advocate: What were those young men doing at Lodi Lake at 1:30 am? Lodi Lake closes at dusk and why weren't they cited and named as well? Maybe some of the good old boys or cops kids? And how old were they? just more bigoted news from the Sentinel and their cub reporters.

Jackson Scott: Let's get the story correct. The man who was drinking was a 21yo. From the story you have no clue how old the man is. There were about four or five kids/men in total robbed, ages 20 & 21. They knew at least one of the gang bangers telling them that they went to middle & high school together. Most of the bangers were going to let the group go until the one pulled out his gun.
Luckily the boys had left their wallets & cell phones in their locked cars so they did not have much.

Frank Gayaldo: My first job in law enforcement was being a Lodi park ranger in 1985-1986, and then in 1988-1989. Back then dedicated rangers were confronting and arresting armed felons without guns themselves.
Today Lodi Lake remains a lovely and unique treasure that requires constant patrol. Kudos to LPD for catching these thugs.
