    kansascity1960 - while we should resist the urge to judge anyone until the facts are in, you should know that the standard regarding innocence until proved guilty only applies in a court of law; not in the court of public opinion.However, the fact that the couple was arrested means that the police believe a crime has taken place. If in fact this results in a self-defense adjudication, someone's opinion in the LNS forum won't matter one hoot.

    I've spent the last two months attending college at BYU in Utah. Going through their police section in the newspaper and laughing at how trivial everything was. One drug bust was pretty much the height of crime. Looking at that, i thought about how every Monday, I could open up the paper to see someone killed. My first Monday back home, and Lodi lives up to that expectation. Keep it up my li'l home town.

    Hey dmendoza, to hope "the couple goes 2 jail for life" that is so wrong to say at least until we all know what happened. I am not saying killing someone is the right way to go, but do you know that it wasn't self defense? Unless you were there and saw and heard what transpired, you shouldn't be throwing away the key until you know (what really went on) What ever happened to "inocent until proven guilty". . . Everyone looses.....

    Yes it's just too bad that it will add to the financial crunch of the hospital, but I'm more upset about the fact that someone lost their life!

    That's right dogs4you, the hospital will most definitely add this to their financial crunch. Thanks criminals, first tax our hospitals, then tax our prison system. Disgusting.

    dmendoza, sadly, people have been killed or better yet murdered over less. Looking at someone the wrong way in Stockton could spell a death sentence for you. As a rule though, it`s a 5-6 on one ratio that makes anybody feel braver. What a lousy way to die, in the steeet and no one to care. Truly sad, next stop potter`s field. From what I understand, LMH will eat the bill.
