  1. the person who got hit I’m sure is in alot of pain and I feel for her. It’s hard for everyone evolved. I know that Anna and the babies are okay.
    I watched my little brother get arrested over a video call it’s a hard thing to watch to sheriffs have my brother lay on the ground with rifles aimed at him. Idk if anyone ever considers anyone’s past and what people go through I don’t know if anyone realizes what our family has gone through my father committed suicide when Hunter was only 10 years old my brother heard my dad shoot himself in the fucking head over the phone and people want to sit here and treat my family like this it is fucking straight bullshit and I’m not going to sit here and let people talk about my family when they don’t know all the details and they’re not the ones involved they’re not the ones struggling with this so they should probably just keep their mouth shut because it’s really hurtful. Everyone is quick to judge no one considering mental health . Fuck all you assholes and your shitty county I hope you all rot there to be quiet honestly at this point. I’m fed up with the way you humans can be so disrespectful of others feelings. Sorry not sorry

    • No. That’s quite literally enabling bad behavior which is probably why your brother almost killed someone. This news source is one of the most unbiased in Mendocino county.

      I’m sorry you were traumatized by your brothers arrest. I have been through the exact same thing, watching my dad get kicked to the ground and have a rifle directly into his back. I feel for YOU but defending your brother like this will only make the problems your family will go through worse. You’re lucky she’s alive too. My uncle wasn’t so lucky when he got shot by my step grandpa. And the crap my family went through was horrible. You have to see what he did wrong, and if it was your brother who had been shot? Wouldn’t you want the person who shot him to pay for what they did? Think about her and her family WHILE you’re thinking about your own not after.

    • honey..he SHOT someone…thats way more serious than beatong someone up…anytime you point a gun at someone , you are threatening to kill them .he is lucky nobody nearby had one too because at that moment they would have been justfied in killing him
      guns are not toys.
      im glad everyone..him and her are ok. for everyones sake.
      your family is in my prayers

    • That is the problem with the world. We make excuses for behavior like your brothers.

      Zero excuses for what he did. Sorry your family had a bad childhood but other people have had as bad or worse yet dont pull crap like this.

      Get out of the victim mentality for both you and your brother and grow up. He shot someone quit making excuses. Once you grow up and move on life gets better for eveyone involved.

    • Jessica, your brother committed a crime, attempted murder. He will be tried and if convicted will serve time. That is reality. You volunteered to post a comment, you volunteered personal information. You are not a victim you are a volunteer just like your brother. Good luck seeking therapy .

  2. Miss Toles do the crime do the time…stop your local dealing and grow up. Your dad killed himself obviously cause of his kuds and he was an awesome guy. Very honest.
