During this time a little girl was walking home from Foothill HS and was found murdered in a field. I believe her name was Tina Feliz. Was that murder ever solved? Could this be related? Are the Pleasnton Police Department looking into this?

Tina Faelz's murder has never been solved. I believe she was found in a tunnel/shortcut that went under freeway, since blocked off. A terrible tragedy. And then there was the monster and his girlfriend who abducted the young woman from Pleasanton and killed her up in Tahoe, throwing her body out of their van. Such sickness and evil are difficult for us to comprehend. Once caught, they should never be allowed to see the light of day again. Such terrible suffering for the victims and their families.

Until there is a definite way to reabilitate sex offenders, they should not be released.
There is no way innocents should be subject to them. Once the commit these crimes, they should lose the privildge of being free.

Lk, I agree with you 100%. No child innocent should ever experience the tragety of being taken away from their families. Those who commit such crimes should be locked up and never see the light of day again! I have no compassion for sex affenders, abductors, or kidnappers. Such people are a disgrace to humanity.

I'm old school when it comes to these sickos. Anyone that's 100% proven of molesting a child should be castrated. Any sicko that's 100% proven of murdering someone (DNA technology is superb), should be executed, quick judgment with out wasting all the damn money on attorneys, court cost. That would scare the living hell out of anyone in our society from ever thinking of doing the same.

One reason Japan has very little percentage of that going on, is due to having zero tolerance with such acts of crime. Our prisons are already way over crowded, they're taking about releasing over 40,000 prisoners, due to how much it cost to keep the heavy load of people in our prisons, and billions of dollars spent.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
