This makes me ill. I hope they catch and convict the SOBs and give them the maximum allowable sentence.

Although, in reality, it is California. Nancy Pelosi and Jane Fonda will probably sponsor a tea time luncheon for them.

From the text in Shooter Sam's link: "The Los Angeles Police Department said it is not investigating the case."

Why is this not surprising to me?

Since the Vandals signed their "Art Work" whats to investigate? Time to weed the garden that once was California has come and gone. As difficult as it would be to clean it all up, perhaps that giant earthquake the fiction writers keep predicting is coming would finally arrive, and save us the trouble of destroying it ourselves before we rebuild it.

Dennis, The earthquake scenario looks a bit different when you have loved ones in the US Navy up and down the California Coast. One more worry. RD

Just dump them out in Downtown Fallujia on a "Dirty Dozen" style mission. Make it back or not they'd have a whole new appreciation for what today is about. RD
