  1. Take this moron to the city center and let the public mutilate it. These things need to be exterminated for the benefit of society. They're defective products that should not be allowed to live.
    Need to start going around and sterilizing the stains that birth these things. These ignorant oxygen thieves are all over now days. They all need to be purged.

  2. I will always remember that Jeffrey Dahmer's Mother said she knew since he was a child he wasn't right. They ALL KNOW….the other relatives, the school, the neighbors, everyone knows. That's why there were mental hospitals…..until then Gov. Reagan opened the doors and let them all out. Then he did it again when he became President. There was a time the neighborhood patrol and family doctors knew in which house was who. Today the doctor treats under HIPPA and the police? Well……suffice it to say they're human, so their population also includes a percentage of wacky. Indiscriminate breeding has brought us here and this guy lost the DNA lotto.

  3. The white woman in green, sure was slow to call 911. If it was a black man she would have been much faster.

  4. This dude killed 4 people, I've seen kid's killed for playing with a toy gun, saw a teenager shooting bottles in a back yard of an abandon house with a bb gun cop shot him on sight, guy gets choked to death for supposedly selling cigarette another one while selling CDs, all these guy's hadn't killed not one person but yet was given the death penalty, but yet these murderer's are taken in alive without one scratch on them wander why? Smdh

  5. who changed the law dud they think this out thoroughly of course California wow wow he looks like gang member pretty sick✊🇺🇸🕶

  6. Well it sure wasn't a love crime! Does a really have to matter if it's a hate crime, People Are People regardless and they died needlessly.😭😭😭

  7. Wearing a hoodie….in the middle of summer…..but don't judge

    Kills a security guard at a 7/11
    Id say if you got a security guard at a 7-Eleven. It's time to close a place.
    Crime riddled neighborhoods shouldn't get convenience.
    It's like building a donut shop in a Cookie monster neighborhood.
    They're not cookies but their donuts.

  8. this is just not right. this is getting really bad. I don't like this at all. Be careful out there people…just stay home…maybe think hard about where you go and be watchful of your surroundings…

  9. Lets see this one spun up to be Trump's fault. Good think he did this in Commiefornia where he knows he wont get the death penalty..

  10. Honestly, how much more of this shit are we supposed to put up with here in California? While this murder spree was taking place I'm sure Governor Newsome thinking up more ways to let violent convicts out of prison. Shame on Newsome, his predecessor Moon Beam Jerry Brown, and any other CA politician that supported AB 109 and the other laws that lets monsters like this walk among us and murder us. These victims blood is on Newsome hands, and even worse is the fact that Newsome won't allow any executions while he's in office.

  11. When white people start getting stabbed it's a problem. But when I white Trash Nazi shoots up a public place like white guys are known for doing it isn't a big deal. When people don't care about one race that other race isn't going to care about the other.

  12. It is recommended to have a new law. If the crime involves murder, then 10 fingers must be removed and castrate it

  13. He got no future with his rap sheet. Life in prison is free food, free housing, free medical, and his homeboys for life.

  14. Hang that MF from the nearest tree.a gun in your hand .is always better than a cop on the phone. Self defense is a right for all people.

  15. Mass stabbing o nooo where is the outrage. Ban knife we need back ground check and mental check and 10 days waiting time for knife now

  16. CA liberal policies at its best. Crime is on the rise because of ab-108 (early release). This is why we are moving out of ca

  17. Thanks California you've killed more innocent people with your radical views and soft immigration pandering, we'll see how you feel when its your family they're hacking up….

  18. Liberals will be calling for an unacceptable insanity plea to avoid killing an obvious nutcase with taxpayers money. It should be summary execution for this guy. A single round to the temple. BOOM. Game over. It'd be a lot better than he deserves.

  19. I doubt California Democrats will make any laws for knife control. Be worried about the politicians trying to take your 2nd Amendment rights away. More important know what the 2nd Amendment is for.

  20. this will continue to happen if we the people dont hold these politicians accountable for allowing and passing laws that endanger all of us these sanctuary law crap has to stop he should have been in jail people this should never have happened geez when are you going to wake up

  21. Ah great the Democrats start to feel their impact on hate against law enforcement and California laws. See what happens. Back the blue

  22. "Its very difficult to come up with a reason why this happened"…..He's a convicted gang member and a methhead….okaaay.

  23. Better to be ready when the wolf comes knocking right? People, please get you license to carry so you can protect yourselves. The carnage is done by the time police show up. This is so sad

  24. Yep, Knife control anyone? Oh that's right, they got that in the UK. Good reason for the second as I was raised to never bring a knife to a gun fight.

  25. GOVERNER Jerry Brown and Now GOVERNER NEWSOME, Supported early release for questionable prisoners. (Many Dangerous and Mentally insane people are being released every day sence they passed this insane Bill . The Democrats don't care about the Good hard working law biding citizens of California. Vote Them Out . Liberal Leftist NEWSOME and NANCY PELOSI, " and we can't forget OBUMMER ", have been Destroying our Nation and California with their policies. Make California Red again. Vote Republican Conservative. Time to Vote the Democrats out .Stop Mass migration and Santuary City's and State's. Vote for Trump 2O20.
