    He was not wearing a helmet

    So why does Somdnews.net have the headline "Murder in California"? How about getting the facts before posting such a headline? How about "Death in California" and report the facts known (man on motorcycle, shot heard, he was dead) at the time and that the SO is investigating instead of jumping to conclusions and stating "murder". Ridiculous, they should be embarressed.

    Now it's changed with 4 minutes of my previous post (I don't think that's why, just the timing). It should have been corrected hours ago.

    It is all about sensationalism, mitzi. That is what powers the media, or what is left of it. We all have to sift through it; whether it be local or national. As always, jmo.

    You're so right and I think it's pitiful and unprofessional. For a moment I thought I was looking at St. Mary's Today.

    Are you kidding? how about drunks driving? or drunks driving with their children in their car going for more booze?? I know a lot of idiots, with a gun or without....

    I lived in Texas and carried concealed for 10 years before moving to the safe haven state of Maryland. Never accidentally shot myself in the neck. Not even once. Lucky I guess.

    Obviously so. Back when I still had firearms, none of them had ever gone rogue and attacked anything. Guess I was lucky too.

    You mean like LEO and other agents who are authorized to carry?

    Do you really think that none of them carry their weapon without a round in the chamber and the weapon safety engaged. That would be like "hold on bad guy let me chamber a round before you start shooting at me".

    And I won't mention the military either.
