    I will never understand killing someone you are more than likely friends/lovers/family with. If you want to take yourself out… do it. With that said, I feel for the families.

  3. this is too much. They need to stop making new laws about if prisoners are on good behavior they get out early. Just like that guy who killed his baby and made her perform oral sex.

  18. I believe they are talking about if it was for Prop 47 Matthew Warner would of still been in jail and the incident with his daughter wouldn’t have occurred because he was arrested prior to the incident but was released early for “good behavior.” Sick SOB should rot in jail hopefully he never gets out now

  31. What is causing all of these murders are some of the people coming out of jail. The state is shipping them to santa clarita, palmdale, and Lancaster. Which i believe is true because the same thing is happening in those areas too.

    • The state doesn’t ship anyone anywhere!! Lol when you get out of prison you Must return to the city you got arrested in. All the state does is give you $200.00 and a bus ticket and send you on your way!! Again people need to get facts before assuming!! Ive been to prison so I know for a fact they don’t ship us anywhere

    • They don’t ship anyone…. your given money for transportation, name and date to check in with probation, or you are let go and usually home of record. I didn’t need to be in jail or prison to know that.

    For those of you citing Santa Clarita as the 4th safest city, please note that Stevenson Ranch is NOT part of the City. It is unincorporated. So if you want to call this making our city “bad”, please note that this does not count against us.
