Yeah funny how the story is told not half the truth, it must be ok to show up at someone's place of residence and start trouble and expect not for the so called bad guys to defend themselves. Our justice system is nothing but a complete failure and only to tell society what sounds good. These two were no picnic in the park! Innocent people put away for lowlifes who show up drunk and high picking fights. Whatever happened to defending yourself?? Another thing don't wear red or or have tattoos your a vailedated gang member according to Elk Grove & Sac D.A's office.
