    Well we all know that, considering he was arrested on the first, Oakland fire happened on the second. So, while your statement is accurate, it's really redundant.

Three generation of the Trotter family, known in Sheep Ranch, as the one-family crime wave, have burgled properties there for fifty years....Glad to see another one behind bars.

      These comments are about an arson event in Sheep Ranch not the Oakland fire. Understand it might be confusing because the two headlines (and Oakland photo) are back to back. Prayers for your son's friends and loved ones.

        John closed the comments on that article. Surprisingly he left this one open. It is all about the web hits and $$$ of advertising.

          Okay rumor has it, and I repeat rumor not factual that soon he will be laying down his banjo for the skin flute.
          This post in no way or manner is meant to offend anyone except the guilty party in the Arson fire and has absolutely nothing to do with the tragic and worst in Oakland's history warehouse fire.
