The government class always takes care of its own [R. Scott Moxley’s Moxley Confidential, “Judge Goes Easy On CHP Pervert,” March 26]. Besides, it wasn’t such a big thing. The girls were all members of the peon class, not the government class, so it really doesn’t matter. Now, had it been an adult member of the peon class wanting to express his desires for sex with the young daughter of a member of the government class, well, now, that would be a problem!

Who knows what goes on in the mind of a judge, but it is adequately clear that Judge M. Marc Kelly fumbled the ball big-time on this case. If this is a typical decision that he renders, Kelly needs to be voted out next time he is up for confirmation. This case would have been a perfect example for the criminal-justice system to send a strong message to those predators who select children as their victims. This suspect should have gone to jail for the maximum allowable sentence and experienced what child molesters get there.

Mr. Moxley, thank you for your comprehensive report on this case. It’s creepy, disgusting and despicable that Lieutenant Stephen Robert Deck was conducting this activity while serving as a law-enforcement supervisor and manager. “Yes, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus,” huh? Seems like Kelly’s courtroom sees a lot of colorful CHP (past and present) characters. Baffling.

Way to go, perverted justice!

Deck was apologetic and remorseful because he got caught! And he was terrified he was going to prison, where he wouldn’t have his own private cell anymore. Where was his “remorse” during that long period of time he was conducting this bullshit? We’ll see how he does while he’s a 290 registrant on probation.

ROLL, BABY, ROLL
Ha, ha, ha, I love it [Hey, You! “Night Rider,” March 26]! After all, strollers and wheelchairs can be used as “deadly weapons,” too.

You should have let the ugly bitch have it right there, even in front of the kids. They need to learn there are nasty people in the world and this is how we deal with nasty people.

Thanks for the find [Gustavo Arellano’s Hole In the Wall, “Tasty Teriyaki In Tustin,” March 19]. I will have to try this place out. When you guys write articles like this, could you try to include pictures of the food a bit more? Edwin Goei usually has pictures of smiling people who work at the various places, and you may catch a glimpse of the food if they are holding it, but the food is seldom the “star” of the photos.

In the Weekly’s review of Second City’s Can You Be More Pacific? [Joel Beers’ “Orange Curtain Called Out,” March 26], it was implied that the play referred to Broadcom co-founder Henry Nicholas III by name. While one of the characters was a rich guy with a sex dungeon, the play did not use Nicholas’ name. The review should also have noted that Nicholas was exonerated of that and all other charges in January. The Weekly regrets the error.
