Surprising that these poor folks had enough energy to drag themselves off the sidewalk onto the grass. Shame they can't bust out an old push mower or two and spruce up the grass a little.
So, article author, if you interview someone and misspell both their first and last names, how can a person interpret the accuracy of the rest of the article. Ask Sgt Thompson how to spell her name at least. Also unbelievable is the commenters here that think violation of property and theft is excusable. I'll be right over to your place to take what I want, since that's OK with you.

SANTA ROSA, Calif. -- Santa Rosa police say a woman who was trying to help a parolee was kidnapped, robbed and attacked after she refused to rent a car for him.
Parolee Charles Nathaniel Lunnie met with the victim Saturday night and demanded that she rent him a vehicle, because his had been wrecked earlier in the day, Sgt. Steve Fraga said Sunday. The 52-year-old woman has been acting in a mentoring role with Lunnie, Fraga said.
When she refused, Lunnie, 30, allegedly used fear and physical duress to force her to take him to rental car companies around Sonoma County in search of a car. They were unable to rent a vehicle, however, because a number of major events were happening in Sonoma County this weekend.
Lunnie allegedly disabled the Bluetooth and GPS devices in the victim's car over the course of the night, and then later assaulted her and robbed her of her cell phone and personal property, Fraga said. He then allegedly took her vehicle and dropped her off near her home.
The victim contacted police Sunday morning, around 9:30 a.m. Police located Lunnie around 3 p.m. near his home, still driving the victim's vehicle, which had fresh damage from the previous evening.
A search of Lunnie's home located the victim's cell phone hidden in a food box in his bedroom.
Lunnie has been booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of kidnapping, robbery and violation of parole. Charges of domestic violence will be requested through the district attorney's office, Fraga said.
Why do these people always think making more laws is the answer? Less government, now!

A Eureka Police officer shot a reportedly armed man in an alley off Summer Street at around 11 a.m. Thursday after a resident wrestled the man to the ground.
Humboldt County Coroner Dave Parris identified the man who was shot as David Sequoia, 25, of Eureka, and said that he was pronounced dead shortly after he was taken to the hospital. Eureka Police Chief Garr Nielsen confirmed that the shooting involved two officers with his department, but released few details about the incident.
On Thursday, Summer Street resident Kris Coon said he heard rustling in the carport of his home, and found a white man in his early 20s carrying a backpack. Coon said the man pushed him, and Coon wrestled him to the ground, then realized the man had a handgun in his belt. His wife had called 911, and police arrived quickly, Coon said.
The man refused to comply with officers' orders to give up the gun, Coon said, and an officer shot the man in the head.
I won't post the whole article, but I guess you can figure it out. POLICE CHIEF GARR NIELSEN. Selective memory much?
Wow, that's a lotta ugly in that room. And I ain't talking about the mood. It is unfortunate that government agencies are bound by personnel rules from discussing "personnel matters" because, as in this case, there are a lot of hysterical, overreacting, very uninformed people out there right now. Like the no-longer-relevant Glass and downright scary Atkins. As facts leak out there will be back-tracking and rear-end covering. Cue Emily Litella.
Focus, folks! It ain't about the bad words, it's about the great work that the new neighborhood watch president, Paul King, performed. Awesome. Ya gotta know those cops were smiling inside. They should have bought Mr King dinner.
