Description

Citizens of Bakersfield California were in for a crazy day on December 10, 2016. The public events of this day would result in a police chase, and two deaths, eventually a third.

Manuel Vela was no stranger to dealing with the law, and resisting arrest almost every single time. Beating on his woman was not an unknown pastime for him. He spent his entire life in and out of juvenile homes and eventually prison, but his final crimes against his fiance would be beyond any act of violence he had committed before.

WHY did his/it's friend/family member say it was a "good boy" when it had a rap sheet a mile long and was a woman beater even before committing these atrocities??? It's been a drain on society most of it's life and while I'm not happy it got an "easy out" with the suicide- I'm glad it's gone.

It seems to me that if an individual does not like a show and/or the host, the logical action would be to unsubscribe from that show.I dont understand why the individual has to bash and moan and groan about it all.I see that your parents taught you that if you dont like something or someone, to be sure its known.I guess someone forgot to throw the word kind in there.In place of insults, try looking within at your own shortcomings.

He was mentally ill at that time, whether drug induced or the results of prolonged drug use. If he killed himself, it was the first time he's had clarity into his evil soul, and he couldn't live with that. the non justice system failed him by not taking his threats on society seriously for years. I dont think he was schizophrenic, I think his mental illness was drug induced, which is why he did not get help throughout the years, I'll give the family the benefit of the doubt that they saw a druggie that they just couldn't help and the system ignored. great podcast. you're not a douchebag, I'm not a virtue signaling cuck, and Carole fucking Baskin killed her husband.

This guy is a devil who knows nothing about the bible. I'm glad he is dead and gone so there wouldn't be a useless long trial where he would get life with the possibility of parole. Fuck that!,
