    So what happened to him running around naked and having a gun.. Why did inyo county let him out of jail after being arrested last week for that stunt?
    And no one can blame anyone else for their actions. Maybe lay off the drugs and alcohol, sober up and get a job.

      Even NAKED parolee’s can’t have guns….

        you can’t get arrested for having a concealed weapon when your naked, just sayin’.

    I realize a comment of mine didn’t make it past moderation, I get it, and have nothing more to say, but before I sign off, I must add; If the Inyo County Sheriffs really want any help from “valid” sources, then they need to reason with the community on how their intervention is going to be in the best interest of all involved, and is their intervention the best practice we can take at this given time? I don’t trust them, but obviously that isn’t a concern of theirs..

    and for all the people who think the law, religion, congress or anything at that matter to be able to fix any of these problems we see today, for instance; social problems, ecological degradation, poverty, public health and well being, or in another sense, all the problems we see in the world today will NOT be resolved within this framework of the current socio economic model (capitalism, market economics)…For humanity sake, for our species sake, it’s time to move on from these outdated, institutional ways of thinking, give people what they need and stop reinforcing deprivation, leading cause of all crime is deprivation and social imbalance.. this isn’t the land of the free, you think going to the supermarket and being able to choose between 30 different types of cereals is freedom? Freedom is having access too basic human necessities. And I’m out this….

    P.S. If what I say doesn’t make sense, just remember that is not profitable to resolve any problems in this society, Peace, Sustainability and Efficiency are the enemies in this capitalistic society, or look up “structural violence” and how it relates to hunger, poverty or inequality…

      They can’t hear you because they are using cognitive dissonance as a psychological coping mechanism.

      For them it is to late for you my friend the gates are still open for you to fly freely. Rome is not the best place to be right now.

    My nephew is not ARMED & DANGEROUS, as for the rest of his compound, according to LP resident’s remark on Oct 30, that we’re no different, yes we are. A comment like that goes to show how rotten people are, you don’t
    know my family-don’t stub your toe?

    There’s good and bad in every one Lone Pine, and we all have the same basic needs, like it or not.

    • Lone Pine Resident November 2, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

      Drugs are not a basic need.

      • Trouble November 2, 2014 at 7:21 pm #

        Did I say one word about drugs? And Lone Pine Resident, I think it was rotten of you to say such degrading things about a whole family you clearly know crap about!

    This is so ridiculous! Ricky is not a threat or a danger to the community of LP. He is a good hearted young man who has got nothing but the smelly side of the stick. You 2 Lone Liners up there who don’t want to put your name, GOD is watching You. So while you are throwing stones, I hope you do not live in a glass house. This is an unfortunate case of someone who has only been put in situations after situation by someone he should be able to trust. Just because he is on parol, doesn’t mean he is any more a danger than all the jackasses walking free in this valley. I pray that this doesn’t end tragically, because I know for a fact that he doesn’t have a gun! He was however helping my 5 year old son shoot a airsoft gun just the other day until they ran out of Plastic ammo!!

      Perhaps you should talk to Ricky and tell him to face the music before this leads to additional charges or someone getting hurt

      • Jessica Daugomah October 31, 2014 at 2:08 pm #

        I wish I knew where he was to tell him. I would love to help with this, and I wish I could tell him also that his family loves him, his Auntie Earleen. Grandma, Sonny and me and the kids. Cousin Tera and Bubba.

      Parolee’s aren’t even allowed to have AIRSOFT guns…OR replica guns…or starter pistols…

      • Trouble November 1, 2014 at 8:05 pm #

        I’m not sure the Pope could get off parole or probation in this county.

        • Wayne Deja November 2, 2014 at 10:48 am #

          Trouble….And the reason for that being ….they keep re-offending…..and our court system keeps kickin’ them back out after the slap-on-the-wrist they get.

          • Trouble November 2, 2014 at 2:39 pm #

            Wayne- you seem to think people will change for the better when you keep lock them up for minor offenses. Why?

          • Desert Tortoise November 4, 2014 at 12:04 pm #

            Felony battery isn’t a minor offense. That deserves jail time. I think you need a little felony battery upside your head. You don’t think straight.

          • Trouble November 4, 2014 at 6:23 pm #

            Desert- Whatever you want to believe about my mind set is fine, but I was refering to how many people go back to jail for minor offenses after already serving their time. Thanks for jumping in.

    I know of a couple people of this family that are good,hard working people that overcame things in their lives and have become productive citizens.Part of the blame for this here is our court system and local Law Enforcement not doing nothing about it. When is it time to do something besides nothing ?Hopefully,before something really bad happens.

  7. Lone Pine Resident October 30, 2014 at 3:15 pm #

    He may have a lot of family in the valley, however, his family in Lone Pine are no different then he is other than the fact they have not been arrested multiple times. This guy needs to go to jail along with the rest of their compound in Lone Pine.

    • The Aggressive Progressive October 31, 2014 at 9:18 am #

      You can’t cover your eyes and ears all your life, the problem doesn’t go away in this system, only reinforces it! I mean tax payers will pay either way, I rather see my contribution go towards something more productive…It’s not looking good for the youth of the future :-(…

      ..and by the way I like how you throw blanket statements on whole families… that’s just brilliant!

  8. Trouble October 30, 2014 at 7:01 am #

    This is the first time I’ve seen someone make the Inyo Sheriffs most wanted list. He has a lot of family in the valley, some of which are very nice people.

  9. Rick O'Brien October 30, 2014 at 12:04 am #

    He won’t be hard to find…his picture being on the visor of every L.E. vehicle in the valley.
    Parolee at large with a gun…bad combo.
