My heart goes out to the parents, son and anyone else who loves and cares for him . As a parent I can only imagine how painful it must be to have a child so sick that they must call the police for support. And although I am sympathetic towards anyone who has an ill ess and how painful trying to co trol and manage their child, i must add that the description provided in the police record soundsl as though he might be dangerous to both himself and others when not properly treating his condition. I hope the police are thorough and his parents are open to the the feedback of law enforcement and medical mental health e Peet's and do whatever is necessary to protect society.

David Morales was arrested for the Jan 2 shooting, and 2 murders and 3 attempted murders, and charged with being a convicted felon, gang member in possession of a firearm. Neither ABC, CBS, NBC, SF Chronicle, nor Associated Press would report as to whether Morales gang association was an illegal alien gang, nor what the prior felony conviction(s) was/were, or whether Morales is a citizen or illegal alien. SF has a policy of not reporting criminal convictions to INS/ICE in order to protect illegal aliens from deportation. So much for transparency and neutral press. Novatoans, be careful when you are in SF. The felons are protected better than you are.
