Let's all stay calm and not rush to judgment. Maybe the traffic light deserved it. Also NOW is not the time to discuss this either. This is the time when our thoughts and prayers should be with the traffic light. (too soon for this?) ___________________________________________________"Two women were reported to police for drunk driving near McDonald's at Santa Margarita and Marguerite Parkway around 2:15 a.m." ___________________________________________________Were they charged with simultaneous driving as well? Because, IANAL, that's not a crime ___________________________________________________"Four men were physically fighting inside a gym on the 24400 block of Alicia Parkway around 10:23 p.m." ___________________________________________________Were they wearing gloves?
