san-diego-prison Not that big of a deal, but it might be an indication of the terrible state of our prison system.

Via Mercury News:

A 40-year-old inmate has been stabbed to death by a fellow prisoner at Donovan State Prison east of San Diego.

Sheriff’s Lt. Dennis Brugos says the inmate, whose name wasn’t released, was stabbed Monday morning in the Otay Mesa prison’s recreational yard. He was serving time for theft.

Authorities say 49-year-old Frank Baca of San Francisco, who is serving a life sentence for murder, stabbed the inmate. A motive hasn’t been disclosed.

Arizona is Racist

Please please please do it!!!

Via San Diego News Network:

The San Diego City Council Monday will consider a resolution denouncing an Arizona law that requires police to determine if detainees are in the country legally.

The resolution was requested by Council President Ben Hueso.

“This law will inevitably lead to racial profiling, in violation of the United States Constitution,” Hueso wrote in a memo to his council colleagues.

Similar resolutions are being considered in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The Arizona law makes it state crime to be in the United States illegally.

Padres Beat The Giants Because They Rock!

Hell yeah!

This is a great article about how ridiculously awesome the Padres are and how pathetic and crappy the Giants are. Bam!

Via Andrew Baggarly at San Jose Mercury News:

The Giants were not built to bludgeon opponents. There will be nights this season when a quality pitcher will make roadkill out of them.

Throw in struggling No. 5 starter Todd Wellemeyer and some of manager Bruce Bochy’s oft-lamented buzzard’s luck Wednesday afternoon, and it was practically impossible for the Giants to peel themselves off the asphalt.

Their 5-2 loss to Jon Garland and the Padres finished off a three-game sweep at Petco Park and a road trip in which they were flattened while losing five of six.

It wasn’t their day or their week. Now they have to prove it still could be their season. They’ll play host to the Cardinals, Phillies and Rockies — three of last year’s four NL playoff teams — on a nine-game homestand that begins Friday.

“We’ve been through this before,” Bochy said. “We have to show this is a tough and resilient club. This is not something we thought we’d go through. But we are, and we have to handle it.”

The Giants ceded first place to the Padres in the NL West, and the Giants’ chest-pounding confidence is gone after a roaring start.
