Stabbing at CftA: Barney Where Are You?

Stabbing has consequences

Center for the Arts, Grass Valley, CA —  Steve Robledo stabbed at least 2 people and maybe as many as 4 during a concert at the Center for the Arts last Saturday night, 11/15/2014. Liz Kellar, long-time senior reporter at The Union provides all of the relevant details here. BTW, ISIS was not involved.

WTF? Apparently Mark Torralba, alleged cousin to Mr. Robledo, corroborated the self-defense aspect of the attack. Nonetheless, Robledo was charged with Assault With a Deadly Weapon as follows:

245.  (a) (1) Any person who commits an assault upon the person of another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and imprisonment.
Tiny tiny bail

And yet, Robledo was released after posting bail on $25,000 (cash out of pocket to Mr. Robledo = $2,500).

Gish Gallop was unable to contact Crystal Peterson, who was allegedly stabbed in the hand by Mr. Robledo on the dance floor at the Center for the Arts on the night of the concert, but we can only imagine that she is less than happy that he is now wandering the streets, stabbing mindset still intact. Note: Ms. Peterson was not one of the stabbees, our apologies. Still, Martin Webb was an alleged witness to the event but Gish Gallop has also not yet been able to corroborate this with Mr. Webb, or to interview him for this story, so stay tuned (11/17/14).

Also, is Steven Robledo also Steven Moroyoqui, or did another SR change his name so he wouldn’t resemble the SR in this story, or something else entirely? Hmmm, lots of questions still unanswered. Meanwhile, a handful of some in the police departments sleep. Speaking of police departments and the DA, what’s going on with the Terry Lamphier investigation? We would think there would at least be some starter charges by now. It’s not working to have this hang around without charges for very much longer.

Hey, Barney Fifes of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department–and now in the Grass Valley Police Department–time to get off your duff and start showing some results.
