Roseville parents conduct their own "police sting"

The rise of social media and Internet communication has given police much more area to cover when investigating crimes. After all, most everyone these days has at some point used a cellphone or computer to communicate with others, whether it is via text messages or email. However, these types of technology can also be used in ways which put people in awkward situations, if their messages are interpreted the wrong way. Recently, a California man was arrested in Roseville for his use of text messages, when allegations were brought that he was attempting to contact a teenage boy to possibly engage in sexual conduct with a minor.

The security protocols at our nation's airports have become so restrictive that hardly anything is approved for carry-on luggage.

Many elderly adults require personal, in-home caregivers, and these assistants can be great in many respects. They can clean the home, assist with medical needs and do the grocery shopping. According to a recent report, one elderly member of the Roseville community had just such a caregiver, but the situation may have taken a bit of a turn.

Most of our Roseville readers know that varying degrees of crimes carrying varying degrees of penalties. A DUI arrest, for example, is typically a misdemeanor. Robbery is a felony. The two different crimes have significantly different levels of potential sentences - a first-time misdemeanor usually results in probation, and a first-time felon could land a jail sentence followed by probation. However, most people also know that there are certain types of crimes that are of particular interest to prosecutors and police, to which they devote untold numbers of resources. The killing of a police officer, for example, will usually get the entire police force looking for the suspect. And something like possession or distribution of child pornography will get almost the full attention of a prosecutor's office.
