"“It wasn’t a really interesting essay, just the latest news breaking. I saw TweetDeck, and I was watching all of our peers — either before or after us — tweet the exact same story. I thought, ‘This is how it ends. This is grim. We’re all just sort of regurgitating the same thing over and over again.”"

"Months after pleading guilty, the former Costa Mesa resident said he learned the substance was not cocaine after all. Timothy Slappy succeeded in having the conviction sealed and removed from his criminal record and, in March 2011, filed a lawsuit against the city, asking for $1 million."

"The group's report on 2010 attacks against the homeless comes as detectives from multiple Orange County police agencies continue their search for a suspected serial killer who stabbed to death three homeless men in Anaheim, Placentia and Yorba Linda."We feel they are crimes of opportunity, though it seems grounded on a sickness," said Neil Donovan, executive director of the organization, and an advocate for the homeless for more than 30 years."

"Three homeless men stabbed to death in north Orange County appear to share at least one characteristic with hundreds of other homeless people attacked nationwide in recent years, according to a group that monitors such violence:They were easy targets."

""In each of these cases, the number of stab wounds increased," Rackauckas said. "I became increasingly concerned about the viciousness of the attacks. I wondered whether this murderer would ever quench his thirst to kill and who his next victim might be.""

Along with two other middle-aged men – James A. McGillivray, 53, and Lloyd Middaugh, 42 – Smit is believed to have fallen victim to what police are calling a "serious, dangerous serial killer" preying on homeless people in Orange County.The three men were found dead within five miles of each other within a span of 10 days – Dec. 21-30 – all of them slain while alone, police say.
"Because (Smit) was homeless, most people probably had written him off," says Winters, 56, of Huntington Beach. "But you can't write off feelings. At one point in my life, this guy was my best friend."

Introduction
I am a writer. Currently, I am a Crime and Breaking News Reporter for The Orange County Register in Southern California. You can also find my work at my personal blog, Drop.Dead.Line., where I talk about some of the stories I've worked on- and some random topics I am interested in. 
What am I interested in? Anything that makes the world go round, whether its the political, global, haphazard electronic community we live in, or what makes our own personal worlds turn. The worlds of crime and politics, often privy only to those inside them, are among the top. 
Have questions or wanna chat? You can also find me on Twitter @Salhernandez.
