The Penalties of Dog Fighting in California

The Penalties of Dog Fighting in California

When it comes to owning animals, people are supposed to treat the animal with the same respect that they would a human. If a person does not take care of an animal, then they can face animal abuse charges. Animal abuse on its own is pretty bad, but forcing an animal to fight another animal for personal amusement is another thing entirely.

Here in California, the state has its own separate law regarding dogfights. California Penal Code 597.5 for a person to own a dog with the intent of having it engage in a fight. This law also makes it illegal to be a spectator of a dog fight.

The penalties for California’s dogfighting laws vary between misdemeanor and felony depending on the actual crime the person is accused of...

The Dangers of Online Gaming

The Dangers of Online Gaming

Internet safety is always a big concern, especially for parents. You never know who your kids might be meeting online unless you pay close attention. Most parents know to warn their kids about talking to strangers that they met online on sites like Facebook. However, there is one avenue of online communication that often gets overlooked: online video games.

Online games enable players to play their game with anyone in the world. As great as that is for gamers, it can be problematic for young children. They can end playing their game with anyone, and as most adults know, there are some real creeps out there. Many parents are discovering that their kids are hearing and experiencing very inappropriate things online.

A disturbing new trend that is on the rise is child predators using gaming...

Move Over or Slow Down

Move Over or Slow Down

Ask anyone, and they will tell you that driving on the freeway is not quite the same as driving on surface streets. On freeways, cars drive a lot faster and there is very little stop and go, unless of course there is a bit of traffic. Freeways are fast moving environments, and they are not the kinds of places where you want to have car trouble. Unfortunately, we don’t always get what we want.

Sometimes, cars breakdown on the freeway and leave their driver stranded alongside a very busy road. Even if these cars are off to the side on the shoulder, it can still be nerve wracking to be that close to speeding vehicles. It can also be very dangerous, which is why they have to wait for emergency help...

Is Your House Being Watched by Burglars?

Is Your House Being Watched by Burglars?

There are various stereotypes that surround the idea of someone breaking into your home. It could be that a masked stranger breaks into your home in the middle of the night and steals your personal belongings while you sleep. It could also be that the burglar wears all black and sneakily climbs through a window in the dead of night while getting away with your television or gaming systems. It doesn’t matter which of these stigmas, or any others, you may have about a burglar because both of them are probably wrong.

According to Dr. Joseph Kuhns, one in four home robberies actually involve a friend or the homeowner or renter and take place in the afternoon. In fact, many times when someone breaks into your home it’s not the first time they have been there...

The Patriot Guard Riders

Patriot Guard Riders in Valencia

As Veterans Day approaches, we begin to reflect on all of those who have served in the armed forces. People who serve in the military are men and women who are willing to risk everything they have to keep their country safe. It is thanks to these amazing people, that we are able to have the lives that we do here in America.

One group in particular, understands and respects the sacrifices that our servicemen and women are making every single day. This group is called the Patriot Guard Riders and when a member of the armed forces, or a first responder, gives the ultimate sacrifice, these people will be there to show their respect to the fallen hero.

The Patriot Guard Riders never seek to cause problems. They attend the funerals of fallen heroes as invited guests...

How Bail can Affect Credit Score

Valencia Bail Bonds

It is no secret that posting bail costs quite a bit of money, even with a bail bond, because it can still be thousands of dollars. Most people who need to pay for something this expensive will typically do so using a credit card because it is the fastest and most secure way to do so. It is not often a person can pay for something so expensive with just cash.

When someone is paying for a bail bond with their credit card, they are more concerned with getting it done quickly. They want their loved one to be freed as soon as possible. They are not as concerned about how doing so might affect their credit score. It is a generous, selfless act for them to pay for a bail bond, but it is still important for them to consider their financial situation once the legal troubles begin to mellow out.
