  1. Interesting how other news outlets with real reports mentioned that Jose Talavera and Maritza Lopez Perez were the suspects.
    I guess KCBS is pandering to the Latino community. The people have the right to know that it is not Joe Smith and Sally McFenn that are committing these crimes, but the garbage from south of our border.
