  1. Go to Heck Rexroad

    “Al is trying to fix Woodland” “This is a Woodland issue or this is not a Woodland issue” Blah, Blah! Is this important?? Hello! The point is that the Gang Injunction is a racist piece of litigation and it’s attacking Latino/Minority communities every where in Yolo County, so I have no idea what the heck was the point of this idiotic Rexroad. The way he expressed himself gave me the vibe that he simply doesn’t give a hoot about what happened that 30th of April. He has no concerned. What was the point of the vigil he asked? Well it was a simple gesture of our condolences to the Gutierrez family [ass whole.]
