Lisa Erskine

yoga teacher, Davis:

“No, because there was (an incident) years ago, when a group of boys pushed another boy in front of a moving train. … It seems we need an outlet for young boys to learn to respect other people and not harm them.”

Terri Harris

UC Davis graduate, Davis:

“No. I’ve been in Davis for a couple of years now, and that’s just not the environment I feel like we live in. It makes me feel sad.”

Velma Edwards

business owner, Vacaville:

“No, it didn’t change my opinion, because I think it’s just one incident. We’re all different, and some people think different. So we just have to be cautious. We have to look out for one another.”

Andy Rathbone

business owner, Dixon:

“No. I’ve worked in Davis for 30 years. One incident — about anything — is not going to change my view.”

Lance Patterson

student, Davis:

“No, not really. It doesn’t really matter where you are, stuff like that still happens.”

Mel Platt

student, Davis:

“No, just because I know the accused and I don’t think that’s what actually happened. I don’t think it was actually a hate crime.”

    I find it difficult to believe that this is being treated as a hate crime. I personally know clay garzon and he is a respectful young man. the DA wants to raise his bail wtf... I cant wait for the truth be known when -e goes on the stand ...they failed to say he was jumped by two men that night and Clay was injured but everyone is sooooooo wrapped up with Mikey that perhaps some of his injuries were due to being drunk? come on clay is 19 years old and the two that jumped him were close to 30years old .. Clay Garzon is not an animal but a great kid that spent alot of time at our home these last three years. I get mad and call people the f word too..does that mean i am a person t hat should be charged with a hate crime ..bad choice of words on Clays part and just so happened that the guy was gay bfd

    I get mad and call people the f word too..does that mean i am a person t hat should be charged with a hate crime ..bad choice of words on Clays part and just so happened that the guy was gay bfd. To Cmarsh: It is a bfd. Like your friend, it sounds like you have prejudice against gay people. Why else would you use the derogatory word for gay to insult a person you are trying to hurt with your words ( hopefully not with fists , kicks or weapon)?
