On January 16th, 1999 two people robbed a Cost-Co and a hair salon, here in the Santa Cruz area. A third person drove the car. Unfortunately, Emma Freeman, Anthony Cristifani and Craig Dickson got caught.

The insurgent who rebels daily is not a reasonable person, nor full of good sense; she always creates a sense of unease. Those who take care not to do so live quiet lives: if any instinct were to push them to an excess of passion, reason would quickly persuade that it is in their own interests to cast such foolish inspirations aside.
