      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

I'm guessing there is evidence strong enough to call it a homicide, i.e. bullet holes, blood, etc. I doubt they would be calling it if there wasn't something obvious on there.

Jesus, the poor guy... Maybe he ran into something he wasn't meant to see and he was "taken care of" ?

 

Hope they find him soon.

I have never met the man, but damn I'm sorry to hear this. Only time will tell but I can think of several scenarios that would make the cops suspicious without involving murder, especially if he took the boat out for a test run and was dismasted offshore. Keeping fingers crossed, he may still be alive out there in a PFD.

Many police agencies employ homicide detectives to investigate these types of cases. The Sheriff's Department spokesman in the video merely said "Homicide investigators are investigating the incident." There is a big difference between a death being investigated "as a homicide" (as the reporter in the video claims) and being investigated "by homicide investigators." I don't know anything about this particular case, but it may be that (surprise) the media made an assumption based on a misunderstanding of the involvement of homicide investigators.

 

The OC Register, for example, does not mention the homicide possibility, and its story was posted after the CBS video. http://www.ocregiste...g-amormino.html

 

 

Looks like a Cheetah 27 isn't it?

 

What the hell happened to it? And a homicide? Yikes.

 

edit: okay - maybe a 30

Why not? There were floating bales of marijauna recovered off of Dana Point earlier this year.

A panga full of illegals came ashore while we were surfing in El Porto a few weeks ago, so there is plenty of stuff going on offshore. Ironically the boat that came through the line-up found one of the only fences on the entire beach. (By a power plant)
