Just as a reminder tomorrow, April 30, 2019, we are scheduled to be back in court. The jury is not scheduled to come in until 1:30 PM.

The morning session will be a continued 1118.1 motion, the defense asking the judge to make a directed verdict claiming that the prosecution has not made their case.

Judge Zuniga is expected to rule tomorrow morning but she is well known for not doing so.

Court is scheduled to start at 9:30 AM but with no jury coming in she is typically late and being the first day of the week after a long break she may not come in at all as what is been come to know as “typical Tuesday.”

Scheduled to testify tomorrow is Dr. Leo, the false confession expert, well known in his field, and known to the public in the Netflix series “making of a murder.”

We will be there to let you know what happened.



#88 Praveen Singh 2/8/2019-2/22/2019

Had originally taken the Fifth Amendment on a prior court date was given immunity to testify on these dates

Described himself as a lifelong friend of Frank Carson, in fact, said he was like a father to him. Said he was aware that he was being investigated in the disappearance of Korey Kauffman. Had done some investigative work for Frank Carson. He stated he had done some social activities between his family and Frank Carson family.

Testified that his business has been a victim of the armed invasion, where one of his employees have been shot. The only thing taken he claims is what he described as a “murder bag.” He said that bag was given to him anywhere from six months to a year prior to the invasion of the office. When Frank Carson gave him the so-called murder bag, he says he never looked at it to see what was there but stated Frank Carson and told him it would put them all away for a long time with the law enforcement were to get it. The only thing taken in that invasion was this so-called murder bag.

He was not pleased with the investigation being done by the Modesto Police Department and had called Steve “The juice” Jacobson on a Sunday morning at his home to get him to respond to his business. Praveen Singh at the time of his testimony was and still is facing 19 felony counts that range from welfare fraud to real estate fraud to bank fraud and more. Some of those felony charges are in federal court. He stated he is not looking for a deal for him and/or members of his family that are facing some of these charges.

Praveen Singh had also expressed some concerns or fears in regard to the blogging done in this case. Had told Steve “The Juice” Jacobson that he felt in fear for his life from the bloggers. Also, note in Steve” the Juice” Jacobson incident report the first two pages of the narrative talked about the two bloggers there in the courtroom every day. A podcast for around that time was downloaded and kept as evidence in the business invasion report, in addition to a screenshot of a written report that was done that day. Not sure how the blogger sitting in the courtroom have been related to an invasion of a business on McHenry Avenue.

#89 Scott McFarlane 2/26/2019- 2/28/2019-finished on 3/7/2019 after lengthy litigations.

Working under a testimonial plea agreement, which was questioned by the defense attorneys before he testified. Defense claiming is a due process violation the way the agreement is worded.

Testified had known the Atwal’s for some time and hung out a pop n cork, both on and off duty. A neighbor of Kevin Pickett and his family which included Korey Kauffman. Stated he never had any issues with Korey Kauffman personally. Did not recall many conversations  at pop n cork in regards to Korey Kauffman, also said he doesn’t believe he said some things he is accused of saying.

Had been contacted by Kevin Pickett and Don Poma when Korey Kauffman went missing, he advised them to contact the sheriff department. Said he did recall an injury to Daljit Atwal’s hand but did not remember when he had seen those injuries.

Stated the Pickett family seem to be nice people had no real problems with them and had stopped Korey Kauffman one time for a taillight violation.

He denied doing any type of surveillance on the Pickett property. Also noted he had seen Daljit Atwal with firearms at the store with one being on an ankle holster.

Admitted to seeing Korey Kauffman riding his bike down the street and at one point believed is it to be on April 1, 2012, but now is not sure about the date. But did tell Tony Kaufman that he saw Korey when he was irrigating on that Sunday morning.

McFarlane testified that the Atwal brothers told him they were looking after Frank Carson’s property but again could not remember any timeframe that this was done. He was never asked personally to do checks of the property on or off duty.

Had rototilled a small area on the side lot of the Pop N Cork for Robin Attenhofer to plant a garden. It appeared the area he rototilled was the same area the Robert Woody pointed out the body was buried in the lot.

Recalled when the search warrant was done at POP N CORK. Also felt that the Atwal’s were getting very suspicious of him.

Was attacked viciously by Marlisa Ferriera and went into a lengthy set of questioning in regard to the CHP code of ethics.

Had done many stolen vehicles recoveries during his CHP days and typically no keys or FOB’s are with recoveries. Had no personal knowledge if cars could be started without a key fob.

Melissa Ferreira had declared him as a hostile witness.

He had been contacted by the Atwal’s after the search warrant, they were looking for some advice.

Scott McFarlane had contacted Deputy Ken Barringer who was in charge of the missing person case, advising of statements made by Robert Woody about the property and some containers. It also made a second phone call a month or two later with some Robert Woody information.

Investigators never contacted him again for two more years then he was accused of trying to hide information or obstruct the investigation. Because of the lack of contact.


With all the talk lately key fob for today’s cars, and the ability of some creative thieves to use electronics to access the frequency on the key fob itself and the frequency that connected to the vehicle. I began researching a bit about some devices that they have like for credit cards to protect the radio signals on those cards.

Four $9.95 I purchased a two pack fob protector for keyless car key fobs. I figure for the price what the heck I would check it out.

Here’s what I discovered:

In my new vehicle, the fob has what I feel an extremely long range of operation, I feel it is definitely way too long. I put my fob in the pouch, trying to push the buttons to the side of the pouch, and I was not able to control the locks are the remote start.

I then ran an errand uptown, took the fob out of the pouch remotely started the vehicle, then returned it to the pouch. Upon entering the vehicle, I was not able to put the vehicle in drive as it was saying not “detecting key fob” on the dashboard. Note, the pouch with the key fob in it was sitting on my center console inside the truck, it still did not detect the key fob from a distance of inches.

No matter where you are, home, office, the store, restaurant there a lot of bad guys out there trying to ruin your day, especially in lackadaisical California. My particular key fob is rather large but fits in the pouch easily, even with attached keys. Also, there’s a second pocket for other items and an attached key ring for like a house key on the exterior of the pouch.

Just thought I’d share that little bit of information and to give yourself a little security with your vehicles as we do live in California, the auto theft capital of the world.

Here is the device that I purchased on

Upgraded Faraday Key Fob Protector(2Pack), Niceline Premium Faraday Bag Key Fob | Anti-Theft RFID Key Fob Protector for Keyless Car Key fobs | Blocks RFID/WiFi/GSM/LTE & RFID Blocking Sleeves(2Pack)

Note it says it is a four pack two pouches and also comes with two RFID chip protector sleeve for credit cards.

Also, there are varying styles and sizes of these pouches, take a look and see what might work best for you. Very affordable protection.


A proposed bill to reduce the amount of time even dangerous offenders must spend on parole after being released from prison is the latest in a series of “criminal justice reform” laws and initiatives which actually undermine public safety in California.

Assembly Bill 1182 by Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo (D-Los Angeles), would reduce parole supervision from one year to 180 days for serious felons, including sex offenders. Carrillo recently traveled with Gov. Gavin Newsom to El Salvador “to examine the root causes of migration and discuss California’s efforts to provide relief and humanitarian aid to asylum seekers fleeing poverty and violence in their home countries.”

“If passed, it will march in lockstep alongside Proposition 47Proposition 57SB 1391 and AB 109 in the parade of criminal-coddling legislation that the governor and state Legislature have foisted on an unwitting public in recent years,” Michele Hanisee, President of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys of Los Angeles County reports.

“Democrats really have already gutted state parole mightily,” said Michael Rushford, President of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation. When asked the motive behind the bill, Rushford said “to help prior offenders get back to a normal life. Only the focus is on what an ex-con feels,” Rushford said. “What’s best for the inmate, rather than public safety.”

Parole is the process an offender goes through, under supervision, to get back to a normal life following a prison sentence.

Rushford said since ex-convicts are statistically already much more likely to re-offend, Democrats are manipulating the parole system so the recidivism statistics won’t reflect reality. In fact, Rushford said, that’s been the motive behind all of the “criminal justice reforms” since the prison realignment bill, Assembly Bill 109, was passed in 2011. Every time violent crime in California was on the rise, Democrats have passed legislation or ballot initiatives to redefine and decriminalize violent crime so the statistics go down, according to Rushford.

Rushford explains AB 1182:

“It would shave a year off the time on parole for high risk criminals released from prison, and it would discharge offenders from parole if they go six months without a violation.  This follows other sentencing reforms aimed at reducing incarceration for habitual criminals including; AB109 which transferred most felons coming out of prison from parole to county probation and eliminated prison time for most property and drug felonies; Proposition 47, which turned a host of felonies into misdemeanors encouraging thieves to continue stealing, and SB1391, which prohibits the worst murderers under age 16 from being tried in adult court, gifting those convicted in juvenile court with release at age 25.”

Two reliably liberal think tanks in San Francisco have recently reported that crime is down in California. “This is fake news,” Rushford said. “District Attorneys and Sheriffs are telling us that thousands of property crimes converted to misdemeanors are no longer reported to police and all kinds of theft, burglaries, car break-ins and drug crimes are rising in every community.  The FBI preliminary crime report for 2018 found that violent crime had increased in 58.3% of the state’s largest cities.”

Rushford said that currently there are 25,000 unreported property crimes across the state. He’s concerned that the property crimes will escalate to more violent crimes, with no police enforcement or prosecutorial authority. “We are incubating violent criminals in California.”

Michele Hanisee offers “some of AB 1182’s lowlights:”

  • AB 1182 would reduce from one year to 180 days the amount of parole time for certain criminals who are released from state prison after serving sentences for serious felonies, including horrific sex offenses.
  • AB 1182 would drop the parole-service requirement from either to two or three years to either one or two years for high-risk offenders.
  • AB 1182 would require that criminals who have been released to county parole supervision be discharged from parole after six consecutive months in the absence of a parole violation. Under current law, these offenders must only be considered for discharge.
  • AB 1182 also strips the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation of its ability to recommend certain offenders be retained on parole.

Six real criminal justice reform bills were killed last year in the California Legislature which would have expanded the definition of violent crime to include human trafficking, elder and dependent adult abuse, assault with a deadly weapon, rape, and other crimes most Californians consider violent. AB 27, AB 67, AB 197, SB 75, SB 652 and SB 770 would have corrected unclear language and serious flaws in Proposition 57, but were killed. The bills are explained in a California Globe article in March.

Since 2016, what has transpired is the decriminalization of crimes previously considered violent. Because the language in Proposition 57 is imprecise, it has resulted in the release of felony rapists in situations when the victim did not or could not grant consent. The initiative specified early parole for persons who committed non-violent offenses. However, the initiative never specified what is considered a non-violent felony.

Prop. 47 reduced a host of felonies to misdemeanors, including drug crimes, date rape, and all thefts under $950, even for repeat offenders who steal every day.

As Prop. 57 stands, crimes such as human trafficking, child abduction, elder and dependent adult abuse, assault with a deadly weapon, and rape of an unconscious person, are not considered “violent crimes.”



Google knows everywhere you go

  • Google keeps a log of everywhere you go if you use
  • Google apps and services on your phone.
  • It has a creepy level of detail that might surprise you.
  • Google makes it easy to find this information and
  • limit how it can track you, though, so here’s how to do that.


Google knows a lot about you and, if you use Google Maps or other Google apps, it stores a copy of everywhere you go. I recently performed Google’s “Privacy Checkup” to learn a bit more about what it knows about me, and was pretty surprised at the level of detail it had on my exact locations.

I picked a random date: April 16, 2019. It knew everywhere I went,  including that I took Route 95 to our office in northern New Jersey and that I arrived at 7:58 a.m. It knew that at 1:02 p.m. I drove to Jersey City and took a train in to Manhattan to the New York Stock Exchange before returning home at 4:38 p.m. And it has a copy of the pictures I took at each location.

It’s a creepy level of detail.

Google says that it uses location history to “create a private map of where you go with your signed-in devices even when you aren’t using a specific Google service” and that the “map is only visible to you.” The data, it says, provides “improved map searches and commute routes, as well as helping you to rediscover the places you’ve been and the routes you’ve traveled.”

I don’t really care about that information. I know the roads I drove on April 16, and I can’t see any reason why Google should store it, even if it’s only for my use. I never know who might be able to access that data, even if Google promises it’s private.

You can stop Google from storing your location history and delete what it has already stored. Here’s how.

How to stop Google from tracking your location history

Google keeps a creepy amount of information on where you’ve been.

  • First, go to This is a good page to bookmark, since it gives you granular control over lots of privacy settings.
  • Next, scroll down to “Location History” and choose “Manage Location History.”
  • This is where you’ll see everywhere you’ve been. It’s a freaky level of detail.
  • Tap “Manage Location History” at the bottom of the screen again.
  • Toggle the button to turn off Location History.

To delete your history, do this:

  • Tap the settings button on the “Location History” map.
  • Select “Delete all location history.”

Turn off the option that allows Google to track your location history.

That’s not all, though.

Google will continue tracking your location unless you also turn off a separate “Web & App Activity” tracker. Google says it tracks your location from apps to provide “better recommendations, and more personalized experiences in Maps, Search, and other Google services.”

Turn off the option that allows Google to track your web and app activity.

To turn off web and app activity, do this:
