  1. I wonder if Nathaniel Blalock and Duncan Martinez were also students at UCLA, or just 2 roommates that Ronald Baker accepted into his apartment to help him pay the rent. Not that it would make any difference, but it’s probably a good idea to live with other students if you’re a student, rather than just pick up 2 stray dogs. I’m glad Blalock got sentenced to LWOP, but I don’t think Martinez should have gotten the same sentence – perhaps 10 years. He didn’t participate in the murder, and he did become a witness for the prosecution.
