Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

Inmate Name GARCIATORRES, ANTOLIN
CDCR Number BE9883
Age 29
Admission Date 12/14/2017
Current Location California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility
Parole Eligible Date (Month/Year) LWOP
Parole Eligible Date Information
The inmate shown above is serving a sentence of life without the possibility of parole and is, therefore, not eligible for parole consideration at this time.

Monsters Among Us: Terebea Williams was convicted of carjacking, kidnapping and killing Kevin “John” Ruska Jr.; Sentenced to 84 years to life in prison; *Released from prison after19 years (not 84) due to Coronavirus – JUSTICE DENIED for the victim and his family*


Kevin “John” Ruska Jr

This is outrageous! She was sentenced to 84 years to life in prison, meaning that she was supposed to serve 84 years before being able to apply for parole. Personally, I do not believe that any violent inmate should be released due to COVID19. Especially killers. They forfeited the right to get any special consideration. This killer already had her habeas corpus denied, so this should not have even been a consideration. I feel so horrible for Kevin “John” Ruska Jr. family. They are not taking it well, and I wouldn’t either.
