While there werenumerous questions,the councilgenerally supported state andnational efforts and asked staff tocome back with more informationabout a variety of ideas from creat-ing a permit system for San Brunoretailers to establishing an anony-mous tip line encouraging residentsto report the illegal use or sale of guns.“Whether it be pipeline safety orgun violence,it needs to start fromthe bottom up because it’s not goingto start at the top,said Mayor JimRuane,who added the proposedchanges won’t solve all issues withgun violence but perhaps may helpprevent something bad from hap-pening. “It’s very important to me.Something needs to be done.”Councilman Ken Ibarra agreed,adding there were still many ques-tions but “we need to take a standand start.”City Attorney Marc Zafferanoexplained staff was looking togauge the council opinions aboutthe national,state and local options.The council supported the state andnational efforts.

Lions,bears removedfrom gangster’s property
BUCHAREST,Romania — A manknown as Nutzu the Pawnbroker has beenindicted for leading a fearsome criminalgang,but the public seems to be moreinterested in his pets:four lions and twobears.Ion Balint — his real name — had longbeen known to have an affinity for wildbeasts in his home.“You said I fed men to the lions?”Balint was recorded saying on a video-tape as he rode away from prison on ablack stallion in 2010. “Why don’t youcome over and I’ll give you some lions!”Authorities won’t confirm that the lionsand bears were used to intimidate rivals athis high-walled and heavily guardedestate in the poorest part of Bucharest.The compound also contained less fear-some beasts,including thoroughbredhorses and canaries.Balint,48,a stocky man with a mus-tache and a receding hairline,oftenappears dressed in T-shirts and tracksuits.The Romanian news media were awashin unconfirmed reports about Balint’sexcesses,reporting that he used the lionsand bears to intimidate rivals and that hishouse contained a torture chamber.His son-in-law,Marius Vlad,told theAssociated Press on Wednesday that thereports were false.“Many untruths are being reported,”hesaid.Bystanders and relatives who gatherednear the gates of the estate describedBalint as a good neighbor and an animallover,and said they weren’t bothered byroaring lions.“We can hear them every day,but onlywhen they’re hungry or the female is inheat,said Gabriela Ionescu,36,clutch-ing her toddler daughter’s hand. “Theydon’t disturb us at all.”Authorities allege that Balint and hisbrother Vasile headed a criminal network which controlled much of the underworldactivity in Bucharest,a city of 2 million.Some 400 police and detectives wereinvolved in the investigation which led tothe arrest last week of 67 suspects,including the Balint brothers.In 2009,Balint was convicted of human trafficking,violence and pimping,and sentenced to 13 years in prison. Thatwas reduced to six years,but Balint wasfree after a year.

The golden years of 88-year-old AlbertKorn were “sadly reduced to exhibit boxesand evidence envelopes”rather than dignityand well-earned retirement because TylerJames Hutchinson beat him severely beforemaking off in the Belmont man’s Jaguar with jewelry and his wallet,a prosecutor told jurorsyesterday during closing arguments in thetransient’s murder trial.“At his core,the defendant is just a thief who cares more about property than people,”prosecutor Morris Maya said.Maya asked jurors to convict Hutchinson,25,of felony murder — first-degree murderduring the commission of another felony,namely burglary or robbery — which wouldsend him to prison for life without parole.Jurors do not need to think that Hutchinsonmeant to kill or even harm Korn,just that hisactions led to a death.Hutchinson beat Korn so severely with hisfists during a June 2,2009 home invasion rob-bery he died two weeks later and a verdict of anything less would be an “injustice,Mayasaid.But defense attorney Jim Thompson,whocalled no witnesses,told jurors the evidenceproving Hutchinson broke into the Hallmark Drive home or was even seen in the area wascircumstantial. He also said there are ques-tions of whether Korn’s fatal brain injury thatled to a coma and eventual death were causedby his client’s alleged blows because thehematoma was on the side rather than thefront or back of the head.“Just because a scenario is plausible,does-n’t make it true,”Thompson said.Thompson didn’t out-right declare Hutchinsonnot guilty but asked the jury to question if the pros-ecution proved its casebeyond a reasonable doubt.“The answer to thatquestion,I believe is no,”Thompson said.According to Maya’scase,Korn was at home alone the afternoon hedied,his wife having left for the PeninsulaJewish Community Center and his grown sonmaking a run to The Home Depot for addressnumbers around 3:17 p.m. Matthew Kornfound his injured father in the kitchen andthought initially the man had fallen and called911. He would later slip into a coma and staythat way until removed from life support. Hisinjuries from repeated blunt force includedfacial trauma,internal bruising,brain injuryand a blown pupil,Maya said while display-ing graphic photos of an injured Korn for jurors.Inside the home,investigators found a win-dow open with its screen removed,the officeand master bedroom ransacked,blood andteeth knocked from Korn and a bloody tank top with DNA matching Korn. Maya saidHutchinson encountered Korn in the officeafter looking through other rooms,beat theman,then continued to steal before fleeing inthe car with the music blaring. The car waslater abandoned with Hutchinson’s DNA andfingerprints inside and the jewelry has neverbeen recovered.Hutchinson was arrested in Yolo Countyafter a series of similar home invasion rob-beries that began just days after Korn’s beat-ing. When interviewed by Belmont police,Korn claimed no involvement.According to Morris,the recorded interviewindicated Hutchinson said once,“I ain’t brokeinto no house.Another time,“I can’t tell youI was in Belmont because I wasn’t in Belmont.I was up here.”But,Maya told jurors,“an awful lot of hisDNA was in Belmont. An awful lot of his fin-gerprints were in Belmont.”Jurors began deliberations Wednesday after-noon. They can find Hutchinson not guilty orguilty of first-degree or second-degree murderor involuntary manslaughter. Hutchinson isalso charged with robbery,burglary and thespecial allegations of great bodily injury andcommitting felony murder.Prosecutors opted not to seek the deathpenalty in part because of questions overHutchinson’s mental fitness which also led tohis committal at Napa State Hospital afterbeing convicted in Yolo County and prior tobeginning trial in San Mateo County.He remains in custody without bail.
