Despite the passage of 11 years, Sgt. Paul McInerny can recall in grim detail the shootings at the Cripple Creek Saloon on Garden Grove Boulevard. A cowboy band was playing as McInerny and three other Garden Grove police officers quietly escorted John George Brown--wanted on drug charges--out of the noisy bar. Suddenly, McInerny recalled, Brown broke free, drew a .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun and emptied it. "All eight shots found human targets," McInerny said.

A friend once questioned how I could actually like someone who is on San Quentin's death row. Especially someone whose crimes are as vicious as those of James A. Melton. The answer is, I don't know. I do know it will be a melancholy day for me when Melton finally enters the death chamber, as Thomas Thompson did Tuesday. And I don't see much chance of Melton's escaping that fate.
