This was a story that made quite a few headlines. First that she was arrested, then that the officer who arrested her was following orders from the city attorney, then the city attorney's denial of the allegations. Yet another example of the authorities using force to squelch dissent when confronted with uncomfortable truths and people unwilling to timidly back down. Here's a rundown:

rQRo's picture

Just wanted to give a quick update about the men shot by an off-duty cop at the Chino Hills Shoppes. The SB County sheriff, which is investigating the incident, initially refused to divulge any information about the officer they identified as the "victim." In doing so, they violated transparency requirements, according to Peter Scheer, an advocate for the First Amendment. Shortly after that, they did release his name, but not much else. There was a Daily Bull article about it a little while back.

I heard about this shooting yesterday, but I had no idea that the shooter was a cop until the reports came out this morning. His name hasn't been released, even though he is apparently talking to the press? Here's the article from the Daily Bull:

Shooting at Shoppes by off-duty policeman stemmed from road rage

Sheriff's deputy accused of sexual misconduct at West Valley detention center

I'm not much one for sexual shaming, or for hating on people getting theirs, but there are rules about this sort of thing and at the very least, we should be able to expect that public officials adhere to those rules and standards of conduct. Here's the press release:
