In an extremely rare move, an internal investigation into misconduct by RPD Chief Sergio Diaz was found to have merit.

Diaz made political threats against a former candidate for public office, according to the complaint. The chief has apparently admitted wrongdoing. No disciplinary measure was mentioned in the press reports about the situation.

Soto was shot at by a Riverside sheriff's department deputy after allegedly moving his hand, but the deputy missed. Now we want to exercise our right to have transparency concerning what public servants are shooting recklessly into neighborhoods and business districts.

We weren't sure if the mainstream media were going to cover Tusday's action, because the only journalist present there was David Allen, and he is much more of a "feel-good" author of fluff pieces than a beat reporter. But apparently this article was published yesterday, although I did not see it in the print edition. Here is a link and some of the text:
