Callers in the morning hours of Sunday, March 30, from the Angela-Chanslor neighborhood of South Pomona, reported that a police cruiser had been involved in a traffic accident and that there had been an injury. Upon further investigation, we learned that the victim was a homeless man named Michael, approximately in his mid-30s. Photos taken by neighbors showed a police cruiser half in the street and half on the sidewalk. Witnesses reported seeing the man, who had been riding his bicycle at the time, underneath the cruiser.

We received a report from one of the members of the homeless community in Pomona about one particular officer who makes life difficult for him and other unhoused people in the Pomona area. The officer's name is Diamond--we have not yet been able to determine his first name or rank.

"Whenever he sees me he gives me a ticket. For loitering, littering, camping--whatever he can think of. Any excuse to get me a warrant and take me in."

The community member, who asked to remain anonymous for the purposes of this report, was sick of the mistreatment.
