Riverside sheriffs shoot at (and miss) Rolando Soto, 28

As is normally the case, the details of the situation are not clear, but it does appear that the officer in question, a Riverside sheriff's deputy, discharged his or her firearm. There is nothing to indicate that the robbery that Soto is being accused of involved weapons of any kind, so one must certainly question the use of (potentially) lethal force against someone who was fleeing.

This story has gotten some press, including TV coverage. The officer is claiming that the victim pulled an assault rifle on him. And despite apparently hitting him, the brother was still able to escape? Something doesn't quite add up here...

Ontario PD slanders Jose Herrera, releases no information about violent officer

There is a new article in the Daily Bulletin about the Jose Herrera shooting case. In it, the police accuse Mr. Herrera of carrying a knife during the incident. They even released a photograph of him carrying...something. It's not clear in the photo what it is. But that doesn't stop the OPD from using this still image as a justification for their barbaric act. The headline in the print edition reads, "Man shot by police had been drinking," which is just another attempt to blame the victim.

Here's the article in today's Daily Bulletin:

Ontario PD shoots and kills Jose Raul Herrera, 59

Just when you thought Mother's Day was for spending quality family time, in comes the Ontario police department to ruin everything.

It is unclear why police were even on the scene, which is a working-class neighborhood near 4th and Vineyard.

It's not the only thing police are being tight-lipped about. They have also failed to disclose what the events were that lead up to the deadly shooting, what--if any--weapon he had (they are claiming he was armed), and of course, they have not disclosed who was responsible for committing the shooting.

Riverside sheriffs shoot and kill Mickey Larragoitiy, 58, in Menifee

This is from late April, but it is a horrible story and a horrible example of what goes wrong when police are too eager to escalate and are incapable of dealing with people in crises or with mental health issues. Justice for Mickey!
