Riverside sheriffs deputies shoot at (and miss) unidentified men in Hemet

They are accusing these brothers of armed robbery. Looks like they found someone and shot at them for "reaching towards his waistband"--the classic justification for opening fire. But it looks like they were able to escape. We hope more information comes out about this incident. Until then, here is the link:

Fontana PD officer Joshua Patty shoots at Dunrae Sims, 33

rQRo's picture

Mainstream media outlets are reporting about a police shooting in Fontana. According to these reports, police were summoned to the Starbucks on Baseline after a call reporting somebody "suspicious." Evidently, things escalated to the point of the officer, one Joshua Patty, firing his weapon. Fortunately, Mr. Sims was unharmed, as the projectile did not enter his body. Unfortunately, however, Sims now stands accused of attempted murder of a police officer. Police are claiming that they found a knife among Mr. Sims' possessions.

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.

Here's a link to the Press-Enterprise article:

Off-duty cop shoots at (and misses) youngsters in Moreno Valley

rQRo's picture

Another incident from the beginning of the month. We know that these officers are shooting at people all the time, but it is amazing that even when they are off-duty, they are given the same anonymity as when they shoot in the line of duty. This case is particularly cryptic--the agency he works for is not disclosed, and even though the victims (referred to by the police state as "suspects") are not charged with anything, (i.e., didn't do anything) there is no investigation or charges brought against the aggressor.

Here's the sheriff's press release:

SB Sheriffs shoot at and miss "uncooperative" man in Yucaipa

Found this one on the sheriff's website back at the beginning of the month. Interesting story if nothing else. They shoot at a brother in Yucaipa, claiming he shoot at them first. They miss him, but in the meantime, he gets away. At least that's how the cops tell it...

RPD shoots at (and misses) driver of police vehicle

rQRo's picture

Not much information here--probably because the police are embarrassed about getting their car stolen and having nothing to show for it. But they did fire a weapon at someone, and it doesn't appear to have been because they were in fear of their lives, which is the only circumstance in which they are supposed to be permitted to use deadly force. Here's an article from the P-E (the video is just an interview with reporter Brian Rokos--it contains only slightly more detail than the text article):
