According to news reports, deputies from the Los Angeles sheriff's department followed a "suspect" all the way to Apple Valley and shot him there. The shooting was filmed by a motorist stopped in his vehicle with his daughter, but the footage does not make clear the context of the encounter. At any rate, there are a lot of unanswered questions and other suspicious circumstances surrounding this latest incident of police violence in the IE. Here's a link to the video from KABC:

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:

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.
