Jury clears city and officer in fatal shooting of David Ledezma

rQRo's picture

At the beginning of January 2012, the RPD shot and killed David Ledezma, who they accused of trying to kill them because he was drunk and waving around a length of pipe. He was no threat to them whatsoever, and the pigs are full of shit. This follow-up article came out in February, but we hadn't been able to post it up until now. Rest in peace, Mr. Ledezma. Justice for David Ledezma!

Riverside sheriff's deputy tries to shoot family dog, shoots own leg instead

rQRo's picture

Finally, a little bit of justice in the news, even if that justice is of the poetic variety. This unidentified deputy, an agent of the court, was serving someone some paperwork over on the East Side when he got spooked by the dog, who was probably just trying to protect its family from the act of aggression like any good dog would. And the deputy, rather than dealing with the situation like a rational human being, opted to take out his weapon and shoot at the dog. However, due to factors unknown, although presumably not more than utter ineptitude, the officer shot only himself.

DA clears SB sheriff's detective Joshua Smith in shooting death of Clyde Murray

The DA just issued his report exonerating this detective of any wrongdoing. Never mind that the guy was running away, not toward the police, or that he was attempting to climb a fence at the time the shooter claimed he was reaching for his waistband--or was he reaching into his bag? The story seems to have changed a few times over the course of the investigation. But nevermind the details. The DA's job is to find these guys acted within policy regardless of the circumstances, right?

A Fontana resident reported today to CopWatch IE volunteers that he was "roughed up" by armed agents of the police state in the city of Fontana. He complained of broken ribs and showed dark bruises on his upper arms, where he claimed that the officer had been "grabby" with him. "They like to grab you, and squeeze hard," he said, clutching his ribcage.

Accolades continue for Dorner's killers

rQRo's picture

We've mentioned before how the armed agents of the police state, and in particular, the San Bernardino County sheriff's department, are milking the Dorner scandal for all the PR they can get out of it. Never mind that they have to turn the facts on their heads in order to construct a narrative that works to their advantage. They have the resources, the soapbox, and have made it a priority to demonize the whistle-blowing victim of the entire police system (Dorner) and to lionize and beatify those responsible for his extrajudicial assassination.
