CHP shoots and kills David Mulder, 43, in Fontana

They're accusing this brother of killing someone. They're also saying that he was released as part of the statewide "realignment" of incarcerated people--part of the slander campaign against the criminalized population. We'll see what else develops in this case, but for now, we're remaining very skeptical about anything that comes out of the cops' mouths--especially Fontana PD.

Here's a few articles I was able to turn up:

FONTANA -- A California Highway Patrol officer shot and killed a man Sunday evening at a Fontana park and ride lot.
The 43-year-old transient David Mulder, who was a Post Release Community Supervision offender released from state prison to the supervision of the Probation Department as part of Gov. Jerry Brown's Public Safety Realignment Program, died at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana as a result of his confrontation with authorities.

It was initially reported to 9-1-1 that Mulder was hitting a woman near a vehicle in the park and ride lot about 6:30 p.m.

Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call at the lot at Beech Avenue and the 210 freeway when they were confronted by Mulder, according to police.

Authorities said that Mulder charged officers with a knife in hand when officers opened fire.

After Mulder was transported to the hospital, officers searched the area for the woman involved in the initial call for help and she was discovered in a car with multiple stab wounds. The woman, identified by San Bernardino County coroner's officials as 49-year-old Elisa Van Cleve of Rialto, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mulder had failed to comply with his PRCS terms of release, according to authorities, and on March 25, was sentenced to 30 days incarceration.

He was released from jail after 8 days on April 2 and placed on an electronic GPS monitoring system by the San Bernardino County Probation Department due to his homeless status.

"This is yet another glowing example of the failure of California's prison realignment. Dangerous prisoners that belong in state prison continue to be released early, time and time again, to return to our communities and endanger our families and friends," said Fontana Police Chief Rod Jones.

"Had Mulder remained incarcerated, on either recent occasion, for his full sentence, this woman would still be alive and this entire incident would not have occurred. I see this situation only continuing to get worse as California continues to reach the federally mandated levels of the prison population this year. This is going to result in approximately 9,000 more dangerous prisoners soon being released into our communities. I fear the worst is yet to come. "

Anyone with information about the incident may call Fontana police, 909-350-7700 or anonymously at 909-356-TIPS.

UPDATE: Woman is found dead after apparently being stabbed several times; man who was shot by officer at the scene had recently been released from jail

A woman died during an altercation at a Park and Ride facility in Fontana on Sunday night, and the suspect in the case -- a former state prisoner who had recently been released from jail -- was killed in an officer-involved shooting at the scene, authorities said.

The woman was identified as Elisa VanCleve, 49, of Rialto, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner's Division. She appeared to have been stabbed several times, authorities said.

At about 6:30 p.m., Fontana Police Department officers, along with California Highway Patrol officers, responded to the Park and Ride located at Beech Avenue and the Route 210 Freeway regarding a possible altercation. The original caller reported that a male was hitting a female near a vehicle in the parking lot.

A California Highway Patrol officer arrived on scene first. A man and woman were involved in a physical altercation in a car. A verbal altercation ensued, followed by the officer-involved shooting, the Coroner's Division said.

The woman was pronounced dead at 6:50 p.m.

The man who was shot was identified as David Mulder, a 43-year-old transient, according to the Fontana P.D. Mulder was transported to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, where he was subsequently pronounced dead at 7:21 p.m.

Police have discovered that Mulder had recently been released from state prison as a Post Release Community Supervision offender (PRCS), as a part of AB 109, the Public Safety Realignment Act.

Mulder had eight prior commitments to state prison dating back to 1990 for convictions of grand theft, commercial burglary, and possession of a controlled substance. These include enhancements for prior prison commitments. Five separate prison terms were served for convictions of possession of a controlled substance alone, according to the San Bernardino County Probation Department.

Following his most recent release as a PRCS offender in September, Mulder enrolled in a residential sober living facility program in Upland. Multiple contacts and searches were conducted at the facility in November and December of last year. During a December visit, the probation officer found the defendant had left the facility without reporting his address change.

Subsequent attempts to locate him were unsuccessful, and the Probation Department revoked his supervised release. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

Mulder was arrested on March 25 on the warrant. He was court ordered to serve 30 days in custody, but was released on April 2. He reported to the Probation Department, but said he was homeless. He was placed on GPS electronic monitoring due to his history of absconding and inability to report an address.

"Out of this tragic event we see an offender who was released on AB 109 because his most recent conviction was for substance abuse. However, his past criminal and state parole supervision history shows he was not amenable to supervision,” said San Bernardino County Chief Probation Officer Michelle Scray Brown. “Again, some offenders are eligible for release under Realignment, but are simply not appropriate for community supervision."

In a statement about the incident, Fontana Police Chief Rod Jones said: "This is yet another glowing example of the failure of California's prison realignment. Dangerous prisoners that belong in state prison continue to be released early, time and time again, to return to our communities and endanger our families and friends. Had Mulder remained incarcerated, on either recent occasion, for his full sentence, this woman would still be alive and this entire incident would not have occurred."

The Fontana P.D. is continuing to investigate the incident.

The name of the CHP officer involved is not being released by this agency at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident or may have witnessed it is encouraged to contact the Fontana P.D. at (909) 350-7700 or anonymously at (909) 356-TIPS in reference to case No. 13-5321
