"Police Owed Apology"- great letter unfortunately the white supremist will turn this letter into another immigration bashing opportunity. Thank you Officer Vasquez for pointing out the diversity and hard work found in the Police Force in Pomona. While I may not always agree with every thing the Pomona PD does- I respect officers like Vasquez and Chief Romero who have tried harder then their predecessors to build greater communication between community and Law Enforcement. I hope we can build on this new found respect and not allow the anticipated dialogue to get into a "blame game" tit for tat senario. Together we have important work to do for the community of Pomona.

You certainly have a problem---you are extremely racist; The term 'white supremist' is included in every post that you write. Carrizosa was a troublemaker the first time that she was on the city council, and she has wasted no time in starting up all over again. For someone that lacks any diplomacy or social skills, it is hard to believe that she is a school teacher- No wonder the Pomona school district has such low scores in the California school system...Carrizosa should apologize to the Pomona Police Dept., the city council, and the residents of Pomona for her behavior- then she should promptly resign her seat on the city council.

DoUsAFavor, What does "white supremist" have to do with this? Your postings make you sound like a racist. The word "prejudiced" comes from the term to "pre-judge". Exactly what you are doing in your posting. You have pre-judged other people or races by saying "the white supremist will turn this letter into another immigration bashing opportunity" You say it as if you anticipate and hope it will happen. It's truly sad when people don't recognize the racism in themselves.

Illegal is as Illegal does, I agree with you. If she doesn't resign, a petition should be started to recall her.

But what is more disturbing is realizing she is teaching our young people. I sincerely hope she isn't quietly instilling her racism in these kids.

Eddie Vazquez was correct in saying that the entire council owes the Pomona Police Department an apology. Carrizosa certainly owes the first apology, not only to the Police Department, but also to the entire population of Pomona for representing and speaking for us in such a disrespectful manner.

But for the council to sit there and listen to her with not even one member voicing disapproval or even one word of disagreement shames the council and the city they represent. Personally, I feel that our city suffers enough shame because of the reputation we have, our strong gang and crime influences, lack of developer interest and lack of progress, not keeping up with neighboring cities. We are already shamed by those things, and we certainly don't need our own city council adding more shame.

While I agree completely with Police Officer Association member Eddie Vazquez' letter, it was impossible not to notice that when he noted that it's members had men, women, blacks, asians, whites and hispanics, that hispanics and asians were capitalized, and blacks and whites were not. Was this a Freudian slip by Mr. Vazquez, or an error by the Daily Bulletin?

In regards to police being owed an apology for the comments of a council persons remarks regarding the 4 way check point. Are you kidding !!! These checkpoints clearly violate all tenets of illegal search and seizure. Wrapping it up with, we are making the streets safe by tring to crack down on drunk driving is stiil an excuse for overzealous police agencies.

If they were really concerned about drunk driving, sponsor a tipsy tow program or sponsor a taxi program for local bars. The problem isn't going to be eliminated on the merits of the crime and punishment program that is in effect now. Get the drivers off the street smartly, Don't violate my civil rights.

The Police Dept. is the ONLY good thing about POMONA!
This cuncil is a joke! This Christina is so out of touch with the citizens it is more than I can take.
She is part of the old school of Council and was brought in about a year ago. SHE IS A WITCH!

You don't have a clue what the term racism means- so don't try to minimize your white supremist ways. I never use the term racist to refer to you because you a just a mere bigot. There is a big different, in order to be a racist you must have power to control an entire race- you have no power!

And guess what John it happened- the white supremist and does like you who side with their leanings responded. You don't know the meaning of racism- all your long winded, meaningless dribble to try to justify the white supremist position is proof of this. If it walks like a duck and acts like a duck then it must be a duck- you are a confused duck. If those who respond to my post seem defensive there is obviously a reason- people don't need to defend a position if they are not affected by it.

Pomona is Gang Town USA. Nobody seems to want to change that. These gang people go out and commit crimes in the surrounding Cities cost the local tax payeers millions of dollars Pomona is not paying there freight. The fact is Pomona is burdening the Police the courts the jail. It time they start paying what they are costing..

It is clear that Pomona needs new leadership. The mayor (not mentioned in this commentary) has had numerous acts of unprofessionalism in the past and the council members seem to be following in her example. The police officers and the PPOA should picket at the next city council meeting.
