Well if the guy was indeed reaching for a GUN, this was completely his fault. Obey our laws or get out of our country whether you were born here or not!

I was in Albertson's at 4th and Mountain earlier today; I must say that the experience was sublime to say the least. 2 out of 3 shoppers (by my estimate) were either shopping for others as well as themselves, or had appetites unbecoming to the average consumer. If I had the foresight that some of our leaders aspire to I would have brought along the many coupons I have accumulated over these past several months.

Sounds like a good shooting to me. Now the dead mexican's family and friends will have a car wash in Pomona to pay for his funeral.

At least ninety percent of the violent Incidents as reported here involve hispanics. Its a reality.

Oh man...I can hear it coming now. "The officer should have waited till he had been shot in his bulletproof vest before he returned fire." I wonder what sob stories we are going to hear on the post. "Oh we was trying to turn himself around...become a better person." Glad this dead beat is gone.

Let me guess, the deceased will be remembered as a fine outstanding member of society who was turning his life around (by the family)! All I can say is good job officer, you did as you were trained to. He didnt follow your commands and he paid the price. The most important thing is that you came home at the end of your shift safe and sound. I hope you,your fellow officers involved and the dispatchers on duty are all doing OK. I really could care less about the scum who tried to take the life of an officer who puts his life on the line everyday for others!

Good riddance looser. Just another gangbanging, welfare addicted, drug using, crime producing baby's daddy gone. I'll be sure to tip a 40 in his honor. Where is the car wash going to be? Can't wait to see Flacco, Gordo, Sleeper, Trigger, Trippin', Boxer and Ghost waving towels asking to help with the burial expenses.

You forgot one thing - expect this, "since you didn't know him you have no right to adversely comment on him" (although the actual postings will have a lot of misspelled words and texting shortcuts).

Upland Police are known for being crooked and making up facts to cover their $#@$. If the detectives are not manipulating facts or officers planting evidence, there would be nothing but peace in Upland. Non-whites are not reated fairly in Upland.

Examples, please. Cases, please. Why not share your experience, rather than making broad generalizations and accusations?
