The officer couldn't help it. The sight of an unarmed citizen's back is too tempting for police to resist. The psychological testing each recruit must undergo ensures the personality type desired for the job.

George Ogden the great pain in the backside liars club president.

Along with is side kicks, Steve Herfert.

Steve Herfert just couldn't resist spouting more of his racist West Covina, California carp.

Could Shelley Sanderson, Rob Sotelo (a plumber) and Andrew Mcintyre really be racists after all?

Don't ya just love it when racists come out of the closet?

Was there a plan behind all this?

Some one has removed all the posted comments from September 12, 2012 to March 15, 2013.

"Has Rafael Perez caused your business harm"

This is a TRUE statement, just ask the business he has run out of town, but not all his doing, since he is a boot-licking boy for D. Wayne Leech, hris Jeffers, Jeff Kugel, the entire Glendora city council:

Judy Nelson

Gene Murabito

Karen Davis

Joseph Santoro

Douglas Tessitor

There are a few more to be posted later.

R. Perez is just a contractor "code Enforcement" ticket writer, nothing more. If you see him wearing Glendora Police uniform and jackets then he is as always in violation of a California State Law of impersonating a "Sworn Police Officer."

A 67 year old chain smoking loser who spends 16 hours a day finger pecking out venomous, hateful BS about the evil "Repubicans" on his filthy little keyboard in his filthy little house...

Both are nothing but murderers. A violation of the public trust should be a capital offence, no matter what the violation.

I don't see what this bart cop was fearful of. If you watch the video, the kids were lined up against the wall, and were hand cuffed, with their hands behind their back. This Bart cop pulled him from the wall, threw him on the ground and shot him in the back. Period. What was he in fear of?????? This is NOT justice...Just another cop who gets away with killing someome.

The family of the man who was shot deserves a settlement for several million dollars. The Oakland Subway Police Department failed to properly train this police officer
Now, let's talk about the criminal side of things...
Although this police officer and his department were negligent and caused the death of this man, there was no CRIMINAL intent to intentionally kill this man. He was poorly trained and in a panic. He intended to reach for his "tazer" and grabbed his gun instead.
I am not saying he should have not been allowed to carry a tazer, but if he had never been issued a tazer, would he have shot this man? NO
This was not a murder. This was a very unfortunate accident. He was given two years to keep the Black community from rioting.
Now we have created a second victim
