perhaps LULAC itself should wait for the results of the investigation before stirring up hispanic ire with their comments...

Let's face it, when you're brown, the white man puts you down. This show of force reminds everyone of the simple fact.

Remember the alleged suspect dictated the force being utilized...Unfortunately, she had to pay with her life about it...

So an old helpless Latina woman having a seizure deserves the death penalty?

Would you feel the same Donelle if it was your white mom who was the victim?

You must be an abortion supporter and see this as just another way of culling the herd.

Nationwide many people with psychiatric troubles end up dead after police are called. If it was my family member I don't think I would have called police. There's also the possibility of suicide by cop here.

LULAC while they serve a purpose and represent the Hispanic community, needs to step back on this one and take a reality check. Lets get results. Lets apply some common sense. Give me a break.

Lulac merely asked if cit training was given to officers was sufficient. AS it turns out only half of salinas PD have taken the 32 hr class. The training won't stop suicide by cop's, but quite a few cities require that all police take the training . I thinks it's nice that Lulac took some time off from drinking and dancing to ask this question.

A helpless woman?

If you bothered to speak with her family you would have learned that she had a history of drug abuse and was the “black sheep” of the family. Now she is the “cash cow” which is why they are suing and crucifying the officers who are good men and are the real victims.

Wow! Your pea-brained mentality and constant excuses for those who commit the most crimes anyway is such a revelation! Get a life...
You must be another one of those that use the lame excuse of being "opressed" instead of being a man and taking responsibility for yourself and your own actions. We understand...we hear it all the time...it's not your fault...we are used to you blaming everybody else!
(If this is above your head...I'm sure you'll blame it on the white man anyway)

down with dope, up with hope.

Sorry she is deceased, but she should have made better choices, the cops were just doing what we pay them to do, protect us.
