Instead of trying to put Rosendo Gomez and his family in the bad part of the story, why don't you look past that. Yeah one young man was "KILLED" not murdered. Murdered is such a strong word! The other is in jail. The stupidity of other people caused this. Not Cliff nor Rosendo. WHy don't you judge the person who started shooting and was the cause of this horrible situation???? There is always 3 sides to a story: Cliff's witnesses story, Rosendo's side and the TRUTH. Which will never be known... How can you ask for the death penalty? It's not like Rosendo got the gun and shot him to death.... it was obviously an accident. Let me ask you a question to all the people reading this comments: What you would if you were in that situtation? What if they were shooting in a parkinglot?? What would you do? Would you stick around to see what is going to happen or are you going try to get the heck out of there. I'm not saying what happend is right and ok, because I know it's not. But it doesn't mean he did it on purpose!I'm sure 99 % of the people in that club were either drunk OR WERE DRINKING!!! We all need to go past all this and pray for better days to come. It's hard to move past a death and your love ones being gone but it's part of life. I do really hope that you can forgive Rosendo for his actions. I know it's easy but you have to forgive to forget!!!!May GOD BLESS THE FAMILY OF CLIFFORD SLATER AND ROSENDO GOMEZ!!!!!
Wow this is Clifford's sister and I never knew that this was here until today.I wanted to comment on this post because I think that it is ridiculous. No matter what happened that night, Cliff was standing and the killer was behind the wheel. It was on purpose and no matter if he didn't get behind the wheel and say to himself that he was going to do it, he was drunk and wrong so there is no excuse for it. Wow to say yeah one young man was killed like the killing means less because in your words it wasn't murder is ridiculous. Wow I hope that none of your family ever passes away because I would hate for you to just politely get over it like its nothing.Wow

this was an accident wrote:
Rosendo we love you to death and this was an accident nobody knows the other side of the story. Keep ur head up and have faith in God. Hopefully the true people who are responsible for this get behind the bars cuz u were trying to protect ur family and urself from danger of being shot at. We love u and god bless u. We will get through this as a family becuz eventhough everything is being blamed on u by the media only god and ur family truly know what occured that night. God will help us get through this. As for Cliff's family we are truly sorry for ur loss, i know this will be hard but the we have you in our prayers also as this was truly an accident and not a murder. Anybody could have died that night and even more peole.
I was there when it happened. That was no accident. He got behind the wheel with the intention to do harm. Why else would he rev his engine before speeding off into an area with peoples back to him? Wasn't nobody tryna shoot. Cliff was walking about a foot and a half next to me.

I would like to say something to Jose Rosendo Gomez, and the family member of the above post.
First let me say that GOD in heaven does not take care of MURDERER's. St Michael the protector of warriors will not allow that. No one wants to hear his excuses for what happened that night. The fact of the matter remains that Rosendo drank. Rosendo and four other "homies" jumped in a 2008 Chevy Truck drunk and DROVE IT!!! This very reason is why the DUI rate is on the rise!! It wasn't the family lawnmower, or go cart. And Clifford was no ordinary MAN that your BOY killed.
I watched Cliff grow up at Ft. Bragg NC since he was 12. Cliff earned a spot in my family and in my home. Cliff was one of the few young men that had his head on straight. He had a plan, and he implimented his plan through high school being the Battalion Commander for his high school JROTC class. Cliff had all the abilities and skills that any true young leader had. The United States Air Force lost a great Airmen that night, this country lost a future leader of his community, and branch of military. Clifford Slater was a protector of this great nation that Rosendo TOOK FOR GRANTED that night. No one is judging Rosendo, we do not have that right. But GOD will judge him when his time comes. Cliff's family and I are putting trust in the best state for the death penalty (thank you W. BUSH!!). I tust in the district attorney that he will understand that it is a FEDERAL CRIME to kill a Police man... But let us really think about what should happen when a defender of this great nation is murdered!!
