check this out peeps , my boy was the person that got killed , knowing him he would have never pulled out first, second he was on his way home from his brother bachelor party, dumb sheriffs and lame SOUTH PASADENA COPS aint budging with info cuz its their own, these mother***** are getting away with murder, no bulls***, and the report says they detained him not trying to revive or help keep him alive they waited 20 mins for the ambulance to arrive , let him bleed to death...f** these cops, there just as bad as yur friendly drug dealer nieghbor.
It's a brave new world where filthy gangsters talk crap online when one of their turd members gets killed by the police. Why exactly do you think he's a "victim"? Is it because he lost the gunfight? Why do you think it's ok for him to carry a gun at all? Why did he stop his car and think it was a good idea to blast his music at 1:00 AM in somebody else's neighborhood? Why didn't he just drive straight home? And don't repeat his "fiancee's" lie about him pulling over to call and say he was on the way home. Anybody who breaks the law every day by illegally carrying a gun doesn't care about making a cell phone call while driving.

Stand by for the autopsy report - I guarantee his blood alcohol is going to explain quite a bit about why this shooting happened. A little extra liquid courage in a sureno causes all kinds of problems.

And for the record, the right person survived this gunfight - the good guy, not the scumbag gangster.

To all you that obviously don't have nothing better to do than praise someone that took a life and talk crap. It shows how uneducated you are and what type of person your mothers raised. You should allow the family to mourn and let them have some peace, whether he was a good or bad person he was still a human being and no one deserves to die the way he did, cops these days let those badges get to them and use it to hurt others and they have forgotten they swore to serve and protect. One day it can be you going through something similar so don't Judge A Book by the cover. Cops are good at hiding all the evidence against them that is the only reason why they get away with the crimes.. But there is a God and he will make sure justice is serve for all.

Confirmation in the news article listed below that Quintero was the first to fire, and he fired multiple rounds at the officer.

So much for his gang buddies' belief that he either didn't have a gun (which his girlfriend said he always had) or that he isn't the kind of guy to pull his gun out.

Although it's a sad thing for Quintero's gangster buddies and family, society is safer without him and his alcohol-fueled bad behavior.

I understand what you are saying but this is not confirmation that the bad guy fired first, it is the media saying this and we don't know what the officer did exactly. How do you know the officer did not fire first and then saw this guys gun and then fired off the rounds to claim he was shot at so many times. How about those scratches all over him? This officer has a tainted black past with the Office of Public Safety, illegal activity and more crimes.

Facts:
1) The thug was strapped* his homies admit it if you read the posts. Ummm it's illegal to drive with a gun in your car. Let's not skip this most important Fact ***
I'm no expert but a thug with a GUN in his vehicle, is up to no good... So thug had full intentions of using this weapon one day ( that's why he carried illegally) he shows us that he has no regard for taking someone's life, he met his match when he decided to fire upon the off duty officer first, and he paid the ultimate price. No one deserves to die ever like this I agree.... But the thug carried a weapon illegally *** what did he expect? To just kill and not be killed?
2) Suspect was a thug* watch the news videos and see who shows up to flower memorials.... Thugs and more thugs. That's the problem here, if you're a thug,cholo, gangster, etc... You choose your path, and that gangster path ends up in death at one point. I'm sorry but if you are affiliated with thugs and thug activities like carrying a gun because you have had past run ins with gangs ( according to his homie) then you reaped what you sowed Mr. Thug

Black badge and onion stank sounds like you are both jealous cops. First of all we don't even know who this officer is. Second how would you even know about his so called "tainted past"? Seems to me you both have a problem and some sort of grudge. And if this cop hasn't been arrested for this or any other crimes then he can't be a bad cop. Don't you think that others in the community know exactly who YOU are and your slanderous remarks are going to get back to those in charge.

Funny how "homies" supporters have all scattered since the news of him firing his gun has come out. And the media could care less since there isn't any wrong doing on the part of this officer.

That cop was a known coward got his azz kicked sounds like to me. Then he couldn't hang with none of his back up n shot the victim. Moral of the story don't play your music loud in south pasadena or the off duty cal state LA campus cop will kill you. Thats a big coward can't do his job like the good cops who would have handles this far different n better.
