There go again blaming the cops. Were you there, if you weren't there, don't say nothing. All off duty and retired cops can carry guns. I for one, as a retired cop carry a cancel gun, and sometimes I'm out at 1:00 in the morning. I would only use my gun to protect myself and my family. If I saw someone getting kill, I would be a good witness and call the cops. I would not get inv., because thats what the public would me to do.

I've read some of these nlogs and now reading yours admitting your a police officer and retired say would watch someobe get killed be a good witness and call 911. You sir disgust me. You shame yourself and all law enforcement with your pathetic and cowardly statement. You are a TRUE COWARD like all these other blogs say. You cry about protecting your family cause you can carry your gun. I bet you would let your family die if you couldn't carry ccw. You're the type that with out your gun you sh^t your diapers. I'm going to report you and your blog to the police because you should not be a retired or active poluce officer. Saying you will watch someone get killed and do nothing. Your sick. I bet you were full of discipline ans lies when you were a police officer. Your ccw can be revoked easily. You sound as cowardly and corrupt as those safety county police The Sheriff dept hired. Now that low.

Several sources have said that Deputies and CAs that admitted to theft, sexual misconduct or falsified reports are going to be investigated and terminated.

Those criminal cops in The LA Times are butt Uglies
They look like they are on drugs. The other articles say many, the majority of those Ops cops smoked weed and other drugs. Picking up hookers, falsifying lying on police reports, psychos. How can yhe Sheriffs dept hire these screwballs. Basically they are thug gangsters with badges.

Isn't it funny how the guy from Portland has nothing to say since his buddies got exposed by the LA Times. Everything that was posted on Topix for years, yet he acted like it was all not true. The Times exposed that it all was true!

What was supposed to happen? It was completely justified. End of story.

Hmmmmmmm....guy walks on to your ungated front lawn and you go out and kill him...he did not shoot at you, you shot him...no investigation needed?

Guest if you put a gun in his hand after you shot him dead, then shoot the gun so that there is gsr residue on his hands, you might say there is no need for an investigation.

Oh please....

It was gated, you cold see it on the news, but he shot at the officer from the street so what you said is irrelevant.
He shot at the officer FIRST, there is plenty of evidence of it
There is NO evidence of anything else in your little fantasy version.

I bet this officer lied. Just cause the victim got shot and carried a gun. The officer guard panicked and murdered him then got lucky found the victims gun in his car and they fired seversl rounds from that gun to make it seem like the victim shot at the officer. The officer is dirty. I bet he has a bad record.

I don't know what you were watching, but the news casts I saw showed no gate around the front yard. Also the VICTIM never fired a shot. The only person with a fantasy version is you. Bet you chew tobacco!
