Anon,

I wasn't bashing him. Only going with the facts at hand it would be unfair to do that. I simply stated that i hope it was all false and that it is sad when officers who do sometimes get a bad rap without knowing all the facts. I too have met Officer Esqueda a few times. But i do wonder what really happened, i guess we'll (the general public) will never know...

Nice little support group you all had going here. Too bad for you he was convicted and is now prohibited from possessing a firearm for 10 years.
Cops don't shove guns in people's faces and scream "tell me what I want to know or I'll f'n kill you" EVER.
Alfonso Esqueda never said that. He used the gun to maintain control over the suspect. As one of the jurors, I heard testimony from Officer Begley and Mr. Macawhile. Officer Begley was in front of Macawhile - yelling at him. Officer Esqueda was standing alongside them, and stepped up, gun in hand. At that time, the gun was placed in Macawhile's face, and Mr. Esqueda stated he told Macawhile to not move - and that this was no big deal. Basically, Mr. Esqueda believed Macawhile was going to run or fight. Macawhile was observed, By Mr. Esqueda, to be clinching his fists and standing on the balls of his feet. From the testimony of Officer Begley, I gathered that he had no idea what Mr. Esqueda was doing since Officer Begley was up in the suspect's face. I still believe Mr. Esqueda was looking at the bigger picture the entire time - Officer Begley seemed to be inexperienced in the way he handled that situation. And I believe he reported this incident because he lost control that night, and believed the suspect would be calling the unit to complain about how he comported himself. FYI - the suspect testified that Mr. Esqueda treated him fairly that night.

Just because a pig carries a gun, doesn't give him the right to pull it out on anyone for no reason. That is how innocent people get killed. I know first hand that Daly City cops are crooked pieces of shit. So I am happy to see one of them actually get in trouble for breaking the laws that he is supposed to be enforcing.

Your hate need not to stop with the police, don't sell yourself short. You need to extend this hate across the board without judging anyone as individuals. Perhaps the next place you can extend your hate to is homosexuals and drug users. Perhaps you can drag them along in your "peice of shit" category of people. For pete sakes, don't stop with cops, you are on a roll, keep it up!

Maybe you should get the whole story on this before trying to end this officers career for doing "the right thing." How about asking these questions..What was the thug doing for the officers to even stop him? If the "other" officer felt Esqueda was doing something wrong why didn't he stop him in the middle of it instead of letting it get this far? What is in Esqueda's background? Did you see the article about Esqueda saving a family from a burning building? Why doesn't any of this come into play? Stop and think for a minute before "judging" an INNCOENT OFFICER!!!!

First of all they probably searched suspect because his own people gave him up , . this does not look good gossip like this in a police department. Please take control of what is going on. police should stick together the legit ones. Remember you guys are the roll models for the Daly city police explores young lives being directed by your department. Going to church to ask for a prayer request for the dalycity police that god fix the issue that is going on in our department.
