IDK if I should post this here or in current events but here goes:

A little after noon today the Sheriff Helicopter was flying over my house (I live in Carmichael) warning people to lock their doors and shelter in place. I turned on the news and from what I gather CHP & the Sheriff's Dept auto theft task force were going to search a room at the Ramada Inn on Fulton @ Auburn. The suspect in the room shot through the door with a high powered rifle striking two CHP Officers and then he went to the balcony and shot a Sheriff's Deputy who was providing backup to CHP. The male suspect fled on Fulton then proceeded down El Camino. El Camino High was put on lockdown and the suspect hit a pole at Millrace (adjacent to the High School) and was shot by LE, he was transported to the hospital. So far 7 suspects have been arrested. The S.O is doing a room to room search of the Ramada to make sure there are no other suspects

I just heard Sheriff Jones on TV. Sac Sheriff Deputy Robert French has died. The two CHP officers are alive but no word on their condition.

I'm sorry to hear this news 2sleepy. I had three uncles who were cops, so I take news like this to heart. My thoughts will be with Sheriff Deputy French's family tonight, as well as the other officers.

Scary day in Sac., my GF goes to school that's basically right behind the Ramada. She was on break with her classmates, sitting outside when the shooting started. Needless to say, her school went into lockdown mode.
SWAT came to the school make sure no BG's were hiding in the area and they also used to the roof of the building to get a visual of the backside of the Ramada.

When the coast was "clear", SWAT escorted all the students to their cars which was around 2:45 and everybody went home safe. I listened to the events unfold on broadcastify most of the day and would text her status reports.
Damn scumbag car thieves


RIP Deputy French

This played out just down the street from me and my condolences are with Dep. French's family.

The guy that was arrested (still in the hospital) was arrested in December 2015 for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, concealed weapon, buying and selling stolen property, possession of narcotics, possession of a controlled substance and possession of explosives.

His first court hearing was a few days later. His case was continued every month until July when he didn't appear for a hearing. Then in September he was told the court was changing it to "released on his own recognizance." Still continued several more times until mid-July 2017 when he again didn't show up for a hearing. A warrant was issued for the no-show.

There was also mention of outstanding warrants in other counties, for I don't know what. How do you commit that many crimes and not go to jail?

There's comments elsewhere that "he was let out early due to Prop. 57 (or whichever)" because people think our justice system actually worked and convicted him--or at least put him on trial.

I'm saddened that he shot the officers--but I'm also saddened that our justice system failed those officers.

It was AB 109 that failed the officer. This is getting so bad in California. My husband and I live in Southern California and we are dealing with crime here. My heart ALWAYS goes out to our officers. I don't know what Jerry Brown was thinking but it is not working and back firing. Cops are paying the price.

What did AB109 have to do with this? If you want to blame someone, blame the POS who did this, look at his criminal history:
Gunman who killed California deputy has violent criminal history - NY Daily News

He was out this time, not because of "AB109" but because his stepmother put her house up as collateral for a $100,000 bail bond out of a four count federal indictment in San Francisco. He also had a $50,000 warrant out of Santa Rosa and a probation warrant out of Alameda County, I think that warrant was issued after his stepmother bailed him out or he would not have been released

AB109 allowed non-violent convicted felons to serve their time in County Jail rather than State Prison, and changed the agency responsible for post release supervision from CDCR to the County the prisoner was convicted in. It did not reduce the length of sentences or involve early releases.

He apparently had three outstanding cases, a federal indictment out of San Francisco with $100,000 bail, his step mother put up her house as collateral for the bail bond, he also had a probation warrant out of Alameda, and a $50,000 warrant out of Santa Rosa for a case in late 2015, I can't see any way that prop 47 impacted this case. That reduced some felonies to misdemeanors but did not apply to any of his charges in these cases.

This was real close to my house too, I was on my way back from picking my Grandson up from kindergarten when I saw cop cars all over the place. By the time I got in the house the helicopter was telling people to lock their doors and shelter in place.
