The shooter is an admitted gang member and has been arrested for several felony offenses that were prosecuted by the Fresno County District Attorney’s Office for charges related to robbery, weapons, and drugs.
In March of 2022, he was sentenced by a judge to serve 5 years and 4 months in prison. However, because of laws passed in the last few years that give additional credits for time served in local jail, and other new laws which allow for arbitrary “accelerated time credits” upon entry to the prison system, his release date was set for August 23, 2022, a mere 5 months after his original sentence. He was eventually released in late September 2022 and placed on Post Release Community Supervision when he should have been serving more time in prison.
Today, Governor Gavin Newsom, and every legislator in the state of California who supports this over-reaching phenomenon they try to disguise as legitimate criminal justice reform, has the blood of this officer on their hands.
The Governor and certain members of the California legislature have created a warped system that allows active and violent criminals to receive arbitrary “time credits” in an effort to reduce the state prison population to reach their goals of closing more prison facilities. Dangerous criminals are being released from our prison system by these accelerated and exaggerated time credits and numerous opportunities for early releases. When they get out, they are empowered to continue and intensify their violent behaviors, as they have not had enough consequences or treatment. They are released without significant punishment, rehabilitation programming, or educational opportunities. This madness is creating more victims and, furthermore, it is not serving the people who are committing the crimes.

Alleged Intruder Reportedly Attempted To Stab Victim In Throat To Avoid Being Shot > https://concealednation.org/2023/02/alleged-intruder-attempted-to-stab-victim-in-throat-to-avoid-being-shot/
In 2022, and for many years before, there were ~1,300 knife attacks daily across the nation by criminals against victims each year. That’s changed now, not because of the linked incident but because its changed overall. From 1 October 2022 to 30 Jan 2023 there have been ~1,400 knife attacks daily across the nation by criminals against victims.
Someone is NOT getting Soros campaign dollars I see.
The DA is a Republican so the Soros bucks were off the table.
If they want to virtue signal so badly people die they could empty the prisons the same way Putin is and send the Crips and Bloods and whoever else off to Ukraine. We all believe in fighting this most just and righteous war after all, right?
I’m sure they’d love the help.
Except the ones they would send would be fighting for the Russians.
They could join Russia’s PMC Wagner Group and buy THE FARM in a few weeks. Wagner Group troops are complaining in online videos about the lack of supplies and poor leadership, but the Army mobics are making the same complaints.
On a good day the Russians lose about 500 troops a day. On many days it is 3-4000 losses. If Russia had a demographic problem before the war, err Special Military Operation, it is going to be much worse afterwards.
I see somebody is drinking the cool aid!!
Ukraine is a “MASTER” at “PROPAGANDA” videos!!!
Just ask Zelensky!!! BLUE SCREEN BLUE SCREEN BLUE SCREEN!!!!
Yep! And the Ukrainian army is all but destroyed at this point.
One of Vlad’s 10 kopek army? Don’t worry, your mobilization papers will arrive soon. If the police don’t drag you off the street when you leave your apartment.
Gavin is feeling the sting and is not happy about it:

We had all this figured out in the 90s. Three strikes laws and more prisons. Yeah, it’s expensive, but do you want these monsters back on the street? Either way, you’re gonna pay for it.
How about actually EXECUTING those who kill innocents deliberately? That’s called murder and the biblically mandated punishment is death. California did away with that.So to reduce the costs of warehousing murderers for decades, they simply flip the door open and let them out. It now being proven beyond any doubt that those people will not suffer any dire consequences, there is no pressure to straighten up and fly right. So they kill again Musical Chairs, or Pop Goes the Weasel.
And MORE innocents die. Meanwhile they make gun possession amongst the law abiding a worse offense than the murders they do not deal with. I’d get more time in the hoosegow for unpermitted concealed carry in that state than I would for murder one.
The Gabbling Niuisance is the one that needs to be behind bars. Arrest him for felony perjury, failing to uphold hos oath of office.
You get what you vote for.
not any more, especilly on the Golden $tate.
There they get the counts the special people pay for.
H.L. Mencken said it, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
But perhaps if we just VOTE HARDER, things will get better, eh?
Disarm the citizens but embolden creeps! Yeah sure it’s the same thing in my state, as if we don’t know what they are actually doing! The fact is that it’s cheaper to let the criminals criminalize than to lock them up. The very worst of the worst may get time but just the worst….let them out and let society as a whole absorb the cost.
But don’t you dare get caught shooting one breaking into your house, they’ll make an example of you in Commiefornia.
I don’t miss living on Orangevale or Salinas. What a galactic shithole that place is.
California is the perfect example of Progressive policies in operation.
Most politicians , on both sides of the isle, DONT care about the peon’s they oversee. Their in it for themselves & the people who give them $$$$$
TERM LIMITS is the only way to stop the corrupt.
Sadly, you are absolutely correct.
We are way, WAY, WAY past incompetence or misguided intentions. This stuff coming out of government is deliberate.
Sure, the Ruling Class has unleashed a lot of this garbage on society to increase their money and power. What people largely fail to realize, however, is that a fair number of members of the Ruling Class delight in causing chaos and suffering and have have unleashed some of this garbage in pursuit of that explicit objective.
We are truly facing dark times ahead.
m. fukhead…Are you trying to tell this forum the police and society have nothing to fear from people who share the same skin color as the kkk, third reich, etc? If so you and the lily white biden you claim to disdain are just as ignorant and pathetic.
As for for the rest of you whose silence paves the way for bigots to leave behind trails like cockroaches you need to grow a pair.
No need for anyone to grow a pair when we have you, a madcow infested KKKunt to speak for us all whether we want it or not.
This is just “collateral damage”. From the primary goal of lowering the population in American jails and prisons. Which has always been the goal of the Libertarians Liberals and the Left. Because they complain America has too many people locked up, who they compared to other countries.
Actually, the goal is just to reduce the population.
I would imagine that the powers that be over there in the land of fruits and nuts don’t give half a hoot about having police blood on their hands: to them it’s likely a logical next step for when defunding them doesn’t take. Or even when it does.
Newsome and the rest of the left wing loonies couldn’t care less about how many die to support their woke socialist agenda. All they care about is power, money, and control of the lives of the peons and serfs.
