Two Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies Shot In Ambush Attack In Compton, CA

Post by harriss »

We all knew this stuff like this would happen. I mean it's been happening since the 1960's but then there have been brief pauses over the years. Why not just vote if you want to make a statement. Get a computer and become a keyboard warrior.

If trump gets his wish he will tear this country apart and imprison a hundred million minorities and people of color in camps from sea to shining sea so he can make the US a stinking example of a lily white fascist nation.
Two Los Angeles police officers are in a critical condition after being shot in what police are calling an ambush.

Video of the incident shows a figure approach the officers' vehicle, before opening fire and running away.

Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva called the act "cowardly". The suspect remains at large.

Protesters shouted anti-police slogans and blocked the entrance to the emergency room where the two officers are being treated, police and witnesses said.

The officers involved have not been named, but have been described as a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man.

"One male deputy and one female deputy were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle. Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. They are both currently undergoing surgery. The suspect is still at large," LA County Sheriffs tweeted.

It was hard to tell from the video but I thought the shooter looked White.

Tragic and I hope the deputies recover. Not surprising for a number of reasons: Compton is a high crime area and has been for a long time; an LASD deputy shot Andres Guardado five times in the back while he was on the ground on June 18th and still no word from LASD or the LA DA about the officer; protest marches in the area over the shooting; another police shooting yesterday.... It's a black and Latin area, we don't know the race of the deputies or perp in this shooting.
The department later said both were out of surgery. Law enforcement sources told The Times at least one of the deputies was shot in the face and the other in the head.
Speaking at a news conference at the hospital late Saturday, Sheriff Alex Villanueva described one of the injured deputies as a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and the other as a 24-year-old man. He said both deputies were sworn into office just 14 months ago.
He noted that sheriff’s detectives on Thursday shot and killed a man in Compton who they said opened fire on them as they served a search warrant.
A reporter for LAist was arrested by Sheriff’s deputies at St. Francis Medical Center, where the wounded deputies were being treated and some protesters gathered. Video showed the reporter, Josie Huang, pinned by several deputies. LAist said it had “called for her immediate release and an apology from department.” Huang was released Sunday morning.

Some of the rioters have crossed the line between protest and mob. Picketing and forcibly entering a hospital, calling for the deaths of deputies shot making a traffic stop. Trying to force past hospital personnel to attack injured cops. This is not even vigilante action. It is stupid self destructive behavior and if the rioters keep pushing, I can see gunfire and lots of blood in the street.
The current National Guard are not like the kids at Kent State. Most are combat experienced. If they receive orders from the press to put down the rioters, they will.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrested KPCC/LAist Correspondent Josie Huang Saturday night while she was covering the ambush shooting of two deputies in Compton. The incident occurred outside St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where the two deputies were being treated for gunshot wounds. Huang had just finished covering a 10 p.m. news conference by Sheriff Alex Villanueva.

Huang, an award-winning journalist, allegedly obstructed justice. The department initially refused to provide details of what happened, but later, Deputy Juanita Navarro of the Sheriff's Information Bureau confirmed that deputies took Huang into custody on suspicion of obstruction of justice by "interfering with a lawful arrest." Huang says she was trying to document the arrest of a protester.

Navarro also said Huang "didn't have proper credentials," but she was clearly wearing press credentials around her neck. [it's on video] Video shows at least five deputies pinning Huang to the pavement, handcuffing her, and placing her in a patrol car.

Huang was taken to the women’s jail at the Century Regional Detention Center. She was released at about 4 a.m. without bail, but was cited with an obstruction charge. A KPCC newsroom executive said Huang had visible bruises and scrapes, a sore shoulder and a blackened eye. LAist and KPCC called for an apology from the department. Undersheriff Tim Murakami said he would look into the incident.

One protester was arrested on the same obstruction charge as Huang. KPCC issued this official statement: "We offer condolences to the two sheriff deputies who were shot Saturday evening. "These are challenging and stressful times for everyone, but Josie Huang was arrested while doing her job. The charges should be dropped.

"Her arrest is the latest in a series of troubling interactions between our reporters and some local law enforcement officers. Journalists provide an essential service, providing fair, accurate and timely journalism and without them, our democracy is at risk."
L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas expressed concern about Huang's arrest: And the County Inspector General has conformed that he will investigate Huang's arrest:

Huang’s arrest sparked outrage among fellow journalists, who called her arrest a violation of the First Amendment.

Jim McDonnell was trying to clean up LASD, but Villanueva has been a disaster. Hope he's defeated in 2021 and the department gets cleaned up, there are good men and women there. KPCC is my favorite NPR station in So Cal even though KCRW is larger. The only way I get KPCC now is on the internet, it was owned by Minnesota Public Radio don't know if it still is.

Re: Two Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies Shot In Ambush Attack In Compton, CA

Both deputies were shot in the head near the Compton Metro station but went through surgery and are now listed in stable condition. The attack sparked widespread outrage, from the presidential campaign to the streets of Compton, where residents fear it would heighten already deep tensions between police and the community, after several high-profile deputy shootings and uses of force.
Authorities have offered no motive for the attack. But new surveillance video and dispatch calls provide a more detailed account of what happened.The video reviewed by the Los Angeles Times shows a figure in dark clothes casually walk up a pathway near the Compton Blue Line station, approaching the deputies’ parked patrol car from behind.

The person draws closer and turns to face the passenger’s-side door, his steps quickening. Inches from the window, he raises a gun, opens fire and runs back the way he came.

Moments later, the passenger door opens and a deputy stumbles out, hand on head. The driver’s-side door opens soon after. On the radio, a shaky voice mutters: “998 Compton Pax.”

Recognizing the code for a deputy-involved shooting, a dispatcher asks: “Just happened?”

“Compton Pax, deputies down,” the voice says, almost unintelligibly. “Compton Pax 998.”
In the security footage obtained by The Times — an extended version of the clip released by the Sheriff’s Department — the shooter turns a corner out of the frame, past a second figure lingering on the sidewalk. It’s unclear if the second person was involved in the attack. A Sheriff’s Department spokesman declined to comment, citing the “ongoing active investigation.”

Capt. Kent Wegener said the security footage released by the department was recorded with a fisheye lens, so the height and weight of the assailant were distorted.
Villanueva said in a brief interview that detectives had been “working furiously overnight” to identify the shooter. Detectives are scouring the area for more surveillance video that may offer a better view of the shooter, he said.

He said the shooting evoked the 2014 attack in Brooklyn where a man fatally shot two New York police officers. “There is no rhyme or reason to it; it is an act of a coward,” Villanueva said. “Obviously tensions were running high in the neighborhood with the deputy-involved shooting. But there is no nexus to it at this time. We are chasing all leads.”
Omar Williams, who lives near the Metro station on Willowbrook Avenue, said he was saddened if not surprised to learn someone had shot a police officer, an act he called “the work of an evil person.” Williams, 40, had taken part in protests against racism and police brutality earlier in the summer, but he’d recently sensed in the crowds a heightened anger. “You could hear the chatter in the crowd,” he said. “You could feel the tension. You could tell something was going to happen.”

He believes the police have at times abused their authority and subjected Black people in Compton and elsewhere to “years of hostility.” Those abuses shouldn’t be forgotten, he said.

“But I’ve got to remember this,” he said, standing across the street from where the two deputies were shot, “as much as I remember the killing of an unarmed Black person by the police.”

____________________________________________

A shooting earlier in the month by LASD deputies has contributed to the community tension.
Dijon Kizzee loved riding bicycles — anything with wheels, really, his uncle Anthony Johnson recalled. As a youth, he would build go-karts and used to drive his mother crazy with his passion for mini motorcycles.

That’s why it wasn’t surprising, Johnson said, that 29-year-old Kizzee was on a bike Monday afternoon when he was flagged for an alleged vehicle code violation in a South Los Angeles neighborhood. He tried to flee and subsequently was fatally shot by L.A. County sheriff’s deputies.
The Sheriff’s Department hasn’t indicated what vehicle codes Kizzee allegedly violated. Officials have said deputies pursued Kizzee as he dropped his bicycle and ran. They said deputies opened fire after he “made a motion toward” a gun that fell to the ground when he dropped a jacket he had been carrying.
Neighbors who witnessed the killing said deputies kept firing at Kizzee after he had fallen to the ground. Attorneys representing the family said Wednesday that he was shot at 15 times.

She isn't just more believable, she got the whole thing on video:

She's not interfering with them, the news footage shows the credentials they say she didn't have, and you can clearly hear her identify herself as a reporter, which they say she didn't do. That's three for three on lying about why she was arrested.

I sympathize with the two wounded deputies and I condemn the stupid jackass that shot them. It would just be nice to see a similar level of outrage and transparency the next time a deputy does the shooting.

:clap: That's great, it's evidence. I really doubt the LA DA would pursue obstruction of justice, but Huang could use it in a civil suit for damages. Villanueva has gotten even more arrogant.

On Newsom's desk is AB 1185 which passed the Legislature, it would give counties through an oversight board the power to rein in sheriffs like Villanueva and a very few other bad actors in the state. Most of the county sheriffs aren't arrogant like this bozo and they work very well with county boards.

In response to the shootings, the sheriff has pursed his usual aggressive rhetoric.
But the agency’s response to the attack has raised alarms among some activists, lawmakers and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department watchdogs, who question whether the aggressive rhetoric is inflaming rather than easing tensions at a moment when community groups are protesting several controversial shootings by deputies amid a national discussion over policing and race.

Within 24 hours, a longtime Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman posted tweets about the attack that employed racist stereotypes in reference to a reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooter. In one post accompanied by a GIF of a Black man shuffling bills, she wrote: “And here’s the neighborhood homies and enemies ‘bout to come up’ on that $100,000 #REWARD because $100,000 dollas is $100,000 dollas.”
The spokeswoman, Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez, later deleted the posts. When asked to respond, she said: “Everyone has an opinion, and that’s it.”
The sheriff also singled out Lakers star LeBron James — who has been vocal about systemic racism in America — and challenged him to match what was a $175,000 reward offered to help find the gunman who shot the deputies. James hasn’t responded to Villanueva’s request. But Vanessa Bryant — who has filed a claim against the agency over deputies sharing photos from the site of the helicopter crash in January that killed her husband, Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, their daughter Gianna and seven others — quickly fired back.

She reposted another social media user’s remarks about Villanueva: “How can he talk about trusting the system?”
Priscilla Ocen, a member of the Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission, said she was particularly alarmed by the racist tweets, which she described as “insulting to the residents of Compton and the surrounding areas” at a time when the department needed to build trust and relationships in those communities.

“Although the statements are racist and reprehensible, they are not surprising,” she added, saying Villanueva “set the example for this kind of rhetoric” when he recently used a derogatory term in reference to County Supervisor Hilda Solis.
“My advice to all the ex-girlfriends, side pieces, friends, wifey, ol’ lady, dime, queen, baby momma who know the #ComptonAmbush shooter of 2 LA Sheriff’s about getting that $100,000 #REWARD...,” Navarro-Suarez wrote next to an image of a Black woman saying, “Make that money girl.”

The tweets were quickly condemned as unprofessional, perpetuating offensive stereotypes of Black communities and exacerbating already deep tensions with law enforcement. Within about two hours, they were deleted.

She would not say why she deleted the tweets, referring a reporter to others in the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

Somebody should ask Villanueva how many burritos $100k would buy and does he think such a question could be problematic.

The LA Sheriff's Dept called a news conference on Wednesday to again explain the shooting by deputies of Dijon Kizzee a black man who was on a bike. They showed a video of the incident but the crucial moments are obstructed. This is the third version that LASD has presented.
Much of the altercation is caught on video that the Sheriff’s Department provided Thursday. But parts of the struggle with deputies right before the shooting, including the moment that Wegener said Kizzee picked up the gun, are partially obstructed by a wall and difficult to make out. The new narrative conflicts in some ways with prior versions of events.
n attorney for Kizzee’s family, Carl Douglas, said they were disturbed by the “unspoken messages and half-truths” by sheriff’s officials Thursday. He said witnesses stated Kizzee was “standing up, with nothing in his hands when the younger deputy fired his first three shots at him.”

“It was a media-driven sideshow, designed to deflect attention from the 19 shots two sheriff deputies fired at an unarmed man,” Douglas said of Thursday’s news conference. “Nineteen shots reflect poor training, and a failure to properly assess the need for deadly force. Nineteen shots reflect contagious fire, and a fundamental lack of humanity for another living soul. Nineteen shots reflect poorly trained killers who overreacted in assessing the need to use deadly force.”
https://www.latimes.com/california/stor ... e-shooting


Yesterday two members of the county board of supervisors called for the sheriff to resign. Joining them was Robert Bonner a member of the Sheriff's Oversight Commission.
Bonner is a former federal prosecutor, a former U.S. District Court judge and, under George H.W. Bush, led the Drug Enforcement Administration and was the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Villanueva is the only sheriff in the county’s recent history, Bonner said, “who has no effective relationship with the Board of Supervisors,” adding that Villanueva “has gone out of his way to alienate and even insult supervisors.”

He criticized Villanueva’s response to a recent ambush shooting of two deputies, saying it’s “not what one would expect from a mature law enforcement leader” and calling Villanueva’s baiting of Lakers star LeBron James to contribute to the reward to find the attacker “ridiculous.”
Bonner also said Villanueva had done little to enforce a policy he issued to prohibit deputy cliques within the department and had resisted providing information to county inspector general Max Huntsman — even indicating the department would be investigating Huntsman himself.

Commissioners Priscilla Ocen and Casimiro Tolentino said they supported Bonner’s statements, and Ocen asked that a newly established committee draft a resolution of no confidence in the sheriff. “I am very surprised to hear what is a very eloquent statement, and I agree with it,” Ocen said.
Since taking office in 2018, Villanueva has clashed repeatedly with civilian overseers and the Board of Supervisors, who have accused him of rehiring officials with tainted backgrounds and unraveling policing reforms instituted after a massive corruption scandal that brought criminal convictions against former Sheriff Lee Baca and other commanders.
https://www.latimes.com/california/stor ... -to-resign


The LA Times issued an editorial yesterday calling for the sheriff to resign.
Villanueva’s failure to cooperate is the best advertisement for even more muscular civilian oversight — for example, the power to impeach a sheriff, or to appoint (and remove) rather than elect him.

Failing that, Villanueva is fast becoming, we are sad to say, the best advertisement for the radical, unwise, yet (because of his performance) understandable desire expressed by many protesters: to defund and abolish law enforcement. Surely Villanueva won’t force Los Angeles County to consider that. Will he?
https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2 ... -oversight

Newsom has AB 1185 on his desk to sign, it would give county boards more control over county sheriffs. He hasn't signed it yet and has until September 30th, he's probably getting a lot of push back from law enforcement.
