After watching the video, all I can say is that it was MURDER, plain and simple. If you haven't watched the video, you really should. The mother
describes how the blade was put down, the daughter did nothing threatening towards others and the cop then shot her not once, but THREE times. He shot
her from a distance, she went down, and then the cop walks up to her and standing right by the girl, shot her two more times. Right there with her
mother watching and the girl's son in another room heard it and came out and saw his mother with bullet holes in her.
How the mother kept herself from going after this jerk is beyond me. I lived in Sonoma County, where Rohnert Park is, for many years. One time, late
at night, they pulled me over for a broken tail light (which wasn't broken). I'd had two glasses of wine, but it had been quite awhile since I had.
THe cop threatened to charge me with DUI, but decided to park my car in someone's driveway, right in front of a sign that said "No parking, private
driveway" and told me to walk home, which was 13 miles away. It was 2:00 a.m. on a Sat. nite and freezing. I could have been murdered, raped or
anything. Fortunately, some very nice young men stopped and gave me a ride home.
It was a horrifying experience and for no reason. I'm never rude to any cop because they scare me. The idiot even called for back-up. There were many
stupid experiences like this with a number of my friends. Sonoma police are known for their sexual harassment, discrimination, etc. The whole dept
needs to be investigated and gotten rid of, IMO.
I'm also told by a friend who still lives there, that the county has gotten rid of ALL mental health treatment centers. When someone is 5150'd (out
of control), they are sent to the jail, not a hospital or mental health center. I'm so glad I moved from there.
This is beyond appalling. This girl was murdered.
