Maybe they have found the hideout of the EnviroMENTAL Liberation Front.”

There are a number of Muslim training camps believed to be in the hills in that area.

I will try to keep you posted on this. So far, the information is about a search warrant regarding arson.

California has the strictest gun-control laws in the nation. This is not supposed to happen. This is what those laws are trying to prevent! /sarc

Prayers going up for the police.

The community of Minkler is very small, and is unincorporated. It is a few miles from the foothills though.

I know. I would believe that the Deputies and the Reedley Police Officer who were shot would not fall in the category of bad guys.

Thank you. I also include the Reedley Officer in my prayers. Reedley is probably over 10 miles from Minkler. The Fresno Police Department would be about 20 miles from Minkler.

Exactly. There are so many things here for people to attack. No-knock warrants, cops in general, enviro-weenies, anti-gun laws...

Some heads are gonna implode over this one. Prayers for the cops.

I doubt that this guy will be able to make bond. The bail is going to be very very high. He will have to wait until he gets to prison if he wants to post to liberal sites.

One of the photos at the link clovis skeptic provided shows what appears to be a Deputy in a vehicle, with his head bandaged.

I haven’t had the radio on this afternoon, Enterprise.

Praying for these officers.

Now I need to go to the end of the thread to see if there are any updates.

Oh, that really hurts, I’m so sorry. God be with his family/friends and give them peace and comfort. I also pray, God, protect everyone from the perps and I pray God you lead the men/women that are hunting the murders down, right to them. In Jesus name, Amen!!!

The Sheriff has turned investigaiton over to Fresno PD, they are not giving any specifics, other than, a woman came out of the residence at about 4pm, and the robot verified a deceased man in residence, they went in about 5pm.

They aren’t giving the suspects name, nor the deceased Fresno deputy, or the other Fresno deputy.

So when over 100 hundred law enforcement officials are at one spot, does that leave any of the surrounding area vulnerable to robberies or disputes getting out of hand?

No not really. Many officers are called back to duty on a moments notice for such things.
generally there is a minimum staffing to continue operating and handling the other calls.

I suppose it depends upon the town. The small (gang infested) town near where my mother lives had a big parade in honor of their new police station with all the cops.

There were 4 armed robberies during the parade since they knew all the cops were busy.
