Good job, Elk Grove Police Officer. Nice shooting...
Can Eureka borrow those officers to take out the trash on the lawn of the Humboldt County courthouse
I live in Commiefornia. The Politicos just outlawed Open Carry. Getting a Concealed Carry Permit is near impossible unless you are a certain U.S. Senator or the buddy of a Local Sheriff.
You can't own an Assault Rifle, or any Rifle or Pistol that has more than a ten shot magazine. Gun Owners are looked upon as a threat to the Socialist Order.
Again I ask, how did this happen?
My nephew is a CHP in that area
Rancid thug is dead = GOOD RIDDANCE!
PRAYING for the officer.
Did "the officer" multiply on his way to the vehicle? Or was this written by a product of the teachers' union?
