An off-duty police officer has been charged with executing a man in a sports bar - after an argument over a game of darts.
Riverside County sheriff's deputy Dayle Long, 42, allegedly shot Samuel Vanettes, 36, three times, leaving him to die on the floor of the bar in Murrieta, California.
An altercation allegedly broke out after the police officer told one of the friends 'Im better at darts than you are', Chris Hull, 39, told Patch.com.
'My buddy says, "Aw, you suck at darts". (The man) says, "Thats why Im a cop, I can do whatever I want to do".'
Hull tsaid his friend asked; 'Really, you can do anything?'
The police officer then pulled out his gun, Hull claimed and after the group repeatedly asked him to put it away he 'pops three rounds into my friend Sam'.
The ten-year department veteran appeared at the Southwest Justice Center in French Valley in a red prison uniform, on Friday charged with murder.

'Im a cop, I can do whatever I want ' off-duty policeman shouts before 'executing guy in bar' over a game of darts
Rot in hell Dayle.
I thought Obama was the only one who could rightfully make a claim like that?
I remember a time when cops were helpful, mellow and had an ability to protect and serve. Now many I run into seem like they have an "above the law" attitude.
Many, many, many, cops have the same attitude.
I’m surprised ol’ Dayle wasn’t working in Seattle.
I was hoping there would be more to this, additional witness comments, such as someone threatened the cop with a knife, or weapon. The bar had lots of people in it, and was said the be happy hour. There was no comment or statements from anyone in this article or others, that would support/justify shooting the victim 3 times. The victim was unarmed.
This is *really* beyond belief.
Is anyone even moderately surprised by this story?
Thus the monitor...Pig.
Once thought to be extinct the long skulls return to eradicate earthlings
According to this article and others so far, there was not even a fist fight, shoving match, nothing, between the cop shooter and the victim, with the victim being unarmed. No fight, no pushing, no nothing, just some exchanged words, and 3 rounds into the victim.
Yeah, I am extremely surprised by this.
What we really need is an unarmed constabulary, like in the UK.
This kind of thing, while rare, also falls under the classification of ‘American Social Decline’.. Just as bad, if not worse, than hordes rioting in the Mall of America or Walmart.
Three quarters of a million dollars in debt as a law enforcement officer? They allow this now?
Too bad he didn't Glock himself in the head in the comfort of his own living room. He would have saved himself and everyone whose ever crossed paths with him a whole pile of trouble.
I bet when Pandora's Box is finally opened on this guy, there will be found a great many other miscarriages of justice that the Riverside County Sheriff's Office will be having to sweep under the rug. Every criminal this fiend has ever arrested can claim that Long was a dirty lowdown evidence-planting deputy.
Good going RCSO Internal Affairs background check and psychological evaluation team for new hires. You helped Dayle Long kill a citizen and God knows what else he's done in his career.
Disgusting. Find out who his friends on the force were and search up their colons with a microscope. Evil cops seek each other out and form little covens.
Very misleading article.
It makes no attempt to recount what actually happened. It rather presents one “side’s” version as the truth. Towards the end it quotes a relative of one of the witnesses, hearsay in its ultimate form.
The situation may very well have been exactly as described here, but this article doesn’t come close to proving it. There is an equal chance there’s much more to the story.
Even if completely true, it demonstrates that unstable men given guns and power tend to prove the old adage about power corrupting.
Is anyone really surprised?
...and Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress who constantly take advantage of insider trading and become multi-millionaires in a matter of years on a $300k salary. Stealing millions from the public is about as “do anything I want” as it gets.
‘Im a cop, I can do whatever I want’
and now... you can do time.
Good analysis... another comparison is the whole Air Jordan insanity.
Speaking of the UK, why are there so many such US stories in UK papers?
Back then you were a "citizen."
Today you are a "civilian."
I am not. An increasing bulk of cops have become brownshirts with no regard for non-cops. They have nearly perfected the we/them mindset and will become increasingly dangerous as they acquire recent military cast off equipment as well as a military view of “ us” as the enemy.
Yet we have people worried about citizen carry and think nothing about cop carry.
Back in the day, I remember numerous stories of NYPD cops shooting each other and by-standers in bars. I also recall, circa 1980, my first visit to Dallas, at the airport bar (and all drinking establishments in Texas at the time) there were signs reminding patrons that firearms are not allowed in drinking establishments in Texas. (”Check your shootin’ irons at the door, gentleman.”) Good policy.
BTW, why do we need to read about these stories in the British press?
Because the US MSM is busy running Obama's reelection campaign and can't be bothered reporting news stories about the plebs.
Beat me to it...his pic made me think ‘Terminator 2’ immediately...
What $300K salary? Rank and file representatives and senators get $174,000 per year, the Speaker, 223,500, the Senate Majority and Minority leaders, $193,400, each.
pretend cops are just as bad
Probably because a lot of the UK newspaper sites get much of their traffic due to hits from Drudge Report links, so American stories must be very profitable for them.
Of course there's also the "America is turning into a freak show" vibe going on...
I am wondering how this will be excused or dismissed however.
Good thing he wasn’t a NC conceal carry license holder.
“You must rezspect mah authoritay!”
And there is a segment of our population that believes it is the normal citizen who needs to jump through many more hoops to ask permission, jump through a much more rediculous training requirements (in some states), and pass mental evaluations before carrying a firearm for “lawful, self-defensive” purposes...
One of the places most of us can’t go is to a bar and drink while carrying...
Obviously this knucklehead didn’t get that memo...
That color jumpsuit looks pretty good on him...
It’s a shame there wasn’t a dog in the bar or the deceased might still be with us.
Yeah, that’s what we need. Unarmed cops against against ethnic gang members, drug cartel thugs and organized crime mobs. What a wonderfully great beautiful attractive idea. The next time teenage girls attack a senior women, we can call the unarmed cops. Boy, what a brain trust-quality idea.
I think it is more likely that our media filters out stories based on political considerations, and the UK doesn’t care (at least in terms of US stories).
UK tabloids are all about sensationalism and since the US is six times more populous than the UK and is English-speaking, there are six times as many sensational stories to choose from as there are in the UK. If a UK tabloid needs copy, the US is a rich resource.

They wouldn’t have arrested him if he didn’t do it.
LOL...And they still become millionaires and people think nothing of it. It really ticks me off because people buy the stocks these pukes like Pelosi dump, not knowing they’ve just been scammed. The stock rises for whatever reason that Pelosi knows about beforehand, before it becomes public knowledge, such as a bill being passed, and when these people buy then it drops when Pelosi dumps and they lose money. Someone on Freep told me Congress actually passed a bill making insider trading LEGAL for these pukes! WTF?? There was a report that Pelosis net worth rose 62% last year during a recession, why don’t these OWS protestors protest THAT?
But, I remember a time when we didn't need to lock our doors at night, & kids could be kids w/o fear of pedophiles. Murderers were executed quickly, thieves went to jail for a long time, & perverts dare not return to their neighborhoods if they were EVER released from jail, for fear of deadly retribution.
Today, vicious criminals rule the streets. When arrested, they are quickly bailed back on to the streets. When convicted, they get light sentences in comfortable prisons. Many get off Scot free by liberal laws & judges. Cop killers are now heroes in the eyes of many - Mumia Jamal.
Is it any wonder that police have become as cold blooded as the criminals? What kind of personality does one need to patrol the mean streets in a uniform that seems to say, “Don't fear me, shoot me”? How many of us could wear a badge & remain sane in the face of our current Bizarro legal system?
Yes, I would hang Dayle Long 15 minutes after conviction, along with every violent criminal in every jail in America.
You nailed it with that photo - I was thinking the same thing!
I nominate you for the first unarmed officer to enter “The Hood”. What’s next, cap guns for the seal teams?
There have always been good cops and bad cops....just like any other segment of our population.
Given that, however, this behavior is being promoted among law enforcement. Special rules just for police do not help. They are merely citizens with badges and do not deserve special treatment.
Here is a fun story about a UDOT Officer and Food Storage.
