Skip to comments.Senate fires peace officer for drug use before 2012 shootout
Posted on 05/06/2014 3:21:30 AM PDT by csvset
The Sacramento Bee asked legislative officials about court records showing the officer had cocaine in his system when he was involved in a December 2012 gunfight that left three people injured and one man dead.
Lopezs mother, Dina Hidalgo, is a high-ranking official in charge of Senate human resources. His wife, Jennifer Delao, is a secretary in Steinbergs policy unit.
The missing $100 bill, he said, was what they were using in the endeavor. When it was eventually discovered, Brace said, the bill was rolled up like a straw.

Dina Hidalgo is the Director of Personnel for the California State Senate. Anonymous letters and complaints talk about preferential treatment for the cocaine snorting cop due to his momma's pull. Sounds like a 3rd world country.
Let me guess...no drug testing mandated for officer?
Challenging Lopezs credibility will be key to Trevizos defense, Brace said. He pointed out in the preliminary hearing that Lopez didnt tell detectives in his first interview that he had used drugs the night of the shooting. Detective Bullard testified that he brought Lopez back for more questioning two months later, after toxicology reports showed he had tested positive for cocaine.
What gets me is that there's a question as to who shot who? Wouldn't forensics be able to sort this out?
Lopez told the detective he feared the intruders were going to harm the woman, so he went to his bedroom and got his gun. Then he walked outside, detectives testified, and the firefight ensued. Prosecutors say four people were firing guns: Lopez, Trevizo and two of Trevizos friends, brothers Francisco and Joseph Merjil. Lopez, Aguallo and Francisco Merjil were injured by gunshots, detectives said, and Joseph Merjil was killed.
Who shot whom will likely be a matter of debate when the case goes to trial next month. Trevizo and Francisco Merjil are being charged with felony robbery and kidnapping. A third friend, Thomas Ordonaz, who prosecutors describe as the getaway driver, is charged with felony robbery in the case.
Sounds like New York to me.
This is a State Senate cop?
I find it interesting that as the Fascist State grows, the larger and more varied their armed police forces are.
Surprise surprise surprise.......
Cops on drugs during shootouts......
The same as Nazi Germany where each department was issued guns and uniforms.
And branchs like the SS and Luftwaffe had their own ground forces.
Although the Nazis have nothing on this regime. Hitler would drool over the resources that Obama has but would see Obama as a soul mate.
