Skip to comments.Stockton PD: Bank robbers, hostage dead after chase, gun battle
Posted on 07/17/2014 6:02:04 AM PDT by artichokegrower
Three armed men led police on a high-speed chase through at least three cities Wednesday, firing shots into cars and houses along the way, and throwing hostages from a speeding SUV after a bank robbery that led to the deaths of one hostage and two of the robbers, officers said.

Yep. They probably got the call from Chicago the story is a no-go.
Any Freepers with the inside scoop as to the description of the perps????
Sounds like a big story to me. And the kind the tv media love to cover.
> I dont remember a description of the perps.
Likely it was some of those illegal immigrant children from Central America.
They would NOT want you to know that.
This story sure has been dropped by the media here in northern California. Nothing new this morning and the television networks aren’t even reporting on let alone updating the story.
It was the second story on Good Morning America this morning and the top story on NBC’s morning show.
Your statement is simply incorrect.
Did they describe the perps ?
They were able to track down one of the relatives of the dead hostages and confirm that the police acted recklessly and had plenty of chances to stop the vehicle. Lawsuit to be filed later, no doubt.
Oh. No word on the identities of the perpetrators. Not considered newsworthy I guess.
Video of relative blaming police at link below...
From the number of holes in the vehicle, it appears that the cops shot at it without regard for the hostages’ safety.
So spraying bullets all over town for an hour and riddling a vehicle that holds innocent hostages ???? - standard procedure now?
I’m now for gun-control - of the cops. This is just one example of indiscriminate wild shooting by cops. One has to wonder at what kind of training now going on in law enforcement academies - and what level of intelligence being hired.
This is the truck shot up by the LAPD that was being driven by two ladies delivering newspapers during the Chris Dorner manhunt.
Why am I thinking that all three hostages will be shown to have been shot by the government?
Where did you find that info?
Maybe the criminals had a small ceramic dog with a movable head in the car.
On the local news here on the Central California coast all we are getting is the story of the high dollar call girl killing the Google exec on the yacht in the Santa Cruz harbor. Looks like the perps in the Stockton bank robbery could be some of Obama’s “dreamers”. I think Holder is telling everyone to suppress the story as it reflects badly on the President and his open border policy.
Followed a link in the original article. The perp’s name was linked.
The lack of tats is interesting.
If they were White Christians or Preppers it would be on the front page of every newspaper and the lead story on every channel; so either feral black Obamasons or Mexican 'border children'.
“There is certainly precedence in that area: “
Well, your “area” is quite large then, because the truck in your picture was in the Los Angeles area which is some 400 miles from Stockton!
Yup! Yet CCW holders that have to use their weapon in defense usually can put the guy down in one or two rounds. Yet the media continues to tell us that only police should have guns since they are trained.
Yeah area being the peoples republic.
Illegal? Heroin addict?
(I found out about it through the Guardian UK but haven’t found a follow-on article yet about the condition of two women hostages who were pushed/jumped from the vehicle somewhere along the chase route)
Family of slain woman, Misty Holt-Singh (r.i.p.) seeks all chase related police documents/recordings/etc
