Stockton PD: Bank robbers, hostage dead after chase, gun battle
KCRA ^ | Jul 16, 2014 | Michelle Schultz

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.

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. No description or names given of the perpetrators? I'm thinking Mexican drug cartels and it doesn't fit the story of "children" currently flooding the southern border.

Yep. They probably got the call from Chicago the story is a no-go.

Sounds like a big story to me. And the kind the tv media love to cover.
Weird

CBS Morning Show was on it -— I glanced at it a couple times but I don’t 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.

ABC San Francisco came out with a little more info: http://abc7news.com/news/2-suspects-1-hostage-dead-in-stockton-bank-robbery-shootout/193162/ Police say the bank has a history of being robbed and these suspects may be connected to previous robberies.
Don't think I will be doing any banking in Stockton, CA

<><><><

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.

Fear not. KCRA 3 Sacramento is on the case.

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.

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?

Can't tell fur sure, but it seems to appear that's the case:

"one of the hostages was thrown from the SUV and taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound...A second hostage was later thrown from the vehicle, and officers tending to her found she had suffered a grazing bullet wound...When the shootout had ended, the third hostage was found dead in the SUV and one of the robbers was also dead. The police chief said the hostage was a bank customer, and that she appears to have been used by the suspects as a shield during the shootout. The other two hostages are Bank of the West employees."

Surviving robber, Jaime Ramos, 19. Considering the stupidity of the robbers and the excessive violence, what are the chances that they were some of our "new neighbors" from the Turd World?

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.

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'.

Like in Florida two months ago they fired nearly 400 shots at two UNARMED men - one of whom was totally innocent.
This in a condo subdivision.

POLICE FIRE NEARLY 400 SHOTS AT TWO UNARMED MEN - ONE INNOCENT

“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.
