In light of the seeming lack of progress experienced by Montebello PD investigating the shooting death of 12-year-old Albert Garcia and his father Juan at a graduation party two weeks ago, I’ve been thinking cities that contract with the Sheriff’s Department for their investigations probably have better results.
I have no proof of this. It’s just a thought. And clearly the Sheriff’s Department has its share of stalled investigations. The Sammantha Salas case from earlier this year in Monrovia comes to mind.
Montebello isn’t the only area city that doesn’t immediately turn to the vast resources of the Bulldogs. Others include Covina, Pomona, Pasadena and West Covina.
What do you think?
