    He wasn’t armed! he didn’t deserve to get beaten and killed by these monstrous officers!

    He was a young Hispanic male sitting in his car with his girlfriend.

    Pomona or sheriffs didn’t even contact the family (mom and dad), they found out by recognizing the moms car in the news report. The reason obviously is because Pomona is going to cover this up and spin this magically. That is why they (Pomona and Sheriffs) are not releasing any information and being tight lipped about it.

    The officers suspected he had a gun and shot him. Suspicion alone does not merit the officers actions. I understand police safety is number one, but that is why police have protocols and procedures to make sure a person/suspect is unarmed. Think about it…a police office can kill you and it all gets covered up because of politics. We are not in Mexico!!! This coverup should not be allowed to happen here. The media should be all over this.
