  1. Officer is OK!! Crook is dead!!
    Win Win!!
    Thankful for our brave LE Officers that continue to risk everything to keep us safe!

    • f**k all of you inconsiderate judgemental mf.. he may have had a passed but he is human and we all make mistakes and has friends and family who dont need to hear your f**ked up ways of passing judgement on a person you probably dont even know…. SO SHUT THE F**K UP WITH THAT SHIT

      • We all make mistakes? Yep. Some of us speed from time-to-time. Others forget to do their homework. Still others forget to take out the garbage. VERY, VERY few people shoot at a police officer while running from arrest warrants. If that seems common to you–get some new friends. You call people MF for being judgmental. Let that sink in…

    • Yeah you’re the fucking shit bag ya piece of shit. You didn’t know that man so don’t sit there and judge him. So what that he had a record. According to who the trust worthy police department? Society has got shit fucked up. Another person murdered because they had a record. Murdered by the biggest gang in America.

    • Yeah you’re the fucking shit bag ya piece of shit. You didn’t know that man so don’t sit there and judge him. So what that he had a record. According to who the trust worthy police department? Society has got shit fucked up. Another person murdered because they had a record. Murdered by the biggest gang in America.

      • CK: Very, very few people think like you (as evidenced by this blog), so either we are all wrong or you need a little growth. I am being as kind as I can because I feel a little sorry for you. Perhaps going back and getting that G.E.D.?

        • You’re the one that needs growth. You’re just another retard that believes everything the media broadcasts and everything the police tell you to be truth. You’re just a retarded lemming marching along with all the rest of them and you’re exactly right very few people think like me. Why? Because I don’t believe everything I’m told and I’m not a fucking sheep? The only one that needs the g.e.d. Is you,you retarded Fuck. Get your facts straight and know what you’re talking about before you decide to spout a bunch of diarrhea out of your mouth.

    • You are an idiot you don’t know the man that died how the fuck you going to talk shit like that you’re the fucking shit bag

    • I thought the entire reason Discovery Bay was developed was for people to get away from the scumbags living in other areas! How did the scum wind up living in Discovery Bay? Who brought them there! Good thing that another loser is gone off the face of the earth and not breathing the air we breathe.

  2. This piece of garbage shot at a police officer. He could have complied but he chose not to. He got what he deserved.
    Just glad the officers involved are ok.

  3. Let’s put this in prospective folks, regardless who the dead guy is. If you have a family, don’t go running around with guns, and shoot at the Police. If you do dirt; you will eventually get covered by dirt. Most of you here defending a criminal on this news feed, probably already knew this day would one day come. Every Thug, one day has his day in court or meets his demise on the street, either by Police or some other violent encounter with another Thug. Yes Thugs have family, friends, and loved ones as well. However deep down you all know whats up. Either “Lay Down or Get Down”. However those choices can cost you your life, as It did today. I admit it, it’s fun too run wild; until you catch a few hot ones. Life is too short, so make your life choices count. It’s 2018 The Police and Prison/CDC are not going any where.

    Most every civilians care not too deal, with all the thuggery out there in our society today. So yes they will comment, and cheer a win so to speak. The law biding civilian, puts up with all the B.S. and crime daily, let them speak!

  4. What a rap sheet! Wow! Sweet Jesus! (1) drug possession, (2) multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon, (3) possession of dangerous weapons, (4) felon in possession of a firearm, (5) stolen vehicle possession, (6) obstruction, (7) possession of burglary tools. (8) parole violation. And this is all that is “included.” He’s 41 and STILL in a gang? If he lived, would he be still in a gang at age 70?

  5. Yeah, SURE he shot at the cop… That’s what you liars ALWAYS SAY. Bunch of BULLSHIT! Knowing damn well they shot at him in the back while he was running away, before they knew anything about him. So obvious who the scumbags are, even having the nerve to talk trash about him here on facebook. As if being a victim murdered by the PD isn’t enough, they gotta smut him up too just to cover their shit. Sickening. You mf’s are going straight to hell. RIP Paul…

  6. SURE THING, LIARS… WE REALLY TRUST THE POLICE OUT THERE. Gimme a break! Show us the body cam footage!! Gee, let me guess… it’s unavailable, right? F-ing LIARS!

    • We pretty much know who, unlike the employed and family-oriented folks in the East Bay, think the cops are the enemy. You sound like one of them; driving around wired on crank and scheming on your next score. If you spent on an education what you spent on tattoos you would be in the mainstream and gainfully employed. Yes, I can see you through my computer, and I could go on, but politeness prevents me from coloring the total picture. Go back to school.

  7. I’m willing to bet the body cam footage shows them shooting him in the back while he was running away, cuz they are too lazy to chase him. Struggle my ass… Go ahead and talk shit about me, I don’t give a rat’s ass! Call me all the names you want, at least I’m not a dirty f-ing cop!

    • Oh Sabrina!!
      He got what he deserved!
      41 year old gang member!!! Lol
      But you and your pals claim he was getting his shit together!!?? Thats hilarious!!
      Crawl back in your hole
      Good guys win!!

    • True, you’re not. What you ARE is evident: sticking your neck out to support a Nazi Low Rider and White Supremacist. Go smoke some white.

  8. Hahaha. This piece of shit got what he should have gotten a long time ago….a bullet through the head…good job to the cop who ended this worthless losers pitifull life. We dont need these kinds of criminals on our streets
