  1. Prayers to the officer and wish you well in your recovery. We need you back out there so heal quickly!

  2. Our police department does not need anymore black eyes. Hope the officer is not found at fault.

  3. i’m pretty sure the driver was not speeding, if he did he would og got arrested, thats just logically speaking, hope the officer gets well and get back to serve the community!

  4. The North-South direction of Somersville Road at Somersville Town Center has a weight-sensored protected left turn signal. After the light turns to red on Somersville Town Center, the Somersville Road would turn green arrow, then yellow, then red arrow, before the opposing direction would get it’s green light. Assuming that the officer didn’t run a red light while making a left turn in broad daylight, it’s likely the Martinez driver’s fault.

  5. Wells Fargo does not need any publicity. They get enough recognition charging people ridiculous fees while their employees steal from their customers SMH
