It appears that the story has changed ... 

… and the sheriff’s office originally withheld not only the race and identity of the suspect, only identifying him as an “active parolee,” but also withheld the extent of the officer’s  wounds, only citing that the officer was shot in the face and succumbed to his wounds in the hospital. Missing was the race: black; the suspect’s identification: Trenton Trevon Lovell; the violent history of the suspect – but most of all, that the deputy was wounded and deliberately shot multiple times.

L.A. County sergeant was 'executed' by gunman after being wounded, sheriff says 

A gunman who killed a Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant in Lancaster on Wednesday first wounded him, then stood over him and fired four additional rounds into the lawman’s body, Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Thursday.

“This was a calculated execution,” the sheriff said. The gunman was carrying a stolen weapon and after the shooting unsuccessfully searched Sgt. Steve Owen’s body for his handgun “with the intent to use it to murder” another deputy who was arriving to the scene, McDonnell said.

McDonnell, who refused to speak the suspect’s name, said the department first came into contact with him when he was selling marijuana as a juvenile. He was arrested 11 times, including two occasions that resulted in state prison time, the sheriff said. <Source>

The progressive socialist democrat parole system and plea bargains that allow felonies to become misdemeanors and gun charges to disappear in favor of a guaranteed conviction on lesser charges.  

Suspect in killing of L.A. County sheriff's sergeant was known for hot temper and violent history

The man suspected of gunning down a Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant during a burglary Wednesday has a history of violent criminal offenses and was said to have a hot temper, according to court records and acquaintances.

Trenton Trevon Lovell, 27, was identified Thursday as the suspect in the slaying of Sgt. Steve Owen in a Lancaster neighborhood. Lovell was living in an apartment in the same complex where the sergeant was shot, neighbors say. He was arrested Wednesday after he tried to flee in the sergeant’s cruiser, rammed another cruiser and then ran into a home with two teenagers inside, authorities said.

According to court documents, Lovell was convicted in 2009 of robbing a USC community safety officer at gunpointHe was sentenced to six years in prison and was on parole when he was arrested on suspicion of shooting Owen, a 29-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department. Months before the robbery conviction, Lovell pleaded no contest in July 2008 to resisting arrest and was given a 90-day jail sentence, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records. In September 2015, Lovell pleaded no contest to driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury to another person. Lovell also was ordered to complete a nine-month first-offender program and enroll in a drug and alcohol counseling program. He was scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 24 for a progress report. <Source>

From the mainstream media involving a teenager who chose “suicide by cop” and left a note …

Teen killed by police in South LA wanted to ‘end his own life,’ LAPD chief says

The teenager fatally shot by police in South L.A. over the weekend left a farewell note to his family before the encounter and appears to have wanted to end his life, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday.

Daniel Perez, 16, died Sunday afternoon after a confrontation with officers in the 4500 block of Ascot Avenue. Police said he was holding an item disguised to look like a gun. The orange tip of the item had been painted black to resemble an actual handgun. Shortly before Perez’s encounter with officers, a 911 caller told operators that a man with a gun was in the area, which prompted the police response.

Perez is believed to have made that 911 call based on his cell phone use, Beck said. One of Perez’s parents also listened to the call and confirmed the teen’s voice, according to Beck.

Perez’s death came one day after police shot and killed Carnell Snell, Jr., in South L.A. Snell, 18, was holding a gun and was shot after a foot pursuit by officers, police said.

Snell’s death prompted protests over the weekend and calls for the LAPD to use restraint when confronting suspects, particularly African-American men.

Also on Thursday, a group of social, community and labor groups declared “a state of emergency” in light of the recent shootings and demanded Los Angeles City Hall leaders investigate the incidents.

The Community Coalition, Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, Los Angeles Community Action Network, the Brotherhood Crusade and SEIU 721 sent an open letter urging City Hall to “act with urgency to address the disproportionate use of lethal force against black and Latino residents.”   <Source>

If you examine the records, most of those encounters with law enforcement involved armed felons or thugs that were attempting to evade law enforcement officials and represented a major threat to the surrounding community. Yes, there have been instances of poor training and outright accidental shootings – but nobody has ever proven that any law enforcement officer got up that day and decided to kill someone. I cannot understand why the progressive socialist democrats continue to fete the socialists, communists, anarchists, thugs, and criminals – and then claim that they are attempting to make the community safer. A big lie that can be amply demonstrated by the thousands of deaths in the inner cities governed by these very same progressive socialist democrats and their union cronies. 

Governor Jerry Brown and his cadre of socialists and communists are at it again for the November 2016 election …

[X] NO ON PROPOSITION 57 

Once again, we find that the definition of “non-violent” felons can be applied to murderers, rapists, and other violent felons whose last few crimes appear to be non-violent. How one can consider a drug-dealer non-violent when he destroys the lives of children and families is beyond me. Juveniles today are knowingly capable of murder and other heinous acts, giving additional discretion to judges means that rich parents with expensive lawyers can “work the system” to get violent children released into the community. I am voting NO on California Proposition 57.


CRIMINAL SENTENCES. PAROLE. JUVENILE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS AND SENTENCING. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. 

Allows parole consideration for nonviolent felons. Authorizes sentence credits for rehabilitation, good behavior, and education. Provides juvenile court judge decides whether juvenile will be prosecuted as adult.

Fiscal Impact: Net state savings likely in the tens of millions of dollars annually, depending on implementation. Net county costs of likely a few million dollars annually.

Bottom line …

Perhaps it is time to have a separate fast-track for the death penalty where the circumstances are clear and a law enforcement officer was killed. Additionally, we know that the progressive socialist democrats on the national stage are incapable or unwilling to protect and defend America and ALL Americans, perhaps we should recognize that the progressive socialist democrats in the states, especially the State of California, are incapable or unwilling to protect ALL of their constituents. One need only look at the inner cities to know that this is a self-evident truth.

We are so screwed.
