This story has been edited since it first went up yesterday. The new version is more favorable to the police. One absolutely shocking statement from police spokesman Officer Roland Holmgren is now gone. You can read the original version here (PDF!).
The disturbing line (emphasis added):
“We understand residents are scared,” Holmgren said. “It’s something we’re working on so they don’t have that fear. For the most part these are not random acts of violence. Our message to the community is if you’re not doing something you’re not supposed to, then you should be fine.“
I’d like to hear him tell that to Christopher Rodriguez.
