And in other news

By Patrick Van Roy On June 7th, 2020

“In my 32-year career, this is my worst day I’ve ever experienced,” Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart said at a news conference on Saturday evening. “Today we lost one of our own and he was a true hero.” He said Gutzwiller, who joined the sheriff’s office in 2006, is survived by a young child and a pregnant wife.

 

“In this era that we’re in, when you think about what you want to see in a police officer, compassion, caring, somebody who truly loves his job, who wants to help people, that’s what Damon was,” Hart said. “He was good man and a good police officer.”

 

The sheriff’s office received a report at 1:30 p.m. of a suspicious van with guns and bomb-making devices inside.

 

When deputies arrived, they saw the van leave and followed the vehicle, according to Sheriff Jim Hart. As the vehicle pulled into a driveway on Waldeberg Drive, the officers were ambushed with gunfire and many improvised explosives after getting out of their vehicle. Sergeant Damon Gutzwiller, 38, was wounded and taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. A second deputy was injured, and a third officer from the California Highway Patrol was shot in his hand, Hart said. The two officers have not been identified and officials say they are hopeful they will recover.

 

The suspect, Steven Carrillo, was shot during his arrest and was being treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Hart said. Carillo is now facing several charges, including murder, assault with a deadly weapon and carjacking.

The Sheriff’s Department and the FBI are investigating.

 

Just another day on the job.

  1. He said Gutzwiller, who joined the sheriff’s office in 2006, is survived by a young child and a pregnant wife.

    I’d have no problem putting the noose around the murderer’s neck. None at all.

  2. When are the protests going to kick off?

  3. Why should there be protests Harri. Was this murderer carrying out a State role when he carried out his vile act ? Who would the protesters be trying to influence ?

    All Lives Matter.

    Not just black lives.

    You see how this works now?

    Ah, I see, he was white. Not enough righteous points to be collected.

    I get it now.

  5. No you don’t get it. You never will.

  7. ‘Antifa’…….probably.

  8. Ah, only “ state “ violence is worthy of protest.

    It is possible to protest non state violence. It’s been done many times in many countries

    If violence is what one actually opposes

    Ah, only “ state “ violence is worthy of protest.

    That is not my position. Of course non state violence can be protested against, as has happened against the activities of terrorist groups, but its just simplistic nonsense when people condemn protests against the activities of police/state officials with a “why don’t they protest against” and hen name acts of random murder committed by criminals.

    The idea that just because you protest against police abuses, you don’t care about murders or crimes committed by common criminals is a lazy false and stupid analogy.

  12. Brussels now..

    Why are they all dressed in “black-bloc”?

    Spooky.

  14. What are you on about Harri ?

    Are you really that dumb?

  16. I posted that before you added the link. I must admit I did find the Dr Fauci spoof tweet below quite funny. 🙂

  17. Black bloc

    But, but, but.

    They don’t all wear black-bloc, in fact they don’t even exist?

    😌

  18. The idea that just because you protest against police abuses, you don’t care about murders or crimes committed by common criminals is a lazy false and stupid analogy

    The big difference being of course is that violent crime is illegal and those who uphold the law aren’t expected to resort to the same thing. Criminals are gonna crim, you don’t expect those public servants funded by taxpayer’s buck to do the same.

    absurd analogy.

    I’d have no problem putting the noose around the murderer’s neck. None at all.

    In principle I’m against the death penalty Pete but from what the article says this guy deserves to spend the rest of his natural life locked up.

  22. Paul

    Err, look again.

    Yes, of course they are.

    Jesus H Christ mate.

  23. Er.

    Black face covering, black leggings, black sunglasses, black hoods.

    Give me strength.

    Someone doth protest far too much..

  24. Yes, of course they are

    Are what? ‘Black bloc?’

    So they’re not ‘antifa’ ‘anarchists’ ‘lefties’ or ‘liberals’ or are they all those too?

    These two women are wearing the same “uniform” as other vandals in other cities. All black. Long sleeves. Hoods when hair is light. Black masks. Hard to tell their race in a crowd. Who is telling them how to dress? Note everyone else is in short sleeves.

    From your own link.

    Of course they are Antifa.

    If you don’t realise that, then I’m sfrisd there is nothing more I can do to help you mate.

  26. *afraid

  27. Are what? ‘Black bloc?’
    So they’re not ‘antifa’ ‘anarchists’ ‘lefties’ or ‘liberals’ or are they all those too?

    Huh!

  28. So who’s telling them how do dress?

    Is it an order from the ‘antifa’ leaders?

  29. Oh my days!

    Like I said.

    I really can’t help you anymore.

  30. Maybe one last shot..

    Who told these to dress like that?

    Maybe there was an offer on at Primark?

    Your skinhead type Doc Martens.

    They are not black by any chance are they?

    😉

  32. Paul

    You are wicked. Mentioning those 2 white girls in LA. Are you trying to lure Harri away from his devoted Shady sisters ? 🙂

  33. Colm.

    The Shader Antifa sistas despise white peoples.

    So, you would be in pretty good company with them mate.

    Your turn

    Carry on

    😉

  34. Who is telling them how to dress?

    So who is it? Is it an order from the leaders of ‘antifa’?

    Can you be a non ‘antifa’ and be in the ‘Black Bloc’?

    Or is what you’re saying is that the ‘Black Bloc’ are a dress sense? Is that right? If so tomorrow I’m going to wear a Man Utd rig and tell everyone I’m in Man Utd.

  35. I thought Phantom was obsessed with those 2 delightful belles, but boy, his obsession pales into insignificance compared to yours !

  36. Colm.

    There is no chance of the Shader sistas visiting your flat mate.

    One look at the rats wearing overalls , the sistas would soon scarper, just after they have wiped their feet on the way out..

    Your turn.

  37. delightful belles

    ?

    They attempted to burn four police officers alive.

    You really are a strange one.

  38. // Was this murderer carrying out a State role when he carried out his vile act ? Who would the protesters be trying to influence ?//

    Colm, protests should be made by those on the same side of someone they don’t agree with. e.g. a protest in the US about some evil done by the US is legitimate, but a protest about a US crime in, say, Teheran would be a bit silly.

    If the people who are killing these cops come from or are associated with the BLM movement, then that movement must protest against them. If someone knows who did it, how about running riot in the killer’s street and burning down his house?

    Rioters obviously think rioting is an effective tool (or they’re just doing it for fun). So either they agree with these killings of cops or they don’t. If even some of them don’t, let’s seem them rioting in the places where the killer comes from.

    Im still trying to get my head around your confusing 9:40pm comment

    Phantom.

    I am very reassured now that you have joined Harri in carrying out your now daily duty 🙂

  41. And Colm is off again..okey dokey,,here we go then

    Colm is all confused..and stuff.

    No change or surprises there then.

    😉

  42. Harri

    Care to explain Noel’s 09:40pm ?

  43. Colm.

    Why?

    Can you not work it out?

    Good Lord!

    😏

  44. //Im still trying to get my head around your confusing 9:40pm comment//

    Colm, I was commenting on your comment that the cop killer wasn’t state forces and therefore there was no point protesting against him.

    I was saying, obviously not very successfully, that protests are reasonable when you’re complaining about some action by so members of a group you belong to or who claim to represent you. Thus the protests in the US asgainst US crimes in Vietnam or the protests by Catholic women in NI against IRA killings etc.

    So the BLM movement could well, and should, protest very strongly against these killers. If some rioter knows who the cop killer was, why don’t they riot on his street and burn his house`(presuming they don’t agree with the cop killing and believe rioting is an effective tool)

  45. Noel

    BLM are an organisation set up specifically to protest and activate against what they perceive to be the failure of the lawful authorities to deal with unjustified police killings of black people. Why should they be expected to protest against completely different types of killings. Its as daft as saying that a Cancer charity should be condemned because they aren’t raising money against Alzheimers or heart disease !

  46. Harri

    Your 9:58 is exactly what I expected in response. Pathetic.

  47. Colm.

    Good show.

    At least you weren’t disappointed then.

    Being pissed and disappointed, is not a good evening mate.

    Cheer up.

    😀

  48. //BLM are an organisation set up specifically to protest and activate against what they perceive to be the failure of the lawful authorities to deal with unjustified police killings of black people//

    Then it’s badly named.

    Do they protest against killings of blacks only when the killer is a cop?

    Would they, for example, protest if a white bouncer killed a black man and it wasn’t properly investigated? What about a black man killed by white warders in prison?

    I’ve a feeling (but maybe I’m wrong) that they’d protest against these failures to investigate too.

    Now, what if a black man is killed by a black cop? What if a black cop is killed by a black rioter, or simply a black man killed by another black man, and if the killings aren’t properly investigated?

    My guess is that all Black Lives don’t Matter.

    BTW Colm, I see that the US embassy and the riots are in your neck of the woods. As if you’re daily life there wasn’t already so dangerous 🙂

  49. Colm.

    It appears you are from here on in.

    Playing with yourself.

    So, a usual night in for you then..

    😉

  50. OK I may be playing with myself but , yes Noel, you are right BLM is a deeply one sided sanctimonious narrow virtue signalling organisation and there is a great deal of cant and myopic rhetoric around this whole phenomenon that has erupted since the death of George Floyd – and I certainly sense here in the UK, probably the US and elsewhere a timid unwillingness to challenge the accepted narrative that has merged around this movement, but that still doesn’t explain why they would be expected to protest against the killing of this white cop !

    On that point I bid anyone still here, goodnight !

  51. Tucker Carlson points out that cults demand control of minds, usually though not always, the soft, badly-informed minds of idealistic youth who know ‘everything’:

    And it’s happening everywhere in the white world. I was in the capital of the Scottish Highlands today: Inverness. The main bridge across the river Ness was bedecked in placards and messages condemning white racism, demands for support of Black Lives Matter etc – in Inverness!! I looked at the physiognomy of those on the bridge who were writing their support for this insanity and it was exactly as expected: young men and women, say 15 – 25, student-appearance, and the smirk of self-abasement before something so absolutely right that facts cannot affect the righteousness of the ideology. Ultimately, it ends up with this…..

  52. What you call “Black Bloc” is referred to over here as “Urban Camouflage”

    Black jeans, and a black hoodie just add mask.

  53. //the protests by Catholic women in NI against IRA killings etc//

    The ‘Peace People?’

    Far too simplistic.
