RIP LA County Sheriff Deputy Jerry Ortiz

Another peace officer has been gunned down in cold blood. His name is Los Angeles county Sheriff deputy Jerry Ortiz. Officer Ortiz was knocking on doors down in the city of Hawaiian Gardens looking for gang members and he was shot point blank range in the head by gang member Jose Luis Orozco. They caught him a few doors down from where the shooting took place. At least he didn't get a chance to flee to Mexico. I guess we can be thankful for that. This is just another example of how hard the job that police officers have. They truely love what they're doing because they certainly aren't in it for the money. These guys are constantly getting shot at. My hat is off to all the police officers around the country.

    Such a tragic event! All of it could have been prevented.. individuals like Orosco slip thru the system and yet others get convicted wrongly. Our legal system needs a total revamp. Sometimes if you have plenty of money you can get away with murder, something is wrong with the way we convict.

    Words can not convey the tears that poured out of my eyes while reading some of the context in this blog, and I didn't know the young man. I believe even if Orosco is convicted to "death" which is what he deserves. It'll be a long time before he is executed, I don't even want to start on capitol punishment! I want to thank the Professionals that patrol our city streets, and make our communities a safer place to live. Deputy Jerry Ortiz you rest in peace you wont be forgotten!
