    http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/24/us/cal...hot/index.html

    More sad news breaking right now late this evening.A gunman fatally shot a Sacramento County Sherriffs Deputy who was responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle parked outside of a Motel 6.The deputy was a 15 year veteran with the department.His partner returned fire as the gunman inside the vehicle fled on foot.Shortly afterward it has been confirmed that 2 Placer County deputies were also shot during a search for the gunman as well as a civilian motorist who was carjacked.Police have located the civilian victims stolen pick up truck and say they are closing in "with all available resources" on the suspect.A female who was with the shooter when this all began has been taken into custody but not yet charged as it isnt known what her involvement is/was.

    RIP to the veteran officer,47 year old Danny Oliver who is survived by his wife and 2 daughters and speedy recovery to those who have been injured.Hopefully justice is served swiftly and convincingly.

                This country was founded on rebellion against lawful authority, not respect for it. That is the cornerstone of our culture and our Constitution.

                People misuse and abuse rights all the time. They shoot up schools with arms, they incite violence and hate with speech, they elect people like Obama with votes. That doesn't mean we suddenly pack up and eliminate rights because they are abused or misused. Millions of American have died for those rights, and millions more of our enemies have been killed to defend them. Eliminating them because two more peace officers were killed today would invalidate the deaths of all who have gone before.

                Just like a Soldier who walks onto the battlefield knowing he may die, or kill, to defend his nation and his way of life a peace officer walks his beat KNOWING that the limitations and restrictions on his actions not only mean that some guilty will go free, but that his life is at greater risk... and he, or she, accepts that possibility because to do otherwise wastes the courage and the sacrifice of all those who have walked their beats before him.

                  you shoot at any LE and miss - Life in prison

                  you shoot and kill any LE - sentenced to death with no death row after trial -

                  ------------------------------------------------

                  That will curve a lot of this ridiculous anti-LE thought process going around.

                    The second Deputy who passed was Deputy Michael Davis Jr of the Placer County Sheriffs Office. He died on the 26th anniversary of his father's Line of Duty Death.

                    The line of duty killing of a Northern California deputy sheriff Friday occurred 26 years to the day his deputy sheriff father died in the line of duty when his helicopter crashed during a pursuit of drug smugglers.

                    Michael Davis Jr., 42, of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office was 16 when his father was killed on Oct. 24, 1988. Davis followed Michael Davis Sr. into law enforcement when he got older.

                    Davis was shot to death Friday morning when a 34-year old man went on a shooting rampage in the Sacramento area. Authorities said the gunman also killed a Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy and wounded two others, Davis’ partner and a 38-year-old Sacramento civilian.

                    “I looked at my calendar and said, ‘Oh, God,’” Rick Kotholow, a retired Riverside County deputy sheriff told the Riverside Press-Enterprise.

                    Kothlow told the paper he worked with the elder Davis in Riverside and it was he who knocked on the door to tell Davis’ wife of the helicopter crash. He said Davis Jr. was the one who opened the door.

                    The helicopter was carrying Davis’ 34-year-old father, four other deputy sheriffs and three National Guardsmen as part of Operation Border Ranger, a joint drug smuggling interdiction operation near the Mexico border. The chopper snagged on a power line and exploded in a hillside, according to the website of the California Peace Officers Memorial Foundation.

                    The suspect , described as a "one-man crime spree," Marcelo Marques of Salt Lake City eluded hundreds of searchers before being hunted down and forced to surrender, authorities said.

                    He was examined at a hospital for unknown injuries.

                    "I think there's those people who would say, 'You know what, I wish you'd killed him,'" Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said at a news conference Friday evening, according to Fox 40 Sacramento. "Now, that's not who we are. We are not him. We did our job."

                    Marquez, 34, and a woman also taken into custody were questioned by investigators about their motives late Friday night, said Sacramento County sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman said.

                    It wasn't immediately clear when they would be formally booked.

                    The deadly chain of events began around 10:30 a.m. when Sacramento County sheriff's Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range as he checked out a suspicious car in a Motel 6 parking lot, authorities said.

                    Oliver, 47, was the first county deputy killed since 2008. The 15-year veteran left a wife and two daughters.

                    "He was not able to return fire or do anything" but his partner was able to shoot back, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said.

                    The car, which had a man and woman inside, then drove about a mile and the couple tried to carjack a driver and shot him in the head when he refused to give up his keys, authorities said.

                    Anthony Holmes, 38, of Sacramento, was listed in serious condition at a hospital Friday night, the Sacramento Bee reported

                    The attackers then stole another car and finally took a red Ford pickup from Jose Cruz, who was gardening outside a client's house in Sacramento.

                    Cruz told the Bee that a man in a white Ford Mustang convertible told him: "I need a favor."

                    "What's the favor?" Cruz asked.

                    "Your keys," the man said. "Hurry up, because they're chasing me...I don't want to hurt you."

                    Cruz said the man pointed a gun at him and had a bloody shirt wrapped around his other arm.

                    The couple then fled to neighboring Placer County, about 30 miles north of Sacramento, authorities said.In Auburn, the truck briefly pulled over to the side of a road where Davis and his partner Jeff Davis (no relation) spotted it and approached.

                    The gunman shot them with an AR-15-type assault weapon, Placer County sheriff's spokeswoman Dena Erwin said.
                    Davis, assigned to homicide investigations, died at a hospital. He was a 15-year veteran of the department and a father of four.

                    Davis, a 17-year veteran, was shot in the arm. He was released after treatment at a hospital.

                    "This guy was on a one-man crime spree today. He has no idea of the damage he did," Erwin said.

                    Dozens of deputies flooded the area but the gunman fled into a neighborhood near a high school and ran into a home.

                    Police finally used tear gas to flush Marquez from the basement of the home, witnesses said.

                    The long manhunt involved hundreds of officers from multiple agencies backed by search dogs, helicopters and armored vehicles. Residents nearby were told to stay indoors, and schools were locked down during the search.

                    Flags at the state Capitol were ordered flown at half-staff and Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement extending his sympathy to the families of the slain officers.

                    Their "brutal murders," Brown said, "...are a tragic reminder of the sacrifices we demand of our peace officers and the incredible courage they display as they protect our communities."

                    The slaying of the deputies was the single deadliest day for California law enforcement since February 2013. In separate incidents that month, former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner killed two law enforcement officers, and two Santa Cruz police detectives were shot and killed.
