  • State Attorney General determines four Vista shootings were justified

    SAN DIEGO -- The state Attorney General's office on Monday found Sheriff's deputies involved in four fatal Vista shootings in 2005 were justified.

    The findings were part of a review that was conducted at the request of North County's El Grupo and the San Diego-based Coalition for Justice after the county District Attorney's office concluded the shootings were justified and declined to bring charges against the deputies.

    "The Department of Justice review of the District Attorney's decision finds that specific deputies acted without discriminatatory animus and justifiably used deadly force either in self defense or in defense of others," said a statement released at a 10 a.m. press conference at the state Attorney General's office in downtown San Diego.


    Said Gary Schons, senior assistant attorney general in charge of the San Diego regional office, "We have come to the conclusion that the district attorney did not abuse her discretion in finding the shootings were legally justified. Although tragic, they were justified as a matter of law."

    Bill Flores, spokesman for El Grupo, and Cleo Malone, spokesman for the Coalition for Justice, said they were not satisfied with the fact that there has still been no independent investigation of the shootings.

    Flores said they do appreciate the fact that the attorney general's office has listened to their concerns and taken some action.

    The shootings occurred between March 7 and Aug. 1, 2005.

      They also involved subjects under the influence (meth), and in one case, an armed robbery committed in the same proximity.

        And despite all of the attempts by the family and the liberal action groups to portray these SUSPECTS as poor innocent victims of police brutality there are still many of us that know all of these SUSPECTS were gang members/affiliates, had prior criminal records, refused to cooperate with the deputies by fleeing and made movements that caused the deputy pointing a weapon at them to think they were reaching for a weapon. It was unfortunate that these four shootings came so close together, but heres a novel idea......if there have already been shootings recently and you are running from the police DONT make it look like you are reaching for a weapon while you are actively fleeing. Vista is the SO station with the most calls for service and the most active gang problem in all of the contract cities, yet some people just cant wake up and realize Vista has a lot of problems.
