Hemet Attacks

Hemet, Calif., Police Department on Alert for Deadly Booby Traps - AOL News

Police in Hemet, California are facing real terrorist attacks. Attacks like this are very rare in the United States, but some evil doers are actually making a project out of trying to kill any officer who works in that area. They have attempted to blow up a police building with a natural gas explosion that could have killed a number of people, they have tried to set a bomb in a car and they have set up a device to shoot someone opening the gate to a police office. They have also tried several other methods to kill officers.

One or more motorcycle gangs are suspected in these attempts to kill an officer. They are ruthless criminals and they don't care how many other people are killed or injured, just so long as they can kill a cop. Local, state and national authorities have targeted some potential suspect groups and are conducting sweeps to violate parole, probation and arrest those with warrants.

When an agency comes under an attack of this magnitude, the response by officers must take many angles. Officers must exercise their own counter-surveillance techniques, and report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities. They must work with all other agencies in the area to track down and arrest the suspect and their associates. The stress must be reversed from the officers back to the gangsters responsible for this type of attack; that's what the SGT Says.

Dear Bunkermeister,
This is a chilling precedent to have set for law enforcement across the nations. And another thing.

It's a chilling statement for every law-abiding citizen in this country.

I hope they bust everybody in this gang. They also need to find the inventor, he will be someone with a machine shop. That also fits with the motorcycle gang connection.

Very frightening sign.

Thanks for making me aware,
Ann T.

Sarge:
When I read about this...I damn near hit the roof!

The VAGOS are the gang members responsible for these heinous attacks against our OWN "blue line"...!

I would say the LEOs need to do three things:
1) Hit 'em hard.
2) Hit 'em fast.
3) Hit 'em continuously.

And then repeat as necessary to make sure everyone that is SUPPOSED to go home...goes home.
(the rest already KNOW where they're headed)

We should not stand for this...not on our OWN soil...NOT in America.
But hey, that's just *my* opinion.

Stay safe.

I lived in Hemet in 1984 and it was the deadest most boring place on the earth. I guess times change.

This is a terrible precedent for American law enforcement. Bob you hit the nail on the head, as usual!

P&S, it's only exciting now that you are gone, crime was in check when you were on the beat!
