The day after Diaz was killed, a gang investigator patrolling a nearby neighborhood saw a stolen vehicle and tried to pull it over, according to the police association. The driver instead led officers on a short pursuit and crashed; three people got out and ran.
One of them, Acevedo, turned during the chase and fired a handgun at an officer, the police association said. The officer returned fire, killing him. A handgun was recovered next to his body.
Were any of these people who were killed by police actually innocent decent citizens minding their own business? No. I hate when people who are involved in a shit ton of bad things end up getting caught up and then the families try to capitalize on it like they are an innocent victim. Their lifestyle lead them to their grave. The worst part is it wouldn't have mattered if this guy had a grenade in his hand, the city is already under scrutiny and they will end up settling this case to please the general public. How's that for justice? oh and rioting and breaking into stores al la Rodney King does nothing but punish innocent store owners and does NOTHING to fight your "cause". Keep riding that bandwagon.
