  1. Funny that Councilwoman Martinez doesn’t have the respect or common decency to sit and listen to over 100 residents at a city council meeting. Instead running to the back room to stuff her face with pizza durning the meeting while Santa Ana residents voiced their concerns and then she left the meeting, with pizza sauce still dripping from her face, an hour early!

    BUT when it’s time to grandstand at some Vietnemise presser she’s there and ready to put on her Vata serious face to act like she’s concerned. Did they offer Spring Rolls and Pho to eat after?

    The people know how shallow you are Martinez and no one, not one S.A. employee, not one resident respects you.

  2. a few questions that come to mind are… did the car ever leave the curb when it was allegedly driven at the officers? Did the officers repark the vehicle and taint a possible crime scene? Was this force excessive given that no apparent crime was committed by victim?

  3. Mr.Nguyen is not threatened to the two officers and it’s not necessary to shot him death. This two officers had taken away one’s life.
