One thought on “Woman shot by the SAPD was wanted in Orange, for killing another woman”
  1. Since DC and CP won’t approve any comment contrary to the sheltered view of the LOC, I thought I’d post this here. I know DC reads these pages SEVERAL times a day:

    DC, HELP, SOS Art Lomeli (P. David Benavides proxy) is getting his proverbial ass kicked over at the Voice Of OC. He sure could use some support. It looks like he talked himself into a hole again. Since all you really do is channel OC’s Right Wing Noise Machine, I’m sure you’ll jump on this Republican’s cause right away.

    Better yet as a bonus, these posts have nothing to do with Irvine, Long Beach, Orange Park Acre’s or any of you guys. So your busybody mentality will be right in place. It might get a little sticky as you have thrice defended P. David Benavides affairs as being “none of our business”.

    Get over there and rescue Carlos Bustamonte’s wingman’s chief defender: Art Lomeli.
