    This article states: "“Officer Tonn was doing his job well,"

    I beg to differ, If he was doing his job well he would still be alive!

    From what I have read he was in his 30s. He has only had minor traffic violations..he has no record at all. I also read somewhere the cops believed he was a norteno gang member..but i highly doubt a gang member would not have anything on his record.

    If he wasn't involved in the burglary, the question should be, "What was he involved in if he was carrying a gun and used it on a police officer"? There is far too much gang activity throughout California. Our lax immigration policy enforcement is leading to our demise.
