CALIFORNIA OFFICER SHOT IN THE LEG BY 20-YEAR-OLD SUSPECT WHILE DRIVING BY OFFICER

From the Hemet Police Department:

“Attempted Murder of Peace Officer

On 11/23/20 at about 4:05 am, Hemet Police Officers responded to the 3400 block of W Florida Avenue following a report of someone shooting a gun in the area. Two officers arrived on-scene; one began checking the area for evidence of a shooting while the other officer spoke with the person who had made the call to police.

At about 4:19 am, the officer was speaking to the reporting party (r/p) in a parking lot near a fast food restaurant when the r/p said something to the effect of, “That looks like him.” and pointed to a vehicle slowly traveling through the same parking lot. At that time, the suspect fired at the officer from his vehicle. The officer, who did not return fire at the fleeing vehicle, was hit one time in the leg. The vehicle then continued through the parking lot and exited onto Florida Avenue as other officers converged on it.

The suspect, later ID’ed as 20 year old Robert Moran of Hemet, was taken into custody without incident on Florida Avenue adjacent to the parking lot where the shootings had taken place. A handgun was located on the front passenger seat of Moran’s vehicle. He was alone in the car. No officers fired their weapons during this incident.

The officer, who has not yet been identified, was transported to a Riverside County hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his knee. He is alert and in good spirits. He has been with the Hemet Police Department for 9 months and is assigned to patrol.

Arrested:

Robert Moran
Resident of Hemet, 20 years old

Attempted Murder of Peace Officer

Bail: $1 million”

We pray for the officers recovery and for justice. The war on police, and law and order needs to STOP! For all those who support those trying to protect and serve their communities, THANK YOU. Your support is critical during these trying times.

So sad:) Pray the officer heals fast. Super glad he wasn't killed. The state of the country seems to be losing against criminals and it seems it could get much worse with liberals in charge Presidential offices. They don't believe in keeping criminals behind bars. With no determent, more criminals will act on their career criminal thoughts. It's turning into a wild wild west as back decades ago past. God Speed healing and May God send thousands of angels to watch over our police

My first response to a law enforcement officer being shot continues to be sadness and prayers, but anger is not far behind!

Praying for a full and quick recovery! 🙏 Thank you for your service, and thank you to all those officers who put thier lives on the line everyday just showing up to work! 💙

Praying for the Hemet Police Officer who was shot in the knee. Praying for a full recovery.💙💙💙

Hope your Officer has a speedy recovery.x

Courts need to start locking these criminals up. No more being soft! Hold people accountable before it gets any worse. Are we this stupid people???

Prayers for the Officers full recovery. 🙏🏻💙👍

I'm so glad that the Officer was not seriously wounded. However, any gunshot wound is serious. Pray that he is home soon.

Glad it wasn’t worse. Kudos to the officers for responding so quickly and stopping this from something worse. Prayers to the officer for a complete recovery.💙

Healing prayers sent for a fast and full recovery. God Bless all officers everywhere. This also includes our 4-legged officers, as we just lost K-9 Titan, in Johnstown, Pa, while on duty. Heartbreaking. Johnstown Police K9 Unit
November 22 at 1:38 PM ·
November 22, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
It is with great sorrow that we report the death of K9 Officer Titan. This morning, K9 Officer Titan died honorably in the line of duty while searching for individuals evading police during a burglary in progress at 249 Maple Ave. in the Woodvale section of the City of Johnstown. K9 Officer Titan was the partner of Officer Brian Stevens and served honorably with the Johnstown Police Department since 2014.
At 04:19 hours this morning, officers were dispatched to burglary in progress at 249 Maple St., the old Goodwill warehouse. When officers arrived, they conducted a search of the building and apprehended two suspects hiding throughout the building. Officers on scene quickly found that there were to be five suspects in total and called for Officer Stevens and K9 Titan to assist with the search. While conducting a search for the remaining suspects, K9 Titan fell through an unsecured, open elevator shaft from the fourth floor.

So, this youngster was just testing the waters? He certainly is going to have plenty of time to think about what he did. Praying for the police officer 🙏🙏💙💙 please get well

Let's hope they keep that bail of 1 million and keep them in there. Politicians in California really need to step it up

Praying for all the officers and specifically for the wounded officer. 💙💙 Back the Blue

Prayers for the officer- revenge on the coward.

Hope for a speedy recovery. Praying for this country!!!!! Officers stay safe🖤💙🖤

Relieved the officer is ok, physically. Conversely, the mental effects of being shot with just 9 months in the department can be rough. Praying for his total recovery!!

Absolutely disgusting makes me mad officer doing his job to serve and protect and you get the scum of the earth doing this its time now the scum should get long sentences to stop them and do-gooder from Interfering sending lots of prayers for a speedy recovery 🙏 🙏🙏😍

So sad how thugs still at it

So glad I just left there after living in the area for 13 years. There was an OIS which left the suspect dead not far from there almost at the same time, maybe the night before. Couldn’t get out fast enough.

💙🙏❣️💙🙏❣️💙🙏❣️💙🙏❣️💙🙏❣️💙🙏❣️💙

ALWAYS BACK THE BLUE 💙 STAY SAFE 🙏 HERO'S 🇺🇸 YOUR LIVES MATTER 🇺🇸

There should be No opportunity for this kid to bail. Zero.

Prayers for God's healing touch upon this officer

Prayers for a full recovery.

🙏💙

What a blow to the Law Enforcement community as a whole. Whether they are lost in the line of duty or in their golden years of retirement, I think that the loss of one, let alone two, loyal K9 souls cuts deep. This must be especially true when the adversary is cancer. K9s are so noble, loyal, and true, and to be so helpless and unable to give back and save them from so merciless a killer must be soul-crushing and heartbreaking for all who know and love these brave Officers.

Rest Easy, and know that you both will never be forgotten. 💙🐾💙🐾💙

Cancer doesn't just destroy human lives–they both appear to have had full loves serving the community, their partners and their families.Im sure God has a special place for dogs in heaven. RIP💕💕🇺🇸🇺🇸😢😢

It is so hard when we lose a member of our family! Thanks for your service- you are loved and missed!!

So sorry for their partner’s loss and for the community. Beautiful K9s

I lost two of my GSD’s to cancer. My sincere condolences to their human partners.

Our deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved these two amazing K9s. RIP…..🐾🐾🐾

Thank you for being reasonable, and protecting our freedoms!

THANK YOU! No law enforcement agencies in my area are enforcing it either, I am backing the blue I believe in law and order and my comment is not intended to offend anyone

Thank you for your service of doing the right thing. I personally respect others to do the right thing and respect their freedoms. Thank you for respecting our freedoms and treating us as adults.

It’s a misdemeanor crime to violate a public health order. Law Enforcement Agencies still have discretion in the enforcement of most misdemeanor crimes. So, yes, they can pick and choose which misdemeanors to enforce.

Because the virus knows what time it is? Could the King be any more insulting? He clearly thinks nothing of insulting our intelligence. Thank you PCSO for not enforcing this stupidity. And I hope all of you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Wish all law enforcement agencies were like you guys in Placer County!

Thank you Placer County Deputies you are the Best damn officers in Calif.

I didn't realize police officers got to pick and choose what to enforce.

Thank for giving us back a little bit of our freedom. And, thank you for protecting all of us. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families. Please stay safe.

Thank you.
I’m house dad and barely awake past 8 pm but I’m pretty sure this isn’t occupied France.
Newsome needs to go

Absolutely! You guys got better stuff to do, stay safe!

It’s time to fight back against this tyrant!

Great picture. Keep up the great work.

Thank you PCSO. Stay safe!

I'm so proud of where I live ❤️

Sacramento County is not enforcing it either. ☺️👍

Thank you! ! Our county is so quiet anyways after 10pm! Thank you for not wasting your resources on this nonsense and protecting our county from the important stuff! ♥️🙏🏻

I love Placer County sheriffs!

BRAVO!! yes the only place people were dropping dead in the streets was in the first week in Wuhan..fake to scare the shit out of the world …it worked for a while …LOCK JOE. BIDEN & PELOSI UP …GOD BLESS AMERICA 😎

Thanks, Placer County Deputies, for refusing to be used as Flying Monkeys for tyrants!

I’m happy to see departments standing up against craziness! What is happening to this country???

Thank you for both taking an oath to uphold the Constitution,
and actually doing it.👍

Can you call the Lodi Pd and tell them to do the same??? Lol 😐 seriously need a better chief

Could you tell your folsom PD brethren to do the same plz

Stopped at a local gas station at around 1245am. LPD sitting in lot didn't do anything. Maybe individually they're not going to enforce it.

Update on our friends from the Minneapolis City Council — after officers quitting, skyrocketing crime and residents calling for help in their neighborhoods — the city council voted for an increase in funds to bring in outside mutual aid.

According to reports, while the council’s pledge “to end policing as we know it” delighted activists, it received heavy opposition from their residents. The vocal minority strikes again. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey posted that "neighborhoods across our city have endured an intolerable level of gun violence and crime. We sent a clear signal that we are ready to work collaboratively with our law enforcement partners."

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. These results speak for themselves — let’s bring some sanity back into our lives.

Thank you Placer County Deputies! You do a wonderful job serving Placer County and keeping Residents safe. 👏

They never should’ve had their knee jerk change in police policy to start with!
You can not have peaceful cities, without the peacemakers patrolling, detaining, arresting and if needed taking down the bad guys!
The city and state officials should get on their knees, beg Gods forgiveness and then apologize to every law enforcement officer in their state!

Shallow promises that come too late. Politicians would rather talk it to death than take definitive action. If the mayor had any courage, he would have condemned the recent acts of idiocy and let law enforcement do their job. Good luck trying to recover your city. Not going to happen very soon.

My opinion:
If I was an outside or local law enforcement agency I would tell the city council to pound sand. As soon as there is some semblance of control/crime reduction they will turn around and try to “defund” and prosecute law enforcement.

I hope the cities that are pushing to defund the police take notice. That doesn’t work and will only promote more crime. Who suffers? The poor and weak. Rich people can afford to live in gated communities where they don’t have to worry. Like our great governor who has his own little gated compound.

And yet these same citizens continue to vote in radical democrats like Omar! I don’t feel sorry for them

I would think the police officers would know NOT to trust anyone in a position of authority within Minneapolis.

You reap what you sow! Restore law and order and give these guys a raise for the bullshit they deal with! Shame on the city for caving to bullshit demands of an angry mob and not listening to the tax paying citizens of their city!

Obviously, the “politically correct” decision was the wrong choice. Let’s get back to the intelligent decision.

I wouldn’t think any other agency would want to send their officers in there! Minneapolis leadership is seriously messed up right now. I feel sorry for the residents and businesses. It used to be a fun place to go. Now you couldn’t pay me to go into the city.

Their residents need to vote for change. Until they do that this is the result. We can’t change stupid. We will always support our men and women in blue 🇺🇸

Only a complete moron would not have foreseen the consequences. Common sense is sorely lacking in the municipal and state governments . If you create a criminal friendly environment you reap what you sow. I feel badly for the citizens there, they desperately need to elect intelligent representatives.

What disturbs me is the quote in the article that says "with heavy opposition from the residents." The fact that the city council is going against the will of the people because they're afraid of the activists and what they'll do, only goes to show this country is being held hostage by BLM and antifa.
We are blessed with a wonderful PCSO and I'm grateful that our area shows them continued support.

There are no words to describe a council that has shown such a glaring lack of backbone, foresight and conviction in the face of a vocal few. It would take only one or two councilmembers with any semblance of what it is to be an American to stand up and say to those who call for defunding police, "Go to Hell!".

If similar to CA, the county sheriff would have the authority to shut down the city police agency for corruption, and for being in effectual. Ultimately the sheriff, an elected official, must ensure the safety of the citizens in their county. The sheriff could assume police services for the city and recover revenue from the city for that service. Bottom line, no city council has the moral or legal authority to vote away the safety of their citizens.

What they will come to find out over the next few years is that what they have done cannot be undone any time soon. The system of recruiting, training, and fielding law enforcement officers is simply not able to repair the damage done by these municipalities. EVERYONE will learn that truth the hard way. You reap what you sow.

If I remember correctly, the Mayor was the only one who stood up against defunding, right? Or am I thinking of somewhere else?

There are so many flaming trainwrecks right now it’s hard to keep track

Go figure. They may never fully recover from there insane decisions

What did they think would happen, everyone would abide by the law. Didn’t work out!!!

I would like to respectfully offer an updated and more concise definition of "Insanity". Insanity is being a democrat, which says it all.

How many of us saw this coming?? What a shame, because they lost a lot of great police officers in the process. 🖤💙🖤

Sadly, but no surprise here!! It appears to be happening all over in our democratic run cities … !!

What did they think would happen?? Problem is, they didn't think!! The citizens are now suffering, from lack of common sense.

The sheer idiocy of defund the police is incomprehensible to me. What did they expect? A kindergartner could have predicted this outcome. This is what we can expect when the progressives and PC folks finally take over. God help this next generation.
