    Apr 1, 2015 | via KQED 

    The October 2013 shooting death of 13-year old Andy Lopez by Sonoma County sheriff deputy Erick Gelhaus left the community of Roseland, a largely Latino area in unincorporated Santa Rosa, in a state of ongoing shock. And as details emerged about the shooting - including the news that only ten seconds elapsed between the deputy calling in a suspicious person and radioing again after shooting the boy seven times from behind - students organized and led ongoing walkouts that were met with overpowering police presence, complete with helicopters overhead and police cars lining the entrance of Lawrence Cook Middle School , where Andy had been an eighth-grade student.

Cop made a HUGE mistake on my ticket, how do i deal?!
I was pulled over because my license plate light was out. My license was suspended at the time so my car was impounded. This happened 3 days ago, I was reading over my ticket and I noticed the cop put that i had an alcohol level of .08 or higher. I hadn't been drinking AT ALL. he didn't breathalyze me or do any sobriety tests. What do i need to do to fix his error?!
If you have a date to appear on a DUI charge in Sant Rosa, I would suggest hiring excellent local counsel as soon as...
Can the police in Ca. upon your arrest for DUI, call your employer and tell them you were arrested. Not a work related incident
an appointed employee was arrested for DUI accident with injury. The chief of police from the arresting city called the chief of police in the employee city and told them the non elected official was arrested before the person arrested could tell the employer himself. Most definially DUI, not an issue, just now the employer wants to do sanctions, and the arrestee hasn't gotten a chance to chat with them. The COP notify the other COP before the person was even out of the hospital (less then 12 hours).
I dont suppose its ilegal, but Imdont see how its part of the job description formthe police. Doubt there is any civil...
