sometimes police officers must do their jobs. if that were me i would have shot too especially if they were grabbing for my service gun. this neighborhood has had its problems even i have phoned about fights in the area. people need to take thier violence out of hayward and to a deserted area like the wild west days

Sounds like good police work. The 'victims' sound like typical Hayward trash.
