Governor Brown & Wife Anne Offer Condolences to Deputy French's Family, Friends & Colleagues

Sacramento, CA...Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement regarding the death of Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Robert French: “Anne and I join all of Sacramento in grieving the loss of Deputy French, who died today while protecting our community. On behalf of all Californians, we extend our condolences to his family, friends and law enforcement brothers and sisters.”

Deputy French, 52, was fatally shot today while assisting with an investigation at a hotel in Sacramento. Two California Highway Patrol officers were also injured during the incident and are expected to survive.

Deputy French was a 21-year veteran of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and served in a variety of assignments. He is survived by his girlfriend, adult children, grandchildren and sister.

In honor of Deputy French, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

Interesting to see if any of the suspects were let out of per Browns early release, if so he has blood on his hands, and he is directly responsible for this.

    It was confirmed he was one of Brown's kids, non-violent...
    that sure has worked out great, hasn't it?

    You democrats should feel ashamed. Our brave men and women in
    blue try to keep these type of people off the streets, and you democrats
    let them out. Now we've lost another officer of the peace.
    I hope all of our Peace Keepers know how much appreciation most
    of the public has for all you brave men and women and all you try
    to do for us. How you do a job like you do must be nerve wracking these days, when you arrest them (especially up here)
    and the Judge sets a ridiculously low bail (unless he's a home owner)
    and let's out the criminal AGAIN to continue his/her normal daily struggles of stealing, drug use and selling drugs.
    It's cheaper for the county to let these criminals out and continue committing crimes against the public then to have to feed them, cloth them, give medical to them, and to give them their TV rights too.

    To the men and women in blue, thank you and sorry for your loss of another brother in a never ending battle.

To update this story, it was confirmed this ahold is one of Jerry's kids! He does have blood on his hands, and has learned nothing from his brainless actions! I hope the families of these police officers sue the crap out of Jerry and all of his Snowflake buddies in Sacramento! He needs to go to prison over this bull rap!

    And yet he was voted in for a third term and will probably be voted in for a fourth. Keep taking your "medical" marijuana, it makes for a very intelligent kalifornia.

      Yes, please listen to the drunk talk about the evils of marijuana.
      Preach on drunkard, don't forget to tell your kids about how
      many of your followers have killed people while drunk behind
      the wheel. The fights you get in, spousal abuse (you drunks do
      like hitting women). So please Mr Alcoholic, preach on about the evils of weed.

      An Alcoholic

Another great Democratic failure. You Democrats sure know the right thing to do. Thanks to you, another cop has died. Go march with the BLM and celebrate another victory of death.
