Three Dead in Probable Murder Suicide on Homestead Road

Pine Grove, CA...On September 8, 2021, at approximately 7:04 pm, ACSO dispatch received multiple calls of gunshots heard in the 21000 block of Homestead Road in Pine Grove. One report stated they heard a female yelling, “You shot him!” after the gunshots were fired. ACSO deputies responded to the scene and began to establish a perimeter. As the initial deputies arrived, ACSO dispatch received a report from a 45 year old female, who said she witnessed her 46 year old boyfriend shoot his father at the residence on Homestead. This witness informed deputies that she immediately fled the scene and at that time there were three people inside the residence.





With the assistance of the California Highway Patrol and CHP helicopter, a perimeter was set and announcements were made into the residence. There was no response from the residence.

The ACSO Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) was subsequently activated and responded to the scene. After a methodical search of the property, SWAT personnel located a deceased female on the back porch of the main residence. After making entry into the main residence, SWAT personnel located two deceased males inside.

Once the scene was secure, ACSO Investigations and Crime Scene Investigations personnel began an extensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.

At this time, this is considered an active and ongoing investigation. The investigation has led the Sheriff’s Office to believe that there are no outstanding individuals and there is no public safety risk.

Manners and causes of deaths will be determined by forensic post examinations. The names of the deceased will not be released until confirmation of identity and notification of next of kin.

9-11 and the Danger that " Leave Americans Behind Biden" Created
Posted on: 2021-09-11 07:55:08   By: Anonymous
 


Thank you to all of our Military Personnel and our Law Enforcement officers.
" The day that marked 20 years since 9/11 was always going to be a momentous occasion. It was likely going to be a day of reflection and remembrance. Instead, it now looms large against the precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Instead of honoring those who fought the Taliban for the past 20 years, we are instead witnessing the Taliban control more money, more territory, and more weaponry than ever before. We are seeing once-held Taliban detainees now serve freely and openly in senior levels of the Taliban government.

While our government is far better structured to protect our homeland, addressing evolving threats requires intellectual agility and sound decision-making from the commander in chief. Where today is that sound judgment so desperately needed to protect our country?



To be clear, the disastrous withdrawal by President Joe Biden didn’t need to occur. It could have been averted by the withdrawal plan the Trump administration left for him.

The Trump plan was based around a conditions-based withdrawal that depended on final successful peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Ghani government.

The Trump administration’s withdrawal plan was designed to have prevented the kind of botched and chaotic mess we witnessed. It was also designed to provide a foundation for the Afghan people to build on in planning the future of their country. In other words, it would have been the basis of a future Afghanistan as designed and built by the people of Afghanistan.

Although Afghanistan belongs to the people of Afghanistan, the threats emanating from that region matter greatly to Americans. So we left a plan in place, along with our broader approach to protecting Americans’ security.


Today, we are not only witnessing the damage President Biden is doing to America’s credibility around the world, but we are also witnessing the creation of a new Afghanistan that will likely be deeply dangerous and pose a new set of threats to Americans at home. This new Afghanistan, much like America’s withdrawal from the old one, was born on Biden’s watch.

The full picture of the threats from Afghanistan are yet to materialize but based on our experience they are likely to be far darker and complex. To address this emerging threat, we need a commander in chief who is resolute and steadfast in protecting Americans and American interests first.

Gen. Keith Kellogg: ‘There must be some accountability at a senior level’Video
Stranding Americans in Afghanistan, relying on the Taliban to vet and screen individuals wanting to leave that country, and calling terrorists "businesslike" is not only deeply flawed from a policy perspective but also lacks the leadership needed right now.


Today, just as then, al Qaeda and its offshoot groups will seize on grievances of how America disengaged, and will quickly build local and global support for their cause.

Today, however, they are newly armed with the advanced assets that America left behind in Afghanistan. Terrorists are also in a better position to build regional and local alliances with a range of actors who are bent on exploiting America’s loss of credibility and standing.

And al Qaeda is only but one of many actors who are both able and willing to harm Americans at home and overseas. The Islamic Republic of Iran, under new leadership and far closer to attaining a nuclear weapon, has little reason not to unleash its proxies—particularly Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Shiite militias in Iraq—as it already has been doing.

More from Opinion
KT McFarland: 20 years after 9/11 it's like we've been gut-punched again. Still, don't count Americans out
Lauren Appell: Grateful on 9/11 to Flight 93 heroes – their sacrifice saved lives, mine included
Rep. Blake Moore: On 9/11 these are the people I will remember
China and Russia are also watching closely, and comfortably exploring ways of threatening Americans in the near term as well as, perhaps more ominously (and much like during the Obama-Biden era), building longer-term strategic alliances with America’s adversaries for the right moment to undermine America down the road.


The new Afghanistan born in August 2021 will undoubtedly be a place that breeds more threats for Americans for years to come. Unlike the withdrawal, the Biden administration needs a strategy and executable plan for its aftermath.

As we mark twenty years since the attacks of September 11, all Americans are watching closely.

John Ratcliffe served as the 6th U.S. Director of National Intelligence during the Trump Administration. He is currently Co-Chairman for American Security at the America First Policy Institute. A Republican, he represented Texas' Fourth Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives from 2015 - 2020.

Chad Wolf served as acting Homeland Security secretary from 2019-2021. He is Chairman of the Center for Homeland Security and Immigration at the America First Policy Institute"

    ^Now here is a complete line of BS. Trump left Biden a withdrawal plan? Trump, planning? Fact is, the outgoing Trump administration completely resisted ANY effort by the Biden administration to transition in as smooth a way as possible. It's not a stretch to say Trump did his utmost to sabotage Biden's takeover. That effort culminated in Trump sending terrorists to overthrow the government on January 6th.
    As events unfolded recently in Afghanistan the thought occured to me that it may have been Trump's intention to force Biden and America into this catastrophe. He benefits politically. He gave the Taliban a sweetheart deal; committed us to an evacuation date certain, had 5,000 Taliban released from prisons, and drew troops down to a dangerous 2,500 troop level, despite warnings from his own defense secretary. Trump set the Afghanistan withdrawal up, and he walked before it blew up. Biden just happened to be the guy left in the seat when it happened.

      Exactly. Poor loser Trump didn't even meet with incoming President Biden as generations of presidents had done prior. Instead, he snuck out the day before and left it to an aide. Three previous administrations had kicked the Afghan war down the road; only Biden was willing to make the difficult decision to stop sacrificing more American lives and dollars.

        Short memory you might have. Maybe you couldn’t wipe by yourself yet. Not taught howBiden was the Vice-President and as senator voted for war and supported it. Watch the ole fella speak in a speech as VP and speaking today. He was lost then and is clearly lost today, it’s appears that the cheese has completely slide off the cracker. I would be embarrassed if I died for this country and my name was spoken out of his mouth. He has completely lost his whatever mind he had. How does he get the Presidential Medal of Freedom …oh that’s right everyone gets a trophy nowadays. Nobody wants to hear about Beau. And how Hunter is the smartest person you know. Speaks volumes to this fella. Aka the ice cream eater.

      It is pretty sad, I agree because it's not the proper place. But I also see the outrage. Did you know the hotline for military suicide prevention lines were overwhelmed when Biden's decisions killed 13 our our soldiers and somewhere around 160 civilians? If you didn't serve in our military, I doubt you'd ever understand that you don't need to know those who died, or have been injured to feel the pain bone deep, the sadness, the outrage, of a disastrous decision or in this case decisions. This is why they will have a very thorough investigation and what was in Trump's withdrawal plans. Did Biden just toss those plans aside like Biden has done with many of Trump's policies, like the border wall, and immigration which has turned into a nightmare?
      Time will tell.

        I imagine the Pentagon had some sort of withdrawal plan. That is not a Trump withdrawal plan. Trump had no plan, otherwise he would have been out of Afghanistan before the election, or by the the time he left office at latest.
        He promised to leave and failed.
        Trump, promises made, promises broken.

    It's so sad remembering that day and all of the lives lost, but Americans did indeed come together.
    Now we have a National Disgrace of a president. Not only did he lie FIVE TIMES about asthma which he never had before in his life, but one of his son's a disgrace to the uniform of our military, a drug addict, a drunk, and a lying POS like his father the coward. To top it all off, he slapped every person who has served proudly in the military, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and brother in arms by abandoning American citizens and thousands of our Afghanistan Allies, and those allies right this second are being hunted, pulled out of their homes in front of their wives, their kids and taken away never to be seen again.
    Twenty years ago today, and today, we have a president...our Commander In Chief who abandoned Americans in a hostile country, unfricking believable that this alleged president is still in office. He not only abandoned citizens and afghan Allies, but this Coward didn't even have enough brains to call our Allies in NATO telling them that he had no idea what he was doing but pulling out our military before our citizens our EIGHTY FOUR BILLION DOLLARS IN WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT.
    Biden is hands down the WORST PRESIDENT WHOS EVER BEEN IN OFFICE, and now he's pissing on every person who's has or currently is serving in our military. Many flies of those who perished on 9-11 or served or signed up because of 9-11 asked, told Biden not to show up to Ground Zero.
    It's been said " Leave Americans Behind Biden" has a speech, it's not live, it's been prerecorded. Why? Because he would of even screwed that up because of his mental state be it Dementia or being senile, no matter what, he's an EMBARRASSMENT OF A COMMANDER IN CHIEF, AN EMBARRASSMET OF A PRESIDENT AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO ALL WHO WEAR A UNIFORM OR HAS SERVED IN OUR MILITARY.
    YOU'LLL NEVER HAVE THE RESPECT OF OUR ENLISTED SOLDIERS BIDEN AFTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE, NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS, YOU'LL ALWAYS BE REMBERED FOR THE BIGGEST MILITARY BLUNDER CAUSING SOLDIERS TO BE KILLED, AMERICANS AND ALLIES LEFT BEHIND, ARMING A TERRORIST COUNTRY WITH THE BEST WEAPONS MONEY CAN BUY AND TURNING YOUR BACK ON OUR ALLIES.
    TRULY DISGUSTING.

            bush allowed 9-11

            www.9-11commission.gov/report/911Report.pdf pages 215 - 256



            The 9-11 commission states that bush was warned for 6 months by the NSA , FBI, CIA that Bin Laden was plotting to attack the US using commercial aircraft. He was warned weekly, then daily with updates, bush ignored it all. He and cheney wanted the attacks, for bush's war, he wanted for reelection.


            America suffers from a duplicitous media that is owned by those who wanted the wars and $ to be made.

            This is the sociopathy that is the American oligarchy. They were willing to allow thousands to die and start a war all for $.


            There was no surprise attack, bush cheney allowed the attacks, the 9-11 report states this, read it.

                  Proof you fools have lost your minds. If you haven't a clue about 9 /11 and what happened before and after just stfu. What's the point, your argument is null and void. Do you enjoy embarrassing yourselves? Yet here you are whining about Biden acting as though it's all his fault. Your ignorance is actually scary. That these people are truly this far gone.
