Second Fatal Shooting by Mendocino Deputies Eradicating marijuana this year!

Another man was killed by  Law Enforcement officers in in the Small Town of Laytonville in Mendocino County, by law enforcement officers using a “more aggressive approach”, mainly utilizing a “confrontational style raid” in what appears to be the deadliest year yet for Mendocino County marijuana growers.

Black Ops Raid

Typical Black ops Raid

Five Mendocino County Deputies were put on administrative leave, according to an “initial Sheriff’s reports”,  Sheriff Deputies as part of a team of 60 law enforcement officers were serving a warrant 3 miles west of Laytonville, in the  early morning hours of day break in the  Bauer Road area of Laytonville, (knowing the area, presumably on private property) when according to initial (white wash) reports, as always the case-  “a subject appeared and displayed a rifle” as officers  were busy eradicating the marijuana garden. In later reports the story changed  to say the subject ” allegedly “engaged in a gun fight” with a team of officers eradicating a marijuana garden at the site. According to reports it’s unknown whether the man who died had identification, but described him as “approximately in his 20s.”Three deputies on the team shot at the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the release, the man was shot by law enforcement officers and pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile another team of Marijuana Eradicators (Clad in Camo, and armed with fully-automatic weapons) entered another marijuana garden (presumably on private property), where, according to official reports (which are usually white washed), ” law enforcement officers entered another marijuana garden and encountered four subjects with guns. The subjects fired on officer s and the officers returned fire. The subjects ran away and their condition is unknown”, according to the release.

Mendocino Sheriff Tom Allman didn’t release the names of the officers involved and according to the MCSO, no officers were injured, in what appears to be a very violent and aggressive last campaign by Northern California Law Enforcement, to eradicate the last Illegal Marijuana Gardens before California voters pass Prop 19.

The Mendocino County district Attorney’s Office and the state Department of Justice will lead another (white wash) investigation.

Angel Farias Hernandez,

The MCSO press release said names of the officers involved would not be released today, and as with the name of the Officer who killed Angel Farias Hernandez, the  24 year old kid and father of two,   in the Mendocino National Forest, three weeks back,  we doubt the names will be released till the end of harvest.
