I know there's a lot of negative press regarding law enforcement (some of it earned) but this kind of stuff happens all too frequently and it gets very little attention from the news or the public.

He had 21 years on the force and was shot and killed by a dirt bag being investigated as part of a car theft ring. Two California Highway Patrol Officers were also shot but are thankfully going to survive.


Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Robert “Bob” French was killed Wednesday afternoon following an officer-involved shooting in Sacramento County, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputy French, a 21-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department, died on the way to the hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound at the Ramada Inn Hotel, located at 2600 Auburn Boulevard.

The deputy performed a variety of tasks in recent years, but most recently he was assigned to north patrol as a patrol officer and training officer.

Deputy French is survived by his girlfriend, children and grandchildren.

“Words are not really going to make an appropriate illustration of him as a man or his career,” Sheriff Scott Jones said of Deputy French.

Two California Highway Patrol officers also sustained gunshot wounds during the officer-involved shooting Wednesday but are now in stable condition and expected to survive, according to authorities.

We are currently gathering information as fast as possible to provide updated conditions on the two CHP officers moving forward.

The Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff’s Association has established a memorial fund for Deputy French. Checks made out to “Robert French Memorial Fund” may be sent to 2843 Manlove Road, Sacramento, CA 95826. Beginning Thursday, donations may be made online at Cahpcu.org.
Rest in Peace

California has swung so far to the left in how we treat these individuals its crazy.

Like it or not some of these individuals only understand and respond to violence and in prison we are very limited in how we can deal with them. Its frustrating especially when the current climate encourages coddling and catering to them. As an example, we used to be able to segregate the really hard core gang members in the SHU (Security Housing Units) which curtailed their influence in the system. However, due to a court case (filed on behalf of the inmates) we are no longer able to do this to the extent we previously could - it was cruel and unusual. Now, we've got hard core gang leaders once again entering the general population and spreading their love and happiness - hold on to your hats. On the flip side, one was released after over 20 years in the SHU and was stabbed to death within 3 days.

We've currently got a lot of inmates getting out early due to various legislative acts that have passed. I'm just waiting for something really horrible to happen to some poor innocent citizen and/or their family. That's usually what it takes for the pendulum to swing the other way.

Scumbag should get the gas chamber; too bad California doesn't have the guts to execute murderers any more.
Lets hope he gets convicted of murder. It is California after all.

RIP Deputy Robert French. YOu gave the ultimate sacrifice so that others could be safe.

Terrible. I hope one of the inmates that Gov Brown let's out, kills him one day. That'd be fine.
