Last month, we once again saw horrific attacks on law enforcement, this time in California. On October 5, LASD Sergeant Steve Owen was murdered while responding to a burglary-in-progress call. Just three days later, two officers from Palm Springs P.D. were murdered in cold blood while assisting at a family disturbance call. Officers Jose Gilbert “Gil” Vega and Lesley Zerebny were gunned down by a deranged gang member who was intent on killing police officers. On October 19, Deputy Jack Hopkins was shot and killed responding to a domestic disturbance call.
