Find the Commonality

Spate Of Oxnard Violence Claims Sixth Life

KVTA News Friday April 14, 2017

Oxnard police say the man who was shot last weekend on King Street near Wooley Road has died.
They say that 32-year-old Angel Ortiz Ramirez of Oxnard was gunned down Saturday night and was pronounced dead from his wounds several days later at VCMC.
Police say Ortiz was the father of four young children and was involved in the community as a Little League and youth basketball coach.
Major Crimes detectives are still trying to determine who killed Ortiz and why.
This is Oxnard's sixth homicide of the year and continues a rash of violent activity that has occurred within the city the last thirty (30) days.
● On March 13th, 44-year old Raul Mandujano was shot and killed in the 100 block of Dolores Court.
● On March 27th, 17-year old Luis Rodriguez was shot and killed while he rode his skateboard in the 400 block of N. Bonita Avenue.
● On April 12th, 22-year old Andres Rocha was shot and killed while riding his bicycle in the area of Featherstone Street and San Gorgonio Avenue.
Detectives say some of the killings are probably related and some are probably tied to gangs.
Police say they've also seen an increase in carjackings, some involving teenage suspects.
They plan to increase the number of officers on the street in areas where many of these crimes have happened and they're asking for community help in the effort to stem the tide of violence in the city.

Only a dozen miles from some of the "safest" cities in the nation.

Gov. Jerry Brown, in a spring tradition timed to the Easter renewal, extended pardons Saturday to three people who served in the U.S. military but were deported to Mexico after completing sentences for various crimes.

Brown said the former service members were honorably discharged and promised citizenship for their service but nonetheless were deported.

hmmmm..trying to spot some "common denominator" amongst those alleged criminals names... nope..coming up empty.

Mike said...

sorry..those were the victims names I guess..

Lawyerliz said...

I know, I know! They are all Cubans.

Mike said...

Lawyerliz said...

I think United is the safest airline to avoid double booking.. you just say no, loudly but politely and they wouldn't dare.kick you off.

They call themselves the Garden Gang and their tat is a lawnmower.

Peeked at Mudfilledecon. Sumluk is convinced the Russians interefered ith the election in Trump's favor and no one disagreed. The snake has swallowed its tail.

Rob Dawg said...

The crappy thing is that for insurance reasons the damn lawyers make me bring a pilot with me in the right seat. First world problems.

Mike said...

the Russians interfered the election in Trump's favor

well..if so..not looking like a smart move on their part..now is it??

Rob Dawg said...

Pretty smart considering they've got the entire left in this country dancing to their tune. And they didn't have to do a thing.

Mike said...

Has sumluk ever considered the possibility that..yes.the Russians tried to influence the election...but no...Trump had nothing to do with it??

That seems like the most likely scenario to me...

Rob Dawg said...

Until I get even a single detail on what was done I'm going to classify Russia/election as fake news. Did they flip any bits? Stuff absentee ballots? Divert district boxes? Steal vote here signs? All I hear is "tried to interfere" which is sloganeering.

Walt Tucker said...

Did the Russians hack any emails; fed or sell the information to the Trump campaign? Plot, plan or coordinate, establish or help establish fake news sites that besmirch Hillary Clinton or helped the Trump campaign? Did they discuss possible business deals in conjunction with any of these activities?

Yes,the American people deserve an answer

Rob Dawg said...

Kinda wondering what the penalty for setting up a fake news site would be for anyone.

Walt Tucker said...

I think you or I can do it but the Russian government can't do it if it interferes with an American election. If there was money or quid pro quo involved, what crime would that be?

Rob Dawg said...

I wonder if the anti-trump protesters dressed in black kicking the pro-trump marcher on the ground wearing an American flag theme outfit considered the optics of their actions.

Rob Dawg said...

What happen to this person?

One comment on the Oxnard killings.

http://wgntv.com/2017/03/30/3-shot-and-killed-on-chicagos-south-side/

Do the killing sprees seem similar?

I think I read that several gangs are operating nationally.

Mike said...

Good Morning!

Happy Easter, what time is the turtle egg hunt?

Nuke boys bottle rocket went boom. I bet no action will be taken.

Elizabeth Merceret said...

Hey Cinco.

Elizabeth Merceret said...

Not turtle egg season.
He really shot something off?

LBD said...

It blew up on the launch. Leaves a lot to interpretation and I bet no action will be taken at this time. Best move IMO.

Elizabeth Merceret said...

Oh, it blew up. Maybe we helped. Happy Easter.😑😐

Elizabeth Merceret said...
