Thanks, Officers!

and now our tax dollars will provide him with medical care and the costs of his incarceration, public defender, etc. I say, drive him out to the desert, kick him out of the car and let him fend for himself.

City Girl March 28, 2016 at 5:04 PM

Oh darn… Sucks for him!

Bring back the firing squad or public hangings!!

Mr. Pink March 28, 2016 at 5:21 PM

Bummer that they didn’t hit any vital organs; like his stupid, ugly face.

Independent March 28, 2016 at 5:23 PM

As much as you want this scumbag dead (if he did the alleged crimes) I sure hope the shooting that injured him was justified. We can’t deny due process to people no matter how much a scumbag. So hopefully the circumstances of this OIS is legit and not something like the cop recognizing him and using discretion to shoot without an actual deadly threat being undeniably present.
“I thought there might be a deadly threat that could come” isn’t good enough

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 5:23 PM

The state of Utah reinstated the firing squad!!!

Now Fairfield residents will be on the hook for the resulting lawsuit if he croaks.

…Waitaminute….No chants of Black Lives Matter? Where is the protest?

BirdCrap March 28, 2016 at 5:46 PM

Yes! Justice finally is served!!!! One scum down, many more to go…..

BirdCrap March 28, 2016 at 5:48 PM

Waiting for the bleeding hearts around here to start feeling sorry for this perp.

Wait for it….Wait for it….

Mister Wister March 28, 2016 at 5:49 PM

The cops bagged themselves a wascally wabbit.

That's Mr Pugnacious to you March 28, 2016 at 5:57 PM

Damnit, I wanted that $1.1 million reward!

Good job FPD.

Not done yet... March 28, 2016 at 5:59 PM

Now that he is laid up lets hope that in the kids best interest the authorities take a look at the mom and her old man for fostering this type of environment that allowed this to happen in the first place. While I wouldn’t normally say that a kid should be apart from their parents, maybe this is an exception. Gotta be something done to separate this child from the environment that lead to his injury, it wasn’t random. Would hate to see worse happen next time.

That's Mr Pugnacious to you March 28, 2016 at 6:03 PM

KTVU said someone tipped of FPD, they responded, 8 minutes later this giant douche was shot by da popo.

Mr. Jarrad’s actions were reprehensible and should result in the loss of his privilege of living in a free and just society.


Cindy March 28, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Thank you Lord!

Maybe March 28, 2016 at 6:40 PM

So glad he was caught. Only wish the cops were better shots or used a lot more ammo.

@TK March 28, 2016 at 6:59 PM

a “free and just society”
What society are you living in? Can I come too?

In the 60s March 28, 2016 at 6:59 PM

Is he dead yet?

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 7:41 PM

A eye for an eye

THE ANIMAL March 28, 2016 at 7:42 PM

Suspect would not halt so I fired a warning shot into the base of his skull ……………….

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 7:44 PM

Contra costa county
Please step in with CPS
Take the children and put them in
A better environment so they don’t
Grow up duplicating the environment
They become accustomed too!
A fruit never falls far from a tree!
Kids are a product of their environment!

That’s great news! Hopefully he develops an infection and his white blood cell count goes up…

Bob the builder March 28, 2016 at 8:07 PM

Praying he doesn’t make it, this world has enough SCUM

TheGhetto March 28, 2016 at 8:10 PM

Thank goodness! One more bullet please.

Linda March 28, 2016 at 8:22 PM

Hope he dies. One less thug to deal with in court.

PO'd March 28, 2016 at 8:28 PM

Hope he bleeds out on the slab. Seems to be a waste of resources to keep him alive.

Solano sufferer March 28, 2016 at 8:30 PM

I called 911 on a green minivan driving around our neighborhood yelling and threatening my two year old son and I. This was at 6 pm tonight. I was told I was the 7th caller. Councidence?

Joe March 28, 2016 at 8:49 PM

While my first instinct is to join in with shouts out to the Fairfield Police, have a bunch of pizzas sent to their HQ or whatever, I think we need to look at this from their side. While this is good news for OUR community, this was not a happy event for THEIR community. Their city had to be terrorized by a cop gunning someone down on a busy street. The legal processing of this event is going to cost THEIR city money. The shooting officer might actually not feel to great about the whole thing.

So while I join those who want to give heartfelt thanks to Fairfield for taking care of our problem, I think we should also be APOLOGIZING to Fairfield for sending such an unsavory native son as a civic ambassador.

FED UP March 28, 2016 at 8:51 PM

I hope he croaks.

TIFOKCIS March 28, 2016 at 9:18 PM

Thank God he looks white or we’d never hear the end of him being shot down in cold blood by the evil police………………evil white police.

@ Joe#33
Get over yourself.

Vigilante Justice March 28, 2016 at 11:19 PM

If he survives take him out back and “hang em high”. When you shoot a child, your ticket to hell should be immediately punched.

Mary March 28, 2016 at 11:41 PM

You people are so mean. This young misguided young man deserves our mercy and understanding. He probably had a rough life. Have a heart!

praying925 March 29, 2016 at 6:53 AM

Law enforcement do not take someone harming a child lightly in any way shape or form period especially someone which a criminal record.
Im sure the officer intended to kill with his one and only shot at this man which i would say he had every right to use lethal Force this man was considered armed and dangerous period.
I sure cant wait to stop hearing about this 8 year old is doing great and this man is in police custody END OF STORY !!!!
To The people talking about CPS I sure hope your a close family member/friend that has your FACTS straight.
Its easy to assume sooooo im assuming all you #teamCPS have your damn Facts straight !!!!!!!

Lovthissite March 29, 2016 at 7:20 AM

I like most of the comments this scum is gone finally he proble has had more then 3 strikes but are system sucks, that poor baby it always take tragedy for something to be done, then we have all these nut jobs protesting everything are system are people are all mental or they have nothing better to do we need to fight for the things that matter everyone needs to wake Up ( hopefully no one feels sorry for this scum even his friends and family)

ohboy! March 29, 2016 at 6:35 PM

taken from a comment on his profile picture on facebook. Being “on the run” i guess is something he has previously concerned with. What a loser. Playing with a loaded gun and around children. I hope the children are removed from the house where the parents would let something like that happen.
