Way to go Hemet PD. Thanks for bringing awareness to what we wouldn’t otherwise know since not everything is reported about this town in the news! Hemet has become the town to leave and never return. I can’t wait for that day to become my reality. I know crime is everywhere especially if you move to a city, but there are some great spots one can go! Research is key!

It is unfortunate that in four minutes the police who we know lacks manpower, thanks to reduced operating budgets, couldn’t make it in time to bust these little punks. My guess is that local officers on duty were and are spread pretty thin. I am sorry for the business owner.

Reply to Tracie Reopelle: So why are we being taxed so much more and not receiving better service?

Reply to Johnny Chaney: Too much government. Bureaucracy. Not enough of our taxes trickle down to needed services. They land in general funds and often are misappropriated from that fund.

Suspect is lucky to be in custody and not in a body bag. Great job HPD. These are the split second decisions these officers have to make every day! Suspect is shooting at officers, yet he lives another day thanks to the Hemet PD and the training they have to make the call to not shoot this guy several times and end the standoff. #backtheblue.
