Sheriff Donny Youngblood Should Be Held Accountable Charles GarciaJun 12, 2013 Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood is a disgrace to all the good men and women who wear the law enforcement uniform. I believe he should be held criminally negligent, by his total failure of leadership, in the brutal deaths of Jose Lucero and David Silva. Four Kern County Sheriff deputies went to Jose Lucero's home on December 18, 2010, in response to repeated 911 calls from Jose claiming that a female friend was being assaulted in Lancaster. Jose, a recovering drug addict who struggled with mental health issues, was living at the home of his elderly parents, Florencio and Lilia Lucero. Prior to that day, reports indicated he was on the road to recovery, but on that day he had relapsed. The deputies decided to take Jose Lucero into custody for abuse of the 911 system, and his elderly parents witnessed the entire incident. How did four deputies take down this unarmed man? Step one, pepper spray. Pepper spray causes intense pai ...

Here we go again, more scum bag murderers with a badge. Clayton Plake reports on the death of a Bakersfield man following a beating at the hands of sheriff's deputies--and the subsequent attempts to cover up this crime. May 21, 2013 David Silva posing with three of his four children in a family photo David Silva, a resident of Bakersfield, Calif., and father of four, died on May 8 at a local hospital--the victim of a savage police beating. Although the coroner's report released the following Friday defers judgment on the ultimate cause of death, multiple eyewitness have come forward to say they saw law enforcement personnel beat Silva until he was unconscious and on the edge of death. The identities of the officers involved have not been released. As this article was being written, they were reportedly on paid administrative leave. Statements released by Kern County Sheriff Don Youngblood and Spokesperson Ray Pruitt are short and devoid of detail. But both the Kern County Sheriff's Department (KCSD) and C ...

Kern County Sheriff's beat a drunk dude to death. A Lieutenant from Torrance must have gotten transferred up River. Pieces of work, I tell ya. Pieces of work.
"Our credibility is at stake here," Kern County Sheriff tells in wake of deadly police beating:
do not normally align myself with a "cause" but im reaching out to every person I know for this. Im asking my fan base in its entirety: friends, family, and even enemies to put aside your differences and help me to help this family in every way that I can. One voice makes a difference, and there are many voices speaking against the tyranny of the Kern County Sheriff's Department. Until justice is served, I am donating 100% of the money I receive from my music to this family, every dime from music downloads I will personally deliver to this family in person. Please help me aide this family, they need all the support they can get! Thank you.
I wish neighbor's party-goers would stop turning their music back up after i go over and ask that they turn it down. I waited until after 10:30pm to ask the first time, 11:15pm the second. Next time I'm going to have the Kern County Sheriff's Deputy kindly ask on my behalf. I don't want to be a jerk, but geez- I've went over twice myself and asked. My bedroom window butts up right next to their back yard (where the music is). My kids and wife are trying to sleep. Have a little respect, right?
Still more questions have been raised about the death of a suspect in Kern County Sheriff's Office custody. A witness to the incident asked why he was arrested hours after talking to a reporter, and a family questioned the way their cellphone video of the incident was seized.
