  1. I find it so funny that the poster puts "WANTED" in the header, when all this person is being posted for is a pperson of intrest. Never seems to amaze me how people blow things up!

  2. Ok, so should we use "sought" instead of "wanted", would that make it more politically correct for you?

  3. It's not so much a matter of being PC as it is a matter of conveying the correct message. "Wanted in connection with..." and "person of interest" communicate very different messages.

    Nevertheless, I hope the police are able to track him down.

  4. Just an update: Elias Urquiza Contreras, the kid whom the Sheriff says is wanted is now on the lam, having fled to Mexico. The NC Times says that Contreras borrowed someone's car just a day before the killings, and that the car was later found at the Mexican border.

    So much for just being a "person of interest".

    Read the NC Times article here...

  5. Wow! ar'nt we special now! Time to start that new job as a detective...Mr. Joe Citizen!

  6. Where are you whiny ass comments now Mr. Anonymous. See, people like you are the problem with our Country. You are more concerned with offending criminals and THEIR rights than you are with the Victims. The headline should read: WANTED: SCUMBAG FOR QUESTIONING IN DOUBLE MURDER

  7. To the guy above me:

    1. You also posted as "anonymous."

    2. You need to brush up on your English skills. Right now, you sound like a hick.

  8. The kid's a scumbag and you stick up for him because??? You're probably a criminal yourself which explains your offense to this post.

  9. Does anyone know this kid? Did he go to Paloma? What about his parents???

  10. No body cares about this dirtbag! I am all for putting dirty criminals in jail. I just find it funny to find you joe citizen's so interested in crime in your neighborhoods. It's like a bunch of wannabe cops in here. You are all so interested in finding these killers and dealers but the first time you get a ticket from a cop your the ones putting BS posts on this site about how horrible the police are and how you all cant stand law enforcement. Look at these forum topics....Sheriff, Police, College Police in Menifee and how they all are so bad an horrible.

    You all dont know the first thing about being a cop but you are all so quick to jump on the band wagon and judge law enforcement and then turn around and show your support in a different fourm rgearding putting some crap bag in jail.

    Hipocrits! As for Mr. know it all, when is the last time you pushed a black and white and shagged calls in a dangerous job such as law enforcement, but your so quick to post a POSER line about how you are glad this kid is in jail......Sad!

  11. Sounds like you have some deep rooted issues!!!

  12. To Mr. Anonymous with the long post:

    I'm saddened to see you have become so jaded toward the general population. I, for one, have a great appreciation for the role of our law enforcement officers. I have several family members and friends in the force. However, I have great reservations as to your ability to appropriately perform your duty when you publicly display such hatred toward the unsworn masses. I noticed that the Menifee Police cars don't have "To protect and serve" on the side. I guess it's fitting.

  13. Menifee Police cars? Menifee does'nt even have police Mr. Know it all MATTSX!

    Just goes to show how much you all know. What police car were you looking at? Too funny.

    "Great reservations about me performing my duty!" Does my blog even say anything about me being a cop?

    Look how lame your thoughts are. Do us all afavor and don't think out loud anymore!

  14. Dude, chill out and see if you can't get that chip off your shoulder (or is it "you're" shoulder?)

  15. You are more offended by a mispelled word than you are by some young killer out on the loose in our city. I, for one, do not like the police in general. Most are good, some are bad. I don't see how wanting a killer locked up makes anyone a POSER cop. You sound really immature. You have no clue what anyone else on here has done in their life as we don't know what you have done.

    MATTSX: I may sound like a hick, I am more like tattooed biker trash. You are a keyboard commando and Mommy needs to put you over her knee.

  16. Keyboard commando... haha, that's funny!

    And of course I was referring to the MSJC College Police who think they are (and so many seem to accept as) the Menifee Police.

  17. Menifee Police...accept as? what? What are you talking about, you pop-belley pig biker! Stay out of the garage, you've benn cooking too much crystal cake brother.

    Amazing how everyone thinks in got one guy who calls concerned citizen's posers and another questioning someones ability to carry out their job. Amazing...I could think of better stuff to talk about.

    There is no menifee police and the only law enforcement we have here is the MSJC police and they are doing a fine job, but they sure don't have the resources allotted to them to be a fully operational PD to police the entire Menifee area. Let's face it, they can't do it without more money or support.

    Besides how did this posting become the topic of public safety to begin with, was'nt it about some killer in Sun City. You guys crack me up!

  18. Yeah, let's just call each other names. What's the problem with trying to have an honest discussion about the issues in our town? Why do we have to resort to getting personally insulted and calling names? At least have the integrity to sign your name to what you say.

  19. Mattsx - good question. reading through the posts I find that you started with the name calling: Hick ring a bell.

    As far as the guy just above you goes, you forget your medicine again?

  20. wrong. i didn't say he IS a hick, i said he SOUNDED like one. That's different. And then Anonymous below me called me a criminal. Read more carefully.

  21. I am a retired police officer and I sent some valid info yesterday regarding why todays officers use a term such as "a person of interest". This site chose not to print it after review.
    My suspicions tell me that if anyone responds with common sense and proper spelling and grammer you're not interested in what they have to say. I hope this passes muster, I'll be watching one more time!

  22. Bill -

    I think you can probably publish it here. I don't know if there are length requirements, but I, for one, would be interested to see what info you have to contribute.

  23. Bill, I'm not sure I remember seeing your e-mail regarding why police use "person of interest". I didn't specifically reject it, just don't remember getting it. But this article would be a great place to post it as a comment.

  24. POSERS! Unbelievable. How about a round of golf together and lets start a neighborhood watch, because we all think we live in an upscale neighborhood like Irvine, Citrus Heights, La Jolla or Carlsbad! My god people, your all in Menifee-The hottest, dirtiest place on the planet. You are all surronded by Lake Elsinore, Perris, Hemet, San Jacinto and Canyon Lake. Every dirtbag and his brother lives in Menifee and if they don't they are burglarizing your home or stealing your car.

    It's like 120 degrees everyday there and you all think your precious city needs to incorporate too! OMG! Wake up your city will be the next Lake Elsinore or Perris!

    As for police, don't even get me started, more like lack of and this college PD is doing a better job than the normal police that work there after reading some of these posts, that's pretty sad!


  25. Many people don't really know when a "SUSPECT" must be admonished of his/her Miranda rights. There are three conditions that MUST be present before a person MUST be admonished.

    No. 1 The SUSPECT must be in some form of custody.

    No. 2 The investigation MUST be narrowed to that SUSPECT.

    No. 3 The officer MUST be questioning or going to question that SUSPECT r.e. a certain crime.

    These are the elements of the Miranda law and no other conditions demand it. Some officers, due to improper training, television etc., are not aware of this, I hope not many. If an officer has what he/she considers a SUSPECT and admonishes them right away, they have
    lost the ability to say ANYTHING to this SUSPECT, possibly losing valuable slip-ups by them.

    Due to the very fact that we realize many of todays officers may not be aware of these three
    mandates, it has become fasionable to refer to these folks as "PERSONS OF INTEREST".

    I must tell you that if ANY of the three conditions are absent, no admonishment is needed. So, by using this" PERSON OF INTEREST" term, you may leave an important part of professional interrigation to detectives who have special abilities. Believe me, they know when a "PERSON of INTEREST" becomes a" SUSPECT", before submitting the crime and arrest
    reports to the prosecutor. THEY fill in the blanks that require admonishment and do it at
    an advantagous time to get the most from the SUSPECT and still have a good case to submit.
    THANK YOU for this forum. Bill
