Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting news conference, live stream


ANOTHER FIVE JOINED OVER THE WEEKEND. WE TAKE YOU TO GILROY, CALIFORNIA, TO THAT POLICE PRESSER. >>>OFFICIALS IN THE CITY OF GILROY, REGARDING THIS EVENT, FIRST TO SPEAK WILL BE MAYOR ROLAND VELASCO FROM THE CITY OF GILROY. >>THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE THIS MORNING. ONE OF MY GREATEST HONORS IN LIFE WAS BEING ELECTED MAYOR OF THIS GREAT COMMUNITY AND I CAN TELL YOU THE PEOPLE OF GILROY ARE STRONG, RESILIENT. DURING THE COURSE OF THIS INVESTIGATION, AS LAW ENFORCEMENT CONTINUES TO RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATE, THE GILROY COMMUNITY WILL MOURN BUT WE WILL GET THROUGH IT. ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY, AND THE GILROY CITY COUNCIL, I’M SPEAKING TO YOU TODAY TO PROVIDE A BRIEF UPDATE ON WHERE WE ARE AT. LATER, ON THE AGENDA, YOU WILL GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM OUR PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL. AS YOU KNOW, YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, THE CITY OF GILROY ENDURED A TRAGEDY THAT A VERY LONG NIGHT CANNOT ERASE. MASKED GUN VIOLENCE IS AN EPIDEMIC IN THE UNITED STATES AND ONE NEVER IMAGINES SUCH A THING COULD HAPPEN HERE IN OUR BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY. IT’S BEYOND SAD TO SEE WONDERFUL AND CHARITABLE EVENTS LIKE THE GILROY GARLIC FESTIVAL, THAT DONATES TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EACH YEAR TO LOCAL NONPROFITS — TO HAVE AN EVENT LIKE THIS HAPPEN. AS I SAID BEFORE, WE ARE RESILIENT AND WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS. THIS MORNING, OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILIES OF THOSE INJURED AND KILLED IN THE SENSELESS SHOOTING AND WE STAND WITH YOU AND WE WILL BE PROVIDING WHATEVER ASSISTANCE WE CAN IN THE DAYS AND WEEKS AHEAD. THIS MORNING, AS WE LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT OCCURRED YESTERDAY, I WISH TO COMMEND THE BRAVERY OF OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL. IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHAOTIC SITUATION, THEY ACTED QUICKLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. THEY ENGAGED THE SHOOTER AND ENDED THE THREAT BEFORE MORE PEOPLE COULD BE INJURED OR KILLED. THE CHIEF WILL TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT. IT TAKES REMARKABLE BRAVERY TO RUN TO A SHOOTING WHEN THE NATURAL REACTION FOR ALL OF US IS TO RUN AWAY. WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO UNDOUBTEDLY SAVED MANY LIVES BY PUTTING THEIR OWN LIVES IN DANGER. NOW, I ALSO WANT TO MENTION OUR FANTASTIC FIRE DEPARTMENT. I HAPPENED TO BE IN THE TRIAGE AREA WHEN THE VICTIMS STARTED TO COME IN. I CAN TELL YOU THAT OUR FIRE PERSONNEL, PARAMEDICS, EMTs, WERE THERE QUICKLY TRIAGING AND PRIORITIZING AND STABILIZING EACH OF THE PATIENT’S AND THEN GETTING THEM READY TO TRANSPORT OUT. TODAY AND OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, I, ALONG WITH THE GILROY CITY COUNCIL WILL BE MEETING AND WORKING WITH COMMUNITY LEADERS TO ASSESS THE SITUATION WE NOW FACE IN GILROY IN THE WAKE OF THIS SHOOTING. WE INTEND TO COME OUT OF THIS HORRIBLE EVENT IN A STRONGER AND OBVIOUSLY A CLOSER COMMUNITY. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE AND LET ME TURN IT BACK OVER. >>THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR AND NEXT TO SPEAK WILL BE THE FIRE CHIEF. >>AS THE MAYOR SAID, I’D LIKE TO THANK OUR FIREFIGHTERS FOR RESPONDING HEROICALLY TO THIS EVENT. THIS IS SOMETHING WE’VE TRAINED FOR AND WE HAD AN ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING WITH OUR COLLEAGUES IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND WERE ACTUALLY PLANNING ANOTHER ONE BECAUSE ANOTHER EVENT WAS JUST NORTH OF US IN MORGAN HILL INVOLVING AN ACTIVE SHOOTER. LUCKILY, WE HAD SIX TOTAL FIRE DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL ON SCENE WHEN THE SHOOTING OCCURREDAND TWO WERE ON AN ENGINE IN THE PARK AND TWO ON BIKE TEAMS AND TWO IN AN AMBULANCE INSIDE THE PARK AND WE WERE ABLE TO RESPOND QUICKLY TO THE SITUATION WHEN THE SHOOTING OCCURRED. WE HAD 12 EMS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PERSONNEL ALSO ON SCENE AND THE EMT CONTRACT AND A PUBLIC AMBULANCE COMPANY, AS WELL. THE INITIAL DISPATCH OCCURRED AT 1742 AND WE SEND FOUR ENGINES AND WE ONLY HAVE THREE IN THE CITY OF GILROY, SO WE SENT ALL OF OUR RESOURCES AND OUR SOUTH COUNTY NEIGHBORS. TWO ADDITIONAL BATTALION CHIEFS REQUESTED 16 LOCAL MUTUAL AID ENGINES TO RESPOND HERE, AS WELL. OUR GILROY BATTALION CHIEF ASSUMED COMMAND AT 17:45 HOURS ALONG WITH THE FIRST ARRIVING FIRE ENGINE DISPATCHED FROM OUTSIDE THE GARLIC FESTIVAL EVENT. WE HAD A TOTAL OF SIX GROUND AMBULANCES AND TWO SUPERVISES FROM THE COUNTY AND WE HAD THREE AIR AMBULANCES AND WE DID A TOTAL OF 16 TRANSPORTS, 13 OF WHICH WERE DONE BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE EMS AGENCY AND THREE WERE AIR AMBULANCES AN EIGHT GROUND AMBULANCES. I WILL LEAVE IT TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO TALK ABOUT THE ACTUAL STATE OF THE DECEASED IN THE EVENT. THANK YOU. >>NEXT TO SPEAK TO YOU IS POLICE CHIEF, SCOT SMITHEE. >>I WILL REITERATE WHAT I SAID AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE LAST NIGHT AND I HAVE A FEW ADDITIONAL DETAILS AND THEN WE WILL PLAN AN ADDITIONAL UPDATE BECAUSE I PLAN TO HAVE MORE INFORMATION, NOW THAT DAYLIGHT IS HERE AND WE ARE GETTING FRESH RESOURCES IN AND WE WILL TRY TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER FOR LATER THIS AFTERNOON. WE’VE GOT THE DATE AND TIME ESTABLISHED ALREADY AND AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, THE GILROY GARLIC FESTIVAL IS AN EVENT WE PUT ON EVERY YEAR AND WE TYPICALLY HOST BETWEEN 80 AND 1000 — 100,000 PEOPLE TO OUR FESTIVAL. IT TAKES SEVERAL THOUSAND PER DAY VOLUNTEERING TO MAKE THE FESTIVAL WORK. AT THE TIME THAT THE INCIDENT OCCURRED, IT WAS NEAR THE END OF THE FINAL DAY, IT WAS SUNDAY AND THERE WERE QUESTIONS THAT WERE ASKED REGARDING THE SECURITY AND THE WAY THAT WE MANAGE AND MONITOR IT FROM A LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PUBLIC SAFETY PERSPECTIVE, IS THAT WE HAVE POLICE PERSONNEL ON SITE THE ENTIRE TIME OF THE FESTIVAL AND WOULD ACTUALLY CREATE A POLICE COMPOUND WITH A COMMAND CENTER, A BOOKING AREA AND ALL THE THINGS YOU WOULD NEED TO RUN A MAJOR OPERATION LIKE THIS. THE OFFICERS ARE DEPLOYED THROUGHOUT THE PARK AND ASSIGNED TO DIFFERENT REGIONS AND THEY ARE SPREAD OUT WITH OFFICERS NOT ALL IN ONE SPOT. WHEN THE CALL CAME IN, THE SHOTS BEING FIRED, THE CLOSEST TEAM OF OFFICERS RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY AND THEY WERE THERE AND ENGAGING THE SUSPECT IN LESS THAN ONE MINUTE. THE SUSPECT WAS ARMED WITH AN ASSAULT TYPE RIFLE. AS SOON AS HE SAW THE OFFICERS, HE ENGAGED THE OFFICERS AND FIRED AT THE OFFICERS WITH THAT RIFLE. THREE OFFICERS ENGAGED THE SUSPECT AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY WERE OUTGUNNED WITH THEIR HANDGUNS AGAINST A RIFLE, THOSE THREE OFFICERS WERE ABLE TO FATALLY WOUND THE SUSPECT AND THE EVENT ENDED VERY QUICKLY . OF COURSE, WE THEN HAD THE AFTERMATH OF DEALING WITH THE VICTIMS AND THE EMS SIDE OF THINGS. WE PUT OUT A CALL FOR HELP AND HAD OVER 20 AGENCIES. WE HAD FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY AND LOCAL AGENCIES FROM ALL OVER THAT RESPONDED WITH PEOPLE DOWN INTO OUR PARK. IT WAS JUST INCREDIBLE TO SEE COOPERATION AND HOW QUICKLY THEY PUT THIS TOGETHER AND RENDERED AID TO PEOPLE. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW PROUD I AM OF THE OFFICERS FOR ENGAGING THIS GUY AS QUICKLY AS THEY DID. WE HAD THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THERE IN A VERY SMALL AREA. IT COULD HAVE GONE SO MUCH WORSE SO FAST. I’M REALLY PROUD THAT THEY GOT THERE AS QUICKLY AS THEY DID AND THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL IN TAKING THE THREAT OUT OF THE EQUATION. WE DO HAVE THREE PEOPLE DECEASED, CONFIRMED DECEASED. WE HAVE ONE WHO IS A 6-YEAR- OLD. A 6-YEAR-OLD MALE VICTIM. WE ALSO HAD A 13-YEAR-OLD FEMALE VICTIM AND THEN WE HAD ANOTHER MALE VICTIM IN HIS 20s. WE DON’T HAVE A MOTIVE FOR THE SHOOTING, AS YET. WE DID HAVE REPORTS OF A POTENTIAL SECOND SUSPECT BUT WE DON’T HAVE ANY CONFIRMATION THAT ANY SECOND SUSPECT DID ANY SHOOTING, BUT WE CERTAINLY ARE INVESTIGATING ALL LEADS TO TRY TO DETERMINE WHO THAT POTENTIAL SECOND SUSPECT IS AND EXACTLY WHAT THAT PERSON’S ROLL WAS. WE FOUND OUT — SOME OF THE FEDERAL AGENCIES HELPING US — WE FOUND OUT THAT THE RIFLE THE SUSPECT USED WAS AN AK-47 TYPE ASSAULT RIFLE AND IT WAS PURCHASED LEGALLY IN THE STATE OF NEVADA ON JULY 9 OF THIS YEAR. THE REPORTS HAVE BEEN GOING OUT OF A POTENTIAL SUSPECT AND I WILL CONFIRM THAT THE SUSPECT IS THE PERSON THAT SEVERAL NEWS MEDIA HAVE BEEN INQUIRING ABOUT. SANTINO WILLIAM LEGAN LOGAN, 19 YEARS OLD AND I SAY THAT NAME WITH HESITATION BECAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE SOMEBODY LIKE THIS DESERVES THE NOTORIETY OR RECOGNITION BUT I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL WANT TO HAVE CONFIRMATION OF THAT. THE LAST THING I WILL SAY BEFORE I TURN IT OVER — I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE AGENCIES AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT CAME TO HELP. I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE, BUT THERE WAS A LOT AND WE PUT OUT THE CALL FOR HELP AND THEY CAME. IT’S SUCH A LARGE CRIME SCENE AND THE FBI HAS COME IN AND OFFERED ASSISTANCE AND WE HAVE ACCEPTED THAT ASSISTANCE BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OF THE AREA THAT WE NEED TO COVER. SO, BEFORE WE OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS, I’M GOING TO HAVE THEM COME AND TALK ABOUT THEIR ROLE IN HOW THEY ARE HELPING WITH THE CASE AND THEN I WILL COME BACK UP. >>NEXT TO SPEAK WITH YOU, DEPUTY SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE OF THE FBI, CRAIG FAIR. >>THANK YOU. I’M THE DEPUTY SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE OF THE SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION OF THE FBI AND FIRST OFF, I’D LIKE TO EXPRESS MY CONDOLENCES TO THE CITY OF GILROY INTO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND VICTIMS OF THIS ABSOLUTELY HEINOUS ACT. THE FBI’S PRINCIPAL ROLE IS ASSISTING THE CITY AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT OF GILROY IN THE INVESTIGATION. OUR PREEMINENT AND PRINCIPAL CONCERN AT THIS POINT IS MOTIVATION MOTIVATION, IDEOLOGICAL LEANINGS AND IF HE WAS AFFILIATED WITH ANYONE OR ANY GROUP. IT STILL HAS TO BE RULED OUT AND DETERMINED, AT THIS POINT. WE ARE SUPPORTING THE GILROY POLICE DEPARTMENT IN MAKING THOSE DETERMINATIONS. OUR EVIDENCE RECOVERY TEAM, A SIZABLE TEAM, 30 INDIVIDUALS OUT THERE RIGHT NOW COLLECTING EVIDENCE AND AS WE FIND EVIDENCE , WE ARE DETERMINING THAT THE CRIME SCENE IS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THAN WHAT WE ORIGINALLY THOUGHT AND AMOUNTS TO MANY, MANY ACRES. WE APPRECIATE THE PUBLIC’S PATIENCE AS WE PROCESS THIS. IT’S GONE VERY SLOWLY AND SHOULD WE USE THIS EVIDENCE IN PROSECUTIONS LATER ON. I LIKE TO THINK THE FIRST RESPONDERS. AS THE MAYOR CITED IN THEIR HEROISM, THE FBI PERSONNEL WHO WORKED TIRELESSLY THROUGHOUT THE EVENING, WILL DO SO FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AND OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE GILROY POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THE CITY OF GILROY AS WE MOVE THROUGH THIS CRISIS AND MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC, WHO ARE OFFERING CONTINUING TIPS, PHOTOS AND ASSISTING WITH THE INVESTIGATION, THANK YOU. >>WE WILL NOW TAKE A FEW QUESTIONS AND I ASK THAT YOU DIRECT YOUR QUESTIONS TO ME AND WE WILL PUT THEM TO THE CORRECT PERSON. THANK YOU TALKED ABOUT THE POTENTIAL OF ANOTHER SUSPECT. DO YOU BELIEVE THERE IS SOMEBODY ELSE OUT THERE? IS IT POSSIBLE IT WAS ERRONEOUS AND THEY THOUGHT THEY SAW SOMEBODY? >>YOU KNOW, WE REALLY DON’T KNOW. WE’VE GOT MULTIPLE REPORTS. THERE MAY HAVE BEEN ANOTHER PERSON WHERE THEY RAN THIS WAY OR THAT WAY AND DIFFERENT PEOPLE GAVE DIFFERENT VERSIONS AND WE DON’T KNOW, AT THIS POINT. >>YOU BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE VICTIMS, AT THIS POINT? >>WE ARE NOT IDENTIFYING THE VICTIMS, AT THIS POINT. TYPICALLY, THAT IS SOMETHING WE LEAVE UP TO THE COUNTY CORONER’S OFFICE TO MAKE SURE THE NOTIFICATIONS ARE DONE BEFORE THAT IS RELEASED. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>SO, THE ANSWER TO THE FIRST QUESTION IS — THERE ABSOLUTELY WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE BLOODSHED, I BELIEVE. THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THAT SMALL AREA THEY WERE IN — IT’S VERY, VERY FORTUNATE THEY WERE ABLE TO ENGAGE HIM AS QUICKLY AS THEY DID IN THE SECOND PART OF THE QUESTION IS, OUR OFFICERS DO WEAR BODY CAMERAS. AT THE MOMENT THIS HAPPENED, WHO HAD THEM ON — I DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION, BUT WE WILL GET THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD IN THE INVESTIGATION. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>THERE’S A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE INVESTIGATION AND WE HAVE PARTNERS FROM ALL DIFFERENT AGENCIES. WHETHER IT’S INFORMATION CONCERNING THE SUSPECT OR INFORMATION CONCERNING THE POTENTIAL SECOND PERSON, THERE IS A VERY, VERY LARGE CRIME SCENE THAT NEEDS TO BE PROCESSED DILIGENTLY AND THERE’S ALL KINDS OF BACKGROUND INFORMATION WE NEED TO PROCESS. IT’S GOING TO BE A VERY PROLONGED AND COMPLICATED PROCESS FOR US. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>I’M NOT COMFORTABLE, AT THIS POINT, BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH OF A DETAIL OF THAT LEVEL OF BRIEFING TO COMMENT ON THAT AND I MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO THAT LATER TODAY. >>ONE>>I AM NOT READY TO COMMENT ON THAT, YET. I DON’T HAVE THAT LEVEL OF DETAIL, EITHER. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>AS FAR AS HIS LOCAL BACKGROUND, AGAIN, I’M NOT READY TO COMMENT ON THAT. IT’S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT HE IS THE ONE THAT PURCHASED THE WEAPON IN NEVADA. >>MOVED TO NEVADA. YOU CONFIRM IF HE IS LIVING IN NEVADA AND WHAT BROUGHT HIM THERE AND HOW LONG HE HAD BEEN IN CALIFORNIA BEFORE THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED? >>I DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION YET. I THINK HE WAS LIVING TO FAMILY MEMBERS BUT HE’S ORIGINALLY FROM GILROY. I DON’T YET KNOW HOW LONG HE WAS IN NEVADA OR HOW LONG HE’D BEEN BACK. >>ONE LAST QUESTION. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>CHIEF, WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADDRESS THAT? >>I WOULD SAY IT’S VERY SECURE WITH QUITE A LARGE NUMBER OF PERSONNEL OUT ESTABLISHING A PERIMETER AROUND THE AREA BECAUSE WE HAVE TO DO THE EVIDENCE PROCESSING. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WERE AT THE FESTIVAL THAT LITERALLY RAN AWAY AND LEFT THEIR BELONGINGS. WE HAVE VEHICLES AND THERE ARE FENDER TESTS AND WHATNOT. WE CAN’T ALLOW THEM BACK IN UNTIL WE’VE FINISHED WITH THE EVIDENCE PORTION PROCESSING OF THIS. SO, WE HAVE A TEAM SET UP TO HELP ASSIST THOSE PEOPLE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT UNTIL WE CAN GET THEM BACK. >>[ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>WELL, I THINK ANY TIME A LIFE IS LOST, IT’S A TRAGEDY. WHEN IT’S YOUNG PEOPLE, IT’S EVEN WORSE. YOU KNOW, IT’S VERY DIFFICULT. I DON’T KNOW WHAT, IF ANY ASSOCIATION THERE IS. IT SEEMS THIS WAS A RANDOM ACT BUT WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE WE COME TO A DETERMINATION OF WHAT HIS MOTIVATION WAS. >>THAT’S ALL THE QUESTIONS WE ARE GOING TO TAKE FOR NOW. I DID MAKE A COMMITMENT TO THE SPANISH SPEAKING STATIONS THAT I WOULD GIVE AN INTERVIEW OUTSIDE IN SPANISH. IF YOU FOLKS WOULD LIKE TO SET UP OUTSIDE, I WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS WE WILL TAKE LATER AND THERE WILL BE FUTURE CONFERENCES THAT WE PUT TOGETHER. THE TOTAL NUMBER, AS WE UNDERSTAND WAS 16. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. >>>WE’VE BEEN LISTENING TO POLICE AND OFFICIALS IN GILROY, CALIFORNIA, UPDATING US ON THE SHOOTING AT THE GARLIC FESTIVAL IN GILROY, CALIFORNIA. WE’VE LEARNED THAT TWO OF THE THREE THAT WERE KILLED WERE CHILDREN. ONE WAS A 6-YEAR-OLD BOY AND ANOTHER WAS A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL AND THE THIRD VICTIM WAS A MALE IN HIS 20s. POLICE ARE NOT RELEASING NAMES, AS OF YET AND WE’VE ALSO LEARNED THE SHOOTER WAS KILLED IN A SHOOTOUT WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT RESPONDED WITHIN MINUTES. THEY ENGAGED AND KILLED THE SHOOTER. WE LEARNED THAT THE TYPE OF WEAPON USED IN THE SHOOTING WAS DESCRIBED AS AN AK-47 TYPE ASSAULT RIFLE AND WAS PURCHASED LEGALLY IN NEVADA THIS YEAR AND POLICE BELIEVE THAT THE SHOOTER, CONFIRMED AS SANTINO WILLIAM LOGAN, 19, THEY BELIEVED HE PURCHASED THE WEAPON LEGALLY. WE WILL TAKE A QUICK BREAK AND WE WILL BE BACK WITH MUCH MORE NEWS WHEN WE RETURN. STAY WITH US. YOU ARE STREAMING CBSN.

  1. Aaaaand cue the bigoted comments about the shooter instead of dealing with the underlying problem with gun safety.

  2. MORE "SORRY FOR THE LOSS..
    FIRST RESPONDERS.." BLA. BLA. BLA
    WHAT ABOUT VEGAS?
    ALL COVER UPS THERE.
    FLA. NIGHT CLUB?? I SAW FAKE ACTORS..
    SANDY HOOK??
    WAAYYY TOO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS..
    THERE'S A PATTERN HERE..
    19 YRS.. NO SOCIAL MEDIA HISTORY.. MORE THAN ONE SHOOTER..
    SEARCHING HOUSE TO HOUSE..
    ????????????

  3. Nothing can communicate your pain more than killing yourself. Stop hurting people. If your life sucks so bad, kiss off!

  4. How does a 19 year old kid with his whole life ahead of him get the idea to shoot people like this?? Something is terribly wrong here!! The corruption and greed are destroying our country bit by bit.

  5. CBS is reporting that the gun was “bought legally in Nevada.” When has it been legal for CA residents to buy guns in other states and cross state lines???

    Also, here we see another mass shooting in a “gun free” area. Creating “gun-free” zones is putting a target on these areas for psychos. They only keep out good people with guns, the criminals will get their illegal guns in if they want.

  6. Have Dana Loesch and the NRA come out and said how happy the media is at the prospect of getting to report on yet another mass shooting?

  7. I'm glad that the officers got to him quickly, and thankful to all of them and all of the first responders.

    We need ways to make sure people can't get assault rifles into these places. I wonder how he snuck it in, because then maybe we could learn what to look for. With so many people coming to get into the gate at the same time, it would be time consuming to check all bags. But with things like this happening it would be worth it. It's not something we do, but we should probably check for weapons at the gate now.

    I'm sorry to all the victims and families and to the whole town.

  8. WAS THE SHOOTER WHITE OR HISPANIC?!?!?! Was this a Donald Trump inspired ethnic cleansing due to the high Latino population in attendance??? WOW you reporters suck I can't believe you didn't ask these glaringly obvious questions!

  9. My condolences to all family and friends of the victims and hopefully those who have suffered trauma will overcome it as well as could be expected. Love and peace to you.

  10. Very heartbreaking. My prayers go up for family and friends of the victims. The shooter has got to have some kind of mental issue and if so prayers go up him and his family and friends. If not then and he was just entertaining evil….maybe into witchcraft…left himself to be used by the devil.

  11. Pat yourself on the back conference !!! It's your job !!! Pat yourself later and tell us the facts !!! Other then that i like this police officer !!!

  12. I bet thats why all the gun control is necessary. Because while the actual people who need to carry guns cannot defend themselves and others, it gives the police pigs an opportunity to shove in everyones face how " brave " they are while they are slaughtering by the hundreds everyday. If people at this festival were packin heat, these pigs would not have been necessary. But my guess is no guns were allowed at this festival except for the shooter.

  13. Why is it that the chief piglet chokes up about to cry when talking about his brainwashed piglets and their " bravery " but he does not choke up, nor tear when talking about the deceased and especially kids? Let that sink in for a bit ey…

  14. This kind of insanity has become all too common.Every day in our state in your state.And it's NOT the guns it's the humans who own them.Thanks to the Gilroy police and fire department for their quick and decisive action or this tragedy would have been unimaginable.My prayers go out to the families of those who's lives were cut short.And hope the families and communities can heal .In the wake of such horror.

  15. I have a great idea how about all the people who were in fear for their lives sue the f**** government for disarming people to where they can't defend themselves.

  16. :33 seconds😂 I could tell you the people of Gilroy are strong enough to be disarmed and terrorized. Yay!

  17. No, you can't purchase alcohol or tobacco, but you can buy a gun- no problem! Something's wrong with that picture.

  18. I'm the only survivor from a mass shooting left paralyzed from it . This is very saddening to see that gun violence continues to happen , and that more and more people are victims of such violence . My life was destroyed because of this senseless violence . My heart goes out to all the victims . We need better control of firearms .

  19. America needs real gun control like the rest of the civilised world. When will this crazy country wake up?

  20. I hate that this has become such a common occurrence. That I already know exactly what the news coverage is going to say, and do, in chronological order (depending if you watch liberal or conservative news, but its still a routine) as well as what the public is going to say in response. In the end nothing will change, we will find the next thing to be angry about and move on. This is the best example of the metaphorical definition for insanity (doing the same thing and expecting different results) I can see in America. It takes all of my energy just to make sure me and my family are taken care of, I simply don’t have the time or resources to do anything meaningful about the mass shooting epidemic, and I don’t trust the people who do have these things to do anything about it other than taking advantage of the publics strong emotional responses to garner support for themselves that they can then leverage into imposing their actual goals.

  21. My heart goes out to everyone involved. Maybe that is part of the problem. The thought that nothing bad could happen here. He said ausalt type rifle what is that

  22. Assault weapons legislation in the United States refers to bills and laws (active, expired, proposed or failed) that define and restrict or make illegal the manufacture, transfer, and possession of assault weapons. How these firearms are defined and regulated varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

    The Federal Assault Weapons Ban enacted in 1994 expired in 2004. Attempts to renew this ban have failed, as have attempts to pass a new ban, such as the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 (AWB 2013). Seven U.S. states have assault weapons bans: three were enacted before the 1994 federal ban and four more passed before the federal ban expired. (Wikipedia) Since this ban expired, mass assaults have increased. Americans write to your legislatures!

  23. False. Anyone who walked the entire festival would know the festival was spread out but not the officers. There was a lack of security and the check in security was so calm and didn't bother properly checking people and belongings. I wish there would have been officers and security all around the sides of the creek, the trails, roads, and entire festival.

  24. 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡 🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡🤡 🤡 clown show CBSN fake news

  25. The focus is on the forces which means the per grab is coming now. A famous saying is never let a tragedy go to waste

  26. A fu*king garlic festival. Are you safe nowhere?! What's next Chuck-E-Cheese, this is fu*king insane. Enough already! You need to do a national effort to send psychiatrists incognito into all schools to analyze all high-schoolers, analyze their access to guns and their families. This needs to stop!

  27. Morning, notice its a custom for anglos "white" people to give a FREE PASS to each other in every instance, of true events of missteps or judgment cause and effect. this observation from a native Indian. in times past, all social achievement was with only a general high school education. from my birth are training standard has always been drilled into my soul, that l had to be and have TWICE AND OR 3,TIMES… the national standard that WHITES needed to receive the same grace's. go figure.jt
