Cop-Killer Dies After Shooting Three Police Officers. Here's the Aftermath.
On Wednesday, we brought you the story of an auto-theft investigation gone wrong, resulting in a wild shoot-out between police and criminal scum determined to escape the law.
The suspect responsible for shooting three police officers, killing one, has been identified as 32-year-old career-criminal Thomas Daniel Littlecloud.
From NBC Bay Area:
The police officer killed by Littlecloud was identified as Sacramento Deputy Robert "Bob" French, 52, a law enforcement veteran with 21 years of service. Deputy French's death signifies the utter break-down of the justice system in California.
By all accounts, Littlecloud should not have been on the street. He has a long and violent criminal history and has been imprisoned on multiple occasions for assault with a semi-automatic weapon, grand theft and evading a police officer. His girlfriend, 23-year-old Priscilla Prendez, has been a self-admitted prostitute since she was just 16 years old.
Littlecloud's criminal behavior was utterly selfish. He had a little boy that needed him. He had every chance to turn his life around and chose not to.
In 2015, Littlecloud was arrested on identity theft, drugs and weapons charges. Although court documents showed a plea bargain had been arranged, Littlecloud went on the run before it became finalized. Friends and family sent messages out online, pleading for him to come to his senses:
Think about your son Thomas, he needs you and he needs his grandparents. Your parents will lose their house September 8th 2017 if you dont turn yourself in. Your mother put everything on the line for you and this is how you're repaying her.? She has given your son a home, love, shelter security and you are taking that away bc you can't do your time.? You should be ashamed to be on the run. You will make the most important decisions of your life these next 2 weeks.. jelani house, federal prison or death. Only you can save yourself* #trustingod
Thanks to Littlecloud's selfishness, a little boy will grow up without a father and his family will lose their home. California's strict gun-control laws didn't stop him from using a high-powered rifle to kill a police officer, nor did the lenient criminal justice policies stop him from a life of criminal behavior. How many more lives will be destroyed before policymakers wake up?
Stay alert. Stay alive.
