Site Mods: I think a ban is in order for "doesn't matter". RIP Warrior.

You'd think it would have been a woman driver.

ryan rosales @ 7/10/2011 6:44 PM

he was a good friend and a good officer and to come on here and talk shit is so fucked up you are runing his memory

To Ryan Rosales:
You can't ruin the memory of a hero. Ofcr. Stringer protected All of us, including pathetic individuals like " doesn't matter". In fact, his screen name describes his own lack of worth.
As a retired police Sergeant and now a shrink who works with Law Enforcement, i send my condolences to Ofcr. Stringer's family and colleagues and prayers for the other injured officer

Whoever "doesnt matter" is, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. If you don't know anyone in law enforcement, let alone know what it's like to patrol the streets and daily put your life on the line for people you don't know, you are in absolutely no position to criticize.

To "doesnt matter" - You are a pathetic excuse for a human being. Your post reflects the type of person you are in everyday life. I feel sorry for you parents, spouse, children, or whoever else is in your life. You need to stay off this website.

To the family and friends of Officer Stringer- I thank you for his service to the city of Alhambra. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My condolences....

Morning Eagle @ 7/11/2011 8:37 PM

Dear Doesn't Matter,

You certainly picked the appropriate name for yourself because you and your stupid, insulting remarks here DO NOT MATTER. If you ever need assistance just dial 1-800-nobodycares and you will get all the assistance you are worth.

Rest In Peace Officer Stringer, our thoughts are with those you left behind that cared for you.

My heart goes out to the family and loved ones of Ryan. I know all too well how it is to loose a member of your work family. Learn from our mistakes and don't let this tragic event be in vein.

I think the administrators of this site need to pay a little closer attention to some of the comments. This is a law enforcement site that we come to for each other. We don't need to see comments like "DOESNT MATTER" any time let alone when we are mourning the loss of a brother.

Tom Ret LPD @ 7/12/2011 11:13 AM

After reading the comments by doesn't matter, I see why there are so many responses. I would add that your comments are a reflection of what type of person you are. You certainly have earned the title of "germ", something that exists but for no apparent good reason.

Long time ago CHP officers were riding Z1000 Kawasaki,s and if they gave them all Hyabusas well better have allot of ambulance better they care Handguns and shotguns or even M16s allot safer and less deadly..they stopped the Kawaskis too many deaths!
