Calif. Deputy Arrests Man, After Regaining Control of Duty Pistol
November 01, 2011
During a physical struggle with a man who had threatened to kill his family, a Shasta County (Calif.) Sheriff's deputy regained control of his service weapon and made the arrest.
Deputy Brian Jackson responded to a home in the 25000 block of Highway 44 in Millville around 8 a.m. Sunday to find Joshua Antonio David Ruja, 27, physically fighting with family members.
Ruja shook off a TASER and attacked the deputy, grabbing his sidearm. Deputy Jackson wrested it away from Ruja and eventually arrested him, reports The Record Searchlight.

Our deputies are being attacked on a regular basis thanks to the open door jail policy of jerry brown... Second attack in two days.. We need two man cars and more coppers in patrol... It will get much worse before we see a change... Until then scso... Wait for a backup even if it slows you down by an hour. I only care about the safety of our deputies

Thanks to Gov. Brown, the jail system is becoming a revolving door for these scumbags. Thank God the Deputy was able to regain control over his weapon. This is becoming a problem everywhere and the respect for LEO's almost non existent. In my dept. we are allowed to carry short woods (10" to 14" baton) which I carry in my rear leg pocket. It is the most useful weapon I have ever had. I still carry it today and is a perfect weapon to have.
Especially, when you work by yourself, the short wood is a perfect weapon
to use in close quarters defense. We need every bit of leverage we can get.

Ol Jerry passed a law that outlawed open carry of UNLOADED guns. That's really going to make CA safer! We need CCW laws in CA like they have in Florida, Texas and Virginia. With more thugs leaving prison and the reduction in LEO's, CA crime is rising. LAPD put out a bulletin warning people that thugs are ripping gold jewelry off of people as they walk down the street. It's already being seen here in the Coachella Valley. A jewelry store was robbed by thugs with AK's not long ago; the second heist of that store in 6 months. With civilians able to defend themselves with CCW, more thugs will be caught or will get killed.
