The man wielding an umbrella was charged with brandishing a weapon.

In the latest example of police shooting first and asking questions later, a California cop opened fire on a man pointing an umbrella at him.

The Santa Rosa cop fired three times with his AR-15 but missed. The man took off running but the cop chased after him and tackled him.

That may have been the moment the cop realized the man had been wielding an umbrella all along.

Nevertheless, Joshua Oceguera was charged with making criminal threats, assault and brandishing a weapon, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

A California law firm explained on its website that in the eyes of the state, "a deadly weapon can be anything from a firearm to a baseball bat or even a bottle."

In order to convict you of brandishing a deadly weapon, the prosecution must prove each of the following beyond a reasonable doubt:

1.    You possessed a deadly weapon as defined by law, and

2.    You drew or exhibited the weapon in a rude, angry or threatening manner in front of someone else, or

3.    You actually used the weapon unlawfully in a quarrel or fight with someone, and

4.    You were not acting in self defense or in the defense of someone else

The incident took place Saturday afternoon and was captured on the officer's body camera which will eventually be released under a new California transparency law, according to Fox 10.

When officers arrived, they said the suspect was “non-compliant and at one point brandished what the officer believed was a rifle.”

"We later learned that the item the suspect had brandished was a black umbrella," Marincik said.

Police did not provide body camera video or a photo of the umbrella. "Under AB 748 and SB 1421, any related body worn camera and investigative reports that fall under those categories will be released at a future date," Marincik said in an email, referring to two laws that mandate the eventual release of such information.

The officer fired three rounds from his department-issued rifle, Marincik said. The rounds did not strike the suspect and no one was “seriously injured,” though Marincik did not explain in detail what that meant.

The suspect then ran away from the officer, who chased him and tackled him to the ground a short distance later. The officer took the suspect into custody.

Marincik said the officer, who has less then two years on the force, is on paid administrative leave. The officer will be interviewed this week and the department will likely release his name "in the next day or two."

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

I think he saw a rifle.

"The incident began when police received seven calls from citizens around 12:30 p.m. reporting a suspicious individual near Guerneville and Fulton roads. Some of the callers said the man had a firearm and was pointing it at people and cars."

Santa Rosa officer fires at suspect whose umbrella was mistaken for a rifle

A Santa Rosa police officer responding to reports of a man with a gun on Saturday afternoon fired three rounds — and missed — at a man carrying an umbrella that the officer mistook for a rifle, authorities said.

The suspect was later tackled by the officer as he ran away on the city’s west side, according to police. The suspect, Joshua Oceguera, was booked into the Sonoma County Jail on Saturday night on complaints of criminal threats, assault and brandishing a weapon, Lt. Dan Marincik said.

The incident began when police received seven calls from citizens around 12:30 p.m. reporting a suspicious individual near Guerneville and Fulton roads. Some of the callers said the man had a firearm and was pointing it at people and cars.

It was not clear Saturday exactly how many callers had mentioned a firearm.

The officer, who was not identified, attempted to stop the suspect on Guerneville Road west of Fulton Road, police said.

The man did not comply with the officer’s orders and then displayed what the officer thought was a rifle, police said. The incident took place just outside the city limits, Marincik said.

The officer fired three shots from his department-issued AR-15 rifle but missed the suspect.

He was able to chase the man down and apprehend him, police said.

Under department protocol, the officer has been placed on administrative leave, Marincik said. The officer is expected to be questioned on Monday about the incident.

The cop should be charged with misfeasance for missing the shot.

Yeah. The clue was "The officer fired three shots from his department-issued AR-15 rifle …". That told me something else was going on.
