The suspect is lucky police didn't kill him when they opened fire.

This is a dangerous job. Glad the suspect is caught and will be tried (I hope). For the officer dragged best hopes that any injuries are not serious and recovery is quick. All the best to the police and CHP in the New Year. Stay safe.

Some things never change. Sandy's already done at least one tour at the Big House. She was previously incarcerated and released on 9/28/18. I'll keep it to myself, but my assumptions were correct.

The incident is too close to home. We have to watch out for each other by reporting suspicious activities going on in our neighborhood.

This is one of the reasons why we have to support our sheriffs and police “peace” officers instead of defunding law enforcement. Those who hold protests to defund law enforcement are more than likely criminals themselves.

I’m glad they caught the suspect. Whatever drove that person to steal a car and engage in a wild chase all the way to Santa Clara is inexcusable, but it is still our duty not to try him/her in the media—that is the court’s purview. Our duty is to help law enforcement by giving them enough funds to keep our community safe.

Here's one very good reason why we need to support our cops with the very best of equipment and training. Folks, if we don't act, we will become another Oakland, San Jose or San Francisco. I suggest the officers involved be publicly commended by Council and extra training be provided to ensure that in future they nail the suspect with the first shot - permanently. So that the word gets out there not to mess with San Ramon! I'd rather see my tax dollars going into pot holes, rather than into gas tanks.
