ANTIFA Terrorist Allegedly Killed Sheriff’s Deputy and Media Covered Up His Left-Wing Ties

Breitbart News previously reported that U.S. Air Force Sergeant Steven Carrillo shot and killed Sergeant Damon Gutzwiller in Ben Lomond, an unincorporated area close to Santa Cruz. A second deputy was injured and a third officer from the California Highway Patrol received a gunshot wound in his hand,

The San Francisco Chronicle noted that although investigators have not determined that Carrillo had anti-law enforcement motives, he posted multiple times on Facebook defending Antifa and against police actions during Black Lives Matter protests.

The Chronicle highlighted the following:


In the 48 hours before Steven Carrillo allegedly shot a Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputy to death in an ambush, the Air Force staff sergeant who led an elite protection unit posted a flurry of Facebook posts that were critical of police brutality and law enforcement’s responses to the Black Lives Matter protests.

“Who needs antifa to start riots when you have the police to do it for you,” Carrillo wrote Friday, sharing a post about tear gas fired at protesters in Richmond, Va.

Carrillo posted another meme before Saturday’s shootout with deputies in Ben Lomond, mocking the idea that tear gas kills the coronavirus and commenting: “Unfortunately it just kills people with asthma, RIP Sarah Grossman.” Carrillo was referring to the Ohio woman who died after getting tear gassed by police at a protest in Columbus.


Carrillo is also implicated in an incident where he shot at the Oakland Federal Building and ended up killing security officer Pat Underwood and injured his co-worker on May 29, 2020.

Although the media is portraying the man as a “right-wing” extremist, his beliefs appear to be more on the Left.

On Twitter user said, “Huge. Active duty @usairforce Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo killed a Santa Cruz Sheriff Deputy. He had antifa-sympathetic FB posts, and was in an anti-insurgent Air Force security unit called the “Ravens”. Media’s covered this up for a reason.”


The Twitter user also noted, “During his arrest, Carrillo shouted at officers, ‘This is what I came here to fight. I’m sick of these goddamn police’ … then mentions police ‘use of force’.”


The user then concluded “Media and FBI will desperately gaslight that Sgt Carrillo was right wing. See for yourself. @dannoyes captured screenshots of Sgt Carrillo’s FB just between his shooting of Fed Agent Dave Underwood and Deputy Sheriff Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller.”


Carrillo’s ties to the right-wing might not be so cut and dry.

Being anti-law enforcement and using insurrectionist behavior is typical of the Left.

More facts will need to emerge before we can officially declare that Carrillo is a right-winger.
