A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy has admitted he lied about an incident in which he claimed to have been shot from an open window in an apartment complex.
Angel Reinosa totally fabricated the shooting. He admitted to investigators that the claim was a hoax on Saturday, concocted because he had recently received unfavorable performance reviews related to his performance as a law enforcement officer.
Reinosa claimed he was fired at from an apartment building while standing in a Lancaster parking lot on Wednesday. First responders became suspicious of his story when he arrived at an emergency without any visible gunshot wound. He later admitted to investigators that he poked a hole in his uniform with a knife.
In a Saturday night news conference, Captain Kent Wegener made it clear that “there was no sniper, no shots fired and no gunshot injuries sustained to his shoulder — completely fabricated.”
Reinosa’s hoax set off a lengthy and complicated law enforcement operation hoping to catch the window shooter, who never even existed. The residents of a four-story apartment building were hassled and treated as criminals as cops searched for a supposed sniper.
In an embarrassing development for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, they tweeted about detaining two individuals for “being uncooperative” during the search for the fake shooter.
Cops also seized someone’s pellet rifle in a laughable attempt to find the “sniper’s” rifle.
*UPD* 2 adults detained re uncoop during operation, active search concluded, investigation ongoing & scene still active.

The agency now owes a sincere apology to the individuals it placed in custody, all on the basis of an elaborate hoax created by a deputy seeking to play the victim.
Reinosa has given law enforcement officers who obey their oath to serve the public a bad name. He’s been relieved of his duties, and it’s likely he’ll soon face criminal charges for his hoax.
Should gun control and “red flag” gun confiscation measures be enacted by the state of California, corrupt hoaxsters like Angel Reinosa will be given arbitrary power to unlawfully seize the legally owned firearms of American patriots.
FLASHBACK: Kamala Harris Called Mandatory Gun “Buyback” Confiscation A “Good Idea”
She followed Beto O’Rourke’s lead.
During her failed campaign for the presidency, California Senator and newly minted Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris appeared to endorse Beto O’Rourke-style gun confiscation. Harris called the notion of mandatory “buyback” gun confiscations a “good idea” in an interview with Bloomberg News, following the lead of another Democratic contender, Beto O’Rourke.
Harris, who endorsed the policy when speaking after a campaign event in New Hampshire, qualified that additional details had to be resolved to enact mandatory buybacks, but made it clear she expressly supports the notion of mandatory confiscation buybacks.
“I think it’s a good idea… We have to work out the details — there are a lot of details — but I do,” responded Harris when asked about her potential support for Beto O’Rourke’s aggressive gun seizure agenda. “We have to take those guns off the streets,” she said of the millions of legally owned semiautomatic firearms in civilian hands.
Harris’ entry into the Democratic ticket possibly signals Joe Biden’s most cogent embrace of the gun confiscation policies long favored by the neoliberal extremist element of the Democratic Party, which go a step further than most liberal gun control policies in actively mandating that law-abiding patriots who own so-called “assault weapons” surrender their guns to the government.
Biden has previously stated that he plans on appointing Beto O’Rourke to “take care of the gun problem” in his administration when he’s office. He appears primed to surround himself with the most draconian anti-gun confiscation enthusiasts as President.
