A gang member who was recently freed from jail killed his cousin and stole his car Monday then shot and killed a California police officer and wounded his partner before being wounded himself, authorities said.

Whittier Officer Keith Lane Boyer died and Officer Patrick Hazel was wounded when they answered a report of a traffic accident in the eastern Los Angeles County suburb.

A motorist pointed out the location of the car that had rear-ended his vehicle, and the officers approached the driver.

“When they get him out of the car, they go to pat him down for weapons, they can see he’s got tattoos all over his face and all over his neck,” county sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said.

The man then pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband and opened fire at the officers, who were wearing bulletproof vests and shot back, Corina said

The article didn't say what crime he was in prison for before his release.

Suspect Michael Christopher Mejia, 26, was sentenced to four years in prison in 2010 on a felony robbery charge as a member of a street gang and was paroled in 2014, according to Jeffrey Callison, a spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

While on parole, Mejia was arrested again on grand theft and vehicle theft charges and sentenced to an additional two years in prison, Callison said.

4 years for a felony robbery charge. 2 years for grand theft and vehicle theft to a felon ? Typical California.

In 2010, Mejia was convicted of robbery and sentenced to four years in prison, according to court records. His 2014 conviction came with a two-year prison sentence.

Since being released last year, Mejia has been arrested five times for probation violations, Los Angeles County booking records show. His most recent arrest was on Feb. 2. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/police-744630-cousin-whittier.html

arrested 5 times on probation violations since being released from prison last year. This is a guy who either doesn't get it or doesn't care to fit into a lawful society.

It might be easier to list what crimes he did not commit.

I don't always have an issue with some people being released early, but often the only crime that resulted in the conviction was one of many others due to a plea or other reasons.

One of CA's laws that politically sensitive prosecutors seem not to be enforcing is CA's Three Strikes law (a ballot proposition). That guy probably should have been prosecuted in 2014 for that as well - the Orange County Register listed 2 felonies, but I doubt their list was comprehensive - and been in Soledad or San Quentin serving a life term instead of being out on the streets and able to kill this police officer.

I just didn't want to judge the CA DOC without all the information. Now I know. He shouldn't have been out after violating parole. He served his time on the robbery charge, but should have been stuck back in for all of his violations.

In MI, he would have gotten more time for the robbery charge, probably more like 7-10 at least.

As it should be.

Not sure, maybe CA is lax on the time due to not having a lot of room for all of the prisoners?
