  1. And as always, this will NOT appear as a ‘homicide’ in the purely fantasy Salinas PD crime data. The shooter has a bad aim, so Salinas is statistically safer, and a nice place for your family and business. ‘Attempted Homicide’ is never reported alongside homicide stats in the news. Because it would injure the purely false impression that crime in Salinas is down. And, it isn’t. It is literally false propaganda (also known as lies) to make the PD look effective and the city council look like they are doing a good job. Defund police. Lovely idea. Shooting girls in cars. That’s OK. Putting up with gang violence is acceptable. Salinas is a cesspool, and everyone but the media says it. But the media, needs it to look ‘normal’…protect the flow of advertising dollars and retail sales. It is so pathetic to read these stories literally on a daily basis.
