CBS Los Angeles reported that documented gang member Zachary Castaneda, 33, was taken into custody Wednesday in the attacks that left four dead and two more wounded.
Garden Grove police Chief Tom DaRe said Castaneda was a “violent individual” with a long criminal history that should have kept him in prison, where he’s been 14 times since June 2016. “Based upon his prior arrest record, he is a violent individual who should have never been considered for early release based on Assembly Bill 109.”
The day after a two-hour stabbing rampage in Orange County that left four people dead and two others wounded, authorities on Thursday identified the suspect in custody as a documented gang member and convicted felon.
Disturbing new video released Thursday shows the viciousness of one of the multiple attacks.
In the video, the suspect is seen entering an insurance office in Garden Grove.
He approaches a woman sitting at a desk and then pulls out two long knives that had been concealed in his shirt. With a blade in each hand, he repeatedly stabs and slashes at the woman as she desperately tries to fend off the attack with just a low desk separating them.
She manages to stand up and retreat to the back of the office and tries to put chairs between them as he continues approaching. Then he notices another person at a window counter in the office. He approaches the window, grabs some cash and takes off. More
President of the Association of OC Deputy Sheriffs Tom Dominguez: “In Southern California, we’ve lost four police officers because of AB 109 and now here in Orange County, we have four innocent citizens just going about their business who were brutally murdered and it’s terrible. It should not happen and it needs to stop.”
The CA politicians who allowed this ought to be in jail as accessories to murder and aggravated assault.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
