Report: Governor Gavin Newsom Skips Memorial Service of Officer Murdered by Two Illegal Aliens 

On Thursday, the DOJ handed down federal indictments against four people who were arrested in connection with the murder of El Dorado County Sheriff Deputy Brian Ishmael.

The charges that were handed down revolve around illegally growing marijuana and illegally discharging a firearm. The indictments also confirm that two of the suspects who were arrested for murdering the sheriff were in the country illegally.

Deputy Ishmael worked for the Sheriff’s department for four years; he was a husband and the father of three children.

On October 23rd, Deputy Brian Ishmael was killed and another deputy wounded after responding to a call about stolen marijuana crops at a private residence. Deputy Ishmael was shot and killed after immediately coming under fire by an unknown number of people. The injured deputy was taken to a local hospital and released after undergoing surgery.

In what can only be called a total slap in the face to police officers everywhere, Governor Gavin Newsom skipped the memorial service for Deputy Ishmael.

It is customary for city officials, especially mayors and governors, to attend the memorial services of officers who are killed in the line of duty. It’s a show of respect for their service and sacrifice as they stand in solidarity with grieving officers. Of course, Gavin Newsom did not do any of that.

Instead, he skipped the memorial service altogether and in doing so, sent an obvious message about how he feels about law enforcement.

The kicker is, the memorial service was held at a location that was about an hour’s drive from Newsom’s office. And to make matters worse, he didn’t even bother to send a representative.

Why did Newsom avoid the service? Was he worried that his appearance at the service would trigger his radical base of supporters who care more about illegal criminals than they do about American citizens?

The responses online to Gavin’s snub were understandably harsh.

“Shame on you @GavinNewsom for not showing up for Deputy Ishmael’s funeral Tuesday! It was tackier than heck to give radio silence on that somber day. Go to Hell, Newsom! #RecallGavinNewsom Do Not forget this POS refused to honor a Deputy, & gave sanctuary to the murderer!”

“Why did Gavin Newsom skip slain deputy Brian Ishmael’s memorial? The answer may be hideous.”

“By not going to the memorial, Governor Newsom doesn’t add more attention to the illegal aliens who are charged with the deputy’s murder. His narrative is that illegal immigrants pose zero danger to citizens. He wants this story buried.”
