Community: Suspect leads SRPD on a 45-minute pursuit, terminating with the successful deployment of spike strips.
On Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022, at approximately 3:04 a.m., a Santa Rosa Police Officer was in the area of Petaluma Hill Rd and Frazier Ave. when he observed a silver Acura 2-door vehicle driving through the area with loud exhaust. The driver of the vehicle noticed the officer and attempted to turn quickly onto a side street.
The officer followed the Acura and attempted a traffic stop for the Vehicle Code violation, but the vehicle did not yield. The vehicle accelerated into the South Park Neighborhood of town and continued to evade the officer. A pursuit ensued, which covered both east and west areas of Santa Rosa. The pursuit covered several miles throughout town and lasted approximately 45 minutes. The pursuit reached speeds of approximately 100 MPH along Highway 12 and eventually extended into the northern part of Santa Rosa.
SRPD Officers attempted to set up spike strips at several locations throughout the pursuit and eventually were able to successfully spike strip the Acura near the intersection of Old Redwood Hwy and Mark West Springs Rd. The Acura then continued on for a short distance southbound with three flat tires before coming to a stop in the roadway near the 4400 block of Old Redwood Highway. The solo male driver quickly exited the vehicle and began running into a large dark field east of the location, where he jumped a large fence into a residential neighborhood.
SRPD Officers gave chase and immediately set up a perimeter around the neighborhood. It was quickly discovered that the suspect had gained entry into an unlocked rear door to a residence along Dorchester Dr. The homeowners were awakened to the suspect attempting to hide in one of their bedrooms. Officers were able to contact the suspect, along with the assistance of a Police K9, and take the suspect into custody without further incident. The suspect was found to be in possession of approximately 12 grams of suspected methamphetamine. None of the residents were injured during the incident.
The male driver was identified as Jose Hernandez, a 35-year-old Santa Rosa resident, currently on Felony Probation (PRCS), with priors for Felony evading and possession of a firearm. Hernandez was later booked into county jail for the following charges:
-3452 VC – Violation of PRCS – Felony
-2800.2(a) VC - Evading a Peace Officer - Felony
-11377(a) H&S – Possession of Methamphetamine
-459 PC – Burglary- Felony

SRPD Case #22-9743
“However, the hardline Kayhan newspaper, whose editor-in-chief is appointed by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, wrote: ‘A thousand bravos ... to the brave and dutiful person who attacked the apostate and evil Salman Rushdie in New York,’ adding, ‘The hand of the man who tore the neck of God’s enemy must be kissed.’”
“The 15th Khordad Foundation, a wealthy Iranian religious organization, increased the bounty on Rushdie's head to $2.5 million in 1997, eight years after it first offered a reward. The foundation increased the amount to $3.3 million in 2012.”
The Department of Justice has charged a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in an alleged assassination plot against John Bolton, who was national security advisor under former President Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Bolton has continued to speak out about the danger that Iran presents. “While much cannot be said publicly right now, one point is indisputable: Iran’s rulers are liars, terrorists, and enemies of the United States,” he said in a statement concerning the Poursafi indictment, according to the Post.
“Their radical, anti-American objectives are unchanged; their commitments are worthless; and their global threat is growing,” Bolton said.
George Soros is more than a little out of touch with the average American.
On July 31, Soros demonstrated as much in an Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal. In the piece, the leftist billionaire was adamant that despite calls for him to stop funding “woke,” weak-on-crime district attorneys, he will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
In the Op-Ed, Soros suggested a left-wing approach to criminal justice — “decriminalizing” poverty, mental health, and drug use (by “decriminalizing”, he means removing any accountability for those who commit crimes under any of those circumstances) and stricter gun control — would be the most effective route towards lowering crime rates.
He even went as far as to claim that a “tough-on-crime” approach is ineffective in lowering crime.
Many such cities have one thing in common — at the center of the violence sits a Soros-funded district attorney.
“They brazenly usurp the constitutional role of the legislative branch by refusing to prosecute entire categories of crime, abuse the role of the county prosecutor, fail to protect victims of crime, and ignore the rising crime rates that flow from their radical policies,” ….
“This movement exists because George Soros and a handful of billionaires have invested heavily in the election of district attorneys who are working to reverse-engineer and dismantle the criminal justice system as we know it — a system that, while not perfect, has resulted in the lowest crime and incarceration rates in decades.”
Police officers, the front line of defense between crime and the average American, have also noticed this problem.
In an exclusive interview with The Western Journal back in June of 2021, Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police veteran from Chicago Suburbs, called out Soros specifically when talking about Chicago’s rampant crime problem.
“It is not necessarily about how many arrests the Chicago Police Department is making; it is about how those cases are being prosecuted,” Smith told The Western Journal.
“We have a Soros-funded progressive prosecutor in the Cook County state’s attorney’s office — that is Kim Foxx — and she is one of the many progressive prosecutors that have been elected in the last eight to 10 years in this country.”

SAN DIEGO — The California senate now has a bill that would dramatically change how domestic violence crimes are reported. Supporters say it would help keep victim's safe, while the critics argue it can only make domestic violence situations more dangerous.
The assembly bill would remove the requirement that a health practitioner must make a report to law enforcement when they suspect a patient has suffered physical injury caused by assault or abusive conduct.
The bill’s co-sponsor, Assembly member Buffy Wicks, tweeted in part, “Research has shown that mandatory reporting to law enforcement can keep survivors of domestic and sexual violence from seeking health care.”
“This is quite outrageous. This bill makes absolutely no sense,” said San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan who opposes the bill.
“Imagine a victim arrives stabbed multiple times to the hospital and the doctor cannot report to law enforcement. It’s unfathomable that we will subject our victims to this treatment. How is this going to protect them? They didn’t protect themselves! They didn’t stab themselves,” said Stephan.
