    $4 Million Bail for Man Who Shot at Cop

    Be careful out there!

    Man pleads not guilty to shooting at rookie cop

    SAN DIEGO The man accused of shooting at a police officer at close range in Encanto this week pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Friday, officials said.
    Rahin L. Mitchell, 32, of San Diego, is charged with attempted murder and assault.

    He was assigned an attorney from the Public Defender's Office and was granted $4 million bail, said Deputy District Attorney Valerie Summers. Mitchell had previously been held without bail.
    He was arrested Wednesday a short time after someone fired at a rookie officer in front of Marie Widman Memorial Park on Imperial Avenue near Woodman Street.

    The officer had just completed his training and was working his second day in the field by himself. He had parked his patrol car and was about to exit to talk to some people nearby when someone pulled up beside him at 3:15 p.m. and fired at least one shot. The officer, who was not identified, was not hit.

    Police said a handgun was found in a white Ford Taurus used in the shooting. The car was later identified as a rental from Hertz in National City.

    A Hertz employee called police to say someone had turned in the Taurus and was trying to obtain another car.

    Authorities said a motive from the shooting was not known, however they said Mitchell has had several run-ins with the law, including two drunken-driving convictions and another DUI crash last month in Lemon Grove.

    I'm glad they caught him and put his ass in jail, but I'd prefer to read his obituary.

    Along the same lines I have a friend that had a shooting his very first day of FTO (after admin crap). They went 10-8 down about a mile did a traffic stop. The driver stepped out of the vehicle and opened fire on the unit. My buddy returned fire and took the driver out. He is still working for the same dept. That was a rude awakening though for him.

    Talk about being thrown into the fire early. I'm glad the officer is alright and hope the POS suspect gets what he deserves , which is , if you want my opinion about six feet of dirt above him.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
