Homeless Couple Now Millionaires After Being Shot 15 Times by LAPD

What's Going On

Justice has been served in favor of a homeless LA couple.  The two were tragically shot by LA sheriff’s deputies more than 15 times.  In short, they aren’t homeless anymore…they’re millionaires.

As reported by KTLA, in October of 2010, Angel Martinez along with his then-fiancé, Jennifer were sleeping inside of a shack located on one of their friend’s properties in Lancaster, California.  To their utter surprise, deputies came barging in under the guise of pursuit.  Unbelievably, the two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Christopher Conley and Jennifer Pederson, opened fire on the couple inside the wood-framed shack.  They did not have a warrant.

According to the deputies, they were able to see a BB gun and began shooting on sight.  Their judgment resulted in Angel being shot over 14 times, and his fiancé Jennifer, who was also pregnant during all of this, being shot one time in the back and also received a graze from a bullet, injuring her hand, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.   Angel ultimately had to have some of his leg amputated.  Jennifer was able to fully recover with no harm done to the baby.

“If they would’ve announced, ‘Police, open the door’ I would have came out…I kept screaming for them to ‘stop shooting, stop shooting, my fiancé is pregnant, it’s just a BB gun,’” Angel said.  On a video following the incident, an officer can be heard asking Angel why he went for the replica rifle.  He responded that he did not, and that the rifle was sitting on his bed and he went to move it.

Thankfully for the couple, a judge ruled that their civil rights were violated and awarded them $4.1 million.

The deputies were not penalized.  After an internal investigation, they were cleared of any wrongdoing. “The individual raised a weapon and pointed it at the deputies,” a spokesman for the Sherriff’s department told  the news station. “They have to do what’s necessary and in this case, they  fired.”

  1. How do u justify a shooting when the officers had no business at this place anyways!

  2. i’m so happy they did not harm that woman’s child. Business as usual at the LAPD. A bunch of criminals; just a GANG of thugs, thinking they can do anything to citizens (no matter WHO they are) and get away with it. They all should have been fired because they did not have a reason to be there in the firt place. But, as we all know, that is par for the course with that group of gangsters

  3. These major cities will stay broke because of lawsuits from their corrupt cops

  4. Doing what they had to do, shoot cost them 4.1; I’m happy!

  5. Wow[14]times? You would think they were shooting at a Wild Grizzly Bear or Charging Elephant…So happy that the Child and The Parents are fine…And they Got Paid! Get them where it Hurts the Most in Their Pockets…No Justice- No Peace!

  6. My concern is the ones they persecute for crimes they never done and the victim receives life in prison. Along with frisk in NYC. So happy for the couple here. But not for what they endured to get the suit won. Such a shame! I hope many more of suffering injustice in our families get rewarded IN THIS LIFETIME!

  7. Out of 100 police shootings a year how can all of them but justify, how can every shooting go unpunished and they get time off with pay, let us do something we lose our job we go to jail on the spot even if found not guilty u are marked. I love when other countries take it to the streets we are being Pinned

    Thank God the couple & the unborn child survived this horrible ordeal i don’t understand what’s wrong w/the police they think just because they own a badge & a gun it justify them in wrong doing sorry that the couple had to endure torture in order for them to come out of poverty may God continue to bestow blessings upon this family God’s Finest Creation

  10. This is what happens when israelis train american police, and american police officials take the free trips to israel!

  11. Salaam ,

    This is not a happy story. Lest we forget, this family was terrorized by American Government paid Terrorists. They were subject to home invasion, shot up. injured, the man lost part of his leg. They have been traumatized for life. How about the child? Do you think such a legacy will leave her immune? What is $4 mil of taxpayers money. This needs retribution in blood and servitude by criminal LAPD Thugs and gangsters. They always seem to go unpunished. There is no personal retribution or accountability. In Nuremberg the German SS officers defended themselves by justification, I only followed orders. They were still hung by the neck until they were dead. We need such justice today. The LAPD has become world famous for their repeated atrocities yet we never see any officer ever held accountable.The abuse, murder and mayhem continues unabated.They rush the rapture. They bring Armageddon. You and I pay the tax bill whilst unemployed and homeless with no health care. America the Beautiful!!

    • So are the crips and bloods they’re just too fuckin lazy to get a real job you stupid bitch. Let me guess you’re some uneducated welfare case who feels like since you’re not white EVERYONE else is racist. Fuckin trash, you are what’s wrong with this country, it’s always someone else’s fault, and always racially driven. Get educated on a subject before making yourself sounds as ignorant as I’m sure you look

  14. I do accept as true with all with the tips you’ve offered on your post. They’re really convincing and will surely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please prolong them slightly from next time? Thanks for the post.
