Rosendo Betancourt-Garcia (6131)

6/30/2011: Four men (Betancourt-Garcia, Gonzalez-Valdez, Lemus & Andrew) were shot to death in a botched drug & armed home invasion sting staged by the county SWAT team. One was shot 40 times while cowering unarmed and in a fetal position. The county has paid $600K in wrongful-death settlements to date. The State Attorney's Office report pointed to "a number of unusual, counter-intuitive, suspicious and/or disturbing factors" and justified the shootings reluctantly.
