POMONA – A weekend checkpoint caused residents to express concern and accusations to fly at a City Council meeting on Monday.
Councilwoman Cristina Carrizosa said residents were frightened and that the behavior of officers reminded her of movie scenes depicting the Gestapo.
Several people spoke at the meeting about Saturday afternoon’s DUI checkpoint at Mission Boulevard and San Antonio Avenue.
Police Chief Joe Romero said the remarks about the Gestapo were offensive to the officers at the checkpoint and that they were owed an apology.
Pomona businessman Francisco Espinoza said the checkpoints targeted Latinos and urged the council to “take control of the city.”
“Take it back. You control the Police Department, and you work for us,” he said.
