"We got the message," said Police Chief Cel Rivera.
The 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe was parked Wednesday night in a location police keep secret when the damage occurred.
The SUV was worth about $17,000.
Authorities believe the crowd had gathered for a party.
The policeman, whose name wasn't released (probably to save his life), was in the area responding to another call when he saw several people assaulting a man.
When the officer went to break up the fight, the crowd’s attention switched from the party to him.
In an attempt to keep the mob at bay the copper sent his dog into the throng of people.
The animal latched onto one suspect who was apprehended and later identified as 18-year-old Alfredo Espinoza.
But Espinoza had the crowd on his side. When the officer approached him for an arrest, they pulled the teen away and allegedly challenged the cop to a fight.
One suspect reportedly lunged at the officer during the struggle; his two-way radio broke during the scuffle. He yelled for neighbors to call 911, using his gun to hold off the mob.
Another in the crowd threatened that he "wouldn't be leaving the scene alive."
In addition to Espinoza, authorities arrested Andrew Mitchell, 20; Matthew Reyes, 19; William Rodriguez, 29; and Junior Suarez, 19; on charges ranging from resisting and delaying a police officer and false imprisonment of an officer to forcibly removing a suspect from police custody and assaulting a police dog.
The police have no leads as to who did this but are planning on putting in more security cameras in hopes of catching the person responsible in the act next time they come.
The estimated cost to fix the tires is around $2000.

The incident came as guards were "tossing cells" in search of contraband such as marijuana, tobacco, lighters and matches that had appeared with greater frequency as of late.
Inmate frustration had increased since privileges such as television were being threatened because of the recent spike in contraband.
"We sent a correctional deputy in to try to explain...This inmate then threw his hands up and took an aggressive stance...At this point the deputies took him down."
Inmates then pulled a television from the wall and threw it to the ground. He said inmates also destroyed security cameras and fluorescent lights before starting a small fire, which allowed inmates to force the automatically deployed fire doors all the way down, temporarily blocking the space.

The robbery took place at a Bank of America near 32nd Street and Camelback Road.
At 12:25 p.m., a man entered the bank and displayed a gun. A teller put $20,000 in a bank bag. The man took the money and left in a cab, which was identified as a Sunrise Cab. No one was injured.
At 28th Street and Camelback Road, $20 bills were thrown out the window of the cab.
The vandalism also set back the Coosa High School football program as suspects caused heavy damage to the athletic facilities at Eagle’s Stadium.
Saturday morning unknown suspects broke into the athletic facilities building after vandalizing an equipment shed, cutting through a lock with a hacksaw found at the scene to gain entry into the building.
The suspects then ransacked and damaged a number of rooms inside the facility, including the locker rooms, offices, the athletic trainer’s office and equipment room, where an ice machine was pulled down and the pads and helmets were thrown around the room.
Several holes were knocked into the walls and doors pulled off their hinges inside the building, the initial entry was made through a window in the head coach’s office, no major damage was found there.
Graffiti was also found painted on a bus and on the outside of buildings at the football stadium behind the high school.
Damage is estimated between $10,000 and $15,000.

John Hege, 41, of Concord, who had been with the department since 1999, was pronounced dead at Highland Hospital shortly before noon today, said Jeff Thomason, a department spokesman. The department later said he was declared brain dead and that his organs would be harvested for donation.
The three other Oakland police officers were pronounced dead Saturday after a traffic stop and, later, as a SWAT team tried to apprehend the man.
The gunman, Lovelle Mixon, 27, of Oakland was fatally shot after police tracked him down to a nearby apartment.
Happy Anniversary! Last night People Against War broke three windows at a military recruitment center in Fort Collins, Colorado. We threw the stones in commemoration of 6 years of murder in Iraq. We wanted to celebrate with a bang! With a smash and a crash!
Yup, we know this is a little action. Breaking a few windows is small resistance to the machinery of the state that's destroying millions of lives. But an anniversary's an anniversary and we wanted to celebrate!
Military recruitment gets a big grin out of people losing jobs, cause there's ever more despair to feed off of. Even a few broken windows diverts time and money that would go to recruitment.
Grab a rock and join in celebrating the anniversary!!
The center has been the target of protests for the last 18 months, and stands as a symbol of U.S. militarism and imperialist wars. The act of property distruction stands alone as the embodyment of frustration of a people whos government does not listen to or care about them.Police have not made any arrests but are reviewing the tape, said Sgt. Mary Kusmiss. A sledgehammer and a crowbar were found in a nearby garbage can nearby, and are being reviewing as evidence. After breaking windows and improving the Marine Corps logo at the center, the group wearing masks and dark clothing scattered in three different directions.
As of the time of this posting, no one involved has been arrested. The act was easy. You and a few friends could have pulled it off any day.
NO MORE IMPERIALIST WARS!!!
NO MORE GOVERNMENT!!!
SMASH THE STATE!!!
The fire gutted the Cosmopolitan on the Canal project that had been nearing completion and spread onto the roof of the adjacent headquarters of the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana, causing smoke and water damage. No one was injured in the fire that began before dawn Thursday.
No information on the amount of damages, estimated earlier at $28 million to the apartment complex.

He associates with other pieces of human shit like Edythe London who is addicting and experimenting on monkeys. The things you and others like you do to feeling sentient monkeys is so cruel and disgusting we can't believe anyone would be able to live with themselves.
David, here's a message just for you, we will come for you when you least expect it and do a lot more damage than to your property. Where ever you go and what ever you do we'll be watching you as long as you continue to do your disgusting experiments on monkeys.
And a special message for the FBI, the more legit activists you fuck with the more it inspires us since we're the people whom you least suspect and when we hit we hit hard.Animal Liberation Brigade

Residents of a home near Pacific Coast Highway reported the crime about 8:15 p.m. Thursday.
The victim, who is white, asked the newspaper to withhold his name and address.
A similar crime was reported at the same address last month.
Caught between our fleeting mortal lives and the fleeting "freedoms" allowed to us by the state, we have felt strong sorrow and disgust at the state of the world and our society. Last night, we decided to make tangible our despair.
Last night, we attacked the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Mission St. We think it's new, we're not entirely sure, but either way the sight of it bores us to death. Two stones cracked two windows and we melted back into the shadows. Property will never be worth more than the lives of living things. Solidarity with our poultry brethren; we may not be the same species, but we breath the same poison air.
We acknowledge that attacks like this do little to actually harm the infrastructure of capital or animal abuse. They are a great way, though, to become familiar with night action. We encourage all who feel a brooding discontent to find ways of expressing it. We cannot wait for a revolutionary situation; we must create that situation. This is just the beginning. We have begun.
War on capital!
yours in long-term low-intensity conflict,
yours for escalation,
autonomous rebels for social collapse

At around 10 a.m., an anonymous caller to the Beaumont Police Department said the courthouse would be blown up in half an hour.
BPD immediately notified the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, which handles courthouse security, and deputies then notified department heads and discussed the situation with elected officials.
The first day of the work week is also the busiest at the courthouse, with county residents showing up for jury selection, docket calls and other courthouse business, so officials had hundreds of lives to consider when calling for the evacuation.
This time a malfunctioning boiler system gave them the unplanned respite -- a day earlier a snowstorm did the honors.
About 50 gallons of heating oil spilled from a pump that feeds into a day tank located in a boiler room in the school.
Fhe main concern and the reason for keeping students at home was the odor caused by the spilled oil.
The boiler problem just added to the school's physical woes this week.On Monday school officials found that glue had been squirted into the key locks of every access door to the building, vandalism that will result in about $2,000 in repairs.
Between $400,000 and $500,000 in jewels were stolen from a salesman late Tuesday as he drove up to his hotel for the night.
The victim in the Kansas City case was from Israel, and he was approached by two men around 8 p.m. in the parking lot of a Courtyard by Marriott hotel. One assailant was armed with a handgun and demanded the goods. There was no description of the robbers in this case.
This morning in Dallas, Texas, a robber disguised as a FedEx delivery man stole $600,000 worth of diamonds from Select Diamond Company in the northern part of the city, according to the Dallas Morning News. The robber also took $100,000 worth of Rolex watches. This suspect rushed the door as he was granted entry and knocked out the store manager.
The fire is believed to have been started by more than one person.
A manager of the store on Mission Gorge Road near Cuyamaca Street noticed the smoke coming from the babies clothing section and used a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze.
Most recently, vandals have damaged separate 60,000-volt and 120,000-volt lines that supply electricity to the Fernley area.Emergency repair crews had to be called out, and were able to complete repairs and avoid a power outage.
About a year ago the P.A.B. thoughtfully subscribed 3 of our good vivisecting murderous friends to some choice magazines.
Robert H. Lane of 4552 Jupiter Dr. in Salt Lake City, Utah; Alessandra Angelucci (& Her Husband Paul Bressloff) of 2705 E. Eagle Way in Salt Lake City, Utah; and Jennifer Ichida of 422 1st Ave. in Salt Lake City, Utah, all received multi-thousands of dollars worth of magazine subscriptions.
We even sent a few hundred dollars worth of subscriptions to our old friend Audie Leventhal, who has since retired from the feild of vivisection yet still puts his name on other vivisectors work.
The P.A.B. is back!
We have sent many friends our gifts, and hope that they will be receiving more gifts time and time again. As subscriptions take time, we are unable to release the names of our other friends we have rewarded with the timeless memories of magazines. Future communiques will be seen. Just a hint: "Fur is a sin, Wear your own skin!"
The Postal Annoyance Brigade
Here is how we do it:
While you shop at any store that sells magazines, look around the floor of the magazine section and you will see subscription cards (they look like post cards).
Gather up the ones you see and put them in your pocket.
If you are more daring just open up some magazines and a few should fall out.
Try to gather as many different varieties as you can.
Now take them to your home or a park and seperate them by magazine.
Find your 'friends' details, and start filling out a card from each pile.
Once you are done filling out the info for that 'friend' move onto another friend and continue until all cards are gone. If you only have a few friends, you can try giving them nicknames. Charlie may be Chuck, you wouldn't want your friend to miss a magazine just because you sent it to Charlie and not Chuck.
Having trouble finding friends? look up "the final nail" they have lists and lists of friends for you to choose from.
Now, take the stacks of cards and find idle post boxes. Try and seperate the cards so that there are no more than 5 to a post box. The mail man may get a little suspicious if he sees 100 cards.
That's it. They should start receiving magazines within the next 2-4 weeks.Why it works? The magazines will start coming in every week to every month. If your friend doesn't stop the subscriptions it will charge them. They will be billed and will have to argue that bill isn't valid. Which takes time and even a little money sometimes. When a friend receives hundreds of magazines they have no more time to sit and sort through false bills. They will either have to just pay the bills or hire a person to sort through them. Often times a magazine company will charge the person for the first issue even if they cancel their subscriptions, some even charge a small cancellation fee. This is both time and cost consuming, this is why it works.

Beneath a security blanket of darkness during the early morning hours of Friday, February 20, Tucson H.A.A.N.D. (Hooligans Attack At Night Duh!) visited the homes of University of Arizona Vivisector Katalin M. Gothard and Rosemont Copper (RC) Director of Environmental & Regulatory Affairs Kathy Arnold.
We chose Kathy Arnold because of all her work she does with RC as their Director of Environmental & Regulatory Affairs. RC is attempting to mine in the beautiful Santa Rita Mountains for copper. We say no mine thank you! Mining in the Santa Ritas would threaten numerous species, plants and sensitive wild areas. Mining for copper to build solar panels is a false solution and unacceptable. The Santa Ritas are part of the Sky Island Region a Biological Hotspot home to 404 bird species,117 reptile species, 26 amphibian species, thousands of plant species. A number of these species are endemic to this region. The Santa Ritas should never be home to a mine. Dear Kathy destroying the land of wild animals and plants for more ingredients of a larger Infrastructure nightmare is no way to live. You should know that our environment is no place for you to hold your twisted affairs! We slashed your tire so that maybe you will think of the Mountain Lions and Black Bears that live where you want to build a mine. We bet the etching cream on the window of your house will leave a lasting impression of our visit. Maybe the cost of replacing it will make you think twice about the lasting irreplaceable costs your companies proposed mine would inflict on the Santa Ritas. Katalin Gothard is an assistant Professor Vivisector) within the Department of Physiology College of Medicine Life Sciences in North Room 327 of the University of Arizona Tucson, her Phone # is (520) 626-1448. Her Email is kgothard [at] email.arizona.edu. Her home addy is [REMOVED BY INDYBAY]. Her home # is [REMOVED BY INDYBAY]. Katalin makes a living by performing research on rhesus monkeys. Her research procedures involve screwing metal plates into the monkey’s skulls and affixing magnetic search coils to thier eyes. After these medical procedures are performed she then the trains the monkeys to to tolerate head immobilization and to fixate on objects presented on a computer monitor. What the fuck type of demented mind could do such a thing? Apparently, Katalin Gothard and her cohorts. To the sound of Coyotes howling in the mountains we lifted the utility cover to your water in front of your house, turned the water off and the poured in cement to make sure it stayed off for a damn long time! We bet it's a little harder to wash the blood off your hands and scrub away all those thoughts of torturing monkeys all day long huh Katalin. If you insist on working, get a real job!
Kathy, stay the fuck away from our mountains you sick fuck! Katalin, Leave the monkeys alone (your a sick fuck too)!
We dedicate this action to our four CA comrades in the fight against vivisection that were arrested the same day.
Y'all fools can keep trying to stop us by throwing us in jail. Cause you can't lock up Revolutionary Solidarity for the land and Animals, duh!

The district is discussing where to hold classes on Wednesday. They're considering using the Baptist church, the school's work shop, and if needed, the gymnasium.
Calhoun High School in Calhoun, Mo., suffered heavy smoke damage after an arsonist set fire to the school early Saturday morning.
A clock damaged in the fire indicates the fire was set around 1:10 a.m.
Calhoun Fire Chief Kendall Price said the fire was started in the principal's office, which is now filled with heaps of ashes. Most everything in the office is unsalvageable. The school's only computer lab also suffered extensive damage.
"What we look at is everybody's a suspect," said Price, fire chief. "We don't know who's doing it. He could be standing right next to you and not even know it."
The school had security cameras in place, however they were in the process of having them replaced after a transformer blew, ruining the cameras and recorder.
Besides the two police vehicles, two of the village’s Public Works Department vehicles had windows smashed out.
All four were parked just west of Village Hall. One of the squad cars was extensively damaged, the other is being repaired.
In Fresno, CA, for the second time in a week, all the locks on a Carl's JR. Fast Food outlet were superglued. These actions were quiet, quick, and incredibly easy to pull off.
We hope it caused a headache for the owners and managers and forced them to shell out hundreds of dollars in repairs and insurance deductibles, in addition to the lost sales.
Take small and constant actions for animals in your own towns.ALF
People of the Valley,
Everywhere the desert of capital expands – we offer an oasis to drink from.
We, the Robin Hoods, take credit for providing the massive amounts of free food that was left in the Airport District park of Modesto California last week, early in the morning. The food we left ranged from rice, beans, and other staples, and was available free of charge to anyone who wished to take it. To make our intentions for the action clear, we left behind a banner at the scene which read, "Resist the Recession! - ROB THE RICH!" The food was appropriated from various capitalists - and was thus free (and very easy) to obtain.
We chose to distribute this food free of charge because the Airport District is one of the neighborhoods hit the worst by the ongoing recession. Our communities are suffering from homelessness and foreclosure, poverty and job layoffs, police brutality and environmental pollution. Let this act be just a note in the chorus of resistance that will soon bring this system down.
We believe that solidarity others means attack against common enemies. We have thus carried out this action not only to attack the capitalists directly and distribute food free of charge to our friends and neighbors, but also to denounce the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors, which recently voted down a needle exchange program that would help stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis and give direct aid to those addicted to various drugs. This decision directly affects those living in the Airport Neighborhood, as it is an area with a high amount of heroin use. We were also inspired to carry out this action by the recent case of Turlock man, Danny Armenta, 48, who was arrested after attempting to walk out of a store with over $100 in groceries. They can get one of us, but they can't get all of us. As the recession heats up - so must our resistance. From the ongoing job layoffs in the valley to the recent closing of Teel Middle School in Empire due to budget cuts, if we don't start fighting directly - soon we will have nothing left to fight for.
In solidarity with those from the streets of Greece, China, Iceland, Mexico, the United States and beyond who are fighting this monster we call capitalism.
The Robin Hoods
**** More of this would be amazing.
The school said the fights were "gang-related", then had to backpedal on that statement. A number of comments from students on the Gilroy Dispatch article also contradict this claim. GHS officials admit that there were no weapons used or significant injuries. Reportedly around 100 people, but possibly a lot more -- the majority of the school, according to one student, and official estimates always underestimate the participation in disorders -- participated in the second incident, mostly by throwing food, before it was broken up by police. "A lot of kids think this is a big joke, but it's not," groaned Principal James Maxwell in dismay.
Obviously, there are at least 11 kids who know this. As for the rest, was the creation of disorder in the prison-like institutional setting enjoyable? Why shouldn't it have been? Was it somehow planned to go down on the day the state reviewers came? In any case, students posting to the Dispatch website report a lot more disgust and fear towards the actions of police and administrators than any of their peers', "gang member" or no. The early dismissal was announced on the basis of alleged threats of drive-by shooting -- not very likely, with the school already crawling with cops; more likely in an attempt to spread terror among students and their families.
Of course, there is talk about gang members and illegal immigrants, about measures to control and discipline youth within the institution of school, or perhaps jail -- where is the line exactly? -- and prevent the formation of visible crews of any sort. In other words, restrictions on movement, expression and association, all in the name of rationality and the kids' best interest. What if their best interest is realized by actions like disrupting the institution shaping them to be cogs in the social machinery?
In resisting the institutions, not just schools but jails and nation-states, which keep us caged, struggle is never easy and always must deal with the problem of the ruling class's armed enforcers. We applaud the youth of Gilory, north side, south side, food fighters, whatever, who delivered this blow against their jailers' prestige, found enjoyment in disrupting the school day and got to leave early. As the corporate operators of a West Texas immigration prison and their allies in law enforcement recently found out, collective resistance to an institutional structure by its inmates can be extremely cost-effective (as much as $20 million in this case, in fact).
This fall GHS had a bit of scandal with an English teacher getting paid leave while being investigated by Gilroy Police, who determined she slapped or shoved 3 students in a class for English as a Second Language students.No more classes, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks!
For social war and collective action against all institutional frameworks!
