Alameda County, California – When the president of a police union shot and killed an unarmed 16-year-old girl and her unborn child, there were a number of things he did wrong leading up to her death, which included failing to turn on his Body Camera. But the one thing he did right in the eyes of law enforcement was to donate a significant amount of money to an influential campaign fund.
Sgt. Jeremy Miskella, president of the Fremont police union, donated $10,000 to the campaign of Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley in November, and she returned the favor by clearing him of all wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of Elena Mondragon, according to a report from the East Bay Express.
Mondragon was shot and killed by Miskella and Fremont Detective Joel Hernandez in March 2017 while she was sitting in the passenger seat of a car with her cousin and two of their friends.
