This was a senseless killing, an example of police brutality and use of extreme and excessive force. The officers involved, Chad Nordman and Mike Heron, need to be held accountable for their actions. These officers need to be prosecuted and incarcerated for the MURDER of USMC. CPL. Allan "AJ" DeVillena II
On that Veterans Day, the two rogue Palm Springs police officers MURDERED a Veteran of the Afghanistan War - Operation Enduring Freedom. CPL. Allan DeVillena II was excited as he was only months away prior to starting a new chapter in his life in which he was to pursue his college career. At only 22 years old, however, his life was cut short by the actions of the two high adrenaline, trigger-happy Palm Springs police officers.
We do know the truth. All those who have served with CPL. Allan "AJ" DeVillena II and everyone else who have known "AJ" all know his character. The Palm Springs police department has resorted to smear campaigns and defamation of character to the media because the profile that the Palm Springs police officers used to pre-judge CPL. Allan "AJ" DeVillena II does NOT match with what all know was the true character of AJ.
These tactics are NOT going to work as investigations and testimonials will show that "AJ" was a hardworking, fun-loving, charismatic and caring person whom was well loved by many. The fictitious observations, reports, press releases, etc. only add up to the Palm Springs police department's feeble attempt to cover up the murder of CPL. Allan "AJ" DeVillena II.
Please DO NOT let these men hide behind their badges. Please DO NOT let the Chief of Police Alberto Franz and Mayor Steve Pougnet cover up the MURDER of USMC CPL. Allan “AJ” DeVillena II. Both Chad Nordman and Mike Heron need to be prosecuted and incarcerated. They need to be held accountable for their actions!
Please help us obtain justice for the senseless killing of USMC CPL. Allan “AJ” DeVillena II.
