Beyond angry that anyone could hurt an older adult. All older adults here deserve the right to be safe, and treated with dignity & respect. I remember Mrs. Martha Medina killed last year during an apparent robbery outside a restaurant. Also during morning, daytime hours, in 1/2 https://t.co/TTBDlvs4J9— Ed Gonzalez (@SheriffEd_HCSO) June 4, 2022
