If they refuse to cooperate with police then leave them for their families to care for. Why should taxpayers pay for airlifting the scumbag to a hospital then foot the bill for treatment?

And then the next day or more another shooting will take place in retaliation for this one and it goes on and on. Who is raising these people?

the gang bangers are always American citizens, Believe me I take care of them at one of the trauma centers in the ICU in San Jose, including this guy. The illegal immigrants are almost all hard working people. They are more productive citizens than half the lazy teens I see just 'hangin out' these days with no jobs because they go to school, like thats an excuse. And to be airlifted costs between $30-50,000. No one pays for it. CALSTAR writes it off as a loss.
