College cops threatened because of response to man in military uniform


STOCKTON - Campus police at Delta College in Stockton said they've never experienced such anger after hearing more than a few anonymous phone calls of hatred and threats.

"We've been getting calls from callers, claiming they're former military, telling us to watch our backs, if they see us on the streets, to watch out," Delta Officer Jim Bock said.

It was last week when college cops arrested one of the two veterans who confronted a man on campus who was dressed head to toe in military clothing. Kristopher VIeira was allegedly so confrontational that he was charged with disturbing the peace and making threats. Vieira and the other man insisted the man was not in the military and was violating the law by dressing that way.

San Joaquin County district attorney candidate has troubled past


STOCKTON - After not returning phone calls from News10 for weeks, San Joaquin County district attorney candidate Gary Hickey was finally tracked down Monday morning leaving a downtown Stockton bar.

"Here's the reason: it's St. Patrick's Day and I'm politicking," Hickey said, adding he'd had just half a beer.

Hickey is a defense attorney. He's had several legal issues both in and out of the courtroom. Last August, he was charged with hit and run after crashing a car into a telephone pole and leaving the scene.

"Why does everyone want to talk about that? The D.A. office dismissed it," Hickey said, who pleaded no contest to the charge. If he pays restitution in May as scheduled, the case will then be considered dismissed.

Although the group meets once a month, trustees voted a few years ago to receive the health care benefits, a decision that was criticized last year by a civil grand jury.

"At this agency, public service has morphed into a sense of entitlement. It flies in the face of civic duty," David Renison with the San Joaquin Taxpayers Association said.

Man in military clothing confronted by veterans in Stockton


STOCKTON - A man wearing military clothing on the San Joaquin Delta College campus this week has stirred controversy.

Those who have confronted him said they're certain he didn't serve in the military and they consider his clothing choice disrespectful, even illegal. The man insists he served in the military, police said, and he's been seen on campus several times.

"Until you've gone through basic training and had a drill sergeant yelling at you, doing pushups and losing blood, sweat and tears, and you're missing your girlfriend and family, you have no business wearing that uniform," said Delta student Nicholas Teausant, who serves in the National Guard.
