The whole incident began when Brock’s father, Paul Guzman’s put Brock in their 2001 Corolla and started the engine and went back into the house to get some belongings and his older son (no mention of which of the older two sons it was, other than it was the one who attends school 40 miles away in Napa. It was then, at that exact moment that a car thief hopped in and drove off with the car and Brock in the back seat in the early morning hours of April 20.
When the police arrived, Suzanne Brock, Brock’s mother decided that she was not going to let the police into her home to search for Brock. For some reason she didn’t realize that the more she stood her ground the more suspicious she seemed.
It is hard to take Suzanne’s side after watching the video, as her constant profanity and screaming about them not entering the house makes it all about her and not her missing son.
With all the protesting she does, you can’t help but wonder, as I assume the police must have, if Brock wasn’t really in the house or which I believe is more likely, there was something in the house she didn’t want them to see.
Was there maybe a small marijuana plant growing in the closet, or an unregistered handgun? There must have been something there that she was worried about the police finding because I just can’t believe that she would feel the need to stand up for her constitutional rights at a time like this. What parent would be concerned about their 4th amendment rights when their child is missing and in possible danger. Maybe one that had something to hide inside their house?
There are many, many families of missing children who have opened up their homes to the police even though it is obvious the child is not there, just so the police can do their procedure and move to the next step of the investigation.
“Here’s what I think, you do what the police ask, or suffer the consequences…if they step on your rights, you can deal with that at a later time…but her child was missing? she should have just let them in if she was innocent so the police could rule her out and move on to what really happened…her actions caused the police to focus on her, when they could have been searching other avenues,” Kim posted on Facebook.
“I think it’s her right to refuse access to anyone – including police – into her home. It’s called the 4th amendment. BUT, I think it’s an unwise decision on her part. I agree with her in theory, but in this situation she really should’ve been more helpful. Something stinks,” posted Lucy.
During that meeting with the media, Brock’s father, Paul Guzman told the media that the reason the police could not come into the house was because they had a dog that would bite. Guzman’s Facebook page shows he owns a pit bull named Oso (bear).
