Omar’s Wireless in Rialto burned down

Last night between 4-5 am a fire was initiated at Omar’s Wireless on foothill and Meridian in Rialto.

By 6 pm the wireless services store was completely burned down. And by 11 its was being reported on abc7.

Owned and operated by Omar himself and his nephew, the wireless store was much more than a regular store for the Rialto community. 

Over the years the wireless store has simply become known as “Omar’s.”

“Omar’s,”Referring to him personally, because if you ever had any type of wireless issue, concern, or wish from barter to trade, sale or purchase, you could be confident that Omar got you.

I drove by the store today for a personal look at the news I had heard.  Rialto Police, caution-tape, abc 7 news cameras, and about 50 on lookers surrounded the store.

The store was toast and smelled liked gas vapors. Omar looked so sad as spoke to Rialto arson and police detectives.

As he caught a break in questioning to smoke a cigarette by woodys bbq. I gave em dap, shook my head, and told him to hold his head as he shook it disgustly.

As a Rialto native and community member Omars store burning felt  kind of personal because I know the dude. Everybody knows the dude.  Hell help anybody and everybody without a lot of the wireless hassle, bullshit, and overpricing you get from other stores.

Omars is in a thuggy part of Rialto so I’ve seen him thug it out with any thug, hood, loud-mouth that provoke him. But he definitely a good dude.

That’s fucked up that someone may have burnt his shit down and its fucked up if it may have burnt on its own because in either event “Omars” is burnt down.

I expect fights, arguments, and craziness, and some mild rickety to go on in Omars but I never expected his shit to burn down.

So just as a positive affirmation amidst all the negativity that may circle Omars and his businesses reputation I’d like to acknowledge Omar personally along with his store as an iconic figure and landmark in Rialto city.

Hold your head Omar. My sympathy and my respect.

    Omar is one of the kindest and most generous people Anyone could ever have the pleasure to know. He helps anyone in need and asks nothing in return. Those people responsible for starting the fire , should be ashamed and BEG for his forgiveness. Omar did not deserve this act Evil and from these SPINELESS COWARDS.
