Toxicology report shows Terrence Crutcher was high on PCP when shot by Tulsa police officer

The officer, Betty Shelby, has been charged in the shooting. This, however could help her during her trial

Terence Crutcher, the drug-abusing felon who abandoned his running SUV in oncoming traffic before being shot by Tulsa Police officer Betty Shelby when she perceived that he was reaching into his vehicle, was in fact high on PCP when he ignored her commands.

Toxicology tests on the body of Terence Crutcher show he had PCP in his system on September 16, 2016, the day he was shot and killed by Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby.

Shelby is charged with manslaughter in his death.

Crutcher’s SUV was parked in the middle of the road when Shelby was responding to another call, records show. Police said the officer saw the vehicle, which witnesses say had its doors open, while en route to another call.

A witness told a 911 dispatcher that when she saw Crutcher by the vehicle, he was saying his car was going to blow up, and she thought he was “smoking something.”

The report also says Crutcher had “acute phencyclidine intoxication.” Phencyclidine is also called PCP.

The positive results could help Shelby’s defense in that she said she perceived Crutcher to be a threat to her safety.

Certainly this does not clear the officer, but it is important evidence. People high on drugs, especially drugs like PCP, which can cause hallucinations can be very dangerous indeed. Crutcher walked away from police, towards his vehicle, then began to reach inside his vehicle. People need to understand that an officer does not know what a suspect is reaching for when they attempt to reach into their car, or into their waist band, or pockets. A suspect who is reaching for a weapon can use that weapon very quickly. An officer who waits to see what is being reached for will likely come to a bad end. Actions tend to be quicker than reactions.

Crutcher’s death is sad. Even sadder if his drug abuse caused him to act as he did. And, again, all the evidence needs to be examined. But, anyone screaming about racism, or about police shooting an unarmed man needs to wait for all the evidence as well. The lynch mob mentality of the Black Lives Matter activists is not about justice, or examining evidence, or improving relations between minorities and police. It is about turning our justice system upside down, and hampering police in their duties.

Unarmed, of course does not mean what the Cult of Gun Control thinks it means

Police shoot an “unarmed” man…… That is the headline to any news story the media and Black Lives Matter can exploit. But being “unarmed” does not mean a person cannot be a threat to someone’s life does it? No!

A white police officer is back at work in northeast Mississippi, weeks after a grand jury declined to indict him in the shooting death of a black man who ran from a traffic stop.

City spokeswoman Leesha Faulkner confirmed Wednesday that Tyler Cook is carrying out administrative duties at the Tupelo Police Department.

Antwun “Ronnie” Shumpert died June 18 after police said he ran from a traffic stop and Cook and a police dog found him hiding under a house. An autopsy showed 37-year-old Shumpert was shot four times.

The shooting has prompted multiple protests, and Shumpert’s relatives are seeking $35 million in a federal lawsuit against the city of nearly 35,700 residents

Note the media played the race card eagerly, and early. But waited, of course, to add context late in the story

District Attorney John Weddle announced Aug. 1 that a grand jury found Cook “acted lawfully” and declined to indict him. Weddle said evidence showed Shumpert was shot four times at close range, consistent with Cook’s version of events that Shumpert had emerged from under a house and beat the officer, leading Cook to shoot Shumpert when the officer feared for his life.

Ah, adds a different perspective doesn’t it? Again, unarmed people kill people every day, yet the media spins the “unarmed” narrative for all it is worth. But as Bob Owens explains

There is a disturbing lack of sanity that has emerged in recent years which argues against all of human history that an “unarmed” person simply isn’t a dangerous threat. The media, community activists, attorneys, and politicians are asserting that regular citizens and law enforcement officers should be able to handle unarmed threats without firearms at all times. That certainly seems to be the argument made by Shumpert’s family and their fantasy-addicted attorney.

In a perfect world, fights would be scheduled among opponents of similar skill levels and abilities in their own weight classes, a referee would ensure the fight is fair, and their would be a ringside doctor.

Back here in reality, however, we know that isn’t often the case.

People come in every color, creed, shape, size and sex. They have wildly different levels of fitness, skill, training, levels of aggression, and mindset. Fights aren’t fair, and in the real world, one of the two combatants in the fight is often vastly superior to the other. More often than not, that person is also the aggressor. They typically take the initiative, establish dominance quickly, and if they are handled quickly, may quickly beat their opponent not just into submission, but into death.

According to the FBI, you’re twice as likely to be beat or stomped to death by an unarmed man than you are to be shot to death by someone armed with a rifle. your roughly twice as likely to be beaten to death than shot to death with a shotgun. You’re more likely to be beat or stomped to death by an unarmed man than someone armed with a club or hammer.

The media, naturally, will not be sharing those facts I would wager. After all, the narrative, not the facts matter

Gun Violence? Try Gang Violence!

The media would have us believe that the problem of dead bodies piling up at record rates in Chicago is “gun violence” John Kass, writing for the Chicago Tribune, calls BS on that narrative 

With at least 78 killed so far, August is the deadliest month in nearly 20 years, according to a Tribune analysis. It’s all but certain that the city’s homicide total will push beyond the 491 dead of last year.

Some call it “gun violence,” a definition greatly appreciated by Democratic politicians like those at City Hall. They can point to guns and take that voter anger over homicide numbers and channel it into a safe space.

But there are plenty of guns in the suburbs, and suburbanites aren’t slaughtering each other.

It’s the gang wars.

Politicians know that the gangs are reason for the deaths. Calling it “gun violence” is much safer, especially in wards where gangs often provide political muscle.

“Have you ever heard a Chicago alderman call out a street gang by name?” O’Connor asked. “No? Me neither.”

Do go read it all. Kass chronicles the changes in police tactics, and in police numbers. The fact is Chicago, with strict gun laws, is awash in murders, and the media and the Left prefers to blame guns, rather than gangs, and political corruption that neuters the police.

What the media likely will not tell you about the murder of Dwayne Wade’s cousin

All I heard the past two days was how many have died in Chicago from “gun violence”. Oh but of course we must blame the guns. A better term would be “gang violence”. Bob Owens has some perspectiveBob Owens has some perspective

A cousin of NBA basketball star Dwyane Wade was shot and killed by a pair of serial offenders in Chicago on Friday because the two thugs didn’t like it when a taxi driver dared to make eye contact with them.

A pair of brothers released from jail on parole have been charged with fatally shooting Nykea Aldridge, cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, in Chicago.

Darwin Sorells, 26, and 22-year-old brother Derren, who are both documented gang members, were charged with first-degree murder Sunday over the death of Aldridge, 32, a mother-of-four.

Both are repeat gun offenders, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson confirmed, and both were out on parole at the time of the killing.

Speaking about Darwin, Johnson said he is a six-time weapon offender who was jailed in 2013 for six years for another gun crime but released on parole in February.

Stop right there! Why was Darwin, why in the Blue Hell was this piece of trash out of prison, waking around? Sic weapons offenses, a gang member AND sentenced to six years less than three years ago? What is wrong with a justice system that releases a thug Like that early? His brother is also a repeat gun offender! Why the Hell was he out to predate on innocents? And why the Hell is no one talking about this? And why the Hell isn’t someone like Owens on CNN, or Fox talking about the reality of these predators?

The gang-banging Sorells brothers are part of a feral subculture within the larger American society that is predatory and nearly primal in how they view the world. In this instance, they decided to try to murder a man for being a stranger that made eye contact, which they took as a sign of challenging their dominance over what they viewed as their territory.

This is the sort of behavior we often associate with wild animals, but it is in fact the norm for much of human history, and is a current problem in many parts of the world even today.

The simple fact of the matter is that there are people who are predators by nature or nurture or a combination of the two, and they don’t think like you and I.

To them, violence is a tool, if not a form of currency.

They do not see other human beings as contributing members of society to be valued, but as either fellow predators to be either challenged or submitted to, or as prey to be exploited. Some of these people commit violent crime as a job. Others simply enjoy it.

This is a reality that your average citizen can’t or won’t admit exists, because it is terrifying. Admitting that this world exists is to admit that this is a serious problem. Even more worrying to a Disneyfied world is the realization that the only way to deal with this kind of threat is the sudden, precise, and overwhelming application of the tool of violence.

That my friends is the truth. There are bad people out there, people who will kill you, over nothing more than some perceived slight. As I have said numerous times to those fools who consider all violence to be somehow “equal”

Violence is neither good nor evil.

Violence is merely a tool.

Good people use the tool of violence all the time to save lives and prevent evil people from harming others. These practitioners of benevolent violence are members of our armed forces, law enforcement officers, and regular people just like you and I.

Concealed carry permit holders are the most law-abiding people in America

After you read this, ask yourself why the Left is so adamant about attacking gun rights. I think you know the answer already

Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.

“Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.

“We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”

Further damning is this stat, from states that do not require a permit to carry

“In 2014, the seven states that allowed concealed carry without a permit had much lower rates of murder and violent crime than did the seven jurisdictions with the lowest percentage of permit holders,” the Crime Prevention Research Center report reads. “Indeed, the murder rate was 31 percent lower in the states not requiring permits. The violent crime rate was 28 percent lower. Compared to the rest of the country, the 25 states with the highest rates of permit-holding experienced markedly lower rates of murder and violent crime.”

The Cult of Gun Control, of course, continues to lie. Consider Dan Gross of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence

“The fact is, despite the repugnant lies and wild west fantasies peddled by the corporate gun lobby, communities with a greater number of loaded, concealed guns are markedly more dangerous, and their citizens’ lives are at greater risk.

Well Dan, obviously you are ignorant or lying, and I would guess lying, deliberately, because the right of self-defense offends your collectivist mindset. The fact is as more and more guns are bought by law-abiding Americans violent crime rates, homicide rates, and accidental deaths by guns have all decreased, as has the rate of homicide by firearm. Numbers do not lie Dan, you do.

Unless Dan is talking about cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and DC, which have very strict gun laws, which disarm good people while doing nothing to stop gang bangers, and thugs from carrying concealed, loaded, and illegal guns, and committing crimes, then Dan is most definitely lying. Dan knows the truth, yet he lies anyway, again, ask yourself why.
