Video-Why do police officers sometime shoot “unarmed” people?

This video does a great job of illustrating how quickly an “unarmed” person can retrieve a firearm and fire

It should also be remembered that even unarmed people can and have attacked and killed police officers and civilians. Unarmed does not equate to non dangerous. One of the biggest reasons many people fall for the anti-police rhetoric of groups like BLM is that they do not have any idea what the reality is in many situations

There are some people who simply should never be police officers

No, in fact, I do not always defend police when they draw their weapons and use them. Someone accused me of this recently. What I do is wait for evidence before deciding whether or not the police were justified in using deadly force. I take that evidence, and rely on some folks more knowledgeable than me in use of force cases, and THEN I make a decision. Many times, in fact most of the time the facts destroy the types of narratives Black Lives Matter activists create and the media exploits for ratings. But in this case, I am horrified at the actions the police took. Bob Owens tells the sickening story of a six-year-old boy who paid the price for gross negligence and incompetence by two cops who will likely be in prison for a long time soon.

The body camera video released yesterday as evidence in the up-coming 2nd degree murder trials of two Louisiana police officers isn’t particularly graphic, but it nonetheless heartbreaking.

Police have released body camera footage showing two officers firing on a car and killing a six-year-old boy in Louisiana.

Jeremy Mardis was fatally shot by officers Derrick Stafford, 32, and Norris Greenhouse Jr, 23, last November in Marksville as they pursued his father, Chris Few.

The video from the body camera shown above shows the end of a several-mile police pursuit. What still isn’t clear almost a year after the incident is why Stafford and Greenhouse began the pursuit. Originally, they claimed that Few was wanted on an outstanding warrant, but he did not have any warrants out for his arrest.

In any event, Few fled officers, drove down a road that ended in a heavy metal gate access gate, and turned onto a narrow dead-end side road or driveway. Noticing that there was no outlet, Few put his vehicle into a reverse and began backing up.

A body camera worn by Sergeant Kenneth Purnell captured the video above and some audio of Stafford and Greenhouse firing.

Purnell’s body camera shows that Few was not backing up his vehicle towards officers or attempting to use it as a weapon. He was merely trying to escape.

There was no plausible legal reason for them to open fire as the vehicle was backing up.

More chillingly, it shows that they continued to fire even after Few had his hands raised and the vehicle had stopped. Stafford and Greenhouse fired a total of 18 rounds into the vehicle. Few was hit twice and critically injured.

Few’s son, six-year-old Jeremy Stafford, was struck five times in the back seat of the vehicle and was killed instantly.

Not only was their decision to shoot completely unjustifiable, their accuracy was horrific, spraying the entire passenger compartment of the vehicle, hitting and killing a small boy several feet removed from their target at relatively close range, inside 10 yards.

Horrific, absolutely sickening. The vast majority of police take their duty seriously, and only use deadly force when they are compelled to by a suspect. As I said in most cases the police use such force in a proper manner. These two? They deserve what is coming

LSU Not Sure Who To Hire After Discovering Coach Eric Taylor Is Not A Real Person – Sports Pickle
.

.
LSU is reportedly scrambling to identify a long-term replacement for Les Miles after finding out that the program’s №1 choice, Eric Taylor, is a fictional person from a television show.

Athletic director Joe Alleva fired Miles after Saturday’s loss to Auburn because he was confident he could lure the dynamic East Dillion Lions coach from rural Texas to Louisiana for the bright lights of the SEC. But according to sources, soon after terminating Miles, Alleva was unable to get Taylor on the phone and then ultimately discovered the coach was a character played by Kyle Chandler, a 51-year old actor from Buffalo. Panicked, Alleva then hired Ed Orgeron as LSU’s interim head coach.

“Joe thought ‘Friday Night Lights’ was a documentary,” said a prominent LSU booster. “We all did. It was very realistic and gritty. We wanted Eric and Tammy Taylor here and thought we were going to have a home run hire. Instead, we have Ed Orgeron. I’m worried we made a big mistake.”…

Aleppo 2.0: Gary Johnson Can’t Name A Single Foreign Leader – Washington Times

Call it Aleppo 2.0.

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson repeatedly blanked when asked Wednesday by MSNBC host Chris Matthews “who’s your favorite foreign leader?”

In a memory freeze lasting almost a minute, Mr. Johnson could not name a single foreign leader without prompting by his running mate, William Weld.

“I guess I’m having ‘an Aleppo moment’ in the former president of Mexico,” said Mr. Johnson.

The former governor of New Mexico, an admitted marijuana smoker, embarrassed himself in an interview earlier this month, asking “and what is Aleppo?” when asked what he would do about the bloody Syrian-Russian offensive against that city.

As Mr. Johnson acknowledged forgetting a name, an incredulous Mr. Matthews said, “I’m giving you the whole world; anybody in the world you like. Anybody.”

Mr. Johnson repeated “the former president of Mexico,” prompting Mr. Matthews to ask “which one?” to Mr. Johnson’s further stammer.

Mr. Weld then tried to help out his ticket-mate, saying “Fox? Zedillo?” at which point Mr. Johnson said he meant Vicente Fox, who was president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006 and whom Mr. Johnson called “terrific.”…

Nothing James Comey Says About The Hillary Clinton Investigation Makes Any Sense – David Harsanyi
.

.
Rather than striking immunity deals with virtually every person who had intimate knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private server and emails, the Justice Department would have saved everyone some time by offering Hillary protection instead.

FBI Director James Comey, who testified in front of two congressional committees this week, still maintains he was unable to recommend that the Justice Department charge Clinton with mishandling classified documents because of insufficient evidence proving “intent” – although the actions themselves are irrefutably illegal.

Well, how exactly did he anticipate gathering this proof when the Justice Department had proactively shielded the five people tasked with setting up the private system and then destroying it? Was he hoping to extract a confession directly from Hillary?…

Intel Sources: Obama, Clinton Ran Weapons To ISIS – Conservative Base

Although the news media and Democrats believe government control of guns owned by Americans is politically necessary, what may be equally important is the investigation into the President Barack Obama-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegal weapons deal in Libya that helped to arm the Syrian-based Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The thinking in 2012 was that the fall of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad made a U.S.-Muslim terrorist alliance worth the few negative news stories or Republican criticisms

“Let’s be honest with ourselves: Obama and Clinton knew they can pull off any scam on Americans with little if any backlash. They learned it through experience,” said former military intelligence operative and police counter-terrorism unit member, Josiah Mallensky. “Even today – in the midst of a presidential election – a large number of voters will turn a blind eye to ‘crooked Hillary’s’ shenanigans past, present and future,” he added.

U.S. intelligence documents released to a government watchdog have confirmed suspicions that the United States and some of its so-called coalition partners had actually facilitated the rise of al-Qaida in Iraq (AQII) which became ISIS as an effective adversary against the government of the Syrian dictator President Assad. In addition, ISIS members were initially trained by members and hired contractors from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at facilities in Jordan in 2012. The original goal was to weaken the Syrian government which had engaged in war crimes against their own people, according to a number of reports…

US Secretary of State John Kerry has threatened to cut all diplomatic ties with Russia, in a bleak deterioration in US-Russia relations this week.

The US State Department confirmed that Kerry issued an ultimatum to his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, warning him that unless Russian and Syrian bombardment of Aleppo ends, relations between Moscow and Washington D.C. would revert to Cold War levels.

Convicted Pedophile Endorses Hillary – Daily Caller

Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, Democratic Party acting chair Donna Brazile and now former Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) all refuse to disavow the Democratic nominee’s endorsement by the chairman of the Communist Party USA.

But are they willing to at least reject the endorsement, albeit lukewarm, quietly offered by convicted pedophile Nicholas Puner this weekend? In his letter just published by the the New York Times Sunday Review “Reader Roundup” section he argued Clinton is the lesser of two evils.

Puner was responding to another reader’s letter that Trump’s candidacy portended the “twilight of democracy.”

“In the end no matter how unenthusiastic one may be about Hillary Clinton she is the better choice. Those disappointed and disaffected by the menu offered are still obligated to come to the table and partake in what is available,“ Puner wrote.

Hillary’s supporter “was the chairman of the New Castle Planning Board – which oversees Chappaqua, NY, where Bill and Hillary Clinton live – when he was busted” in 1999 for having sex with two teenage boys, the New York Post reports. He served sixty days in jail but later did nearly three years in the slammer for sexually explicit online chats with an undercover cop posing as a 14-year-old boy…

Notorious Weasel: Don’t Call Us Weasels, We Are Not Weasels – Wall Street Journal

The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation sparred repeatedly with Republican lawmakers Wednesday as they questioned the handling of the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State.

The FBI announced in July that investigators found extremely careless conduct in Mrs. Clinton’s handling of sensitive government information under the email arrangement, but also concluded that no reasonable prosecutor would have brought a case under the circumstances. Conservatives have been highly critical of the FBI for not pursuing the case more aggressively and for not recommending prosecution of Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president.

That criticism has intensified in recent days when it was revealed that the Justice Department granted partial immunity to some witnesses, including Clinton aide and attorney Cheryl Mills, to get access to data or testimony…

Senate Overrides Obama’s Veto Of Bill Allowing 9/11 Families To Sue Saudi Arabia – Breitbart

The Senate acted decisively Wednesday to override President Barack Obama’s veto of Sept. 11 legislation, setting the stage for the contentious bill to become law despite flaws that Obama and top Pentagon officials warn could put U.S. troops and interests at risk.

Five weeks before elections, lawmakers refused to oppose a measure backed by 9/11 families who say they are still seeking justice 15 years after the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. The bill permits them to sue the government of Saudi Arabia for the kingdom’s alleged backing of the 19 hijackers who carried out the plot. Saudi Arabia is staunchly opposed to the measure.

Senators voted 97-1 to override Obama’s veto. The lone “no” vote was Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

A House vote on Obama’s veto was expected later in the day Wednesday. If the House also overrides, the bill becomes law. During his nearly two terms in office, Obama has never had a veto overridden by Congress.

Despite reversing Obama’s decision, several senators said defects in the bill could open a legal Pandora’s box, triggering lawsuits from people in other countries seeking redress for injuries or deaths caused by military actions in which the U.S. may have had a role.

In a letter delivered Tuesday to Senate leaders, Obama said the bill would erode sovereign immunity principles that prevent foreign litigants “from second-guessing our counterterrorism operations and other actions that we take every day.”…

Hillary Received Debate Questions Week Before Debate, According To Sources – USA Politics Now

The first presidential debate was held and Hillary Clinton was proclaimed the winner by the media. Indeed Clinton was able to turn in a strong debate performance, but did she do so fairly? Multiple reports and leaked information from inside the Clinton camp claim that the Clinton campaign was given the entire set of debate questions an entire week before the actual debate.

Earlier last week an NBC intern was seen hand delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign headquarters, according to sources. The package was not given to secretarial staff, as would normally happen, but the intern was instead ushered into the personal office of Clinton campaign manager Robert Mook. Members of the Clinton press corps from several media organizations were in attendance at the time, and a reporter from Fox News recognized the intern, but said he was initially confused because the NBC intern was dressed like a Fed Ex employee.

The reporter from Fox questioned campaign staff about the intern, but campaign staff at first claimed ignorance and then claimed that it was just a Fed Ex employee who had already left. No reporters present who had seen the intern dressed as a Fed Ex employee go into Mook’s office saw him leave by the same front entrance. The Fox reporter who recognized the intern also immediately looked outside of the campaign headquarters and noted that there were no Fed Ex vehicles parked outside.

Clinton seemed to have scripted responses ready for every question she was asked at the first debate. She had facts and numbers memorized for specific questions that it is very doubtful she would have had without being furnished the questions beforehand. The entire mainstream media has specifically been trying to portray Trump as a racist and a poor candidate…

World’s First Baby Born With New “3 Parent” Technique – New Scientist

It’s a boy! A five-month-old boy is the first baby to be born using a new technique that incorporates DNA from three people, New Scientist can reveal. “This is great news and a huge deal,” says Dusko Ilic at King’s College London, who wasn’t involved in the work. “It’s revolutionary.”

The controversial technique, which allows parents with rare genetic mutations to have healthy babies, has only been legally approved in the UK. But the birth of the child, whose Jordanian parents were treated by a US-based team in Mexico, should fast-forward progress around the world, say embryologists.

The boy’s mother carries genes for Leigh syndrome, a fatal disorder that affects the developing nervous system. Genes for the disease reside in DNA in the mitochondria, which provide energy for our cells and carry just 37 genes that are passed down to us from our mothers. This is separate from the majority of our DNA, which is housed in each cell’s nucleus.

Around a quarter of her mitochondria have the disease-causing mutation. While she is healthy, Leigh syndrome was responsible for the deaths of her first two children. The couple sought out the help of John Zhang and his team at the New Hope Fertility Center in New York City.

Zhang has been working on a way to avoid mitochondrial disease using a so-called “three-parent” technique. In theory, there are a few ways of doing this. The method approved in the UK is called pronuclear transfer and involves fertilising both the mother’s egg and a donor egg with the father’s sperm. Before the fertilised eggs start dividing into early-stage embryos, each nucleus is removed. The nucleus from the donor’s fertilised egg is discarded and replaced by that from the mother’s fertilised egg…

Black Man Who Dislikes Cops Overwhelmed By White Police Officer’s Act Of Kindness – WorldNetDaily

Mark Ross – a black man in Indiana who says he dislikes cops – tragically learned his 15-year-old sister was killed in a car accident and was determined to get to his mother in Detroit on Sept. 25, but Ross was dumbfounded by a white state trooper’s kind act after a traffic stop.

Ross had begged a friend to drive him to Detroit at 3 a.m. According to his Facebook post, he and his friend sped through Ohio, hoping to reach Ross’ mother as quickly as possible.

Then the two spotted flashing red and blue lights behind the vehicle.

“I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant,” Ross wrote.

That’s when Ohio State Trooper J. Davis pulled over the car and discovered that the driver had both a suspended license and an outstanding warrant. The driver was taken into custody, and his car was towed, according to Cleveland’s WJW-TV 8.

Hillary Failed To Take Highest Security Training At State Department In 2009 – Daily Caller

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton failed to complete the highest level of security training mandated by the Department of State for the proper handling of the government’s most secret documents when she entered the department in 2009, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation under the Freedom of Information Act.

The State Department released 46 pages of previously unseen documents Tuesday under a Sept. 20, 2016, order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon.

Revealed: Britain’s Immigration Crisis Laid Bare As 12,000 Asylum Seekers Vanish – Daily Express

An investigation has shown that of 77,440 asylum cases in progress, one in six skipped their first meeting with border chiefs and vanished.

The 11,988 include migrants seized and held while trying to sneak into the UK but who have subsequently given authorities the slip.

There was anger last night at the laxness of Charlie Elphicke, the Tory MP for Dover, said: “It is very concerning that some 12,000 asylum seekers failed to turn up for interview.

“We need to know if the Government has lost track of them. We must be sure we don’t have a situation where vulnerable people are dragged into the black economy and become victims of slavery. “This is why it is so important these people are found.”

The UK’s booming black economy is estimated to be worth £150billion, supporting at least 1.1 million people who could be here illegally.

The scale of those who have disappeared from under the noses of immigration officials emerged after the Daily Express asked to know the whereabouts of five Iranians who sailed here in a dinghy.

They were held after being caught in Winchelsea, East Sussex, in July. Almost two months later no one has been able to officially confirm where they are.

Game-Changing Document Surfaces About Keith Lamont Scott That Explodes Charlotte Shooting Narrative – IJR

UN Panel: U.S. Owes Black People Reparations For History Of Slavery – Breitbart

A United Nations-affiliated group in Geneva is calling for the U.S. to give African Americans reparations for the country’s history of slavery, according to a recent report by the group.

The group’s statement was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a group that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights, The Washington Post reported.

The group of experts, made up of leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings about the link between the U.S.’s history of slavery and present injustices, such as the recent police shootings of African Americans to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”

The panel said that the police shootings of African Americans during the past year have caused a “human rights crisis” that is in urgent need of addressing and compared the recent shootings to the acts of lynchings by white supremacists in the late 1800s.

The group said the reparations could come in a variety of forms, such as “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities… psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”…

‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed’s Father Files Lawsuit Against Glenn Beck, Ben Shapiro, Others – Breitbart

Feds Spend $149,921 For LGBT Students To ‘Feel Comfortable’ In Engineering Class – Washington Free Beacon

The National Science Foundation is spending roughly $150,000 to make college engineering programs “inclusive” to LGBT students.

Researchers who were awarded money for a new study this month will hold focus groups with lesbian and gay students in Massachusetts to learn how engineering culture can be changed to make LGBT students “feel comfortable.”

“This project aims to understand the conditions that help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) engineering students feel comfortable in their educational institutions,” a grant for the project states. “Engineering schools are notoriously inhospitable to LGBTQ people, with costly results for LGBTQ students and society.”

Researchers at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute say that engineering programs full of straight students are “less creative.”

“The emotional toll of being an LGBTQ engineer (either open or closeted) is so great that it threatens to drive LGBTQ engineers out of the field,” the grant states. “Their departure from engineering for reasons that have nothing to do with qualification only makes the field more homogenous and therefore less creative, innovative, and risk-taking, at the same time diminishing a population that is already underrepresented in engineering.”

The study will begin in January and is slated to continue through December 2018. The project has cost taxpayers $149,921 so far.

The researchers say that not enough study has been dedicated to how LGBT engineering students feel…

Lawyer Goes Nuts, Randomly Shoots At People In Houston – Houston Chronicle

A disgruntled lawyer wearing military-style apparel with old Nazi emblems had two weapons and more than 2,500 rounds of live ammunition when he randomly shot at drivers in a Houston neighborhood Monday before he was shot and killed by police, authorities said.

Nine people were injured during Monday morning’s shootings on the street in front of a condo complex; six were shot and three had eye injuries from flying glass. One person was in critical condition and another in serious condition, officials said.

Houston Homicide Capt. Dwayne Ready and Interim Police Chief Martha Montalvo did not identify the man and did not have information about a motive. A bomb-squad robot examined a Porsche that police said belonged to the gunman; Texas motor vehicle records in a commercially available database showed the car is licensed to Nathan DeSai at an address in the condo complex.

The property manager of the condo complex also confirmed that police were going through DeSai’s residence, where Ready said vintage military items dating to the Civil War and other guns were found in the man’s apartment.

Authorities first received reports of the shootings about 6:30 a.m., and the man began firing at officers when they arrived.
