Heck, there's a video contained within a thread on ATS showing a man with no shirt on, holding his hands above his head and he was still shot dead.
Cops said his hands being over his head was a threat as I recall. Seems to me it was in California but I could be wrong.
I've spoken with numerous former LEOs over the past few days. One is a retired police chief. He has watched the video and has about the same
critique as the YouTube made by a former LEO. "Most messed-up thing I've ever witnessed." was one of his milder comments. Admitting that training is
different these days, he also admits to never having fired his weapon in the line of duty in 27 years of service. Says he only drew it from his
holster half a dozen times in his entire career. A lot of the fellows at the shooting range are retired LEOs and military and share the opinion that
things are out of hand. "Too many 'roided-up psychos" as one former KSP Captain put it.
I think that is reason we're seeing the rise of groups like Oathkeepers. The only problem I see with those organizations is the issue of politics
gets inserted and diverts attention from the real issues.
Was there a stolen handgun in his pocket? I don't know.
Was there a gun in his pocket at all? I don't know.
Do I believe the same FBEyes that told the tall tales about Randy Weaver? No.
Do I believe the same DOJ that told the tall tales about Waco? No.
Their record for truthfulness isn't good. Nor is, apparently, the records of some of the federal prosecutors involved in the Hammond case.
This story leads to several others....see sidebar.
And this prosecutor has mental issues evidently....also involved in the Hammond case
The health issue seems to be that she is crazy as a betsy bug if what her employees allege is true. Oh, excuse me, she suffers from PTSD which
compelled her to send hundreds of text messages to one of her subordinates at all times of the night.... That's very common with people who suffer
PTSD isn't it?
This whole nest of vipers seems ready to erupt. Time to pop the zit and let the corruption drain.
Could anyone blame the people if they took tar and feathers and headed out for the liars and criminals in government?
