This video is of a man who attacked a person in a soup kitchen, fled on foot to a bridge, this bridge is between Iowa and Illinois, he was tased, taser didn't work, man decked policeman , other policeman from other state passing by assisted officer and shot and killed man attacking police.

Policemen have got to know this tasing doesn't always work, and it does make for a mad mad suspect

So a man's dead. Shot dead. Tasered. He retaliates to the tasering. The other cop shot him.

No trial. No sentence, other than 'you are dead if you fail to bow down to some guy of questionable intelligence, ethics and morals who just happens to wear a uniform '.

Makes a real mockery out of the jailing of those who assist the sick, elderly, suffering, pain-ridden and dying to die, doesn't it ?

Makes a mockery out of sanctimonious claims about 'sanctity of life'.

Makes a mockery out of arrests, trials, sentencing.

Makes a mockery out of the Commandment 'Thou shalt not kill'.

And confirms for those who didn't already suspect it, that 'police' are a gang of armed individuals who will KILL anyone who questions the judgement and rights of any member of that uniformed-gang.

Was the man retaliating against similar injustice in the soup kitchen, perhaps ? Had someone stolen something which belonged to him, or insulted or even struck him ?

We'll never know, will we. Because 'the truth' has now become the property of the uniformed-gang members who first tortured then killed him. And that's 'justice' American style, something with which we're all becoming sadly familiar.

AT 9:11 P.M.: A man with a history of violence is dead and an officer is injured after a shooting Friday morning on the Centennial Bridge.

Steven Tyrone Mallory, 39, of Davenport, died after he was shot by Davenport police officer Clif Anderson about 11:20 a.m., Police Chief Frank Donchez said. Anderson, 41, is recovering from his injuries.

The incident began when the Davenport officer stopped the suspect in the middle of the bridge to question him regarding an assault 15 minutes earlier at the Cafe on Vine coffee shop, a free meal site at 932 W. 6th St., officials said.

The victim of the assault was a 53-year-old Scott County man who was volunteering at the cafe. The volunteer was hit on the head and taken to Genesis Medical Center-West Central Park, Davenport, for treatment of injuries. A citizen followed the suspect to the Centennial Bridge.

Anderson, a 14-year veteran of the force, crossed the bridge, turned around in Rock Island and then returned to talk to Mallory in the middle of the span.

Anderson told Mallory to get down on his knees several times, orders that Mallory did not heed, according to police officials and video released Friday. The officer deployed his Taser, which appeared to have no effect on the suspect because one of the two prongs missed him and the electrical connection was not completed, Davenport police Capt. David Struckman said.

Mallory then attacked Anderson, punching the officer, biting the officer's face and slamming the officer's head against the concrete, officials said. The suspect was on top of the officer and choking him when East Moline police Det. Jim Weakley arrived on the scene.

The Davenport police officer unholstered his gun and shot the suspect, Donchez said. Officials declined to say how many times the suspect was shot. They released a portion of the video taken from the police car. However, officials chose to stop the video portion before the shooting occurred.

Police said they believed Mallory was unarmed.

Both men were taken to Genesis Medical Center, East Rusholme Street, Davenport. Mallory died there. Anderson was released after treatment of injuries to his head and torso.

Struckman credited Weakley with saving Anderson from further harm or worse.

"His quick action, without hesitation, undoubtedly saved officer Anderson from serious injury or death and he needs to be commended for taking that action," Struckman said.

"We extend a collective 'thank you' from the Davenport Police Department to detective Weakley and the East Moline Police Department."

The incident closed the Centennial Bridge for several hours.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office will be the lead agency investigating the incident, assisted by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, officials said. An internal review also is under way.

Mallory's record of violence goes back several years.

He went to prison in the mid-1990s on drug and assault charges. The assault was against three Davenport police officers who went to Mallory's home to arrest him for an earlier assault. He refused to be handcuffed. Officers sprayed him with pepper spray, and Mallory charged at the officers. In the ensuing fight, one officer received a bruised back, broken glasses, a scraped arm and a bite on his arm. A second officer was cut on the head. A third officer's thumb was smashed.

More recently, according to police records, Mallory was charged with two counts of domestic assault in January after he hit his aunt in the face, which caused her to fall and break her hip. He was living with her at the time. He then beat his cousin, who attempted to intervene, chasing him around the house, kicking him in the chest and stomach, police said.

The last fatal officer-involved shooting in Davenport was in 2007, records show. Frank Elfgen was shot in February 2007 after officers responded to a call about Elfgen threatening to kill himself at his home.

If it weren't for the fact that he had a taser, the first cop would have shot him. The taser is supposed to be a non-lethal alternative for situations where otherwise they would have to use lethal force.

The definition of authority.

Sorry, I have no problem with police shooting him.

He bit the hand that was feeding him. He died. End of story.

While you are badmouthing the police, where would you be without them?

Sure, they are just another gang, but a gang that mostly protects people.

This story echo's slightly with a story i have just read in a Red Top newspaper over here in ther UK. Just another reason not to allow all British Police officers to carry guns

PS: Sorry not trying to hijack the OP's thread , but as a long time lurker and new contributor i cannot yet post my own threads.

Here's the link

And the story if the link isn't allowed


DISABLED Steve Gardner was surrounded by cops wielding Taser guns after they spotted him holding a SPATULA.Steve, 55, who uses the kitchen tool to open his letters, was on his doorstep waiting for the post.

He has limited use of both hands after he was injured in a car crash.

But police, who were cruising the area looking for a stolen van, swooped and ordered him to "drop the weapon".

They then confiscated it and have refused to let Steve have it back.

Salesman Steve, of Torquay, Devon, said last night: "I use the spatula to open my letters, as a shoe-horn and to scratch my back. It can also ice a cake."

"I could not believe what was going on. I said, 'It's not a weapon, it's a spatula'.

"I don't have full use of my hands so I need it. I was angry and scared. Who wouldn't be?"

Inspector Jon Perry, of Torquay police, said officers thought they saw Steve with a bread knife.

He said: "By having it in a public place it was an offensive weapon.

"We considered it to be a bread knife with the serrated edges removed and sharpened."

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

He had already attacked a person and now he is attacking a cop. The guy got what he deserved.
