30 LAPD Officers Gun Down Man In Middle Of Freeway...

Post by Rabbi Dali Rick » Mon May 24, 2010 9:13 am

Once again the Los Angeles Police department has murdered another citizen. 30 police shot a bi-polar man down in a hail of bullets. They claim he was wielding a knife. A fucking knife, Shit if 30 police were that scared of one man with a knife, this can only be classified as a Gangland style murder. Next time they should call me, I'm pretty sure I could have taken him down by myself. This is getting too common, who's next?

Well at least he wasn't as dangerous as the fucking homeless woman wielding a screwdriver.



We need to take the guns from the police, like the Bobbies in London, because clearly they are not capable of making that life or death decision on their own. Only a SWAT style unit should actually be allowed to carry wepons of leathal force.

Damn!

Amazes me every time I hear about abuse of power.

the kicker is I am willing to bet 100 bucks against your dollar that no charges will stem from this at all.

The officer that they were referring to, as being injured in the fray, actually was an overweight officer, who slipped on the pavement after he struggled to get his fat ass, out of the car, and trying to take cover from the guy with the knife. That was shown live on the news, last night, as we watched the chase. That is not in any of the footage they are showing this morning. I guess it's easier to justify the shooting, if it sounds like the officers were somehow injured or in danger during the incident. I think the only thing that officer had to fear was, a sale at Krispy Kreme.

>>>>We need to take the guns from the police<<<<

so only criminals have weapons.?. LAPD has a tough job, taking their weapons away won't help. i worked as a paramedic for LA City Fire, and we would be fired at while on scene, regularly. LAPD would consistantly be there watching our backs....

we were watching as the man was exiting the car, he seemed dazed and confused, talking incoherently. I have seen this behavior before in bi-polar and CI patients. At this point i'm pretty sure they won't say it was due to a medical condition because it would look to suspicious.

Sorry Misfit, I totally disagree. I think the normal beat cop should be armed only with non-leathal weapons, and if they do carry one it should be locked in the trunk and used for emergencies only. It should only be unlocked by a remote trigger activated from HQ by a watch commander.

We have SWAT to deal with anything above that.

Your line of thinking is like a kid, with a bat who keeps hitting other kids in the playground upside the head, instead of taking the bat away you justify him keeping it because there was a bear attack once, several years ago. But we know for sure he's hitting all the kids upside the head now, and should be stopped.

If you're stupid enough to pull a knife on 30 guys with guns you probably deserve to get shot. Seriously... I'm glad our police officers hold their safety in higher regard than the lives of scum like this.

Mentally ill people often do things like this.

All these cops and no one can find a stick?
Or a net?

And every time someone gets shot like this, cops will get shot next time around, no waiting.
No one will believe they won't shoot after that.

I've seen this pattern for a long time.
Don't cops notice it?

I had a friend who served on a Grand Jury for a similar incident here in the bay area. The prosecutor kept steering the grand jury down the path of not bringing charges against officers. A grand jury can call witnesses and ask questions. My friend, in an attempt to get a complete story, did just that, and the prosecutor got the judge to remove him from the grand jury.

So, I'll join you on that bet. No charges will steam for this.

OK WHO PEED IN THE POOL? ...

It just so happens I was pulled over today by the LAPD after returning equipment for an interview shoot with Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and it did end on a happy note we didn't get shot. They claimed the driver was on the phone, and i didn't have my seatbelt on. These were both blatant lies, and they told them to our faces like they were actual facts.

First, my friend who was driving, needed to make a call, he has ADD, so he pulled over to a complete stop, made his call, and we continued further down a block, made a legal lefthand u-turn from a left hand turn lane, at a green light, and was about to park 1/2 block down, my friend said, through his rear view mirror, he actually saw them pull out into their oncoming traffic, from the from behind another car, almost colliding with oncoming traffic, making a right in front of the car that they had just pulled from behind, almost hitting oncoming traffic going in the same direction we were, before pulling us over. Two officers got out, with hands on their weapons, and asked for both our id's. Papers in order, they let us go. Now mind you I am a seatbelt freak to the nth degree, i insist that everyone in the car is belted before the car moves, not for the law, but because it may be the difference between being carried away, and walking away from an accident. (i digress) when they had gotton our id's, i asked why they pulled us over, and he exclaimed. "Your homey there, was yakking on his cellphone, and your seatbelt was not on". What do you think i said to him?....

Video system
Built for racing
Often used for accident record and police encounters.
Can run on a loop and save important events, just like some police cameras.
Big shock to people lying in court too.

Just a thought.
I know people that say it paid for itself with the first involuntary conversion.

First off, the SWAT team doesn't exactly have a better reputation than regualr cops. Little old stoner ladies getting flash-banged and pumped full of bullets in narcotics raids, etc.
Cops are just people who want to feel powerful and carry a gun and maybe kill someone. Sorry if that offends someone, but come on its fucking true, the rest of the reasons are just justifications.
BUT
America isn't the same as other Western countries, cops w/o guns here would be mayhem. You can't compare us to other countries who have a fraction of the gun deaths and murder rate as us.

A knife wielding man can be taken down by a team. This is taught in the mental health units in hospitals. It's called MANDT. My wife learned this when she worked at one. In the hospital to disarm a patient, they use a mattress to pin them against a wall or knock him down. But a shield, that they carry in the trunk, would work. A team grabs arms and legs. She has participated in this in practice. Yes, force is used. But certainly not lethal force. My cousin was a police officer and never used his gun, but was able to disarm a knife wielding suspect many times with very minimal martial arts training. Hard to make a judgement on this without all the facts, but if true it doesn't say a lot about the training of police in LA.
