The next Trayvon case about to explode?
World Net Daily ^ | 1/27/2014 | unknown

Posted on 01/27/2014 7:59:51 AM PST by rktman

A racially charged shooting incident in North Carolina with eerie parallels to the Trayvon Martin drama has ended in the same way – with a jury refusing to hand state authorities the politically pressured charges they sought against the shooter.

In a decision angering the NAACP and other civil-rights activists clamoring for “justice,” a Charlotte grand jury has declined to indict Charlotte Police Officer Randall Kerrick for voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a 24-year-old black man who refused to obey orders to stop after police responded to a robbery call.

Hmmmm. Similarities? Not really. Other than the black guy is dead. Oh, they mean because there was no indictment returned? Based on "evidence". Probably the cops photoshopped it. The justus brothers probably already booking tickets. Can NC import angela curry maybe? And why hasn't the "lyin' king" weighed in yet?

This guy was trying to kick a woman’s door down and then advanced on police while they told him to get down several times.

I’m guessing he was on some kind of drugs.

I presume the cop(s) did not suffer a beating before the firearm was discharged.

By all accounts, the guy who was killed WAS a fine young man - a college graduate, gainfully employed, and engaged to be married. Have you seen any information to the contrary? If not, then cool it with the “yute” nonsense.

But he really looks innocent in his “valedectorian” (sp) robes does he not? Couldn’t the conjure up some pics of him serving as an altar boy? Helping old ladies across the street, saving drowning puppies, rescuing kittens from trees, plating food at a homeless shelter? Nothing?

Toxicology report said he had no drugs in his body.

The guy had just beeen in a serious car accident. I’m guessing head injury.

Ooo, I remember when this one broke. Lots of calls for the out-of-control badge-thug to be punished.

In this one, there are no clear winners. While I’m happy to see the NAALCP get their noses slapped for throwing the race card again, I’m also disturbed to see such a blatant display of government thuggery get a pass.

“Hmmmm. Similarities? Not really.”

Similarity as seen by the media. They want 24/7 coverage, a huge racially charged scandal, increased viewership, plenty of racial chaos. From their perspective, that is the similarity. It’s about viewership, selling space and generating controversy. But that won’t happen without a professional race baiter, as the Martin family lawyer hired.

Chris Rock actually points out a serious problem but I’m not sure even he recognizes it.

We’ve got 3 generations who have been deliberately miseducated by the left. They believe they have rights they don’t have. Believe they don’t have rights they do have. Its always best to run from police even if you’re doing nothing wrong. All conservatives are racist. The left has trained separatism and victimhood into them.

All of that miseducation drives them to do exactly the wrong things that run counter to traditional American society.

All true except the college graduate part. He dropped out of college around his junior year.

It is sad that it happened, but it seems like he was drunk and on drugs and rushed a cop.

Still, state authorities plan to resubmit the charge to a new panel of grand jurors scheduled to meet on Monday. The NAACP plans to protest outside the Charlotte courthouse during their deliberations

There are many, many questionable police shootings.

I generally hold them to the standard of whether or not an average Joe Blow would have be considered by the DA to have been justified in taking the same action.

It is hard to find anything questionable in this shooting, presuming the facts as laid out by WND are true.

And what sort of organization would torture an acronym into THUG? That tells you a lot right there.

Kerrick repeatedly fired at Ferrell with his gun after a Taser failed to stop him

No. Don't do that, don't do that. If you shoot Ferrell you'll just make him mad.

You're right. I posted before reading the story. I jumped to conclusions when reading the Trayvon comparison and NAACP involvement. This one is a tragedy. My apologies.

The guy had just been in a serious car accident. I’m guessing head injury.

When I first read about this case that is what I thought. This is a tragedy, the man who was killed probably had a bad concussion and was in a hallucinatory state. The question is what are the deadly force protocols for the Char-Meck PD? In many places, Cincinnati for example, no deadly force would have been permitted in this instance.

I’m not seeing where had graduated. I did find info that he had a violent episode earlier in the day. It’s interesting that the police chief hasn’t released the toxicology report. The dash cam showed the attack on the cop. Looks open and shut to me unless you think cops need to take a beating before defending themselves.

In 1981, I suffered a severe head injury.

Due to massive internal bleeding and concussion, I was a raving lunatic and I ~attacked~ the ER crew.

Good thing they were local boys and no cops were around.

I’m not liking the outcome of this, if he truly was badly injured.

Unless you’ve had a severe head injury, you cannot imagine what it can do to you.

I beat the bejeezus out of the rescue crew at the scene and continued to clobber the hospital staff for 11 days.

I woke up with a Valium IV and restraints on my arms and legs they’d put there for *their* safety.

Massive brain injury can turn you quite “crazed”.

“There is no evidence that shows Jonathan Ferrell should have been shot at all, but for officer Kerrick to shoot 12 times and striking Mr. Ferrell 10 times indicates more than a reflex, it smells more of hatred and rage, which shows that Mr. Kerrick was predisposed in killing a black man and did so with extreme prejudice,” the NAACP’s Nantambu insisted.

To me, shooting that many shots in that situation indicates the LEO was scared out of his mind and is probably not guilty, but most definitely should not be in law enforcement. That is if he actually fired a dozen shots. What kind of gun did he have anyway?

Seems you’re right about the college part. I had quickly read an article talking about him playing college football, and about how his fiance is a graduate student, and I guess assumed he had graduated.

The toxicology report was released back in November. He had some alcohol in his system, but below the legal limit (it was .06, I believe). Caffeine, nicotene, but no other drugs.

Welcome, No problem.

There is plenty of mud in this one.

That said WND sure put a frenzywhipping headline on this.

This is IMO not St. Trayvon II.

It is small white panic cop sees big black dude moving towards him.

The cop will walk on this most likely, but if it had been You or Me we would already have been convicted of Murder.

I suspect this young man was confused and frightened, and the cops shouldn’t be able to walk away from another bad shooting. That said, it shouldn’t turn into another race wars circus. Cops will kill any of us, if put into a situation that challenges their courage and intellectual skills.

The police chief, who is African-American, still has not released the results of the toxicology report.

I find that rather telling as well.

“How could this white woman be so terrified by the mere sight of a black man – an injured one at that – that she couldn’t contain her fright long enough to even hear out his plea for help? Come on,” wrote Neil Drumming a black columnist for Salon.com.

Drumming said nothing excuses “her utter lack of empathy,” while failing to report that Ferrell tried to kick in her front door. The 9-1-1 tape indicates Ferrell wasn’t acting like a helpless man but a ferocious threat.

Doesn't help that drive by columnists are willfully distorting the truth. Shame on them.

Sorry, you don't get a pass for life threatening behavior because you are black.

There’s quite a few differences between this case and the Martin Zimmerman encounter. The biggest is the national public relations campaign and the political connections that came into play on behalf of Martin’s family. Obama’s cameo, “If I had a son ...” was part of it.

Ferrell may have been under the influence of controlled substances.

Witnesses reported to investigators that they saw Ferrell, who had dropped out of college, drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana in the hours before he crashed his car at an entrance to a suburban Charlotte neighborhood that Saturday at 2:30 a.m.

Where are you getting you information? are you just making it up?

There is no similarity to the Zimmerman trial. Martin was never enoountered nor was there any verbal interchange. Zimmerman broke off his surveilance and was headed back to his vehicle when he was attacked by Martin. In addition Zimmerman is a black hispanic Treyvon Martin a Afro American, both were black.

The chief of police has not yet released the toxicology report according to the link to the article.

The link in the article is to an article from October. The toxicology report was released in November:

Ferrell autopsy, toxicology released in fatal CMPD shooting

"[The toxicology report] shows Jonathan Ferrell did have alcohol in his system the night he was killed but at .06, it was under the legal limit to drive of .08.

There were not any extraordinary drugs in his system."

Witnesses reported to investigators that they saw Ferrell, who had dropped out of college, drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana in the hours before he crashed his car at an entrance to a suburban Charlotte neighborhood that Saturday at 2:30 a.m.

The police chief, who is African-American, still has not released the results of the toxicology report.

At least one resident of the neighborhood reported Ferrell acting violently several minutes before the confrontation with police.

A 9-1-1 tape reveals a frantic call from homeowner Sarah McCartney, who was home alone with her 1-year-old son while her husband was traveling. Through tears, she reported Ferrell trying to kick in her front door in what she thought was an attempted robbery. Banging and yelling can be heard in the background.

“I need help!” McCartney can be heard pleading with the operator. “There’s a guy breaking into my front door, he’s trying to kick it down!”

Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, was shot multiple times when authorities say he surprised a trio of police officers with Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department by running toward them around 2 a.m. Saturday.

He might want to try a different tactic next time.
