A Pasadena police officer fatally shot a man today after the victim reportedly point a gun at him, police said. Two officers were dispatched to the Hacienda Isbell Apartments, around 12:30 p.m., after residents reported that a man was firing a gun in the apartment courtyard. Officials did not release the identification of the victim, who was pronounced dead at 2:07 p.m. at Memorial Hermann Hospital. The victim is believed to have been in his 20s, according to Pasadena Police spokesman Martin DeLeon.
When the officers arrived at the scene they went to an apartment where nine Hispanic men were drinking, DeLeon said. One of the men inside the apartment allegedly pointed a gun at one of the officers, he said. The officer then fired at least twice, striking the man in the chest, DeLeon said. Witnesses told police the victim is the same man who was seen shooting in the courtyard earlier. The other eight men in the apartment were taken into custody for questioning.
"They're just pointing guns at police officers no one else wants to point guns at..."
You are correct, sir!
Our gangbangers are asleep at the wheel, too much MTV and BET for them. We must import large amounts of foreign lawbreakers to keep the police busy.
I blame the Jews.
The headline is confusing...it begs the question, what else could he have shot him with? Kudos to the officer for superb shooting skills in the face of danger. Next time, amigos, no apunten la pistola al policía. Así se queda vivo.
"...Hacienda Isbell Apartments..."
Even the names of apartment complexes in our country attract illegals. Close the borders NOW.

Good observation...didn't see that, stupid me. If the officer were to have died, he would have been a well-deserving cadaver? Idiot journalists.
cops must have been gringo imperialists.
what the heck...they were just here to cut grass, drink and point guns at cops.
lets give amnesty to another 30 million or so....no biggie...family values being so universal and all.
i always hated "anglo" culture anyhow....slavery and all ..
blah...blah ...blah.....where's the FR La Raza crowd?
C'mon, Mene, the LSM is just trying to make certain that we morons understand ALL the ''facts''.
What?? You are not blaming Bush!
You must be a B. Boxer and Teddy "Water torture" Kennedy fan.
I'm guessing if it were a white perp you'd put that in your header?
Don't worry. With that title, I expect at least one of the three amigos to show up and explain why this is all the fault of us lazy Americans.
Where have you been dear?
it's just not interesting when whites are killed by anyone unless they are celebrities or pregnant and the perp hires a glamour lawyer.
now if a minority is killed by a white cop or citizen, the fun starts.
we have a new Cincinnati thread right now here on that very form of entertaiment.
we really are living in a Bonfire of the Vanities world...like a bad movie but a good book..lol
funniest post of the day. Well done.
That's law enforcement. The police didn't stop to complain about immigrants or blame President Bush. Houston police treated a crime as a crime, not an immigration situation.
If the man had killed a police officer and survived, we would have executed him.
If California and certain other cities would follow suite they wouldn't have as much a crime problem either.
I don't understand the point you are trying to make. It doesn't make any difference if he was an illegal alien or not, anyone who points a gun at a police officer is going to get shot. Me, you, anyone.
How's your ticker, honey? Missed you, too! (Honest)
I just get pissed off about these type of threads. I have cousins who are LEO's who happen to be ethnic. I guess that's important when reporting a story.
lol.....someone will be called bigot or racist within 50 posts.
and one of the sanctimonious three amigos will run to the AM to cry "Mommy!!!!"
to be fair though....there are a few very decent freepers who disagree with me on this la Migra contention in varying degrees and I regret that.....and before they get cranked up...there are threads and pics on this forum documenting my physical and monetary support for W but I have the right to disagree with him a bit....nobody is perfect...not even Dubbers....he is way off on this...IMHO.
as for the high and mighty...well...it's like ducks in a barrel ain't it?
They called the guy a "victim" about 10 times in the article.
I'm interested to know if they've ever stood on a street corner at dawn with the wetbacks, looking for work.
For a mostly enlightened forum, I'm surprised at the hateful invective levelled at the illegal aliens from Mexico. There is no illegal alien crime wave taking place in our state that they're responsible for, other than not being papered. Crime ain't gonna drop drastically by closing the borders.
That said, dude got what he was asking for. Good shot, officer.
