“Ammo, sword found with man killed by Tacoma cop”
The Associated Press
GIG HARBOR, Wash.
SNIPPET: “Spokesman Ed Troyer says the semi-automatic gun was loaded with bullets that can pierce body armor. More ammunition was found in the man’s pickup truck along with a sword, pepper spray, an English version of the Quran and book on the rights of non-Muslims in Muslim countries.”
“Man shot by off-duty officer following traffic stop”
SNIPPET: “The sheriffs investigation confirmed that Papineau had gone to work at 6 p.m. but left early, at 8 p.m., claiming to be sick. Troyer said Papineau smelled of alcohol when he died.
There is no chance that Heilmans actions could put her at risk of losing her job, he said.
He came at her with a semi-automatic weapon, Troyer said. You dont want to wait until you get shot to find out whether or not hes going to shoot you or not.”
“a gun loaded with armor-piercing bullets”
Those are words designed to alarm the soccer-moms. Of course your average rifle round will pierce the average body armor.
“book on the rights of non-Muslims in Muslim countries”
huh? musta been a very short book ;-)
And perhaps they need to do a little more research...
Man shot by Tacoma officer did not fire handgun
"We don't believe that he fired any shots, which is a good thing because the ammunition that was in the gun was very high powered and probably would have done a lot of damage if it would have hit the Tacoma officer," says Troyer.
Armor piercing ammunition was found inside Papineau's pickup truck.
Rifle ammunition is "armor piercing".
Brooks Lawrence Papineau
He worked at the US Postal Service for the past 27 years. Brooks will be remembered as an incredibly kind spirit who loved his wife, family, friends and his four-legged children Penny and Rachel. He was passionate about motorcycles, the 4th of July and was an experienced collector of historical weapons over the past 25 years.
I’ll wait for the dashcam release.
Shouldn’t there be an anti-cop freeper in this thread claiming that the ammo was planted?
Seems like a good policy, to me: Any officer who kills an armed Muzzie, who is threatening a police officer with a weapon, gets a paid vacation.
Perhaps he had a picture of Jesus Malverde at home, and wanted to be able to defend himself from feral SWAT teams.
I’ll go out on a limb here and say that this guy was probably not a convert himself but had the displeasure of learning someone close to him did or was going to.
Obviously the ammo was there because that was his hobby.
All that needs to be said “ U.S. Postal Service “
He!! this happend 5 miles down the road from my house. Wauna is a town of maybe 500 on a two lane road up in the hills, in the middle of the piney woods. The gas station in the background is where I gas up every week. The fact that he had firearms and ammo in his truck is not unusual in the area. Taking the gun with him when he exited the truck was his fatal mistake. Anyone getting out of a vehicle during a police stop, with a gun in hand, and moving in your direction should rightly be considered a lethal threat. Good reaction by the officer, bad and obviously suicidal move by the driver.
