Hot Air has confirmed with the Arizona Department of Public Safety that fliers have been found at Occupy Phoenix instructing people on when to shoot police officers. First reported by the Jon Justice show on 104.1 FM in Tucson, the flier resulted in a counterterrorism alert issued to all law enforcement agencies in the state:
Haven’t we seen, yet, “When to shoot a TEA Partier” ?
hmmm...makes me think...Black Panthers must think they’ve died and gone to heaven.
They say that even if you are driving drunk and a cop pulls you over for it, you have the right AND duty to kill the cop.
the flier resulted in a counterterrorism alert ——
WHAT?! Wait, Napalitano said our U.S. Veterans and the Tea party were terrorists...
She’s wrong again, the counterterrorism alert is because of her and Obama’s beloved lefties...
I thought they didn’t like guns. They must means something else by shoot. /s
Read the document. Most of it makes sense.
Except for the patently insane, IMO, assumption that we are presently at the point where armed resistance is appropriate.
Most any sane person will agree there are hypothetical situations where armed resistance against true oppressors is appropriate, even morally required. But I believe it is wildly hyperbolic to claim we’re at or near that point now.
The problem, of course, is that from a practical standpoint by the time you actually get to that point things are so bad that your resistance is likely to be ineffective. What practical good would shooting one (or twenty) Cheka or Gestapo goons have accomplished?
The author of the piece also implies that you may need to shoot a cop to save your life. This is not good advice except possibly on an extremely temporary basis. Shoot a cop and your chance of being killed in the next few hours is very high. If caught and not “killed while resisting arrest” you will almost certainly either face the death penalty or life in prison.
Not to mention all the cop haters on FR. ;-)
I'm no fan -- I've seen too many psychos wearing a badge.
But there's a big difference between calling attention to a rash of cop-shoots-dog stories and flogging the cop-killah mentality.
Handing it out to protesters and homeless people can’t be a good idea.
If one of those smelly subhuman things shoots a cop and they get an Abama-butt judge who lets them off, just ask the cops stand by and look the other way whilst we take care of business.
It’ll be our treat.
With some minor changes to wording, the letter could easily have been an FR post.
Janet's under pressure from 'Fast and Furious' - she has to pretend violent leftists are violent. She'll be back to herself soon enough.
I just tweeted this. i have become quite the little tweety bird.
Are you out of your mind, none of it make sense.
Are you some troll from MoveOn.org or something?
When have you ever seen a FReeper advocating shooting cops? Never. What a stupid statement you made.
This was a state government alert. Janet Incompetano had nothing to do with it.
I’ve seen plenty of threads about armed resistance in the event of a gun ban. I assume “Molon Labe!” involves killing some cops.
