It’s a different country now, communist as per liberals, election fraud and a communist propaganda machine posing as our media. And with communism comes the police state. You will stop while in a PARKING garage!
maybe a relative is a cop too? Just a thought . . . a depressing one . . .
Huh? Bad example.
The guy ignored orders (probably drunk), hit a cop, and had stolen items on him.
Not all enlisted men are full of honor, as we so glibly and loftily assume here.
Accident? Or road rage? We fervently hope any Marine would be way above venting road rage at a pair of bicycle police, but maybe this is one that cracked? He had no gun, to be sure, but he did have a guided missile.
If the facts are as given in the story, the shoot sounds justified. Shame the Marine would throw his life away like that.
That's as good an excuse as any to get drunk and try out your new stolen smartphone and ID card.
I don’t know what it is about Camp Pendleton and the surrounding area. Google SGT Manny Loggins, who was driving his daughters for an early morning jog before school and was shot in his vehicle with the girls sitting in the back seat. Just saw that the officer was not charged. I could give more details but it would take up to much space. occurred February 2012
He should have had a dog with him, so they would have likely shot and killed it instead......
The police these days(seemingly nation wide) are becoming increasingly militarized and out of control....Yes, there are exceptions. Hell, for our small rural town of not even 10,000 people, the police recently acquired a giant armored vehicle. If the thing had a turret/barrel and treads, I’d call it a black tank.... WHY??????
Having said that, I’m SURE they didn’t pay for it. The funding for it probably came from a federal grant of some kind. Likely either Homeland security(an agency that shouldn’t exist in the first place) or stimulus/0bama money.
Regardless of where the funding originated, we don’t need that damn thing(our town HAS somehow managed to exist for over 100 years without it). If our local police encounter a situation where such a monstrosity is necessary, they need to either call in the state boys, national guard, or something.
If someone was trying to run me down, I would shoot him.
Was there a dog shot in the melee?
You figure they should just let people run them down with cars? He wasn’t unarmed he had 1,500 - 2,000 lb. lethal weapon and was using it.
Without a quality video I can’t accept the officer’s version. Too many police lie and just make stuff these days to accept their word. I don’t know what happened except that a Marine is dead.
Sounds a bit like suicide by cop. One wonders what was going through this serviceman’s head at the time; guess we’ll never know.
Assumes facts not in evidence and you're extremely naive if you expect AP to accurately report on anything. By the way, the vehicle itself is a weapon particularly in the hands of someone who's s***faced.
