It said nowhere in the article she was trying to run over anyone.
You think the death penalty is correct for shoplifting? You people are really something.
I should have put a little smiley face at the end of that.What I mean is that if I ever decide to engage in shoplifting for the *second* time (I shoplifted a pack of gum from a Woolworth's at age 11) it *won't* be in a store guarded by the NYPD (or the Harris County Sheriff's Dept).
The “pulled out of his shoes” thing adds up with your guess that she tried to reverse out of the space and hooked the cop with the door.
1. The dead chick put herself in position that opened her up to forced submission by authority (i.e. getting shot).
2. Give an authoritarian with a gun the legal cover to shoot you and they will take full advantage of it regardless of whether they or anybody around them are ACTUALLY in an actual life threatening situation.
I find the 2nd point actually more frightening than the first.
That was a quote from the article, I just failed to Italicize it.
There is a place for deadly force. This isn’t it. The off duty police officer used terrible judgement based on the initial report.
Something fishy here. Walmart guards I don’t believe are armed.
As I understand, "what she did" (the shoplifting) is not even involved here, except as a lead-in. She was killed in a struggle with an armed, uniformed cop when she had an advantage of a vehicle.
The LEO's actions will be reviewed, of course. He can use the weapon only to protect himself or others from deadly harm. Shooting at a fleeing shoplifter is not it.
See post #50.
Scumbags like this dead woman and her friends cause my prices to go up to pay for their shoplifting.
Gee, what a tragedy.
I believe one of the other shoplifters was charged with assaulting the officer when they were leaving the store — that ratchets things up to a higher level than just theft, which is probably why he drew his gun in the first place.
Walmart has cameras all over their parking lots, so maybe we’ll actually get to see if there is a reason the deputy believed he might be hit or run over by the shoplifters car.
She appears to have a long history. She’s a mom, which means she has spawn who likely will continue her tradition. I’m glad she has been removed from the gene pool.
Just looked at the pictures of the three crooks at the link.
That is a lot of ugly in one car.
I hope it hurt.
Some of therm are armed:
We had a couple of those around here where the offduty cop shot the people in the back seat ~ if he’d really feared being run over he’d shot the driver through the front windshield of course!
If Ubama had a daughter she’d look just like...
Oh wait! Ubama DOES have daughters. Maybe they can grow up to look like Turquillanda, or whatever her made-up name is.
In the 80s I briefly worked for Bradlees a now defunct dept store chain (left to work for postal service...) Part of the training of being a dept. manager (hardware/paint) was hanging around with Security. We could see live video of people stealing and the security went out and made the pinch and brought them into the office, the videotape being evidence of the act. I forget what kind of penalty the offenders paid beyond being banned from the store but I think we had a police officer there and a woman with her kids was being arrested (brought into police station later). She started crying, waaah, here I am with my kid, what am I gonna do? The cop said “you should have thought about that before
The security guy also used to have a little fun—record on one of the cameras and hit pause, then the shoppers would move away. Play it back and it was liked Bewitched...people suddenly disappearing.
I agree and will take a LONG break from FR if this kind of sentiment becomes prevalant here. Many of these posters seem to have want her shot even if there were no other salient factors — such as aiming her car at the officer. They just want her dead, and probably most others of her race. In fact, these posters are no better than and indistinguisable from an Islamic mob.
We was beat up by a Bible salesman and banished from Woolworths.
Everett, was it the one branch or all of them?
From the article:
After chasing Frey and the other two women to their car, Campbell opened the door and commanded them to stop, but the car was placed in drive and moved forward.
'I think it knocked him off balance and, in fear of his life and being ran over, he discharged his weapon at that point,' said Thomas Gilliland, Harris County Sheriffs Office.
You clearly are a person who does not understand the concept of degree. If you believe shoplifting is a crime whose consequence should be death your views are no different than fundamental Muslim law.
Upon second thought, their belief system is closer to the founding fathers than yours.
The officers shoes may be lying in the lot for some other purpose, or maybe those aren't his shoes.
More information is required, but this guy was off duty, not really a cop at that point, and subject to Wal mart rules. They have a stable of good lawyers and they always win ~ but will they back him up?
But, as it turns out, not the perfect shoplifter.
I understand, just got a little ‘lazy’, was heading back to the top and saw it on your contribution....
Does speeding through a crowded parking lot full of people qualify?
from a Houston paper “she threw it into reverse and tried to run over the deputy”
Off duty cop, in uniform.
Death because she tried to run the guard over.
If she would have given up and not tried to kill the guard with her vehicle she would be a live today.
Any scumbag career criminal that happens to get offed during the commission of their crime gets no sympathy from me. Good riddence to the them. These are the types of human vermin that have helped turn the country into such a sewer. I’d pin a medal on the officer.
I agree. No one should be killed for shoplifting.
I can’t stand that reporter with the smarmy voice. Okay for TMZ but not appropriate for this type of subject.
She wasn’t killed for shoplifting.
He said he was pinned between the car door and the drivers seat while the car was accelerating backward.
“Campbell confronted the women in the doorway and ordered them to stop. They tried to force their way past him. One of the women, later identified as Frey, hit the deputy and ran.... Campbell opened the car door and ordered Frey to get out. But she refused, officials said. Andrews began to drive away while the deputy was standing between the open door and the driver’s seat. She threw it in reverse and tried to run over the deputy”
The officer was not a fault. The theives were at fault. The driver is being held in jail on aggrevated robbery with a deadly weapon and the other for robbery. Since they committed crime in which a preson was killed, they will most likely be charged with murder. That’s three less scum off the streets.
Worth it for the experience alone.
Shemale! Nice lips!
That is a very good question. The parking lot can be crowded or deserted. The exit from the lot can be close by or far away. How fast, exactly, was the car moving? Was there anyone to protect or not? This is something that can be answered only by investigators at the site, considering all of the above and more. Otherwise the police eventually will get the right to shoot us whenever they feel to it, no questions asked - just like they shoot dogs today. The fact that this particular victim is unsympathetic makes the slope even more slippery.
Stay in Israel. Apparently they love shoplifters who try to run down policemen there.
One of my facebook friends who lives in Houston posted the story there.......when i clicked on the link he provided it said link was no good or something to that effect, when i put up my comment “Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson in 3- 2—1....” within seconds i got an error message withe the little yellow triangle, and “unable to post “
What`s with that ?
“I see she had enough money for nose jewelry.”
Dat be rasis!
She be entitled, ‘cause she be one of Holder’s People. Or was that “She be one of Obama’s daughters”?
Wow. A criminal who breaks the law. I’m shocked. And the British are idiots who can’t tell victims from perps.
One minor correction:”That makes it self defense in my book, and everyone (especially Israel, of course!) has an absolute right of self defense!”
Your comment is indeed.
At the point they hit the officer while going out the door, the offence became “assaulting an officer while resisting arrest “. Do that, and you generally WILL be shot.
I've not seen that episode, but I suspect it involved a blast of some sort. Having played high school football, I know it's not unusual to see a shoe knocked loose. Getting snagged by an open car door and dragged sideways seems like a perfectly plausible way to get your shoes pulled off. If the driver cut the wheel to the right (swinging the front of the car to the left), the left front tire might've helped pull his shoes off.
