White Californian Gun Owner Shoots Himself, Blames Black Man
New York Daily News ^ | THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014 | Lee Moran

Brent Thomas Posada told police that a black man had shot him in the stomach during a scuffle, but they could not find any evidence to back up his claim and he eventually admitted the truth.

Brent Posada of Redding, Calif., told cops he was shot by a black man, but has since recanted his story. A white California man who told cops he'd been shot by a black man has confessed he made the entire story up and had actually fired the gun at himself.

Officers found Brent Thomas Posada suffering from gunshot wounds at his Redding home at 8:18 p.m. on Feb. 1.

The 34-year-old claimed a black man had approached him and pointed a gun at his head.

Posada alleged that, when he pushed the suspect's arm to the side, the gun went off. A bullet struck him in the stomach, he added.

But when police searched the area, they found no evidence to back up his claims, reports Redding.com.

Investigators analyzed Posada's clothes and found evidence that seemed to contradict his original statement.

Posada was recalled for questioning and, on Monday, reportedly admitted to intentionally shooting himself with a high-powered air rifle.

It's not clear why he deliberately wanted to injure himself.

Posada was not arrested for filing a false police report. But Shasta County District Attorney's Office will now review his case, reports KRCRTV.

Well, we can be sure the headline would have been considerably different with the races reversed.

In fact, it wouldn’t have been reported at all.

So what? Some twit from Birmingham AL, one Gabriell Coleman, just clamed 2 white men abducted her, because she wanted to hang out with friends. It was a lie, as she admitted after hours of mantime and resources spent searching for her. She had also pulled the exact same stunt while in high school.

A Black man, having the strength of his convictions (a little pun), would never have recanted his original story.

Col. Coopers gun safety rules:
1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of

inadvertent discharges.
4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

And yes there rules apply to “white hispanics”

I would also like to say that it was a good thing this happened in Redding rather than LA so this whole thing could be settled without any new paper deliverers having their pickup ventilated.

Not even a firearms violation.

One of two things.

1. He did this by accident and was so ashamed he made up a story.

2. Munchausens's, to draw attention to himself.

Posada eh, NYC newspaper?

But of course, this makes “news” In California, no less. I wonder how often race is mentioned in the oft-occurring knockout games in its own backyard?

Brent Thomas Posada, 34, apparently the stereotype lying racist cracker wimp (he used an airgun).

How's that?

I wonder what some Freepers will say a bout this.

I would say it is stupid but not even in the same league as hiring a lady from Montana to oversee the insurance obomadation in Colorado who is currently being charged with felony theft from a tax free corp in Montana.

I've got a big list of other stupid things from the left. Maybe we can talk about the chocolate city and it's leadership who berated President Bush. He now has many years to contemplate his criminal theft. Taking advantage of a bad situation involving his city is way beyond shameful and disgusting.

Shall I continue with other incidents? Those are just from the last couple of days.

That was smart by them. Just one more push towards single payer.

The federal ‘justice’ department will demand prosecution for a ‘hate crime’ even there was no minority person anywhere near him.

I will say “he said this, knowing it would be fairly believable, because so very many blacks run to violence.”

And I believe that reporting a false crime should be punishable, in fact, they are. The liars just don’t usually get charged.
