Albuquerque polices new chief says the latest officer involved shooting that killed a homeless man in the foothills is justified.
But new video police released Friday is raising a lot of questions about how it all played out.
The release came Friday as APDs first press conference since the shooting. http://krqe.com/2014/03/21/apd-officer-involved-shooting-was-justified/ Read more at
More info for those interested.
Protect ans serve, baby, protect and serve.
Just like in a war zone...Kill the enemy.
For those that can’t watch it at liveleak, here it is at youtube.
They literally provoked the circumstances that would make killing him technically legal, albeit totally unnecessary.
“yet” not “yes”
“Protect and Serve” has become “Obey or die”. They basically allowed a camping violation to escalate to a killing.
These guys are terrified and deadly in their fear, physical cowards that seem to panic at anything unusual.
“Comply or die!”
Murder or Manslaughter is NEVER charged against a government agents.
And, naturally, the police have cleared themselves of any wrongdoing. Who polices the police? In this case, no one.
“These guys are terrified and deadly in their fear, physical cowards that seem to panic at anything unusual.”
Cops are the dumbest cowards. Never knew one that wasn’t.
Well come on man, he’s a US citizen and he has a KNIFE and he is camping! Highly highly highly illegal under The Regime. Now if he were an MS-13 gang member it would be a different story. The Regime would bus or fly him to the state of his choice, give him an EBT card and let him party it up dude!
I don’t get why they would be afraid though, are these cops that naive and stupid or did this guy rob someone? They are reacting as cops would react when confronting a suspect who just committed a felony, but this guy is just camping out.
What do I know, but it looks like murder to me.
The guy is claiming to be a secret agent and is threatning to kill the officers. BUT, on that rough terrain, against I think 3 armed officers and a K-9 officer and dog I don’t see how he can be a threat. If the Officers want to take him in, bean bag him a few times, drop the dog on him and no worries.
But to flash bang him then shoot him when he startles... That’s some weak cheese.
Very poor tactics and exceptionally poor training.
No supervision except their labor union.
Gee. I am surprised they didn’t scalp him , too.
“Hoh, he has a knife with a 3 inch blade.” Blam blam blam blam blam blam
Camping without a permit: capital offense punishable by immediate death without trial.
Murder: Not so much.
Child Molesting: 30 days
MS-13 Mexican gang members sneaking into the US. Perfectly legal - Reward: Free EBT cards, free food, shelter, clothing and free plane and bus rides to the state of their choice.
I don’t know, but all over America guys deal with this stuff without being armed, or killing the guy.
Remember... say last month... when a comment like that would have been considered pure sarcasm ?
When no one would even believe that could happen?
My how time flies.
If a CCHL holder, an armed citizen, “escalates” a situation to the point where he has to “defend himself” using deadly force,
he’s still liable for homicide.
The same should apply to cops.
They need to prove that they took all necessary measures to DE-escalate the situation.
It appears that they copthugs shot him in the back!
The copthugs should be arrested, charged, tried, found guilty and summarily executed for murder.
Yep, and now it’s reality. This is the kind of Regime we have in power. Even in Iraq, would we ever have believed we would have a POTUS who would actually assist terrorists in taking over Iraq? Who would allow terrorists to not only kill a US Ambassador but defend them as well by shifting blame to a video? Terrorists and drug gangs never had it so good under this guy. Not only does he let them go where they want, do what they want, he also arms them!! What gets me is how many blatant acts of hardcore treason does this guy have to do before Congress decides “Say you know, maybe we should do a little more other than sue him”.
Many of these guys are ex-military. Imagine being in enemy territory, where the enemy is dressed like civilians, and you aren't allowed any bullets.
They were, like any sane person, scared.
Over here, they at least get to shoot someone. Even if it's a dog.
It starts with an unknown situation, which leads to an adrenaline rush. You fire off a few shots, and then work on your story.
No more panic, no more fear. Works pretty good ... for them.
The number doesn't matter. The terrorists will have to 'hit home' again (in the US) before the mass of the populace decides it may have something to lose.
Do you remember the Mel Gibson movie GET THE GRINGO ?
If so, remember the prison he ends up in ?
My bet is that these recent 'immigrants' are the result of Honduras and Guatemala emptying those kind of prisons.
For added impact video evidence impact, they actually put handcuffs on his corps!
THe guy wasn't moving beyond twitching his foot. He was dead. Did anyone of them even attempt to administer aid? Check for a pulse?
Nope, after they filled him with lead they went to phase two of barking out orders and cuffing him (his dead body) because they knew this was being recorded and they could then say how they feared for their lives.
This was murder.
Im almost going to kill you right now. Dont give me another directive. Dont attempt to give me, the Department of Defense, another directive, said Boyd at the beginning of the incident.
As the hours passed, Chief Eden said an APD Crisis Intervention Team officer and a State Police liaison were called to the scene. Both attempted to speak with Boyd, however, Chief Eden says Boyd continued to threaten officers with death. Police also discovered that Boyd had a violent 20-year criminal history that included multiple incidents of violence against officers. Boyds history also showed years of mental health related concerns.
Video shows when officers moved in on Boyd around 7:30 p.m on the night of the shooting. At the beginning of incident, Boyd can be heard saying, In a private world, if you were down at a bar or a bus stop, I would have the right to kill you right now because youre trying to take me over. Dont get stupid with me!
Video shows Boyd then began grabbing bags and attempted to leave when officers started their use of non-lethal force.
As Boyd is moving, officers then threw a flash bang and released a K9 which appears to bite Boyd in the hand. Chief Eden said officers also used a taser gun and bean bag rounds. Two officers, Dominque Perez and Keith Sandy then both fired three bullets each from their department issued rifles, causing Boyd to fall to the ground.
Chief Eden called the shooting justified at the news conference, saying officers used non-lethal force first and that there was a direct threat made at an unarmed K9 officer. According to Chief Eden, Boyd was less than eight feet from the unarmed canine officer.
Actually if you watch the video tape, all the less than lethal devices were in fact deployed. It was when the canine officer was down directing the canine dog that the suspect pulled out the two knives and directed a threat to the canine officer who had no weapons drawn. He was handling the dog, Chief Eden said.
***hes a US citizen and he has a KNIFE and he is camping!***
OMG! How many times was my life in danger from doing just this when camping in NM? I could have been shot!
They shot the bean bag rounds at the guy after they shot him. Not sure why.
Additionally. Yes. The dude is stark raving crazy. Clearly in need of medical intervention.
I would form three guys in close formation with riot shields. Advance up hill towards the guy with a shooter on the right flank, bean bag gun on the left. Loose the canine when close and pin him to the ground with the shields.
Disarm. Everybody leaves alive.
Yep I saw that movie, that could be right, this could be Obamas Mariel boatlift, and he probably knows it as well. You ever hear of that punk rock “The Gits”? The girl lead singer of that group was raped and killed by one of those Mariel boatlift mutts as were quite a lot of other people.
Plus it’s already been in the press that the MS-13 gangs are getting in AND recruiting at the border! So he damn well knows killers are getting in. Isn’t that something, not only is he letting them in, he is allowing our border to be used as recruiting centers. It’s just blatant, flat out, hardcore treason treason treason
A teachable moment. Now you know what murder looks like.
Well... I have now.
Plus its already been in the press that the MS-13 gangs are getting in AND recruiting at the border!
They are being spread throughout the US to provide a drug distribution network for marijuana, meth, and heroin.
Not only will they be loyal , they will take out their competition (the young black gangbangers) for free.
Get real, don’t let that goofy imagination replace your ability to think and to see.
I guess I posted post 39 too quickly, now I think you were being sarcastic, but I missed it on first reading, sorry.
