OOPS. Post 21 was meant for W of C, not Darius.
First they'll find those tape copies of our top secret nuclear weapons that Wen Ho Lee made and "misplaced;" and, I believe, he's been sending the FBI on wild-goose chases per his promise to try to remember where he put them (besides some jail time that was his only punishment -- too many people screaming "Racism!" to do otherwise.)
I am reminded of Another Case of 'Contagious Fire'(shooting in Compton) and that reminded me of something that I posted on that thread; to wit,
There was a case a few years ago in L.A. where a businessman became disoriented and stopped on a freeway overpass. He called his wife telling her he had no idea where he was. He thought he had driven into a remote mountainous area. He had experienced the problem prior to this incident.
I don't remember how things got out of hand but eventually the police became convinced that the situation was extremely dangerous and from a distance ordered him to drive his car off the freeway to a nearby street.
There other police joined and surrounded the car at a distance.
I heard about the incident from The Radio Detective (Jerry Pearce) show. Mr. Pearce, a long-time law enforcement officer, sheriff's deputy and private investigator interviewed a relative of the man and had a copy of the coroner's report.
The police started firing when the man opened the car's trunk and appeared to have a weapon. It turned out to be an air rifle, I believe. I believe that the man was hit by at least 150 rounds any one of 50 rounds would have killed him.
I do not remember enough info to search successfully. Even with the man's name I believe that I found only one news article (in a foreign newspaper) about the incident at the time.
In case you don't know, you can't get more conservative, pro-police than Jerry Pearce.
End of quotes.
I really did find only one item about it but it was in an newspaper, English-languish newspaper in Red China. There was no editing to make it worse than what it was.. the article described exactly what Mr. Pearce reported.
