What led an FBI agent, or some other law enforcement official, to shoot and kill an unarmed man in Orlando, Florida? The man, Ibragim Todashev, was being questioned about the Boston bombing, as well as an unsolved 2011 triple murder that he may or may not have confessed to committing. Does that sound sketchy? Don't blame me. Once he died, law enforcement started releasing anonymous, conflicting explanations so dubious that they warrant an inquiry all by themselves.
Did the dead man have a knife? A gun? A sword? None of those? Let's run through a timeline of what we've been told, and then assess all the information that the FBI hasn't released about the killing. ...

Although I have no sympathy for the deceased here, this situation along with the changing stories really stinks.
Because dead men tell no tales...

When you have a complicit media, and a stupid public, changing stories constantly is an excellent tactic. The public doesn’t have the ability or the patience to try to follow the lies, and the media will rarely point out contradictions.

FBI Assassin Squads ? FBI Cleanup Squads ?

—how do we know he’s really dead?
Whether it’s a SWAT raid of Gibson Guitars or the unexplained death of a person of interest, the Federal government is clearly out of control and an enemy of the people.
Moral of the story: Never allow FBI, IRS agents, or any other official of ‘the new regime’ to be with you WITHOUT a video camera rolling or a neutral member of the public present.
Probably the same reason that they seem to have pushed two FBI agents involved in the case out of a helicopter to drown at sea. But what that reason is—other than some sort of cover-up to protect Obama—isn’t precisely clear.
Was this person a Muslim?
I just saw this linked via Yahoo and was going to post it. You would think that a seasoned FBI agent would be able to subdue and restrain someone without using lethal force.
You know what they say: From the head down...
This is now officially an X-File, Mulder. You’re off the case.
If he was as bad a$$ as the reports suggest it could be justified. If he’s on top of an FBI agent pounding his face I’d put a couple of rounds in him.
There is always the remote possibility they wanted him shut up for good.
