Thanks, re-read article, I didn’t notice that he claimed to have knocked it out of the runners hands using his left hand, but this was the only article about it I have read, and the only video sample I have seen of the incident. I’m sure its being covered widely elsewhere, but based on the Ferguson incident(s) and the coverage, I’ll only trust what I can see myself on the video, and even take that with a grain of salt for now, given its quality.
I sure do hope his filed report says he only moved the Taser closer to the body AFTER the incident to keep it safely under control from on-lookers (which I did NOT see very many of in the video).
If they claim that was where the runner dropped it, then book both the officers to the max. Otherwise I could understand an officer trying to keep his issued weapons closer to him own location.
Anyone know if the initial policed filed incident report is available anywhere online yet? And I hope they filed their report BEFORE they knew a video was made of the incident.

Look at the video at second markers between seconds 17-18.
Something clearly does fall to the ground from the officers direction about 6-10 feet BEHIND the cop just as the guy starts running.
Just imagining the cop will say he thought the guy running had that object and if it was either a stun gun or another real gun, the officer might not have noticed it hitting the ground and thought the running man still had it, and if it was either a stun gun or a real gun be a risk to the public safety.
Just saying, but that said it would be tough for the cop to prove in court I would think. But something made the person start recording the interaction, so something must have been going on before the shooting, something forcible enough to throw the unknown object behind the police officer just before the man started to run.

Did anyone else notice the object bounce behind the cop just as the guy started running? To me it looks like something was thrown either off the officers belt or from the guy who got shot.
Don’t know what that object was. Could it be whatever the police man dropped beside the man who was gunned down as he was running away? Perhaps the officer thought whatever that object was was still in the guys possession as he was running?
Don’t want to jump to any conclusions either way, but it doesn’t look good for the officer either way.

The video did look like the other one put the pack he was handed back on the counter.

We generate our bodies energy thru chemical reactions so just living we affect the global temp. His challenge is useless. Any rational discussion with him would be what an old minister used to call: “Casting pearls before swine”
I read a Reuters article May 12th named “West Antarctic glaciers in ‘irreversible’ thaw, raising seas: study” it said: “The scientists believed that a build-up of man-made greenhouse gases in the atmosphere was affecting wind patterns around Antarctica, driving warmer waters towards the continent.”
But then on June 10, in less than a month other researches from the University of Texas labeled “Researchers Find Major West Antarctic Glacier Melting from Geothermal Sources” found that there were Magma flows under that EXACT SAME REGION that were causing the warming of the waters, not what the “Scientist” from the first article “Believed”.
Confirms to me their the global warming worshipers views are just their belief system. Had the actual data not been discovered thru ice penetrating radar, the scientist would have built yet another bogus “consensus”.

Obviously the victim (now arrested) was a Obama democrat. Taking Obamas advice and:
If someone says or does something you do’nt agree with Obama instructs us to: “I want you to argue with them and get in their face.” That’s what the victim did.
And Obamas advice about guns, is to bring one, even if the opponent is even far less armed: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Hard to bring one if you don’t have one at the ready.
Good democrats all the way round. The fine “loving” citizens who get shot were only encouraging the SUV owner to share the wealth.

Notice when her story shifted….
AFTER she realized there was a girl in GZs car. She was on the phone with 911 when she realized that, then for some unknown reason she started covering the phone so 911 couldn’t hear what she was saying. Could it be that she thought the girl in the car witnessed of filmed the entire incident?
I’ll withold judgement until I see the IPAD video but her accusations not fitting the evidence, and NOT prosecuting after the emphatic please for the police all seem too fishy.
But if your a GZ hater, all alegations aginst him must be true, facts be darned.
September 11, 2013 at 7:43pm
I’ll hold final judgment until I see whats on the video.
Evidence I have seen/heard so far:
-She was saying he had his hand on a gun,
-She said GZ hit her father, and he needs an ambulance etc,
-When she finds out there is a girl in GZs truck who probably witnessed (or possibly filmed?) the whole thing, suddenly she doesn’t talk much to 911 operator, and doesn’t file charges, and father doesn’t require medical attention, no gun found???
Who/how/why the IPad was destroyed would be nice to know, and perhaps the video will show GZ did every thing his wife claimed, but until then, I have suspicions about her account of events.
I’ve been thru a divorce and was GLAD I had film running during exchanges of property etc. Like when she spotted the camera filming everything up in the corner of the garage, her whole attitude changed. A raging lunatic became instantly calm, but then again her meds might have kicked in. And when I had date stamped photos of items I owned YEARs before I met her and she was claiming were somehow now hers….Photos are great when you photo and video all your property about 2 years prior to even meeting the spouse before a hurricane at an old house prior to marriage. Keep the old tapes and photos with date stamps in a bank box, never know when they will come in handy.
If GZ was destroying those type of records, I’ll think far less of him. But as of now I’ll take the courts view of her truthfulness,until she pro

So according to a Reauters article this morning, Trayvon who had CHILD PORN on his phone (yes that is what nude images of underage girls is called), yet Zimmerman is the potential “pervert” or “rapist”?
I have heard of 2 cases locally where just having naked images of underage girls has landed 2 young men in jail, and also there are girls who sent those types of photos get charged of “child porn” for sending photos of themselves. And Parents of those children who receive and send those images also face prosecution, because they own the devices which contain the CHILD PORN.
So why WHY have we not heard ANYTHING about prosecutions for the “Perverted” CHILD PORN ring Trayvon was involved with? Don’t we have or want Equal justice for all in this country? Aren’t the over eager prosecutors willing to take on this horrible crime that hurts minors? They have something called EVIDENCE in this case.
July 15, 2013 at 7:08pm
I’m sure she will wear something. But speaking of that, who were the “Naked underage girls” Travon had photos of on his cell phone?
I have heard of both prosecutions and convictions of the underage girls who SEND naked photos of themselves? Have the over eager prosecutors filed charges on the girls they somehow knew enough about to say they were underage? At least here they have clear EVIDENCE for a prosecution and CONVICTION. And if it crossed state lines, perhaps the Feds who want to get involved here somehow will have an entry point into it.
On a side note I’ve seen studies that say pornography can lead to violence, just a coincidence I’m sure.

It was TRAGIC it happened, no one deserves to die like that. Personally, I think she was a pretty lady from her photos, and I can’t imagine the pain of what the husband must be feeling.
I disagree with them politically not as fellow humans, and point out the murderers self defined ideology, but she was a victim, not a criminal getting just due.
And I do think there is something wrong with the democrats in NC. Remember in 2006, the 3rd vice chair of the democrat party in Durham NC was involved in SATANISM, and helped KIDNAP and RAPE a couple. And I remember when it came out, I mentioned it to my democrat “friends”, and they just laughed, thought I was joking, then LAUGHED AGAIN when I showed them the article.
Satanism might help explain the views on abortion and late term abortions, perhaps they see it as a human sacrifice.
The NC has the long legacy of democrat corruption like with Representative Black, its former female Ag commissioner, a few of its Govs….
Checked out his facebook page. Cher fan. Cut, print, gay.

Personally, if I knew there was a supposedly armed terrorist in my neighborhood, heard the explosions and shootouts, etc. I wouldn’t mind allowing the police to search my property for the suspect if they ASKED. If they forced me to comply however, that would be a different situation. Or if they removed anything of mine from my property during said “search for suspect”, I would also have an issue.
On their behalf they had been fired at, so as far as they knew he was still armed.
April 24, 2013 at 1:48pm
Not a big fan of this admin at all, but I can’t fault her for visiting everyone who was wounded and not a know perpetrator of the event.
If the kid does turn out to be “in the wrong place at the wrong time” and really is innocent of this event, then the PR photo op they were doing would backfire with Saudi relationships if she didn’t get a photo with him.
But the same can be said if it turns out he IS involved, well then its a good photo for the GOP in the 2014 elections. But…. the media would say the GOP was using the tragedy for political gain, and try and make it backfire for the GOP.

Don’t forget, Glenn has STILL not apologized to the innocent members of the Hutaree. Even the judge said in the acquittal, that in 2 YEARS the FBI was infiltrated the group they only had only 2 passing comments about an idea to kill cops, and then attack a funeral, and there was NEVER any agreement on actually doing anything close to it.
But any stupid/insane idea of the one hutaree leader David Stone, no matter how fleeting or passing it was said was enough for Glenn to jump on the bash ALL Hutaree members bandwagon.
I’ve posted links several times for them to read the trial dismissal, and the FBI “Tapes” etc. They don’t care. It doesn’t fit Glenn’s “AGENDA”. To Glenn the “truth doesn’t seem to matter”.
He makes more money and attention (his new drug of choice) by peddling his wares, by crying extremism everywhere.
Hey Glenn, do the story and claim an “Exclusive” of how the government falsely accused these guys as scapegoats to justify their homeland security report about “Right wing extremism in America”.
Perhaps that “exclusive” will sell a few more of your “BlazeTV memberships” to replace the ones you have lost from people like me who did as you requested and “did the homework” ourselves. And found out that there was a whole other “truth” to that Hutaree report than what you had, its called reality.
And in your drunkenness of new found attention, you were willing to crush even the innocent members to boost your image. Once a
So at the very end he said the ATF was tracing the weapons. Did they belong to the MIT police officer they killed? Did they kill him just to arm themselves?
It seems an easy feat for golden gloves boxer and a wrestler to disarm a single unsuspecting officer and kill him with one of his own weapons. Most police cars I’ve seen have a mounted shotgun. But the nighttime video I saw sounded more like rifle or pistol fire instead of shotgun.
April 22, 2013 at 3:39pm
Imagine, 2 know terrorists who only possessed and used bombs. Now know the cats out of the bag, and people will probably recognize them from the TV photos. They now want to be able to protect themselves.
Perhaps they don’t have a gun, but want one (or more). Where could they get one or more guns? Can’t apply for a license now….. Hmmmmm….
Here comes along a single police officer (MIT police) alone. Perhaps the Golden gloves boxing champion and HS wrestler could easily overpower the officer before he even saw it coming, take his gun(s) and kill him. Presto, they are armed.
But dang it, they forgot to get the gun permits first. Perhaps they didn’t get the permits because that would attract FBI interest, especially since the older had an assault on his record for beating his wife. Or he had FBI already question him due to Russia inquiry about potential terrorist ties……
