    cops lied about the knife too

    by cloudyplayer438 1 hour 32 minutes ago
    cloudyplayer438 cloudyplayer438 53 minutes ago Flag

    the video shows the cops shooting the guy 9 times, firing several times as he lay on the ground.... then, incredibly they seem to handcuff his dead body...... and no knife can be see and the guys hands were always down....
    the police are going to have to explain why they said he had a knife and was holding it in threatening way......

  • A Republican city councilman in Missouri apologized this week for posting racist messages about President Obama on Facebook, citing his own strong engagement with the Republican Party as the reason behind his actions.

    According to television station KFVS, Poplar Bluff, Mo., councilman Peter Tinsley's offensive posts were brought up during a city council meeting on Monday night. Tinsley apologized for his behavior, saying he didn't intend to offend anyone when he made those posts last year, reported KFVS.

    "I apologize from the bottom of my heart," Tinsley said. "At one time, I was a very active republican, very opposed to Obama."

    the police, moron have not said how many shots Wilson fired... and the statement was from the police...jeez.... and really, isn't it obvious that brown ran? his body was 35 ft from where the cop got out of the car...........

  • police admit in their version that Brown was running away when Wilson started shooting.....

    (below is from NT Times on the police version of what happened.... clearly the cop was shooting as they ran away...note he missed.... could have shot a bystander..... remains to be seen how many rounds he fired... 7 so far are known )

    "As Officer Wilson got out of his car, the men were running away. The officer fired his weapon but did not hit anyone, according to law enforcement officials"

    Really hard to spin a video

    the cops said the guy held a knife in a threatening "overhand" grip.... they said that before the video of the shooting surfaced.... in which no knife can be seen and his hands were down......

    " Powell approached them, telling them to shoot him. And without the slightest hesitation, they did, firing nine shots in rapid succession into Powell at close range, several of the shots occurring after he had already fallen to the ground. Then they had the audacity to cuff him, ridiculously acting as if a man with nine bullets in him, who for all the world looked dead or unconscious on the ground, was still a threat. It was all over within seconds of their arrival on the scene.

    Powell's actions looked to me to be a deliberate, symbolic provocation of police, clearly intended to induce a replay similar to the events which had recently occurred with Michael Brown, who had been shot while surrendering with arms raised, allegedly minutes after taking cigarillos from a nearby store. And the police behaved exactly as Powell expected they would.

    Powell allegedly had a knife, although one is not visible in the video, and his arms were not raised in aggression, and he was not brandishing any weapon in a threatening manner. They could have easily backed away 30 paces, deescalated the situation, talked him down. They could have tasered him (or maybe not), or any other number of nonlethal methods. No, in my mind this was murder. We expect more from police. We expect professionalism. We expect them to think before acting.

    The police, in an earlier press conference, before the revealing video had been released, had clearly lied about Powell having allegedly threatened the shooting officers with a knife in an "overhand grip". In the video, Powell's hands are at his side, with no overhand motion. No object is visible in his hands."

  • (note that the officer fired more than six rounds, he missed and lucky he didn't kill anyone else shooting at the running jaywalkers)

    Law Enforcement Officials Admit Officer Wilson Fired at Michael Brown as He Ran Away

    A big admission, and a key piece of the puzzle

    By Charles Johnson.....

    ...However, law enforcement officials said.......
    "As Officer Wilson got out of his car, the men were running away. The officer fired his weapon but did not hit anyone, according to law enforcement officials"

  • I guess you know by now that the story of the "bum rush" came from a talk show phone call
    from an ".anonymous "friend" of the cops "fiancé" giving out a third hand account "

    actual eye witnesses saw the cop gun down an unarmed Michael Brown who had his hands up and who died 35 feet.............. and actual eyewitnesses said the cop banged his own face because when he opened his car door next to the jaywalkers it hit one and bounced back hitting him in the face..... the witness described this before their was talk of a cop injury and sure maybe the jaywalkers pushed the door back to bang Wilson...

  • cloudyplayer438 cloudyplayer438 17 hours ago Flag

    gee stupid I guess you missed that the anonymous source on phone talk show with the "bum rush" story was total bs.... from a friend of Wilson's fiancé reporting what she heard some one else say 3 rd hand.
    and the ABC story cites an "anonymous source close to Wilson" jeez... his mom?

  • cloudyplayer438 cloudyplayer438 17 hours ago Flag

    even the new ABC report is from an anonymous source... ie Wilson's buddies.....jeez.
    ABC cites the "source close to Wilson"....... no name......just more bs.....

    rick perry is ok with gop DAs busted for drunk driving on his watch. and heck his former boss W was arrested for drunk driving, lied about being arrested for dwi, and then lied about why he lied.... not politics, you see, he lied to protect his daughters....jeez

    the reason Perry wants to get rid of the DA and even defund ethic violations.... is that he is trying to squash the investigations of his cronies and his own use of tax money for gop politics and to line the pockets of gop donors........one Perry slush fund the Cancer Research and Prevention Institute (CPRIT), ...... The entire scientific review team, including Nobel Laureate scientists, resigned because they said millions were handed out through political favoritism. Investigations by Texas newspapers indicated much of the money was ending up in projects proposed by campaign donors and supporters of Governor Perry. In fact, one of the executives of CPRIT was indicted in the PIU investigation for awarding an $11 million dollar grant to a company without the proposal undergoing any type of review."

    Rick Perry slush fund scandal

    cloudyplayer438 cloudyplayer438 19 hours ago Flag

    Perry might want to have prayer fest for supporters to pray that his use of tax money for gop political and business cronies stays hidden....Perry likes to make a big display of prayer....

    but the Perry scandal at the texas cancer research institute didn't help :

    "The entire scientific review team, including Nobel Laureate scientists, resigned because they said millions were handed out through political favoritism.

    What Perry did wrong

    by billtimmee 22 hours ago
    cloudyplayer438 cloudyplayer438 19 hours ago Flag

    dear bumbo... the drunk Boehner was not requested by Obama to quit his job... with the added threat that he would cut off funding to congress otherwise. THAT is what Perry did do.... quit... or defunding will end your agency............ and the hypocrite and #$%$ perry demand she quit for a dwi that she was punished over....... he has not demanded 2 gop DAs quit over THEIR dwis... and one Perry gop admin guy got promoted after his dwi........ so, dwi is not the issue...... the issue is
    that perry Is corrupt and one of his cronies who was indicted last year might spill the beans on perry using state money as a political and crony slush fund.....Perry really needs to shut that office down because they are uncovering his corruption.....

    grandstanding perry spends $4 million a week to post 300 thumb twidlers along the 1200 mile texas border per shift.............. and he rode around in a jeep with Hannity and a machine gun.

    Rick Perry's Cancer Slush Fund Executive Indicted

    There's been a scandal brewing for some time regarding the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). .....the agency, which was created to fund cancer research in Texas, was redirecting millions to GOP donors:

    Republican Gov. Rick Perry and his cronies in and out of public office have diverted funds intended for cutting-edge cancer research into the campaign pockets of Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. You read that right. Proceeds from millions in taxpayer-backed bonds awarded by the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) have fallen victim to corruption and cronyism. Cronies get the state money; the cronies give some of the money back to Perry and others. .."

    I guess you are too stupid to realize that the ONLY real eyewitnesses that have given statements to the police tell stories that confirm that the cop was in no danger....... the so-called "bum rush" witness is an anonymous radio talk show phone call...jeez... who also claimed that the cop knew about the cigars....... which the police dept has already said is not the case, the police dept have stated that the cop did not know about the cigars.....
