A model police murder

It is becoming increasingly apparent that some police are being intentionally trained to commit murder under the color of law:

Robert Cameron Redus was shot dead by officer Carter at 2 a.m. for nothing more than making a sarcastic remark toward the officer who pulled him over for speeding.. According to the police report, local KSAT News explains that witnesses affirmed that the cop literally “emptied his gun” into the student without warning.

“I didn’t hear him say anything like, ‘Get down on your hands and knees,’ you know?” one witness explained, “I didn’t hear him say anything. He just started shooting. He emptied the gun on him… Boom, boom, boom.Six shots — five or six.”

Mohammad Haidarasl also witnessed the murder, saying that Redus’ last words were “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?”

Redus couldn’t believe officer Carter would actually go that far, but Haidarasl added that the cop kept yelling “Stop resisting, stop resisting,” even though it was clear Redus was offering no physical residence, only sarcastic comments.

In addition to the small problem of the cop murdering the young man for the non-crime of being disrespectful, what is worrisome is the way the cop was deceitfully and repeatedly shouting “stop resisting” even as he fired his weapon.  This is a tactic meant to allow the police to claim a shooting is justified even when it isn’t; it is so deceptive that those who are training the police to attempt to deceive the public in this manner bear a moral responsibility for the citizens who are subsequently murdered by the police.

At this point, it is abundantly clear that the police are not going to control themselves. Their refusal to submit themselves to the very laws they are employed to uphold means that only the only hope for redress for the families of the victims is to take vengeance into their own hands.

The police love to talk a tough game. But have you noticed that they significantly change their tune when the public stops respecting their badges? If the police are going to rely upon their guns instead, well, perhaps they should keep in mind that the public has a lot more of them.
