Cop Kills Deaf Man For Not Responding to Shouted Commands

Yet another trigger happy Cop murder of a brown man.

He Can’t Hear You!’: Deaf Man Shot Dead by Oklahoma City Police as Neighbors Scream in Horror

A deaf man carrying a metal pipe was fatally shot by Oklahoma City police on Tuesday night as neighbors frantically tried to tell officers that he couldn’t hear their commands.

Magdiel Sanchez, 35, was shot and Tasered on a porch on Tuesday around 8:15 p.m. after he allegedly advanced toward officers following a hit-and-run involving his father, Police Capt. Bo Mathews said Wednesday.

The Victim, Magdiel Sanchez

The encounter unfolded after witnesses called police to report the hit-and-run, and said the driver, Sanchez’s father, had fled the scene and driven to the residence. Mathews did not know if anyone was injured in the crash, but said the car hadn’t struck anyone. Sanchez was not in the car at the time of the hit-and-run and had no criminal history, officials said.

Upon arriving at the house to investigate the accident, Lt. Matthew Lindsey saw Sanchez on the porch, holding a 2-foot-long metal pipe “wrapped in some type of material” with a small leather loop on the end of it, Mathews said.

A neighbor, Jolie Guebara, later told The Associated Press that Sanchez often carried the pipe to fend off stray dogs when he went for walks at night.

The lieutenant perceived the pipe as a weapon and called for backup. Sgt. Chris Barnes arrived.

“When the other unit arrived, verbal commands were being given to this individual to drop the weapon and get on the ground,” Mathews said.

Instead of doing that, Sanchez kept moving toward officers, Mathews said. Lindsey and Barnes ordered him to “drop the weapon and get on the ground.”

That’s when witnesses started yelling “he can’t hear you,” according to Mathews.

“The witnesses were yelling that this person, Mr. Sanchez, was deaf, and could not hear,” he said. “The officers did not know this as the time.”

Mathews did not know whether the officers heard the witnesses’ screams.

He said Lindsey then deployed his Taser and Barnes fired a gun when Sanchez had got about 15 feet away from them.

Both struck him. Sanchez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sanchez’s father, who was not named, confirmed to police that his son was deaf.

Barnes is being put on paid administrative leave. It wasn’t known how many shots he fired, but it was “more than one,” Mathews said, adding that the case was being investigated as a homicide.

The officers who shot and Tasered Sanchez did not have body cameras on — the department is in the process of getting them — and Mathews said he did not know why they didn’t respond to neighbors’ warnings that Sanchez was deaf.

“When you have a weapon out, you can get what they call tunnel vision,” he said, “or you can lock into just the person who has the weapon, the threat against you.”

Another Case of “The Black Guy Did It!” Falls Apart

Another one of those racist false accusations…More than likely another Chumph supporter.

 

Minnesota security guard accidentally shot himself — then sent police after a bogus ‘black male’ suspect

Minnesota man was arrested on Wednesday after he accidentally shot himself in the arm—then told police he was attacked by an armed “black male.”

Brent Patrick Ahlers, a 25-year old security guard at St. Catherine University, shot himself in the shoulder Tuesday night, prompting a campus-wide lock-down and building-to-building school sweep, City Pages reports. Authorities conducted an “exhaustive” search for the suspect after Ahlers told police a “black male” was responsible for his injury.

A local police scanner monitor reported authorities were searching for a “black male, navy blue sweatshirt with the word “Navy” on it., black jeans and a short afro.”

“It had basically 1,800 students held captive in their dorm rooms at St. Catherine’s, it had residents of the Mac-Groveland and Highland Park communities fearing they would be hurt in their homes,” Sgt. Mike Ernster said Wednesday night.

St. Paul Police eventually called off the search after they failed to locate the suspect. It wasn’t until the following day that Ahlers admitted he pulled the trigger “while handling a gun he wasn’t supposed to have on campus,” according to City Pages. The security guard was reportedly afraid of losing his job.

Ahlers has been charged with falsely reporting a crime.

Lisa Clark, a St. Paul resident, told City Pages Ahler’s lie put “everyone … on edge and high alter.”

“I was angry that he subjected the entire neighborhood to this huge police presence, that people were afraid being out and about,” she said, noting Ahler’s false reporting tapped “into people’s racism.”

“Warning! Easily Startled Police” Signs Posted in Twin Cities

I hope whoever did this puts them up all over town.

This street sign, warning of "easily startled" Twin Cities police, was put up on a corner in St. Paul, Minnesota. Another was put up in Minneapolis.

Street signs warning of ‘easily startled’ police posted around Twin Cities

One week after an unarmed Minneapolis woman was killed in an officer-involved shooting, street signs criticizing “easily startled” police have popped up in the Twin Cities.

The orange traffic sign lookalikes depict a police officer jumping in the air, discharging a gun with each hand. “Warning,” the signs read, “Twin Cities Police easily startled.”
St. Paul Police Department spokesman Steve Linders confirmed there was at least one sign in St. Paul and another in Minneapolis. Linders didn’t comment on any reaction from officers to the signs.
“We are aware of the signs and Minneapolis Public Works is removing them,” Minneapolis Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Catherine Michal said. “We have no further comment at this time.”
The sign appeared about a week after Minneapolis police shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk, who had called 911 to report a possible assault. Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau stepped down six days later.
Ruszczyk’s death was the latest of several fatal officer-involved shootings in Minnesota. Philando Castile was shot and killed by a St. Anthony officer during a traffic stop in July 2016, sparking nationwide protests. Less than a year earlier, a Minneapolis officer fatally shot Jamar Clark after a scuffle with officers in front of an apartment building.
Addy Free spotted the St. Paul sign at a busy intersection Sunday morning on his way home from work. He snapped a photo, which has since been shared over 18,000 times on Facebook.
“I wish there weren’t so much truth to the sign,” Free said. “Police are given a challenging job, with not enough training to counter overreaction and implicit bias.”
The next morning, when Free went by the place where the sign had been, it was gone. The sign was taken down because it was attached to a legitimate street sign, Linders said, but he was unsure if the incident was being investigated as vandalism.
Free said the sign appeared to be made of metal and that it had the same thickness as the real street sign above it.
“It was not painted,” he said. “It looked like a high quality decal or print like the sign above it.”

They Shoot Black Folks, Brown Folks…And Dogs

More trigger happy policing – this time shooting a family’s support dogs in their back yard!

And then lied about it.

The Cops are in trouble now! You see in America, you can shoot and murder unarmed Negroes…Shooting white folks dogs is a hanging offense!

 

Police say they shot two dogs who ‘charged’ at an officer. Then the homeowner posted her video.

 

Before the gunfire, the injured dogs and the accusations of police misconduct, the home security video makes one thing clear: In the gated back yard, the animals and the officer are surprised to see each other.

That Saturday night interaction — an officer-involved shooting that left two emotional-support dogs seriously injured — has embroiled the Minneapolis Police Department in controversy.

Video of the shooting recorded by an overhead security camera has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, including by many animal lovers who are calling for the officer’s badge.

The dogs — Ciroc and Rocko — are both Staffordshire terriers that Jennifer LeMay and her children have had since they were puppies, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. They’re emotional support dogs for LeMay’s two sons, who both suffer from anxiety.

According to the Star Tribune, a friend had been dog-sitting while LeMay and her two daughters were camping. But the trio decided to come home early, and one daughter accidentally triggered the home’s alarm system Saturday night. They called the alarm company, which canceled the alert, but the police were already on their way.

On scene, one officer stayed at the front of the house, the newspaper reported, and another hopped the fence and began looking around the back.

There’s no sound in the video, which LeMay ultimately posted to Facebook.

In the video, the officer has already hopped the fence into the yard and briefly steps out of the camera frame as he investigates.

When he appears again, he’s backpedaling and his gun is raised. The reason for the retreat becomes obvious a few seconds later: A gray and white dog pads into the camera frame.

Its tail is wagging as it closes the distance to the officer, who has his back to the locked gate. The dog appears distracted and doesn’t beeline for the officer. As it closes to within a few feet, the officer fires a single shot. The dog jumps back, falls and rolls on the ground as it tries to get away.

Around that time, a second dog, Rocko, enters the frame. The officer fires at the second dog, and it sprints away.

The Minneapolis Police Department released a statement confirming that the incident happened but did not try to explain the officer’s thinking or rationale for firing. The department also didn’t identify the officer.

“Anytime an officer discharges their firearm in the line of duty there is an investigation that is completed by the Minneapolis Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit,” the statement said. “We are in the process of reviewing the video posted online, as well as the officer’s body camera video. We have reached out to the owner of the dogs and will continue to do so during the investigation.”

A police report obtained by the Star Tribune said the dogs charged at the officer.

“While staging at the rear, two large-size pit bulls charged at officer,” the police report narrative said. “Officer dispatched the two dogs, causing them to run back into the residence.”

Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau released a statement Monday afternoon saying the department was “implementing updated mandatory training” about officer-dog encounters.

“I’ve watched the video, and as someone whose family has included dogs most of my life, I can say that it was difficult to watch,” the statement said. “This was an outcome that no one wanted. I’ve asked for an Internal Affairs use of force review. We are reaching out to the family to help them with the veterinary care bills to ensure that both dogs are adequately taken care of.”

Still, LeMay was livid. She declined to be interviewed for this story Monday afternoon, saying “I’ve lawyered up.” Her attorney did not immediately respond to a message.

But she raged about the incident on Facebook.

“Xfinity home central services and 4th precinct can expect to be seeing and hearing from my lawyer bright n early monday morning,” she said on Facebook. “I WILL GET F‑‑‑‑‑‑ JUSTICE FOR MY KIDS! THERE IS NO PENNY OR DOLLAR VALUE TOO WHAT THESE BABIES MEAN TO MY FAMILY, EXTENDED FAMILY, FRIENDS OR ANYONE WHOS LIVES THEYVE BRIGHTENED DAILY! #knowthat”

She told Minneapolis CBS-affiliate WCCO that she’d racked up thousands of dollars in veterinary bills and posted pictures of her dogs’ conditions: Ciroc wrapped in a cone and with bandages on an injured jaw; Rocko with surgical drainage tubes on a stitched belly.

Officer Injured in Louisiana Shooting Sues BLM

Unless the Judge is a Trumpazoid, I can’t see this getting beyond a preliminary…

Officer Injured In Baton Rouge Shooting Sues Black Lives Matter Leaders

DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders were named as defendants.

A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday, accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.

The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

It came on the one-year anniversary of one of the deadliest days in modern U.S. history for law enforcement. On July 7, 2016, a black man angered by what he saw as deadly racial bias in U.S. policing launched a downtown Dallas sniper attack, killing five officers deployed at a protest decrying police shootings of black men.

McKesson was not immediately available for comment and Black Lives Matter leaders have denied accusations that their movement promotes violence against police.

About 10 days after the Dallas shooting, a decorated ex-U.S. Marine sergeant opened fire on police in Baton Rouge, killing three officers.

Baton Rouge had been hit by waves of protests after two police officers earlier that month killed a black man, Alton Sterling, under questionable circumstances. The incident was caught on video and sparked national debate.

The officer wounded in Baton Rouge, who was not named in the lawsuit, was shot by “a person violently protesting against police, and which violence was caused or contributed to by the leaders of and by ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’,” the filing said.

Gavin Long, the black gunman who killed the Baton Rouge officers and was later shot dead, identified himself as a member of an African-American offshoot of the anti-government, mostly white Sovereign Citizen Movement, documents showed. Last year, McKesson and two other activists sued the Baton Rouge police department and other officials over the arrests of nearly 200 demonstrators during mostly peaceful protests over police killings.
