- Authorities Fear Cops Being Targeted After at Least 11
Officers Shot in 24 Hours
- Published January 25, 2011 FoxNews.com
- "Authorities are worried a recent wave of police
officer shootings may not be a coincidence. In just 24 hours, at least
11 cops were shot around the country.
- The most recent incident at a fugitive's house in St.
Petersburg, Fla., left two officers dead and a U.S. marshal wounded Monday.
Hours earlier, an Oregon officer was critically wounded after being shot
multiple times during a traffic stop.
- Monday's violence followed a bloody Sunday that left
an officer in Indianapolis critically wounded during a traffic stop shooting,
four officers in Indianapolis wounded after a gunman opened fire in a precinct
and two more officers in Washington wounded in a shootout in a Walmart
- "It's not a fluke," Richard Roberts, a spokesman
for the International Union of Police Associations, told MSNBC.com. "There's
a perception among officers in the field that there's a war on cops going
- Kirwan: Indeed there well might be a war going on against
the cops because of what they continue to do to ordinary people, mostly
without any provocation whatsoever. Fox News is trying to blame this on
some imagined-conspiracy against the cops but they would do well to note
ALL the facts before they jump to any real conclusions.
- For instance cops no longer keep records of the number
of people they routinely Taser, torture or sometimes kill in custody: So
far they have murdered over 200 people, in cold blood. That tends to stay
with the families and friends of those victims, just as what our "troops"
routinely do to those they arrest, torture and sometimes murder in our
unilateral and illegal wars abroad: There too we have generated a huge
number of additional enemies by how we conduct ourselves in foreign places.
- Now we're doing the exact same thing to Americans here
at home because this country is waking up to the FACT that we are the enemy
which this government is determined to capture, subdue or kill: On orders
from those that hired these mercenary criminals to wear uniforms and pretend
to be cops, when in reality these creatures are nothing but a bunch of
thugs without badge numbers or name tags.

- "Florida officers Tom Baitinger and Jeffrey Yaslowitz
were killed Monday when agents tried to arrest 39-year-old Hydra Lacy Jr.
on an aggravated battery charge. Police believe Lacy opened fire on the
agents, also injuring an U.S. marshal.
- Lacy, who was found dead at home following an hour-long
standoff, had a long and violent criminal record including a sexual battery
- In Oregon, a gunman is still on the loose after shooting
officer Steven Dodds, 45, during a traffic stop Monday. Police say the
gunman, driving a 1984 Dodge truck, led police on a chase after the shooting
and fired several shots at officers but missed, before being stopped by
spike strips and escaping on foot into a wooded area. He is described as
armed and extremely dangerous.
- Indianapolis Police Chief Paul Ciesielski says he believes
60-year-old Thomas Hardy is the man who shot officer David Moore twice
in the face and in his chest and leg during a traffic stop Sunday, critically
- The Indiana Department of Correction says Hardy had a
criminal history dating back to at least 1984, when he was sentenced to
13 years in prison on a burglary conviction. He was released on parole
in 1990, but has been in and out of prison since then on various charges,
including seven sentences for theft, one for cocaine possession and one
for misdemeanor battery.
- Detectives in Port Orchard, Wash., are investigating
why a man ran from deputies and then opened fire in a Walmart parking lot
Sunday, sparking a shootout that left him and the woman he apparently was
with dead and two officers wounded.
- The Kitsap County Sheriff's deputies were answering a
call about a suspicious person at the store. When they located the man
and tried talking to him he ran, then opened fire as the officers followed.
- Both men were hit and unable to return gunfire, but a
female officer arriving on the scene shot and killed the gunman, sheriff's
spokesman Scott Wilson said. Authorities said it wasn't immediately known
who shot the woman, who died later at a Tacoma hospital.
- And in Detroit, 38-year-old Lamar D. Moore was fatally
shot after opening fire at a police station, wounding the precinct commander,
two sergeants and an officer the day before a family spokesman said his
brother was to be sentenced in a double-homicide case.
- "There's nothing in this that makes sense at all,"
Police Chief Ralph Godbee told reporters during a briefing on the case.
- While all the shootings don't appear to be connected,
Roberts says they have one thing in common.
- "We don't have any data, but there seems to be a
type of criminal out there looking to thwart authority," he told the
- Kirwan: Is FOX NEWS really suggesting that 'somehow'
all these creatures came together and planned to shoot cops on a particular
day? Part of a national movement? Do we even know if these people can read?
Afterall; over 42% of Americans are functionally illiterate, and given
the level of tracking and spying which this government has now spent trillions
- the last ten years: WHY didn't someone inside DHS find
these people and STOP them before they started killing cops: Isn't that
what they always tell us they are doing all this spying for; just to protect
us from the bad guys!
- If they can't protect their own mercenaries from us,
then 'what's it really all about? Just another pack of lies put out by
the same people that brought us the 911 debacle. That was the hour and
forty-five minute show on FOX NEWS, one of their finest moments, during
which they got to spread a whole lot of lies under the color of US Patriotism
that lay bleeding all over their totally skewed reporting of a mega-crime
which they pre-labeled an attack upon the US by a foreign power? And now
- I wrote about this "potential backlash" back
in February of 2008.
- "Your numbers may be growing among the millions
of people wearing some kind of badge in the United States, but your days
are numbered. Not because of any direct threat from people like me; no
what I'm talking about here is the threat that you are creating all by
yourselves. If you had been paying attention you would have seen this coming
on your own.
- What the military and the mercenaries are doing in Iraq
and Afghanistan each of you is now doing here, in your own tiny little
world so full of arrogance and basic brutality. Every time you beat a man
senseless, or shame a woman to tears in front of her loved ones, or randomly
kill someone either by accident or by design it happens just because you
can so you make more than enemies you plant the seeds of your
own violent end." (2)
- Millions of people read that article in the last two
years and I have yet to hear a single word from anyone in a uniform that
challenged anything in it. Here's a bit more from that article:
- "That's what can be tracked about the current situation,
and that's what most of you see as your current job: the brutalizing, the
Tasering and or the killing of US citizens that fail in some small way
to obey your every command no matter how unreasonable. It seems no
one knows exactly how many you have killed, as your departments fail to
keep such records but when one is too many then a hundred or
more amounts to a mutiny against the very people you are sworn to serve.
Here's a rough history of your recent activities, in part.
- What you don't seem to realize is that when you take
off the Kevlar, and unstrap both your weapons, you need a shower, possibly
a shave if you're male, and you'll need to grab something to eat. If you
live in the Burbs which most cops do, you probably have "friends"
and maybe you might want to go to a game or just get together with "friends."
In brief you do what other people do unless you're a robot living in a
barrack somewhere dark and semi-distant. If you have a family they have
their lives to live as well, grocery shopping, school etc. just like other
people except that you are not like other people! You have become
a secret enforcer, the muscle and bullets of the fascist state incarnate.
And that makes you and yours into targets for those that you have wronged.
- What used to protect you was the good will of the people
you served, but with that out-of-the-way now, because you've put yourself
beyond the law and above the people that once cared whether you lived or
died your world has changed almost as much as ours: Only you still
have no clue about the consequences that are coming!
- When you do what you do to ordinary people your actions
affect the lives of a great many people beyond the targets of your brutality
and those people whether adults or children will not forget. Meanwhile
you have forgotten that you are not Supermen or Superwomen, you're just
flesh and blood like all the rest of us: and with every day that passes
the numbers of your enemies continue to increase by the hundreds, until
that figure reaches into the thousands, and you are beginning to close
in on that magic number now." (2)
- The point here is that for the public to believe that
anything in your fascist policies have even remotely changed you would
have to order your most violent officers to appear in public wearing t-shirts
with their names and badge numbers writ-large upon them, unarmed, and in
a public place before television cameras. The "officers" would
need to kneel before the cameras and clasp their hands behind their heads.
Then they would need to APOLOGIZE to the American people for being the
uniformed instruments of cowardice that they have become.
- If they agree to be RESPONSIBLE for their behavior in
public, before cameras and APOLOGIZE to America for brutalizing, torturing
and murdering so many of our citizens; only then can this country begin
to change from what these criminals have been shoving down our throats
for the last ten plus years!
- Will any of this ever happen? Not in a million years;
instead we'll probably see US tanks in the streets next; if we adhere to
what the Israeli's are still doing to the Palestinians, because we're going
to look just like Palestine and GAZA before this is over. But meanwhile
the cops are still going to be paying for what they do individually, because
that is the law of the jungle. The slab in the coroner's office is where
a lot more cops will be ending up sooner rather than later; just as the
illustration above depicts. There is no conspiracy, there doesn't need
to be, because these mercenaries have created their own future with every
person they abuse in any way; and now it looks like payback will really
be a bitch!
- Oh and you can skip all those cops coming to all those
funerals: they no longer represent the public: Not anymore! Besides if
your commanders had any brains at all, they might realize that several
hundred cops showing up from all over the nation might be a really bad
idea-especially if there are some out there that just want just to kill
more cops? That uniform that has been used and abused to terrorize the
population makes a really easy target for those that are not pleased with
what "the cops of today" seem to think is their "right"
by virtue of the nameless, badge-less uniform with body-armor for additional
- Welcome to our world, where no one is ever "SAFE"
from random acts of terror committed by authority wherever it might wish
to strike us, when we least expect it. How does it feel to KNOW that you're
nothing but a target 24-7, 365 days a year? This might just be beginning,
and you have only yourselves to thank for all of it!
