There are way, way too many—like 3-5 daily of of astounding police injustices—to blog anywhere near all of them. I have another one in queue, but that’s taking research because of the surprising and shocking kicker I have in store after 19 years after being exposed to the idea. This one just came up and I consider it urgent, from a Public Service Announcement perspective.
Never, ever, ever, call the cops on someone ONLY because you want to teach them a lesson. Don’t even call the cops if you otherwise love or care about the person perturbing or threatening you if you can remove yourself from the situation and/or in any way aspire for a future reconciliation. That’s a judgment call, of course. You may indeed be better off if an abusive husband, boyfriend…or even wife or girlfriend…is dead—and you’re not on the hook for the murder.
Cops are predators in gang colors, differentiated principally from the gangs of LA and elsewhere by color of law.
…It was over a pack of cigarettes. See, they are deadly.
Dad Calls Cops on Son to Teach Him a Lesson, Cops Shoot Son Dead
A father’s attempt to teach his son a lesson for taking his truck without permission ended in tragedy Monday after a local police officer shot the teenager dead.
James Comstock told the Des Moines Register he called the police on his son Tyler after the latter took the former’s truck in retaliation for refusing to buy him cigarettes.
Ames Police Officer Adam McPherson reportedly spotted the lawn care company vehicle and pursued it onto the Iowa State University campus, where a brief standoff ensued after Tyler allegedly refused orders to turn off the engine.
McPherson eventually fired six shots into the truck, two of which struck Tyler who was later pronounced dead.
You can actually hear the entire audio of the call and chase here. Including this:
The family’s demands for answers got even louder following the revelation that a member of the Ames police department suggested twice that officers call off the chase.
I heard that distinctly, because I listened to it. Zero ambiguity. Basically: “We know where he lives, we can follow up later, not a threat, back off.”
I have a very hard time having sympathy for dad (other family members, absolutely). Your first charge is to protect your children that haven’t flown the coop. He failed miserably, so having any sympathy is, to me, the absolute wrong thing to do. What he did would be like bringing in a venomous snake to teach his son that he ought not be afraid of mice.
There is really only one thing for that father to do, and that’s for him to put a bullet in himself, in the same place where it proved fatal for his son.
And that is all.
