I saw the following on the news today. The police can just kill un-armed drivers of cars if they refuse to turn off the car? This kid did not drive at the officers. He was not in a moving car. This cop should be fired and jailed and murder and hanged by the neck until he is dead.
“A father called police on his son to teach him a lesson for taking his truck, but the day ended in tragedy after Ames police officers shot the young Iowan teen dead.
After getting in an argument with his dad over a pack of cigarettes, Tyler stole his dad’s truck and was fatally shot by police.
Monday started with an argument between James Comstock and his 19-year-old son, Tyler Comstock, after the father refused to buy his son cigarettes. To get even, Tyler stole his father’s truck and raced away, but James Comstock called police, ready to teach his rebellious teenage son a lesson, Gawker reported.
Ames Police Officer Adam McPherson responded to the call and noticed the lawn care company vehicle. The ensuing pursuit led to the Iowa State University campus where Tyler entered into a brief standoff with police. After refusing to obey commands to turn off his engine, McPherson fired six shots into the truck and struck the teenager twice. Tyler was later pronounced dead from his gunshot wounds.
According to the official report on the incident, McPherson’s actions were necessary in order “to stop the ongoing threat to the public and the offiers.”
But Tyler’s family didn’t see it that way, and said his son was unarmed at the time.
“So he didn’t shut the damn truck off, so let’s fire six rounds at him?” exclaimed Gary Shepley, Tyler’s step-grandfather. “We’re confused, and we don’t understand.”
The family is demanding answers and is even more confused after learning one officer had suggested twice the chase be called off.”
Yet Another Story
Two weeks ago, some police in California shot a kids playing with a “Toy Airsoft” Rifle, this along with the story makes ut seems like the police kill more innocent teenagers then ‘Members of teenager Murder gangs” in large cities.
Now I actually own a Airsoft ak-47 and I own 3 other 3 real AKs. So I know the difference. But the story in California just streams the the Cop is a tremendous coward who got off on legally killing a 13 year old boy. The boy is facing away from the cop, when the cop screams at him to drop the weapon. Isn’t every 13 year teenager going to turn towards the person screaming at him. This kid did and the cowardly, piece of trash police officer, killed him. Now I have no issue with the police. I have major issues with this Killer Cop. He should be fired, charged with murder and raped repeated by every inmate in the California jail system. That is what I would call justice.
Yet meanwhile, teenage murder gangs run free in big cities around the country. And they never seemed to be attacked or fought by police. Where are the police, they are all out shooting innocent teenagers. Much less risk for them in those cases.
