A Houston police officer shot and killed a double amputee wielding a pen as a weapon on Saturday. Of course the cowardly police officer claimed that the man was a threat to him and his partner. This is now what passes as everyday police work, as those in that profession continue to use deadly force in almost every situation, regardless of the fact that no risk is evident.
The officer said he was cornered, and was being threatened by a man in a wheelchair with an unknown weapon. The weapon, as mentioned earlier, was a pen. So let us get this straight; a man with two missing limbs cornered a heavily armed, police trained assassin, and the assassin (police officer) feared for his life. This is now the norm, but nonetheless, it is pathetic in every regard. This could just as easily have been an 85 year old woman with a knitting needle, as the police now see everyone as a risk to their person; even if it is ludicrous on its very face.
Here is the rub … If these criminals in blue uniforms see a double amputee with a pen as a deadly threat, what do they consider the rest of us? Are any of you beginning to understand the problem? Are any of you able to comprehend the danger in the cowardly attitude of the state agents of force? Do any of you feel safer knowing that your local police are willing to kill invalids with writing instruments because they fear for their life?
It is imperative that any who value liberty, privacy, and life, never under any circumstance call the police or 911. The person calling takes on all the risk of harm, including the risk of losing his own life.
It is high time that all protection sought by citizens (individuals) becomes private. It is time that the people control the criminal police, not the other way around. It is time to disarm all state agents of force, and for all citizens to arm themselves. If this were the case, none of these murderous cowards who call themselves protectors of the “public” would have any ability to cause fatal harm to those they pretend to protect.
