Cop Shoots and Kills A Double-amputee In Wheelchair! WTF! (link incls vid)

Some police are running amok __killing people when a tazer could have served the purpose and tazering individuals when there is no real threat or reason to do so. And, seldom, if ever, are they charged for their brutality/crime. (emphasis mine)

In an incident outside of a group home in Houston, a police officer shot and killed a wheelchair bound, double-amputee after the man threatened his partner.

Unfortunately the object with which the man was threatening the officer’s partner turned out to be a pen.

John Garcia is the owner of the home at 4309 Polk where Brian Claunch, a schizophrenic man in his 40’s, has been living for the past 18 months with two other men. Garcia has reportedly operated the personal care home for the past eight years.

Claunch apparently caused a disturbance and became agitated when his caretaker refused to give him a soda and a cigarette. Garcia then called the police.

According to police representatives, when the two officers arrived, the disabled man cornered one officer and threatened him with a metal object. Garcia said that Claunch ignored officers’ commands and made threats against them and other occupants of the home.

Houston Police Department spokeswoman, Jodi Silva said, “He was approaching them aggressively. He was attempting to stab them with what is now found to be a pen.”

According to Silva, Matthew Marin, a five-year Houston Police Department veteran, fired his weapon at least one time, fearing for his partner’s safety and his own. Claunch died at the scene.

Garcia, owner of the group home told the Houston Chronicle that the deceased, Brian Claunch, was mentally ill. “He sometimes would go off a bit, but you just ignore it,” Garcia said.

He said that Claunch had reportedly lost his arm and leg after being hit by a train.

The shooting officer, Marin, has been placed on three-day administrative leave, which is a standard procedure for all officer-involved shootings. Marin was reportedly involved in another fatal suspect shooting three years ago.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
