Accountability? Transparency? They’re the Cops!

JusticeSo what happens when cops investigate cops? A Police Chief Was ‘Concerned’ About How His Department Handled Police Shootings, So He Kept It a Secret.

In the deposition, Ramsay admits that after he took the job in 2016, he noticed that investigators looking into on-duty shootings often asked leading questions that prompted fellow officers to claim self-defense. Ramsay reportedly said he specifically had “concerns” about the integrity of the Professional Standards Bureau’s investigations into deadly force. The Bureau is the body that determines if officers violated police policy.

So in the high-profile SWATing case that killed Andrew Finch, the unarmed Finch was shot by a sniper from 50 yards. (Though that isn’t far. Navy rifle matches are shot – at my club – at 100, 200 and 600 yards). His crime? He opened the front door of his house to see what the hell was going on.

And of course that isn’t the only problem in Wichita.

In 2013, the names of about 30 Wichita officers wound up on a list of cops who had committed crimes or violations involving dishonesty. The FBI launched a separate investigation into an alleged cover-up involving Wichita Police Department officers’ misconduct in 2017, the Wichita Eagle reports. In 2018, two Wichita cops were indicted in an illegal gambling and public corruption case.

Just one officer having a bad day? Not hardly.

He Thought Robbing a Cellphone Store Was a Good Idea

He was wrong. Police identify robbery suspect shot by phone store clerk in Overland Park.

A man had entered the store, displayed a firearm and demanded items, police said. When the man jumped over the counter, the store clerk shot him.

He died at the scene.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Teenager or Adult? The Media Seems Confused

He got shot, so it is much more anti-gun to say he was a teenager. Wichita teen shot in leg by liquor store clerk pleads guilty to armed robbery.

While I suppose being 19 still qualifies someone as a “teenager,” he’s actually an adult of legal age, and is going away for a while.

A Wichita teenager has admitted to robbing a liquor store where the clerk shot him and held him at gunpoint before police arrived.

Rayquan Hill, 19, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of robbery

And he took that plea so they don’t charge him with a bunch of similar robberies from 2018.

Prosecutors also agreed not to file charges against Hill in connection to four other liquor store robberies in 2018. They include an April 10 robbery at F&K Liquor, an April 19 robbery at Dave’s Liquors, an April 27 robbery at ABC Liquors and a May 11 robbery of Judy’s Liquor.

This isn’t the only story to call this guy a teenager; they are all equally stupid.

I Don’t Often See Articles About Bounty Hunters

But they’re out there… Suspect shot by bail bondsman during attempted apprehension.

Topeka Police say the suspect was shot by a bail bondsman, who was attempting to take the suspect into custody.

They say the bondsman shot the suspect in self-defense after he was attacked with a large metal lamp.

No charges filed. No names released. Self-defense is a human-right.

Prosecutors Really Hate Self-defense

JusticeAnd some judges don’t like it either. Kansas Supreme Court again overturns Shawnee County murder conviction.

First up, the prosecutor.

The Kansas Attorney General’s office argued that Qualls only needed to fire one shot if he were acting in self-defense, a suggestion panned by justices during a December hearing. As Qualls emptied his gun, Rosen said in Friday’s ruling, he didn’t know if he even hit Beier.

Then the judge

During the 2014 retrial, Rios refused to tell the jury that self-defense was an option because there was no indication at the time of the shooting that there were any weapons in the bar.

If you twitch the wrong way during a traffic stop, a cop will shoot you – even if you are unarmed – and they will be all over self-defense. This guy was already injured, and he and his wife fled the scene they were fired on. But the State HATES self-defense.

How Should a 74-year-old Defend Herself from a Home Invader?

If not with a firearm that is? No charges filed against 74-year-old woman who fatally shot burglar.

You could also file this under, “A failure of the victim-selection process.” He probably thought she would be easy to rob.

Leavenworth County will not file charges against a 74-year-old woman who shot and killed a man as he broke into her home.

Unfortunately, she suffered a heart attack right after she shot the guy breaking in on Saturday. (She is recovering.)

And in strange twist, the family of the guy who got shot, isn’t surprised, or even upset.

“She was protecting herself, and I’m not mad at her at all. I would have done the same thing. I think anybody would,” said Elvis Byrd who wasn’t surprised to hear what happened to his big brother, Ralph Byrd Jr. on Saturday night. “I’ve been saying for quite a while now that Ralph was either going to get himself shot stealing from somebody or he was going to OD on heroin.”

So what would the Left have her do? Without the means to defend themselves, the old and the infirm will be at the mercy of the young and the violent.

Self-defense is a human-right, and it appears to be your legal-right in Kansas.

Another Self-created “Hate Crime”

I guess kids don’t read “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” anymore. Must not be PC. Or something. Racist note on K-State apartment door was a hoax.

Investigators say the student admitted making the sign and hanging it.

The school says they will handle the situation “in accordance with applicable disciplinary procedures.” Officials did not define what that entailed.

Because you need to be victim to gain victim-status. (Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.)
