Justice served

Cop killer shot and killed by the brotherhood:

Police in Seattle have shot and killed the man suspected of executing four Lakewood, Wash., police officers.

ABC News has confirmed that Maurice Clemmons was killed after police followed leads to a city address where he was hiding. Details of the early-morning confrontation weren't immediately available, but police have said gunfire was exchanged.

Seattle police had been watching several homes, with officers assigned to watch each location, authorities said today.

Clemmons, 37, had been the focus of an intense two-day manhunt that included a systematic raid of the homes of his friends and family, who were believed to have been helping him evade capture.

My hope is that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson aren't on the way to hold a press conference as to how Clemmons' civil rights were violated.

Since this IS Seattle, when will the cops who shot Clemmons go on trial for his 'execution'?

If SEALS can be court-marshalled for giving a terrorist a bloody lip, why can't Seattle cops be tried for killing only a suspect'?

A few relatively cheap bullets saved (or created) King and Pierce Counties millions of dollars in trials and appeals.

And I heard this on 710 KIRO on the way to work this morning: There are at least 7 friends and family members who aided and abetted Clemmons, misdirected authorities and obstructed justice. A KC prosecutor said "we'll be bringing the hammer down" and filing as many charges as possible. (Lack of morality and humanity shown by these people is sickening.)

None of this, however, brings back these fine cops to their families. 9 kids are still without a mom and dad, and that just tears at your heart.

Thanks for the speedy trial.

I await more mind numbing ditties. In the meantime I'll point out the following:

Most people probably think they already know all they need to know about the folks on this thread that only have time in their lives to piss and moan, but I have some new information to bring to light. Let us note first, of all the majority of these folks on this thread that piss and moan, they clearly exhibit their inability to deal with lifes realities when trying to contaminate clear thinking with their bad-tempered hastily mounted slur campaigns. Well, surprise, surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle would say. Those that piss and moan are simply deluding themselves. They wish for others to believe that it's conceited to make a cause célèbre out of exposing their lack of morals for what they really are. You know what I think of that, don't you? I think that it's worthless to take the time to review the basic issues at the root of the debate with these clowns that only piss and moan. If I wished to bother with something more exciting, I'd go outside and watch the wind blow. But ... indeed I do get a kick out of watching losers piss into the wind. Don't get any on ya'...

See you all ... It's time to set sail.

Fantastic, or not, what is true is the response was more than you deserved considering you parachuted into the thread made some completely unsubstantiated assertion about brain size and gun size.

Tell ya what, you provide the link to this so called "science" then we'll have a reasoned discussion about it, until then piss off.

SFC Miller:

I am not a lefty and I seriously resent being labeled one just because I don't agree with everything said here. Dissent is patriotic and this doesn't change just because you don't agree with what I am saying. I am very conservative but I also believe in the rule of law as upheld by the police that were murdered. Secondly yes, I am a firm believer in the right to self-defense and to return force with force.
I haven't read anywhere that he opened fire on the officer that was investigating the stolen vehicle in question. All I have heard is that he was standing on the street and did not stop moving when the officer ordered him to halt and show his hands. He didn't brandish a weapon or make threatening moves towards the officer.

I'm sure the Clemmons family has already obtained a lawyer so that a "unnecessary use of force" lawsuit can be filed. After all, the poor guy was probably on his way to the local church to seek forgiveness.....again.

Then we'll all be inundated with the horror stories of his early life. How he was an aspiring concert violinist who was always put down by the man and saw his dreams torn apart.

Shit I could write this pap all day long. The libs should just open their play book and type "Paragraph 1, Paragraph 24, Paragraph 93...."

Jeff Blogworthy:

SFC Miller,

I'll take your word for it. However, until I see evidence to the contrary, the police get the benefit of the doubt, not the criminal. Your assertion that the suspect did nothing to provoke the officer is pure speculation. The suspect was known to be exceedingly dangerous. If he was told to freeze several times and did not, that is provocation enough in my book. It only takes a fraction of a second for someone to draw a weapon and fire.

Your reflex seems to be to trash the police. That is hardly a conservative tendency in my experience. If you are asserting that an officer should wait until they are fired on to react - that is very foolish and a good way to wind up dead.

You better believe that I would obey the commands of a police officer, especially one who has drawn his weapon. That is the normal reaction of a law-abiding citizen. Thugs and criminals will behave otherwise and reap the consequences.

If anyone wants to assert that the suspect 'did not know what he was doing' then I am going to call B.S. He knew enough to flee and was cunning enough to elude the police, therefore he was able to understand simple commands.

GarandFan:

No, no, Jeff. In the "real" Hollywood world, all cops are expert marksmen. Can shoot a gun out of your hand at 100 yards, in the dark. And if disarmed, have years and years of hand-to-hand combat experience under their black belts.

Hey SFC, here's the real world. Known cop killer, next to a stolen car. FREEZE! You don't, you're dead.

Or as we on the street used to say, "Rather judged by 12 than carried by 6."

WildWillie:

SFC Miller, I do believe you when you say "I haven't read anything...", it just seems so true.

Secondly, I think the provacation happened with the murder of the officers proved this man cannot be given any latitude. If they say kneel and you move your dead. I cannot believe you are that dense. Please tell me you were kidding about being a conservative? ww

He's gonna have to be even tighter to have His own commuted after this.

Who cares? He's maggot bait...Let God sort it out.
