Berkeley, MO Police Release Surveillance VIDEO Moments Before Shooting … Shows Teen Pointing Gun at Police Officer
I WILL SAY IT AGAIN, IF YOU POINT A GUN AT A POLICE OFFICER, YOU CAN EXPECT THE WORSE. SUB-TITLED, SOME TIMES A THUG JUST ASKS TO BE KILLED.
As previously mentioned when first reporting on last nights white police officer shooting of a black male in Berkeley, MO, there would most certainly be some sort of surveillance video available as the shooting occurred at a gas station. Sure enough there was and the police have released the VIDEO that shows that 18 year old Antonio Martin pointed a gun at the police car. What else was a police officer to do, not shoot? Let’s get this straight America, to all those no matter what color you are, black, brown, white, pink, purple or beige, you point a gun at a police officer, there is a 99.9% chance you will be shot dead. Thus was the case last night in Berkeley, Missouri. The police officer shooting of an ignorant thug, who was stupid enough to point a gun at law enforcement is only a story because of race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson and race-agitators like President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. In days gone by, an individual pointing a gun at a cop and in turn being shot dead in response would have made the back pages of the police blotter. However, in today’s society where community agitators are now presidents and mayors, all police are racist and it must be racism why a white cop would shot and kill a black male.
“The Berkeley police officer exited his vehicle and approached the subjects when one of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer,” the county police department, which is leading the investigation, said in a statement. “Fearing for his life, the Berkeley officer fired several shots, striking the subject, fatally wounding him. The second subject fled the scene.”
Police released surveillance tape that showed the police car pulling into the gas station parking lot. The officer appeared to get out of the car, turn on his flashlight and speak for several seconds with two people.
The video was taken from a distance but the episode did not appear to turn confrontational until one of the men turned away, reached down and then turned back to face the officer, appearing to point his arm straight out. The police said the man was holding a 9 mm handgun. At that point, the video stops; the shooting itself is not shown.
Hmm, no gun eh? Just another “Gentle Giant” I guess. I guess some one would need to explain why the video shows the 18 year old point a gun and why a 9mm handgun was found at the crime scene with the serial number files off. I am guessing that he did not have a permit for it. What is Rev. Al and his ilk going to claim on this one, the white police officer shot and killed the armed teen before he had a chance to shoot? The 18 year old, with the criminal past, didn’t intend to shoot, he was just representing.
Evidence #5 – The 9 mm that the deceased mom claimed he did not have
Investigators recovered a 9mm handgun at the scene. The weapon was “defaced,” meaning the serial number was unreadable. Belmar suspects the serial number was intentionally removed.
The 18-year-old had a criminal record, including arrests for armed robbery, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon, and was known to local police departments, Belmar said.
Meanwhile, the officer involved in the shooting, a six-year veteran of the Berkeley police force, has been placed on administrative leave.
“He will carry the weight of this for the rest of his life, certainly for the rest of his career,” Belmar said of the officer. “So there are no winners here.”
I am going to go out on a limb and say that this will not even be presented to the grand jury, which will probably still cause riots and protests.
