UPDATE: Check out Greencrow’s article “Was Minnesota Police Shooting Staged to distract from THIS?!“
There has been another shooting involving police and a suspect who was carrying a firearm but not brandishing it. This one took place last night in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. The day before, Alton Sterling was shot by officers in Baton Rouge, La. under similar circumstances.
Now keep this in mind: both of these guys were carrying weapons, I believe legally in both cases but I’m not sure. I have to wonder if someone in congress wont be using these latest incidents to say “see? we gotta keep guns off the streets because it makes it harder for cops to do their jobs and citizens are being killed needlessly”
I’ve watched this video several times and I have too say, it seems like it might have been staged. Might. You take a look and let me know what you think.
Well no wait… it is staged.
Watch the first few minutes of this video, when she is in the car with the dying victim and her kid is in the back seat.
What stands out to you? Her calm demeanor? The kid not crying? No smoke in the vehicle from 4 shots being fired at point blank range in the driver’s side window? The fact that the blood pattern on his shirt doesn’t change while he’s clearly still breathing and his heart is still pumping? No visible wounds on the guy? No powder burns on his clean white shirt? The fact that her ears aren’t ringing and she never checks on the welfare of her young child sitting 4 feet away from where the cop fired the gun?
Those are all interesting clues but they aren’t the dead giveaway.
I took me a couple times to see it, but when you do, you can’t unsee it.
Her “boyfriend” is supposedly dying from gunshot wounds right beside her… and what does she do? She goes to Facebook, focusing her stupid cell phone camera on her with drifting shots of hubby once or twice and “reaching for the stars” actor cop (“FUCK!”) but mostly, has her phone trained entirely on herself.
Her boyfriend is dying beside her, bleeding out in the car, and she never addresses him. Never tells him to hang in there. Never tries to help him. Never says she loves him or goodbye. Can you imagine? Imagine your significant other in that situation while you lay dying 12 inches from them… and they never even acknowledge your presence. Instead, he/she talks to his/her phone while you face the Grim Reaper on your own?
Really? Do you think anyone is that callus? She’s not even trying to help the guy as he slips away. Really?
Not only that, but she never says his full name. Not once in the entire video. Towards the end she says something about “Phil’s sister” but that’s it. And the police didn’t release his name at first either. What a coincidence that is, huh.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the man was Philando Castile but you wouldn’t know that watching the video.
What’s also odd is they never tell her to drop the phone while they are carrying out their felony arrest on her and end up giving her back her phone while she sits in the back of the police car so she can continue the show. That’s highly irregular. I can tell you that from experience. She’s still handcuffed in the back of the patrol car and they are still supposedly conducting an investigation looking for whatever they can find in her car. There’s no way in hell cops would give her back her phone at that point. Perhaps after they determine she hasn’t done anything wrong they would but she’s still in handcuffs in the back of the car so they hadn’t come to that point yet.
Another thing to consider is the fact that she has a private Facebook account. That’s important because if it was staged, which I think it was, they wouldn’t want it going viral while live and end up with 10,000 angry Facebook users flooding the scene down there.
Her Facebook page is now public by the way.
In my opinion, either this was 100% staged or this woman just don’t give a shit about anyone in the world but herself. I mean, she wasn’t even comforting the kid.
They have staged police shooting in the past. Poorly, I might add. And in those cases, they also just happened to have someone there with a camera that the police didn’t seem to care about. In this case they seemed to go out of their way to make sure she could keep broadcasting.
What the purpose is, is still a mystery to me. It could be they wanted media cover for James Comey’s testimony in congress today. A story big enough to take all the headlines and airtime from Hillary’s skating on yet another high crime and misdemeanor.
It could be, like I suggested before, that they want to use these incidents to justify changing law which allow citizens to carry weapons on them in public.
Or it could be more of their strategy of tension operation. I don’t know. And I don’t know for sure that this event was staged, but it damn sure looks like it was to me. The cop seemed to have more of an emotional investment in the dying man than she did.
