This story comes out of Post Falls, Idaho, about an officer-involved shooting of a perp after a high-speed pursuit. The officers involved were cleared of any wrong-doing, and the shooting was deemed justified. From ‘The Spokesman Review:’
Two Post Falls police officers and and Idaho State Police corporal were justified when they shot a fugitive to death in March during a chase that ended in a cul-de-sac in Hayden, authorities concluded this week.
Video from a police cruiser’s dashboard camera released Friday shows Justin Earl Nicholas Todd, 33, strike Idaho State Police Cpl. Michael Thomas Keys with a car before Keys and Post Falls police Officers Aaron Ogle and Bradley Johnson opened fire.
Todd, who died at the scene, was shot 10 times. Johnson fired 16 shots, Ogle fired one and Keys three.
Bonner County Prosecutor Louis Marshall concluded this week that no criminal charges will be filed because the officers’ use of force was lawful.
Warner Brothers has just released a 13 minute plus Featurette for “The Dark Knight Rises,” this has a little new footage but mainly features interviews with the cast and crew plus a viagra and canada lot of behind-the-scenes footage from the final part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy. Look for “Rises” to make its mark in Box Office history on its opening day on July 20th.
All I can say is WOW! I can’t WAIT for this to hit the theaters! I’ll be getting tickets online tonight, even though the movie doesn’t come out until July 20th. Tickets will sell out quick most certainly.
If you have ever visited Parrish Medical Center in Titusville, you may have seen anesthesiologist Dr. Zachary Bird.
Bird was arrested Sunday morning. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, he was driving on State Road 417 near Curry Ford Road when he almost hit a trooper.
Troopers said they found $54,000 in cash on him, along with pills and some kind of liquid. The report states that a trooper could smell alcohol on the doctor’s breath and that the tags on his BMW had expired.
A camera in the patrol car recorded Bird beating his head against the car and yelling at the troopers.
“You officers are stealing my money out of my car!”
His head bloodied, he asked to be taken to the hospital. As the camera continues to record the incident, one can hear a trooper say, “He spit on me. He got blood on me.”
Sometimes video cameras can be a very good thing. This fool doesn’t deserve to keep his medical license. What an idiot. Physician, heal thyself!
And what better way to remind us all of what others have sacrificed so much for than to share with you the story of one such hero, 1st Lt. Travis Manion USMC. Travis was killed by a sniper in Fallujah while trying to help his fellow Marines stop an enemy ambush. The Travis Manion Foundation was created in his honor, and was initially run by his mother Janet, who recently succumbed to her battle with Stage 4 lung cancer. Travis’ sister, Ryan, however picked up the mantle and continues to run the foundation. Chris Wallace interviewed her as this week’s Fox News Sunday “Power Player of the Week.”
I urge you to visit the Foundation website and read all the stories there, watch the videos, and contribute if you can. God bless our warriors who fight and are willing to die for us unconditionally.
