"This Officer Who Shot My Son -HE NEEDS TO DIE
“We don’t have time for this!” exclaimed a police officer as he shot and killed a psychologically troubled, 90-pound teenage boy who had already been tasered and was pinned down beneath two other officers. The victim, 18-year-old Keith Vidal, was “armed” with a screwdriver at the time of his death.
Vidal’s father, Mark Wilsey, had called the police for help when the boy suffered what was described as a psychotic episode on the afternoon of January 5. When the police arrived at the family’s home in Boiling Spring Lakes, North Carolina, they rendered the kind of “help” for which they have become so notorious – repeatedly tasering the troubled young man until one of them simply shot him as a time-saving measure.
“There was no reason to shoot this kid,” Wilsey told the local NBC affiliate. “We called for help and they killed my son.” During a press conference today (January 6), Wilsey recalled that he was helping the police try to calm down his son when one of the officers fired the fatal gunshot. In addition to killing Vidal, the officer imperiled the lives of several other people – including two of his comrades at risk. He later pointed his gun at Wilsey when the father reacted with predictable pain and outrage over the murder of his son.
There was “no reason” for deadly force, Wilsey points out. “They had Tasers on them, and they didn’t have to even tase him, they could have just talked to him, talked to him another ten minutes.”
You are spot on, they should be the ones behind bars.
When I hear about something like this, I point out that there is NO such thing as a good cop in America or the good cops would have arrested this bad cop who murdered Keith. Every one of these cops should be arrested and charged with murder. However, they never will. Instead, this murderer gets a paid vacation.
Police Chief Kerik, police chief of Manhattan on 9-11-2001 and now in prison for fraud, started a negative trend with law enforcement by coming up with travel passports which he claimed had survived jets impacting the World Trade Centers I and II on 9-11-2001. Coincidently, they were presented as the hijackers passports, which unlike every other trace of a passport was not burned up in the crash. Kerik would be found guilty of 3,000 counts of conspiracy to commit murder, before and after the fact in any responsible court. Port Authority jurisdictions should be under the same rules as the rest in the U.S... Leather boy dreamers in the nations police departments see Kerik walking free after this and take it to heart. More negative impact should be expected until the 9-11 perpetrators are brought to justice.
George Bush's choice of him for head of Homeland Security shows that he is a criminal and an enemy combatant against America.
Police are a danger to the public. This article proves cops are not your friend and contact with them could end your life, so shoot first, because they probably will. We have an 8 times better chance of getting killed by police than in a terrorist attack. When a traffic stop can end up with you dead, somethings wrong.
