America's New Terrorists

America's New Terrorist Threat

Nearly a thousand times this year, an American police officer has shot and killed a civilian. Whereas U.K. police have only shot and killed 51 people over the 95 years. In 2013, only six bullets were fired in total by police in Finland and in Iceland, and only one fatal police shooting has to be recorded in the 71 years of the country’s existence.

Woman Arrested for Pulling Gun on Black Man

A woman aimed a gun at a Black man for simply asking a question. According to Nashville 5, Sherry McLain was leaving a Wal-Mart in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, when the incident occurred.

McLain, 67, was approached by a Black man who asked her for a cigarette lighter. Without answering the man, McLain grabbed her gun and aimed at him. As the man ran away, McLain shouted, “I’m going to shoot you, I’m going to kill you,“ according to witnesses. Several kids who were with their parents were also near the scene.

The man was able to find safety inside the store and called 911. When police arrived, McLain told authorities that she feared for her life. However, police were able to check a surveillance tape and discovered that the man had just purchased a box of cigarettes and was at least 10 feet from McLain when he asked for a lighter.

McLain’s unwarranted fear of Black people could have led to the killing of an innocent person. But it’s the same misguided fear that has caused poorly trained police officers to shoot and kill unarmed Black men. Whenever prejudices can provoke fear, it becomes dangerous when the person who lacks proper reasoning has the power to take a life.

The police eventually arrested McLain and charged her with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Cop Arrest Firefighter While On Duty

What a foolish move for this California cop, especially towards a fellow civil servant! A California Highway Patrol officer put an on-duty Chula Vista firefighter in handcuffs for refusing to move his truck while tending to victims of a car crash.

As he was being handcuffed on the side of the 805 Freeway near Orange County, the firefighter, 12-year veteran Jacob Gregoire, told reporters who had gathered, “I just want to let you all know he’s arresting me.”

Later, according to CBS News 8, Gregoire told the arresting officer, whose name has not been released, “It’s unbelievable you guys have to treat us like this. We are trying to help you guys.”

The officer replied, “We asked you to clear the road, you said ‘No.’ You are being arrested for not moving.”

Gregoire was reportedly detained in the back of a highway patrol car for several minutes before being released. He was not charged.

Chula Vista Fire Chief Dave Hanneman told CBS, “To detain one of our firefighters in the middle of an incident is ridiculous.”

In a statement, Hanneman praised the firefighters for doing what they were trained to do — protecting the scene of an accident with their trucks.

Hanneman told the San Diego Union-Tribune, “The CHP is going to investigate. I think a lot of this had to do with communication.”

The Union-Tribune reports the car accident resulted in two injuries. One person was hospitalized.

The two sides have since made peace. In a joint statement, representatives from the police and fire departments announced this was an “isolated incident and not representative of the manner in which our agencies normally work together toward our common goal,” CBS Los Angeles reported.
