Remember: only “peace officers” should be allowed to carry weapons

…and provide for our protection.  The left in the sixties told us to question authority.  What they meant, though, was to question any authority they themselves don’t control.   Who knew?

Gateway Pundit:

Tommy Yancy, 32, father of two, was savagely beaten to death by five law enforcement officers during a routine traffic stop near the city of Imperial last Sunday, on Mother’s Day. Yancy, a veteran who suffered from PTSD, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the 259th Field Service Unit following the 9/11 attacks.

Yancy was stopped on his way to the store after a highway patrol officer spotted a missing front license plate on his vehicle. He was subsequently pulled from his car and attacked by a police K-9 unit, hit by a taser, and attacked by five officers until he succumbed to the beating and died. A witnessed, who filmed the incident, can be heard screaming on the recording: “How long before you guys call an ambulance? Call an ambulance!” According to the source of the video, who asked not to be named, his family has not been permitted to see his body, nor have they been given a cause of death.

Well, in the cops’ defense, he was a large black man. Could have been Obama’s brother, in fact. So I’m not sure why we aren’t receiving a two-month lecture on racism and a move to rein in the (as of now) still lawful concealed carry of a sidearm. Though if I had to guess, it’s because this type of thing, while it may fit the racial narrative the current left likes to use, doesn’t fit the rest — let’s call it the Joshua Micha Ulysses S Marshall narrative — where having a cell phone in order to call the police is all the protection you need.

Unless, of course, it’s the police you need protection from.

In which case, whoopsie!

Too bad he wasn’t wearing a hoodie and carrying a bag of Skittles. For the closure.

  1. I really hope at least some of those guys do hard time for this.

  2. More, other (less violent, presumably) lawless does as lawless is.

  3. Dumb cops, they should have just shot him.

  4. where’s my Charlie Dorner postage stamp I wanna send a get well card to Mr. Yancy

  5. *oops*

    my bad i meant Christopher not Charlie

  6. It’s okay, hf — nobody was paying attention to you anyway.

  7. So… why didn’t the witness call the ambulance? They obviously had a phone.

    Really a side question, but still. Criminals don’t usually call for medical attention for their victims.

  8. pickles

    cause finally the tables are starting to turn

    talkin bout a revolution, that’s what I’m talking about

    – See more at:

    They, as well as you or I, had every expectation that the coppers knew what they were doing. They were wrong.

  10. Or perhaps they did.

  11. Yeah, just wait for the government to save you, you know, like Chris Stevens did.

    In other news, heh.

  12. Give the Imperial CA DA a call.

  13. In other, less fatal news:

    Suspect who lost testicle accuses Albuquerque policeman of brutality

    Hey, he only needed the one, right?

    If you read the whole thing, you’ll find this:

    Later in the full 13-minute video, [Officer] Padilla is seen deleting videos on a cellphone of one of Martin’s passengers, Davis said.

    Sounds on the up and up.

  14. Give the Imperial CA DA a call.

    Call the Mayor while you’re at it. Explain to him that there is an armed gang roving the streets of his city, intimidating residents, arming itself with ever-more-lethal weapons and tactical training, and now murdering people in broad daylight, in front of witnesses who hesitate to speak out for fear of retribution against themselves, their families, and their businesses.

    Maybe ask if he’s planning to do something about it.

  15. – More proof, if any more was needed, why Progressives should not be allowed to handle sharp objects, be left alone in the arts classroom with the paste bottles, or be put in charge of anything ….ever .

    – They are too fucking stupid to be shamed by their moronic ideas, so my guess is they got a phone call from some high roller alum donor who said if they didn’t knock their crazy anal shit off in a hurry him and a few of his deep pocket buddies would be finding more “useful” places to send their dough.

  16. BBH, I’d like to say, “Only in Rhode Island.” But I think there is no state safe from the lunacy.
