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?
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.
