Ding Dong, Another Thug Gone
From the Minneapolis Star:
The head of the Minneapolis police union said Wednesday that Jamar Clark was disarming one of the officers and was not handcuffed at the time gunfire from an officer’s weapon fatally struck the 24-year-old man in the head.
Union President Lt. Bob Kroll repeated his earlier contentions that Clark was not wearing handcuffs, as some witnesses have alleged, during his confrontation early Sunday with officers on the street in north Minneapolis. Clark died the next day.
Also Wednesday, the two officers were identified by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension: They are Mark Ringgenberg, 30, who has been a police officer for seven years, including 13 months with Minneapolis, and Dustin Schwarze, 28, who also has been a police officer for seven years, including 13 months with Minneapolis.
The two met Tuesday night with BCA investigators, Kroll said. The officers have been on standard paid administrative leave since the shooting. http://www.startribune.com/officers-talk-to-bca-about-fatal-shooting-by-police-of-jamar-clark/351383981/
And of course, black thug supporters just think the cops executed this thug/moron.
Fact is, this thug assaulted a woman, left and came back to the scene and attacked a couple of paramedics and then attacked the cops.
Also Wednesday afternoon, activists camped outside the Police Department’s Fourth Precinct headquarters were hustled off the property by officers. Dozens of officers emerged from the station and ran toward the protesters camped out front, where they had been for the past few days.
Several people who had camped in the station’s foyer since Sunday were also removed. Officers chased a man who allegedly threw something at them and arrested him. A Black Lives Matter banner that had hung over the station’s entrance was torn down.
Police Chief Janeé Harteau was on the scene and said the decision to break up the protesters’ presence was made after her department received numerous complaints. Traffic in front on Plymouth Avenue has been having trouble getting by, and large amounts of garbage have piled up.
Well, I don't know, black rioting thugs piling up on the side of the street seems kind of distasteful.
