Ferguson Cop Points Gun At Protesters And Press, Screams "I Will F***ing Kill You", Has Been "Relocated"

Tyler Durden's picture

In the aftermath of recent violent events and now that even the US Attorney General has arrived, one would assume that the Ferguson police had at least some "sensitivity" training about how to approach protesters, especially those "armed" with cameras. Not in this case. The footage below out of Ferguson shows a police officer pointing his gun directly at protesters and reporters while screaming "I’m going to f***ing kill you!"

The clip shows a Ferguson officer with his gun raised pointing it directly at a citizen journalist who was live streaming at the time: the incident was witnessed by Infowars reporter Joe Biggs who was also filming the incident.

"My hands are up bro, my hands are up," states the journalist before the cop responds, "I’m going to f***ing kill you, get back, get back!"

"You’re going to kill him?” asks another individual before the journalist asks, “did he just threaten to kill me?"

When the cop is asked for his name he responds, "go fuck yourself."

It didn't end there.

As Infowars reports, "another clip shows the officer pointing his gun as protesters demand he lower the weapon. A second cop intervenes to make the officer lower his weapon as more irate demonstrators demand to know the officer’s name."

The officer’s response to people asking for his name almost immediately prompted the launch of the Twitter hashtag #officergofuckyourself.

Biggs live tweeted the incident, and also took this photograph of the cop.

The incident is certain to provoke curiosity as to just how the local Police department is handling the de-escalation of local tensions.

As for police officer #officergofuckyourself, it appears he is no longer "on location."

One also wonders: if not in Ferguson, just where can this pleasant, if "relocated", individual be encountered?

poorly trained? or trained israelis?  really the same thing, although it all depends on your perspective.

WTF. You are retarded. And no prespective has nothing to do with it, you are simply retarded.

john39's picture

you were saying?

"In 2011, then St. Louis County Police Department chief Timothy Fitch attended the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) National Counter-Terrorism Seminar, an annual week-long Israeli training camp where US law enforcement executives “study first hand Israel’s tactics and strategies” directly from “senior commanders in the Israel National Police, experts from Israel’s intelligence and security services, and the Israel Defense Forces,” according to the ADL’s website."

Agree, so long as we're replacing them with people who know and respect the Constitution rather than a new generation of brown shirts ready to do the Fed's bidding.

cougar_w's picture

That also is training.

There are no perfect people. It is all training in what is the correct thing to protect and defend.

Oldwood's picture

How much training do you need to effectively serve and protect people who you believe want you dead?

This is not nearly as much a training problem as it is of a state that breeds hate and then facilitates both sides of the conflict...just like we do in every other part of the world...get it?

We can beat up the cops and the blacks, but we must look at the root causes, and it ain't poor training. Its deliberate divisiveness to create chaos. The route to all concentrated unaccountable power.

cougar_w's picture

"people who you believe want you dead?"

Making shit up to scare yourself. That's the definition of psychotic.

Police work is exactly what Ofc. Wilson did, 

 

cougar_w's picture

Shows how much you know about police work.

I happen to know tons about it. And unless the report that he emptied is gun into an unarmed person -- and two shots to the head just for good measure -- prove incorrent then he was not doing proper police work and I can stop right there.

According to AP article, while in Ferguson today Holder promises "change is coming." Which likely means a much more vibrant police force is coming to Ferguson.

JLee2027's picture

No no not stupid. Poorly trained.

I've never been a cop, or done crowd control but I sure as heck know not to point guns at people and make demands. It's more than training. That guy needs to be off the force. 

cougar_w's picture

Yes he might be a sociopath as well as poorly trained.

I was responding to the allegation that he was stupid. Police training is supposed to take the place of intelligence (Army, same thing) because in a fast moving situation you don't have time to think. Even smart people can make bad snap-decisions, proper training helps them avoid that.

Nobody on ZH understands what police work is. You need to wrap your brain around this one, because bad cops are coming to a city near you, and you need to know how to respond to them as bad cops with bad training rather than this mish-mash of blame the victim, blame the situation, blame the press, blame the libtards, or whatever else is your personal peeve because these guys have guns and their training in situation management and crowd control looks for shit to me.

They are trained exactly how the overseers want them to be trained. This is no accident. The militarization of the police isn't just an accident, nor the training of the military to shoot civilians during a time of (banksters caused) economic collapse.

Did you forget what country we're in? That doesn't happen here. Kelly Thomas was beaten to death by seven cops while begging for his life for literally no reason. Then the cops turned on the folks filming it, seized phones, chased people into their houses and kicked down doors to seize every known piece of footage. Not even a single written fuckin warning or even a stern talking to.

It's hard to imagine that it is not like that on purpose.

fireed and prosecuted.

in what state is pointing a gun at someone and threatening to shoot without legal justification not a crime?

Duffy's picture

removed?

what's that paid admin leave and a pension?

 

fuck this guy - he needs an old fashioned ass kicking.... 

 

Multiply him by a million - that's our Israelified, roided out, tough guy with a badge and gun police-army.

 

Hey, tough job, 90% are good dudes, and fair, I'm sure - but a lot are overpaid, over-benefitted, and seem to think the Constitution is just a piece of paper.

walküre's picture

surely you jest .. 90% "good" cops ... LOL

cougar_w's picture

I would guess maybe 10%. Maybe not even that. "good cops" leave a situation like that and only bad cops will stay. A force can get to 100% fucking retarded roid destroyers in a few years or a decade, with no way out ever.

I grew up in the ghetto myself and I had numerous confrontations with the police. While I did a lot of things that could have put me in jail and radically altered the course of my life, by the grace of God I never got busted for any of those acts. Every time the police hassled me it was when I hadn’t actually done anything wrong—call it poetic justice for me, I guess. From my experiences with the police I can report the following: I met one officer whom I believe was truly good, several who were truly bad or borderline psychopathic, and at least 50% of the entire force falls into neither camp and is just going through the motions for a paycheck.

 Early on in my attempts to figure out how the world really worked, I formed an impression which has been borne out by experience and corroborated by the testimony of others, viz. that most police officers are drawn from the ranks of the kids who seemed “edgy” back in high school. I’m not talking about the kids who were the hardcore gangbangers and actual criminals, but rather that odd assortment of stoners, skaters, and punks who wore leather jackets and listened to metal, who had just enough of an attitude to get kicked out of class on occasion but who seldom caused any serious trouble. It was perhaps these early experiences around the borderlines of acceptable behavior which caused them to play around with the concept of institutional authority, to recognize the often arbitrary distinction between those who could and could not exercise a fiat, and finally to desire to wield that authority themselves.

 Although the characteristics of their outward appearance have often been taken as typical of “troubled youth” and have been employed as melodramatic indicators of such in movies and television, this is actually a pretty sanguine lot. The distinguishing feature of their emotional comportment is a high and unshakeable self-esteem. They are not troubled by anxiety nor do they deeply question the social structure around them. These people simply take the most direct route to personal comfort that they can find; and as they become more efficient at this over time, they naturally gravitate to positions of institutional authority, mainly as a means of “avoiding difficulty.” Police officers, security guards, and also health workers, are often personalities of this type.

 If you’re going to be doing police work, you can see how advantageous it is to not be the kind of person who is given over to much empathy, who engages himself in existential susurrations about who the real criminal is or what the person you’re currently arresting might have become if he had been given a better start in life. This is where “not questioning the social structure” comes in handy. It is a valuable trait to have in certain fields, but it is often indistinguishable from coldhearted stupidity.

 As a side note, the psychological studies I’ve read make the case that those who listen to metal and hard rock tend to be just the type of people I’ve described above—emotionally well-adjusted and relatively free from inner conflict—while those who listen to softer music and progressive rock tend to have more complex and volatile personalities, and are continuously testing both themselves and the social norms even when they appear not to be. As someone whose playlist is bound to include The Eagles, Jackson Browne, Phil Collins, Pink Floyd, and Supertramp, I definitely fall into the latter category and I can vouch for the truth of that part of the study.

you 'grew up in the ghetto' but now you 'listen to jackson browne'?... really? i'm just sayin'... lol... all quibbles aside, yours was a thought-provoking post.

Tinky's picture

I remember that dude...always walkin' around with a crazy look, muttering "I'll put a cap in yo ass if you ain't down with Jackson Brown."

GooseShtepping Moron's picture

It isn't really that much of a stretch, gentlemen. My parents were ex-army vet hippies who didn't have much money. So yes, we lived in the ghetto and I was exposed to a wide array of '60s and '70s rock from my earliest boyhood on up. When I started to get myself sorted out and to recognize the distinction between my own real preferences and my upbringing, I stuck with the music from the past that I actually liked.

Don't get the wrong idea; I listen to plenty of Wu-Tang and Cypress Hill as I was growing up, too. I dropped all of that stuff as part of my effort to turn my life around, and I am especially happy now that I did it considering that those groups are, to put it mildly, "culturally biased against people like me."

I don't think white suburban wannabes realize that just because they're down with the minorities, that doesn't mean the minorities are down with them. Word?

Duffy's picture

I dunno - a majority.  For the most part, I've had good interactions with cops.  But then, I do th little things like say yes sir, no sir, take off my sunglasses if wearing them.  I also wouldnt be in the street filming them as they're orderng people off.

 

But surely - threatening to shoot a guy with an iPhone and a punk attitude is over the line.  I'm not willing to concede this country is so fucked it's not over the line.

 

On the other hand - NYPD and LAPD and forces of any size think of themselves as an above the law domestic army and they run as many criminal schemes as the Italian mob.

walküre's picture

As long as you don't ever argue anything with a cop, you're pretty safe. Being white helps as well.

Once when I was given a $170 ticket for failure to wear a seat belt, I just said that it was a steep fine for a guy working an honest day's job ... and the cop nearly went bezerk at the suggestion he wasn't honest.

Most cops are assholes and for the most part, we don't need them to harrass people going about their business and driving to work.

Traffic cops are the TSA equivalent on the roads.

jay35's picture

As much as I appreciate your train of thought, what you fail to realize is that most cops are pro Constitution, including the second-amendment, so one day he'll be the only thing standing between you and the federal government that comes to take you away for not going along with some one-world big brother nonsense.

This cop being hounded by a bunch of sociopathic paparazzi trying to cause incidents like this is not a real example of anything other than how obnoxious the faux-press can be and how much they've convinced us that we should be anti-police, and in turn, pro-big government. Even your beloved Hollywood actors get tired of their BS.

Same reality, different perspectives. Keeps life interesting.

Sir, reality is my stock-in-trade. I sense reality the way an eagle senses thermals, and wolf senses fear.

That cop showed incredible self control!  I mean come on,  if this had been 1987 and he was Sean Penn, those reporters would have gotten the piss beat out of them.

Most cops are pro- 2nd amendment?

I guess that is always why they ask you for a permit if you are exercising that "right," right?

lulz

pods

jay35's picture

You're confusing 'them doing their job' with 'what they believe'.

I won't claim ALL cops are pro-2nd amendment, but a strong majority are (though that is certainly changing as younger, brainwashed-by-mass-media generations begin to fill the ranks).

I just care enough to remind us that there's a purposeful attempt being made by the media and the PTB to cause division and distrust between us and the police. Just keep that in mind, and don't be so quick to go along with it.

MsCreant's picture

I have said this too, I support freedom of the press, but it is clear the press are goading some of this on. Cops/protesters/press/world feedback, there is a negative synergy fueling this. Meanwhile, if the cops did not have this history of acting this way, anyway, none of this is possible. 

This individual cop (Wilson) may in fact be innocent. The handling of this makes them look like the insane clown possee (apologies to the actual band by that name).

XitSam's picture

I distrust the police because of the police.  The media and PTB had nothing to do with it.

Please show me a study that says a "strong majority" of police are pro 2A.

Duffy's picture

As much as I appreciate yours...  guys like this are all over, say, the NYPD. Fact.

They will gladly break your skull if it means collecting that pension.

I don't think anyone should be anti-police - anarchists are fucking idiots.

 

But we should all be anti-this guy.

Fuck this guy.

 

p.s. not that it matters or that you likely care, I didn't "junk" you - I hear you.

jay35's picture

Agree completely. And certainly some departments are worse than others. NYPD is notorious.

FuzzyDunlop21's picture

I have to agree. These people are not journalists. They are liberal yuppie hipsters trying to get instagram followers. There hasnt been a 'journalist' in America in at least 20 years.

Not saying the cop isnt an asshole. Im just saying the journalists are usually assholes too. They're not reporting for you. . .

SemperFudge's picture

Give me a break. A cop is supposed to be professional. Anyone who can't act like a professional and let insults roll off their back doesn't deserve to be a cop in the first place.

I don't know about this duchebag but First Responders don't have any laws that they have to abide by and no papers or reports to file. They are officially sanctioned shadow government personnel. When I worked with them in 2005 they seemed like they were training to diffuse potentially socially disruptive situations that could grow out of control as well as natural disasters. The person in charge of the group I knew was a little old Jewish lady on the Forbes Who's Who list of top 100 most influential people in the world.

I asked her, "how do these people get to be part of this group?" She pulled a nickel out of her purse, handed it to me and said, "I hand pick each and everyone of them." I thought that was like really weird that some lady could chose a team of Marines, Communications specialists (Pac Bell). FBI, DHS, CIA and so on to be a shadow government force beyond the reproach of law.

Anyhow I'm sure many people out there know directly of these groups. Anyhow if SHTF if as I suspect they will, people or military that want to see law and order and morality restored, go directly after the most prominent bankers that are funding these types of dangerous and illegal operations and some how bring them to justice the whole globalist centrally controlled idea global dominance will quickly disappear.

One problem is that tech has become so powerful at this point that if the masses lose their individual right and wrong none of us will survive. We need a distributed form of government shared by all individuals to match the powers that technology has already made available. From what I've seen so far the globalists are going about this in the most absolute wrong way.
