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?

Yeah just like paparazzi, except for the tanks

Yeah, one bad photo can ruin your entire day.

I'm really sorry you wouldn't be able to read your beloved gossip rag drivel without them, but anyone who's had to put up with their privacy-invasive, antagonistic horsecrap knows better.

So that justifies this cops behavior does it?

cougar_w's picture

Apparently. Good to know that's how it is now.

Who the hell is running this police response? 

Frankly, I think having the night shift police officers dress up as flesh eating zombies and have them stumbling around asking for "more brains" would be more efficacious.

Ya, no, I'm not sure what "efficacious" would mean in this context but I want flesh eating zombie cops and I want them in Furgie right away.

There's a reason there's no zombies in Fergie, nobody there has any brains.

OK, so why wasn't this guy FIRED this morning.

You can't fire him cause that would set a bad precedent.

Everyone must get a service star for this.

What I find most amusing is the assumption by the reporters that the police will be lawful, and rational. These kids in their 20's have been living through a mobile phone screen and reality is far different. 

"Did he just threaten to kill me?"

Yes he did son, one sneeze and you would be dead. Welcome to the real world, not the make believe one.

cougar_w's picture

Why is this real world something we have to accept? Because you like it this way? What do you like about it exactly?

css1971's picture

You don't.

However there is a word for those who are unwilling or unable to accept reality. "Deluded".

cougar_w's picture

I am unwilling to accept that a psychotic cop can with one event create an entirely new alternative reality.

So now cops are killing people at-will? That's the real world and I'm crazy for fighting reality?

What is wrong with you people?

No. I do not accept this. It happened but it is not the real world. It is not the way we do things. These people are not cut from the cloth of the human species. It is just a sick little man in a sick little town in the middle of a country that at one time held sick people responsible for their illness. It is delusion to think sickness can now define how we all live. It is psychotic and defeatist. We have never before allowed psychosis to define our values, we never allowed the inmates to run the entire country. We have collective values, we stand for those, and we do not allow one or a few individuals to inform us of what we have become overnight because they want to avoid responsibility for their own damaged mental health.

I'm not sure I can deal anymore with the level of detachment I keep running into here.

I like you Cougar, you are a smart mother fucker and always take the time to explain yourself rationally. +1

OK---- then can you accept that they are all heros?? 

cougar_w's picture

What?!? Christ on a pencil -- is paying attention too hard for you?

Waste of time. Half the people who post here are clinically stupid.

MsCreant's picture

Wrong word in this case. "Dead." 

You can be righter than right and your case can stand up in court, but that gun pointing asshole has already shown he has poor gun discipline. Here are some rules it is clear he has broken:

#Every gun is always loaded, thus...

#Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. (okay I checked, his finger is straight, not hooked in the trigger)

#Never aim your gun at something you do not intend to destroy.

#Make sure there is nothing beyond what you are aiming your gun at that you would not want to hit. You want to make sure the field is clear.

Cougar is right about their poor psychologcal training, but I question their gun training and that makes them very dangerous. Taunting a dumbass with a gun could get you killed, even if you know he is in the wrong.

Do you think that "badge" would have shot Jonny Carson in the face for asking a question?
What would the news print? Jonny Carson of the late show shot while asking for the name of an office worker.

I'm not sure his reaction is so surprising. "Did he just threaten to kill me?" Shit, I would be a little bewildered by that too, heavy smartphone usage or not. 

LFMayor's picture

ROFL!

You know the trouble with Timothy Treadwell?  He just HAD to keep POKING the bears!

thank you, thank you all.  Try the veal!

The moral of the story is that sometimes Life aint fair.  But it's always real.  You steps to the table and your rolls them fucking dice and when you get snake eyes you lose.  Those dumbasses about got shot for what?  Rioting blacks near a generic 7-11 in Red-Dick, Flyover country.

but hey, if that's the hill you're standing on, go get em tiger!

He has been removed, yeah BULLSHIT. This is what municipal unions are for. He'll be collecting checks from you whether you want it or not.

cougar_w's picture

I'll pay to have the guy off the streets and not wearing a badge.

We're going to be paying a lot for all kinds of crap we let slide, of late.

Surging Chaos's picture

I know not all cops are like this, but I can't help but think there is one bad apple that only cares about stirring up trouble and is just itching to live his Call of Duty fantasy in shooting a protestor or journalist. I really, really hope that it never gets to that, but when you get access to all the shiny military gear... everyone starts to look like a target.

That little piggie would be perfect for the next 'No Hesitation' poster target: http://reason.com/blog/2013/02/19/is-your-local-police-department-using-pi

he's already got into a shooting position...you wonder he was in a warzone or just watched too much expendables 3...

 

atrocious.

cougar_w's picture

Psychotic. They'll call it PTSD and give him a full pension for it. With any luck he'll drink himself to death.

kchrisc's picture

"With any luck he'll drink himself to death."

I'm buying!

Maybe he'll go "Leaving Las Vegas" for the benefit of his family and the American people.

An American, not US subject.

By the way, just so you don't forget.
While this happy horseshit is going on, these folks are trying their damnedest to disarm you:

vulcanraven's picture

The people he is threatening to kill also happen to pay his salary. How's that for irony?

Tall Tom's picture

Bullshit. The people do not pay anything but the interest on the National Debt.

 

Thr Federal Reserve pays the salaries of these jackbooted thugs.

 

Most cops will laugh at you when you say they pay their salary. They know better and keep quiet as they are complicit in the raping of the US Treasury.

 

They are nothing more than the thieves that they laim that they are protecting you from.

 

This will piss off the cops on this comment thread. But they know that it is the truth. (They cannot have it both ways...)

cougar_w's picture

Yup! To serve and protect ... the bankers.

The police are taking their cue from the catholic church, just relocate him.

LongMarch's picture

So is this it? Looks like that ball really wants to get rolling. From here it's not too hard to see the end game. Protests spread, civil unrest comes to the boil-welcome to the American Spring. Pretty soon some of the really smart investors in USD start to edge to that door with a bit fat EXIT sign, some of the smart-but-not that-smart notice the movement.Then it's on. Make sure you're the first guy to panic.

I don't know what you're going to buy your girl for Christmas 2015, but you won't be using USD.

 

Oh America, where did you go?

Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent upon every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

  Sir Robert Peel.

 

The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon the public approval of police actions.

Piece of FUCKEN trash cop, I enjoy all the press these assholes are receiving it about time people see these losers for who and what they are.

Toolshed's picture

The interesting thing I see here is that nobody seemed to feel threatened by this jackass's gun pointing. The law of diminishing returns on display.

Alea Iactaest's picture

Until they start actually, you know, pulling the trigger.

My guess is people might start to react differently when that happens.

sheikurbootie's picture

Cops elbow hanging out and threatening to kill non-combatants is sure sign of training deficiency desk jockey.  Journalist was looking for a fight/story and provoking the cop.  Not a good idea when the shitbirds are throwing jars of piss and Molotovs at you.  Kent State will look like a walk in the park.

Good cops are about as rare as rocking horse shit these days.  They've all left.  All that exists now are the bad, and the really terrible.

Is it just me, or does this feel like a powder keg with a slow burning fuse that refuses to go out?
