Another working man takes a bullet or two from a flaming hot pig looking for a bribe in a Planned Parenthood parking lot, of all places, once again demonstrating how the DVIC fraud of womens rights is just thin cover for a thuggish police state.
Appeals Court: No Immunity For Shooting A Man Who Had His Hands Up And Twice Said He Surrendered
These are not “rogue cops,”or lone “bad apples”~these are incidents that reveal the systemic nature of the moldy barrel of rotten pickled pork that American policing is.
Layers upon layers of DVIC industries working together to destroy working men,while “empowering”bankster funded womens NGOs, horsefaced lesbian slanderers, and organized gang stalking as America continues to caputulate to the ghost of Stalin, and Mayer Lanskys ghost, which has its tentacles extended deeply into the anuses of every cop, everywhere in America….
Another good read from the continuosly excellent Techdirt.com(whose comment section is also, unfortunately, a highly speech patrolled area, infected by cricket-headed tribalists, and other racists)
Craig Strand, a truck driver, needed to take a mandatory drug screening. Since he was unable to fit his truck in the testing facility’s parking lot, he obtained permission to park it at a nearby Planned Parenthood office. Officer Curtis Minchuk, who was providing security for Planned Parenthood while in uniform and with the blessing of his department, saw Strand’s truck and left two parking tickets on its windshield.
Strand returned to his truck and saw the tickets. He returned to the Planned Parenthood office to inquire about them and was directed to meet Officer Minchuk in the parking lot. Strand explained he had received permission to park there. This is where things went downhill for Strand, his rights, and his as-of-yet unwounded body.
From the decision [PDF]:
Minchuk had no interest in discussing the tickets beyond, as the district court observed, allegedly soliciting a bribe from Strand.
Let’s pause there for effect. Officer Minchuk didn’t want to be right. He wanted to be paid. Any explanation Strand offered would have been ignored. Strand realized this and made preparations to leave, but not before gathering a little exculpatory evidence.
After Strand declined to pay, Minchuk drove to the back of the Planned Parenthood facility. Strand started his rig, but before driving away used his cell phone to take pictures of the parking lot, thinking he might need them to show the absence of no‐parking signs to contest the tickets.
In response to this non-threatening (at least to Minchuk’s life, but perhaps not his livelihood), the officer decided to thug out.
Observing from a distance, Officer Minchuk returned to the truck and ordered Strand to leave immediately. Strand said he would leave as soon as he finished taking pictures. Minchuk responded by saying he was calling a tow truck and telling Strand he had two minutes to leave.
The situation then escalated. Stepping toward Strand, Officer Minchuk admonished, “I told you to get the f*** outta here,” and slapped Strand’s cell phone to the ground. Minchuk then demanded Strand’s identification; Strand refused and countered by demanding Minchuk’s badge number. Minchuk replied, “I said, give me your I.D.” and grabbed Strand by his shirt and neck, resulting in Strand’s shirt tearing off his body. Minchuk attempted to push and tackle Strand to the ground, with Strand resisting by holding on to Minchuk’s arm.
According to Officer Minchuk, Strand got the upper hand. The officer was punched three times before being grabbed by the throat. Minchuk claimed he feared for his life and that, if he passed out, Strand would take his gun and shoot him.
But that’s not what happened. Strand decided to disengage and de-escalate.
The fist fight ceased when Strand stood up, backed four to six feet away from Officer Minchuk, put his hands up, and said, “I surrender. Do whatever you think you need to do. I surrender, I’m done.”
Of all the possible ways Officer Minchuk could have reacted to Strand’s capitulation, he chose the worst:
While still on the ground, Minchuk responded by removing his gun from its holster and firing a shot at Strand, striking him in the abdomen.
