Autopsy Confirms Texas Cop Literally Killed Student for Being Sarcastic

A Texas college student died from a gunshot wound to his back after making a sarcastic remark to the campus police officer who killed him.

23-year-old Cameron Redus was shot five times at close range by Cpl. Christopher Carter, a University of Incarnate Word police officer, during a traffic stop in the early hours of December 6th 2013, near the San Antonio campus.

KENS-TV report that the autopsy performed the following day showed Redus, a student at the private Catholic university, was shot in the back, left eye, upper chest, left elbow, and right hip.

According to the medical examiner, the bullet that was “the most immediately lethal” entered the student’s back, severed his spinal cord, hit a major blood vessel in his chest, and became lodged in the sac surrounding his heart. The autopsy also found that the gunshot wound to his eye could also have been fatal.

The autopsy noted a number of wounds around the student’s neck, but found such contusions could have occurred when Redus was thrown to the ground or by a nearby gunshot wound.

A toxicology report found that Redus’ blood-alcohol content was 0.155, nearly twice the legal limit for driving in Texas, and a separate test conducted using vitreous fluid from the student’s eye showed a higher 0.186 level.

Redus also tested positive for trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol, the active component in marijuana.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that the Police say Carter spotted Redus driving erratically at around 2 in the morning, and followed the student’s pickup outside his jurisdiction, but the officer was authorized to arrest suspected drunken drivers anywhere in the state.


No Moral Ground...

Yeah... But what if Fox News told you to go straight to hell, would you go?

I'm guessing that the answer would be a resounding "YES!"


That answer COULD be sarcasm, but you can never really tell for sure in this day and age.

If you could live like a French Impressionist, would you give up your current life to make art?

When you're young, all of life is an adventure...

Bye, Y'all!

Man dies defending daughter during alleged hate crime

A Chicago man was killed Wednesday while protecting his only daughter during an alleged hate crime.

Fifty-nine-year-old Michael Tingling was walking his 15-year-old daughter, Masharah, home from school around 2 p.m. when he noticed Joseph Firek, 59, making inappropriate gestures towards her, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Firek approached the girl, Tingling stepped in and a fight ensued.

“He was staring at me up and down, eyeballing me,” Masharah said to NBC Chicago. “My dad, being a father, he got protective and put me behind him and told the guy to go away.”

During the altercation, Firek allegedly punched Tingling, who has a pacemaker, in the chest, causing him to go into cardiac arrest, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Firek allegedly used racial slurs while hitting Masharah’s father.
