Salinas Police fatally shoot strawberry farmer (graphic video included)

California police caught on camera fatally shooting man (VIDEO)

May 21, 2014
Residents of a small central California city are asking for a response from officials after the local police department has been attributed with fatally shooting two suspects in a span of just 11 days this month.

The Tuesday afternoon shooting death of man alleged to have attempted to burglarize a Salinas, CA home and then expose himself to the person inside marks the second time this month — and third time this year — that officers there have come under fire for what some are calling excessive force.

A local newspaper, the Monterey Herald, reported on Wednesday that Salinas residents were responding angrily to the previous day’s incident in light of video footage published online showing local law enforcement officials firing the fatal shots at the man from point-blank range. The victim was not immediately identified by police.

According to the Herald, cops were alerted of an attempted break-in on Tuesday afternoon after a female caller told 911 that a man was not just trying to enter her home, but was trying to kill her dog and had exposed himself.

When police arrived and found the man on an adjacent street carrying a pair of gardening shears, the incident quickly escalated. The Herald quoted Salinas police Cmdr. Vince Maiorana as saying that the man was initially unresponsive when police tried to approach him about the alleged attempted break-in, then began to act strangely.

The only thing that I can speculate about Elliot Rodger...

Is what if he have not decided to engage in his violent rampage and would live long enough to take his sick attitude further into adulthood, perhaps achieving some position and influence over many others.

Business, politics, the military… The world could have been his oyster.

He had already been given many of the advantages in life (money, education) that others could use as a stepping stone to a life of great success and influence. He, on the other hand, made a conscious choice to throw all of it away in one night of sickening self-obsessed violence.

It's quite possible that he could have rose into the halls of power and influence in our society, while still harboring his feelings of resentment and hatred of others, and no one would have understood what kind of person that he actually was. Not to mention the fact that he could have used whatever power and influence he could have gained to protect himself from any scrutiny.

Although I grieve for his victims and I'm grateful for the fact that he chose to no longer walk this Earth, I can only think that the rest of us dodged some potentially serious figurative bullets later on from this sick person.

Hey, everybody, I found Frank the Caver on the Discussionist!!
