Cop scared of dog accidentally shoots 4 year old Columbus Ohio

http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2015/06/19/whitehall-ohio-4-year-old-accidentially-shot-by-columbus-police-officer.html

WHITEHALL, Ohio - Gary Parsley says the shooting that happened on Chandler Drive in Whitehall, Friday afternoon, happened in an instant.

“Everything happened really fast,” he said.

Parsley says a Columbus Police Officer came to his house to follow up on a hit-and-skip case Parsley says he was a victim of two weeks ago. He says when the officer stepped outside - a woman, two houses down, came running out and pleading for help.

“She was wanting medical attention for her sister,” Parsley said. “That’s why she called the guy over there.”

Parsley went back inside his house. A few seconds later he heard the gunshot.

“I did hear the gunshot – it was very loud,” he said. “At first I thought maybe he’d shot the dog, because she was saying something about ‘Why would you try to shoot the dog?’ and he said something like the dog was attacking him, or something like that. Then, she started saying ‘You shot my kid!’.”

According to CPD, when the officer approached the house the family’s dog charged him.

“The officer fires one shot at the dog, misses the dog and accidentally shoots a four-year-old in the leg,” CPD spokeswoman, Denise Alex-Bouzounis, said.

Parsley says neighbors called 911. Police and first responders were there within minutes.

“They brought the girl out,” he said. “She wasn’t on a stretcher. One of the paramedics was carrying her. She had a blanket around her and there was a little bit of blood on the blanket, but she seemed to be conscious. Her head was poking around she wasn’t, like, screaming or crying that I could tell.”

Parsley doesn’t understand why the officer felt the need to shoot in the first place.

“ was a big guy and they have tasers and clubs and stuff,” he said. “I don’t know why you would raise a gun. I really don’t agree with him just pulling his gun out and trying to shoot the dog.”

According to Alex-Bouzounis, when asked about the breed of the dog, she says it was a mutt and would not specify on its size.

The child was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and is expected to recover. CPD continues to investigate the shooting and Alex-Bouzounis says the officer that was involved is being questioned.

Every American should feel insulted that Netanyahu spoke before our Congress

The fact is it was disrespectful to the office of the POTUS. We have 1 President in this country the gall of Boehner and Netanyahu is beyond belief. This President has been treated so disrespectfully from day one and yes I believe his skin color is most of the reason.

Tamir Rice

According to court documents obtained by BuzzFeed’s Stephanie McNeal, the city of Cleveland, Ohio is claiming that 12-year-old Tamir Rice’s death — as well as the pain and suffering caused to his family by it — was his own fault.

Tamir Rice was shot and killed while playing with a replica gun in a park last November. Rice had been playing with the replica in the park when rookie Officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner pulled up in a police cruiser and, within two seconds, shot him dead.

The incident was captured on video, but neither Officer Loehmann nor his partner knew that when they gave investigators their initial statements, in which they claimed that Rice was with a group of young boys and was waving the gun around with the intention of shooting someone.


The investigation was transferred from the Cleveland Police Department to the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department after Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said it required “an extra layer of separation and impartiality.”

Rice’s family filed a lawsuit against the city in December, and then another in January after hiring a new set of lawyers.

I think Black History should be taught in all Public Schools

not the whitewashed history the real history. My kids have been taught black history at home, but it should be a required subject and not just glanced over in February.

about "Hidden Colors 3"

I was so angry for days I couldn't post about MLK

This man did more for humanity period than any of the keyboard jockeys negating his historic life and all the lives he changed and saved. Any man who would lay down his life for the love of his fellow man is more important than any of them will ever be.

Man killed by bridge collapse

http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2015/01/19/bridge-collapse-75-south/22031429/

The "catastrophic pancake collapse" happened about 10:30 p.m. as a crew prepared the old Hopple Street overpass for demolition, according to a statement from the city. It was part of the old northbound off-ramp to Hopple Street. The new bridge is now open and remains open.

As the old bridge collapsed to the ground, a semi driver crashed into the rubble almost simultaneously -- some of the debris still falling onto the front of the semi.

The city said it would launch an investigation of what caused the collapse. According to an Enquirer review of federal bridge inspection data, the bridge did not appear to have any structural problems.

While they keep talking about violence in France..........

We still have violent police in America killing Americans. The Police brutality is still a problem even though it isn't being reported in America.....
