Another Massive Cop Out

Remember folks, according to conservatives, it's on you the citizens to always obey police officers at all times, or your life is forfeit.  This applies to off-duty police officers too, right?

A Houston woman was shot in the head by an off-duty police officer after she honked at him for cutting her off, KHOU 11 reports.

The victim — who did not wish to be identified for fear of retaliation — said that she was driving on the 610 Loop when Kenneth Caplan cut her off.

“He was about to hit me,” she said, “so I switched to the other lane, got in front of him and cut him off. I guess that pissed him off,” because he pulled alongside her, rolled down his window and opened fire.

“He was aiming at me and I thought he was going to cuss me out. It didn’t register that I was, you know, going to get shot. I just started crying because I knew I was going to die,” the victim said. “I wanted to call my mom to tell her ‘I love you.’”

One bullet grazed her head, opening a gaping wound that would not stop bleeding.

“I was like ‘oh my God, he just shot me.’ I was applying pressure to my head because it wouldn’t stop bleeding,” the victim said. “The blood was in between my nails, just crazy blood, and all over my cellphone, just covered.”

If she had just obeyed the police officer, she wouldn't have been shot.  That's the "lesson of Ferguson" we're supposed to all have learned, yes?  She didn't obey the law and she didn't obey the officer, so her life is forfeit.  That's what conservatives tell us we need to do or else people get shot.

Right?  Clearly she was a threat to the officer with her vehicle.  He was afraid for his life.  He had every right to shoot her, there's no need for a grand jury, and we should take the officer at his word 100%, anyone else is a radical and identity politics hustle, right?

And Cliven Bundy's posse? Does "the lesson of Ferguson" apply to them, too?

Right. Rule #1 : Police are ALWAYS right. Rule #2 : In the event they are ever wrong, see rule #1.

"Judge Dredd"s without the cool uniform. Or, you know, slight touch of morals.

Those weren't police - they were jackbooted government thugs from the Bureau of Land Management. They had no right to even BE on Cliven Bundy's land (don't let the jackbooted thugs tell you it's gov'mnt land, either), let alone wear a sidearm.

Every good American needs to buy at least one weapon to keep themselves safe from the jackbooted thugs of the Illegal Muslim Communist Usurper administration, or they will sell this great land back to Mexico for the Reconquisto

Haven't you seen the latest photos of all their sweet gear? They're working on fixing the uniform deficiency.
