Misleading and inaccurate "anti-gun" news story. The video calls the weapon a "semi-automatic" handgun. The online text says it wasn't the officer's "service revolver". The police haven't used revolvers in approximately two decades. Another news network confirmed that a bullet did not strike the child. The liberals and their media puppets will stop at nothing when it comes to attacking firearms ownership. Liberals want to disarm YOU by any means necessary. This anti-gun propaganda piece has a very foul stench. Don't buy it! You're being had.
The kid could have fallen of his tricycle and split his head open. That wouldn't be newsworthy. A kid gets a scratch or a bump... Introduce a firearm and all hell breaks loose.
Child injured in accidental shooting
PHOENIX (KPHO) - Authorities in Surprise say a 4-year-old was hurt when he accidentally shot a handgun near his face.
Surprise police spokesman St. Bert Anzini said the boy was alone in the master bedroom of a home located in the 17000 block of West Calavar Road when the shooting happened around 11 a.m. http://www.kpho.com/story/16025166/child-injured-in-accidential-shooting
In the comment section, Cheryl said, "Who leaves a loaded gun around with a child in the house? It is just unbelievable the stupidity and carelessness of parents. Luckily the kid is okay, but growing up like this, with careless parents, he may have well been shot. It doesn't seem he will have a productive life if the parents are faulty on safety. Where else do they not do right by the child? Education, health care....the list goes on and on"
Oddly, I grew up in a home that was full of loaded firearms. From a very early age, my brothers and I were taught what to touch and NOT to touch. There were rules in my father's house. We learned that firearms were tools and should never foot the blame when something went wrong. I also learned that it was stupid to blame inanimate objects for human error/wrongdoing.
Well Cheryl, what good is an empty firearm when an intruder enters your home with the intention of robbing, raping and murdering you? Maricopa County is a dangerous place thanks to Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and his open arms policy to illegal alien criminals. Carjackings, robbery, home invasions and murder are daily events in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, including Scottsdale. Get a clue. Stay alive!
Police ID Suspect and Victim in Road Rage Murder
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The man who called Scottsdale police Thursday evening to say he had just shot someone has been charged with second-degree murder. He was identified on Friday as David Ross Appleton, 59.
On Thursday, officers said they arrived at a CVS store near Pinnacle Peak and Pima Road and found Appleton. http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/crime/police-id-suspect-and-victim-in-road-rage-murder-11112011
Why does the media immediately label the fatality as "the victim"? The man that cheats death is automatically branded "the suspect". This was likely a case of self defense. The media has tainted the potential jury pool, making a fair trial unlikely. If an assailant reaches in my window, they're getting shot (as per Arizona statutes regarding the use of lethal force).
I suspect that Appleton's criminal charges were politically motivated. The system doesn't want its' citizens defending themselves. Our government wants defenseless "sheeple".
Apparently, Appleton had been a victim of road rage before. Having worked as a professional driver in the Phoenix area for many years, I can say that stupid and careless people tried to kill me on a daily basis. I lost count of the road rage incidents that I either witnessed or was a victim of. Not once did I call 911. If you life in in jeopardy, “right now”, what are the police going to be able to do for you when they get around to responding? All they will do is take a report after the fact. By then, you may be dead.
One night at Indian School Rd & 23 Rd Ave. (a real shitty area) an obviously intoxicated Asian male subject nearly collided with me. He became angry and chased me to an AM/PM gas station. He exited his vehicle and approached my window. Before he got to the window, my Sig Sauer P226 was already in my hand. He saw the weapon and promptly got his ass out of dodge. For all I know, he may have driven off to kill somebody with his car.
Road Rage Victim's Friend Calls Him 'Gentle'
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - We're learning more about the valley man who was shot to death in what police are calling a case of road rage.
The incident took place Thursday night in a CVS parking lot in the intersection on Pima and Pinnacle Peak roads. http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/crime/road-rage-victims-friend-talks-11122011
Of course, the deceptive and sneaky media follows up with a back story. Oh! The guy that was killed was such a nice guy. In reality, he was probably a total asshole in the moments before he was shot. If this was actually the case, the lame stream media would never ever admit it.
