Without a camera, the incident could have been portrayed as White racist Cops shoots unarmed Muslim Teen. And  the subsequent investigations have revealed that the bullet catcher is named Ismail Hamed and was also charged with two counts of Intentional Act of Terrorism.

During the course of this investigation, our investigators, in partnership with our partners at the FBI and the task force that investigates these types of crimes, were able to determine that this individual have, for some time frame, been in the process of what we would describe as radicalizing,” said Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, during the news conference. “Additionally, evidence indicates, in his statements, that his intent that day was to further the actions of his ideology, and it is our belief that his intent was to harm that deputy, in an effort to promote terror.”

Some Left Wing pundits have said that complaints of police brutality have gone down because the officers have been forced to behave. I call that BS. The accusations have gone down because of all the videos made by people  crying they were mistreated were late found to be lying through their dentures when the police video is shown.

On other news. The officer took about 15 steps backwards before opening fire. I rally do not know if I would have taken that risk. Your mileage may vary on this one, specially if we try to figure out the least problematic legal approach.

  1. You see that cop exercising extreme restraint.
    Probably because he figured the idjit may have been attempting ‘suicide by cop’.
    In my world he hesitated too long before defending himself but appeared so calm and collected during and after that I have to give it to him that he knew he was good enough to handle the situation.

    That being said, with any young moslem these days, you seriously -no shit- have to figure they just may be going ‘johnnie-jihad’ and defend yourself accordingly.

  2. 1) Idiot brought a knife to a gun fight.

    2) Don’t throw rocks at guys with guns.

    3) Warrior of Allah didn’t realize a couple pistol rounds would HURT.

    4) Officer: “Put your hands on your head.” Warrior of Allah: *puts hands under ass* I’m guessing the idiot figured out where his head must be to have pulled this stunt.

    5) What did he think the rock he threw would do? With an underhand throw?

    1. As for #4, one of the rounds hit the shoulder and the idjit discovered that it ain’t like in TV where people ignore it and keep fighting. It probably broke bone and damaged nerves

  3. The reduction in complaints once body cameras are implemented is two fold.

    Cops ARE behaving better AND potential complainants are less likely to file a report with video evidence.

    You have to recall the petulant resistance of many departments with lots of complaints to getting the cameras to see it. That’s gotten lost with so many departments, the majority, who shrugged and said, “we don’t have anything to hide and this is more evidence to use against perpetrators.”

    1. “You have to recall the petulant resistance of many departments with lots of complaints to getting the cameras to see it.”

      Yes indeed. It is what I call “Institutional Inertia” or their refuse to change something already established for the dumbest of reasons

  4. On other news. The officer took about 15 steps backwards before opening fire. I rally do not know if I would have taken that risk. Your mileage may vary on this one, specially if we try to figure out the least problematic legal approach.

    Well, the officer backing away, and the “victim” essentially chasing after him shows very, very clearly who the aggressor was in this instance.

    May be remembering this incorrectly, but I thought there was a recent law of self defense (yes, I know, the stuff Andrew Branca brings up applies to civilians, not cops, but bear with me for a few sentences) talked about being able to very clearly show who the aggressor was, by attempting to leave an area. When the other person comes after you, the way I remember his advice, it shows to any causal observer, and if video exists, who the aggressor was, and you are less likely to get charged.

    Could be this deputy had similar thoughts running through his head (white guy with gun shooting a person of any other color), and how media has portrayed that in the past, and essentially did the backing up to cover his own rear end.

    1. On that “retreat” stuff, I wonder if that’s a “make it look good in court” argument, or a statement about the law. If the former, it might make general sense. If the latter, it depends on the state. Some have “duty to retreat” laws, some do not, some have them only in some places. And some like NH mention a duty to retreat that applies if you believe you can do so in complete safety — which in my mind translates to not much of a duty at all.

  5. Yes I would also agree that officer showed exceptional restraint. I’m suroisurp he didn’t immediately fire when the guy sped up his advance a bit.

    1. I HOPE he was on guard when the guy kept a hand in his hoodie pocket. Otherwise, he was lucky the Brave Warrior For Allah was playing out a fantasy and not seriously prepared for a fight. Had he not thrown the rock(s) and just drawn the knife and charged, he likely would have at least injured the officer.

      1. Textbook Tueller drill, IRL. Except at 8 feet instead of 21.

        Especially considering the deputy didn’t have his gun drawn until after the rocks. It would still have been holstered if the bad guy had decided to start with the knife instead.
