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.
