Anyone who believes that the U.S. has not become a police state needs simply to get online and check the news headlines for about an hour. Just yesterday, cops arrived at a home in Arizona, after receiving a call that a 24 year old woman who suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome was suicidal. They summarily responded by doing her the favor of giving her what she wanted by shooting her dead.
Two weeks ago, police officers and Federal agents in Oregon shot and killed an unarmed protester, Lavoy Finicum, in cold blood, hitting him nine times, this, while he had his hands in the air.
It appears that many citizens across the nation know that if the cops show up, they are pretty much facing a life or death situation, and many of them are prepared.
Just an hour ago, again in Oregon, police officers arrived to serve a warrant on a man, and he shot and killed one of the officers when they arrived.
Sergeant Jason Goodding, 39, was shot after he and a second officer confronted Phillip Ferry, 55, on a street in downtown Seaside, about 80 miles west of Portland, Oregon State Police said.
Ferry resisted arrest and the second officer attempted to subdue him with a stun gun, state police said, adding that the suspect opened fire and hit Goodding. The second officer then returned fire, wounding the suspect, state police said.
Ferry, who was wanted on a felony assault warrant, was armed at the outset of the confrontation, state police said.
