GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A Grand Valley State University student shot by an Ottawa County deputy told his parents he lifted his right arm to cover his eyes from a bright flashlight when the shot was fired.
He told them he didn't know it was a police officer shining the light.
"He never even had a chance to even see who was coming at him, with a bright flashlight in his face," Sheryl Copp, the mother of Derek Copp, told 24 Hour News 8. "He had no clue. He heard someone knock on his door, and he had no clue."
They were entering about 9 p.m. Wednesday through the rear sliding door when the deputy, whose name was not released, fired one shot, police said. That deputy is on paid administrative leave pending the investigation.
Copp's parents said they didn't learn about the shooting until just before 3 a.m. Thursday -- six hours later. They said a nurse and their son called from the hospital. Copp told his parents he gave police their home number and cell phone numbers. They questioned why police did not call them.
Does Ron Paul have a legitimate argument to end the WAR ON DRUGS? SEE VEDIO BELOW
This WAR ON DRUGS is not about stopping the drug trade coming across our southern border. It's about states cashing in on the milk cow of prosecuting our children for smoking pot. I would love to be able to question this 12 year deputy sheriff on how much pot he smoked while in high school and college. Yet these task force unites approach every drug raid as if this is a drug dealer ready to shoot. And why is it that they always choose to approach at night under the cover of darkness?
Is there a cure to this madness? Yes! Learn how the power of a Jury can send a clear message to repeal the WAR ON DRUGS. SEE WHO OWNES YOUR BODY.
A Look at the Jury System and Our Participation in It
The power of a juror:
A single juror has unlimited and unreviewable power that cannot be reversed…. if he is wise. Just one juror can hang the jury and prevent a conviction. And his reasons need not be explained, nor must he even let them be fully known to a single soul. He can just vote to acquit and say nothing else. He can keep his reasons entirely private should he so desire. The juror is a judge of the facts (he didn’t pay his taxes, he had a gun, he protested outside the designated "free speech zone") and he is also a judge of the laws forbidding such actions. Mid-nineteenth-century jurors often refused to convict those who were charged with violating the Fugitive Slave Act. If just a few jurors refused to convict in tax cases the whole phoney mess could be defanged. This power is so great because that way we don’t need 51%, we only need one out of twelve and they are powerless to overcome us.
(An important side note: The juror also has the right to ask questions during the trial but it is best to refrain exercising in our times lest he get bounced from the jury by an arbitrary evil "Judge" for "misconduct.") FULL STORY
Lets take a look at another task force spying on American Citizens.
Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) entitled “The Modern Militia Movement”
This Missouri Police Report which has received wide criticism as reported at KansasCity.com describes anyone who supported not only Third Party candidates, but also GOP Primary Candidate, Republican Ron Paul, as possible members of the Modern Militia Movement. So anyone displaying a bumper sticker on their car showing support for Ron Paul, Bob Bar or Chuck Baldwin, is to be approached with extreme caution. Just like the extreme caution shown in the drug raid on a college student who was shot last week because he opened his door at night, and covered his eyes to block the bright lights shining in his eyes. One would not expect to get shot in the process.
Missouri report on militias, terrorists draws criticism
"It seems like they want to stifle political thought," said Roger Webb, president of the University of Missouri campus Libertarians. "There are a lot of third parties out there, and none of them express any violence. In fact, if you join the Libertarian Party, one of the things you sign in your membership application is that you don't support violence as a means to any ends."
Neal, who has a Ron Paul bumper sticker on his car, said the next time he is pulled over by a police officer, he won't know whether it's because he was speeding or because of his political views.
"If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specifically identified as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is probably going to be pretty apprehensive and not thinking in a rational manner," Neal said. "And this guy's walking up to my vehicle with a gun."
"It's giving the makeup of militia members and their political beliefs," Hotz said of the report. "It's not saying that everybody who supports these candidates is involved in a militia. It's not even saying that all militias are bad." FULL STORY
If this report isn't targeting the American Citizen who dares to support a candidate other than the chosen media and establishment darlings, and isn't saying that belonging to a 2 Amendment support group such as a Militia, than what is the purpose and nature of this report? A report that clearly states that anyone with the beliefs outlined in this report view the police as the enemy!
Yet, Sean Hannity reports on a group that isn't described in this MIAC Report. Real Terrorists training right here in America, protected by OUR 1 Amendment Right. Watch!
