last month a cop in plain clothes, Thomas Smith, gunned down a 14
yo 8th grader named Dedric Colvin adjacent a basketball court near
the center of Baltimore. The kid was carrying a basketball in one hand and
a Daisy Powerline 340 BB gun in the other. Dedric survived, taking a shot
to the leg and to the shoulder.
According to the Baltimore
Sun, Smith, who had 12 years of cop experience, and his side-kick,
who had 6 years experience, spotted Dedric strutting along Baltimore St.
with what looked like a handgun. When they approached the kid, he took off
running and the two cops gave chase. The boy soon gave up, stopped, and,
according to witnesses, raised the gun when he was told to drop it, but, apparently, did not
it. He shouted "It's not real." That's when Smith
shot him in the leg and the shoulder. No videos have surfaced.
The way these things work, until a video
surfaces to contradict what the cops say, we have to give them the benefit
of any doubt unless their stroy is just butt-head crazy. And the primary doubt in this case is whether
Dedric was hit in the leg first, or the shoulder. If the leg-shot came first and
Smith was actually aiming for the kid's legs, then the cop deserves our
respect, unlike that Cleveland pig Timothy Loehmann who gunned down
Rice point blank in November 2014, and then let the kid bleed out
on the ground without trying to help him.
In Dedric's case, the Daily Mail quotes a
witness, "Bryan," who said "the male officer shot him twice in the
leg," which turns out to be factually inaccurate seeing as how one of
two shots was to the shoulder, but it does, nevertheless, suggest that
Smith was aiming for the legs.
But, of course, Thomas Smith may have been
no better than Loehmann. If Smith was aiming at Dedric's torso and
the shoulder-wound came first while the leg wound came as the kid was
falling and Smith was still aiming for the torso . . . well, in that case Smith's
judgment would be as despicable as Loehmann's. We don't know. . . yet. But bullet entry/exit analysis should give a pretty good idea
of the sequence of the shots.
Smith's side-kick was probably a woman,
judging from the way Bryan described Smith as the "male
officer." But the point is not so much what her gender was as the
fact that she didn't fire, and that may be the most remarkable fact of all
in this situation.
And the reason I say it is that Baltimore
is one of dozens of US cities that take part in the
"National Counter-terrorism Seminar" program
where the zionist group ADL gives US
cops a free trip to Yisrael to learn how to target every suspect as a
terrorist and how to shoot only to kill. As Wendell
Griffen so eloquently suggests, it is practically impossible to see
the recent epidemic of extra-judicial executions by cops across the US and
not see that they are the same tactics used by the Government of
Yisrael (GoY) in the West Bank and East Jerusalem against
Palestinians protesting the theft of their homeland. The similar
techniques aren't happening as a result of coincidence. It is another one of many way GoY calls the shots in America,
literally in some instances. When US pigs line up and empty their clips
into unarmed people or people holding a knife at a safe distance,
like Milton Hall in Saginaw, MI and Mario Keith Woods in San
the pigs are replicating the GoY model.
But Smith's anonymous side-kick
declined to take part in the GoY-inspired shoot-only-to-kill death-dance favored by
cop-shops all across the country. Whoever she is, this Baltimore cop needs to
be identified, praised, and held up as a paragon of proper policing
technique. And, if the forensics prove that Smith was not shooting to kill
the boy but only to disable him, then he needs to be given credit nationwide,
Hope you're shooting hoops again soon, Dedric.
