Another Police Officers Gone Wild Tragedy Story

Washington Scandal caught some slack when we suggested private citizens Arm themselves as the economy goes into a tailspin. We got in deeper water when we suggested private citizens and protesters arm themselves with Stun Guns because too many police have gotten out of hand, are ignoring procedures and the law in running rough shod over law abiding citizens. Seems several law enforcement officers were not happy with the fact that I would use a stun gun if confronted by a Police Officer Gone Wild, confronted with a police officer wrongfully attempting to deny me my rights...if they can shoot now and ask questions later, I am going to stun now and let the courts straighten shit out later...at least then I am alive to hear the verdict. Well today, it brings me no joy to share with my readers another story of Police Gone Wild, a perfect example of their SHOOT NOW, and ASK QUESTIONS LATER mentality. It is more important now than at any time before that Americans exercise their right to take up and bear arms...you life may depend on your ability to defend it.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — A newlywed killed by police after he stepped outside his home to confront suspected burglars was shot in a case of mistaken identity, police said.

Julian Alexander died after being shot twice in the chest by a police officer who was chasing four burglary suspects early Tuesday morning.

Police Chief John Welter said the officer ran into Alexander, mistook him for one of the four juvenile suspects and shot him.

"The last thing we ever want to do, No. 1, (is) take somebody's life," he said. "And we certainly don't want to take the life of someone who is mistakenly believed to be involved in some criminal activity."

"He was a good kid, trying to protect his house," said Alexander's mother-in-law Michelle Mooney. "And the police, instead of asking questions, they just shot first. Somebody has to be held responsible for this."

Welter would not release the officer's name, but said he was a 10-year veteran of the department. The officer was placed on paid leave pending an investigation.

"It's mistaken identity, but that doesn't bring my son back," said Alexander's father Jerry.
