(AP) HOUSTON - A Houston police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair Saturday inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.

Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said the man cornered the officer in his wheelchair and was making threats while trying to stab the officer with the pen. At the time, the officer did not know what the metal object was that the man was waving, Silva said.

She said the man came "within inches to a foot" of the officer and did not follow instructions to calm down and remain still.

He didn't realize it was a pen, but did notice it was made out of metal.

How scary is a one armed one legged man in a wheelchair, even if it was a knife the size of a pen. My guess is that could have been handled a bit better.

Maybe they should add amputees in wheelchairs to the list of proper targets for tasers beside kids and grannies. 15.gif

Yup, hide in the house, work and give 20% minimum of your salary to fund your own demise. Keep your mouth shut about it, and things will be just swell. vic.gif

rofl.gif Gawd, that's got hilarious and pathetic written all over it. These poor medicated waste of oxygen tards are going to be in for the shock of their lives WTSHTF. Not going to be long before they are confronted with a problem that a twinkie or a ding-dong can't cure.
Tis already happening, just not kicked into high gear... yet.

Well, I guess his options to 'kneecap' the guy were reduced by 50% so he shifted to the 100% odds of a chest or head shot. (double tap?)

Jeebus ~ the shït in the news these days is unreal. I mean, tasing woulda' been bad ~ but drillin' the poor bastard with lead?

In all fairness to the officer, he had no idea if wheelchair might have been using bath salts. That would have made wheelchair guy a zombie. Take no chances and ALWAYS double tap a zombie.



Pfffttt...


I thought you guys were ready for the zombie apocalypse.

HPD is taking a lot of heat lately as they should. In 1-week a speeding ticket scam was uncovered which bilked the taxpayers millions in overtime charges, another was found dealing illegal drugs, 2-officers found guilty and fired from the Chad Holley case beating and kicking him while was restrained by officers face down are rehired. Now this

This is just in 1-week. Taxpayers are getting pissed off.

"An alleged beer theft turned into a confrontation with police overnight with an officer firing her weapon.

Police say officers were driving by a convenience store on Dowling around 11pm Saturday when a clerk ran out yelling he had been robbed.

Officers stopped and the clerk pointed out a car and said the robber was inside. The driver obeyed police commands to come out with his hands up. They say a passenger in the backseat was moving around.

"The passenger in the back seat got out of the vehicle and started to make a move like he was going to get down on the ground then jumped up and made an aggressive move at the officer," HPD spokesperson Kese Smith said. "The officer, fearing for her safety, discharged her duty weapon one time, did not strike the suspect."

The officer is a 16-year veteran named P. Briscoe. The suspect fled and has not been caught.

Police said they later learned that what had been taken was a 24-pack of beer. "
