I'm a skeptic by nature, so I'm always looking for inconsistencies in a story or article that I read or hear. I only found one minor problem with this story, which really isn't so much a problem but more of a question(s). I'll save that question until after the story.
Here is the email exactly as I received it in a .pdf document:
Graphic Pictures - Calexico, CA Police Department (Shooting) Caution: ….These headshots are very graphic!!!
On August 30, 2012, at approximately 0300 hours, Calexico Police Officers were dispatched to 2nd Street in Calexico, California, in reference to a subject out of control. The subject had had numerous encounters with local law enforcement and was a known member of the Mexican Mafia. Two Calexico Police officers arrived on scene and discovered him in front of his drive way with two (2) kitchen knives waving them around. Officers called for assistance and they deployed their AR-15 (Long gun) ordering him to drop the knives, subject launched at the officers and the officers opened fire. Moral of the story…Head shots are bad for your health…don’t bring a knife to a gun fight….I have a small question.......Did those AR-15's have bullet buttons installed on them as required by the State of Commiefornia? Just wondering. Oh that's right, it's only required by law for us law-abiding citizens to have them installed on our rifles. Not law enforcement. Politicians (especially the communist liberals here in Commiefornia) don't like us serfs having an equal opportunity of survival in a gun fight. It's that "All for me, none for thee!"government motto rearing it's ugly face again. It's yet another example of tyranny, but that's another topic for another day.
Here's what I question about this story and what I put in my reply to my buddy:
Why would the Calexico PD deploy AR-15's if the guy was close enough to launch at the officers with anything? Is that SOP for the Calexico PD to ready themselves with rifles in that situation? I would think that the two officers' service pistols would be sufficient in a setting that puts them close enough to be injured or killed by the asshole armed only with knives. Personally, at that range I would rather pump a few rounds of .00 Buck into him from my 590 A1, but that's just me.
If I get an answer back from my buddy on those questions I will post it here. I'm not trying to be critical of Calexico PD's use of AR-15's to get the job done (well, maybe a little), it's just that their choice of weapon in this case has me baffled, given the scenario.
Okay! Enough of my drunken babble.You wanna see the dead puto?
Let me say this; If a fucking paper cut or bloody nose or knocked out teeth makes you queasy, you probably don't want to see this. It's real, and it's graphic. Like it should be!! Also this is probably NSFW, unless you have a cool boss. Click "Read more" below to see this dead motherfucker and his opened mind. You've been warned.
Looks like a round entered through his chin and exited through the top of his mellon, or he just took multiple shots to the head. Either way, I'd say he's all set and ready to go for his dirt nap. He's got his shirt tucked in and everything. Via con dios, puto!
