    Texas Campus Cop Kills Unarmed College Student After Sarcastic Remark

    My tin foil hat alarms are going off on this one.

    Texas Campus Cop Kills Unarmed College Student After Sarcastic Remark

    The 23-year-old communications arts major Robert Cameron Redus was pulled over for allegedly driving recklessly, according the police. After a “struggle” took place, the officer, Christopher Carter, fired six shots. The incident took place at an apartment complex not far from the school.

    “I didn't hear him say anything like, 'Get down on your hands and knees,' you know? I didn't hear him say anything. He just started shooting,” one witness told KSAT.com.

    Another witness told the San Antonio Express News that he heard Redus’ last words. “I heard (a man) say, 'Oh, you're gonna shoot me?' like sarcastic almost,” said Mohammad Haidarasl.


    Campus officer shoots, kills Texas college student after chase

    Alamo Heights police and the Texas Rangers were in charge of the investigation, which could be complicated because there's no video record of the first fatal police shooting in the school's history.

    University squad cars do come equipped with dashboard cams — but "it had fallen off the evening before the incident," the university said, blaming a change in the weather for causing the glue to fail.

    I don't tolerate sarcasm and I've shot many DP members for unlawful use thereof.

    Protect and serve. NOTE: buy better glue for video-cams.

    This was also in one of the articles...

    documents published by the San Antonio Express News show that he worked for the Texas university for two and a half years after holding nine different jobs at eight separate law enforcement agencies.

    Kind of sounds like people shifting crap around instead of fixing it.

    There won't be any winners or losers when this eventually goes to court. The cop will be fired and his career will be in the gutter whether he was justified or not. The kid won't get a chance to graduate and move on to have a productive life.

    Re: Texas Campus Cop Kills Unarmed College Student After Sarcastic Remark

    A Texas campus police officer shot and killed an honors student after a high-speed chase because the student stole his baton and began attacking him with it, the college said Monday.
    Did he attack the officer sarcastically?

    Taking a cop's baton away and attacking him with it is not too smart, particularly for an honor student. My guess is that there were chemicals involved, most likely ethanol.

    Care to bet on the outcome?

    This has nothing to do with politics and I'm NOT giving you a hard time. But I see how most of these things turn out and the cops take very good care of their own no matter how egregious the behavior.

    The camera fell off. Sure. Right.

    I'd venture to guess that it was personal in some sort of way.

    I wouldn't be so ready to support any statement's that the student attacked the cop. The statement seems to come from the police department and not any witness statement.

    He was unarmed, but he had one of the officers weapons?
