Cop Shoots Unarmed Woman To Death For Rolling Up Her Car Window
Sadly, this isn't an isolated incidence of police brutality, but rather, I would contend this is a growing pattern of police that are being trained to be overly aggressive.
Last week, it was the story of the cops that managed to secure a search warrant of someone's anal cavity who they pulled over for a traffic stop and the only probable cause was the victims facial expressions. Before this was the unarmed mother...with no priors, shot to death by officers in her car in D.C. her crime, having supposedly rammed a gate near the White House. There is this story of the father that as shot and killed as police tried to take custody of his son, serious questions remain. There was this one, "Woman Arrested, Stripped, & Jailed… For Forgetting To Pay Traffic Ticket. Of course, these are just a few of the stories that I have come across, which means there is much more of this abuse happening in America, right now. -W.E.
Kris Buchele says he saw a Culpeper Town Police officer shoot 54-year-old Patricia Cook to death in the Epiphany Catholic School parking lot at around 10 a.m. Thursday, February 9.
Buchele is a carpenter who was working on the house next door. He says he heard loud arguing outside and looked through a window where he had a clear view of the school parking lot. Cook was in her Jeep Wrangler .
State police say Cook rolled up the window, catching the officer's arm inside, and then dragged him.
Buchele says it didn't happen that way. He describes an encounter which looked and sounded like the officer shooting a person a point blank range, not because he feared for his life, but because the woman did not obey his order to stop rolling up the window.
"He was right next to the vehicle. He had one hand on the door handle and one hand on his weapon. And she was rolling the window up. And they were exiting out of the parkng lot.
The window was half way up he said 'stop or I'll shoot.' I really didn't think he was going to do it. But she got the window all the way up and that's when he shot. And then she took a left out of the parking lot here and he stepped out in the street and fired five more times," said Buchele.
