Stonewall Cop Strangles Man from Horse and Buggy to Death
Mississippi police are investigating an incident in which a man died after an interaction with a police officer. There are no official reports or footage available on the case, but initial witness statements indicate that the unarmed man was strangled to death by the officer for unknown reasons.
Jonathon Sanders was out exercising his horse when his night took a turn towards tragic finality. Here is a brief timeline of what is known.
- Sanders makes a stop and is seen having a friendly discussion with another man.
- That man is later pulled over and Sanders calls his brother to inform him.
- Sanders is driving his horse carriage when Officer Kevin Herrington begins driving right at him.
- Sanders pulls his equestrian cart into a nearby cousins yard to avoid collision.
- Herrington pulls up, gets out of his car, and an altercation begins.
- Sanders is soon dead of what appears to be strangulation.
- No weapons were found at the scene.
Now, I may not have me no fancy degree from DeVry University telling me how to do law enforcements, but I can smell a pile when I step in it. The department and investigators are not releasing any more information about the incident. Police officials are making bold statements about objectivity and all that other malarkey they pay bogus lip service to when they really screw up.
Meanwhile, the media is quick to point out the victims criminal record, centered around possession and sales of cocaine (a victimless crime) that got him incarcerated for five years. At the same time they are also quick to illuminate what a glowering record the officer has.
I guess the media is just as concerned with authentic objectivity as the cops are. fnord
We will be sure to keep an eye on this case until the official police investigation rules it justified and we can all stop fussing about the death of another human being by police.
