Update on Orlando Airport Gunman: The Suicidal Black Man Turned Coward and Surrendered

UPDATE: NO PHOTO YET, BUT POLICE HAVE REVEALED THAT THE MAN HAD A FAKE GUN.

A BLACK MAN WITH A GUN CAUSED A LOT OF INCONVENIENCE IN ORLANDO TUESDAY NIGHT.

News about the identity of the man with a gun who shut down parts of Orlando Airport broke a few minutes ago.

I had reported interpreting the gunman’s voice as nonwhite. I was right again. Unfortunately, there’s no photo available of him yet, but I’ll update this post when one becomes available.

It appears the perp wanted to be shot to death by the police but changed his mind at some point.

WESH

A man accused of pointing a gun at an Orlando police officer at Orlando International Airport was taken into custody Tuesday night, according to the Orlando Police Department.

The suspect was identified as Michael W. Petticrew, 26. He faces one count of aggravated assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer and will be held under the Baker Act, police said.

At 7:28 p.m., the Orlando Police Department was notified about a disturbance in the rental car area of the airport, police said during a news conference Tuesday. Police officers made contact with the suspect, who they described as a black male, holding a gun, police said.

The suspect pointed the gun at officers and said, “Shoot me, shoot me,” according to Orlando police Chief John Mina.

The incident was contained to the rental car area, police said.

Airport employees contacted the Orlando Police Department regarding the incident. A portion of the airport was temporarily locked down.

According to police, there is no active shooter, and no shots were fired.

The Baker Act, referred to in the story, is a Florida law that allows for the emergency incarceration and treatment of suspected mentally ill people. Read more at Wikipedia.

(Misleading Headline) Lesbian couple who were arrested in Hawaii ‘for kissing in a grocery store’ sue the police

COURTNEY WILSON AND TAYLOR GUERRERO. THEY MISTOOK A SUPERMARKET FOR A MOTEL. NOW THEY WANT DAMAGES.
courtney_Wilson_left_and_Taylor_Guerrero

The Daily Mail headline, also the title of this post, is misleading, as noted in parenthesis above. The two dykes pictured were not arrested for kissing in a supermarket, but for assaulting a police officer who ordered them to control themselves.

Methinks the DM wants us to sympathize with the clitty lickers. If so, it didn’t work judging from the comments on the DM website.

Daily Mail

Police are investigating allegations that a lesbian couple on vacation in Hawaii were wrongfully arrested and assaulted by an officer after he saw them kissing in a grocery store.

Courtney Wilson and Taylor Guerrero, from Los Angeles, said they were harassed because the officer did not like their public displays of affection in a Foodland store on Oahu’s North Shore in March.

In a federal lawsuit filed on Tuesday, the couple said Officer Bobby Harrison, who was shopping in uniform, had observed ‘consensual romantic contact’ between the pair.

They were walking through the aisles holding hands and at one point hugged and kissed.

Ha! The ladies must have thought they were marching in a gay pride parade.

In a loud voice, he ordered them to ‘stop’ and ‘take it somewhere else’.

The women complied and continued shopping, the lawsuit said. But when Harrison again saw them being affectionate with each other, he threatened to have them thrown out of the store.

While the women were in the check-out line, Harrison approached them and the situation escalated – and Wilson says he punched her in the face.

“The situation escalated?” Well, that really tells the story. The ladies will have to do better than that.

Wilson said Harrison grabbed her by the wrist, and she started to call 911.

‘He was bumping his belly against Courtney,’ Guerrero said. ‘He said, ‘you girls don’t know how to act. You don’t know the difference between a motel and a grocery store.”

When Guerrero tried to get in between her girlfriend and the officer, he shoved her. She kicked him as she was falling, she said.

‘The whole situation got physical,’ Wilson said. ‘I got punched in the face by him.’

That’s better. The Hispanic half of the lovey dovey couple admits kicking the cop. You don’t do that, dummy.

And because Harrison did not have any handcuffs on him, store employees helped restrain the women, as customers watched.

‘You can’t really blame them for not getting involved,’ Wilson said.

Both Wilson and Guerrero were arrested and charged with felony assault on an officer.

The incident happened on the second day of their vacation – their first trip to Hawaii.

The DM comments are highly negative toward our two lusty carpet munchers. These two were putting on a show, getting in your face, and trying to provoke a reaction so they could stir up stuff. They got more stuff than they wanted. But the payoff is now fame and a possible payout.

It seems that every butthurt member of the “protected class” is provoking a fuss and then suing for damages.

As usual the police are investigating the officer’s conduct.

There must have been a full moon in Bloomington, as the loonies were out.

From Indiana Student Daily…

Bloomington police 
arrested Meranda Prince, a 22-year-old Bloomington resident, on preliminary charges of battery and battery on a police officer Wednesday.

Prince was part of a large group counter-protesting the Traditional Youth Network on Wednesday before a lecture delivered by author Tim Wise in the Indiana Memorial Union.

The TYN group was protesting anti-racism author Tim Wise’s lecture in the IMU.

After Officer Randy Gehlhausen arrived on Fourth Street, he witnessed Prince run behind a male protester and strike him in the head. The officer tried to arrest her on the charge of battery, but she pinched and grabbed his arm hair, according to the report. She then struck his genitals, resulting in pain.

Once in handcuffs, Prince was placed in an IU Police Department squad car. She was charged with battery, a Class B misdemeanor, and battery on a police officer resulting in 
injury, a Level 6 felony.

Jury Declines to Imprison A Man Who Survived A Cop’s Murder Attempt

Michael W. Rogers, age 53--took six bullets from a cops gun, but lived to stand trial for "resisting arrest"

Michael W. Rogers, age 53–took six bullets from a cop’s gun, but lived to stand trial for “resisting arrest”

What is society supposed to do when the guys who are hired to protect us from the bad guys ARE the bad guys?

As the deadlocked jury was dismissed in the trial of Delaware resident Michael W. Rogers, at least half of them favored the defendant with a smile. Perhaps the prosecution hadn’t been sufficiently diligent in their efforts to purge the jury pool of decent and conscientious people. Another possibility is that half or more of the panel rebelled against the indecency of trying to imprison a 53-year-old man for the supposed offense of surviving a police officer’s attempt to murder him.

Last August, Rogers was asleep in the home he shares with his then-87-year-old mother, Lorraine, when Delaware State Trooper Matthew Morgan materialized on their doorstep. Morgan said that he wanted to question Rogers about a non-injury traffic accident that had occurred earlier that evening. Unfortunately, Lorraine – whose family includes law enforcement officers – let the 28-year-old stranger into the home, rather than ordering him away.

When Michael was told that a police officer wanted to speak with him, he replied that he needed to put his clothes on. In short order Morgan invited himself into Michael’s bedroom and assaulted him. When he failed to subdue the much older man, Morgan attempted to shoot him with a Taser, but the reliably lethal device had no effect.

Apparently frustrated over losing a fight, the costumed aggressor pulled his gun and pointed it at Michael and Lorraine.

“Don’t you shoot my mother!” exclaimed Michael. In reply Morgan emptied his clip, hitting Michael with six of nine rounds.

The victim was admitted to a local hospital in critical condition. While he was recovering from surgery, and his would-be murderer enjoyed a paid vacation, Michael was charged with second-degree “assault on a police officer” and “resisting arrest with violence” – both of which are felonies. Eventually the first charge was reduced to the third degree, making it a misdemeanor.

Morgan had initially said that his purpose in inflicting himself on the Rogers home was to write an $89 extortion note (more commonly called a “traffic citation”) for “inattentive driving.” The incident that gave rise to the visit involved a trivial fender-bender that resulted in minor damage to the ornamental filigree on a license plate frame. In any case, the traffic citation was never filed – which means that the only reason Michael Rogers was hauled into court was to face punishment for repelling Morgan’s initial aggression, and surviving the trooper’s unwarranted use of lethal force.

During the trial, Morgan maintained – perhaps we can say it together – that he “feared for his life,” and claimed that his victim had threatened him with a coffee table. No, really.
