    Some Funny Stuff

    NEWS Off-duty police officer fatally shoots home intruder who had argued with him about Black Lives Matter on Facebook Dylan Stableford - Dylan Stableford July 10, 2016 St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar (Photo: Jeff Roberson/AP) An off-duty police officer fatally shot a man who was trying to enter his St. Louis-area home late Saturday afternoon, Missouri officials say. According to police, 20-year-old Tyler Gebhard rang the doorbell at the officer’s Lakeshire, Mo., home shortly before 6 p.m. When the officer’s wife answered the door and refused entry, police said, Gebhard, a former high school football star, threw a 50-pound concrete planter through a rear window and attempted to enter. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Gebhard was shot twice in the chest by the officer, whose name was not released. Gebhard, who was known to the officer’s family, was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. (1/2) At appx 5:50p an off-duty St. Louis County police officer was involved in a shooting after a suspect broke into his home in Lakeshire. — St. Louis County PD (@stlcountypd) July 10, 2016 (2/2) The suspect, who was known to the family, demanded entry & threw a planter through a glass door. pic.twitter.com/dnDmNRmgEZ — St. Louis County PD (@stlcountypd) July 10, 2016 Belmar said the officer’s wife, mother-in-law, a toddler and an infant were in the home at the time of the incident and that the family members heard the officer tell the intruder to “get down” before shots were fired. Gebhard’s uncle, Patrick Brogan, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his nephew had become acquainted with the officer “through a church connection” and that the two “had been arguing on Facebook about Black Lives Matter.” Brogan added that Gebhard, who was biracial, suffered from bipolar disorder. “Tyler was going over to fight,” Brogan said. “When he got there he was met with a gun and the guy killed him.” Belmar said the officer’s actions were justified. “I don’t think the officer had a choice,” Belmar said. “I honestly don’t.” The incident comes amid broiling racial tensions following a pair of fatal police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge, La., and Falcon Heights, Minn., and the killings of five Dallas police officers during a Black Lives Matter protest over them. President Obama condemned the attacks on the officers. “Whenever those of us who are concerned about fairness in the criminal justice system attack police officers, you are doing a disservice to the cause,” Obama said while speaking to reporters in Madrid on Sunday. “First of all, any violence directed at police officers is a reprehensible crime and needs to be prosecuted. But even rhetorically, if we paint police in broad brush without recognizing that the vast majority of police officers are doing a really good job and are trying to protect people and do so fairly … then we’re going to lose allies in the reform cause.” The president also said it would be wrong to paint Black Lives Matter activists with a similarly broad brush. “I don’t think that you can hold well-meaning activists who are doing the right thing and peacefully protesting responsible for everything that is uttered at a protest site,” Obama sais. “The overwhelming majority of people who are involved in the Black Lives Matter movement, what they really want to see is a better relationship between the police and the community so that they can feel that it’s serving them. And the best way to do that is to bring allies forward.” On Friday, a day after the shootings in Dallas, a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb was shot and critically injured by a black man in an ambush during a traffic stop. Ballwin Police Chief Kevin Scott declined to speculate whether the attack was racially motivated. The suspect, 31-year-old Antonio Taylor, was on probation for a weapons violation in St. Louis when he was pulled over.

          You actually read that one big mess of words?
          When I saw that the post was one big mess, the thread title ambiguous at best and who the op was I knew it was worthless.
          I figured I'd just read the commentary to see if I was right.

          I think I was.

                  "An off-duty police officer fatally shot a man who was trying to enter his St. Louis-area home late Saturday afternoon, Missouri officials say. According to police, 20-year-old Tyler Gebhard rang the doorbell at the officer’s Lakeshire, Mo., home shortly before 6 p.m. When the officer’s wife answered the door and refused entry, police said, Gebhard, a former high school football star, threw a 50-pound concrete planter through a rear window and attempted to enter"

                  Looks like an off duty officer defended himself from an intruder. Intruder rang the door bell and was refused entry. He then took a planter and broke a window with it in an attempt to gain entry. Officer shot the intruder as he tried to get in. Intruder is now dead.

                  " Belmar said the officer’s wife, mother-in-law, a toddler and an infant were in the home at the time of the incident and that the family members heard the officer tell the intruder to “get down” before shots were fired. Gebhard’s uncle, Patrick Brogan, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his nephew had become acquainted with the officer “through a church connection” and that the two “had been arguing on Facebook about Black Lives Matter.” Brogan added that Gebhard, who was biracial, suffered from bipolar disorder. “Tyler was going over to fight,” Brogan said. “When he got there he was met with a gun and the guy killed him.” Belmar said the officer’s actions were justified"

                  Not to mention that the officer tried numerous times to prevent shooting him. Told him to "get down." Just goes to show...police don't want to shoot these guys. Their hand is forced typically. Also shows the violence surrounding BLM and it's supporters.

                        Hmm, ... words
                        Give a man fire, and he stays warm for one night. Set a man on fire, and he stays warm for the rest of his life.
