Tensions are on the rise in the major US city of Cleveland after 13 predominantly white police officers fired 137 shots to kill two unarmed African Americans following a 25-minute car chase.

Family members of the two victims, 30-year-old Malissa Williams and 43-year-old Timothy Russell are outraged over the incident, which took place Thursday night near the Justice Center in downtown Cleveland when several people claimed they heard a gunshot, leading to a high speed police chase after the couple’s vehicle and their killing, local media outlets reported.

137 shots, unarmed suspects, 13 police, 12 white, one Hispanic, bullet ridden victims….black

The reports have not yet indicated how the victims became suspects, prompting the long car chase and what prompted so many police officers to shoot the victims so many times, terrifying neighbors near a middle school, according to some news accounts.

Although a chasing police officer has claimed that the suspects pointed a gun at them during the chase, no weapons have been found in their vehicle and no bullet shell casings have been located outside the downtown building or along the route of the police chase.

Moreover, 12 of the 13 police officers involved in the brutal shooting have been identified as white, including five veteran detectives. The other police officer involved is reportedly Hispanic.

This has led many people to believe that the police shooting was racially motivated and part of a national trend in which a growing number of African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities have been targeted by mostly white American police forces.

Meanwhile dozens of local residents staged a protest rally in Cleveland on Monday, outside the middle school where the police shooting occurred, demanding answers for the brutal killing.

Some people in the group referred to the killings as a “lynching” and one protest sign compared the killing of the two African Americans to infamous American criminals “Bonnie and Clyde.”

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, meanwhile, expressed his own concerns about all aspects of the incidents, from the length of the pursuit to the number of officers involved.

    “Sorry, I was not clear with my remark! I did not try to criticise you, but that commenter calling your comment a rant!”

    You are not the moderator here. I am an adult. I do not need you as my mommy to defend me.

    K7KTR and I resolved the matter — amicably — between us, all by oursleves. Your “assistance” was neither necessary nor welcome.

    Not to be “insulting,” you understand, however I “civilly” request that, in the future, mind your own business!

  2. Hey Tyron,

    I love white people too, especially Anglos.


  3. As soon as you see the lights flash and/or hear the siren, as soon as traffic permits, you pull over.

    Attempting to flee from a pursuing cop is a totally dumbphucque thing to do. His car is faster than yours, his high-speed driving skills are better than yours, and you’re not gonna get away.

    In a sense, the cops didn’t kill the driver and his passenger — the driver killed himself and his passenger.

    The fact that the driver and his passenger were not armed would be relevant only if the cops knew that they weren’t armed. If someone chooses to flee, rather than pulling over, it would be reasonable for the cops to conclude that there was some serious reason that the driver was trying to get away.

    Go ahead and rant all that you want to about the oppressive police state and the overkill of 137 bullets. I won’t disagree with you on those two points. On the other hand, had the driver pulled over, then he and his passenger would probably still be alive.

    In a police state, stupidity can get you killed.

    • Well in that rant at least you admitted we were in fact in a POLICE STATE.

      What you say may have some weight, however with the current Prison system and how even Ron Paul noted that “Blacks” are more of a target for our judicial system then White’s are. Perhaps this man had a simple warrant and because of that and wanting to support his family he didn’t want to get caught.

      I live on a Reservation in Montana and Tribal pursuits are the same way. No one wants to be behind bars and even more so since most crimes that have “No Victim” like smoking Pot etc are used to fill the Prisons which are now privet ran and make large sums of money to keep them full.

      An American in tough times might steal a sandwich and pop and gets hard time, Yet Banker’s continue to launder countless Billion in Cartel Monies and not ONE Indictment. The Non-Federal Federal Reserve can give Trillions away and refuses to say who received what monies, but YOU as a Tax Payer and your Children’s Children will pay for their crimes in the form of mass Austerity as Social programs are stolen from to send US Boy’s to a War over lies and not one War Criminal is behind bars.

      You sound like your in law enforcement too. It is a known fact also that a officer will follow a person and eventually everyone will in some way break the law giving the officer probable cause for a stop and then the “Fun” begins… Don’t it?

      • “Well in that rant at least you admitted we were in fact in a POLICE STATE.”

        It was a comment, not a “rant,” and I stated it, I did not “admit” it.

        “What you say may have some weight…and not one War Criminal is behind bars.”

        No argument with any of that. I consider it an abomination that locking people up in cages is a growth industry. Moreover:

        “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.” — Anatole France

        “You sound like your (sic) in law enforcement too.”

        How could you so completely misunderstand what I wrote? I didn’t side with the cops. I said that when a cop wants to pull you over, if you don’t pull over, then you’re placing yourself in danger.

          I participate in several blogs in three different countries, however only in VT is where civility is to be desired. It should be up to the owners to clean up the place, you can disagree without being insulting.

          • @ Tomer

            Would you please point out where in my post where I did not demonstrate “civility,” where I was “insulting” to K7KTR?

          • Sooner or later, the comments section at VT always seems to devolve into ‘Uncle Gordy’s Literary Fight Club’. Enter at your own risk…lol

          • Martin

            Sorry, I was not clear with my remark! I did not try to criticise you, but that commenter calling your comment a rant!

            At VT we have a bunch of idiots without any manners and upbringing, no real education and class. Sure, they may have gone to college, but wasted their time and did not learn anything.
            They either cannot read or do not understand what they read, have no idea of connections in this world, and mouth off the same BS over and over.
            They try to win a discussion by insulting their opponent as their brain is not bright enough to do it otherwise. 21st century caveman.
            The sad part is that Gordon and Jim do not realise that this kind of gutter behavior destroys any class we should expect at Veterans Today, I am sure many of us just keeps clear of this blog. Other, more reputable blogs delete any insulting personal attacks, not so VT.
            During the past few years I have seen intelligent persons, who provided interesting and good comments, to leave discusted.

          • “At VT we have”

            WE? WE? oh em gee… ;)

    • Such thing would never happen in Europe, the US cops are known here as gun happy gangsters.
      Like that other guy on Times Square who only had a knife, yet he was shot over 30 times right front of hundreds and several cameras. Shoot him in the leg and take away the knife.

    • A story is breaking again… Where after the Cop’s handcuffed and placed the young teen in the back of his patrol car he shot himself in the head. I am sure that the video in/out of the vehicle may not have been on at this time too.

      @Martin I also meant no malice towards you. I am usually flamed with death threats from the JDL so you never know who one is commenting with.
      It is very obvious that Israel doesn’t like their dirty laundry to show. BUT they refuse to take it off the line for all to see, if one is looking.

  4. Welcome to the Police State — just as envisioned by the Zionists. How did they do this? They train our police forces as Gordon Duff indicates often. The same way Michael Chertoff had El-Al Airlines train our TSA.

    This increasing militaristic attitude in America is against our founding principles. Prior to the World Wars, they did the same to the German people.

    The only people that need to be policed are the Zionists. The Palestinians have shown that well. Our history shows that well. Accountability is their biggest fear.

  5. @ Tyron

    “…the reason why the Cops seem to be targetting black folks is because the crime rate of these black folks…”

    How revealing, your use of the word “targetting.”
