An all-too-common sight in America, especially when it comes to unnecessary police shootings.

How the &*%^@! are they training these zombies?

Officer arrived at wrong address and shot homeowner seven times because he “felt threatened”

Yesterday a grand jury declined to charge a Ft. Worth, Texas police officer who killed a 72-year-old man on his own driveway after arriving at the wrong address to investigate a burglary alarm.

The jury’s decision not to indict R.A. “Alex” Hoepper for the May 28 shooting death of Jerry Waller came after prosecutors presented 25 hours of testimony over four days, according to the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.
Waller died after Hoepper shot him seven times as the officer and his partner arrived at Waller’s house, mistakenly thinking that the burglary alarm going off across the street came from his residence.

Waller had been walking down his driveway with his gun to investigate the alarm he heard from his neighbor’s house.
“The 72-year-old man didn’t even make it to the house across the street before he was shot,” CBS Fort Worth reported. “He died on his own property.”
Hoepper later said that he shot Waller because he “felt threatened.”
Ft. Worth police chief Jeff Halstead believed the jury made the “right decision” not to indict Hoepper, even though the officers did not realize they were at the wrong address until a detective showed up later at the scene.
“I think it was proven through the autopsy and evidence that a gun was pointed directly at Officer Hoeppner and he was forced to make his decision,” he said.
But Waller’s family pointed out that since the shooting, the department had been “feeding misinformation” to the local news and to the public.
“We were disturbed by suggestions that police may have felt threatened by a man in his own garage faced with unknown trespassers wielding flashlights,” the family said in a released statement.

One of Waller’s neighbors, former Ft. Worth council member Becky Haskin, also added that Hoeppner, a rookie, is a “victim of his own inexperience.”
“I think he panicked,” Haskin said. “He just unloaded his gun in rapid fire. That’s what I heard; it woke me up. I thought it was in my back yard – just rapid fire, one right after the other, in succession.”
“There wasn’t any hesitation.”
She added that although nothing is going to bring Waller back, someone from the police department should apologize to the family.
“It’s an accidental death at the hands of an untrained police officer.”

“Who says money doesn’t talk?”


 F1 Boss Bernie Ecclestone, saluting the Judge as only a very wealthy individual can afford to do.

It’s the new ‘get out of jail’ card, available if you have a spare $100 million. F1 Boss Berni Eccelstone turns around and offers this huge fee for the prosecution case  of bribery against him to be  halted, avoiding a possible 10 year prison sentence! It’s something straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Next time I’m in front of the beak I need to make sure I’ve a handful of fivers in the back pocket- can’t go wrong apparently. New chair of Ofsted, someone with a dedicated career in education, maybe an individual who has been involved in working with young people and played a role in public policy in this arena. No, let’s appoint David Hoare, someone whose CV  included  leading  a number of large companies including DX group, Virgin Express and V Ships and also worked for management consultancy firm, Bain and Company. Just the sort of person who knows about schools, though he has been a trustee of  failing academy chain AET since January. So we know where he thinks the future of education lies.

As for the situation in Gaza enough’s been said……
