Cop Shoots, Kills College Student For Speaking Disrespectfully


Recommended Posts

As long as there are police officers like corporal Christopher Carter of the University of the Incarnate Word campus police, there will be cause for alarm that freedom and justice in the United States have seriously eroded.

The San Antonio campus cop was placed on paid administrative leave following the shooting of a clearly unarmed and non-combative student. What was the 23-year-old student’s crime? Robert Cameron Redus was shot dead by officer Carter at 2 a.m. for nothing more than making a sarcastic remark toward the officer who pulled him over for speeding..

According to the police report, local KSAT News explains that witnesses affirmed that the cop literally “emptied his gun” into the student without warning.

“I didn’t hear him say anything like, ‘Get down on your hands and knees,’ you know?” one witness explained, “I didn’t hear him say anything. He just started shooting. He emptied the gun on him… Boom, boom, boom.Six shots — five or six.”

Mohammad Haidarasl also witnessed the murder, saying that Redus’ last words were “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?”

Redus couldn’t believe officer Carter would actually go that far, but Haidarasl added that the cop kept yelling “Stop resisting, stop resisting,” even though it was clear Redus was offering no physical residence, only sarcastic comments.

Haidarasl knew Redus, living right below him. He was “the nicest guy,” Haidarasl said. Other students described him as “kind, intelligent, compassionate and well-loved within the community.” In fact, no one had anything bad to say about him, except for the officer that murdered him in cold blood.

“He was not an aggressive person at all, so the story doesn’t make sense,” one student who wished to remain unnamed said.

Carter has claimed that shortly after he stopped Redus, “a struggle ensued” between himself and the student.

An official statement from the university seemed to support the killer cop, saying that Carter has “an extensive law-enforcement background,” working for “several years” at the school. But the San Antonio Express-News says that he’s only been working there for two-and-a-half years, a relatively short time for any police officer.

In fact, in a short period of time, Carter has come and gone from several law enforcement positions.

What can you do? SPREAD THE WORD! Let people know what kind of POLICE STATE American citizens are facing. Then contact the police department that officer Carter works for and let them know that you DEMAND that he be fired IMMEDIATELY and brought up on criminal charges. Administrative leave will simply not do!

Furthermore, contact the University itself, demand that Carter is fired! This insanity will continue as long as we passively accept it as “the way things are.”

I've been on a vacation for three weeks. In three days I get to back to work and beat the crap out of worthless maggots like you. Then drag their a** down town and throw them in the county jail for no other reason than I felt like it. I can even make up some felony charge to keep them from making bail.

As usual, the initial police bashing story is bs

Campus officer shoots, kills Texas college student after chase

University of the Incarnate Word

Robert Cameron Redus, 23, was set to graduate with honors in May from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas.

By M. Alex Johnson, Staff Writer, NBC News

A Texas campus police officer shot and killed an honors student after a high-speed chase because the student stole his baton and began attacking him with it, the college said Monday.

The student — whom the University of the Incarnate Word referred to Monday as "the suspect" — was identified as Robert Cameron Redus, 23, of Baytown, Texas.

University police Cpl. Chris Carter shot Redus at least three times in the predawn hours Friday morning at an off-campus apartment complex in Alamo Heights, authorities said. Carter was on paid administrative leave Monday pending the investigation.

Redus, who was known as Cameron, was a senior communication arts major on course to graduate with honors in May from the university in San Antonio, which is one of the largest Catholic colleges in the U.S.

He was an anchor for the campus TV station, UIWTV, and one of his newscasts remained on the university's website and on YouTube on Monday.

Fellow students were stunned by the shooting, describing Redus as a friendly guy whom they couldn't believe would be violent.

"He was such a sweet boy, very sweet, very respectful," Terri Mullins, a classmate, told NBC station WOAI of San Antonio at a memorial vigil Saturday. "He always had a smile on his face."

Darlene Jasso, another classmate, told the station she couldn't understand why the officer fired in the first place.

"Why do you have to pull out your gun?" she asked WOAI, adding: "I just feel heartbroken and devastated. I can't believe he's gone."

The university said in a statement Monday that Carter was returning from a break when he saw a driver speeding erratically near the front of the campus. He followed the car to the apartment complex and radioed headquarters for assistance from local police.

Alamo Heights is a incorporated town within the San Antonio city limits with it own police force, and because Carter mistakenly identified his location as being in San Antonio, the call went out to the wrong police department. It was several extra minutes before Alamo Heights police were called and could respond, the university said.

Meanwhile, Redus and Carter were fighting, the university said. Redus managed to get hold of Carter's police baton and started beating on the officer, who drew his gun and fired, it said.

"At no time during the incident did the suspect identify himself and there is no evidence that the officer had any knowledge of his student status or his place of residence," the university said.

Alamo Heights police and the Texas Rangers were in charge of the investigation, which could be complicated because there's no video record of the first fatal police shooting in the school's history.

University squad cars do come equipped with dashboard cams — but "it had fallen off the evening before the incident," the university said, blaming a change in the weather for causing the glue to fail.

The university said it was "deeply upset over the loss of life regardless of the circumstances" and said it was assisting in the investigation.

BTW, the camera was broken but it is being reported the microphone was working and recorded the cop telling the guy to put his hands behind his back 14 times and telling him to stop resisting 56 times. So if those recordings exist. a bunch of eyewitnesses turn out to be some pretty big liars themselves. http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/10/justice/texas-campus-officer-shooting/index.html
