I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
New Mexico Cop Threatened to Shoot ‘F*cking Lunatic’ in the Penis 2 Hours Before Killing Him:
In March, Albuquerque police shot and killed a homeless man who had been illegally camping in an incident that was caught on tape and led to a storm of controversy over the decision to open fire.
Now, months later, a newly released video reveals that Officer Keith Sandy had, two hours earlier, talked about shooting 38-year-old James Boyd in the penis and dismissively referred to him as a ‘lunatic.’
Friends said the mentally ill Boyd had decided to camp out in the foothills above the city after homeless shelters had closed, and police negotiated with him for about five hours before fatally shooting him in the back.
My Commentary: Remember James Boyd? He was the homeless man who was confronted, shot and murdered by police in New Mexico for the victimless crime of “illegally camping” in the sprawling wilderness of the “federally-owned” Sandia foothills.
Cops Murder Man for Victimless “Crime” of “Illegally Camping”:
As it turns out, his murderer was recorded bragging about his intent to assault and kill his victim two hours prior to committing his crime…
But, of course, as an agent of the State, he faces no first degree murder charges… nor will he likely ever!
