A Houston police officer who previously killed in a justified situation, killed a double-amputee in a wheelchair allegedly because he felt threatened by the one arm, one leg wheelchair-bound man - HPD officer shoots, kills wheelchair-bound man at group home for the mentally ill | abc13.com The FBI has now joined this case to "help investigate" why the double-amputee with a ballpoint pen in hand was such a threat to the Houston police officers that the shooting officer decided killing the maimed was only recourse. (Sigh) I am threatened by the smoke of cigarettes and tobacco and by the sight of escargot. Should I then kill smokers or kill persons in restaurant serving escargot? Felt threatened! A law enforcement officer who cannot escape a wheelchair-bound or overpower a double-amputee probably has no business being in the police force. Felt threatened. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
