Man shot by Mesa police was unarmed

A 38-year-old man who was shot by Mesa police Thursday had threatened to kill them, but was not armed when he was shot.
Police originally said Thursday that Phillip A. Trimble was shot by three officers when he dropped a cellphone and pointed a gun at them.
But after further investigation, homicide detectives discovered Trimble had only simulated a weapon, acting as if he was grabbing a handgun tucked in his waistband before officers opened fire.
"It appears that he just simulated the weapon with his hand," said Detective Steve Berry, a police spokesman.
"He made the statement,'I've got a .357 magnum, I'm going to shoot you guys," Berry said. "That why we had such a heightened response, because he made threats at officers."
Berry said officers discovered Trimble was not armed when the Maricopa County Medical Examiners Office arrived on the scene and moved the body.
The shooting occurred at 2:36 p.m. Thursday after police had convinced Trimble to step outside his home in the 9000 block of East Glade Avenue, near Southern Avenue and Ellworth Road.
Berry said Trimble had appeared unstable during a series of phone calls he made to police, starting at 1:13 p.m. He initially reported a robbery.
Berry said police found evidence that Trimble had been drinking prior to the shooting.
Officers wanted to help Trimble and only shot him when they perceived a threat to their own lives, he said.
"The ultimate goal is to help, not to hurt," Berry said. Police will review the case to see if there were other tactics that could have been used.
He said officers were too far away from Trimble to have used a Taser to subdue him.
Court records show Trimble had no prior history of violent acts. He had been sentenced a year ago in Maricopa County Superior Court to four months in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but the sentence was suspended and he was placed on probation for two years.

The police- Hey you guy's, it's fucking hot out here, I got an idea, we've been working hard and we deserve a paid leave.Let's shoot some dumb slob, lie about how it happened and get a paid leave at the stupid fucking taxpayers expense. We'll go fishing, kick back, drink some beer and have a good time. Fuck this dead prick, he was a nothing anyway. Don't you just love the cops? J.W. Simms.

TONOPAH - A man who was screaming and brandishing a knife has been shot and killed by officers.

It happened Friday night near 359th Ave and McDowell.

Sheriff's deputies called for backup from the Department of Public Safety about the armed man in the roadway. "Officers were forced to fire upon him when he ignored commands".

No one else was hurt.

There will be a full cover up after the investigation. J.W. Simms.

Recent footage released on the Internet shows US police officers violently arresting a man shopping with his grandson at a Wal-Mart store in the US state of Arizona on Black Friday.

Jerald Newman, 54, was attacked and knocked to the floor face-first by police officers who suspected him of shoplifting during the day-after Thanksgiving sales, Russia Today reported.

According to Newman, he attempted to lift his grandson on to his shoulders in order to avoid the violent mob of shoppers. He tried freeing his hand by placing a video game into his waistband, when police officers threw him to the ground.

The footage shows Newman being arrested on the ground, while a pool of blood begins to form under his face.

This comes after the violent arrest of several anti-Wall Street protesters and activists occupying Wal-Mart, earlier on Friday.

Demonstrators had planned to occupy various retailers around the country on Black Friday in protest against profit-making banks and corporations on the traditional beginning of the Yule purchasing frenzy.

Wal-Mart, the world's largest corporation, reported profits of over USD 14 billion last year, while reducing company contributions to employee health savings accounts by 50 percent, and increasing healthcare premiums from 17 percent to more than 60 percent.

The supergiant store employs more than 2.1 million people; the average Wal-Mart worker makes USD 8.81 per hour, while the CEO makes USD 8990.00 per hour.

The Walton family --the largest Wal-Mart shareholders who are descendants of its founder -- is the wealthiest family in the US with an estimated net worth of USD 92 billion - greater than 40 percent of the least wealthy Americans combined.

There you have it. The video "shows Newman being arrested on the ground". As usual the video starts when the aggresive arrest actions are already underway. The video does not show what caused those actions. Such as any form of resisting arrest in a crowded place. The offender needs to be subdued immediately so the situation does not get out of control. The cops don't know at this point if he is armed, or what his mental state is. In this case they did their job, did it fast, and as usually happens no one else was hurt. Bravo! As far as I'm concerned he should have been charged for bleeding on the floor. The nerve of this guy.

Or are they just showing the cops side of the story? Should be interesting. Stay tuned for all updates and see if the cops pay this guy off or he gets pink shorts.

Why,,,bit of a selective copy and paster aren't you? I hope you are getting permission to use these copyrighted stories. Hate to see you get sued or something. Might make someone a millionaire.
Another question for you comes to mind though. Did some cop at some point and time in your life smack you around a bit? Or are you just wining over some deserved traffic ticket?
