There is another Darwin Award winner. His name is Antonio Martin. He was killed in Berkley Missouri, very near Ferguson.
Why is he a Darwin Award winner?
Because he pulled a gun on a police officer. In the pantheon of really stupid ideas, that one is pretty near the top. The cop fired in self defense and a thug died.
An officer with the Berkeley, Mo., Police Department shot and killed an armed, black teenager in apparent self-defense Tuesday night, according to St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman.
Making matters more tense, Berkeley is close to Ferguson where black teen Michael Brown was shot during an altercation with former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson.
The teen involved in Tuesday’s shooting was identified by his mother, Toni Martin, as Antonio Martin, 18.
According to the officer’s report, the incident occurred during a routine check at a Mobil gas station.
When the officer approached the vehicle, Martin pulled out a gun and pointed it at the officer. That’s when the policeman fired at the teen several times, killing him.
A second man who was with the teen ran from the scene.
Martin was on his way to see his girlfriend, his mother told KMOV.
She said her son had been expelled from school but was working on getting his life back together and she was encouraging him to join Job Corps, KMOV reported.
He was expelled from school. No one has come up with it yet, but it is a safe bet he has a criminal record.
The usual suspect began rioting immediately. For America, things are getting so bad that Obama no longer needs to stoke the flames of racial hatred.
Fortunately for this officer there was a near by surveillance video system that backs his story and a 9 MM pistol was recovered from the dead thug.
Until we get rid of the Obama Regime and replace it with a conservative Presidency, this is only going to get worse.
Hold on to your hats. The next two years are going to be rough.
