Both of the following videos are extraordinary and appalling. They record an A.D. 2010 shooting of Jeff Weinhaus by FBI and police officers.
First, the video is appalling in that law enforcement lured Weinhaus to a meeting and then tried to murder him for no apparent reason other than willful failure to kiss ass.
Second, it’s appalling that if government shoots a black man, all hell breaks loose, but when government shoots a white man, nobody seems to care.
Third, it’s appalling that this video was posted on February 14th, A.D. 2016, and, so far (after nearly two months on YouTube), it’s reportedly received only 36,063 views. Maybe that’s because the shooting took place almost six years ago. Still, this video should go viral. Public indifference to this shooting is scarier than the shooting itself.
One of the best things you can do to prevent future murders or attempted murders by government thugs is to send a link to this video to everyone on your email list. If we can make the video go viral, we can slow the government down. If we ignore the video and don’t “push it” to others, our indifference will encourage government to shoot even more Americans.
If you don’t care enough to protest when others get shot, don’t expect others to protest when you get shot.
Here’ another, even more astonishing video recorded by Weinhaus that starts on his way to the meeting with the police and FBI. It includes the shooting and immediate aftermath. He starts out looking for someone (especially a minister) to go with him to the meeting–without success. He’s praying for God’s protection and it’s arguable that his prayer was answered in that he was shot several times with 40 caliber bullets at close range, but didn’t die.
It’s also something of a miracle that he survived the “medical attention” he received after the shooting and while they were apparently waiting for a care-flight helicopter to arrive.
More, it may be that God’s plan had something to do with the recording of this video and then allowing it to be seen by the public. How this video ever reached the public is, for the moment, beyond my comprehension.
