Walmart security guard shoots
´shoplifting´ mother dead in
parking lot as she tries to
escape with two young children

Daily Mail [UK], by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 12/8/2012 3:22:51 PM

A 27-year-old mother of two has been fatally shot by an off-duty sheriff´s deputy after he suspected her of shoplifting at a Houston Walmart. Harris County Sheriff´s deputies have said that victim Shelly Frey, Tisa Andrews and Yolanda Craig were stealing when they were confronted by Louis Campbell a 26-year veteran of the force who works as a security guard at the store. According to Campbell the women ran to their car and when he rushed to open the door, they accelerated away - at which point he fired the deadly shot into the car which hit Frey in the neck.

Comments:
Can´t work up a lot of sympathy for this woman. She was clearly shoplifting, then tried to drive away after the cop opened her car door. She migrated to Houston from New Orleans after Katrina.

The poor cop will probably lose his job, though.

A brave officer, no doubt, or maybe just panicky and dumb as a boot.

The family is probably already working on an excessive force and wrongful death suit.

Remember the pharmacist who got jail time for shooting a robber too many times.Meanwhile the football player who shot his GF 9 times is praised for thanking his coaches for a chance.The players mother who watched the shooting and didn´t intervene is now getting the baby´s upkeep allotment for years to come.

Will not judge yet, but the media are largely inaccurate on this sort of thing, and often intentionally.

They lied about George Zimmerman, and they are probably have at LEAST partial information here. Typically when someone in a car is shot by an officer, it is because they are trying to run him down.

Notice no comments from the officer. Always two sides to a story.

#4, has it already been settled that Mr. Belcher´s mother will raise that baby. I am sure a battle will take place about that and if the team had any brains, they would stipulate that whatever family that gets her is put on a tight money diet so they don´t drain her account.

Our country is experiencing an evil quakening where people are doing stupid horrific things to eachother. It´s too easy to blame this on the effects of being an obama voter. I prefer to know what is it and be prepared for it.

Greenspoint area is known by locals as "Gunspoint". Bad, bad part of Houston, right by the airport and full of innocent marks and newly arrived foreigners.

It´s a ´no win´ area for cops.

Another version has the guard inside the open car door trying to have her stop and get out of the car, then the driver puts the car in reverse trying to escape but which could have killed the guard by trapping him under the car.

This makes sense, and if true, the perp got her just reward.

She tried to run over the deputy sheriff, who id´ himself as a Harris County Deputy Sheriff, he was wearing the uniform. She chose to steal, she chose to try and run him over by catching him with an open door of her vehicle. No she didn´t have to die but then she made the choice to be stupid. Instead of stopping and dealing with her actions, she decided to attempt to kill the officer to get away.

This Walmart visit after she appeared in Court earlier in the day and her plea bargain was never to enter another Walmart location. Her word didn´t last very long before she broke her commitment.

Not destitute women but professional thieves, who took children with them while they committed their crimes. The ´security guard´ was a trained Harris County deputy and was clearly identifiable as an officer of the law. The victim took her chances and this time lost the gamble. If she would have adhered to her earlier sworn promise, this never would have occurred - "Earlier in the year she pleaded guilty to stealing shirts and a package of meat from another Walmart and as part of her plea arrangement she agreed to never enter Walmart stores again".

Well, it appears that at the time of the shooting, the dead woman was using the car as a deadly weapon. Dummy.

When will people learn it is illegal to steal? They just keep getting away with it.

And one of the comments is very correct. Those children in the car will never forget it. Hopefully, they have learned a lesson.

A car is a deadly weapon,under some circumstances.
In addition, I have read that Walmart´s policy on shoplifting is to just let them go... apparently the deputy sheriff didn´t get the message.
(Why would he be wearing his official uniform when he was apparently working for Walmart??)

If this is a bad part of town, sometimes the owners of the shopping center (not Walmart) hire security for the site.

Near me, in what used to be a nicer part of ATL is now minority. A T J Maxx, etc, shopping area now had a need for security around the entire shopping area.

Whether or not the shooting was justified depends a lot on the exact sequence of events, who was where, and what they were doing.

As to the kids in the car ... we´re using human shields now at Walmart?

Article didn´t indicate the kids were in the store with the women. If not, the guard probably didn´t know there were kids in the car. The women, commiting crimes, put the children in harms way.

This wasn´t a ´mother´ as the Daily Mail oozes, this was a hardened criminal thief. The guard did the kids a favor, allowing them a chance to be raised by someone with noncriminal values instead of the monster that was supposedly their mother. The guard said he was endangered by her actions and his story seems to stand up. If the guard comes before me as a jurist, I´m letting him off with a full acquittal.

Years ago, I caught a woman putting her hand in my pocket in a shopping mall. She and the young child with her ran off, and I checked my wallet, only to find she had snagged some credit cards.

I called the police, and after waiting about an hour for one to show up, he told me there was nothing he could do, even if he could find the woman. She would have handed off the stolen cards to the child, who would have been instructed to put them in her underpants. The officers, under the law, could only arrest the woman if she had the stolen cards. They could not search the child. That´s one reason why thieves often have kids with them.

I won´t comment on this story until I know more. But as a thief was quoted in our local paper last week, "it´s the Christmas season. I need gifts and money."

If lawmakers in Springfield thought they maneuvered beyond the treacherous topic of pension reform with their December votes to begin rescuing the state´s floundering pension system, they thought wrong. Chicago, with its enormously underfunded pension plans, is next in line. Three years into his mayoral term — after campaigning on a promise to fix pensions — Rahm Emanuel finally is ready to file legislation that would reduce the city´s dangerously unfunded pension liabilities for municipal workers and laborers. Emanuel says he has a deal with those employees´ unions that would bring two of the city´s four funds for retirees closer

Denver - Denver is submitting its bid today to host the Republican National Convention in 2016. Denver hosted the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and the first presidential debate during the 2012 race. Colorado Republican party chairman Ryan Call told 7NEWS Friday that the key downtown venues were at the center of a plan to bring the 2016 RNC to Denver. Call says under the proposal, the Pepsi Center will serve as the principal event site -- hosting key speeches and the nominating process.

Election Day is almost nine months off. But right now Republicans seem almost certain to hold the House of Representatives and are likely to take the Senate. Which raises the inevitable question: How might the GOP seize defeat from the jaws of victory? Two occasions stand out, two obvious obstacles ahead that could lead to disastrous Republican stumbles, two pitfalls on the path to a happy GOP Election Day. Republicans are pretty good at falling into such pits. One is the increase in the debt limit, which Congress will have to deal with in the next month or two. The other

Why the ‘Duck Dynasty’

The left thinks everyone who opposes gay marriage is some bigot like Phil Robertson. That intolerance could come back to sting Democrats in November. Until very recently I had no idea who or what Duck Dynasty was. But now I, along with the rest of the English-speaking world, know far more about Duck Dynasty than I care to. But I am preparing myself for the reality that I will be hearing those two words endlessly over the course of the next year. Because unlike many media scandals that come and go after a 24 hour news cycle, I believe the Duck Dynasty controversy will have legs. Not only will the controversy linger, it might reignite the culture war that has traditionally hurt Democrats, especially

Amendment 66, education tax has failed
The Denver Channel (7 News), by staff    Original Article
Posted By: zephyrgirl- 11/5/2013 10:20:30 PM     Post Reply
DENVER - Amendment 66, the K-12 education funding measure, has failed in Colorado. Even in Democratic strongholds of Boulder and Denver counties, the measure was failing or barely even. Amendment 66 constitutionally and statutorily would alter Colorado law to change how the state funds education. Firstly, it raises the state individual income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income. That is equivalent to $472.5 if you earn exactly $75,000 in taxable income per year. If you earn more, any income beyond the $75,000 is taxed at a rate of 5.9 percent.

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
