York County deputy Terrence Knox pulled over Bobby Canipe for an expired license tag. When Canipe got out of his pickup trick and reached for his cane, officer Knox fired multiple rounds, believing him to be grabbing a long rifle.-Cop Shoots Old Man Reaching For His CaneSo this deputy gets a paid vacation while waiting for the usual verdict of "appropriate response", as in the statement by the Sheriff's spokeman: "It does appear, at this time, that Deputy Knox’s actions were an appropriate response to what he reasonably believed to be an imminent threat to his life." Shot for the made-up "crime" of having an expired tag. All cops and ass kissing cop lovers ("law" enforcement supporters who go around with "support our police" stickers and such) should do peaceful people a favor and just shoot themselves instead.

Costumed Thug Shoots Old Man
Posted by Nick
I thought about my dad when I read about this travesty of justice. My dad is elderly and has a hard time getting around these days, and though he recently began using a walker, before that he always had his cane with him. I can imagine him in this sort of situation, even though I can count on one hand the number of times he's been pulled over by a government clown-costumed thug with a badge driving an evil, decorated clown car with lights and sirens. It last happened a few years ago when an asshole in a uniform stopped him for going 34mph in a 30mph zone. It was a stretch of road where it was very hard to maintain such a slow speed. My dad is a slow driver anyway, he's never been an impatient motorist or a leadfoot, so I know he wasn't driving irresponsibly or endangering anyone. In fact, it was a lazy afternoon and no other cars were even on the that road. Did this POS cop give my dad a break or a warning? No, the asshole wrote him a ticket that he could ill afford to pay on his fixed income. I'm just glad my dad didn't reach for his cane, though I wouldn't have been sorry to see that cop have a cane make hard contact with his skull.
