Police: Deputy Shoots At Disabled Man Waving Gun Made Of Legos

CBS Seattle

COTTAGE LAKE, Wash. (CBS Seattle) – A Kings County Sheriff’s deputy has been put on administrative leave after being accused of shooting at a developmentally disabled man who was holding a toy gun.

The Seattle Times reports police got multiple calls about a man waving a gun at passing vehicles.

“The first deputy arrived minutes later and the man ignored her commands. When the man pulled the handgun from his waistband and raised it, the deputy fired about 25 yards away,” Deputy Charlie Akers told the paper. “The man dropped to the ground and other deputies moved in to handcuff him.”

That’s when authorities discovered that the gun was a Lego toy.

“While on the ground, he made a movement to grab the gun and they just jumped on him. At that point, they slid the gun away from him and discovered it was made out of Legos,” Akers told The Seattle Times.

The man, who police have had encounters with before, is a resident at a nearby group home and “has a fascination with guns.”

An employee of the home told police they have a strict policy for its employees “not to go hands-on with potentially dangerous residents.”

According to the paper, the man was taken into custody and involuntarily committed for a mental-health evaluation.

“Because of his mental capacity, my guess is he will not be charged with anything.” Akers told the paper. “Obviously it could have been a lot worse but fortunately he wasn’t hurt.”

King County authorities tell CBS Seattle that the incident is still under investigation.

    DFC means Dumb F#@king Cop as well as a reference to MSM’s “news babes”

    Maybe King County’s “Don’t go hands on” policy needs to change ! What’s this, something like the umpteenth disabled person that the damn cops felt they just had to ventilate? Sick f#@king system we’ve got, I can tell you that!

    Actually, I don’t have a problem with this one. The person was waving what looked like a gun and wouldn’t drop it when told to. The cop shot to miss. It seems like she should get a commendation for actually thinking on the job.

    I just don’t get it.
    “The person was waving what looked like a gun and wouldn’t drop it when told to”
    If you can’t tell the difference between Lego and a gun at 25 yards you are either blind or too stupid to be carrying a gun.
    The real problem is that the DFCs are really scared, they know that there is a day of reckoning coming for their (and / or their colleagues) behaviour.
    There are no good cops. Any self-respecting person would disassociate themselves from the police force. This is not something new, Frank Serpico, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Serpico ), went down in 1971. Nothing has changed, except the judiciary is now more firmly on the DFC side.

    “The cop shot to miss.”

    Do you have any source for this comment or are you just making an assumption?.
    Most shooters could not hit a barn from 25 yards when under any kind of stress.
    There was a shootout (two sets of protagonists and the police) in Detroit some years ago, 165 cartridges recovered, 1 hit, and that was a ricochet.

    So …
    Deputy Dog, shot at a guy with a gun .. and missed – and yet ..
    “The man dropped to the ground and other deputies moved in to handcuff him.”

    So, guessing, the shock wave from the discharged gun, caused the man to “drop[ped] to the ground.

    But the other deputies, brimming with blue line bravado, courageously cuffed the shooter after a shock wave from the officer who shot “at” the man.

    Is that a warning shot thingie? A new shoot to miss strategy that municipal learned in a DHS seminar? Our local police work for us, not the DHS.

    “Because of his mental capacity, my guess is he will not be charged with anything.” Akers told the paper. “Obviously it could have been a lot worse but fortunately he wasn’t hurt.”

    Akers, methinks, has fed one too many mohels.

    Did not follow link, where the the bullet land? Did the next edition of the yellow sheet have a report about “a 3 yr old was found with a bullet in her head”?

    Shouldn’t shoot when in stress. If it is life and death situation, shock will cause a trans like, and very relaxed state.

    WA cops gone wild. Didn’t one `o Seattle’s finest recently shoot a deaf wood wood carver in the back?

    Maybe these WA cops are part of that demographic that fears box cutters so much they’d prefer to be vaporized in a ball of fire to being scratched by a box cutter and live? Never met Americans like that. Heard `bout them from the TV face guy – never knew one. Tetnus shots too traumatic – so they avoid the box cutter threat behind door number 1 and slect the fireball behind door number 2? Is that it. Stuff just don’t make no sense anymore.
    The stats are out. Our new ZOG Trained Stazi are given AL KADA a run for the money. It is 8 times more likely that American will die from an attack by a policeman than a terrorist.

    Now thats “real hope and change you can believe in”.

    Our political employees have gone over the rainbow. Do they really think they’re going to get off the hook for this sh!t!

    To the K-Street Kiddie Brothel Johnnies, in our employ, caked in CSPAN makeup sharting glittering generalities like the been eating green weenies, we salute you ..
