A man in Hollywood was shot and killed by police yesterday following a bizarre series of events. Based on what we know so far, the only logical (if you can call it that) conclusion is that the man was trying to make a political statement about police shootings but got himself killed instead.
Officers were en route to a radio call with their lights and sirens on when a car pulled in front of them, stopped suddenly and backed into the patrol car, police officials said. He then emerged from the car with his hands hidden behind his back and started counting down in a threatening manner. When he got to “one,” he quickly pulled his right hand from behind his back and was shot by the officers.
These facts alone would make one believe he was trying to commit “suicide by cop.” He was unarmed, so the act of counting down and then quickly point his hand at the cops would indicate intent to get shot. But here’s the kicker. He was wearing body armor. This tells us he wanted to get shot but did not want to get killed. Unfortunately for him, the cops were better shots than he expected, the bullets were more powerful than he thought, or his body armor wasn’t very good.
According to Fox11:
Los Angeles Police Department officers fatally shot a man wearing body armor who drove into their patrol car in Hollywood on Saturday. Officers responded to the area of Sunset Blvd. and North Fairfax Ave. around 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
A dispatcher in the LAPD’s Operations Center confirmed the shooting was fatal. Officers were en route to a radio call with their lights and sirens on when a car pulled in front of them, stopped suddenly and backed into the patrol car, police officials said.
The driver of the car got out and was observed wearing body armor as he moved toward the officers, who had exited their car, police said. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sunset Boulevard was shut down in the area while Force Investigation Division detectives conducted interviews and collected evidence. The investigation will continue throughout the night. Authorities urged to stay away from the area. Police say this is the department’s second shooting in two days.
If he wanted to get shot but didn’t want to die, it seems to point to his intention of making a political statement. Suicidal people don’t wear body armor when trying to get shot. The only other viable explanation is that he was simply insane since he was clearly starting a fight with police with the intention of them shooting him.
Tensions have been high for over a year as police are faced with constant scrutiny over their actions, particular the use of deadly force. But there are no protests planned to call out police for this incident; the deceased suspect was a White male whose car was covered with Biblical references. He doesn’t fit the profile to qualify for radical leftist protests.
As political statements go, this may be one of the worst executed and most futile attempts ever made. If it’s determined he was trying to make a point, we have an early frontrunner for a Darwin Award.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
