Man Tells Police Dispatcher His Mentally Disturbed Brother Is Carrying a Fake Gun, Police Kill Him Anyway

by Mike Riggs

Shortly before 8 a.m. on June 28, police in Broomfield, Colorado, shot and killed Kyle Miller after he brandished a gun at them. Miller was mentally ill. The gun was fake. Miller's younger brother told the police dispatcher both of these facts. For some unknown reason, reports the Denver Post, Broomfield police shot Miller anyway
A 911 call recorded just before Kyle Miller was shot to death by Broomfield police officers last week shows that his family warned dispatchers the 21-year-old was armed with an Airsoft pellet gun -- not a real handgun.

In response, a dispatcher assured the victim's brother, "Officers are trained in this kind of thing. They're not going to go around shooting people."

Broomfield police received a 911 call around 7:20 a.m. June 28 about a "mentally distraught" man in the Aspen Creek subdivision. While officers were en route, they encountered Miller near the intersection of Aspen Street and Durango Avenue. Miller pointed the pellet gun at police and was shot by officers.

The 911 tape shows that Miller's younger brother, Alex Miller, told police about the Airsoft gun in an attempt to avoid a dangerous confrontation.

"My brother is having a breakdown," Alex Miller told the dispatcher, adding that he woke up to his mother's screams because Kyle Miller was trying to cut himself with a pocket knife. Screams can be heard in the background throughout the 911 call.

On the recording, Alex Miller repeatedly said his brother was carrying an Airsoft gun.

"Can you tell them he has a gun in his hands? Is there any way you can let them know he's got the gun in his hands?" Alex Miller said. "It's not real."

"I know," the dispatcher replied. "The officers are trained in this kind of thing. They're not going to go around shooting people."
According to Miller's mother, her son had schizophrenia, and was upset because he had recently been let go from his job. The shooting is under investigation by an "independent" review board affilated with the Broomfield Police Department. In the meantime, the officers involved (BPD won't say how many, or how many shots they fired) are on paid administrative leave.

If only that were true...

81161 THIS is what all your handguns are getting you, not freedom from tyranny .
Frankly, if I was a cop in the US I would assume that any weapon is real .
Because there is a very good chance that it IS real, unlike here in commie-Europe where only real criminals and/or cops have guns ..

Just another example of how free access to handguns does NOT protect you .

97104 "See my brother over there? The one shouting incoherent nonsense and waving that gun around erratically? Well, that gun isn't real.

"Don't worry about it. No danger here.

"Trust me.

"I realize you don't know me from Adam's off ox, but I'm a very trustworthy guy. I promise.

"Trust me."

End result: I wouldn't trust him either, or his brother. Insane guy waving a gun around? If his brother waved that gun in my direction, I'd run like hell, on the presumption that the gun was real.

And when you wave a presumptively real gun at a police officer? So sorry: Sad, but justified.

9877 WOW.....IDIOTS ....

The key word here is TRAINING....
even the dispatcher remembers a time when cops were
honestly doing their jobs, and TRAINED to deal with POTENTIALLY

EVERY American should carry a gun BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT KEEPS

We the people have the right to bear arms so that the thugs, whether in uniform or not, do not take our right to freedom away.

If THE PEOPLE give up their weapons, HITLER will step in and take over.

Once you are unarmed and unable to defend yourself, you become the PREY, the VICTIM, and the SLAVE.

History repeats itself....
You should try studying it, and why our founding fathers made sure we could protect ourselves from governments run amuk.

You have exactly the attitude the establishment has been cultivating for the past few decades. Now THAT's SCARY.

No doubt you're a couch potato who doesn't realize TV is ENTERTAINMENT,
not fact or truth.

173218 Why are you people acting like having guns just gets you murdered? That there is no possible reason to own a gun other than you have watched too much tv and think that you are Rambo? I have been shooting guns, including handguns and high capacity semi automatic rifles, since I was 9 or 10 years old. I have never went out and murdered anyone. I have never ran through the streets brandishing a gun and threatening police. I own many guns, some for self-defense and some for hunting and some that are family heirlooms. This does not make me a "couch potato who doesn't realize TV is ENTERTAINMENT" whatever that even means, this does not mean that I am crazy or bloodthirsty. This just means that I enjoy carrying on the traditions of my family and culture. I am not a violent person nor do I want to do harm to anyone but tell me, who is really more safe from having others' wills imposed upon them? You, the unarmed liberal? Or me? The well armed freedom loving willing to die for what is mine "gun nut couch potato"? 20 or 30 7.62 rounds through the front door is a lot more of a convincing "leave me the hell alone" than a few calls from the ACLU and your cries of injustice from your brand new government provided cage complete with a sink toilet combo, Really, Europeans, where has your lack of weapons gotten you? More cameras than a news studio and less freedom than a convict. You are in no position to talk about the alleged "benefits" of gun control. Ask Chicago, or D.C., or Atlanta, or Los Angeles how their lack of handguns are working out for them.
