Cop Who Shot 13-Year-Old ID'ed As Iraq War Vet, Advocated Combat View Of Law Enforcement


From Police State USA:

The officer who shot Andy Lopez has been revealed to be 48-year-old Sonoma County Deputy Erick Gelhaus, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Gelhaus is a 24-year veteran of the department, an Iraq combat veteran, a firearms instructor, and a prolific writer and commenter on the internet.   He served in the Army National Guard from 2004 to 2010, and testified about dealing with insurgents in Iraq.  He advocates an aggressive, combat-like view of law enforcement.

He participates as a moderator on The Firing Line, an online forum for gun enthusiasts hosted by S.W.A.T. Magazine. There Gelhaus uses his real name and gives his opinions about a wide variety of law enforcement topics, touting his experience in combat.
He wrote for S.W.A.T. in 2008 that among the things he tells his trainees early on is that “Today is the day you may need to kill someone in order to go home.”

“If you cannot turn on the ‘Mean Gene’ for yourself, who will?” he wrote. “If you find yourself in an ambush, in the kill zone, you need to turn on that mean gene.”
Gelhaus writes that he is able to survive the “kill zone” by thinking of his family.  He summons his “mean genes” in order to make the split-second decisions while dealing with insurgents — in this case, children in residential California.

The deputy describes the job as his “calling” and loves participating in the “contact sport” of law enforcing.

He’s given verbose details about how to react in self-defense situations (using that term loosely here).  Prior to the killing of Andy Lopez, Gelhaus wrote about how to handle the aftermath of killing a person with a BB-gun.  The Press Democrat reported:
In one revealing thread, forum members debated whether the use of force is justified if someone brandishes or fires a BB gun at another person.

Gelhaus chimed in, writing that “It’s going to come down to YOUR ability to articulate to law enforcement and very likely the Court that you were in fear of death or serious bodily injury.”

“I think we keep coming back to this, articulation — your ability to explain why — will be quite significant,” Gelhaus wrote.
Gelhaus clearly knows the drill.  When shooting another person, no matter what the situation, one must convincingly articulate how much fear was felt during the time in the kill zone.  Whether those fears were honest and reasonable is anybody’s guess.

Let’s be clear:  There are situations when a person holding a toy gun could be viewed to be a deadly threat.  If an individual on the street actually points a perceived weapon at someone else, self-defense could be warranted by any reasonable standard.  The situation becomes very volatile when cops are paid to get confrontational with people who have literally done nothing except walk down the street with an item that scares them.  The innocent blood lies on the hands of the gun controllers and the enforcers who perpetuate gun control.

99158 Any one who has served in the military should not be allowed to be a cop. A cops job is to protect and keep the peace. The military's job is to kill people and blow things up, two very different jobs and philosophies. This murderer should be put on trial for murdering a child.

Both police and soldiers work for the government both carry firearms, both shoot and kill people. The only difference amongst the two is, cops control the conquered people state-side, while soldiers are sent overseas to do more conquering. The philosophy is the same: conquer, control, divide. (You might pay particularly close attention to their last objective, the "divide." This is where their power is derived from).

99158 L.S. maybe you are too young to recall what I am talking about, although in the past here and there you would find an ass as a cop, they were the exception. They did not get away with what they do now. Allowing the military to interact with cops and allowing combat vets to be cops has gone a long way to getting us where we are now. Now cops view themselves as the military, not good.

@John C. I don't disagree with what you've written, however..... if you were to come home from our government's ceaseless "war on freedom," lacking a college education, but, having a family to provide for, what kind of employment would you seek out?

75164 I think Gelhause's rational for what he does is not conducive to the job he performs while amongst Americans who are not in a war torn country. His fucking mindset is way off the richtor scale and needs to be adjusted along with the other morons of this bullshit mindset. This country is not at war with each other nor are we civilians, we are godamn Americans, and we are not their fucking enemy and beleive me our worthless drunk on power peole we allow to make decisions on our behalf better get their shit straight or soon enough we Americans will give those wanna be warrioirs a run for their fucking money. Chicken shit bastards.

6687 Cops and soldiers of the State and the Federal State are both mindless robots and order-takers who are paid with extorted funds from a communized "public".

Neither are legitimate, as they are both receivers of extorted funds.

Same with Public School teachers, et al.

Postal employees come close to being legitimate, since their fee of postage paid is only by those who actually voluntarily buy stamps. Except that the US State declares a monopoly on 13 ounce or less by demanding any competition charge at least double the US Postal Rate for 13 ounce or less postal fees.

Otherwise, these are criminal occupations, unless they are paid voluntarily, on a fee-for-service basis, just like any legitimate service within humanity.

24222 The police have become enforcers for corporations. Corporations are writing the laws and they are not regulating themselves. North America has had fracking forced down our throats and the police are the army they use the do it. The police are the army that breaks up protests. Judging by the vehicles and training and toys they have, i see no difference between cops and army. Except that the army isn't killing our own people all the time.

The way to deal with police officers in a police state such as the United States of America, is to encounter them, covertly, when one has the advantage, when they are alone, open a large can of Medieval, and get busy!
