Police Shoot Man Assembling Toy Gun While Sitting In His Own Car

Chris | InformationLiberation


From the Yakima Herald:
Department spokesman Capt. Rod Light said Casey Gilette, 29, was on a routine patrol about 3 a.m. when he noticed a vehicle had been parked at Classic Auto Wash, 907 E. Nob Hill Blvd., for more than an hour. Light said that based on a preliminary investigation, Gilette approached the vehicle and opened the passenger-side door. He saw a man in the driver’s seat with what appeared to be a handgun and his finger on the trigger. He then fired, Light said.

“Once investigators got on the scene, it was later determined that the handgun was a replica of an actual firearm,” Light said. “It’s what I would refer to as an Airsoft gun, but they appear very real.”

Airsoft is a trademark name for replica firearms that fire plastic pellets. They are designed to be nonlethal and often come in realistic replicas. Such devices typically have an orange tip at the end of the barrel intended to indicate it is not a real firearm.

“I believe this particular handgun had an orange tip. But based on our investigation I don’t want to go into particulars and details of the position of the gun and where the officer was. It was 3 a.m., it was dark and again we haven’t interviewed this officer yet and we don’t want to speculate,” Light said.

Gilette had another person with him while on patrol, Chief Dominic Rizzi Jr. said Monday afternoon.

“Yes, he did have a ride-along with him, and there’s nothing inappropriate about that,” said Rizzi, who declined to identify the person.

Police have yet to interview Gilette. Under the police union contract with the city, an officer involved in a shooting is not required to give a statement until 48 hours after the incident, although officers may waive that waiting period if they choose to.

Although the investigation is in the preliminary stages, Rizzi said Monday morning that he believes that Gilette acted appropriately.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, I absolutely stand behind the officer and his actions in the shooting that occurred,” Rizzi said.

Light said the investigators believe that Arias was attempting to assemble pieces of the pellet gun, because they found discarded packaging for accessories in the vehicle.
Having a real gun in Washington is not a crime, nor is it grounds for summary execution. This was a toy gun, which the man was said to be assembling within his own car. The officer approached him, opened his door, then executed him. No doubt he'll claim "self-defense" and say he "feared for his life."

17454 Opening the car door is a violation of this man's rights. Hopefully the family will sue for a couple million.

17355 Summary execution sums it up well. Police are being "knighted" via FPO/FFO malingering every cop that does this knowing full well they are backed to kill whom ever they like w/o accountability to the victim. Mirrors Inquisition. It's a mistake to let him get away w/this, but people are in some kind of a ha-ha-hapee-ness stupor and just are NOT getting the big picture, my opinion.

162243 The fact that someone removes comments no matter what they are is unamerican. Do not suppress or you are part of the problem.

The comment explicitly violated our policy on calling for people to be killed.

7521 I wonder, when the cops high-five these incidents on their officer.com, or the "authorities" find them "fully justified", isn't that the same "calling for people to be killed" next time?

In the countries where denying Holocaust is a crime, the justification is that diminishing the scope of the killings is equivalent to calling to kill more. Maybe someone should apply this logic to Chif Rizzi.

Our policy on this website doesn't effect what someone can say anywhere else. As owners of this site, we can only regulate what's said on this site, just as owners of a restaurant can only regulate what goes on in their own restaurant. A private business owner's policies are not mandates from the state enforced under threats of imprisonment or death, the two are completely different and confusing the two does a disservice.

If said poster wants to post threats on other sites, he can. He can also email it to the person he's threatening if that's his prerogative. We're simply saying he cannot use our site to do it, just as a gun shop owner can deny to sell someone a gun if they think they're suicidal, or a pharmacy can deny to sell someone birth control because it's against their religious beliefs, these are issues of personal freedom, and it's antithetical to human freedom and 'unAmerican' to forbid them from using their property as they see fit and instead have the government force them to provide services to people they don't wish to against their will. A website's personal comment policy has absolutely nothing to do with a government's legal mandates which are enforced through the barrel of a gun.

The funny thing too about the difference between state laws and organizations' personal policies is the state loves confusing the two and acting like they're one in the same. A pharmacy denying birth control to someone is "violating their rights," meanwhile denying that person the right to do what they please with their own property, forcing them into a position of forced servitude is "upholding the rights of the people."

17444 That's bull Chris I was merely speculating what I thought the Justice should be for this man being killed. On the article "Cops use pepper spray to shut down protests over man who shot himself while being handcuffed" there is a comment calling for someone being killed and its not removed.

I felt your comments, of which there were two, crossed the line and were almost federal-agent style provocateuring.
