A father and his young daughter claim they were terrorized by a highway patrolman in Arizona while they were en route to the Grand Canyon on Friday.
Ken Walton, who is from California, described the horrifying ordeal in a lengthy Facebook post where he and his 7-year-old daughter were held at gunpoint after being pulled over by the out-of-control highway patrolman.
“Tonight, I was arrested at gunpoint by an Arizona highway patrol officer who threatened to shot me in the back (twice) in front of my 7-year-old daughter. For a moment, I was certain he was going to kill me for no reason,” he wrote.
Walton had been making his way to the Grand Canyon in a rented car when he was pulled over by the Arizona Highway Patrol who had been tailing him for a few miles.
“I hadn’t been speeding so I wondered if perhaps the car had a broken taillight or something. I rolled down my window and waited,” he said.
Rather than approach the driver’s side, the officer instead “rapped on the rear passenger side window with his pistol.”
His daughter who was “sitting inches from the barrel of his gun, jumped with fear as the officer yelled at me to roll down the front passenger window, his service weapon pointed directly at me.”
While the police officer continued to shout orders, the young passenger panicked and attempted to get out of her booster seat to roll down the front window. It was at this point that the agitated officer screamed at her and pointed his gun at her.
Walton said he then exited the car he assumed the position to be arrested at gunpoint.
“Then, as I had my hands in the air, he yelled, at the top of his lungs in a voice I will never forget, as my daughter looked on in terror, ‘Get your hands away from your waist or I’ll blow two holes through your back right now!”
The father said he was “utterly terrified,” at this stage. “I’ve heard stories of police yelling out false things like this before they unjustifiably attack someone as a way to justify the attack and I thought this was what was happening to me. I braced for bullets to hit me and all I could think of was my daughter having to watch it happen and being left alone on the side of the highway with an insane, violent cop.”
After being arrested, he was placed in the back of the police car and Walton then confronted the officer for threatening to kill him. He also got the patrolman’s name – Oton Villegas – and his badge number.
“He stood by his story that I had made a threatening movement toward my waist, and I said it wasn’t true, and he said this wasn’t the place to discuss it. He let me go attend to my daughter but continued to ‘detain’ us for another 20 minutes as he talked to his supervisors, presumably plotting damage control.”
The dad is now deciding on if he will take legal action, but added that his daughter was “thoroughly traumatized by the event.”
In March, a police officer was charged with second-degree murder after shooting dead an unarmed 26-year-old man in Arizona.
Body camera footage of the incident, which took place in January, confirmed the victim, Daniel Shaver, pleading with the officer not to shoot him as he crawled along the hallway outside his room at the La Quinta Inn in Mesa.

“Insane & Violent”.
I think they have to check “yes” on the warrior hero job application nowadays.
Just to even be considered in the job pool.
If not for these mercenaries, the nobility class could do nothing.
True words moose!
No truer words ever spoken.
“Terrorism is politically motivated violence against innocents and non-combatants. The police are the primary means every government on Earth exists another day. Absent their intimidation and violence, no one would comply.”
” Cops are state thuggery in the flesh and the pointy messy end of all government regulations and programs.”
In the Manosphere they call these guys White Knights. If they get it in their head that another man is somehow the bad guy, they believe they have absolutely ever right to kill him on the spot. I have had my fair share of run ins with these want-to-be heroes. They seem to be coming out of the video game world into the real one and they can’t tell the difference. They truly are out of control and very dangerous.
Screw those fruitcakes, the beautiful girl has now been permanently scarred for life. She’ll never forget that. She’ll wake with nightmares of this. And how needllessly demoralizing to her dad.
New World storm troopers are pussies. Not real men. Faggots with insecurity complexes and self delusion.
and most likely on anti-depressants or anti-psychotic drugs. When the SHTF watch out one our of ten of all people are on them including cops and a blood bath is coming as the sheeple and the cops collide.

It’s obscene that the dirty pig put the little girl through that trauma with her dad. But at least she’ll grow up knowing who the enemy is.
Don’t put up with it. Carry a gun at all times. Shoot scum, whether they are street corner homicidal maniacs, or neo-nazi, homicidal, law enforcement maniacs. You have an absolute RIGHT to defend yourself against excessive force. Not all PD’s have yearly mental health evaluations. The dirt bag could be a loose cannon, who is mentally ill, or high on drugs.
Well at least his TV-induced perception of cops is more in tune with reality now.
This doesn’t surprise me because I expect them to be nuts.
…and they want to take away our means of self-protection and self-preservation…
If everyone carried, we would not have this problem.
Switzerland is sounding a lot better at this point in time.
Looks like two more citizens have been woken up to the reality of the the bullshit of hero cops. I bet they now realize that cops are nothing more then uniformed thugs with a badge, gun and uniform. Lucky for the dad he wasn’t murdered and his young daughter raped.
Did I miss seeing the original reason or excuse of the cop for tailing this guy for several miles and then deciding to pull him over?
It seems fairly obvious that either this cop was a pathologically and mentally insane, dangerous psychopath or that he was on some kind of anti-psychotic or some other drug that had side effects that resulted in an enormous increase in paranoia and mental instability. Or, perhaps a combination of both of those probabilities.
I also noticed that the father and his little girl were both White. There are far too many dimwits in the White community who are absolutely nauseating toe licking worshipers of cops and every other authority figure in our increasingly tyrannical society. These dimwits will automatically take the side of any cop who is involved in any encounter with the public – and especially so, if the cop is White and the citizen is black. I try to explain to these White idiots that cops are not restricting their abusive and sadistically violent behavior to only dangerous (and often deserving) uncooperative blacks or mestizos, but that they are also terrorizing White Americans as well. This case proves my point.
Out of control, psychopath cops are a threat to every American, no matter what race you might belong to.
Steroids plus the corrupt new LEO mentality replacing the PEACE Officer job requirement.
