Man shot and killed by police

Ninja Cops by Mfrancis

AUSTIN,, Texas — Officials said a police officer has shot and killed a 70-year-old U.S. Navy veteran on Friday after he allegedly refused to surrender his gun and then aimed his weapon at the officer.

Police Chief Art Acevedo said at a news conference that John Schaefer called 911 about 7:20 a.m. to report that he had shot and killed a pit bull that attacked him. Officers reportedly asked dispatchers to call Schaefer back and tell him to put his gun in the house before officers arrived.

Acevedo said Schaefer refused, and he refused again when officer Jonathan Whitted got to the residence and asked Schaefer to hand over the pistol he saw tucked in his waistband.

When Whitted went to take the gun, Schaefer allegedly pulled it out and aimed it at the officer, Acevedo said. Whitted then shot and killed Schaefer. Neighbors, including one man who said he witnessed the incident, said they heard two shots.

It’s not unusual for a police officer to separate an unknown person from a firearm when responding to a situation, even if that person is legally allowed to carry a weapon, according to Lt. Ely Reyes on Friday.

Meanwhile, Schaefer’s family is grappling with the loss of a man they called a rule follower. Victoria Schaefer, his daughter-in-law, said Saturday John Schaefer was a proud longtime Austin resident.

She spoke to the American-Statesman by phone from her father-in-law’s home, where she was collecting belongings that were important to him.

Records show John Schaefer has owned the lot with his mother since 1997, but his daughter-in-law said he lived alone in the duplex on Lanshire Drive after his mother’s death almost two years ago. Her death was hard on him, she said.

He was a gun enthusiast who belonged to area gun clubs, she said, including the Austin Rifle Club, where he was an instructor. He went the shooting range on Tuesdays.

“He was an elderly, nice, peaceful man,” she said.

  1. Wow. News to me. Sounds like a Round Rock, TX police tactic. “Get down on the ground. I don’t care if you are the victim. I don’t care if you called it in. I don’t care if you pose ZERO threat to anyone. I’m the police officer and I’m still going to tase or kill you if you don’t do as I say because I have this uniform that says you have to listen to me and it means you don’t question or talk back to me. Understand?!!”.

    “Officers reportedly asked dispatchers to call Schaefer back and tell him to put his gun in the house before officers arrived.”

    BULLF**KING SHIT!!! And if you believe that one, you’ll believe that dispatch during my incident in September of last year stated that they were never told of who the victim was when they received the call from two of my friends who I clearly heard telling and describing to dispatch who I was and who my attacker was.

    This is blatant police cover-up to cover the cops and the dispatch’s asses from wrong-doing.

    “It’s not unusual for a police officer to separate an unknown person from a firearm when responding to a situation, even if that person is legally allowed to carry a weapon, according to Lt. Ely Reyes on Friday.”

    AHH!!! The infamous disclaimer. GO F**K YOURSELF LIEUTENANT!!!

    Notice the first three letters of the word “Lieutenant”. “LIE”!!! It says it all, people. Trained to lie.

    1. I appreciate this version of the story. When I first heard about it (Fri.), the stories were geared toward MSM (take a look at the CBS News take on it). Knowing the True Texans of that age, I KNEW what was going on. There was a lot more to it. I sent Henry a version that tells a bit more. Unfortunately, he called the cops because he had shot a pit bull that attacked him.
      Lesson: Never Call The Cops.

      1. Yep! And you and I both know that from first hand experience, Angel.

        To all Americans:

        The only law is the one you take in your own hands now. There are no police and there is no government. Only you alone have the power to protect yourself and do what is morally right.

  2. Guy (very) dead with a gun next to him.

    He drew down on me when I told him to surrender his weapon.

    Might be true, might be BS too.

    Not hard to put a gun next to a guy and say he has pointed it at a cop – don’t worry, this is not letting the cat out of the bag as this has been done for ages.

  3. If the man was on is his own property he had the right to keep his firearm with him at all times including when the officers arrived. The officer should be charged with murder, but we all know that won’t happen.

  4. wow, why did the man call the police about the DOG???? For pete’s sake, never call the police people. It starting to seem like the probability of death by COP whenever you call them is just too high.

    1. He called because it what you’re “suppose to do.” He was following the law and “Doing the Right thing.” He was “OLD SCHOOL”, the way I was raised (and many others here).
      The first MSM stories I saw were geared toward “neighbors called 911” saying that they “heard shots coming from the bedroom area of the house” and he was ….mentally…Blah, blah, blah. It was Gun Control/Fear Mongering at its Best.

      1. HAHAAHA!!! Wow! MSM always trying to twist the narrative. They are so pathetic.

        Let’s see, I’m guessing the MSM narrative probably went something like this:

        “The dog was about to attack him, but the man was ex-military and must have been mentally deranged because who would harm an innocent dog, even if it was angry or about to kill him. After all, dogs have more rights than we do. Mr. Schaefer was clearly evil. Anyways, it’s probably better this way, for everyone, since he won’t be able to hurt anymore dogs. By the way, say yes to gun control. Thank you for reading.”

        Sick world, ain’t it?
