Mother Called Police Because Her Son Had a Warrant — Cops Showed Up and Killed Him

Free Thought Project – by Claire Bernish

Denver, CO — Calling law enforcement for assistance has been a fatal mistake for thousands of American families — but that painful reality didn’t occur to Colorado mother, Tobi Ferguson, until her son joined the astonishingly long list of those killed by police.

Instead of the much-needed assistance Tobi hoped her call to officers would provide for her troubled son, Michael, police showed up and killed him.  

Knowing Michael had several outstanding warrants, including a felony, his mother naively felt calling the cops was the right thing to do. But instead of straightening out his issues, Tobi’s call to police became cause for planning Michael’s funeral.

“My son was in trouble a little bit, I’m not defending my son in any way,” she emphasized, according to the Denver Channel. “We were trying to help him and bring him in safely.”

Michael took a truck from his mother’s workplace — but failed to return the vehicle by the agreed upon 5 p.m.

Knowing Michael would be headed for her best friend’s house in the now-stolen truck, Tobi alerted police to his whereabouts — though she informed them of various extenuating circumstances in an attempt to thwart potential misunderstandings at the scene.

“I let them know that he was unarmed, I let them know that he was scared, I let them know that he would try to run,” she recalled.

Her caveats, however, weren’t heeded by responding officers.

When police arrived at the house, Michael expectedly tried to flee through a back window. Police claim that an altercation took place in the middle of the road and Michael tried to reach for one of the officer’s guns in its holster.

As the three officers fought with Michael over the weapon, the Denver Post reported police said, the gun discharged. After that initial shot, Commander Bob Archer of the Denver Police Department’s major crimes unit said an 11-year veteran of the forces shot the young man, killing him.

“Our witnesses and evidence suggest that gun was discharged in the struggle,” Archer explained vaguely.

Denver Police refused to release the names of officers involved in the incident, how they were injured, and who fired the fatal shot.

Though precisely why Michael had been wanted by police isn’t entirely apparent — police refused to elaborate on outstanding charges — the Denver Post reported he had a failure to appear warrant.

Police never claimed Michael had a weapon — only that he attempted to flee from officers, once in the stolen truck and a second time by unsuccessfully commandeering a patrol car. An investigation is now underway.

Two officers received unknown injuries during the fracas and were taken to the hospital, but did not need to be kept overnight. The nature of those injuries was not disclosed.

As would be expected, while police investigate themselves, the unnamed officer responsible for Michael’s untimely death has been granted the typical reward for doing so: paid vacation known technically as administrative leave.

It wouldn’t be a stretch to predict the Denver Police will find they did nothing wrong in cutting a troubled young man’s life short — and that they followed procedure to the letter.

  1. Mother wonders what went wrong?
    1. No father because no man can abide an arrogant feminist?
    2. Arrogant feminist called a brutal murderous band of legal criminals to do what she can’t because she is an arrogant feminist.
    3. Arrogant feminist believes emulation is not a valid means of rearing children so behaves as she demands her children do not.
    4. Arrogant feminist believes a brutal murderous band of legal criminals replaces a father.
    5. Arrogant feminist believes maleness is not required to raise a male.
    6. Nothing went wrong. The cops did what cops do. SHE went wrong believing her feminism was enough to raise a man.

    1. yep…. she was married to the government, and called 9-1-1 for her “husband” to deal with the rowdy kid.

      It’s too bad they didn’t shoot her, instead.

      And that, buy the way, is why the Rockefellers funded the entire “woman’s lib” movement; to break up families, and double the number of tax payers. (This according to Nick Rockefeller himself).

  2. Im sorry but what did she expect to happen? In Co its a felony to run in the first place, i see nothing done wrong here. Im tired of people making excuses for shootings when their kids were commiting a criminal act in the first place

    1. Yes, Tess. Every potential criminal suspect, substantiated with or without any evidence or probable cause and a fair trial, should be judicated and summarily executed on the roadside by a uniformed, low-IQ, steroid raged power mad maniac with a gun.(sarc)

      Running being a felony is the first clue somthing is wrong with the law.

    2. “In Co its a felony to run in the first place, i see nothing done wrong here.”

      Seriously, Tess???

      #1. If someone runs from the pigs, where is the injury? And to whom? There HAS to be an injured party, OR THERE IS NO CRIME! Harm (physical harm, NOT emotional, psychological, or otherwise) another person or their property… THEN A CRIME HAS BEEN COMMITTED.

      #2. The pigs have NO LEGITIMATE BASIS TO EVEN EXIST TO BEGIN WITH. Are you truly so naive as to believe they have ANY authority over you? The ONLY ‘authority’ they possess is at the point of a gun… PERIOD. Their only function is to protect the corporate interests, NOT the public.

      #3. “Police never claimed Michael had a weapon — only that he attempted to flee from officers,…”

      By their own admission, HE WASN’T ARMED! How could they have possibly been ‘in fear for their lives’ when… “I let them know that he was unarmed, I let them know that he was scared, I let them know that he would try to run,”

      Knowing ALL that UP FRONT, they STILL couldn’t refrain from MURDERING him. Ever hear of tasers & pepper spray? Believe it or not, they actually work most of the time.

      “… when their kids were commiting a criminal act in the first place”

      Unless it was a criminal act of kidnapping or murder, IT DOESN’T WARRANT A DEATH SENTENCE!

      It sounds as if you’re advocating for the pigs (our enemies) to be the judge, jury & executioner… on the flimsiest of excuses.

  3. He was shot because he ran rather than immediately submitting to their “authority”.

    He’s a man of a rebellious nature, and he’ll always be trouble to the NWO, so get rid of him now.

  4. “I let them know that he was unarmed, I let them know that he was scared, I let them know that he would try to run,” she recalled.”

    In other words… YOU GAVE THEM THE PERFECT VICTIM, SERVED UP ON A PLATTER!

    “My son was in trouble a little bit, I’m not defending my son in any way,”

    You’re a REAL piece of work there, citizen Jane. By not defending your own flesh & blood, conversely you’re defending the murderous actions of the pigs.

    I sure hope that .40 to the back of the head isn’t in your future. You’re far more deserving of Camp FEMA, if only to educate you as to how STUPID you are before they whack you.
