18 year old killed in family home by police

Keith Vidal’s family says they called police for help when their son was having a schizophrenic episode. But what happened on Sunday was something they never expected.

The 18-year-old from Boiling Springs Lake, North Carolina, was tased by two police officers and then shot and killed by a third officer from a neighboring town, according to CNN affiliate WWAY.

Vidal’s father, Mark Wilsey, told CNN affiliate WECT that his son had been holding an electric, six-inch screwdriver and threatening his mother, his father, Mark Wilsey, told CNN affiliate WECT. The family says the two officers from Boiling Lakes Spring Police Department had the situation under control until an officer from Southport arrived.

The family told WECT that the two officers had their son on the ground after he was tased, when the third officer said, “We don’t have time for this.” The family says that’s when the officer shot their son.

Detective Byron Vassey is on paid administrative leave in connection with his involvement in the incident, according to WECT. The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating this case.

    This isn’t an uncommon event. Here in Madison in the last year we’ve had two emotionally disturbed people and one stumbling drunk shot to death by police. People need to remember than when you call the police you’re also calling a firing squad that, at their sole discretion, can kill your loved one.

    But putting them in institutions is cruel.

      cruel = not politically advantageous.

      RE – The story…There is a great outdoor gun range in Southport (Southport, NC –where the idiot cop was employed) that I frequent to fire my AR15’s. The place is usually packed. Not surprisingly, nobody has ever been killed by a weapon of any kind at that location. The range is operated by a former marine gunny that doesn’t tolerate crazy citizens or crazy cops utilizing his facility. I wonder if there is a correlation? No I don’t.

    The whole world society is insane now, unable to accept reality:

    In 1905, Einstein discovered mass is stored energy, E = mc^2,

    In 1922, Aston said the human race now has “at its command powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction !”

    Instead of using that knowledge for the benefit of society, it was used selfishly:

    In 1945-1971, the Second World War, the Cold War, and finally agreements were reached to end the Scientific Revolution.

    On 5 Jan 1972 Richard Nixon announced the decision to the world. At the Lunar Science Conference in March, we were told Nixon and Brezenov planned to orbit planet Earth in a satellite and sign a world peace treaty!

    Here’s background information:

  4. Another schizophrenic attack omanuel? Don’t call the police.

    Reassign those policemen to investigate the IRS about their Tea Party intimidation. It will only take a few “we don’t have time for this” incidents, and we’ll get to the truth.

    Obama sons strike again! And again, and again, and again…

    “DENVER (CBS4) – Denver police are investigating three violent attacks involving four victims in LoDo on New Year’s Eve.

    It’s possible the attacks are part a violent game called the “Knockout Game” where a person is sucker punched for no reason. The victims from LoDo say they were approached by complete strangers, had no altercations that would lead up to a situation, and that they were random attacks.

    The police report gives a very vague description of the suspects. Only that it was a group of African-American men.”

    Another sucker punched a mom dropping off her daughter at a dance studio in Los Gatos. I’m sure Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Skeeter will issue a statement condemning these attacks, as soon as they learn there is no ‘n’ in ‘ethics’.

  7. Bob Knows says:

    Killing is what the blue gun thugs do. No sane parent would ever call the gun thugs to “take care of” their son. That’s just murder by cop. Kill 5 civillians and make “ACE PIG.”

  8. Karl W. Braun says:

    Unfortunately, a lot of bullies seem to end up amongst the ranks of law enforcement.

  9. Andy Oz says:

    Perhaps Southport Police can be called in to sort out this mess.
