Ohio man, son killed Ark. cops, then gunned down by cops

• AP

An anti-government Ohio man who had several run-ins with police around the U.S. was identified Friday as one of two people who allegedly gunned down two officers during a traffic stop in Arkansas.

Arkansas State Police on Friday identified the pair — killed during an exchange of gunfire with law enforcement officers — as Jerry R. Kane Jr., 45, of Forest, Ohio, and his son, Joseph T. Kane, believed to be 16.

The day after the shoot out there was an ariel video, which has since been removed, showing the van completely surrounded by dozens of cops with guns drawn. They continued to fire at the van for several minutes. No wonder 2 more cops were hit, probably from some of their own. It was obvious the van had been rammed and at one point a black lab dog jumped out of the rear side window. The video also showed cops pulling the passenger door open, and they drug the lifeless body of young Joe out of the van onto the ground. It was very plain there were NO license plates on the van and none on the ground around the van. This whole story stinks. Is it possible Jerry and his son were set up. They were convicted without a trial. Check out this link as a possible cause.

 The officer stops a van with Ohio plates, the photo of a dead kid handcuffed beside the van shows no plates, Nick Kenney of  WMCtv 5 said the plates were traced to a church. How can you trace plates that aren't there ?

A woman interviewed ( who wasn't shown - possible police cover up) said there were no plates.

Bobby Carter in WMCtv interview said Hispanic males.

" fish and game officer rams the van of the suspect (s) ( someone who is under suspicion ) "

I heard that the people that killed the police officers at the drug checkpoint (Why we allow checkpoints of any kind baffles my mind) were "Hispanic" and had a white van with an orange roof. Here are 2 white guys in a white van with a white roof.

Be sure to read Jim Palmisano's submission which gives the other perspective:

I find the mainstream media's spin on this dual story interesting to say the least.  Sure would like to see all of the Walmart parking lot video footage....
