Police sniper shoots suicidal boy instead of saving him


The parents of a suicidal 16-year-old boy who was shot to death by a SWAT team sniper in suburban Atlanta have spoken out for the first time against the unjustified actions of the police.

Andrew Messina had threatened to kill himself after getting a bad grade in school last May. He took his father’s .357 Magnum, took swigs of alcohol from a bottle of Martini, and phoned his father to relay his suicidal thoughts – all while recording himself with a video camera.

“I do know personally I really don’t want to live,” Andrew told his father on the phone. “So you should just let this happen if you really love me.”

While he was on the phone, Lisa Messina, the boy’s mother, called the police and told the 911 operator that they should send “just one” police car to make sure her son wouldn’t panic.

“It just happened so fast, and then he went upstairs,” Lisa Messina told CBS Atlanta. “He had a gun in his hand, and he had bullets in the other hand.”

From the position of the sniper, the sniper bullet certainly couldn't have done any ulterior damage, right? But if it did, it would have been way less than that of the kid's gun, right?

Police, law enforcement officers, cops, peace officers. I call them corporate nazi thugs with guns and badges. No matter what you call them, they are the most dangerous element we have in our society today.

These drones who have supposedly signed an oath to serve & protect the people and the Constitution don't even know the first amendment of the Constitution and if they did they wouldn't be doing what they are trained to do. It is almost impossible to show someone the truth when their pay checks depend on them not knowing the truth.

These brain dead thugs with guns and badges are only there to protect the corporations and their pay checks. NOTHING MORE PERIOD! The dens of corruption most still call courts sanction and condone these thugs to keep the slave sheeple in line and generate massive revenue under the color of law.

Murdering a 16 year old boy who needs help, beating a homeless person to death because he was there, electrocuting a 70 year old grand mother after an illegal traffic stop, plundering, robbing and kidnapping. It's all business as usual and the sheeple have been conditioned to accept this evil madness on a daily basis. Welcome to the Twilight Zone on Steroids.
