I dunno, I hate cops and all that, but the news said he was trying to run them over at the time which does look pretty bad. The tragedy that led to this kid's untimely death should probably be considered on a larger time scale.

in the last few years a pattern has been emerging involving police chases where the pigs apperently have someone cornered and claim attempts are are made to run them over. Then they shoot. From the news accounts it would appear that the cop cars were in danger, which reaffirms the belief that cops are here to protect property instead of people.

I personally plan to go to Plymouth myself to investigate this murder and encourage the youth in the area to do something about this.

Anybody smart enough to "hate cops and all that " should be smart enough to not trust the corporate media accounts of a police shooting where the victim is dead and can't offer a counter-point.

In all likelyhood Ori is a pig.

The Black Panther Party defined the pig as "A foul traducer, often found posing as the victim of an unprovoked attack"

dude, i agree tht the media was lying but you are crazy. just because someone believes hat they read in the paper does not make them a pig.

Let's not jump to a conclusion before all of the facts are in. The media loves to create hysteria, because, quite simply, they are corporations and what do corporatuions thrive on... Profits !. If they don't have something to rant about, no one watches, revenues go down.

Were the cops wrong? Thats yet to be seen. another question one must ask themselves is what is a 16 year old doing out at 3:45 in the morning? According to the news stories ( again, not gospel) the victim has been locked up in juvenile facilities twice and hasn't gone to school since October. Does this justify, as his mom said, a "death sentence". No. But before we start screaming another murder by cops, let's wait and see how this plays out.

cops are always wrong because their existence is wrong.

they're not people. it's a choice they make.

when is the last time a cop killed (or even arrested) a real criminal?
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation

Not a coward, most likely a 12 year old.

I know who you are but you don't know who I am.

Watch out for the suckerpunch cuz that's how us cowards operate
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
11 Jan 2006
But seriously, If you suckerpunch me, you better do it pretty damn hard and break into a fast run, cuz I got a hard head, and will give you 3up like Super Mario. Besides that, unless you are dressed like an ARA, I'll know where to return the favor.

Referring to the law enforcement community as "pigs" is quite funny. Old world thinking for the misguided. It is presetnly 2006 and the great men and women that volunteer to serve and protect are better trained, better educated and better equiped than the "pigs" of the 1960's. Time to move on and catch up with the rest of the world. Your 40 years behind the rest of us.
Kid earned the right to have deadly force invited upon him. 16 years old out at 0300? Come on, he is up to no good. Past criminal history and the police do not have the right to defend themselves against some low life? Please? You guys are laughable at best but lost in space!

We mourn the suspicious and premature death of Anthony McGrath. Had Anthony McGrath lived in affluent Cambridge, Wellesley, Westwood, etc we would not be shaking our heads in disbelief today. Class and poverty are still big issues in the land of people about to elect Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Mars is totaly on target. I fully agree with Mars. Our thoughts and prayers go out the Mc Grath family. We want to see a full and fair investigation into the shooting death of Anthony.
His Momz
12 Jan 2006
His mother looked really upset on the news. The dollar signs in her eyes were blocking the tears. I bet shes hoping to get a "double wide" out of all this.
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
12 Jan 2006
yeah she has moey on her mind. The patriot Ledger reported that she can't afford a fucking funeral.

Asshole.
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
12 Jan 2006
... But she got into a brand new after being interviewed. The Patriot Ledger reported, I may be mistaken nick, but I though we didn't trust the corporate media. Oh, I'm sorry, we they say something we agree with, it's gospel.
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation

Class or gender has nothing to do with it. You break the law, including trying to kill a cop, will will be dealt with properly and fairly.

Don;t worry, there will be a detailed investigation!
Re: R.Lee comment
12 Jan 2006
Come on R. Lee show some human decency to a poor grieving mother, or are you just a miserable mean spirited person? Again it is all about class and poverty. A disturbed youth from a privileged background would have had access to the best of mental care, and family support.

THINK!!!
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation

I'm using sarcasm to make a point. It sux when someone dies, but the majority of the posters here are all assuming that this poor "child" was completely innocent and that the cops were just out to kill someone. Unfortunately, alot of factors came together and it resulted in the death of this youth. Let's wait until all the facts are in both we start making conclusions.
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
12 Jan 2006
Agreed! Let's wait and see what happens.

Although, the cards are aying that this was a "justified shooting". If there is such a thing......

Mental health/drug abuse help are available to everyone. I know this from working around thiese types of people, especailly low income. My guess is Mom was to Cracked Out with her sex offender BF to really be to concerned about helping her own kid. I also beleive that there was mention of other kids living away from Mom. If not because the LEVEL THREE (high probability of re-offending) sex offender then she is just a shitty mom.

Again, lets wait and see what happens!

honestly flipside? no one cares what you have to say, no one likes you, and no one reads your stupid magazine or whatever the fuck it is.

and Veteran, all these good old american values of yours got tiresome after your first post. why don't you stop wasting your time?
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
12 Jan 2006
Shhhhhhh.............

You people are quick to jump on the police for defending themselves? Hmmmm, is that right? American values are what more of Americans need to pay attention to and stop wasting their time whining about things that are fictional, things they know nothing about and things that don't concern them. Values like you break the law, including trying to kill a police officer, you are going to get in trouble. At best you are going to jail for a very long time- regardless of whether mommy and daddy didn't love you enough. A 16 year old knows that to attempt to harm a police officer is going to end with less than favoralbe results for him/herself.

Lastly, was being "popular" or part of the "in crowd" required around here? Noah, you are dating yourself again! :)
Re: Cops Kill Kid - Get Paid Vacation
12 Jan 2006
Nope, I'm not a cop--actually I'm an abolitionist. I hope if there's any further truth to be uncovered here (which there fairly often is) it's uncovered. I just don't think automatically insisting all accused people have been framed makes for good politics, or politics that spread. Furthermore it implicitly reinforces the idea that all state-declared crimes *are* bad, by implying that to find sympathy with the accused we must first exonerate them of their alleged actions. In a revolutionary situation some people *will* be faced with the decision of fighting back against police and military forces; why would we cloud those decisions by pretending that everyone accused of doing so in pre-revolutionary times was actually framed?
Re: Mars not being Micah Lee.
12 Jan 2006
To Flipside.
Where did you study latin? And why can't you be less pompous and a little more humane? I brought the name of Judge Samuel Alito to explain why this country is behaving as badly as it does. Self-righteous judges do not belong in a DEMOCRACY. All right?
Re: Assassination Anthony Mc Grath.

To Flipside,
Come on man are you for real or just a POSEUR? Vos diatribes sont completement CONNES! SARKOZY must really LOVE YOU. Allez vous faire voir vieux CON! Ha, Ha, Ha!
