Right and wrong. It’s not usually a hard line to determine.
Cops say hault – you hault.
Laws say don’t do it – Don’t do it.
You get stopped – Cooperate.
I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the teenager who was shot and killed by a Fall River cop a few nights ago. It’s a sad situation when a young person dies no matter what the circumstances are but man, let me tell you, blaming the cops is the last thing anyone should do here. This family isn’t just blaming the cops – they started a fucking riot in the hospital where the kid was brought and are coming up with these far-fetched conspiracy theories to pass the buck.
The dude killed was 19 year-old Larry Ruiz-Barreto and he was from good ol New Bedford.
Handsome kid. Seems he was going to be a dad.
Well Larry had a fondness for racing cars and flashing gang signs. If you look up Fall River Street Racing on YouTube you’ll see the same spot where the incident took place. Its kind of the place where this shit happens. Wow, here I thought they were knitting. Larry and his boys took the cars out to race that night and someone called the cops. Seems the caller had heard loud pops that sounded like gunshots and lots of smoke. Fall River PD dispatched to scene and everyone started to flee. Including Larry. The officer had to pull his gun and shot him.
Now of course everyone who knew Larry said he was innocent, his hands were up, the cops were the bad guys.
They said the whole crew of hoodlums was “having fun” (illegally racing their cars) and that Larry had his hands up.… as he tried to flee the scene… in a car. (Uh.)
His father Jose Ruiz-Hernandez actually called the cops “assassins.” Other relatives tried to block reporters from taking pictures of family, who was later arraign for acting like animals in a hospital, while another said that this was a police cover up for murder.
God, I really hate to roll my eyes at a grieving family…. but fuck.
Now Larry’s posse is calling on the squad to fight the police.
Oh that’s nice. It’s like best of New Bedford presentation.
I’m sure Angel, whose real name is Miguel, is a fine, upstanding citizen….
Flat brim Bulls hat… drinking Henny in the car? Star witness in the cliche court of ratchetry.
The Bristol County DA is doing a full investigation and won’t comment until they have completed it. So, logically, the family is claiming the cops are hiding shit and not cooperating.
The cops don’t have to cooperate until the investigation is done.
That means this group of family and friends have zero care about procedure. Sensing a theme?
I have heard from five different sources, some of whom works inside the system, that the perfect little angel had allegedly hit an Officer with his car while trying to trying to flee the scene. The cop was said to have been dragged bybthe car, which had become a legal weapon at that point, and Larry was shot.
Hell, it was even all over the community pages. Shit was split like a Capulet and Montague battle in downtown Verona. You know, if Verona had a black market for food stamps, drug sales, and toothless whores of the pasty variety dropping N bombs.
Backup was called along with a rescue crew and Larry was transferred to the hospital. Family and friends gathered in the waiting room and started a near-riot when they heard he didn’t survived.
Look, I understand flipping your shit when a loved one is gone too soon but this was proof that we weren’t dealing with upstanding folk here. I’m not sure but the kid above barking about the cops after posting he was drinking and driving might have been a clue…
Five of the hoard of people were arrested because of it. Larry’s father and uncle were included in that.
So, needless to say I’m rather eager to hear the outcome of the investigation. I’m also hoping that more charges are filed for the people who fled the scene and are now playing the valme game after evading arrest.
You play stupid games you win stupid prizes. I’m just sorry this never-learned perpetual lesson of JUST COOPERATE means an unborn kid has to grow up without a dad. Judging by the company Larry kept, and came from, he didn’t have a chance to learn the right thing to begin with.
