Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the go-ahead to shoot down Russian military jets.

A day after NATO Member, Turkey shoots down a Mig-29 that strayed into its airspace on Saturday 10/15; the Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the green light to shoot down Russian military jets when flying missions over Syria and Iraq, if they are endangered.

The RAF Tornado's aircraft will be armed with heat-seeking Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AASRAMS, also called AIM-132 missiles). These weapons, which cost $306,000 US each, can reach triple the speed of sound and have a longer range than other air-to-air missiles, allowing RAF pilots to shoot down enemy aircraft without being targeted themselves.

The Sunday Times' report quoted a defense source as saying: 
"Up till now RAF Tornado's have been equipped with 500lb satellite-guided bombs — there has been no or little air-to-air threat. But in the last week the situation has changed. We need to respond accordingly."
"We need to protect our pilots but at the same time we're taking a step closer to war," said another source. "It will only take one plane to be shot down in an air-to-air battle and the whole landscape will change."
The next question, what will the US do if war is declared against NATO? I hope someone in the US media asks this first thing Monday morning.

Walter Scott Shooting - Dash Cam

The State Law Enforcement Division released the dashcam video of former North Charleston Patrolman 1st Class Michael Slager's traffic stop of Walter Scott on Saturday morning April 4th for a busted tail light. Slager shot and killed Walter Scott 250 feet away from the traffic stop; leading many to wonder what lead up to the shooting.

The State Law Enforcement Division and the FBI are investigating the death of Scott, a 50-year-old African-American man whose death was caught on video by a passerby. Slager's description of what happened starkly contrasts with what's shown on the video. 





Unarmed and Shot by the Police


The person who recorded the video, asked KCAL for anonymity but told the TV station that the officer “exited her patrol car, gun drawn” and told Arellano to get on the ground.
Arellano ignored the request, began walking out of the juice bar and, addressing the officer with a crude reference to women, said: “What are you gonna do bitch, ... ?” the witness said.
About one second later, he was shot, the man told KCAL.
In the video, a voice can be heard asking repeatedly, “Why did she shoot him?” 
[Middleton] said he initially thought it was a neighbor joking with him, but when he turned his head he saw deputies standing halfway down his driveway.
He said he backed out of the vehicle with his hands raised, but when he turned to face the deputies, they immediately opened fire.
“It was like a firing squad,” he said. “Bullets were flying everywhere.”
Jackson was killed by a single bullet fired from the gun of APD Detective Charles Kleinert during a scuffle under a bridge over Shoal Creek near West 34th Street on Friday afternoon, July 26. Kleinert had been inside a nearby Benchmark Bank conducting a follow-up investigation to an earlier, and unrelated, bank robbery when Jackson came to the bank's locked front door and tried to get inside. Unable to do so he left briefly before returning and again trying to enter the bank. The bank manager went out to talk to Jackson and found his behavior suspicious, which she in turn reported to Kleinert. Kleinert went outside to talk to Jackson, a conversation police say was caught on video; Jackson misidentified himself, police said, and then fled. Kleinert apparently believed Jackson intended to "defraud" the bank in some way, police said. The 19-year department veteran decided to give chase –
Manley also provided a bit more information about that pursuit, including that although Kleinert did initially follow Jackson on foot he later stopped a "motorist and enlisted their aid," which is legal under state law.
While that may be true, a source tells the Chronicle that the motorist in question, sitting in a car in a parking lot near the bank, was unnerved by Kleinert's commandeering of the person's car. Indeed, the source said that Kleinert was "out of control" and did not effectively identify himself before directing the motorist to drive him around near the bank. The motorist implored Kleinert to calm down and explain what was happening, the source said; Kleinert declined to do so, the source said, instead telling the motorist to "Go! Go! Go!" When the pair drove up to a bridge that spans Shoal Creek, Kleinert spotted Jackson, who the source said was merely walking along the sidewalk. Kleinert reportedly said, "There he is!" before jumping out of the car. Shaken, the motorist drove away and subsequently called police.
According to Manley, Kleinert followed Jackson under the bridge near the Shoal Creek Trail and there a scuffle ensued; Jackson was shot once, in the back of the neck. He died just before 4:30 pm, police said. Manley said police are still trying to determine what happened during the altercation and whether Kleinert's gun was fired "intentionally or accidentally."
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police state that Jonathan Ferrell crashed into an embankment about 2 a.m.,  Investigators said they found no indication of alcohol use, but are waiting for toxicology tests. Ferrell apparently climbed out of the back window  and walked to a house just visible over the crest of a hill, about a quarter-mile away.
He started “banging on the door viciously,” according to CMPD Chief Rodney Monroe.
The woman who lives there at first thought the man knocking on the door was her husband, coming home late from work. But police said when she saw Ferrell, she thought he was a robber. She dialed 911, asking for officers to come to her home in the 7500 block of Reedy Creek Road.
About 2:30 a.m., three Hickory Grove division officers responded to the call – Kerrick, 27, who’s been an officer since April 2011; Thornell Little, who joined the department in April 1998; and Adam Neal, who’s been an officer since May 2008.
They encountered Ferrell a short distance from the home, police said.
As the officers got out of their car, “Mr. Ferrell immediately ran toward the officers,” according to a police statement. It said Ferrell moved toward Kerrick. Little fired his Taser, but police said it was unsuccessful. Police said Kerrick fired “several” rounds, striking Ferrell “multiple times.” He died at the scene. Police gave no additional details Sunday. Ferrell had no criminal record in North Carolina and a 2011 misdemeanor charge in Florida that was dismissed.


After a very brief investigation, Randall Kerrick, was charged with voluntary manslaughter within 19 hours of the shooting. Bond was set at $50,000.

Navy Veteran Killed by Police - Witness say his hands were up

Neighbor J.C. McDowell

Family members and the community are still reeling from the death of a man they say served his country and his neighbors.
William Dean Poole had lived in the Wedowee Lane mobile home park south of Gastonia for almost 30 years. He was shot to death by police responding to what they described as a psychiatric call.

Officers were called to Poole’s residence at 130 Wedowee Lane, south of Gastonia, by the National Veteran’s Hotline which the man had called expressing a plan to commit suicide. The caller told the operator Poole had mentioned owning guns, had talked about “taking out others before himself,” but had urged the hotline not to send police, saying it “would not end well.”

Officers said they arrived to find Poole sitting on his riding lawn mower in his front yard. After police identified themselves and began approaching, the officers claim he pulled out a gun and opened fire. Four unidentified officers shot back, killing the man.
Neighbor J.C. McDowell who lives across the street from Poole is telling another story however. He says after officers approached Poole, they ordered him to put his hands up.McDowell says he could see Poole start to pull his arms up, and that’s when they fired. “I just can’t get that image out of my head,
Jeff Poole says his uncle talked frequently about his time in the U.S. Navy.
“He served his country with honor, and that’s all he ever talked about,” he said. “And for this to happen is such an eye-opener to what this country has come to.”
More disturbing is the fact that this is the 3rd police shooting in Gastonia, NC, 19 miles west of Charlotte.


In early February, another NC war veteran was shot and killed by a Gastonia police officer when the officer forcible broke into his home to preform a welfare check after concerned family members called police worried because the 74-year-old had just underwent surgery. 

In late February, Gastonia Police shot a mother of two after she called them for help removing unwanted guests from her home.
