NYPD Officer Brian Moore – Just Another Dead Gun Grabber
Apparently, it’s a crime to adjust your belt in Queens now, because that’s why NYPD Officer Brian Moore approached Demetrius Blackwell on Saturday. It was just after 6pm on 212th Street in Queens Village. Moore and his partner, Erik Jansen, both “anti-crime” officers, were in an unmarked car with Officer Moore at the wheel near 104th Avenue when they approached a man who was “walking and adjusting an object in his waistband”.
In New York City, there is a “stop & frisk” policy that basically allows police to search anyone, anytime, anywhere. Blackwell, having numerous run ins with law enforcement before, knew he didn’t have much time. If caught with a loaded handgun in New York City, he could be facing seven years in prison. So he quickly pulled out his gun, and shot Brian Moore in the face, before the gun grabbers had the chance to search, disarm, handcuff, and cage him.
Rightly fearing for his miserable worthless life, Officer Erik Jansen did not give chase or return fire. He cowered in their vehicle, clutching his dying partner, and called for help on the radio. A police cruiser arrived at the scene and rushed Moore to Jamaica Hospital in Queens. Moore underwent surgery, was put into a medically induced coma for two days, and today his family took him off life support. He will never disarm another New Yorker. Good riddance to him.
As NYPD officers initially heard about the shooting, it was eerily reminiscent of the Ismaaiyl Brinsley incident back in December. In that incident two cops, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were gunned down in an ambush by a black man who had posted to social media “I’m putting wings on pigs today”. Brinsley was apparently motivated by racial tensions following the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police.
A white cop, shot by a black suspect, while sitting in his vehicle. Given recent flare ups in Baltimore over the Freddie Gray murder, which led to race riots, and martial law, you can see how they might rush to such a conclusion. Cops reportedly exchanged a flurry of text messages from their cruisers and foot posts, fearing they might be next, as helicopters circled the scene of the shooting.
But as it turns out, Brian Moore was not sitting idly wasting taxpayer money doing nothing in his vehicle. He was out actively enforcing the sick and malicious gun control laws of New York City and State. He was in plain clothes, in an unmarked car, looking for someone to harass. He saw his opportunity when Demetrius Blackwell adjusted his belt, and this was all the suspicion required to forgo any concerns of search warrants or due process. Moore had found himself a gun owner, and he was determined to charge somebody with a felony that evening. Instead he got shot in the face, as well he should have.
I don’t want to make Demetrius Blackwell out to be a hero in all this. He’s a repeat violent felon who has served time in prison and reportedly carries the nickname “Hellraiser” on the street. I’m not sad to see him carted off to prison for what will likely be the rest of his sorry excuse for a life.
But the amount of damage Blackwell committed over the course of his criminal career is no doubt quite small in comparison to the damage done by New York’s oppressive gun control statutes. In fact, one might conclude that Blackwell’s life of crime might never have begun, had he lived in a place where the citizenry was legally able to own firearms, and defend themselves against his aggressions.
Instead, the Brian Moores of the world lay in wait, hiding among the general population in plain clothes, scanning the crowds for anyone who might dare defy the orders of his political masters. If he sees a bulge, an adjusted waistband, or anything he thinks might be a gun or any other contraband, he will “stop & frisk” the suspect without a warrant. If he finds a gun, he’ll charge them with a felony. If they refuse, or run away, he will use any level of force necessary to stop them, up to and including choke holds, tasers, mace, baton strikes, or ironically enough, bullets.
Both of these men were criminals, but only one of them was a gun grabber, and gun control has raised more hell than Demetrius Blackwell could ever hoped to have accomplished.
