Trash talking right wing media lies claim 3 police officers

PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh police say a man wearing a bulletproof vest opened fire on officers during a domestic disturbance call, killing three of them.

Police chief Nate Harper says the motive for Saturday's shooting isn't clear. Friends say the gunman recently had been upset about losing his job and that he feared the Obama administration was poised to ban guns.


Edward Perkovic said Poplawski, his best friend, feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon." Another longtime friend, Aaron Vire, said Poplawski feared that President Barack Obama was going to take away his rights, though he said he "wasn't violently against Obama."

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


I'm sure the fine folks over at Faux News and the NRA are quite proud of themselves this afternoon for telling the lies they do.

Mr. Perkovic and other former classmates said they were surprised by this morning's events. Mr. Perkovic said Mr. Poplawski was opposed to "Zionist propaganda" and was fearful that his right to own weapons would be taken away but he wasn't a member of an organized group or militia.

"He always said that if someone tried to take his weapons away he would do what his forefathers told him to do and defend himself."

Another friend, Aaron Vire, 23, said he'd helped Mr. Poplawski and Mr. Perkovic with a radio show they'd broadcast on the Internet, discussing "politics, girls and life."

Mr. Poplawski had supported Republican candidate John McCain in the presidential election and had "very spirited debates" about Democratic candidate Barack Obama, Mr. Vire said. Mr. Poplawski was opposed to Mr. Obama's election, which he thought would result in the loss of his rights, Mr. Vire said.

"He wasn't a racist but thought some of his amendments were overlooked," Mr. Vire said. Even though Mr. Vire is black and Mr. Poplawski is white, the debates over President Obama did not hurt their friendship, he said.

Mr. Poplawski told him he bought his guns "because he felt the quality of life was being diminished," Mr. Vire said.

"He said he'll be ready if there's ever an invasion of the United States and that he had stockpiled foods and guns for that eventuality."


Keep up the repeating of the fine tall tales told by fools like Limbaugh, the NRA, Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachmann and the rest of the neo-con fear mongers. It will certainly weed out the gullible and weak-minded but at what cost?

"The gunman, 23-year-old Richard Poplawski, was arrested after a four-hour standoff."

I've tried to make sense out of both these posts, but I can't.
I guess I'm getting that Old Timers syndrome.

Well I guess my point was, how come there is no reports on Drudge or
the local news, and what the hell does Rush Limbaugh have to do with it.
Oh my head hurts !

I disagree & think the original post makes allot of sense....... what doesn't make sense is after this slimeball killed 3 of their friends, how could the cops just "Arrest" this guy? (I'm sure there are some petty angry higher-ups in the PD right now & the cops that arrested this jerk are not real popular at the station right now)

Not at all - this fool didn't dream up his fears of Obama taking his guns away on his own. If you think otherwise, you have some explaining to do to those here who believe the same thing and get their information from the same sources.

Exactly. Where the hell does the NRA or Fox news fit into this?? I'm not sure I understand how his dislike for Obama was the motive for killing the cops?

If he surrenders, the Police have no choice but to arrest him. If one of the cops shot him in cold blood, then he is just as guilty as the shooter and would be prosecuted like any other murderer. A true professional does not let emotions interfere with his stated mission.

As for the media or the NRA being responsible for this shooting or any other shooting, that is just a ridiculous claim. The only one responsible is the jack-off behind the trigger. I feel that Obama is not a friend to the 2nd Amendment, or any part of the Constitution, but I am not out there laying waste to my local Police Department, even after reading my NRA mag while listening to Rush. I bet this shooter was on Prozac (or a similar type of drug) like all of these other mass murderers, so I bet the big drug companies have smiles on their faces, but that stuff never gets reported on (those drugs cause homicidal & suicidal tendencies).

:lol: I think he might have been! I never watch his speeches ........ to infuriating! :cry:

I just read that article again. Notice how it says "His friends say........." right before they go into the "infringed rights & guns" thing. That's the newspaper taking someones comment & making sure they use it in whatever context they see fit, which is usually anti-gun to begin with. Of course they're going to use that in their story.

The shooter didn't say it. A reporter says his friend said it. :roll:
