That title might sound like hyperbole, but James Peters, former cop, didn’t just kill one person, or two people, or even three people. He KILLED SIX people in twelve years. As far as I can ascertain (without spending the rest of a nice Summer day reading about this psychopath), it would be SEVEN people, but the other person survived.
And he is a serial killer
The FBI … define serial killing as “a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone
What kind of bizarro world do we live in, where this guy, is not only not in prison, he’s making a very good living. He’s literally teaching other cops how to, and that it’s ok, to end someone’s life.
And, this is going to continue, and continue, and continue, because there doesn’t seem to be a tipping point for our elected officials. You can only conclude that this is happening at their behest. 787 people have been killed by law enforcement as of this writing so far in 2015. Granted, not all of them are innocent, but that’s why we have jails and prisons, and an alleged justice system. How does a psychopath like James Peters get away with ending multiple lives because his fragile panicky emotional mind told him to kill?
The answer is: They’re explicitly being taught a warrior mentality, and that it’s ok to kill, as I’ve posted before
I (personally) can only conclude that what is happening is what is happening because that’s how our alleged representatives want it. Again, the Banality of Evil comes to mind
The concept of the banality of evil came into prominence following the publication of Hannah Arendt’s 1963 book Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, which was based on the trial of Adolph Eichmann in Jerusalem. Arendt’s thesis was that people who carry out unspeakable crimes, like Eichmann, a top administrator in the machinery of the Nazi death camps, may not be crazy fanatics at all, but rather ordinary individuals who simply accept the premises of their state and participate in any ongoing enterprise with the energy of good bureaucrats.
And here’s the story of James Peters
The Scottsdale police officer who killed six is now training cops when to shoot to kill
Down and Drought has learned that VirTra Systems, Inc., a Tempe company that produces a shooting simulator used for law enforcement and military training, employs former Scottsdale police officer James Peters who resigned from the department amid controversy in 2012 following revelations that he had tallied six fatal shootings during his twelve year career.
James Peters was cleared in his final fatal shooting, that of John Loxas, an unarmed man carrying his grandchild when Peters shot and killed him. The incident ignited anti-police protests and debate around this officer who had killed so many, and resulted in the city paying out a $4.25 million dollar settlement to the Loxas family. In the summer of 2012, Peters took an early retirement from the city, and effectively dropped out of sight. But while he was no longer a police officer he continued to work alongside law enforcement in the private sector.
VirTra Systems was a perfect place for the former officer to put his unique skills to use. The company offers some of the most realistic simulations for small arms training by police and military. VirTra’s top product is their V-300 shooting simulator, an immersive experience in which trainees are nearly surrounded by five screens displaying a 300-degree scenario in which the trainee must choose when and how to use deadly force. The V-300 blasts sound at the trainee as well. Describing the experience, VirTra’s website says the “audio system provides over 2,000 watts of audio, and transducers mean simulated sounds feel real and adrenal is felt during training.” […]
