This charming young man went in search of some books to buy but instead was forced to buy a gun, which he then used to try and kill a cop. Thanks, Obama!
Charges are pending against a man for shooting at the house and car of an IMPD officer.
March Ratney, 27, was taken into custody a short time after the shooting around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday on the near east side. IMPD Chief Troy Riggs says Ratney fired at least a dozen shots after yelling obscenities directed at police. Five of the shots hit the officer’s house and three hit his patrol car. No one inside the house was hurt, and Riggs says members of the community helped officers track down Ratney.
Ratney had just been released from prison on June 6 after serving a sentence for being a felon in possession of a gun, and Riggs says the officer he targeted had arrested Ratney in 2008. Though Ratney was wearing a t-shirt that said “f— the police” on the front and “black lives matter” on the back, Riggs says he does not believe Ratney is representative of any organization or movement.
If only we had some adults in charge who would denounce this behavior.
March Eugene Ratney, according to Department of Correction records, wasn’t due to be released from prison until this past June 6 after serving half of a 12-year sentence following his conviction as a serious violent felon with a weapon. Ten days later, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers were called to an east side address where Ratney’s sister said he had pulled a gun and threatened to kill her.
Investigators now report, and neighbors confirmed, Ratney, on parole, was the man clad in a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and screaming profanities at police, who shot up an IMPD officer’s house not far from his own home early this morning.
The officer and his family were uninjured.
“Think about this, this is your home,” said IMPD Chief Troy Riggs. “If there is one place in this world where you should always feel safe and your family should feel safe, it is in your home.”
So he served half his sentence as a violent felon with a weapon and was released early because obviously the justice system is so unfair to blacks. To show his gratitude he dones a “Fuck the police” t-shirt and tries to murder a cop.
Take a bow, Obama.
Update: This piece of human garbage has been arrested 11 times since 2007. So what the hell was he doing out on the streets?
