Pine Bluff, Ark. - A 107-year old Pine Bluff man died Saturday after a shootout with officers and S.W.A.T. members. The Pine Bluff Police Dept. released the following information about the incident on Saturday evening. "On September 7, 2013, at approximately 4:25 p.m., Officers of the Pine Bluff Police Department responded to a disturbance at 1411 W. 16th.

Comments:
Something is not quite right here...we hear of stand-offs that last for days and this entire incident lasted only several hours...old man can´t even chill out in his own bedroom without ´victims´ calling the police...he had to fall asleep at some time....

If this wasn´t so sad , it would be funny!
A 107 year old man fights to the death in a blaze of glory.
He was probably just senile and not capable of a proper thought process.
I always wonder why police have to go in, right now, risking death to themselves and the perpetrator. There would not be any danger to society of they simply waited him out from a safe distance.

At the moment we have insufficient information to determine motives in this case ~ however, we will eventually know all about it.

I suspect it´s like the ´crazy guy´ cases where JR is out there threatening to "cut you´all up" swinging a knife around ~ in this case though it´s an old guy in a bed with a gun.

The gun means he really can hurt someone.

It´s easy enough to suggest the cops back off ~ then the guy shot through the window!

They used the wrong gas fur shur!

It´s a shame alright, but the geezer was obviously unstable and waiting would be allowing him to do more harm, like burning down the house.

What were the so called victims doing to the old guy to cause him to go off? Perhaps they were trying to force him to do something he really didn´t want to do and he was protecting himself and then the cops killed him. Just sayin´

My knee jerk reaction is to give LEO the benefit of the doubt cuz I have family serving and appreciate what they face on a day-to-day basis, but it sounds like he threatened someone who was in his house and had a weapon to back it up and they called the police. To confront a guy who was born 8 years before WWI started with a SWAT team makes no sense to me. He was probably acting on reflexes, conditioned by a century of living, which couldn´t have been all that bad because he had the sense to be locked and loaded. Clear the area and wait him out, and if he burns down his own place, so be it.

This old man lived to be 107 years old, only to be killed in his own bedroom "in a shootout with S.W.A.T.". Outrageous!

I realize that we don´t have all the details, but there just has to be a better way to handle a situation such as this.

Poster #2 you are exactly right. These guys with a tin badge get all this "neat" stuff and just gotta use it. So now our local police are paramilitary. Is this how Zippy is going to establish his "Civilian Security Force" (Colorado Springs speech, 2008) or will it be through TSA or both?

The article does not (as usual) give the whole story. Was the old guy defending himself from those who called the police? In which case there was no AA that warranted police action against him. All that aside, as pointed out a 107 yo is pretty darn frail and there are many, many ways to disarm a 107 yo without a shoot out.
Wild animals get better treatment than this.

obomba forces love playing with their new toys purchased with WTP dollars. This poor old man, has learned this the not so easy way. Remember how the SWAT team moved in a month ago to a vet clinic and they slaughtered little bambi? Then there was an Alaska mining town that had a hoard come down on them with gun showing fury. And lets not forget the SWAT team being called when conservative bloggers got to near the truth this past 2 years. That occurred much too frequently

Remember the nurse in FL who had her house invaded as was almost shot because she was so scared she wouldn´t put her gun down? The guitar company, the fishing company in Alaska and on and on and on. Where do you think all those bullets are going? Before we know it, we´ll be rounded up by these "swat" (lower case intended) teams. It´s happening everywhere! I´d bet this poor man would´ve fallen asleep before they needed to do this b?ll crap! I´d also bet he never in his life thought that this kind of $&%# would happen in the US of A.

According to other articles, the old boy was pronounced dead from "multiple gunshot wounds". Evidently the SWAT team threw in a diversionary device, probably the flash-bang, entered the room and Monroe shot at them.


Now I´m seeing this guy expending a lot of ammo shooting out windows and shooting through doors and shooting at cops. Definitely some kind of gun nut. Truth is that the cops tend to get real testy when a citizen starts popping off caps. If they had their way, the only people who´d be armed would be LEOs.

Per wikipedia ... "In 2009, Pine Bluff was ranked by Morgan Quitno Press as the most dangerous metropolitan area in the U.S.[28] and included on the Forbes list of America´s ten most impoverished cities. In 2013, CNNMoney included Pine Bluff on a list of "7 fastest shrinking cities," saying almost a third of the metro area population lived below the poverty line and the city´s crime rate was second only to Detroit."

The cops there are no doubt so used to dealing with really tough characters that they have lost all sense of situational awareness and appropriate response.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
