Parker v DC: An early response
Submitted by: TriggerFinger

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The plaintiffs in Parker v DC have filed their response to the government's motion. This is the third document in a sequence of four: proposal, counterproposal, response, and counterresponse. All this is supposed to decide what happens to the case next. The government wants a dismissal on alternate grounds (standing, rather than on the merits). The Parker plaintiffs want to proceed to argue the merits of the case, and we're here today to analyze their response -- which they filed ahead of the deadline."

"There aren't supposed to be any new issues raised here; we are only responding and elaborating on issues raised in the earlier proposal and counterproposal." ...

"The Pentagon is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to develop a new "energy pulse" weapon that can deliver a jolt of excruciating pain from more than a mile away. Researchers have expressed outrage that work used to control pain is now being used to develop such a weapon."

"The weapons involve Pulsed Energy Projectiles (PEPs), which fire a laser pulse that in turn generates a burst of expanding plasma when it hits something solid. It can cause temporary paralysis and knock a person off their feet. But documents uncovered by the Sunshine Project, a biotechnology watchdog, also reveal that the same technology could be used to kill a person." ...

"Dameon K. Wroe has four days to make what might be the hardest decision of his life."

"The security guard, who fatally shot a man at a Rancho Cucamonga apartment complex, must choose by Wednesday whether to admit to a crime he doesn't believe he committed, or gamble at trial and risk decades behind bars." ...

"Wroe fatally shot 19-year-old Michael Krause Jr. at the Sycamore Springs Apartments in Rancho Cucamonga on New Year's Day 2004."

"Prosecutors allege Wroe shot Krause while Krause was following the guard's orders to leave the apartment's gated parking lot."

"Wroe, 33, claims he fired in self-defense after Krause twice tried to run him over with a pickup." ...

"The lawmakers pointed a statement on FN Herstal's own website to support their contention that the gun could pierce police body armor. The statement asserted that when the Five-seveN is used with a bullet called the SS190, it can 'defeat the enemy in all close combat situations in urban areas, jungle conditions, night missions and any self-defense action. Enemy personnel, even wearing body armor can be effectively engaged up to 200 meters. Kevlar helmets and vests ... will be penetrated.'" ...

"Congressman Eliot Engel of Rockland and Westchester counties Friday announced he has introduced legislation to ban the five-seven handgun - a pistol capable of killing a police officer by penetrating a bullet-proof vest from over 200 meters."

"'It is common sense that five-seven handguns should be banned because the weapon exists only to kill law enforcement officers,' said Engel. 'If you support police officers, then you should support my legislation to ban this cop-killer weapon. Police officers wear bullet-proof vests to get them home safe to their families and loved-ones. We owe it to those brave men and women to help ensure their bullet-proof vests cannot be pierced by readily available five-seven handguns.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW

A 13-year-old Wilder Middle School pupil was charged Thursday with bringing an unloaded .22-caliber pistol to school. Henrico County authorities said they also found ammunition for the gun in a coat in the boy's locker.

Police said school administrators earlier Thursday were alerted that the boy may be in possession of a handgun.

They took him to the office and found the weapon in his pocket during a search. "He said it wasn't his," Henrico police Lt. Doug Perry said.

The boy was charged with possession of a firearm on school property and possession of a firearm by a minor.

"Former St. Louis County police Officer Thomas Zeigler was taken from a Clayton courtroom in handcuffs Friday after a judge sentenced him to three months in jail and fined him $5,500."

"A jury took less than an hour in January to decide Zeigler wasn't a candidate for prison in the shooting of fellow officer and lover Patricia March on March 3, 2003, inside Zeigler's SUV."

"Instead, the jury recommended a fine by Judge Melvyn W. Wiesman for assault, a three-month sentence for a companion charge of cocaine possession and a fine for possessing marijuana." ...

"A former New York City police officer was sentenced Friday to five years in federal prison for conspiring to buy a kilogram of cocaine in Rhode Island. Prosecutors said Jose Gabriel Delvalle, 24, was carrying his police credentials and service pistol when he was arrested in October in Warwick while arranging to buy the drugs. He was with Basilio Aquiles Delvalle, 34, also of New York, who was sentenced to 46 months. The two men pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a kilogram or more of cocaine. The men had agreed to pay $18,500 for the kilogram, and had said they might buy an additional nine kilograms in the future, prosecutors said." ...

"An investigation of South Carolina's system for tracking police officers with histories of misconduct or criminal behavior showed that many officers remained on forces despite major incidents of misconduct and sometimes even criminal behavior."

"The (Charleston) Post and Courier reported Saturday that the state agency responsible for enforcing professional standards among the state's 14,000 officers lacks basic resources such as field investigators and a disciplinary board."

"The officers, some with criminal records that have been wiped clean through court programs, frequently filter down to smaller police agencies that sometimes overlook past problems because they cannot afford to pay competitive salaries." ...

"Manufacturer Taser International is touting a new compact, lightweight version - this one for sale to the public."

"The new model's debut comes as Taser International faces questions about the safety of the weapons, even in the hands of trained police officers. And some of the very officers who support the use of Tasers by law enforcement are not so sure Joe Schmoe should carry one, too." ...

"Officers receive several hours of training before using the Taser. Civilians who buy them aren't required to get any instruction. And they don't need a concealed weapons permit." ...

"The Cleveland Plain Dealer has published an unsigned editorial criticizing a move this week in the Statehouse to close the Media Access Loophole." ...

"In the editorial, the PD states that 'Ohio's CCW bill was terribly flawed when signed by Gov. Bob Taft in January 2004. The only public access provided to permit records was given to journalists. That absurd policy was a direct insult to the residents of Ohio.'"

"We couldn't agree more with the 'flawed' comment. In reality, however, it is the liberal media's assertion that people who are exercising a constitutional right to bear arms for self-defense deserve to be treated as sex offenders under suspicion, and in need of being watched, that is an insult to Ohioans." ...

"Having won Ohioans the right to carry hidden guns 14 months ago, the legislature's confraternity of concealment is now working to hide other things from the general public."

"A group of lawmakers, led by Cincinnati-area Republican Rep. Bill Seitz, is seeking to make the identities of concealed-weapons permit holders a state secret by exempting them from Ohio's open-records laws - records to which only journalists now have access."

"This attempt speaks volumes about Ohio's lawmakers and their skewed priorities. It's not enough that, while Ohio's economy continued to slide, the General Assembly spent nearly a decade debating the issue of guns. Now, legislative gun zealots would focus on a further extension of gun rights rather than on Ohio's pressing budget, economic development and tax-reform needs." ...

"Critics said the bill could lead to confrontations in bars and would raise insurance premiums for businesses."

"Under SB1363, people could carry weapons into bars and restaurants that did not post notices prohibiting it."

"Columbus police officer Mark J. Johnson, who was first on the scene in a recent shooting involving a criminal with a semi-automatic AK-47, testified Thursday at a Columbus City Council hearing that he is opposed to a ban on such firearms."

"From the Columbus Dispatch:"

"A ban wouldn’t have prevented the incident, he said at a hearing last night on assault weapons."

"Criminals will continue to get their hands on such weapons, ban opponents have said."

"'An outright ban would hurt law-abiding citizens,' Johnson, a 37-year-old Navy reservist, said after the hearing."

"Also testifying was a member of the Ohio National Guard, who informed council members he gets nearly all of his range-training in not while on duty with the Guard, but rather with a semi-automatic version of his military rifle ... which he practices with on his own time." ...

"The BBC has argued that Fearon's version of events is of strong value to the public since he is only one of two people still alive to give an account of the event."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
