Dunno - but the Starship Troopers scenarios seem to be playing out - more so each day. Here's the headline Memphis riots: Chaos erupts after police shoot and kill 20-year-old black man Brandon Webber Short version of story: Brandon Webber, 20, was getting into his car when US marshals approached and attempted to take him into custody. Webber was wanted on several felony warrants. When the marshals tried to make their arrest, “he reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers’ vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon,” says the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

View from the web- As it turns out dead guy had warrants for Attempted murder, Assault, Armed Robbery and Unauthorized Use. He and business associate of his went to another state to purchase an automobile they saw on Facebook. They forget their billfolds though and our man shot the seller five times in the chest and took the car anyway. This was the car he then used to ram the USM's who were trying to arrest him. After ramming them he then exited the vehicle with a rifle that he had previously posed with on Facebook in an attempt to show the Marshals how proud he was of it. Somehow in the misunderstanding the Marshals thought he was a dangerous fugitive trying to hurt people and they shot and killed him. Speaking of Facebook just hours prior he posted a video on there saying that the police were not going to get him and that they would have to kill him. Mission accomplished says I. His apologists say that he said "catch" not "kill" on the video. I listened to the video and sounded like "kill" to me. ***** (Who was Brandon Webber, the Memphis man shot and killed by U.S. Marshals?) According to the U.S. Marshals Service, their officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant for multiple felonies on Webber when they saw him getting into a car outside a home on Durham Avenue. "In response to a threat posed by the subject, members of the task force fired their weapons, striking and killing him," a statement from the Marshals Service said. At a news conference Thursday afternoon, DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion said Webber went to Hernando on June 3 under the guise of purchasing a car from a man he met on Facebook. He was accused of shooting the man five times and stealing the car. The U.S. Marshals were attempting to arrest him on charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. ***** Statement from his last common law wife (AKA - baby momma) (Mother of Brandon Webber’s baby said she never knew him to be violent) She had fled two DV complaints - yet never knew him to be 'violent". **** More background Gangs in Memphis, Tennessee - Wikipedia **** I find it amazing - the level of dichotomy in the reporting - One one hand the kid was nearly a saint (not withstanding 4 illegitimate kiddos) - a college student without a violent bone in his body.. VS A violent gang-banger that shot someone to steal a car.... [FOX13 learned the Gangster Disciples, a prominent street gang with a large presence in the Memphis area, made a threat toward Mississippi authorities. “This is a very serious threat. It’s very evident by what occurred that night,” said Mike Williams, president of the Memphis Police Association.] Almost like two completely different societies are present.....and at war with each other.
