BREAKING: Baltimore Woman Killed, Her 5-yo Son Shot After Police Raid for Traffic Warrants

Baltimore, MD – A woman is now dead and a child shot after police raided a home to serve a warrant earlier today.

The woman was identified as 23-year-old Korryn Gaines, and it was stated by police that the child that was injured was a 5-year-old boy.

At 9:30 am, police arrived at Carriage Hill Apartments where the woman lived, and soon after police learned that there was a gun in the house, so they brought in greater force to deal with the situation. A standoff began which lasted throughout most of the day until the police decided to raid the home with guns blazing, killing Gaines and injuring the child. According to police, there was also a man in the apartment who attempted to flee, but was immediately captured while attempting to escape with a 1-year-old child.

The county made an announcement about the raid just after 5pm.

At a press conference hours later, police said that Gaines pointed a gun at them and threatened to shoot as they entered the home. Police opened fire first, and then she returned fire with two shots, but it was not mentioned whether any of her shots connected with their intended targets. The police have been very careful not to specify whether it was them or Gaines who injured the child, but it is obvious with the information available that it was likely the police. The police also claimed that Gaines pointed her weapon at them and threatened to kill them, but none of this can actually be verified, the only evidence is the statement from police.

The police are refusing to reveal the most important detail of the case, which is why they were there in the first place and what the warrant was for. At a press conference police stated that she had failed to appear in court on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, however, this is not entirely honest.

A quick search of the Maryland Judiciary Case Records shows that she was initially pulled over for littering, and then was given the other charges because of a resulting altercation between her and the officer. Reports have surfaced later in the week indicating that she was also charged with having an expired license plate, which she replaced with a piece of cardboard as many sovereign citizens often do, although she does not officially belong to the sovereign citizen movement.

Gaines then failed to appear in court. All of these charges are incredibly petty reasons to raid someone’s home in the first place, in spite of the fact that her actions during the raid may have been reckless. However, it does seem that the behavior that police claim she exhibited during the raid would be extremely out of character for her.

Many of her friends have taken to social media to voice particularly concerning statements on this incident. According to one of her friends, Gaines was video recording the police when they were at her apartment, but then all of her social media accounts were mysteriously deleted.

23 y/o Korryn Gaines BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A woman was killed and a child was injured following an armed standoff with Baltimore County Police in Randallstown on Monday, authorities said. Officers were serving an arrest warrant at Carriage Hill Apartments, located in the unit block of Sulky Court, about 9:30 a.m. when they encountered the armed woman, who had a juvenile with her, according to police. The standoff carried on late into the afternoon as authorities negotiated with the woman to end the situation peacefully until, at some point, the woman was fatally shot by officers and the child was shot, police said. Paramedics rushed the child to the hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the extremities, according to police. #ripkorryn

RANDALLSTOWN, Md. —Baltimore County police said officers fatally shot an armed woman Monday who was with a child in a barricade situation in Randallstown. The child was being treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound. Police said detectives went to the unit block of Sulky Court in Randallstown at 9:25 a.m. to serve an arrest warrant on a woman. "When our detectives arrived at the scene, they found that the woman was armed and there was a juvenile in the apartment with her. So at that point, our detectives backed off, not only to call additional resources, but to ensure the safety of the community and bring a safe resolution to this incident," Baltimore County police Cpl. John Wachter said. Wachter said specialized resources were deployed to the scene. "Our goal right now is to make sure the community is safe and to make sure this is brought to a safe conclusion," Wachter said. The woman has not yet been identified. The condition of the child was not yet released. Witnesses at the scene saw numerous police cars, under cover officers and SWAT respond to the scene. No further information was immediately released.

    EDIT: What I said before would have sparked a riot and gotten me arrested. So I’ll just say: ANGRY.

      No… come on man, you don’t need to worry. We live in America! Where the cops are here to protect your first amendment ri-

      Sorry, couldn’t say that with a straight face.

        Do you idiots know anything that isn’t so? SCOTUS ruled years ago, cops do not protect, guards do. Cops enforce the law.

        • Adas Kiezun

          Doesn’t make it right emaleroland. Can you get out of your head out of your own ass for a second here. Tell SCOTUS to do the same while you’re at it.

    • kcgoat

      some innocent cop is going to get killed for this ,by some crazed lunatic, whole story does not make any sense.

      • John Doe

        Its because this site is bullshit. Here is the real story. They don’t raid for traffic warrants. http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/08/01/woman-dead-child-injured-after-armed-standoff-with-baltimore-county-police/

        • kcgoat

          first thing the police spokesmen lied ,second you know what a shotgun wound looks like on a child

          • emaleroland

            You’re all over the place. Light somewhere. What gauge was the shotgun? Was it directly at the child or off center? Did she have other weapons. Was she hiding behind the child while shooting at the popo? How about we wait for the report and then bitch?

        • emaleroland

          Nothing like the BS presented here. This site blows

        • duckduck go

          lol you believe what the police are telling you lol. for all we know they kicked her door down and she had a gun because she lives in a shitty area. some people are scared that people can break in at anytime! if someone kicked in my door I would have a gun as well!

          • John Doe

            Yes I believe it because I work that agency. I know the real story and this website is not telling it. Open up your eyes and see that all this hate mongering and lies is not helping this country. Lies like this website spews is just to sell advertising. You really think this website sent out a reporter to get “the real story”? Us Police don’t wake up in the morning looking to kill people. I have worked a high crime area for over 10 years and never had to shoot anyone. However, my job is getting more dangerous because websites like this cause people to believe that Police are out to hurt them.

            If this woman surrendered and allowed Officers to arrest her for a Failure to Appear warrant she would have went to the courthouse and get a new court date. Due to it being a bench warrant for missing court it would have had a low bail amount. At the new court date she probably would have been given Probation before Judgement or a fine. Her crimes were very minor, but the Judge still issued a bench warrant because she failed to appear in court. Despite the petty crimes the Officers had to serve the warrant, resisting isnt a reason to walk away from the situation because then everyone would resisting Police to avoid facing responsibility for their actions. That would be like an armed person walking into your place of work and telling you to stop doing your job, you just going to say “ok” and not doing anything about them? I think not.

            We are in this together, this is America and we are all Americans first. We need to stop letting the media doing whats its doing. Its cause issues in our communities and tearing this country apart.

        • Romi Elnagar

        • TheThinker1958

          a policeman gave an interview and he explain how black people are target almost exclusively because they are afraid of arresting the wrong “white people” (son of judges or important people)… that’s an easy way to give the impression that blacks are causing more problems.

          • Mike

            Yeah, right. FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2014 shows more than 4,200 blacks arrested for more than 8,000 murders committed in the U.S. that year. Idiots like you blame whitey for blacks killing blacks at disproportionate rates. You are a big part of the problem, moron, and definitely not a part of the solution. Please do us taxpayers a favor and do not breed.

          • TheThinker1958

            nobody is talking about civilians killing civilians. If you don’t understand the problem stop writing here. You have the Authorities going to “solve” problems and they end escalating the problem and the final action is to start shooting.

            here: watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5nPyf-0UMc

            do you understand that Justice these days is catching a “suspect” and then giving him 2 options: keep saying he is innocent and get 30 years or “confess” and be out of jail in 8 years. I black kid was in jail for 3 years for no reason (he didn’t stole a stupid backpack. the person that accuse him withdraw the accusation). He ended killing himself. I bet that is 1 of your 4,200 arrested black people. Police is cutting corners everywhere and the process is not fair or just at all.

            you already concluded that blacks are all bad. so I guess your solution is starting shooting black people on sight. that should reduce the numbers you have… you moron

          • Mike

            I do understand the problem Stinker, and it’s black-on-black crime and the “community’s” love of the “gangsta” lifestyle. Also its love of the welfare system and life on the gov’t plantation with “dad” nowhere in sight.

            You clearly don’t understand the problem. Keep blaming the police while doing the same thing over and over and keep wondering why the rest of society watches and just shakes its head.

            Hey, maybe you can do some more rioting, looting, and burning down your local stores, then whine about no jobs, too.

          • RJ O’Guillory

            Many of your …”cultural observations”…may contain a grain of truth. Black-on-black crime is statistically higher than other race-based, or religion-based comparisons. Yet, you fail to address the inherent issues of racism in our society, the lack of productive jobs since the government screwed us with NAFTA, CAFTA, etc.,crushing poverty, poor education, drug addiction and gang-affiliation-requirements for surviving in our inner cities. The issue at hand is really the continued development of The Police State, the militarization of law enforcement and the abject failure on the part of police to use common sense, deescalation techniques and to respect The Constitution. If you do not think that minority, poor communities of this country are not targeted for “enhanced” law enforcement… you have not been paying attention. With regard to your “welfare system” comments, perhaps you should speak to your political leadership and the industrial elite who have moved 100 million jobs off shore…let in millions of illegal aliens and kept real wages at 1970’s levels. Your government is corrupt to it’s core, and your police are simply armed goons who enforce blatantly unconstitutional “laws” that protect individuals, corporations and monopolies from being over-thrown. They target the poor, the minority and the helpless to keep them in their place. Grow up.
            RJ O’Guillory

          • Mike

            Funny, but outlawing murder has nothing to do with racism. Morons like you play the race card, because it’s easier than dealing with the real problems, which the “community” creates all on its own.

            You blame NAFTA, which Clinton signed, the “police state,” etc., But all the problems begin and end in the black community. You morons need to pull your head out of the past and get with the rest of us here in the present.

          • Virginia Phillips

            You do realize 80% of welfare goes to whites right?

          • Mike

            Wrong again, ignorant one. Blacks on welfare outnumber whites, and whites make up a much larger percentage of the population. Also, you do realize white taxpayers pay for the vast majority of it, right?

            Wrong honey, here are the facts:According tohttp://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_percentage_of_people_in_US_are_on_welfare
            http://www.chacha.com/question/what-percentage-of-people-on-welfare-are-white,-black,-or-hispanic

            – 29 million people are on welfare
            – 39% white: 11,661,000
            – 38% black: 11,362,000

            According tohttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_United_States:
            – US population: 313,544,041
            – White: 72.4%: 227,005,885
            – Black: 12.6%: 39,506,549

            Math time!:

            Whites: 11.661,000 / 227,005,885 * 100 = 5.13%
            Blacks: 11,362,000 / 39,506,549 * 100 = 28.75%

            That means the total percentage of all white people in america on welfare is: 5.13%

            While the total percentage of all black people in america on welfare is: 28.75%

          • Le Hunt

            Read my message below. 39% of welfare goes to whites, 38% to blacks. Only a bit more than 5% of whites are on welfare, while over a quarter of blacks are.

            yes.. I worked for the system for the past 17 years. And I laugh everytime someone makes a comment.. Ohhh it’s the Blacks that are on Welfare….

            Pure projection on your part, tootsie. I cited facts, and you resort to playing the race card and vile behavior.

          • Mike

            By black design, sure. It’s called the “gangsta” lifestyle that’s so often lauded by the “community” and in black pop culture. It’s also why so many run around with their pants down and butts out. You are one blind, ignorant fool and a huge part of the problem.

          • Drew

            If the police rolled around white neighborhoods pulling over people and finding excuses to search them at every turn, you would see just as many white people being locked up on petty crimes as black people get locked up for petty crimes. The problem is clearly in the policing. Furthermore, because of our culture of ignorance, that has been started by the right-wing, we’ve felt the need to underfund every social program that we have in the United States that used to make us great. Please keep your bullshit platitudes to yourself, you racist fuck

          • Mike

            No, if whites committed petty crimes as much as blacks, you’d see us getting arrested and incarcerated at far greater rates. Instead, we get educations, jobs, pull up our pants and enunciate properly. We also don’t glorify the “gangsta” lifestyle, unlike the “community.” Don’t do crimes, you won’t get locked up or have so many bad encounters with police of all colors. Or, you can continue being an idiot and keep having the same thing happen over and over and wonder why.

          • Martin

            the #’s don’t figure that way…

          • They are brainwashed. Being fed lives over and over and now they defend those lies. You want to know why the arrest rate is so high in black neighborhoods? Because those are the neighborhoods police are taught and trained to target. This is commonly known within the police department, in fact, it is encouraged. You think blacks are the only ones committing murders? I’m sorry, but those stats are skewed by the same system of corruption that is feeding the public these lies.

      • LKNMRE

        So littering is a crime worthy of execution?

        • Michael Schindler

          littering wasn’t what got her in the spot she was in….barricading herself in her house with a gun with her child was-heck even her man bailed on her…..Sad sad event, tragic…a young life gone, kid’s mom-less,and years of therapy for the son…..

          • Redvirgo

            It was her damn house… The man was a coward.

          • Michael Schindler

            you obviously didn’t read any of the articles

          • LKNMRE

            Littering is not a ticket that leads to a warrant. She most likely barricaded herself inside because an entire group of cops ready to shoot scared her and as a woman who was VERY outspoken about gun violence, she knew there was a huge chance she’d lose her life if she tried to defend herself….and look where she still ended up.

          • Mike

            She had a traffic warrant, and they were there to arrest her boyfriend on a felony warrant, moron. She had a shotgun and fired at the police. That’ll earn deadly return fire every time, and good riddance to her.

          • LKNMRE

            I don’t listen to half-ass arguments from racists.

          • Micheal Brooklyn Olivero

            how is it racists she fired a shotgun at police, they returned fire and she lost. That’s not racist thats the truth and the facts.
            Moral of the story don’t shoot a gun at the cops it’ll end badly regardless of what color you are.

          • Gary Goosby

            Like I explained to the other “IDIOT” holding a five year old in one arm and a shotgun in the other…..I don’t think so……

          • LKNMRE

            What’s racist is saying “good riddance.” What’s racist is looking for a justification for death. Cops manage to de-escalate situations where white people shoot guns at them ALL THE TIME. If I ACTUALLY BELIEVED that she fired a gun, which I don’t, her child still did not deserve to be shot. Cops lie.

          • YourMomIsMyType

          • CrazyTrain99

            Yeah, because the police have been incredibly open and honest about what actually happened during these incidents so far. Do you even listen to yourself when you talk, or do you just vomit up words and hope they form a coherent sentence?

          • Gary Goosby

            what planet are you visiting from?…………

          • Romi Elnagar

            What an ugly thing to say. A child is now an orphan, and a beautiful young woman with vitality and spark is dead.
            Have you no soul whatsoever?

          • Mike

            You are a moron. Nothing “beautiful” about that woman or the baby she stupidly chose to orphan. Although, I must admit, the child likely now stands a real chance of escaping the ghetto, now that waste of a human being is gone from this Earth. Pull your head out of your hind end, moron. Just because a woman had a kid doesn’t mean she was “beautiful” or even a good person. Clearly, she was neither, and definitely was not a fit mother.

          • Gary Goosby

            you must of never fired a shotgun, the kick would of knocked the weapon out of her hand ,…making it impossible to fire.. what.. twice ?
            I guess that makes you an “IDIOT”!!!!!!

          • Joshua Pabelick

            if you cant fire a shotgun twice thats more of an issue with your body than anything

Facts you ignore is poverty leads to crime, and housing segragation in the 1950s housing bomb, creating ghettos. And do you know how large quantities of firearms where brought to black neighborhoods? In the 1960s The Black Panthers (which im sure you consider on par with radical islam but somehow dont see the Westboro connection), was started by Huey Newton and others to protect black neighborhoods from police brutality (and this was before gang violence mind you) and for black people to legally express their 1st amendment right. The Black Panthers were targeted by the FBI among others and leaders ended up dead or in jail. With them gone there was enough guns and weapons for a miltia, quite literally, obviously. These guns and cheap drugs fueled money in a place where desperation was common. Combine that with a drug epidemic, thanks to Oliver North and no one else, and almost no opportunity for a few decades, while cops practice Broken Window Policing, causing tension between the public and those therr to protect and SERVE. Police kill plenty of unarmed white men too, its just not good for american media. Cops kill anyone if they feel threaten, and some of them obviously arent emotionally or psychologically fit, or even physically trained enough someplaces. You don’t taxi drivers shooting people like you do cops, but around 14 patrolmen die per year compared to 18 annual fatalities of taxi drivers. But I bet all those taxi drivers are gangbangers or whatever your simple mind can come up with next. Hopefully you can read this many word in one sitting mike, I doubt it though.

          • Joshua Pabelick

            Littering is a ticket that can lead to a warrant when combined with her other tickets. Had she paid what she owed this all would have been avoided

          • LKNMRE

            So, not paying fines is a justification for death? Good to know.

          • Joshua Pabelick

            Not paying your fines and then pulling a gun is a justifiable killing yes. Had she not pulled the gun i seriously doubt she would have died

          • LKNMRE

            So cops are incapable of de-escalating a situation with an armed person? When there’s an entire team of them and only one of 5’2″ her–apparently also holding a child?

            I’m German and I can tell you that Schindler is not a Jewish name. It’s not a Nazi name, but it’s certainly German. Oskar Schindler was a German industrialist that saved the lives of over 1,000 Jews during the holocaust. And his surname is derived from his family occupation. I’m not trying to burst your bubble or start a debate, but that’s the truth.

          • Romi Elnagar

            Being a Jew doesn’t preclude a person from being a Nazi. Just look at how the Israelis are doing exactly the same thing to the Palestinians that police here are doing to blacks.
            In fact, many police in this country get TRAINING IN ISRAEL in how to OCCUPY a ghetto (or, in the case of Palestine, the Gaza Strip).
            It’s called GENOCIDE, and the victims have become the victimizers.
            So, next time you want to drag out that old tired victim meme, just remember that a few people don’t fall for that nonsense, any more than they fall for the police lies about being fired upon first and all that crap.

        • raz-0

          Serving a warrant for failure to appear is not abusing their authority. From the court records, it appears that such a warrant would be valid.

          One can argue the merit of the original charges, but in general being a no-show in court will cause a series of events to unfold that will culminate in law enforcement trying to find you and make you show up for trial, and nobody in the country will find your civil rights have been violated when you then decide to pick a fight with the police over that.

          You may be pissed, you may have moral and ethical reasons for being pissed, but the law does not support you being pissed for this situation as currently reported.

            You obviously suck at reading. The warrant was due for failure to appear. What they failed to appear for were resisting arrest charges. Those were the result of bad behavior at a traffic stop.

      lol you must not know a lot about how these things work. It is extremely common that traffic violations, parking violations, seat belt violations etc. can result in either A. a warrant or B. suspension of your license. If the cops were there to serve her a warrant for her arrest they did so according to common law and practice. Now if she had a gun i would say calling in back up was a good idea. Not sure why your confused on this to be honest

        Yes, but is it worth killing someone over a traffic violation.

          lol you still don’t get it it she didn’t die over a ticket she died because she pulled a gun on them. The cops were there to issue a warrant it’s not like they drove there with intent to kill her

          • tz1

            They did drive there with the intent to kill her if she didn’t “comply”. Forget the Magna Charta and Castle Doctrine. We live in the USSA. Writs of assistance must be honored (like national security letters). Every command of anyone with a badge is “lawful” even when they rape you.

          • tz1

            Perhaps a spelling test ought to be required to vote, I assume you mean posse.

            No, but they should get a warrant for a crime sufficient to make it reasonable. One of the police shootings was excused because the may (or may not) have been involved in a robbery, but it was NOT a felony stop, the cop went to the window, saw a gun, and executed the driver.
            When traffic tickets can be escalated into a capital crime, there is no point in voting. We already live in a police state where you can be murdered on a whim. She was not a threat to anyone not aggressively threatening her. Badges don’t grant special rights. Why when they have badges they can pull guns and kill people, but if I did the same thing I would be in the wrong?

    ‘A quick search of the Maryland Judiciary Case Records shows that she was initially pulled over for littering, and then was given the other charges because of a resulting altercation between her and the officer.’ <— …..and then, in the next paragraph, they say the behavior to which police attest would seem to be 'out of character ' for her….am I the only person who sees glaring contradictions between these 2 statements? Are prior altercations with officers not indicative of precisely this type of alleged behavior?

    • Jamie Hall

      These days, the simple condition of having a pulse and having the ability to recognize bullshit when you see it is reason enough for cops to create a confrontation where there doesn’t need to be one. Cop: “Oh, you still believe in the Constitution, do you? Well I’ll change your tune real quick.” The language always varies from one situation to the next. But the demeanor of the cop(s) involved is almost invariably the same. Do yourself a favor and do a little research.

      that is not an impediment these days. The guy shot a couple of weeks ago was unarmed and explaining he had a gun inside the car, as require by law, and he was shot anyway.

      Irrelevant. Sadly…

      White Militia members pointed rifles at police, openly announced their intent to kill them, and only one of their members were shot during an altercation; all others were arrested, alive and unharmed.

      In Michigan, old white man holds AK in public and officers takes the time to talk him down and take the gun away safely; no one gets shot.

      In San Diego, white man with 9mm points it at officers, small children, helicopters, and at himself and the police shoot him in the stomach, non-lethal. They don’t proceed to make sure he’s dead with more shots, instead, they call him with a cell phone to talk him into surrendering. He was arrested.

      In Tennessee, white man was arrested for waving a loaded gun during a road rage situation. He exited his vehicle with the pistol in his pants and confronted a man and his son. His car was filled with empty beer cans and a revolver and the man refused to exit the vehicle and resisted arrest. Do I need to note that he was arrested alive?

      Also in Tennessee, white woman in body armor lead police on a chase while shooting at officers, innocent bystanders, and their cars. Arrested without a single injury.

      New Hampshire; White man on probation shot a BB gun at two officers who were making a traffic stop. Arrested alive.

      Idaho; 2 White men shot up a Walmart with BB guns while intoxicated. Arrested without incident.

      Pennsylvania, White man pulled a gun on officers after he had driven his car into a ditch. Police talked him into dropping his loaded weapon and they had to break his window to extract him and arrest him. No shots fired.

      Now that we have some fun-facts, I’ll let everyone else tell you about Tamir Rice, Kajieme Powell, John Crawford III, Lance Tamayo, and many others.

      • dufas_duck

        Plus all the unarmed people shot in the back that no one hears about…..

        • Tyler

          you mean 3% of all police interactions?

          • Aaron Parr

            Do you realize that even 1% would be much too high to be acceptable?

          • dufas_duck

            Well, according to the DOJ, there is, on average, 62.9 million police interactions per year. At 3%, that would be 1,887,000 people shot dead by the police. I don’t think so.

            The DOJ statistics state that an average of 1000 people are killed by police per year. Of that 1000, an average of 65% were armed and deemed dangerous or threatening. The remaining 35% include those who were beaten to death, choked to death, or otherwise killed in some other manner than being shot. In the past, all these ‘iffy’ deaths were covered by police policy. It is only lately that these kills are getting closer scrutiny and many deaths, except in the eyes of the police, are found to be unacceptable.

            My question to you is, how many wrongful deaths by the police do you accept as being OK and are you willing to give the police a pass for some ‘oops’ or mistake??

      • patriot156

        While i get what your after you’re incorrect in stating the Militia group that was protesting Govt over reach in Oregon pointed guns at the cops. No where did that happen. No where did they threatened to do so they merely made the point they’d defend themselves if needs be. I do get your comparison though that whites are treated a bit better, but whites get killed far more than blacks.

        Case in point Yantis a Idaho rancher called by the cops to come and help put down his bull that was hit on the roadway. he goes with his wife and one other to do so and while in the operation of shooting the bull after the cops unsuccessful shot the animal many times. Cop for some reason grabs the guys arm, his gun goes off and the two cops unload on him right then and there.

        I support all those mentioned Brown Yantis, Crawford, Rice, Castile, Lavoy, Sterling, all of them.

        Not flaming you just pointing out some stuff. This is and should be a tyranny issue not a race issue. OR better yet a system wide Govt Overreach issue.

        • Aaron Parr

          Except that it is a race issue AND a tyranny issue.

          • patriot156

            In some ways yes but I say or believe it’s mostly a tyranny issue and should be treated as such. Obama’s divisiveness is what’s making it a race issue, but since whites get shot and killed more than blacks even if in some cases blacks in same situations as whites might get shot it should be treated as a tyranny issue.

        • lolatyou

          Actually, the militia did in fact have two armed standoffs with police and police killed one of them over it. I watched the video myself, so them being unarmed and merely making threats would be tough to dispute. They actually occupied the wildlife office for several weeks. You don’t do that without weapons to keep law enforcement at bay.

          • patriot156

            No that’s not what I’d said. I said they never pointed guns at the feds or cops. You’re right they occupied the Refuge for weeks, but up until the last few days they were free to come and go. During those weeks Bundy went around to the ranchers in the area trying to get them to tear up their BLM contracts. Which some did. They were making headway but because Burns is a company town Govt owned they were against them for the most part, but some did support their cause as well. Yes they had gun and yes on the day Lavoy was murdered they had guns in the vehicle’s but at no time did they before that day or during that day did any of them point guns at the Feds and OSP. Did you happen to see Paula Cox’s side? or her version of the ambush? There was no stand off as you say. They’d stopped Bundy in the Car behind, and Lavoy. But during the first encounter Payne who was in the back crawled out and gave up, but the Feds or OSP had shot at them then. Lavoy upon being shot at at least once took off to try and make it to the sheriff because he knew that sheriff would not let the Feds arrest him.

            The feds shot at him upon coming to the snow bank and then shot at Lavoy upon leaving the vehicle you can hear it in Cox’s phone,at least twice if not more. Lavoy had his hands up while exiting and what you see as what looks like reaching is him stumbling and already being shot. The autopsy shows he was shot in the stomach and chest which would support others statements that he was reaching for his side upon already being shot. After his murder the others in the vehicle are screaming while the Govt is still shooting at them. At no time were they ever holding guns on the Feds or O.S.P., during that time and after the Feds couldn’t get them to react like the wanted they finally relented and let them give up. No there was never a full on stand off because for weeks Bundy and the leaders traveled to burns and around the area. It wasn’t until Bitch Gov Kate said to do something then FBI and O.S.P. started coming in closer, but not until then.
            This was not like Waco because again they were free to come and go.
            PS. Lavoy was also shot in the back

            Those links are for a different situation. Those are for the Bundy Ranch stand off that happened in 2014 not 2016 and yes there were some people who did aim guns at BLM Then but Not at the Oregon stand off.

            And no on the last one either it says supporters may have made threats not Cliven.

    and what this was all over a few dollars then- why didn’t they just send her a fine in the mail- it- originally- was littering after all wasn’t it– feels like alices restaurant- except the mother rapists and father rapists- in this song- are the police

  • TheThinker1958

    Police were worried the woman can harm the baby, so they managed to get inside and shot the baby themselves… there you go. I don’t think Policemen are racist. I think they are cowards that will shoot anybody before they are threaten with a paper cut. Shoot first, shoot again, a little more just in case, and then ask questions.

          The raid was NOT because of the traffic violation. It was because of the shotgun pointed at them when they tried to serve the warrant.

        Even if you comply you are still in danger. That has been proven time and time again. They were reckless. they are the trained professionals. Why go in guns blazing? Why weren’t any of the cops going through the back door? where is the body cam footage? All officers on scene by coincidence have broken body cams? All of her social media accounts were deleted. Not just the one she posted on, meaning they weren’t sure where and what she posted. You just believe anything anyone says to you right? Can you not form your own conclusion based on the thin facts of events? She had a traffic offense but you bring a swat team to serve it???????? That alone is fishy.

    What the hell is wrong with our leadership? When answering this question, we must realize there is nothing wrong with our leadership because this is what they both enjoy and are paid under the table to continue.

    If we don’t educate the poor and we don’t have any decent work for them, then they are most profitable as criminals and the justice system can’t possibly grow without more and more criminals.

    If the poor refuse to be criminals, then just say they littered or had a broken tail light and decided to pull a weapon for a one against twenty with armored vehicles shooting match. Makes total sense to white racists who are also just used by the system because they don’t trust anyone and are afraid of everything and stockpile weapons as they wait for the return of Jesus who somehow is coming back to kill all the unarmed, unafraid, trusting people.

      they were there to serve traffic warrants. she pointed a gun at them. then held her son hostage there was even a video on twitter of her loading the shot gun infront of her son. ya shes a real class act.

  • Michael Schindler

    so (I read the article-I hope everyone did) the cops served a warrant (doesn’t matter initially for what, she failed to pay then appear in court)….then there was a barricaded standoff and a gun involved-and kids being used as cover…Do you really think that Baltimore of all areas is going to have trigger happy cops that want to shoot a 5 year old? (that answer is no) Question of the day-Do you really think it’s a good idea to be armed and barricade yourself from the police-like what, they are just going to go away? People need to start using their god given senses and stop blaming the police for EVERYTHING-THIS could of and should have been avoided-by the adults in the room with the kids…

    • patriot156

      Don’t know but the last time I heard you don’t go raiding for petty arrest warrants, especially what sounds like a bench warrant. Of which they can pick one up at any time. You cop lovers don’t get what’s happening in Merica now days’. This kind of crap at this magnitude didn’t happen before 9/11. Also nothing in the article said she was using the kid as a shield it just said they were there. Yes! they do cops more today than ever want action! I’ve heard videos of cops on their way to a raid saying things Like yeah hope I see some action etc.. OR all kinds of foul language coming from them. SO yes now days cops by far more are looking for action, and don’t care as you so put it.

      In the last days love for one another shall wax cold. Biblical prophecy and that does include cops.

    • Althea Ann

      “Do you really think that Baltimore of all areas is going to have trigger happy cops”… Considering that my good friend, an unarmed white male, was shot dead by the Baltimore police in his own bed, after his roommate made a false complaint against him following an argument, why yes, I DO think that the Baltimore PD are quite trigger-happy.

    • PJ London

      Why did you not read the article?
      They went there loaded, expecting a confrontation and expecting to face a (OMG) ‘gun’.
      How did they serve the warrant, do you even know that they actually had one, or did they go with a door bashing aggressive BS that caused her to be peedoff with them in the first place?
      Another Sandra Bland.
      You only have to comply when cops follow the law. When they break the law, as they do in nearly every case, they get all aggressive when you point it out.

      4. Why was SWAT called and not a hostage negation squad?

      The cops did serve a warrant, but what kind of municipality serves warrants on minor offenses? Usually they suspend your license, leave the bench warrant pending and when you get stopped or I’d you are then arrested.

      So, you serve the warrant, you see there is a problem why don’t the police back off? She’s not going anywhere, you cordon off the area and attempt to reason. I under stand that there was a standoff, but it seems like there was no attempt to get her to deescalate. Thrusting her is not helping the situation, so why not try to talk it out?

    I think its been proven beyond a shadow of any doubt we’re all the same except for those who hide behind the law and judge themselves by their intentions and others by their actions.

  • David Hopper

    Once you realize cops can and do lie, then yeah, this story makes no sense and is fishy.

    It is amazing that everything outside the words of police officers is mostly unavailable for us to understand what exactly happened. Social media videos have been deleted. Body cam videos are nowhere to be found, especially in a city where due to recent issues, there’s been a great push for them to use them. The reason why people should be more suspicious of cops is because they seem to do whatever is in their power to maintain good publicity and make it as difficult as they can for the public to make objective judgments about their actions in tragedies.

  • Chuck C.

    So now even ARMED blacks aiming a shotgun at police are deemed automatically innocent by sites such as this? That’s not free thought. That’s blatant propaganda. Apparently “the Talk,” which is supposed to teach simple compliance with lawful police commands is another myth. Police have a right and a duty to serve warrants when applicable and citizens have the right to fight those warrants in court, not ignore them or defy them with armed resistance.

    • Sensual A

      In the Walter Scott shooting the police also said the man he killed was struggling with him for his gun. The video of a man hidden in the bushes revealed that the cop shot him in the back while running 50 feet away. If the police are sure what they did was right then why not release the body cam footage and the footage the victim recorded herself which was deleted?

  • adeba

    The story is horrific on its own merits. Turning “serve an arrest warrant” into “raid for traffic warrants” is inexcusable and misleading clickbait.

    So the article says it seems that the behavior that police claim she exhibited during the raid would be extremely out of character for her. But yet when she was pulled over for littering she was then given other charges because of a resulting altercation between her and the officer.

    Disgraceful! What will be the excuse for shooting a mom holding her baby? Good police need to speak out against the unnecessary killing of civilians. Did they try to deescalate the women before shooting, especially when they saw her baby. I don’t believe for a minute that she was shooting at police. She had her child. Even if she did, police are suppose to be trained to deescalate situation, especially when innocent people could be harmed.

    In Florida they send you a letter after they suspend your license. They don’t send the SWAT team to pick you up for a civil matter. With that said, there has to be more to the story. I’m guessing the guy who attempted to flee played a major part in the standoff (warrants out the ass), and the toddler was more than likely injured by a flash bang, not a gunshot. She could have easily walked outside and it would have ended peacefully. But once the police have to breach; everyone is a target.

  • Cycloneous

    I am not saying Gaines is a saint or angel by any means, but when police say this was done for her safety, shutting down her accounts, I am suspect this was not done for her safety. It was done to hide the fact the police wanted to go in guns blazing. I question the civilian police version of events; I really do, especially from MD.

    It is a sad state of affairs when we question whether the civilian police are actually telling the truth. Me? Honestly? I do not think the civilian police are telling the truth. The reason why is because if they were afraid for her safety they would have changed tactics, and done so knowing that she had her son with her.

    Also, how is it plausible to have a long gun in one aiming and firing, with a toddler in another arm. That is what the civilian police are saying happened. It is so contrived and defies logic that is what the civilian police are going with. Do these civilian police thugs think we’re that stupid?! Obviously they’ve had too many donuts because like the donuts they’ve been eating, their story is full of holes!

  • swageyamatobiyolo

    i heard that she used her child as a human shield and threatened the police before firing at them. now im suspecting that what i heard earlier wasnt true..
    she definitely shouldnt have had her home raided over something so superfluous.. but at the same time, she shouldve known better than to shoot first, that gives police the excuse to fire back in defense. Assuming the police were telling the truth about what happened….

  • Ronda Dudley Cantwell

    I suppose she should have complied with the police and NOT used her son as a shield! That poor boy was taught hate by his mother! He didn’t have a chance with her and her so called entitlement as she showed in the video as she was pulled over.. Disgusting racist woman. Let’s hope her son learns right from wrong now instead of hate!
    She never complied with the law and talked of how they were going to have to kill her..
    Careful what you ask for.

    It’s always sad to lose a life and to have harm come to a child ! ~ I do believe that one of the reasons that incidents like this one are not common in our so-called “white” neighborhoods is because whites are more likely to be compliant with the police, especially over such minor situations as a traffic warrant … the story clearly states she was being defiant, why ? She should have “sucked it up” and answered for her “minor” infraction(s) ~ the longer she refused to co-operate with the police, the more nervous they were becoming, no doubt wondering just what it is that she could possibly be hiding, I mean, try to put yourself in their shoes … it is certainly important for the police to address warrants like these, otherwise, what would be the point of issuing citations … can you imagine the chaos in America with people taking every advantage possible by ignoring the laws if there were no fear of ever having to answer for them ?

    `Let me educate you, and this is very simple and what I told my kids:

    1. You don’t have the right to resist arrest.
    2. You don’t have the right to not show ID when asked.
    3. You don’t have the right to say “Don’t touch me”
    4. You don’t have the right to flee.
    5. You don’t have the right to protect yourself from the police.

    Ok, Here it is. This will ALWAYS work:
    1. In a car, place hands at 10 and 2 oclock.
    Say Yes officer, here is my license and proof of insurance.

    If you are being placed under arrest for an outstanding warrant or EVEN A MISTAKEL
    1. Place your hands behind your back. Keep them loose
    2. Say “Yes officer, no trouble from me, thank you”

    Not a very good job of investigating the facts here. The warrant was served on her because the man who is also living at the same address had a warrant for a much more serious crime, and assault. The police were going to serve a warrant on him, and as long as they were there they were required to serve the one on her. They could not simply ignore her warrant.

    There is video showing HER saying that they would not take her alive, and instructing her son to fight the police, therefore, everyone saying this is out of character should be corrected by the video evidence. She was confrontational as hell, and endangered her childred, did not recognize any authority or any responsibility to society as pertains to driving a vehicle etc. In short she was a liberal brainwashed nutball sandwich, and reaped the rewards for listening to her liberal brainwashing mentors and BLM.

    Wow after reading through some of the comments … I am saddened by the way we behave and treat each other… We are supposed to love n look out for each other…
    THIS ISNT ABOUT BLACK N WHITE ….. THIS IS ABOUT POLICE BRUTALITY…… AND THE FACT THAT THEY USE HUMANS FOR THIER TARGET PRACTICE…. THESE COPS WHO USE BRUTE FORCE OR SHOOT WHEN IT IS NOT NEEDED IS JUST AS GUILTY AS US REGULAR CITIZENS…… AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE….
    Seriously people you have the world at your fingertips…. GOOGLE it is an amazing tool… Please use it and just study police brutality and how many people actually die at the hands of law enforcement….. Vrs how many police actually die from everyday Joe’s n Jane’s…
    Please learn to be kind to each other…
    N stop the ignorance of hate….
    Honestly how can you hate someone you don’t know…. N also if you hate that much it’s because deep down inside u truly love….. Love drives hate.. Think about it…
    We are all adults really do we have to be so negative and disrespectful to each other ?
