LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Police searched for 62-year-old suspect, Floyd Ray Cook, a man with a long criminal past accused of shooting and injuring a Tennessee officer and then firing at a state trooper in Kentucky. He is believed to be on foot.

That is where I stopped reading about the psyop. Smells like an excuse for scripted and staged drills a la Jade Helm, etc. 


In Iowa on Monday, a man killed himself outside a business, shortly after officers responded to shots fired at a Davenport office building that houses a military recruiting center, police said.

Also on Monday, a state trooper fatally shot a man in a confrontation in Frederick, Md., after the sport utility vehicle the man was driving rammed a police cruiser at a gas station, police said. The shooting occurred after a state trooper spotted a Lincoln Navigator with expired registrations and discovered the vehicle had been stolen in an armed robbery Sunday in Baltimore.

A 13-year-old boy who was shot in the face last week at a military base in Washington state has died, and his 17-year-old friend remains in juvenile detention, police said Monday. The boy died Sunday night at a hospital, where he was taken after being shot last Tuesday at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, said Lakewood Police Lieutenant John Unfred.

EDDYVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky State Police trooper wanted to do a favor for the driver he pulled over late at night. The man was driving with a suspended license, so the lawman was arranging for lodging for the man and his fellow travelers, including two children.

Those plans unraveled with tragic results. During the stop on a rural stretch of interstate, the driver took off. What ensued was a chain of events that led to the deaths of the lawman and the driver, authorities said.

Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, 31, was shot during a second stop late Sunday in western Kentucky, Trooper Jay Thomas said Monday.


The driver, Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, 25, of Florissant, Mo., was found after a massive overnight manhunt in a wooded area about 9 miles from the initial stop and less than a mile from where the trooper had been gunned down, Thomas said.

Johnson-Shanks ignored commands to drop his weapon and was shot Monday, Thomas said. He died at a hospital.

Ponder made the initial stop because the car was going 103 miles per hour westbound on Interstate 24, Thomas said.

Investigators were trying to piece together what spurred Johnson-Shanks to flee.

Johnson-Shanks posted a video on Snapchat Monday, after Ponder was slain and before his fatal confrontation with police, Thomas said.


In the video, Johnson-Shanks said he did something he didn’t mean to do and regretted it.

Thomas said it didn’t shed any light on a possible motive.

‘‘I feel for his family,’’ Thomas said. ‘‘But he was an adult. He made bad decisions and he continued to make bad decisions. He made that decision to shoot our trooper.’’

Johnson-Shanks had four passengers: two adult women and two young children.

Neither of the other adults in the car had a driver’s license, Thomas said.

A woman in the car, Johnson-Shanks’s niece, Ambrea R.J. Shanks, 18, of Florissant, was charged with first-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension and taken to jail Monday, police said.

Ponder pursued the car with speeds reaching to 115 miles per hour, Thomas said. The chase ended when the car stopped abruptly, and the front of the cruiser nudged its rear.


‘‘At that point, the suspect leaned out of the driver-side window and fired multiple rounds at the trooper’s car, striking the hood, the windshield, and striking our trooper,’’ Thomas said.

Monday afternoon, several dozen people from law enforcement agencies and the public formed a semi-circle for a vigil on the front lawn of Ponder’s police post. As flags fluttered at half-staff, prayers were said, and visitors walked around afterward shaking the hands of law enforcement officers.

‘‘These guys go out every day and lay their life on the line,’’ said Ronnie Stinson, who participated. ‘‘And people need to respect them for that.’’

Oh, we are, we are!

Ponder was proud to be a Kentucky state trooper, Thomas said....


The one-day wonder quality to that story cemented it as another in a long line of staged and scripted fictions, sorry. 

Until proven otherwise, nothing is to be believed in the propaganda pre$$. If it is not a flat-out lie it is some outrageous distortion. Neither is good.
