Should we be sad about Raoul Moat’s death?

By Dark Politricks

Today at Prime Ministers question time David Cameron weighed in on the controversy surrouding the death of Raoul Moat by attacking the recent outpouring of grief that has emerged since his death last week.

“‘It is absolutely clear that Raoul Moat was a callous murderer, full stop, end of story.”

”I cannot understand any wave, however small, of public sympathy for this man.”

”There should be sympathy for his victims and the havoc he wreaked in that community.”

”There should be no sympathy for him.”

This response came after a question from a fellow Conservative MP about the recent RIP Raoul Moat You Legend group which has been setup on Facebook and which has been drawing quite an amount of support from people all over the country concerned over the events surrounding his death after a tense armed stand off televised last week.

Now it’s very hard to find much sympathy with someone who went on a murderous rampage across the country especially someone who has turned out to be a high level police informer. I have no love for grasses and they rest near the bottom of my own personal ladder of shameful occupations just above Policemen. Both grasses and cops are groups of people who escape justice for their own misdeeds whilst at the same time hypocritically ruin other peoples lives by sending them down for crimes that they happily commit themselves.

However much I may dislike Raoul Moat for being a grass his death certainly raises many questions about the conduct of the police who helped end his life in painful agony. Whilst it is still unclear over the precise details of his demise we know enough from witnesses and the live news reports from the night to know that some serious questions require answering.

Raoul Moat had a shotgun rested under his chin in the pouring rain throughout the evening and was threatening to kill himself. Unlike a drunk girlfriend after an angry argument desperate for attention someone who really wanted to kill themselves would just get on and do it. Moat could have pulled the trigger at any time during the stand off but didn’t and therefore this seems to be a clear sign of someone crying out for help rather than a madman desperately wanting to die through a suicide by Police shooting.

The Police admit to tricking Moat into believing they were all in front of him through the clever use of lighting and sound whilst a small team of officers tried to creep up behind him. It was supposedly during this pincer movement that the gunshot went off after Moat realised that the Police had been sneaking up behind him.

The Police admit to firing two Tasers at Moat supposedly in an attempt to prevent him from firing his gun. However Moat’s brother, Uncle and many others believe that it was actually the Taser attack that caused Moat to fire his gun involuntarily and this seems to be backed up by the injuries caused from the gunshot.

If you are going to commit suicide by blowing your own head off with a shotgun you ensure that one shot is all you require to kill yourself in the quickest way possible preferably by blowing your brains out. Raoul Moat did not kill himself with the gunshot that was fired instead he only blew the front part of his face off which is not in any way a kill shot. I cannot imagine the pain and suffering he went through in those hours after this shot was fired as the agony of such a massive and severe injury would be immeasurable and unfortunately for him he took a couple of hours to die.

The XREP taser gun the police used to attack Moat was not licenced by the Home Office. The shotgun projectile travels at the same speed as a bullet and is designed to penetrate clothes and flesh, anyone hit by one would assume they had been shot with a shotgun round at first before experiencing the joy of a few thousand volts jumping through their body for 20 seconds.

Anyone who died from such a Taser shock would have trouble getting a Mortician to find cause of death unless they knew about the Tasering as it leaves little sign of it’s use on the body and many deaths which have resulted after a taser attack from Police have been put down to a case of the spurious medical term Excited delirium.

Excited Delirium is a condition which has been created by Taser International as a cover for the many deaths that have resulted after deployment of this supposedly non lethal weapon. People suffering from this condition display signs of mental illness, super human strength, aggressive behaviour and all the other signs commonly found on any UK high street on a Friday night around 11PM.

Therefore if we are waiting for our kind Police Mortician to return an autopsy report combining Taser and Shotgun as the cause of death we will be waiting a long time. The audio recordings from the nights events seem to reveal that someone, probably Moat, was screaming a hell of a loud agonising cry. Police claim Moat screamed out at them before he fired his shot when he realised they had tricked him and it was at this point the tasers were deployed to try to prevent him from firing his gun. Whether or not this is true I don’t know and I don’t even know if it’s possible to let out a scream if you have just blown the front of your face off but maybe it is.

The fact that Raoul Moat fired his gun after the Tasers were deployed means one of two events occurred:

1. The Police deployed two Tasers on Moat and either the high voltage had no effect on him OR he managed to wait out the 20 seconds without the Police team behind him managing to pounce before he fired his gun shot. The fact that the gunshot was so appallingly bad that it only blew part of his face off and didn’t kill him was purely bad luck for Moat.

2. The Police deployed their Tasers on Moat and the high voltage caused him to spasm or jolt involuntarily and it was during this body spasm that he mistakenly fired his shot gun blowing part of his face off.

I personally think the second option is more likely and the simple fact that the shot didn’t kill him is the key point here. We have had many suicides involving shotguns over the years and you would have to be very very unlucky to attempt suicide with a shotgun to miss yet we are supposedly expected to believe that this is what happened with Raoul Moat.

We know that the Police cannot be trusted to tell the truth on their own accord and usually during situations that involve Police brutality, death or assault it’s only third party evidence that helps resolve the actual series of events.

Tasers are nasty, dangerous and over used weapons that have been put in the hands of a section of society who many people including myself would claim are some of the least mentally equipped people to use such a weapon. Whilst I like the idea that our Police force does not routinely carry guns I also dislike how instead they have been armed to the teeth with supposedly non lethal weapons such as Pepper spray, CS Gas, Tasers and those horrible extendable batons.

Instead of being “last resort” weapons the Taser and all the others are becoming weapons of first resort. I have seen Policemen foaming at the mouth as they attacked an 18 year old girl on the way home from a nightclub for daring to have taken her bottle of drink out the club. A simple refusal to hand over the bottle meant the Policemen who were more than capable of detaining and restraining her without force if they required to (and they did not) instead revealed their batons and took out her legs.

When you give supposedly non lethal weapons to a group of people who all have massive chips on their shoulder and a desire to gain revenge on society for bullied childhoods then you are going to end up with lots of cases of abuse of authority and there is no clearer example than the cops from America. No matter how bad the Police are in the UK, and a large percentage are really bad, you can times that by ten for the USA. We have had Police Tasering bed ridden 86 year old Grannies and Cops shooting family pets for daring to bark when they visit. Add to that the recent cases of brutality at G20 protests and it’s no wonder many people have little respect for our Police.

The many videos I have seen and put up on my site of Police brutality, abuse of power, murder of innocents and attacks on protesters is enough to make anyone who thinks the Police are the cream of society think again. Whilst it’s true that not all Police are the same and there are probably some good cops out there it’s also fair to say that a group of people or company of men is branded in the image of their worst behaved members.

When people say to me “Policemen are only human and make mistakes too” OR “they are only doing their job” I say yes that is true but unlike other occupations the role of Police officer is that of someone who can make life changing decisions on behalf of others every single day.

Everyone chooses the job they do therefore the “just doing a job” argument is a poor excuse as the people who choose to take on this role in society also take on the responsibility to maintain a high personal standard that leaves no room for hypocrisy. I personally know of too many policemen who spend their days ruining people’s lives by arresting them for offences such as drug use, drunk & disorderly, copyright infringements, illegal downloads and so on only to carry out the same acts themselves.

I personally could not live with myself if I had to arrest someone for crimes I know that I commit myself. Crimes I may personally not believe should be illegal yet unfortunately are currently deemed so by the state.  Yet many police do just that every single day of the week. Maybe the only way to solve this dilemma is to create a police force of high tech RoboCops who cannot be tempted by moral decisions posed when a personal choice clashes with the law.

Ideally we would have a reformed legal system that would do away with such stupid laws that are based around “moral” behaviour as morals are relative and in a country led by the concept of liberty for all the only laws that affect personal behaviour should be those that conflict with another persons quality of live e.g laws against violence and theft etc but until that unlikely day arrives we require a police force capable of up-keeping the law of the land in a way that doesn’t drive accusations of hypocrisy and corruption.

Seeing the photos of the Policemen at the scene of Raoul Moat’s death, all snaring and angrily looking at the cameramen gun and taser in hand just shows us how much adrenaline is pumping around the bodies of these cops during events such as the armed stand off.

Armed police train their weapons on fugitive gunman Raoul Moat in Rothbury including one with a stun gun

There was literally no need at all to try to taser Moat into submission or try to sneak up behind him and the only weapon the Police required was time. Moat wasn’t going anywhere, he was tired, wet and hungry and he was also very angry and sad. What the police should have done was just sit it out and talked to Moat. He obviously wasn’t that keen on killing himself as he would have pulled the trigger much earlier therefore there was definitley an opportunity to talk him into giving up peacefully.

Whether it was the unnecessary double Tasering with unlicensed weapons or the attempt to sneak up on Moat from behind that caused his death it seems quite clear the Police paid a large part in Raoul Moat’s death. Whilst  I have no sympathy with a police informing murderer I do demand answers over the Police’s action on that night.

Whether those questions will be answered satisfactorily is another question altogether.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
