‘I’m Going to Shoot Him in the Penis,’ Says Cop Before Executing Camper

An Albuquerque police officer who killed a homeless man last March expressed his desire to shoot him in the penis, new dash cam footage reveals.

The video, obtained by KOB4 News, details a conversation between APD Officer Keith Sandy and another officer shortly before the fateful shooting of James Boyd.

During the conversation, Sandy can be heard discussing his desire to shoot Boyd, who he refers to as a “f*cking lunatic,” in the penis with a shot gun.

“For this f***ing lunatic? I’m going to shoot him in the penis with a shotgun here in a second,” Sandy said.

Only two hours later, Sandy would do just that, taking Boyd’s life in the process.

According to civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy, Sandy’s statement reveals a premeditated decision to violently engage Boyd.

DUNBAR: Vancouver’s Emptiest Neighbourhood?

Above are a collection of homes in the Dunbar neighbourhood of the city. They have all been empty for various lengths of time, and represent the tip of the iceberg of emptiness in the neighbourhood. 

BEH is considering giving an annual award to the emptiest neighbourhood in Vancouver, and we think that Dunbar might be in the running for 2014? Do you live in Dunbar? What do you think?

It’s a survival thing. In America, we lose six queer kids a day to the street. That’s every four hours a queer kid dies, whether it be from freezing to death or getting the shit beat out of them or a drug overdose. This is our next real plague.

Seriously, read this heartbreaking story.

Gregory Kloehn goes dumpster diving, but not for the reason that most people would think. He isn’t homeless. In fact, he is an artist from Oakland that is trying to help the homeless and develop his craft at the same time.

Instead of building sculptures that he would sell to rich people to add to their massive homes, he decided to focus his efforts on helping house the homeless population in California.

Gregory digs through illegally dumped trash and goes dumpster diving

He uses what he collects to build small, one room shelters for the homeless.

And his homelessness project is getting attention.

Not only from the media, but from the people he helps as well.

The “little homeless homes” are about the size of the sofa.

But, something that small can mean the world to someone living on the streets.

Each of the homes are built with a pitched roof, so rain will run right off of them.

They also have wheels, so their owners will be able to wheel them around if they need to. 

The foundation he usually uses are discarded wooden pallets.

At first, as an artist, he made sculptures.

But peddling his creations got old.

Since he focused on housing, Gregory knows what he creates is being used.

A homeless woman he knows well, Wonder, raves about what he does.

The small shelter Gregory built for her was the best house she’s had in 5 years.

He published a book titled “Homeless Architecture.”

His focus seems to be on helping them build homes…

Even when they don’t have a conventional “house” to work with.

At first he was just building tiny homes to sell.

One day, a homeless man came by his studio asking for a tarp.

All Gregory had was a tiny wooden frame he was working on, equipped with a built-in kitchen, water tank and a small trap for human waste.

He then realized… it was a home that this man could use.

Someone could use it and it would change their life.

He can’t build houses for all of Oakland’s homeless.

However, he doesn’t intend to stop building any time soon.

He’s thought about starting classes, teaching others how to make them. “A lot of people who hear about what I’m doing want to get involved,” he said. “Maybe we meet some place and put a couple homes together.”

   My name is Sam Vesta. My mom, my brother and I have been homeless for around 3 months. Some days I didn’t know if I would be able to eat. We now have a steady income, but it isn’t enough. We pay 280$ a month for our storage compartment, and that comes out of a 400$ income.

   Along with that, we also live with my grandmother who is disabled, along with my aunt who is also disabled. They house they live in is in horrible conditions. There is trash everywhere, and an infestation of cockroaches. Worst of all, the house they live in is being foreclosed on.

   The reason we are homeless is because of my father. He is a sociopath, and refuses to pay child support after my mom left him in 2007. He has my 3 brothers with him while My mom, my brother, and I are homeless. My mom used to live with him in the summer of last year, because she was homeless then.

   That summer was the worst for all of us. I had become depressed and started harming myself after my dad had attacked my older brother, by putting his hand on his neck, shoving him into a glass door, and then throwing him to the ground. My mother made a CPS (Child Protection Services) report, but the CPS agent told my mom it was her fault she was unable to protect him.

   My mother moved out after that, and moved in a new house that she payed half the rent for. My dad payed the other half. My mother got around $800- $1000 a month. She is on welfare, and has SSI for my brother Atticus who has aspergers. Atticus currently lives with my dad.

   My mother filed for child support in February of this year, and when my dad heard about it he cut off the internet, the power and just stopped paying rent. My mother had court on June 2nd, and my dad knew she was being evicted, so he got a continuance for August 4th.

   We (with the help of my brothers friend who was also homeless) moved out everything and got everything into our storage unit. My brother’s friend stayed with us, but he used a lot of drugs so we had to get rid of him. Not until after he left did we find out that he was accused of rape, which means if he does come back we aren’t taking him in again.

   On August 4th, my mother won the case for $2000 dollars of child support, but, we got bad news after that. My dad refused to voluntarily pay it, and it wont be garnished until either October or November. Thats one or two more months of being homeless.

   After that, we bought a tent and placed it in my grandmother’s front yard. We also had air mattresses to put in it, so we didn’t have sore backs anymore. But the happiness it didn’t last long.

   My father had tried to get the SSI for my brother going to him, instead of my mom, because he thought he had primary residence of him. He had temporary residence, so he didn’t get it. But, instead of it going straight back to my mother, it just stopped paying anyone. So instead of $800-1000 dollars a month, we only get $400. That’s barely enough to pay our storage unit fee, let alone be able to feed all three of us.

   I also started school earlier in August, so on top of stress about money, I have school.

   Please help us, we have no where to go. Please, please help us.

Please help my mom, me, and my brother. We don’t have anywhere else to go.

Please save my friend from homelessness

Half a year ago, I met a great guy. I was at a very low point in my life and it was hard to even wake up most mornings, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had been struggling to find a medication that worked for me. Although I knew my family cared about me I couldn’t see any point in continuing, I had no goals in life and I felt useless. Him and I, we met online in a chat after I was posting dumb pictures of dogs in tights. We became great friends because we shared the same humour and he gave me hope in continuing on. He was there for me even when I tried pushing him away. Recently, my depression came back and I became extremely unreasonable and unstable and he was unable to help me. I became angry at him but I was wrong, I was so very wrong. I have caused him so much uneeded pain. Today, on the 26th of September was the first time I ever heard him cry. I thought because I had never heard him cry he was a rock, but gradually I had worn him down. The reason I am starting this fund is because his mother was diagnosed about a month ago with cancer and he is facing the threat of becoming homeless, he is absolutely terrified of waking up with nothing and I want to repay him for everything wonderful that he did for me, I am trying to get a job just so I can help him. I want him to know that I am truly sorry for hurting him and that he has made so many people very happy, especially me.

Even if you are unable to donate, I urge you to please share this with others.
