Radical Leftist Charlie Landeros Killed After Pulling Gun At Middle School. National Media Silent.
The story is of Charles Frederick Landeros who apparently was involved with some kind of custody dispute over his daughter and after going to her middle school fully armed, was shot and killed by a police officer after Charles produced a gun and fired.
Charlie Landeros has been identified as a radical left activist who in 2017 led a student protest disrupting the University Of Oregon president`s State of the University speech. As a member of The Civil Liberties Defense Center he was called “…the beating heart of every project they were involved in, the beating heart of our community,”. According to The Daily Emerald, he was also a member of the Community Armed Self Defense:
Landeros was a member of Community Armed Self Defense, a group that was created as a “new liberatory and inclusive space for all oppressed peoples to learn about armed self-defense,” according to the group’s Facebook page, which is no longer publicly available on Facebook as of 4 p.m. Saturday.
Community Armed Self Defense’s Facebook page said that they could not count on the police to protect marginalized people, and that firearms help marginalized groups protect themselves.
“The police are not here to protect us. They are more likely to harm us themselves than they are to ‘serve or protect’ us,” the group wrote on their Facebook page description.
Again, we don`t know what his real motivation was in going to the school armed, but the question as to whether a larger tragedy was avoided is not unreasonable. The irony in this, is that at the time Charles Frederick Landeros was wearing a t shirt saying “Smash the patriarchy and chill”. Just because you refer to yourself as “they” and “their” instead of him or he does not mean you negate your gender. Had he realized that he was the patriarchy and allowed the mother to dictate the child`s decisions he may still be alive today.
For some reason the national news networks are silent on this. Had this been a “F*cking white male!” NRA member or “a radical white activist” etc can you imagine what the headlines would be??
