Concord (CA) Police Summarily Execute Unarmed Charles Burns

May 12, 2013

Mr. Charles Burns

A young man who would have celebrated his 22nd birthday on Mother’s Day is dead, as California police continue slaughtering Americans daily.

It was just after 9 p.m. Friday night when Concord Police say they were “conducting surveillance” out of their jurisdiction at Mr. Charles Burns’ Antioch home near the corner of Barcelona Circle and Buchannan Road. Police say they were investigating “dangerous drug sales.”

Concord spokescop Steve Dyar said Mr. Burns, 21, exited his home and got into a car driven by another 21-year-old man. The cops then “attempted to contact” Mr. Burns to serve him a warrant, and according to police, the driver accelerated and rammed an unoccupied cop car. Police say Mr. Burns got out of the car and starting running. The cops “feared for their lives,” according to the spokescop, which prompted three of them to recklessly fire upwards of 15 total bullets at Mr. Burns, killing him instantly. All the killers were immediately rewarded by the city with paid vacations, aka “paid administrative leave.”

Here is a report from KGO ABC-7 in San Francisco.

The killers were so reckless, one bullet went through a window of a nearby apartment. Fortunately there was nobody home at the time.

The driver of the car was arrested and charged with “assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.” His name is being withheld. The only possible reason for this is police will attempt to get the young man to tell a favorable story about the murder in exchange for them to drop the bogus “charge.” Mr. John Burns, Charles’ father, and obviously very upset, told a local news station he will fight until every one of the killers is brought to justice.

It is obvious Mr. Burns was unarmed when these cops gunned him down, as this would have been the first thing they told the public to, in their eyes, justify the killing. And though laws and precedent mean absolutely nothing in America anymore (except the law guaranteeing police will always get away with murder), the 1985 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tennessee vs. Garner specifically outlaws cops gunning down “an apparently unarmed, non-dangerous fleeing suspect.”

State-run media have yet to launch standard protocols by digging up some sort of “criminal record” or anything negative about Mr. Burns to assist police in justifying yet another killing. Though several headlines refer to Mr. Burns as “drug suspect.” The truth is, the police did the job they are paid to do, which is slaughter and incarcerate as many Americans as possible. They know they will be rewarded with paid vacations for it, and know the cop-sucking community will always come to their defense and give them “atta boys” no matter the frequency or circumstances surrounding these gang-style executions. No charges will be filed against the killers and they should be back on the street for their next kill within a few weeks.

Our thoughts are with the Burns family.

    Yet another example of unnecessary illegal criminal actions of the biggest gang you need to protect yourself from. Guess what though? If you do protect yourself against the cops you will be charged with murder or assault, and the book will be thrown at you, and the key thrown away, and then you will be subservient to another criminal organization and their thugs who violate your rights on a near daily basis (the Prison Industrial Complex). So the vast majority of Americans believe we are a free people, in a free country, and that we have a lot of liberty; but in most cases only those people who have experienced the tyranny and abuse firsthand (and maybe their families), understand the true state of our nation. The 2nd Amendment guarantees that people have the right to defend themselves by whatever means necessary, whether from common criminals, or criminals with badges. Our government has removed the inalienable human rights espoused by our founders of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness with any and all, “gun control” laws and local DAs/prosecutors have finished the job with their own criminality and corruption, instead of upholding liberty. Every politician, prosecutor, lawyer, judge, cop etc., who violates their oath of office to uphold and protect the supreme law of the land (above all others), is guilty of the crime of treason; in addition to other possible crimes. When a citizen’s constitutional rights have been violated, a crime has been committed. Sooner of later there’s going to be hell to pay for these tyrants. They had better change their ways, and join “Oath Keepers” before it’s too late for them.

    How can anyone trust that a proper investigation will take place from an agency that only a year before this shooting had its commanding officer sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for selling stolen drugs. Remember Norman Wielsh. The county had the investigation responsibilities taken over by the federal goverment. They want us to believe Norman was the only one involved in taking the drugs out of the evidence room and sold back to drug dealers. How difficult would it be for the CPD to magically find 1 1/2 pounds of meth in Charle’s house.

    Let this serve as another example that the corruption with police is colorblind.

    Im so tired of the race baiting about police & blacks in the media. There are literally tens of thousands of cases with white victims like this. The police just dont care. Its not color, its the “us against them” mentality they’ve pushed for decades. The thin blue line.

    These dirtbags are thug’s for the state. Their main objective is revenue & control. You’re either paying attorneys/fines/classes/ clear your charge, or you’re going to prison where the private prison industrial complex gets federal subsidies for each inmate. or…you are dying. No one is immune. No color is specifically targeted. Its all about revenue & control. Any way you slice it – contact with the police means you are paying dearly, maybe with your life.

    Rest assured after they kill you, they will take a vacation, brag to their freinds & family about what heroes they are, swagger around like arrogant dickheads & get a honor award from the city. In the meantime, your family will scrounge up the expensive funeral money, cry until they are tired, endure the attacks on your character, & watch as the police are rewarded & working the streets in a few weeks. Poof – your life over, their seething evil lust fulfilled.

They would sit there and talk about all the people they shoot all the hoes they got to take in and fuck with! Its just sad!! I’m fuckin sick of this shit. We lost a wonderful man because???? If u really look into the story this shit does not add up! Because the COPS are guilty! They have no respect for anything! We will get JUSTICE for CHARLES BURNS!

    Charles was a great person.He had such a big loving heart and only the people that knew him knew what type of person he was a great one! I’ve know Charles and his family for five years and in super blessed to have so many memories with him..what happened to him was truly wrong and he so deserves justice. Not a day goes bye that he is not on my mind; my heart aches in pain. I miss him so much, but most of all I miss his silly laugh and huge grin!!

    I want the family of the young man who was shot to know I am so sorry it should not have happened. I not a cop hater and I am not a drug user or seller. But really were still wasting our tax payers money going after someone selling drugs. Come on unless it is heroin laced with rat poison and people are dying stop it.

    Justice will be served in the most lawful way because we are a law abiding family and will handle things in the most lawful classy educated way. It will take time but justice will be served for Charles and yes we are angry Charles was taken from us so soon but he won’t endure any of the struggles and issues we will endure being here on earth. Charles was murdered yes but Charles was also promoted that day and earned his wings. He finally got to meet his grandfather he heard so much about and always wanted to meet. Rest in peace Charles Burns. We love and miss you dearly.

    This is just plain heartbreaking. And I speak on the level of humanity. The people that are here to “protect and serve” are either untrained or shooting out of fear and either way it’s a receipe for disaster. One comment spoke of being accountable for ones actions. To this I say, since when did a drug sales charge hold a “hunt down and execute” sentence. Let’s not add in the fact that his hands were exposed showing no weapon and he waw running AWAY from them. And all three officers, no less. Excessive force at it’s worst. And as if that was not enough, let’s not forget to mention that with a hail of gunfire and the homes and apartments near by that the risk for innocent people to be hurt/killed by stray bullet was very high. What I see is some very bad decisions by people that hold accountability very high on there moral list. And those decisions ended in the loss of a life. It’s time to see just how much accountability really means to those who preach it most. I send love and sympathy to the family who lost there baby in such an imaginable way. Peace be with you

    The cops these days are the biggest organized crime/gangs out here except with a license to commit murder. Who’s the real threat?The drugs that this kid supposedly sold or the pieces of shit that killed him?Man what a fucked off system we have. Never any repercussions for these cops just benefits and paid vacations. What a great service you fucks do for our community. “Protect and serve” what a fucking joke. Rip Charles

    should of gotten him on the next shift! the kid never left contra costa county! CPD killed him, they fired on an unarmed kid, his history doesnt change the facts! investigation should be done by professionals. i know this wouldnt have happened in SF because the SFPD doesnt have time to play games and they are properly trained.

    It does not matter what he was doing.HE was UNARMED AND RUNNING AWAY.THEY HAD NO RITE TO SHOOT HIM.I have respect for the police and would not want there jobs.But this is just plain flat murder.It should be and is unexceptionable.These officers should be charged for murder.There lives were not threatened by an unarmed man running from them.The public needs to stand up and let the government know we will not tolerate this.The police have no rite just to slaughter our citizens in the street for running from them.

    sad when a website supports people not being held accountable for his/her actions. it’s sad when a person loses their life, however, perhaps he should have made a better choice in who he hung out with. the police were defending themselves against the douche bag driver. perhaps the driver needs to be charged with murder.

    • Uno ceeme
      May 18, 2013 at 11:18 am

      Why when the driver killed no one? He was running AWAY from the police. The police are so far out of line that the citizens need to arm themselves. Really, who cares if he was comming out of a house that drug deals are made. Get the proper warrents and serve it on the residents, by posting a copy. Too bad there werent any police that died in the van because then the cops could try to justify this crime in killing someones son ,brother, dad, or friend. I feel so bad for the family. Who do they go to too.? At least They dont have to look for the murderers, citizens arrest? Yeah right. Cops are weak , hey hide thier pathethic egos behind a badge with other pigs that think they know whats right. Revolution my friends, REVOLUTION. Lets take the power back.

    Never have I seen so much cop hating bias in 1 article. Maybe consider both sides of the story once they are both out first before making such an article? Maybe get your facts straight too: he wasn’t coming out of HIS house, he was coming out of a suspected drug deal house. 2ndly, ever think that the suspect that was arrested has a bigger investigation that, if provided naming him right away, will compromise it? And your last paragraph on this article just shows that you are a cop hating prick.

      I love the article it exsplained it how it happened charles was murdered in cold blood. Charles was a very loving young man who would help anyone his family meant everything to him and for anyone to say he had it coming is just as evil as the killers chales had lots of people who loved him and we are deistated he was a only child so people need to keep negative comments to thier self who would do that someone heartless..

      All COPS are not good! this young man was gunned down, it was
      unneccisary. since when is running a crime for death penalty..
      JEEz some people are hilarious, they believe if you have a badge then you are
      “right””. Concord PD messed up this time! guns should not have beem needed..
      oh, by the way, the unmarked police van that was hit, nobody was hurt! if an uarked police van has guns drawn on me, i may run too. maybe we NEED to carry guns to protect ourselve, especially if you have a warrant! anyone who believes the cops w are always right” are so ill informed, i bet they still believe in santa fffn badge bunnys! thats dangerous, thats how people became slaves, priest became predators, and hitler came to power! its people like you, who cant see clearly right from wrong, people who Need to be
      told what to do! SMH!!

    • May 19, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      Actually friend, if the police that obviously have no RESPECT for the Judges, and the courts, and the Judicial System did do their jobs as they are supposed too, they wouldnt be acting on their own as Judge Jury and trial!!!! They are aupposed to apprehend suspects!!! Not make it a personal goal to kick the shit out of some one, because they could run faster, or drove better. And to shoot a gun in public!!!??? Hello!!!!!! I would go to jail just for shooting a damn BB gun in my back yard! There were other people that could have gotten shot when that officer shot that guy.Please lets take out the abusive officers and put in new training techniques, where the decent officers and the up and coming officers are trained in a humane way, Im not talking like woosies or any thing, but with real skills. Not all cops like whats going on either. And Cities are paying millions of dollers for these abusive cops, that hurt people and law suits have to be paid. Maybe it should come out of the abusive officers own pocket!! Abusive people should all be charged with their criminal act. And mr. or mrs. noneofyourbuisness, you can also call me a cop hating prick, because I do hate the cops that beat the fuck out of me and people I care about, I didnt deserve it, my friends and people I know didnt deserve it, if you think its ok for police to beat the hell out of you when your already on the ground, and hog tied, then there is some thing sincerely wrong with the wiring in your head. Or maybe, you just dont know what its like to have people you grew up believing were the ones you could trust in this shitty world, only for them to hurt you WORSE than any one ever could, than maybe youd under stand. But people arent pricks because they look at certain people different. Abuse is abuse, is abuse. And Abusers are Color blind!!! By the way Im only 4 foot 11 inches tall. I weigh 101 pounds, Ive never known how to fight, and I was beat up and hog tied by 6 cops,I have know idea how they would feel threatened by me, and there was NO reason for them to do what they did to me!!!!!!!!! And of course lie about it and defend each other. If you want to call me a prick, be my guest, but Im female so youd probably call me a Bitch. And thats ok by me, because at least Im not IGNORANT! Have a wonderful day, pal.

      He was on his way to Walmart, not a “drug deal”. Sounds like you’re just a cop loving prick. He was a son, a cousin, a best friend, a fiancé, and a FATHER who woulda done anything for the people he loved. And reguadless if he was a drug dealer or not, he was not a violent criminal. If anyone needs to check their facts, it’s you. You obvioulsy know nothing about this man or what happened. So go look up a different random article to read. Charles Burns was a good man who was murdered by 3 of Concord’s biggest cowards.
