CEO shot to death by cop at 'gay' cruising spot

1:17 pm - 07/21/2010
DeFarra Gaymon, the successful CEO of Credit Union of Atlanta, was shot and killed by a police officer in Newark, New Jersey last week after allegedly propositioning the officer at a cruising area to which he had made a detour on the way to his 30th high school reunion.

Details regarding Gaymon's death, mostly from the one-sided perspective of the officer who shot him, are emerging:
On Tuesday, the acting Essex County prosecutor gave the first detailed, public description of what happened in the wooded park that night, saying that the officer, who had tried to arrest Mr. Gaymon, 48, over lewd behavior, fired in self-defense. The prosecutor, Robert D. Laurino, said that Mr. Gaymon assaulted the officer, a 29-year-old member of the Essex County Sheriff’s Department, tried to flee and then, when cornered, attempted to disarm the officer.
The incident, despite whatever your personal opinions are about consensual sex in public places (between men, most of whom do not identify as gay), begs the question of why police budget and resources are being spent to send armed officers to deal with this type of behavior.
Around 6 p.m., after chasing down a man and arresting him, the officer realized he had lost his handcuffs in the pursuit and went back into the woods, alone, to retrieve them, the prosecutor said.

“The plainclothes officer was bending down to retrieve his handcuffs,” Mr. Laurino said, “when he was approached by Mr. Gaymon, who was engaged in a sexual act at the time.” Words were exchanged that the prosecutor said “would lead one to believe that” Mr. Gaymon was propositioning the officer.

“The officer pulled out his badge, identified himself as a police officer and informed Mr. Gaymon that he was under arrest,” Mr. Laurino said. Then, he said, Mr. Gaymon shoved the officer to the ground and ran, ignored the officer’s demands to stop, and repeatedly threatened to kill the officer if he approached. The officer cornered Mr. Gaymon beside a pond and tried to handcuff him, Mr. Laurino said, but again Mr. Gaymon resisted.

“Mr. Gaymon reached into his pocket and lunged at the officer in an attempt to disarm the officer,” Mr. Laurino said. The officer, “fearing for his life,” the prosecutor said, shot Mr. Gaymon once, and he died at the hospital three hours later.

Mr. Laurino’s statement was based on an account given by the officer to investigators. Prosecutors said they knew of no one else who saw what happened, and they asked that any witnesses step forward.
A married father of four is now dead because someone on the Newark police force felt that eradicating this behavior was more of a priority than all of the other problems in that city.

Seriously, "I was in the woods cause I lost my handcuffs". Give me a fucking break.

Asshole cop gets gay panic and murders a man. So do you think he'll get away with it because no charges will be pressed or will he get away with it when a jury gives him a pass because he's a cop?

I think he'll totally get away with it - and I doubt he'll even lose his job. they'll stick him on desk duty for a few months, 24 max and he'll be back on the street in no time.

“The plainclothes officer was bending down to retrieve his handcuffs,” ... Mr. Gaymon was propositioning the officer ... The officer, “fearing for his life,” the prosecutor said, shot Mr. Gaymon

Remember. Homosexuals are always out there, stalking down moral and ethical straight men and will stop at nothing until they've sucked their cock and turned them gay. Killing them is the only solution. Thank Jesus this horrible, horrible homosexual predator is no longer able to further the gay agenda of transforming our police into gays.

Fuck the police. That is all.

This story is COMPLETE bullshit. Don't cops have that plastic wire in CASE something happens to the cuffs. On top of that, why would he stop his arrest just to find the handcuffs. Most cops would radio for backup and wait until they come to continue any other pursuits. On top of that, if Gaymon was engaged in a sexual act, why would be propositioning someone else at that time. I could see AFTER, but I think that's a bit much. Also, why would someone try and disarm an officer, knowing they a gun AND are the police.

Sounds to me that this sexually confused cop was looking for some dick on the clock, he got frisked or approached too strongly and was found out by Gaymon, probably was gonna be blackmailed or something like that and used the gun to ascertain his power against the man by taking in his life, hoping that him being on duty would cover his trail.

I think Gaymon's supposed sex act was with himself if it took place at all. Other than that I totally agree with you.

What the fuck is this this bullshit? The cop was bending down and was assaulted by Gaymon? And of course he'll get away with it. Ugh, fuck the goddamned police.

Haha not really. Anarchism isn't just about destroying CEOs and smashing the state (as it can be stereotyped, and also bought into as by immature bourgeousie brats), it's about deconstructing hierarchies, privileges, and systems which lead to the direct oppression of the individual. This man was killed because he was gay, and the cop is likely going to get off scot-free because of his position of state authority. Hatred and privilege win the day here, and any ongoing proposition of such is antithetical to the ~anarchist agenda~.

Around 6 p.m., after chasing down a man and arresting him, the officer realized he had lost his handcuffs in the pursuit and went back into the woods, alone, to retrieve them, the prosecutor said.

But at 6 p.m., it's still bright daylight out, with dusk another two hours away! And at 6 p.m., in a park, there would no doubt be quite a few people around, wouldn't there, because that's the time of day when people are getting home from work and taking their dogs and kids to the park. If one was living as a gay man on the DL, would one go to a park at that time of day to cruise, with the chances of being seen or discovered THAT high?

Something really stinks about this story, all right.

I completely agree with this thought too!

After the pro-Johannes Mehserle rally held by a nearby local police force here in the Bay Area (I think it was Pleasanton or Walnut Creek) I can't deal with this shit today.

You probably don't want to read the article I posted about the Jean Charles de Menezes execution either then bb.

So much fuck the police today. :|

In these trials there's always this bullshit excuse of the victim 'reaching fo a gun' or whatnot. Rubbish.
