Antifa Activist Charlie Landeros Shot to Death in Eugene, OR
On January 11, Antifa activist Charlie Landeros pulled a gun on police officers at Cascade Middle School in Eugene, Oregon. Police fatally shot him. The DA’s office ruled the shooting justified. He had posted violent anti-government messages on social media.
Landeros was in a custody battle over the daughter. He enrolled his daughter in the Cascade Middle School without his ex-wife’s permission, which violated the provisions of the order. She brought custody paperwork to the school, and school administrators call the School Resource Officer, Steve Timm. Officer Timm went over the paperwork with Landero’s ex-wife prior to the incident. Timm then called officer Aaron Johns.
Officers confronted Landeros when he went to pick up his daughter on January 11, and advised him of that provision in the custody paperwork. He refused to leave the school, so they escorted him outside, where a struggle ensued.
They pushed Landeros up against the wall in order to arrest him, but during the struggle, he pulled out a 9mm gun and fired two rounds at Officer Timm, who then shot him in the head. The unfortunate thing was that Landeros’ daughter reportedly saw it.
Landeros had 20 rounds in his 9mm, not including the one in the chamber, as well as another loaded magazine in his gun belt. His backpack contained more magazines full of ammunition.
Police released body cam footage of the incident:
On January 9, two days before the deadly shooting outside the school, police in nearby Springfield received a screenshot of a Facebook comment on a story about a man shot and killed by police in Portland.
A comment posted by “Charlie Landeros” read, “Time to start killing pigs,” investigators wrote.
Then on the morning of January 11 – about an hour before the incident at Cascade Middle School – someone alerted the manager of Springfield Police Facebook page that someone named “Charlie Landeros” had commented “Death to all pigs” on a post on the department Facebook page about a California police officer shot and killed while investigating a traffic crash.
Armed Antifa Group
Landeros was a member of an armed Antifa group, and was actively training them, according to the Truth About Guns. The family has hired Civil Liberties attorneys to “do an independent investigation” and potentially file a lawsuit. They believe his ethnicity had something to do with his death. In point of fact, shooting at a police officer sealed his fate.
The District Attorney says that this was a classic case of justified shooting. The body cam footage is clear: he pulled a gun and shot first at police. Police returned fire, taking the danger out.
Please be aware that Landeros was an Army veteran and served six years as a helicopter mechanic and crew chief, according to Daily Mail. KVAL reported a protest in which he stated he used the GI bill to enroll in college when he returned from Iraq and Afghanistan.
A radical leftist in the military is not a comforting thought.
