Remembering Hispanic/Latino Victims of Murder/Police Brutality In America

Mark Salazar, 22 (Oklahoma): Killed on August 25, 2014 By Oklahoma City Sergeant Ryan Stark, Who Murdered Salazar After He Allegedly Killed Stark’s K-9 Agent, Kye, Who Police Gave A Full-Honor Funeral, While The Town Celebrated The Hispanic Man’s Death

OKLAHOMA CITY – A case that grabbed the attention of Oklahomans across the state is now back in the spotlight.

On Aug. 25, Sgt. Ryan Stark and Stark’s K-9 police dog, Kye, were involved in a high-speed chase.

Authorities say 22-year-old Mark Salazar led officers on a chase through Moore, Norman and ended along I-35 in Goldsby.

After crashing his car, officers say Salazar tried to run away but was caught by Kye.

At that point, police say Salazar repeatedly stabbed Kye before Sgt. Stark arrived.

“The canine officer made his way to the suspect’s location to pull the canine off the suspect and noticed the suspect armed with a knife and had been actively stabbing the canine,” said Capt. Dexter Nelson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

That’s when Stark opened fire and killed Salazar.

The next day, the K-9 officer died as a result of the stabbing.

Now, the case is back in the spotlight with the release of the autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Oklahoma.

According to the report, Salazar was shot six times, four of those in the back.

Salazar’s death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, which means another human caused his death.

The McClain County District Attorney will determine if the manner of death was criminal in nature.

The Salazar family attorney believes the shooting was not justified.

“He’s not a punk. He’s not a thug. He doesn’t have some extensive criminal background. Yes, he has a job.” said Noble McIntyre, the Salazar family’s attorney.

According to McIntyre, there are a number of things the police department got wrong the night Salazar was killed.

He says Salazar was suspected of stealing a car.

However, McIntyre says the car belonged to Salazar.

After the incident, police said Salazar was stabbing the dog when he was shot.

“We know the officer was in close proximity to the suspect when the suspect was stabbing the dog, which places the officer in great danger of the suspect,” said Capt. Nelson on Aug. 25.

The medical examiner’s report told a different story.

According to the report, the medical examiner investigator wrote the suspect was running away, an initial determination allegedly formulated when the investigator was out at the scene.

“Mark had been shot in the back multiple times from a distance. Not while he was on the ground wrestling with a dog, but as he was attempting to flee,” McIntyre said. “There was a larger concern about the dog than there was about the human life.”

In a surprising twist, the medical examiner’s office changed its mind on the idea that Salazar was running away.

In an email to the chief of police, the medical examiner said, “The gunshot wounds on the back of this deceased individual all have a clearly steep angle, downward trajectory and are highly unlikely to have been discharged while this man was running away from a person who was shooting.”

The police chief is expecting a change to the autopsy report and feels it is justified.

The Fool:

When I was a kid, I wasn’t a rise and shine kind of kid. It took me AGES to get ready for class. My parents always threatened me with taking me to school in my PJ’s. One day, they finally did.

The Tower:

My dream home… changes with my every mood. Some times I wish for a remote minimalistic cabin near a mountain lake.

Some times, I wish for my great grand mother’s house, with subtles modifications (renovation & modernisation mostly).

Some times I wish for a skyscraper appartment high up in the skyline and with walls made of glass, something very sober where everything is at its place and hidden in slick cupboards.

Primarch - Dreamcast

Some of these are hard to picture, but imagine them in make-up and costume (and most of the hairstyles have gotta change). I’m imagining it stylized like ‘300’.

Let me know what you think. Who would you keep and who would you change??

the-pournival alliesindex tinyfulgrim metalboxes nogoodpainting @hatefulsage - would love to get your thoughts on this :D

Thanks for the tag,  Lee Pace is in the wrong slot he’s Fulgrim, not Corax! (Thranduil is basically Fulgrim!) I think Kit is just so not any Primarch… and no no no Magnus isn’t right for me at all. Sangi is wrong too. Tbh with the exception of Lee Pace I find it hard to picture any actors as Primarchs so I won’t be so good at making suggestions…

They would need to capture this face for Dorn as I cannot see him any other way than this —-> 

I could get on board with Mads playing someone as he’s fantastic, the same for Richard Armitage. And I can see how Nikolaj as Lion would work… Horus no, Ferrus no, I can see James Purfoy more as Guilliman if he had to be someone. Don’t know much of Liev Schreiber but from that photo I can kind of picture the Russ thing. Also, why is Bruce Willis not on this list in some capacity? XD Oooh and Mark Strong should be someone. (I bet you’re sorry you asked for my opinion now :P hahaha) 

Agreed - Lee Pace = Fulgrim.

I wouldn’t have Richard Armitage as a Primarch, but I feel he would be amazing as Erebus.

I like the idea of Kevin McKidd as Dorn, he has the serious stoic thing down. Plus you could dye his hair…

And whilst I’m all for gender neutral casting, Tilda Swinton just isn’t classically chiselled, Greek sculpture, angelic enough to be Sangy…

I beg to disagree. Tilda Swinton feels like the Perfect Cast for the Angel.
