 Officer Ian Lawler was conducting a traffic stop when Ryan Keith Bolinger, 28, pulled up next to the police vehicle, reportedly so close that the officer could not get out of his vehicle. Bolinger then got out of his vehicle and began dancing in the street erratically.

“It’s been described as almost dancing in the street or making unusual movements in the street,” Sgt. Jason Halifax told reporters. “I don’t want it to be construed that he’s doing a waltz in the middle of Merle Hay Road…. He’s outside of his vehicle. He’s not making a directed motion.”

“It’s odd, erratic behavior which begins by parking very close to the squad car that’s already on a traffic stop and getting out of your vehicle to do whatever he was doing in the street.”

Bolinger then returned to his vehicle and lead Lawler on a low speed chase, topping out at around 35 miles per hour.  Lawler was assisted by Officer Vanessa Miller. Lawler stated over his radio that the driver might may be “10-96,” police code for mentally ill, or “10-55,” a drunk driver, the Des Moines Register reported.

About a mile away from the original stop, Bolinger reportedly did a u-turn and stopped his vehicle abruptly. Lawler pulled in front of Bolinger to prevent him from moving any further, and Miller stopped behind Bolinger’s vehicle.

When Bolinger exited his car and began to walk towards Officer Miller’s vehicle, she shot him through her window, which shattered.  Bolinger was pronounced dead at the scene.  

No weapons were found on his body and he had no criminal record.

REPORT: ‘ KARL ROVE AND TEAM COVERED UP DISCLOSURE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN IRAQ IN 2004 ‘

#AceNewsServices – October 18 – The Daily Beast’s Eli Lake reports that the individual responsible for covering up the discovery of chemical weapons in Iraq in 2004 was Karl Rove.

Lake spoke to former Republican Senator Rick Santorum, who told him that his office started receiving photographs of discarded shells of sarin and mustard gas from United States military personnel in 2003 and 2004.

He approached the George W. Bush White House about using them in his reelection campaign, but was rebuffed because of what the New York Times alleges was an attempt to cover-up the chemical wounds being suffered by American troops.

“We don’t want to look back,” Santorum recalls Rove saying, careful to note that he is paraphrasing a conversation he had eight years previous. “I will say that the gist of the comments from the president’s senior people was ‘We don’t want to look back, we want to look forward.’”

Dave Wurmser, at the time a senior advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney, corroborated Santorum’s account, saying that “Karl Rove and his team blocked public disclosure of these [findings] and said ‘Let these sleeping dogs lie; we have lost that fight so better not to remind anyone of it.’”

Still, Santorum believes that the administration missed an opportunity. Although “there [were] no active chemical-weapons operation in Iraq — that doesn’t mean there were no chemical weapons.

That was the point we were making. It’s clear from The New York Times’ article that the military as well as the administration didn’t want to have that conversation because they missed it.”
