A 107-year-old man was shot and killed in a standoff with a SWAT team at his home in Pine Bluff, Ark., police say.

Responding to a domestic disturbance on Saturday, police were told that Monroe Isadore had pointed a weapon at two other people. Officers identified themselves, but Isadore fired at them. Supervisors were called in to negotiate with the man, but those negotiations soon collapsed.

“S.W.A.T. inserted gas into the room, after it was evident negotiations were unsuccessful, in hopes Isadore would surrender peacefully,” according to a statement from the Pine Bluff police. “When the gas was inserted into the room, Isadore fired rounds at the S.W.A.T. officers that had inserted the gas from outside a bedroom window.”

Afterward, the officers broke into the home, breached the bedroom door, and threw a “distraction device” into the room to stun the suspect, according to the police report. He fired more rounds at the officers and, after an exchange of gunfire, Isadore was killed.

Pauline Lewis, who roomed in the home with Isadore told KTHV-TV that she had approached Isadore about moving into a new apartment, and that’s when he grew hostile.

“I just had to call the police,” she said. “I couldn’t do anything else with it.”

Liberal/Communist/Socialist police trying to stop this man from exercising his Second Amendment Rights.


This is either Obama's or Hiliary's fault.  I'm going to listen to some talk radio tomorrow to find out which one.

107 years old? A swat team for a pistol? This could have been handled much better. Nah. Easier to just kill the old timer like he was some kind of annoying vermin.

Who cares that he was obviously upset. Was he being forced to move? Did he even know he was supposed to move? Maybe he was just standing his ground from being threatened. 

That must be one very proud SWAT team.

Whatever their story is, I'm always going to be skeptical. The press always gets their story from the police and never from eyewitnesses that will conflict with them. Y'all wonder about the police state? Well it's the media that makes it possible.

What is he doing with a gun in the first place? He is 107 years old, thats a little too old to have a gun in your possession.

It's quite possible this man suffered from dementia...

Suicide by police!?  Sound plausible!

The Gestapo just has to kill anyone that doesn't yield to their "God like" powers.  Men, women, children, it doesn't really matter.  Most of them are on a power trip, and have no regard for human life.  Enforcing the law is their ultimate goal.  Just like WWII Nazi germany.

At least by the time he reached 105 he should have known better.

One has to ask: where the hell are the parents?
