Two Mississippi Cop Killer Suspects Are Felons, Barred From Gun Possession

by AWR Hawkins  |  published on May 11, 2015


At approximately 1 a.m. Sunday morning, police arrested 29-year-old Marvin Banks for his alleged role in the shooting deaths of Hattiesburg Police Officers Benjamin J. Deen and Liquori Tate.

Banks is barred from gun possession thanks to a prior felony conviction.

WDAM 7 reports that Banks was charged “with two counts of capital murder, one count of grand theft auto and one count of felon in position of a firearm.” As Breitbart News previously reported, a police car was stolen after officers Deen and Tate were shot.

Marvin’s brother, Curtis Banks, was arrested around 3 a.m. and “has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder.” Curtis is also barred from gun possession thanks to a prior felony conviction.

A third suspect, 22-year-old Joanie Calloway, was also captured and charged. Law enforcement officials say “she was [allegedly] in the car with the two suspects” when the shootings occurred.

    My husband was in law enforcement for 28 years. He and his fellow officers can tell you that any time you have an administration, from village/township all the way up to the federal level that exhibits an attitude that is anti-police you will have more and more officers beaten, shot, killed. There have been studies done that show the direct correlation. The current administration has shown its open hatred of law enforcement almost from day one. His very first summer in office, Obama said, “I don’t know any of the facts of the case, but the Cambridge police acted stupidly” That should have sent a clear message to anyone with an ounce of common sense. And it has only gotten worse over the years. Anyone willing to enter law enforcement at this current time should be aware that they are going in with a giant target on their backs, placed there by our idiot-in-chief, his attorney(s) general and their ALpha adviser, Sharptongue.

    WAIT….did they “ignore” all the gun laws pasted by the liberals, telling them they couldn’t having a firearm….Imagined that…WAKE UP AMERICA…gun laws ONLY disarm you and me, not THEM.

    Once again… NO law will EVER keep guns away from criminals EVER! Get that through your stupid liberal pea brains. Criminals will always be able to obtain guns. And they will not need any legal method to do so! In fact, they have always and will always avoid any legal channels. As with Banks here, they are barred from LEGALLY possessing any guns! Scheeze already!

    Skunk Obama would first seek to place blame since this does not look good for his line of progressive reasoning. Was this a racial stop? Did the felons recently find the guns and for the sake of community intend to drop them off at the nearest police station? Were racial slurs uttered at the scene causing a lack of sanity which forced them to shoot? Did these people face an inordinate amount of white privilege?

    So hows the restricted gun laws working out for you? More crap laws by crap folks holding office. I’m sure sharpton & o’niggar woun’t be heard from.

    Why is not a rally organized by Al Sharpton and president Obama against these thugs?…..Boy, and they called themselves Civil Rights activists, RACISTS, that’s what they are!!!

    I hope Senator Dianne Frankenstein (D-CA) is listening! LISTEN UP Frankenstein! Your gun bans aren’t working!!

      She, and they, don’t care. It’s enough for them that we as patriotic, and non-thugs, are unarmed. Makes it easier to wipe us all out.

    Wow. I am sure the families of these 2 officers are so very happy that gun laws are in effect. CRIMINALS WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO GET GUNS. Nothing short of keeping these criminals OFF the streets would have saved the officers lives. My deepest sympathies and prayers for the families of these slain policemen. And, THANK YOU for their service.

    What a sad scenario, two police officers dead, from convicted felons who were not suppose to have firearms, where are the people who are responsible for releasing this felons, the courts should start being held accountable for their so called compassion, and releasing these thugs back to society.
    Our prayers go out to the families’ of these police officers.
