Federal Officers Fire Upon Homeless Individual in Wheelchair, Prompting Criticism of Biden Administration’s Strategies

A chilling video has emerged, revealing federal officers, including those from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the United States Forest Service, shooting a white homeless man in a wheelchair. The footage, brought to light by The Daily Mail and the Idaho Statesman, unveils the moment officers targeted Brooks Roberts and his family in the Payette National Forest, utilizing a deceitful tactic to lure them into the open. As reported by the Gateway Pundit on Thursday, November 16, 2023, this shocking incident unfolded back in May and was marked by the arrest of Brooks’ brother, Timber, near an unused school bus, their makeshift home in the aftermath of the COVID pandemic that rendered them homeless.

The video captures the arresting moment of Timber while Brooks, confined to a wheelchair, raises his arm towards the officers. In a tragic turn of events, gunfire erupts as federal agents open fire, leaving Brooks permanently paralyzed from the waist down. The Intercept detailed the federal operation’s deceitful outset: officers approached Timber under the guise of needing help starting their car. As Timber went to retrieve jumper cables from his truck, the officers forcibly detained him. This appalling breach of trust unfolded as the Roberts family, in an act of kindness, sought to assist what they believed were stranded motorists. Brooks’ attorneys argue that federal agents exploited the family’s goodwill, resulting in minor misdemeanor offenses and a devastating shooting. In response to their harrowing ordeal, the homeless family has filed a $50 million claim against the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Department of Agriculture, citing “extreme suffering” inflicted by the shooting.

Brooks, Timber, and Judy Roberts have entered guilty pleas through agreements with prosecutors, with Brooks and Judy set to be sentenced on January 4. The incident raises profound questions about the Biden administration’s approach to handling vulnerable populations, as federal resources appeared to be misused to target a homeless family instead of offering assistance. Advocates for justice are rallying for accountability and a thorough investigation into the excessive use of force by federal officers as the shocking video circulates. This incident not only underscores the vulnerability of marginalized communities but also emphasizes the urgent need to reevaluate law enforcement tactics, particularly when dealing with individuals experiencing homelessness.
