Death by Trutherism: The Strange Death of Jerry Kane

Jerry Kane ran a business designed to “help people” facing foreclosure stay in their homes. To that end he ran a website called Mortgage Fraud and traveled the country holding seminars. On these trips he liked to bring his son, two dogs and an AK-47. Police in West Memphis gunned down Kane and his son during a traffic stop where Kane used that AK-47 to kill two police officers.

I’ve watched a few clips of the seminars Kane ran on YouTube and they were snake oil to be sure, full of bad advice to desperate people which largely consisted of using  jailhouse lawyer logic to run con games on mortgage holders. Kane bought into some snake oil himself, as his YouTube channel VictoriaWarrior included quite a few videos on “new age” healing, UFOs and his thoughts on the vast, shadowy conspiracy that secretly runs the world. Here’s a comment he left on his page in response to another user:

My rights are endowed by my creator and not them, so they cannot lawfully take them away. Just don’t volunteer. Everything they, (and when I say they, I mean the powers that be. I know it by their clubs like the CFR, the UN, the Bilderbergers, Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, The Queen, Belgium, the City of London, the Vatican, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, the banking cartels etc. Wherever they are having secret meetings taking place regarding the people and the planet, there is no-good-going-on. If it were good, it wouldn’t be secret. The media would report the agenda, topics and guest Speakers on the 11 o’ clock news.) are doing is anti American.

They are a bunch of foreigners; imposters pretending to be constitutional government officials while at the same time they are creating fraudulent securities and engaging in money laundering, wiretapping and murder. Sounds like a R.I.C.O. is in order, that’s if there was a legitimate court to hear it.

This may explain why he believed it was appropriate to tell people to lie and cheat their way out of debt. And his love of Ron Paul.

It may also explain why he died. From Commercial Appeal:

The tragic day began at 11:36 a.m. on Interstate 40 when (Officer Bill)Evans radioed in that he was pulling over a white minivan with Ohio license plates near mile marker 275. The van pulled off the interstate onto an off-ramp near College Boulevard.

A few minutes later, (Sgt Brandon) Paudert, Evans’ backup in the Criminal Interdiction Unit, arrived on the scene. Suddenly, one of the two suspects in the van wrestled Evans to the ground. Gunfire rang out toward both officers from a “long rifle” and a handgun, police said.

Somehow, and police aren’t sure exactly how, a broadcast went out at 11:50 a.m.: “Officer down.”

Both officers were killed at the scene, sparking a manhunt that ended in a Walmart parking lot:

At about 1:06 p.m., someone spotted the van in the parking lot of the West Memphis Walmart.

What happened next is still the subject of confusion, one of many things investigators with the Arkansas State Police will have to decipher.

Dozens of shots rang out, both from the two suspects and the officers, but investigators are uncertain exactly who fired.

(Sheriff Dick) Busby and (Deputy Chief W.A.) Wren were hit, with Busby taking a shot in the shoulder and Wren taking three in the abdomen.

At that point, an unknown wildlife officer with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, part of the manhunt, rammed his pickup into the side of the minivan, disabling it.

“If it hadn’t been for him, they’d probably have killed Wren and Busby outright,” said Al Boals, a former West Memphis mayor visiting the family at The Med.

More than 30 officers swarmed the van after the shootout. The suspects’ bodies were pulled out, then thrown on a grassy median and the parking lot.

Some subtext as to why the cops are “confused” as to what happened may be explained by the fact that one of the officers killed was the son of West Memphis Police Chief Bob Paudert. Wren and Busby are older guys who likely knew the younger Paudert since he was young. Readers can put the pieces together on this, but I’m sure you know what you’d have done if someone gunned down some kid you knew.

On Kane’s side, circumstance may have conspired against him. Already knee deep in the world of conspiracy, where tenuous connections can be found between any two incidents, Kane was just coming off another run in with the law. His website has been converted to a memorial site for him and his step-son and on it this message appeared:

Bombshell

Last month, Jerry was stopped on I40 in New Mexico and arrested for not having a drivers license.  He recently completed his administrative process for the unlawful arrest.

Coincidence?

I40 sounds like the good ole boy  stretch-of-highway, where if they spot you, and they already dont like you, you’could get killed.  Even if you are just a Dad and son with your two dogs on your way home, minding your own business.

Let’s face it. If there wasn’t a “traffic stop” no one would be dead!

If it’s true that Kane was stopped before, he may have felt threatened by another stop and reacted like a person who thinks cops work for “them.” This is a case of Death by Trutherism.

Kane was driving around in a van he apparently stole from a long abandoned White Nationalist church which some are saying means he was himself a White Supremacist. But since he subscribes to and “friends” many African-Americans on his YouTube page and does not host any racist material I think that’s unlikely. Since he killed a couple of cops I don’t see a reason to try to smear him further with Nazi accusations. Cop killers are bad enough, no?

But an interesting side note to that piece of the story is that the late reverend for that racist church, one Harold R. Redfeairn, himself shot a cop in a traffic stop in 1979 according to this report on Commercial Appeal.

Gateway Pundit is covering this story, but I doubt there will be a satisfactory conclusion to this story. Everyone involved in the original gun battle is dead, and that fact itself will give rise to more conspiracy theories and perhaps more Jerry Kanes.

    It was a SWAT guy who pulled the Kanes over. WTH? The boy saw something that caused him to react but we still don’t see him fire when he gets out of the van. How do we know this? Because he appears to fire but we see no recoil, he then jimmies with the BOLT on the AK. The only 3 reasons you pull back on the AK BOLT like he did is:

    1) The bullet was bad, wouldn’t fire
    2) The bullet was jammed, wouldn’t fire
    3) Didn’t remember to chamber a round. no round to fire. These Arkancide corrupt lying murderers. Either the Arkansas State Police IS that stupid or they think WE’RE that stupid!

    So…what you’re saying is that the cops should have let the kid unjam his gun and shoot them and the fact that they didn’t means the Illuminati killed them?

    No Rob. What I’m saying is they’ll leave you with the IMPRESSION that the boy shot the cop in the side or the back when it’s CLEAR HE DIDN’T, HE COULDN’T HAVE, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. THAT’S their big proof? Also look at the dash cam video where it shows the original cop who pulled the Kane’s over wasn’t even a cop! Pause when Mr. Kane is being frisked. He’s a SWAT guy. Notice the Cobra hat. There’s so many obvious alterations and edits to the dashcams. 41 days and they show this? Where’s the AUDIO? Where’s Pauderts dash cam that will back up their lying story? Why didn’t they release it? It’s easy to gray out a corpse. This is an obvious obvious coverup. What if you’re next and nobody is left to speak for you? My god man, this could happen to any one of us!!

    A) Swat guys are cops but you can see regular cops in all the videos, and SWAT officers responding after things got out of control.

    B) So I guess you’re claiming the cops shot and killed their own officers to “cover up” their attack on this grifter?

    C)If you’re not stealing cars, running Internet scams and getting in to shootouts with cops how would this happen to you?

    Put the bong down, stop listening to infowars and get a job hippy.

    Good article! Was looking for something like this… Saw worlds wildest police videos tonight and saw this Jerry Kane & son incident. Wanted to know more, seemed shady! But you’ve seemed too solve it. Grifter.

    Still the fact remains though, USA is crazy
