Warning: **Disturbing Images**
Just hours after a police officer was reportedly executed on the streets of Paris by Islamic terrorists, edited video footage of the incident has emerged.
In the original video, played at normal speed, it appears that the officer pleading for his life was executed at point blank range.
Original amateur video:
One Youtube publisher has slowed down the video, and the new footage has raised some eyebrows.
As depicted in the slow-motion version, it appears that the weapon being fired at the officer has no recoil. Moreover, the officer’s body does not seem to respond like it should when being shot at point blank with a 7.62×39 AK47 round and no blood is shown after the firearm is discharged at him.
Some have suggested that the original video has been faked, though this is unlikely as other witness videos show that the incident did, in fact, happen. Moreover, at least 11 people have been confirmed dead in Paris.
Another possibility is that the attacker missed his shot and the unarmed officer played dead after the fact. Paris police have not confirmed his death as of this writing, so this theory is unconfirmed.
Alternately, it has been suggested that while it was originally thought the officer was shot in the head, it could have been a fatal body shot :
That is NOT a Head Shot!
Bullet has gone through the Ballistic vest at upper shoulder, to exit in the front. Dust is from the STEEL CORE ammunition hitting sidewalk. Blood splatter contained by front vest. At 2600 ft. per sec. 126 gr. if it hit his head at that range his head would have exploded like a melon. His chest/internals are mush. Shock wave.
At this point it is not clear exactly what has transpired and the public is awaiting news from Paris police on this matter.

UPDATE FROM A SHEEP NO MORE: French officials are saying that one of the “alleged” gunman left his ID in the getaway car (how convenient, just like the passport of the “so-called” 9/11 high jacker had miraculously survived and was found in tact, whilst 3 buildings pancaked to the ground). One Suspect in the Paris attack turned himself in and two others remain at large. 12 confirmed dead.
See story from The Wall Street Journal below:
PARIS—Investigators chasing the two brothers who “allegedly” attacked satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12, found an improbable clue in their abandoned getaway car: a national identity card, according to French officials.
The document carried the name of 34-year-old Said Kouachi, a man with no police record, the officials said. But, following the trails, investigators dug out court files of his brother, Chérif Kouachi, 32, who was sentenced to an 18-month prison term in 2008 for being part of a terror group, according to Paris prosecutors.
A manhunt was under way Thursday for the two—France’s most wanted men—but officials warned it could take days to find the heavily armed suspects. A third suspect has turned himself into police.
Police are questioning seven other people as part of the manhunt, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said, and had searched an apartment in the eastern city of Reims overnight.
Police officials said they were puzzled as to whether the ID card of the elder Mr. Kouachi had been dropped by accident or had been left voluntarily, in a move to claim responsibility for the attack.
“You cannot rule out the possibility they left the ID intentionally,” said Emmanuel Quemener, a police officer affiliated with the Alliance union. Continue story here.
