Reader of Best Gore from Oregon, who asked to remain anonymous because he fears the cops will execute him next, told me the driver of the van was constantly harassed by the police, who even made public remarks abut their grievances with the guy. They had a beef with the guy and publicly executed him as a show of force and intimidation for the rest of the public. He also said that if you want to be the law while breaking the law, join a PD in Central Oregon.
The incident happened at 10:30pm on December 23, 2016 (Christmas). 31 year old Michael Tyler Jacques was driving his van home after visiting a family and that presented the cops with the opportunity to harass him in a new show of force.
The cops pulled him over at the intersection of Bond Street and Franklin Avenue, and stopped their vehicles in such a way so as to block his van’s passage. Officer Marc Tisher got out of his vehicle with his gun drawn and instantly proceeded to intimidate the driver. His colleague, Scott Schaier, forced the van door open and used force to try to yank the driver out, without telling him he was being detained or otherwise explaining what was going on.
In his report, Marc Tisher wrote he observed Jacques moving his hands slowly, which worried him because he found the slow raise of the hands confrontational. Tisher also said Jacques didn’t look like “a deer-in-the-headlights scared citizen“, which made him realize that “this was something that needed to be stopped.” Apparently, if a cop doesn’t like the facial expression you are wearing, it’s justified to execute you. An even better get told by Tisher is “As soon as I looked at the driver, I knew this was not going to go well,” – no shit, you went into it with your gun drawn. You didn’t care about assessing whether there is a threat before drawing your weapon. You went into it with the intention to kill. Isn’t that why you went from pulling the guy over to executing him in 27 seconds? Isn’t that why neither of you made any attempt to deescalate the situation?
Because Michael Tyler Jacques had been assaulted by the cops multiple times for no reason in the past, he suspected they just wanted to get their rocks off on him again, and tried to defend himself against the abuse. For that, Officer Schaier tased him with his stun gun twice, and then maced him in the face with his pepper spray, while he was inside his vehicle being tased by officer Tisher.
The minivan then rolled forward, as if the muscle tension and rigidness caused by the multiple taser shots, and the blinding by the mace made the driver involuntarily slam on the gas pedal. That was all officer Schaier needed to execute the guy he’d had a hard on for for a long time.
Scott Schaier fired five rounds, hitting Michael Tyler Jacques in the head and shoulder blade, killing him. After executing the guy, the cops hid behind their car as if the dying man was somehow gonna Jason Bourne his way out of the fatal head shots. Instead of trying to save his life, they made sure he does not receive aid before he’s surely dead.
On July 10, 2017, the Oregon Department of Justice announced it would not prosecute Schaier or Tisher. Meanwhile, the entire law enforcement community from the area rallied around the murderers in attempt to impugn the character of the victim, claiming he was drunk, and concocting a PR campaign to cover up the murder. Good cops… yeah right!
