Re: Law and Order 2

I was rousted by the police today for the second time in the last few months. I was just sitting in my truck reading on a lunch break. Cop just stopped and asked me what I was doing and my name. I failed to tell him to go **** himself.

Are you white? If not, good call. If so, then should have used your privilege here too and gone with the "go **** yourself".

It was a rich area and I may be a bit of a working class poser, but I didn't look like a local and there are class issues too. I probably wouldn't have been shot, but I may well have been pulled out of my truck, put on the curb, perhaps handcuffed and sat there for 20 minutes.

Still, if you're white, you're good. You may even get a huge settlement for having your civil rights violated. Almost a freeroll really.

Or his family gets the settlement...

Assuming there is video of the encounter to contradict the officers account.

Seattle police fatally shoot pregnant woman who they say confronted officers with a knife

Quote:
Seattle police officers shot and killed a woman at her apartment Sunday morning in front of “several children” when the woman, who relatives said was pregnant, “confronted” them with a knife, according to a statement from authorities.

The Seattle Times reported that the 30-year-old woman had called police to report a possible burglary.

They are basically being trained to shoot first and ask questions later. It's a combination of their us v. them dehumanization of the public and their obsession with how dangerous their job is and the safety of police officers being the primary concern. It's like they are at war with the public.

I wonder how much "guts and audacity" it takes to murder someone in front of their child.

I think the police departments are creating these people.

Re: Law and Order 2

LOL that's comforting. It doesn't seem to totally be nationwide, but there are definitely some "bad apples" (i.e. entire departments, including some major metros) that are incredibly reckless and wanton.

Re: Law and Order 2

I mean, that castille video was exactly what had been represented and described in the media and in the trial. obv horrible.

I do think the trayvon martin execution in cleveland was just as a bad. cops pull up and blast a 13 yr old playing with a toy gun. I think they were out of their car and shooting in less than 3 seconds. no warning.

As Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were shooting at a pit bull that was charging at them, a 17-year-old boy was apparently struck in the chest by one of the bullets and died, the sheriff's office said.

The shooting happened at about 3:45 a.m. today in Palmdale, California, after deputies responded to a report of loud music, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. As the deputies walked up the driveway, a 60- to 65-pound pit bull "aggressively charged at the deputies and attacked one of them," biting the deputy on the knee, the sheriff's department said.

Re: Law and Order 2

I hope people are holding it against these cops for the rest of their lives. If I ran across someone like this Joe Joswiak SOB googled them and found this, I would never extend them credit or work for them or hire them or anything for the rest of their ****ty life.

Re: Law and Order 2



Usually a cop can pull a driver over for driving while black with no consequences. This time the cops were a little unlucky.
