    South Park is definitely going to an episode on these cops killing black people in their own homes.

    This seems worse than what Guyger did. Remind me not to leave my door open to let in some fresh air.

    Can you imagine how the neighbor feels? The neighbor essentially killed that women by making that call. Unfortunate, of course the neighbor likely thought there was a break in.


    Police just need to chill the **** out. Just like us civilians aren’t supposed to believe were in some drama action movie where every cop is out to kill us, cops should do the same and not suspect every citizen is about to unload on them. It’s hard for either side to do with all of the big stories of late.

    The job of keeping the peace, de-escalating has turned into FACK FACK PUT YOUR HANDS UP NOW FACK RIGHT NOW BANG BANG BANG BANG far too often.

    The edited body cam footage is also disgraceful, makes it seem super obvious that the cop seriously ****ed up.

    I kind of just scanned the thread title at first. Assumed it was an OLD bump not something new.

    Something is fishy about the gun, it looks copy and pasted with ms paint. How can you see the gun with it being dark, high window, and last show it on the floor. No wonder they wont release the unedited version.

    How about mind you own business. Society is so quick to call in the goon squad these days.

    There was a time on this country when police weren't the goon squad and could do a welfare check without murdering someone.

    Some people born during those times don't realize they are actually calling for Judge Dredd to come around and dispense justice when they call for a welfare check. They expect Officer Friendly to show up and make sure everybody is safe.

    Its depressing that it seems they are setting up the argument that she had a (perfectly legal) gun in her own home, wasn't even holding it and didn't respond within .5 seconds to mumble-mouth yelled police commands and so it is a justified shooting. Even more depressing that there are probably a whole bunch of cops who think he did exactly what he should have done.

    I doubt the fact she was black had anything to do with it, the popo fired in like half a second.

    Why not announce themselves at the front door, knocking, instead of walking around the house quietly shining lights through windows? If I was the homeowner, I would have thought they were burglars.

    Didn't even say he was a Police officer too. Just, "SHOW ME YOUR HANDS SHOWME YOU HANDS POP!"

    They'll just say, "Why didn't you comply within 2 seconds"

    I normally side with police, but I have no clue why these guys were snooping around the back door instead of announcing themselves at the front. Not sure if there's a reason for that, or for not parking in front of the house with lights on so that people would know they're there.

    Apparently they do this and have dogs run up on them (no ****) and often quickly shoot the dog with no repercussion. Don' get me wrong, a human is more important, but the dog shootings don't seem to get any coverage and happen more often. Someone shoots at me or my dog, I'm shooting back if I have the means.

    the neighbor saw that the door was open in the middle of the night and thought there might've been a break-in or something was wrong.
