    Scary?.., no… Actually ….terrifying!!! Can’t believe it’s been protested, exposed, and condemned for decades. And yet… it’s still happening.

    You have the right not to be killed. Murder is a crime unless it was done by a policeman (The Clash)

    They never seem to hold themselves accountable.

    We know why it happens. In fact all of the 5 W s are known — what, when, and who come as no surprise.

    Rank & file police officers are bound by training and tradition to immediately assert complete control of all situations that they are involved in, and by any means the responding officers deem necessary.

    Fine. Except that often results in the responding officer serving as judge, jury, and executioner. What level of education and/or training would qualify somebody — anybody — to have such amazing instant perception and god-like powers of life & death?

    Police are the reflection of the society its built in

    If you have a bad society you have a bad policing system

    Lotta cops killed in the line of duty, too, as well as civilians. Here in ultra-hyper-mega GOP, where the Replocos (such as Banks and Greg Pence) grow wilder and “invasive-er” every year, the super-majority legislature has pretty much obliterated all reasonable firearms control laws. And they did that over the trenchant objections of most police and their organizations, including the State Police.

    Dangerous bad cops are very expensive to keep on the force. Reform should be mandatory just based on fiscal responsibility for the community that pays the fines imposed by the courts when cops do evil stuff.

    I find it interesting that many times the picture posted of the victim is a mug shot, and they have a ‘rap-sheet’ of many pages. Mind you, I see no justification of shooting some one in the back while rung away from a traffic stop.

    Every once in a while though…they actually do the deed.

    There should be some sort of civilian oversight group/committee/organization to investigate all allegations of wrong-doing by any police officers/dept., who directly answer only to the attorney general or similar office of government.

    This is the INTENDED outcome.

    In Seattle, they are letting criminals out again and again without bail or with low bail.

    In the meantime they create a hostile environment for the police, and the police have quit. We have record low numbers of police.

    This is the formula for violence, and we have record violence, with and without the police.

    Congratulation Seattle wokes, mission accomplished. People are dying.

    “I though he had a finger-shaped gun on his hand” is also a popular justification.

    The other side of the record, “Juist walking down the street doing nothing” And " Even though he dropped out of high school, joined a gang, did drugs, he was a good boy, a very good boy!"
