I think about the training officers are suppose to have. I think about grown men being able to handle the situation without shooting someone to point of them succumbing to their wounds. And then I think about the countless times mass murderers are arrested with dying. https://t.co/OdcGLIKuKN
Exactly. Every time you want to try and justify #makhiabryant ‘s shooting, remember that the then 21 year old white supremacist, after murdering 9 Black people in Bible study, was taken to Burger King by the police. https://t.co/t9MEvcTDTG
Some bald white trainer who can’t even fact check (snopes) did the for you) who thinks a Black man deserved to die with a police officer’s knee on his neck. Do your Black clients know how you feel Lee Crawford? https://t.co/d9IXgvXmSA
Imagine signaling being held accountable in your job as the “destruction of a human being”. Then imagine the guy who sexual harassed women , who’s employer paid out 45mil in settlements, saying it. “Some people” and “them” ? Say it with a capital B you coward. https://t.co/BrcXzgnEiU
Cops are not judges.
Cops are not juries.
Cops are not executioners.
Cops are PEACE OFFICERS.
If your first instinct to de-escalate a situation is to murder the person involved, you shouldn’t be a cop and you damn sure shouldn’t have a gun.
Attorney General Merrick Garland: “Today, I am announcing that the Justice Department has opened a civil investigation to determine whether the Minneapolis Police Department engages in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” https://t.co/KByU4p5M7Rhttps://t.co/sOJ1gN3THk
I’m really upset that the media is already laying the groundwork for dismissing Ma’khia’s death. If police can arrest mass shooters with assault rifles, they can arrest a 16 year old girl with a knife.
Some people saw the video of a man being murdered and are pissed off at a guilty verdict. They are being very loud about it right now. Remember them. You don’t have to be friends with them anymore. You don’t have to go to their stupid fucking wedding or help them move. They suck
Chauvin’s defense hammered over and over and over that Chauvin did what any “reasonable police officer” would do. Thank you to the jury for affirming what we all knew and saw with our own eyes: It was NOT reasonable, it was criminal.
If you’re the party of “family values” but you don’t value Black children or transgender children or children you’re attracted to or children who don’t want to get gunned down at school, whose family are you valuing? Because it sure as hell isn’t mine.
We interrupt the coverage of the shooting of a 13-yr-old boy that interrupted coverage of traffic stop shooting of a 20–yr-old man that interrupted coverage of Derek Chauvin trial for the killing of George Floyd for news of 8 ppl killed at Fedex facility in Indianapolis
