    This is this officer's 5th officer-involved shooting.

    Fuck that. He said "Get on the ground" to someone 50 yards away and 2 seconds later he fired. Then the guy was on his knees and he said "Show me your hands" and again 2 seconds later fired more rounds. And that's his FIFTH shooting? I'm starting to think maybe that cop is the problem.

    Plus rapid fire with a 9mm from that far away you're going to have stray rounds going wide in a populated area.

    Cops really need a "don't fire until fired upon" ROE

    The bar for "I was in fear for my life" needs to be raiser much much higher than it is now.

    Shouldn’t have been standing there, I guess. On The Punisher thing, we’re at the point where Frank Castle would absolutely be murdering shitty cops if that were real now, right?

    I’m not sure if anybody watches these, but I was bored and caught an episode of SVU. The heavy handed way they are trying to “show” they get the issue at hand was laughable. In the episode, Benson was sued for arresting a black man, Fin was sued for shooting a black man holding a knife to his sons throat, and every other scene someone said “Things are different now. They see us as the bad guys,” It was laughable

    I also watch Chicago PD but at least they do a good job of attacking the question at hand. I know talking about cop dramas is silly, but I was wondering how these shows would handle the situation

    What in the actual fuck? Capitalism is a hell of a drug.

    Quick thought could the business be sued if someone gets sick from the food?

    Working had a grocery store in high school we did the same thing because of the supposed threat of liability. I think there are good samaritan laws that would completely prevent businesses from being sued in situations like this but it doesn't seem to matter.

    I'm pretty sure that's bullshit cuz legally the second something is thrown out its "public domain" per a 1988 Supreme Court ruling

    This is a bad look for the grocery store more than the cops. The cops are doing their jobs without (apparently) using excessive force.

    If we assume the liability was the issue, why couldn’t the grocer have an employee stand out that putting a half-assed effort to stop the ‘looting’. Would be an easy defense in the unlikely scenario a suit is filed.

    Their job is to "defend" a fucking dumpster???
    Miss me with this nonsense.

    Those mfs should be ashamed to look in the mirror for being party to whatever thoroughly inhumane shit this is.

    I agree, it’s insanity, but this just seems like a poor example of bad policing. If we assume the dumpster is private property, and there is a real liability risk, I don’t really understand what you’d expect them to do. The grocer is the one showing a lack of empathy. Can also throw shade at the legal system that (possibly) holds them liable for damages.

    *My stance is based on the apparent lack of force. If they started shooting people to protect that dumpster, obviously that’s a whole different situation.

    It's been pointed out that the liability is very likely not a thing. And regardless I'd like to live in a society where a police is able to assess the situation and make a judgement call to either extract themself from the situation entirely, or actively facilitate the people desperate enough to want what's in the dumpster getting the shit without a bunch of drama and conflict.
