    I hope the prosecution team knows that if they don't secure a conviction they are basically going to repeat last summer's protests. I'm not a lawyer so I don't know how often this happens, but it seems incredibly foolish to not use your strikes against two jurors who openly state that they dislike black lives matter.

    Seems like the cop who's POV we watched from was actually doing a good job trying to deescalate the situation until that bitch on the scooter barged on to the scene

    Yeah that’s just an unfortunate terrible situation. Doesn’t really belong in the thread. They tried their best. She raises it charging they had to fire

    I disagree. They didn’t have to shoot her they could have used less than lethal weapon. But, they aren’t as bad as most itt.

    i kind of agree, the second cop should have used a taser too. Not sure if the first one missed or if she was so high that it didn’t work.

    That’s really not a bad one. That’s classic suicide by cop and it really sucks for the cop who was doing a good job and tried to taser. I bet that one will stay with him.

    WTF was the lady in the scooter thinking?

    We've got a volatile situation here with someone that is admittedly suicidal - let me just antagonize her and get in the way of the police process as much as possible.

    I say this every time - but I still don't know how there aren't better/more effective non-lethal options utilized by major police departments given the economic and technological resources we have at our disposal as a country.

    I feel like a person trained at throwing a damn casting net could have made that situation non-fatal.

    I mean obviously she shouldn't have charged the cop but at the same time that little woman carrying an axe can't run as fast as the cop. Just turn and run. The other cops shot her when there was no need. They were in a rural field with all day to waste. If 3 cops can't take her down without shooting here, that's an issue. If that was a test and they got $1m for taking her in alive, I guarantee they could have. Cops just don't value it as much as they should.

    This was literally my first thought was I would just sprint away and reposition and try to talk her down again.

    But that could have easily result in scooter grandma getting hit with a pick-axe since she was right there so I'll admit that would be an extremely risky move.

    Also, have no idea the athletic ability of the cop in question. One false step and it's a horror film.

    One of the other cops would have tackled her from the side. If that were their kid, they'd find a way. Again, if they got a reward for bringing her in alive, they would have.

    Knee on neck right at the end of the video (0:27)


    Image Description: CW: attempted murder From a second story vantage point we see a group of people near an intersection, on the road, just off the sidewalk. Cops on the other side of a squad car in the intersection pin someone to the ground. Continued

    In the crowd by the sidewalk, 2 cops fight w/ someone. The cop throws the person on top of another cop as two more cops get involved. One, shoving people on the sidewalk, the other shoving people on the road. Continued

    The cop that threw a person onto another cop then punches that person repeatedly in the kidney. The cop pushing people in the road is thrown back by one of the people he was trying to push. The cop pushing people on the sidewalk is still pushing people. Continued

    Sidewalk pushing cop walks back towards the cruiser. Behind the cruiser, they are still arresting someone pinned to the ground. A person comes over to assist the person being punched and is dragged away by other cops. Continued

    The person who was pushed onto the cop then repeatedly punched in the kidney and belly has been dragged off the cop and is laying belly down in the snow with roadway shoving cop sitting on their waist. Continued

    Their head hangs off the curb, their shoulders just barely on the curb. The cop that threw them on the other cop pins their upper body, then lifts his body off of them for a moment, locates the person's neck, and drops his knee on it with his full body weight... The video ends

    Perhaps cops should be trained on how to use good old fashioned lassos, on second thought, no lassos, that could have real bad consequences for black folks.

    This is a joke, right? Six months after he was murdered, defense attorneys find drugs linked to him in the SUV? You really want me to believe that? They literally planted their defense 6 months after the fact and will use it in court. The fact that it's being admitted into the trial is gross.

    Chauvin's attorney says he and other lawyers found George Floyd's drugs in back of police car

    MINNEAPOLIS — During routine motions Monday afternoon, Derek Chauvin's attorney Eric Nelson revealed that investigators apparently missed something in the back of the police car officers tried putting George Floyd into the evening he died.

    "It was very apparent what was in Squad 320 was controlled substances," Nelson said.

    The Minneapolis Police Department squad car has been in storage at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension garage pending this trial. One day a couple months ago, Nelson, along with the other defense attorneys and some staff members, went there to look over the car.

    Inside, Nelson said they spotted some chewed up pills and a full pill. And the state tested them.

    "They are in fact methamphetamine and fentanyl, and they contain the DNA of George Floyd," Nelson said.

    The implication is that the drugs were in Floyd's mouth, and he spit them out when the former officers were trying to place him in the police car.

    The state has given no explanation how the BCA could have missed that potential evidence.

    Nelson brought it up Monday in the course of arguing for the 2019 arrest of George Floyd to be allowed as evidence, which Judge Peter Cahill said he most likely will not allow it.

    But the drug evidence itself will likely play a key role in Chauvin's defense. They plan on claiming Floyd died of a drug overdose rather than from Chauvin's knee on Floyd's neck.

    In December, the BCA had to search Floyd's car a second time, because they failed to collect some pieces of evidence. According to a search warrant, they ended up finding fentanyl and meth.

    Blind firing into an apartment is unimaginably irresponsible, especially if it’s a cheap apartment complex. Not only are you firing blind into one apartment, those bullets could easily go into the next apartment down.

    Their protocol is to confiscate and perform a field test on any suspected illegal substance. Instead these two each made they boy take drinks of highly potent liquid meth to prove his claim. His heart gave out.

    The article says they are still on the job today and not facing criminal charges. Border Patrol admits that protocol was broken by not performing the field test and encouraging the boy to drink it. No choice but to admit it since it’s caught on video and shared by ABC News. His family was paid a million dollars to settle their lawsuit. So business as usual.

    Poor kid tho. It said after just four sips, his temperature spiked to 105 degrees and his heart was at 220 beats per minute.

    I didn’t catch that the first time till I reread it. Must’ve been around the time the border wall hype was building. Needed border patrol to be heroes not murderers.

    Actually 8 years old. Not that it changes anything.

    “On November 18, 2013, 16-year-old Cruz Marcelino Velazquez Acevedo crossed the border from Tijuana, Mexico into the United States. Then, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Ysidro Port of Entry spotted two bottles of amber liquid in Acevedo’s possession.”

    I'm pro-unions but police unions are just disgusting. They are a large chunk of the issue we have right now. They fight like hell to keep piece of shit cops employed and in turn ruin public support for the entire force.

    most cops suffer because of this. The unions care more about protecting bad cops than good ones. Good ones have a much harder job because of the lack of trust.

    I always think back to when Larry Krasner burst on the scene and said, "I don't hate police unions, I hate their leadership, because they are in no way representative of the officers in their locals."

    Right. I think unions should be there to benefit the employees as a whole, not everybody single one even when they do wrong. That goes for all unions, not just cops.

    At most jobs, if you have a bad day the company loses some production. As a cop, if you have a bad day people die. Protecting bad employees (or just employees that have been off of late) is okay in one of those situations and absolutely wrong to do in the other.

    Yea I get it on small stuff. Even a cop going through a lot at home and caught sleeping under a tree on the clock or something like that. I don't even know what a comparison would be for an employee in a production plant.

    The Echo Park story is fascinating and enraging. A whole group of homeless people were getting well supported by the local community and basically weren't bothering anyone. LA decided they still needed to be dispersed and the camp removed.
