Where did he get it? From Sandra Bland?

The copy has changed her story quite a lot, right? She's apparently going for a self-defense approach. NPR was talking about it the other day, and it sounds truly reprehensible. It's farking clown shoes. How is this even a contested item? She went into an apartment - clearly NOT her own - started a fight, shot and killed someone. She didn't call 911 before the confrontation, did she? Saying someone was in her house? Call for backup / support? Someone died, and they absolutely should NOT have died.

Cops can do no wrong in the eyes of badge bunnies. Expect to be sickened as the day progresses.

Is she wearing a towel?



Looks like her fellow Brothers in Blue didn't want her uniform shown for the booking photo, you know, makes the cops look bad when they have to go to court facing criminal charges.

2018-09-14 07:42:13 AM  

wejash: I cut them slack when the search affidavit indicated they were looking for evidence like shell casings.

Then when the news leaks about the weed, you understand exactly what they were doing.


Planting "evidence."
 
2018-09-14 07:43:34 AM  
6 days.  They had enough time to plant 500 guns and maps of white peoples homes with big red X's on each.  Maybe some pipe bombs.  Get one of the cops that understands computers to Google "Manifesto" ("See?  Office Bobo?  Manifesto isn't a Marvel Superhero" (But he soon will be (trademark pending, Stan Lee)) and write something up about hating Laws and order and Texans and big trucks what shoot freedom out of their exhausts.

Now I really feel bad for him, not only was he shot by a stupid drunk pig but he was almost out of weed too. 

That just hurts.

stirfrybry: Any farkers out there in the legal field that can help us design a road map for replacing the police force with a more accountable system? Is there even a legal way for the people to change how they are governed or is that beyond our control? Where the hell do we start?


Community policing is a good way to start I think. Make sure the officers are actually part of the community - your neighbors and friends and not someone with absolutely no ties to the area. Demilitarizing everyday officers would be a good idea too. Not every beat cops needs full tac gear.
 
2018-09-14 07:45:18 AM  
If she gets off, then tempted to sue the force for emotional damage since I now have to live in fear of an officer breaking in and murdering me for no reason.

Maybe we could make it a class action suit.
 
2018-09-14 07:45:38 AM  

Weaver95: wow.  so whatever this woman actually did must have been incredibly BAD.  like she just ignored procedure, training, common sense and sanity levels of bad.  I haven't seen THIS blatant a case of victim blaming in a while.

jesus f*ck texas - the hell is WRONG with you!?


They hire cops now for their ability to follow orders without question.  They don't want no high-falutin thinking types anymore.  Those are the ones that will try to de-escalate issues and think before they act.

Nah, much better to have someone who goes in, guns blazing...especially if the 'perp' is a PoC or immigrant.
 
2018-09-14 07:46:17 AM  

mrwknd: More likely the cop went back to her apartment, got her stash and put it in his apartment.

But, why did they need to search his apartment, was her apartment searched?


Well to be fair, his apartment was a murder scene so they do need to do some documentation and forensics, recover she'll casings etc.  Now, why they are rummaging through his stuff? No idea, and cant think of a legit teason. Love to see the text of the search warrant

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Wicked reefer magically turned his apartment into hers.


That evil second hand weed smoke could have snuck in to her apartment and caused her to lose her cop-like ability to immediate ascertain the situation and respond to it accordingly.


Vile vile weed.

This is my good friend Donald Trump.  He caught a wiff of second hand MJ smoke from a porn star, heard President Obama skewer him on the television and completely over reacted.

This entire situation is a farce.

Weaver95: furterfan: 1/2 oz of weed? in cop circles that's about - what? - $1000 street value?

ever since weed started becoming decriminalized, cops have had to stop doing that.  they were getting fact checked to an insane degree.


They still pull out that statistic here in Nebraska every time they make a bust on I-80.

Thankfully, all of our laptops (I work for PwC as well), are locked down and cannot be accessed. They are also monitored for all activity, so if something happened to his machine after he died, our IT department has a log of it. Not to mention that we have one of the largest IT Audit departments in the country.

All great ideas, but how do we make it happen? How do we force the police to change? How do we get the DA to stop letting cops slide for murder? The perverse incentives are systemic.

1/2 oz?  Well I for one am glad this drug czar was taken off the streets.   Think of the one maybe two people who might have gotten high and eaten all the funyons and Taco Bell in the area.   Truly one of the greatest monsters in history!

2018-09-14 08:03:45 AM  
It didn't take the PD long to find a way to denigrate him, in an attempt to justify murdering him. The cops had a plan to inject him into the system,having him fight the charges, wasting his time. I don't want to give the PD any ideas, like handcuffing his corpse in the casket, though I'm sure the thought has run across their minds. IMO, cops are thugs, you'd think since we fund them, we'd get some consideration when they make a mistake, not standing their ground and doubling -down on stupid.
 
2018-09-14 08:04:18 AM  

Munden: She and her family scrubbed their Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts before anyone even heard of her murder, but she forgot her Pinterest account.

Take a wild guess what that was filled with?

[images1.dallasobserver.com image 628x817]

Cop culture is a sickness.  The whole thin blue line mentality is a pernicious poison.


Well, if we learned anything from James Gunn, nothing can be scrubbed from social media.

Exactly.  His apartment could've been a grow operation, still doesn't help her look a half an ounce better.  She's still 100% a killer.

How much goes in a blunt, or doobie or whatever the kids call it nowadays?

I would think 0.3 oz is like 1 thing you smoke.

1/2 oz would last a pretty heavy smoker about 2 weeks

MyMindIsGoingDave: How much goes in a blunt, or doobie or whatever the kids call it nowadays?


I would think 0.3 oz is like 1 thing you smoke. Depending on the cigar paper, I've seen up to 7g blunts before.
I try to keep my rolled joints to between 2-3 grams and most my friends think they're a bit excessive. 

The answer is, "how big do you want it and how much weed do you have to contribute?" 

Prevailing Wind: Half and ounce is "almost out"? 😳


3g joints, 5 joints a day; yep that's all but out.

Please, Flint hasn't bothered citing people for half oz years before medical marijuana legalizing.  Just don't be rude to the cop, and he won't take it for himself.  They made it official in 2012. Leading up to the vote, the Flint police announced they weren't going to cite or arrest anyone for small amounts of weed anyway, this is just putting it in writing.
 
2018-09-14 08:13:55 AM  
Even odds they planted it.

I'd give higher odds if they hadn't arrested and charged Shooty McCagney yet.

There are numerous cases where cops have been caught on video killing people for no reason and still going free.

Hard to pick the most egregious example but that poor guy who was lying on the floor begging for his life while two cops yelled conflicting commands at him before murdering him is probably a good contender.
