Conthan: mrwknd: Yeah right, who looks stoned here?

[img.fark.net image 850x478]

My vote is the one who forgot where she lived.


I find that story hard to believe (there are numbers on apartments). it is the apartment above hers and as someone with a loud upstairs neighbor who stomps around I predict what actually happened was that she went home tired and grouchy and heard stomping and went up to be biatchy about it and because she is above the law when he told to fark off she shot him.
as someone who lives in a legalized weed state I am confused about why finding some would justify murder. but hey the police kill unarmed black people all the time with impunity so maybe they don't consider it murder since murder tends to come with a poison sentence.

Eugene, Oregon has 20 marijuana dispensaries, but they're a bigger city than Springfield, plus Eugene is a university town.


That's too bad.  But I'm sure that the number could be reduced by some good drug education in the schools plus some outreach to abusers.


A man was killed.
Police are suspected of planting evidence.
And all you can farking do is pull your cannabevets bullshiat?

A good piece of advice...  Spend $200 and get yourself a camera in your house.  There are a bunch out there that are cheap, easy to set up, and are a live feed to a server outside of your house.

So when some asshole walks into your apartment and shoots you for no reason, the record of the entire thing is on a server outside of anyone's control.  It can be accessed to see once and for all what really happened.

Not that this person would still be alive right now.  But at least the bullshiat character assassination would not be happening.

Like many things in this world, you cannot rely on anyone to protect you except you.

dopirt: I knew Bo.   My company used PwC to prepare for our actual yearly audit with D&T.  He interviewed me a few times over a financial system I worked on.  He was the nicest auditor we've ever met. We all liked him.


Yeah but that was just a front. In reality he was the thuggest thug to ever thug. They have his corpse by the balls though with the kilos ounce of pot they planted found in is his apartment.
 
2018-09-14 09:06:55 AM  
Whoever let this little tidbit out really has a knack for making a bad situation worse. It wasn't enough to kill him. You had to rummage around through his stuff, and then tell everyone what you found.

Here's an important question. What was in the cops apartment? We need photos. We also need to see every measurable blood value possible. From Cholesterol to how much LSD she had in her system.

hej: IlGreven: ...they do need to make up their minds, don't they? I mean, if this really were a case of mistaken residence, they wouldn't have to make up shiat to cover her tracks, right? I mean, "innocent accident" should be enough to avoid a manslaughter conviction, even if it's enough for an indictment.

Manslaughter basically exists for situations of "somebody died because I'm a moron."


The Texas statute puts basic death by moron falls under negligent homicide. Manslaughter is a step up to reckless dickhole fatalities. Then murder is what we have here, where a shooter tries to shoot a shootee who does in fact get shootified. Capital murder is that, plus some aggravating circumstance like being an absolute farkstick.

She is a police officer being held accountable for a shooting. Is that not enough of a trauma for her? Do we really need to add to her suffering imprisonment in a cell?

Quick and easy ways to make meaningful changes to policing:

1) No more qualified immunity. Individual officer actions are held to the same standards of scrutiny as the gen pop.

2) No more taxpayer-funded civil judgements. Individual officers should personally have to pay for misdeeds.

3) Immediate comprehensive training in firearms safety and "de-escalation" tactics for every single officer in the USA.

4) Permanently disband police unions. The police work for the public, not for a union.

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

I'm curious if they can tie the bag to him with something other than "location".

Any DNA of his on the bag? Absent that, as a juror, I don't buy it.

Why would that be relevant?  If I was a juror I'd ignore it.


I would take it as evidence of a coverup.

I don't see any indication that investigators are looking at the pot as some type of justification for the killing, or trying to sully anyone's name after death.
Transparency of the investigation is being demanded, and the media are reporting what was pulled from the crime scene during the investigation. There are any number of ways shoes, drugs, cat litter, or a salad spoon on a homicide scene could be determined useful to an investigation... useful to the prosecution or defense. One of the drawbacks of immediate "transparency" before an investigation is complete - ignorant people run with speculation & assumptions, shut out details that go against what they want to believe, and get very emotionally invested in their one-dimensional ignorance.
Where is anybody seeing the victim being somehow *blamed* in wrong-doing for having a bag of weed on his table, or that it's being used to justify entering his apartment or his death? That's a total strawman. They haven't even indicated that it's his weed, or that it is illegally purchased, or anything. It was pulled from a homicide scene.

Snarfangel: I want to know what they found in the murderer's apartment. I bet it's a hell of a lot more exciting than pot.


I'd like to know this too.
But by now, if they haven't searched it yet, they'll probably find typed letters saying "stop complaining about noise, pig, I'm an accountant and a drug lord" with no fingerprints on them.

As for the search warrant garbage and finding a small amount of pot, I willing to bet it was planted in the murder victim's apartment during the search.

I'm willing to put even odds on it her her pot.


That's what my money's on. Anyone wanna bet that the pot was in her backpack too?

koder: Two bullet casings, a police backpack and vest and 10.4 grams of marijuana were seized from Botham Jean's apartment

Lol, they didn't even take the backpack they used to set him up.  They were like, "shiat, just leave it... Makes it look like he stole it from us.". Tbh, I say do full forensics on that bag and find out how it came to be there. I bet it "magically" appeared, along with the casings from a gun he never had. farking joke of an investigation; the entire department should be fired if nobody steps up to hold this officer accountable.


Pretty sure that's the cop's backpack and vest that she left after the shooting along with the casings from the bullets that killed him.

I'm also pretty sure that's the cop's weed, too.

drayno76: 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.

bobug: First she said she unlocked the door, then entered, found him, felt threatened. Then she said she found the door open, and went in hot. Neither of those makes any farking sense, or can be confused for the other. If she's a trained cop, shouldn't she have immediately called dispatch for backup, holding the perpetrator at bay, as long as there was no direct threat? If the door was open, she should have stopped and called in immediately. Only an idiot would enter an open home, without backup, if they are in a job where retaliation may be an issue.


Actually at the very first she said that she couldn't get her key to work (because it was the wrong door) so she put down stuff she was holding to unlock the door. Then he opened the door, in his underwear, startling her into shooting him dead.

I'm guessing that story changed when neighbors pointed out that he had a bright red welcome mat (no other tenant had on) that would have been impossible to miss had she actually put anything down.
 
2018-09-14 09:45:58 AM  
Someone, who also lives in that building, posted a video to Twitter yesterday. In it, s/he demonstrates that the apartment doors swing shut automatically and lock from the inside. The cop claims (now) that his door was ajar. She is lying.

Releasing the results of this search to news media was strategy to assail his character and nothing more.

What did the investigators find in the killer's apartment?

If they didn't search it, that fact should be made transparent, right? If they did search it, everything found there should be made transparent, right?

But that hasn't happened. Instead there's a one-sided release of information to make the victim look bad. And you're saying you don't see that.

First steps:

Repeal the peace officers bill of rights in every state. It's only effect is to make it harder to get rid of bad cops.

Abolish police unions for the same reason.

Establish a state level prosecutor solely responsible for prosecuting police misconduct. And officer that will not need to rely on police testimony and prosecuting other crimes. That way, there is no incentive to go easy on them.


Additionally successful lawsuits are funded by the police pension and not the taxpayer. Put their skin in the game

I once attempted to unlock a neighbor's door.

I had been living at the complex for less than a week. When my key failed to open the lock I first re-checked the door that I was attempting to access. Upon realizing that I was at the wrong door, I abandoned my effort.

Somehow, despite carrying a concealed weapon on my person at the time, I did not even consider making an attempt to force my way inside and draw my firearm. Clearly I lack the training and aptitude to be a police officer.

This reminds me of two fellow college students who went diving in a lake in Florida and found a cave and went in.  They ended up getting lost and drowning.  For reasons I still don't comprehend the police searched their apartment and found a quarter pound of weed.  They nicely decided not to tell the patents that their kids were drug dealers.
