Just one more reason to practice proper trigger discipline.

The cop got tazed and because his farking finger was on the trigger, his finger twitched along with the rest of his body and the weapon discharges. The cop's hand also twitched to the side a little from the taser shock causing the victim to take the bullet in the shoulder instead of the chest. The cop was more than likely aimed at "center mass"

Just my 2 cents.

Just to watch him die

That's a no-no.
 
2020-08-11 12:09:00 PM  
SO, I presume they'll be charging the driver with assault for making the cop shoot the other cop with his taser and with attempted murder against himself for making the cop shoot him.

Good to know that cops are trained in trigger discipline. My dad would have kicked my ass if he saw my finger on the trigger before I was ready to shoot.

AND they were all standing around the suspect who was clearly not threatening them in ANY way with their guns drawn on him, and by extension one another.  AND they were all yelling, instead of one person yelling clear commands.  AND they ALL farking panic more than the suspect the entire time.

Every single one of those police and everyone involved in their training and certification ought to get booted over this one incident.  It is that incomprehensibly stupid.
 
2020-08-11 12:12:27 PM  
Highly trained officers who are required to qualify and maintain competency with their weapons should be forgiven for accidentally losing their minds and murdering people because they just want to go home to their families.

Ordinary citizens must maintain perfect discipline at all times including when being threatened by deadly force so as not to make a police officer afraid.

Gee it's almost like there is a reason you don't point your gun at someone with your finger on the trigger as a normal thing.  That's negligent as fark.

Just video after video of cops being farking assholes. I don't own a gun, but I've heard enough about proper trigger discipline to know that you don't rest your finger on the trigger. And these morons supposedly went through training in order to carry a weapon every day.

And also another video of cops escalating a situation unnecessarily. Instead of working with a guy who didn't seem that crazed, they just sit there yelling at him with their guns and tasers pointed at him. How is that supposed to ease any tensions?

Nothing but morons being improperly trained by morons.

no gun, not possible to accidentally anything with a gun.

Get cops that are not too chicken shiat, and it's not trigger discipline that saves the day b ut just not being too scared to do the job of PUBLIC SAFETY.

If the job IS PUBLIC SAFETY, then it is not reasonable for you to become part of the danger problem in the first place.

Standard beat cops DO NOT NEED GUNS. Guns should only show up with officials for possible use in public under special circumstances. Not as par for the course in standard daily traffic stops and other day to day police activities.


The job is make the public space safer, keep the public safe, ensure the public trust.
A gun is not needed to preform this job day today, just courage and a willingness to care about the public safety enough to take personal risks on your self is what the job requires.

If someone's first thoughts as police, are to their own personal safety and they draw a gun in public for this proactive, they have immediately failed at the job of upholding the public trust. This is someone too chicken  selfish to be a police officer among us.

Watch the footage. I want to point out that there were six cops surrounding him. Five had weapons drawn. At least one had a Taser, but two had what appear to be farking sem-automatic weapons, and one had a pistol. All because they were facing one guy who didn't want to be taken into custody - keep in mind, he wasn't attacking anyone, he just didn't want to kneel and told them "I'm going to run - here are my things."

None of those cops were in danger at any time. He wasn't hostile. He just wasn't doing what they wanted him to do. So they shot him. First with a Taser, then with a firearm. The cops freaked out once he started to bleed out, but that's because THEY JUST SHOT A NON-VIOLENT PERSON FOR NO GOOD REASON. And, yeah, they don't put a tourniquet on a "non-life-threatening injury," asshole.

He was the very definition of "resisting without violence." That's not what lethal weapons, or non-lethal alternatives, are for, assholes.

The fun part? He got a ticket. That's it. They shot him with a Taser and a gun, just so he could get "a citation for reckless driving and obstructing & resisting an officer."

This, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with law enforcement. That's a traffic stop in which six cops felt that surrounding a single, non-hostile person with drawn guns & Tasers, then basically blaming him for shooting him, is somehow seen as merely an "oopsie" that'll get investigated in due course because, hey, it's a learning experience for everyone!
 
2020-08-11 12:22:28 PM  
I do love the end of the video where the one officer is shakily asking the calm dude who just got farking shot to "talk to me talk to me talk to me talk to me talk to me" while he tries to ask if he can stand and have some water.  But he isn't heard because the officer can't hear anything over the sound of their own panicked voice.

With all the ineptitude on display, I'm not sure I'm comfortable with any of those chucklefarks applying a tourniquet, let alone the specifically clumsy farkwit who LITERALLY JUST FARKING SHOT ME.

They're not required to "work with you" any more. "Compliance" is the new buzzword. It's your job to comply. It's not their job to cajole you into compliance. You'll comply if they have to beat, Tase, or shoot you into doing so. That's why our idea of "crowd control" is chemical agents fired from grenade launchers point-blank into the faces of protestors, and our idea of "negotiation" is yelling "STOP RESISTING!" while beating you with batons, and our idea of "custody" is "dead or alive, you're coming with me."

An additional note on this.  Riot guns.  For riots.  For crowd control.

The one officer is like "hurry hurry" when getting the canister loaded into his riot gun.  Because he felt there was an imminent need to stop a riot.

There was a single person there who wasn't a cop.

I'm completely on board with cops having one person in every unit trained to fire tear gas at his fellow police when they start to riot, if that's what we're seeing here.  And it's the ONLY LOGICAL REASON to have a riot gun while 6 police are arresting 1 suspect.

Possibly, and if that happens it will be the taxpayers footing the bill.

We need to stop this stupidity. Police unions should have to provide indemnity for their members, not the city or taxpayers. Something like CCW Safe would probably work best for the unions. The cops don't get a lot of complaints that lead to payouts in civil court? Their rates stay nice and low. They pull that "thin blue line" crap and play cover-up, their rates (which the union members are paying) will skyrocket.

It's so farking insane. And even in that video you had assholes in the comments saying "well if he had just complied...".

Never mind the fact that there are plenty of videos out there with people "just complying" getting farked up, including that guy who was murdered in the hotel hallway.

You get one special needs teacher out there and they would be able to handle the situation better than this group of shiat heads playing military dressup.

Let's even say this dude was hopped up on all types of drugs. Who would deescalate the situation better? A group of cops armed to the teeth, all yelling at him or that one teacher speaking to him like they would speak to one of their students who was acting up?

No fan of cops here, at all.  But the driver precipitated this incident.  Once the driver decided to go rogue he put himself in that other place where anything can happen. And it did.

The footage shows a deputy fire his Taser when the driver disobeys commands. The dart misses and hits an officer in the knee. The officer then fires his weapon, hitting the driver in the arm.

Reminds me of Rule 41 of Peter's Evil Overlord List :
"I will make sure I have a clear understanding of who is responsible for what in my organization. For example, if my general screws up I will not draw my weapon, point it at him, say "And here is the price for failure," then suddenly turn and kill some random underling."
