The fact those officers haven't been charged and arrested is farking shameful.

Some inmate swore that she was totes running a child drug ring out of her apartment. Coincidentally, that inmate was also just released for from prison after being sentenced to life.

Nothing will change and the officers will remain officers.

Because white people will so totally riot when they are indicted.  Right?

Nadie_AZ: Nothing will change and the officers will remain officers.




On June 23, 2020, Officer Brett Hankison was fired for his actions during the raid. In his termination letter, his chief says Hankison's conduct "displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life" and is a "shock to the conscience" as he "wantonly and blindly fired ten (10) rounds". The chief blamed him for the gunshots that led to the Napper lawsuit.[14] On September 15 the City of Louisville agreed to pay Taylor's family $12 million and reform police practices as part of a settlement.[15]

I believe that his chief is 100% correct in his assessment. These officers should face charges. We're supposed to hold cops to a higher standard.

If they let them off scot-free.....I wouldn't blame anyone who takes to the streets.

Sometimes it's the only way that people will learn that actions can have consequences

Pretty sure he specifically told them to get bent. But they might have found some rando...

It would be a lot simpler and way cheaper to just stop killing black people.

The Nazi party turned a plurality (barely) into effective rule by effectively stopping the street violence that plagued the Weimar Republic, and instituting FDR style economic policies.

Well, that's one way to try to get ahead of the narrative.

What's the point of the police having guns if they can't shoot people?

Cops and DA would rather an entire city be burned to the ground instead of a couple of trigger happy, incompetent cops be brought to justice.

Based on their preparations, I'm guessing they investigated themselves and found no wrong-doing.

Nutjobs they may be but you seem to be confusing "protesting" with "rioting" which seems to be a common misunderstanding amongst folks on both the right and the left ends of the political spectrum.
 
2020-09-21 9:40:22 PM  
They'll indict.

But they'll wait a while to find them not guilty.

Maybe not.

If LAPD had taken these minimal precautions instead of arrogantly assuming they could take on all comers, the LA riots might not have happened.

got my popcorn ready to watch the city burn. As it should if they don't have an indictment issued

LAPD let the riot happened to punish the people for having dared put one of their own on trial.  They pulled back the entire force and let the violence escalate until it was too late.

Resident Muslim: Seems like Chief knows something we don't.


Probably precedent.

I recall an incident a while back where some guy swatted someone over the internet. The cops showed up and blasted the (white) victim before asking any questions, but they never went to jail for it. Instead that fell on the swatter. I'm not sure if they ever paid a settlement.

If it was proved that Taylor was killed in the return fire then you probably can't get the guy who pulled the trigger (since he was shot at first).  The boyfriend will probably avoid charges based on self defense (if that still stands in that state).  So the question is if this really was the wrong house or if they had reasonable suspicion.
It's unfortunate for the family, but there was quite a large settlement because of that. There's no neat hole for this case to fit into.

The outrage machine doesn't take into account any such details tho. So I'd expect a riot no matter what the ruling is.

An officer was shot during the raid by Taylor's boyfriend, who has said he thought he was defending against a home invasion.

No, there was no "thought" he was defending against a home invasion.

The consensus of several of us here in the Ville is that Officer Hankinson will be the only one charged. It's pretty eerie here right now...like a green sky just before the tornado hits.

Nah, they'll pin it all on the one officer that they've already fired.
In addition to his involvement in the shooting, he's been accused by a few women of sexual assault.
He's the sacrificial lamb. Other officers will get lesser charges or nothing.
