My boss (or rather his boss) gave the go-ahead for all of us to leave and work from home.

They'd rather have their city burned to the ground than one of theirs go to jail for a crime they committed.

Just a reminder for the "alternative facts" brigade:

Yes, burning down shiat in protest is wrong. Police killing an innocent person and lying about it is MORE WRONG.

Look - maybe my logic is off - but in a country that has a second amendment and where people have the right to arm and protect themselves, I don't see how we can allow "no-knock" warrants to be served excepting with an understanding that those who choose to do so will do so at their own risk, not be indemnified against the consequences.
These guys broke into an innocent citizen's home, unannounced and with guns out - and people got shot.
That can't be on anybody but them. If it is, then your precious Second Amendment means nothing, and your right to bear arms can be cancelled by any trigger happy nimrod with a badge.
And if the authorities aren't willing to accept that level of responsibility, they need to stop issuing no knock warrants.

Its high times for people who invested in lighter fluid.

I fully expect this to be treated like sports.
There will be riots if justice fails and they skirt off without punishement.
There will be riots in exultation if justice prevails.

CSB. Before the second Rodney King related verdict, LA expected the same crisis.   Everyone and business reviewed and modified its earthquake protocols, and checked supplies.

However, in the days and nights leading up, to go out to eat or to Santa Monica pier, everyone was extra friendly, courteous,  and nice to each other.  All were truly enjoying peace and the company of other people, knowing that what could change and last for a long time.

It was a time of All Wagand No Bark.

They are preparing for a riot because no matter what is announced, there are people who will use it as an excuse to riot.

I expect that there will be riots by either losing side in this, and this is not even a trial, this is just to say whether or not there will even be a trial, if they do announce charges and then they are exonerated.. think Rodney King 2.0

Anyway - a lawful society can only be based on a social contract - and there have to be two parties to a contract, and provisions and incentives to observe said contact.
The state cannot ignore it's side of the contract and expect the people to observe theirs - that isn't human nature.

Eight shots hitting her while she slept.

Thats not true. What, exactly, are you implying? Nevermind, I think we both know.

Not really, if they have the ability to work from home they shouldn't have been in the office to start with. I've set foot in the office twice since March 15th and that was because I needed to use physical QA hardware in a way that couldn't be done remotely. If your job doesn't require physically being in a particular place then you shouldn't be in a shared indoor space.

My boss's boss insisted we all return to the office. Of course, he just bought a house 1,600 miles away in Florida where he's moving to so he can stay remote. I go into the office and shut my mouth so I can stay employed during a world wide pandemic.

Once upon a time no knock warrants were rare and only issued when police had hard evidence that they were about to walk into a place with 1. Known bad guys 2. Known bad guys with guns that are likely to shoot at cops 3. Long delays at the door might allow bad guys to destroy evidence.

It did not take long for police departments to start talking judges into issuing no knock warrants anytime cops wanted them.

Keep in mind that the prosecutor (who works with and for the police) is the only one presenting evidence to the grand jury.  The grand jury can only consider what the prosecutor says and what the witnesses that the prosecutor calls say.  And those witnesses are confined to only answering the questions asked.  With that in mind, someone leaked to me a few portions of the transcript of the grand jury proceedings, which are always closed:

PROSECUTOR:  Officer *****, please tell us about your daring and heroic raid on the den of criminal activity known as Breona Taylor's drug den?

OFFICER *****:  Well, the first thing we noticed was the pile of dead bodies that were surrounding the front door.  Their eyes had been carved out.  And they were all naked.  What was interesting to us was "WE WILL KILL ALL COPS" was written in pure colombian cocaine on their skin.

PROSECUTOR:  And what happened after you nobly and bravely entered this wretched hive of scum and villainy?

OFFICER *****:  I'll never forget this, the decedent, Ms. Taylor, yes she was on her bed.  BUT, she was levitating in the air like one of those demons or ghosts in a movie.  And in each hand she was carrying two rocket propelled grenades.  As her head started twisting around in a full circle, we could hear an otherworldly voice saying ALL COPS ARE *******."

* * * *

PROSECUTOR:  Now, were you wearing body cams at the time.

OFFICER *****:  Yes, but the demonic interference from the residents of the drug den caused all of them to not work.  Damndest thing I ever saw.

* * * *
PROSECUTOR:  That all sounds very traumatic, for you and the accused officers.

OFFICER *****:  Yes, it was, it was terrible for all of us.  I could use a hug.

[Prosecutor hugs Officer *****]

PROSECUTOR:  And please, I urge every single member of this fearless, American grand jury to come down and give a hug to poor Officer *****.


So yeah, I wonder how it's going to go.

OK, here's the plan.

1. Drive to Owensboro, quick as you can.

2, At about 12:45, start driving back to Louisville.

3. Get to Louisville about 3:00. 1:30 never happens.

No, there was body cam footage.  They just don't want to admit it exists (2 of the 3 officers had cams, despite the claim that nobody did.  How do we know?  One was photographed after wearing his, and the other was photographed with his camera's mount on, but the camera removed.)

Probably. To them it will "prove them right" somehow, like, "See? Everyone is a criminal! We are justified in being so reckless and violent!"

Hopefully justice will be done, but history has shown us that is rarely the case when it comes to holding police accountable.

I don't see good things ahead.

Yup.
The sad thing is the focus is only on the cops were serving the warrant.
The criminals that would be easiest to convict would be the ones that falsified documents and committed perjury to get a bad warrant issued for their own ulterior agenda.

And also, getting a civil settlement is NOT the same as getting justice in a court of law.
 
2020-09-23 12:11:53 PM  
There will be no charges brought against the officers, because as we already know when it's one person at fault they get the blame, but when it's multiple people at fault there is no blame (or blame bureaucracy).

History doesn't always repeat itself, but it sure as hell likes to rhyme.

My guess is at the most Hankinson gets a Wanton Endangerment charge.  Everyone else skates.

You don't shut down buildings and government facilities unless you know that you're anticipating the result. They did that in Ferguson back in 2014.

Besides, they know that the only thing that's going to happen is that a couple of buildings get set on fire. It ain't like government officials are scared.
