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.

cameroncrazy1984: I just thought of something. What if they release the bodycam footage and it's actually much worse than what we've been told, and that's why the lockdown?


The lockdown is happening because there's an outrage machine that will cause the city to burn down regardless of what the court outcomes are.
People aren't interested in evidence anymore than the lack of it. They don't want to hear a legal argument. Justice is irrelevant. They want to have a jubilee and it does not matter who is at fault. They'll burn down some low income housing or minority owned businesses just as soon as they'll torch a courthouse.  There's no methodology in a social disaster.

The city can't control the ruling and it knows that it might not even matter. So it must presume there will be a riot and make preparations to cut arrest agitators and protect the public as well as the city itself.
That they're already hurting for manpower just means they'll have to be that much more serious about their preparations.

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.


I'm with you. A venn diagram of Second amendment fanatics and people who think the cops were right seem to be a perfect circle. Yet this is true infringement on second amendment rights if law enforcement can kill you without consequence after showing up unannounced

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.

[Fark user image 279x181]

Good luck finding one for sale. I went to Bass Pro over the weekend just to , maybe, pick up some ammo... they had almost no guns of any kind in stock and aside from 30-06 and 12gauge they had no ammo to speak of either.

and the only stuff available on CheaperThanDirt is a bunch of  never heard of them brands, and even that is in short supply ammo wise.

S'why I picked the 30-06. Now if there were just some earthly way for one person to cover all 3 exits...

/didn't quite think that one thru


The good thing with 30-06 ammo is it's pretty much readily available. Built my first AR earlier this year and have watched 5.56 and .223 ammo become scarce as hell and creep up significantly in cost. 

Thankfully 7.62x39 is easier to get and cheaper which I'm sure is making a lot of AK guys feel superior right now.

way south: cameroncrazy1984: I just thought of something. What if they release the bodycam footage and it's actually much worse than what we've been told, and that's why the lockdown?

The lockdown is happening because there's an outrage machine that will cause the city to burn down regardless of what the court outcomes are.
People aren't interested in evidence anymore than the lack of it. They don't want to hear a legal argument. Justice is irrelevant. They want to have a jubilee and it does not matter who is at fault. They'll burn down some low income housing or minority owned businesses just as soon as they'll torch a courthouse.  There's no methodology in a social disaster.

The city can't control the ruling and it knows that it might not even matter. So it must presume there will be a riot and make preparations to cut arrest agitators and protect the public as well as the city itself.
That they're already hurting for manpower just means they'll have to be that much more serious about their preparations.


This, 100 times. It has never been about justice for anyone.

The Army took that from me when I retired. Bastards.

Not the Army's fault you considered a howitzer your personal defense device.  It was a 105mm for goodness' sake.

105, 155, 8 inch, 270. Was fortunate enough to have been able to shoot a fire mission on all of them.

RussianPotato: 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.

Until they release the bodycam footage, the girl is innocent until proven guilty. And by that, I mean, the police officers murdered her and should be charged as such.

If the cops are innocent, release the bodycam footage. If they announced themselves, it will be in that video.

Otherwise, they were defending their home from what could ONLY be perceived by any gun-owning American as a home invasion.
