WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHINESE DUMPLINGS!

"The authorities in Louisville, Ky., have charged Larynzo Johnson..."

No word on whether he was rolling in a Benzo.
 
2020-09-24 1:31:55 PM  
Was he shot at first?  'Cause the police involved in the Breonna Taylor shooting were shot at first by her boyfriend.  Or are we not allowed to mention that?

Those poor, delicious wontons.

I expect the full blown character assassination to begin around 2:45 pm today.  Trump will tweet by 4:30.

My assessment, he needs to be held accountable, if only to draw yet ANOTHER contrast between how police are expected to behave and how they expect the rest of us to respond.

I'm glad they didn't just pump him full of holes and lie about it.  So that's something.

I could endanger some wontons myself right now.

Cops and drywall get wanton endangement.  Black people don't.

Wonder if they bothered to get the right guy or if they just grabbed the first random black person they saw.

If we're also allowed to mention that no-knock warrants should NOT be a thing in this country and the whole incident happened because the police broke into someone's house in the dead of night without identifying themselves first because in the grand scheme of all things American, a woman's life isn't nearly as important as not allowing drug dealers the time to flush their drugs down the toilet.

So you think it's OK for cops to murder people.
Is it only OK if those people are black? Or is anybody fair game?

No-knock raids should never happen, but the AG said the cops did announce themselves.

Agreed, but the AG said it was confirmed by an independent witness. Every cop should have a body cam.

There's a vast difference between "announce" and "identify". If you're rich and white, you get "identify", where they come to your door and serve the search warrant. If you're poor or black you get "announce" after they kick down your door and a few seconds before they shoot you. It's a major distinction often lost on those who will naturally get the "identify" option by virtue of their station in life.

It is ok for cops to fire back when fired upon, no matter what the race of the person firing at them is.

/now, if the cops don't loudly announce themselves as cops in the above situation (as they should) when breaking down a door, does the above go away, even though that could cause a situation such as occurred in this case?
//apparently not

It sucks that potentially good cops(?) might potentially be harmed because their bad colleagues have a lot to answer for. If I were in that position I'd probably get out of that line of work.

According to one witness who changed their story at least twice. Twelve others maintain they heard nothing until shots rang out.

Isn't that exactly what happened in Texas last year? A cop lied to get a no-knock warrant, and himself and a few other cops got shot along with two people in the home being killed. I'm still sad the guy in the house only had a revolver. Think what he could've done to those cops with a rifle.

And lest we forget, the FBI ballistics investigation identified the shooter.  They ignored that because it didn't agree with THEIR labs research because "both labs are well respected" and "no discrepancies in methodology could be identified."

This was the rationale for charging NOBODY in the death of Breonna Taylor.  Since only one bullet was technically fatal, that was the only bullet they were looking for.  They conveniently couldn't find out who shot it.  The FBI could, but whatever, who the fark are the "FBI" anyway?

OK so we've decided that SOME people want cops to kill and hurt black people exclusively.
I think they probably would be happy with the cops hurting other groups too, such as gay people or any other religion or race than they are.

They had a warrant, so as the law is currently written they did have legal right to enter and execute the warrant.  Their method is what's being debated.  If he had no idea who they were because he couldn't hear their announcement that's a huge problem.  And why I'm opposed to no-knock warrants.
