Are you assuming that it was racially motivated?

Well, I wasn’t trying to be an apologist. We have many police who kill innocent people. But I had a valid question about why most conservative media don’t question police officers in these shootings, yet they questioned this woman. 

 

I agree no unlawful or excessive use-of-force killing is justified.  All police need to be held to a higher standard than the regular public, because they are uniquely situated to legally deny us our civil rights....including taking a life.

 

They must be trained well to minimize tragic accidents. And when they do occur, they must be held accountable.

I asked a question. Of course there is no evidence. I’m not attempting to divert from the topic. This is the topic. It’s just not what you want to discuss. Officer-involved shootings of unarmed black men have been a constant in the news at least since Michael Brown was killed in 2014. 

 

However, it seems like this one columnist writes about police shootings often. So that answers my question.

If you would have read my initial reply to Alferd, before he went into his legalese rant, you would notice that I agreed with him that she wasn't very intelligent by shooting the guy.  She was standing in the only way out (check the floor plans for those apartments) and all she had to do was close the door, use her cell phone and call for assistance.

 

She didn't even know that he was Black because it was dark with the lights out.  Just an excuse to continue the football kneeling discussion?   Apparently liberals will not miss a chance to further their cause....  what does the football players' protest have to do with this?

 

Additionally her past shooting a victim indicates she had a problem with judgement.

Of course you don't.

Don't be silly - posts like that are very revealing...


Do you enjoy posting in legalese.  This isn't about the gender of police officers, but about this particular officer.  If it was about male police officers also, then why didn't you state that in your first post? 


Bogus - no answer necessary.

How typical - to the left everything is racism, sexism, homophobic, Nazi, etc. etc. etc.

 

The police officer (a person), got scared and did something stupid. Can it not be approached that way?
