It really doesn't seem to matter anymore how many of these stories come out. A daily basis now actually.
More and more of these incidents as absolute proof of a Govt. gone mad and police gone insane with power. Then, paid holidays for killer cops most times.
People keep saying "We must fight back" but they never will is my guess. Because everyone is just scared...Mission accomplished.
I am starting to believe that it will never happen and that the US is finished as a free nation. As long as it doesn't happen on their doorstep, people talk over the water cooler at work, their coffee at their 4 dollar coffee joint and move on within minutes.
If people still believe the police will get theirs, when is that? What is the final trigger? Because if it isn't enough already, what is really enough? What is the last straw that many are talking about? Unarmed citizens, helpless seniors, innocent children, harmless pets...which one is enough and how many?
DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit Police officer who was involved in the shooting death of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones has been reinstated, according to Detroit Police Chief James Craig.
Joseph Weekley has not been on the force since 2010 when he and a special response team stormed into a home on Detroit's east side looking for a murder suspect. At the time, the show "The First 48" was filming. Weekley said he pulled the trigger when Aiyana's grandmother bumped him.
Chief Craig said Weekley is currently on vacation, and will be in a non-field position when he comes back as part of the department's integration program.
Craig said Weekley wants to come back on the force, but isn't sure if he will eventually go back out in the field.
In January, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy dismissed the charges against Weekley and said she would not seek a third trial after two previous mistrials were declared.
