I thought the same thing. Also, I wonder if nepotism had a part in his getting hired. It's not about what you know, but who you know.

now theres absolutely no ambiguity in the culpability of the officer. yet in other cases when certain criteria is different the police actions are defended or it was suicide by cop....interesting.
what is the difference here in other scenarios where the cop is defended. like that 8 year old who was shot at point blank range while playing by himself with a bb gun. or the guy that was shot in the head while seated in his car seat.

Walter Scott? That murder was well covered; it may have gotten lost in the midst after the Charleston 9, but no doubt, the murder of Walter Scott received tons of attention. If you're intimating about another situation, please elaborate. Otherwise, I missed your sarcasm, or you're terribly misinformed.

I've said it before and I will keep saying it.... STOP RECRUITING POLICE OFFICERS FROM PRIOR MILITARY!! Especially combat hardened Veterans. Our boys were stretched to the max.. Mentally, physically, and from their grand experiences, they go by a completely separate set of INGRAINED rules by which they interact with civilians. We need to pay them a nice check every month (YES.. WE CAN AFFORD IT!) and tell them the war is over... Especially on our streets. Hire from within the community so we can again have peace officers, not law ENFORCERS. a reply to: theantediluvian

Is there not a police acedemy you got to pass before becoming a police officer? Do the nutters not get filtered out during their stay?

Idk but he totally gives me the creeps. I get these weird vibes off people sometimes...It is like I can see their entire life up to that point. Like a weird gut feeling. It isn't from creepers, either. Get it with totally normal folks sometimes too, lol.

When it happens I always wonder how far I am off...Or if I am on the money.

If what they say about turning away high IQ candidates is true, I'd assume the opposite - the nutters are all that get through the filters.

This right here I highly suspect. I have a friend who is a helicopter mechanic, smart girl passing all her college courses with flying colors including advanced math. She has applied to 3 different police departments (which I give her flack about) and for some reason cannot pass the entrance exams. I believe that the line of questioning is set up to determine a person's moral compass, obedience and personality type more than intelligence. I'm just speculating though as I've never actually seen whats in the test. She is a sweet girl with common sense and a true sense of right and wrong...therein lies the problem that is not the candidate these people want, they want obedient, dumb and willing to hurt people for the company. No other way to explain it because it is certainly not an academic problem. She was really frustrated and upset by this and I told her she didn't want to be a cop anyway that she is too good a person for that.

I agree that this is part of the problem.

a reply to: charolais Right. Just a part of the problem but I seriously think we should start there. I'm aware of Philip's history, and he was a wannabe to shorten the story. Also, there seems to be a bit of nepotism involved with his hiring which may have contributed to his ineptness.

It is funny isn't it..

Terrorist?

Remove the badge, safety glasses and give him a bobhat.. could just be another terrorist.



Brailsford had etched on his rifle: “You’re F---ed.”


Sick /SNIP/. No Law enforcement officer should joke about death.

Murdering an unarmed man.

Fully complying with orders. Makes a slight move and gets executed.

This is what I am talking about when I say "monopoly of force".

Oh my god I didn't hear about this but recognize the officer and am in mesa visiting a family member the last few months and by golly if it doesn't get even more coincidental..for fear of violating some TOS I DONT know about though I guess I WON'T say what hotel ive oddly been staying at too. I think I may go ask some people what the heck happened but dont want to come across as an insensitive jerk but wow...

Not to mention for 24 years ive known, stayed with family/have family just houses down from...id better stay somewhat vague and say the tippity top dog of the MPD...i remember confronting him a decade ago about some sex stuff going on when 200 officers knew of or were parking and swinging with other officers for hrs on end when they were on paid duty time...he was evasive and angry more than apologetic and explainitive...yea I know that word doesn't exist and for a philologist that's a shameful thing but I can't think well after just waking from a nap

Good thing that he was fired from the PD and faces now criminal charges .. hopefully this P.O.S. will burn for this .. I don't get why police officers are still not held to the same standards as citizens. There is the problem right there.

Also I never heard that you can personalize a department issued weapon?????????

AND wear all over body tattoos while on duty ...

I believe that's where this problem stems from. Police are trained to shoot first, ask questions later. If an officer feels like their life is in danger, they are supposed to shoot. They are trained to assume a person has a gun if they are reaching for something, that is why we see so many innocent people murdered while reaching for their wallets. They brainwash these recruits with endless videos of officers being shot and killed. They are taught from the first day, that they can be murdered at any time and any place. The academies focus of instilling fear in the officers. They come out of the academy now, scared that the next traffic stop could be their last. This has made the new generation of officers extremely jumpy and trigger happy. You take that jumpiness and mix in some PTSD from Iraq or Afghanistan and you get what we are seeing in this video.

Sad situation for all involved. At least the victim's family will probably make out well from law suits.

When you shoot a person that is on their hands and knees begging you not to do it... and you shoot them 5 times with a rifle... and you have the words 'You're F--ked' etched on the rifle...

How is it that you only get charged with 2ND DEGREE MURDER?????

If I did that sort of thing, I expect there would be 1st degree murder charges.


Not even that. They're going to reduce it to negligent homicide or some crap, because cop/cop union.

Negligent homicide is the sort of thing a drunk driver gets. It's a vehicular homicide charge being used here. It implies that there was no intent to kill. And it carries really light penalties. For negligent homicide in Arizona, it tops out at less than 4 years, but it's typical to waive all prison time and sentence to probation.

You can't do that with murder 2, or a manslaughter charge in Arizona. So that's why they're pleading this down to NH. So he won't do a day of time.

The only way negligent homicide should fly is is there was an accidental discharge of his weapon.

Shows us all that cops are above the law.

Here the intolerant lefties go again...judging people by their appearances.

I will just judge this murderer by his murderous actions, if it is all the same to you.

I'm probably a lefty, I'm also covered in tattoos.
I believe that police should not have tattoos on show.
he lack of any fa
That said, it isn't just his tattoos is it, it's his sleight frame, the tattoos,
he doesn't look like someone who is going to keep the masses safe, in fact it's now proven so.
