Unfortunately, these "cops" will never stand before a firing squad like this man did, and indeed, they should.
This was a murder, plain and simple, perpetrated by a sanctioned, organized gang.
Oh yeah, and I don't want to hear any "Anti-Police" BS...my father was a police officer. And when his peers beat up a man who was already detained
in handcuffs, he turned them in. That's right, my father did the right thing, and I'm proud of him for that. Did even one of these cops "do the
right thing" ? Hardly.
Tasers, mace, the dog, a single shot to the leg, talking the man down ( instead of shouting orders)...these were all options.
IMO, these "officers" are cowards to the Nth Degree. ( I'd like to state it another way, but I'm keeping it family-friendly here ).
I used to be a psychiatric technician in 2 different state institutions, and we had no weapons at all except our brains and team work. My last years
of work were on a maximum security unit. Six of us routinely disarmed and subdued threatening people WITH OUR BARE HANDS.
How? Training! Intelligence! Patience! TEAMWORK!
And then here comes the Chief of Police to defend these idiots. How would he feel if this video was of HIS family member being gunned down? I grew up
around Police Officers, and I do have a great deal of respect for the good ones. I suppose that's why I vehemently DISrespect the bad ones. They're
just bullies with badges and lethal weapons. The guy probably had a butter knife for God's sake. These morons acted like they were up against Rambo
or some such nonsense.
This is distgusting. And these sad excuses for humans will walk away to spend their lives with their families. They'll probably even keep their jobs.
They should feel a deep sense of shame and remorse, and at the very least resign. They have betrayed the public's trust, and abused their power and
authority. They deserve no less than a firing squad themselves...but I would settle for all of them being thrown into prison right into General
Population with all of the gangbangers from Detroit. Perhaps they would learn an important lesson about "teamwork" in that environment.
