Perhaps I jumped the gun a bit there.
I rarely side with the Police in cases like these, however this one is different in my opinion. This replica most likely did not have an orange tip on
it, they gave this teen multiple orders to drop the gun and he did not comply.
Hopefully someone caught this on video so we can have more answers.
Muse you inderectly bring up an interesting point,
I hope someone did have it on camera, I don't see why we can spend millions on turning cops into an Army equipped unit.
BUt add a little device for accountability, say badge cam or something...
As long as their are abuses of power by the police, and a blue line that protects them, well I just can't give any cop the benefit of the doubt.
Not anymore, not after my friends brother was shot in the neck while on the floor handcuffed.
AS long as cops will protect one bad one for the sake of all of them... No, they get no leeway.
heres the thread.
Tragedy hits home
My stance on Cops has changed since being on ATS, and not because of ats, because I saw corruption first hand. Two days before this thread, maybe even
the day before, I was arguing and defending the police in anaheim.
Protecting cops as just protectors... Next day they shot my friends brother in cold blood, and spun a story, strong armed witnesses, BRIBED people for
all their cell phones, and Harassed the family of the victim.
And to be completely honest, it was the deciding moment to get the HELL out of Cali, TO many incidents happen there like this.
Oh wait this one was in Cali as well? imagine that.
