LAPD is out of control, what a bunch of pussies
Remember the two women in the dark blue pickup that was shot up by cops becuase they thought it was the BLACK vehicle driven by that cop killer? It’s by the grace of God that neither of them were killed.
Cops- you don’t have to love ‘em.
Absolutely I do, LAPD is a rabid hyena
and the good news is, their union will protect them at all costs .
Come out with your hands on your head, whether you be victim, witness or bystander.
We’re here to make sure no one gets hurt.
Countdown to accusations of LAPD 'homophobia...'
Then again, perhaps no one in the Department want to admit the THREE officers mistook the victim for someone’s dog.
All the officers in both of these cases need to be in prison for 20 to life. Every dime they have and a hefty chunk of their department's yearly budget should go to the victim's families. Only way this excrement will stop - start pulling badges and putting them behind bars, start hitting the departments in the pocketbook. When they have to cut officers, training, and gear purchases (not a bad thing) 'cause their liability insurance rates went through the roof, maybe they'll start making some changes. Maybe even get back to "protect and serve" instead of "menace and subjugate."
Remember, they shot up two separate trucks driven by innocent civilians while looking for that ex cop. Didn’t try to stop them, just opened fire at cars driving down the street.
After the first incident, you would think orders would have went out to be more careful and that officers would have wanted to avoid making this mistake again.
This kind of stuff would not have happened with local police back in the 90’s.
This is mostly a result of the collective loss of cool that America had after 9- 11. The terrorists got lucky that day. We freaked out and massively over reacted. We started seeing creepy, un-American gov’t/police worship. All these fat middle aged losers all over American wearing “NYPD” hats and stuff like that. TV shows glorifying police torture and violations of constitutional rights. Too many conservatives embraced that mindset, getting off on vicarious tough guy posturing, and this is where has lead.
You're right. God and His angels were the only ones protecting and serving that day. The cops seemed to be hired guns for the other team.

And those cops got off, right??

When we lived in Seattle, my wife worked for Alaska Airlines. Being empty nesters, we had a lot of freedom. We would take day trips sometimes by taking an early flight to Burbank on Saturday morning, rent a convertible, tour around the area, maybe hit Disneyland or City Walk and Sunset Blvd, and then fly home that evening.
After a while, LA just looked like a “cleaner” Tijuana. Too much concrete, asphalt, graffiti...and Spanish. Add the politics of the state and we decided it was time to boycott the state about Six years ago. We will never go back there. It has nothing for us and lots that we hate.
As I recall, in the second case, the vehicle was stopped, inspected and cleared. The vehicle and occupants were shot up after they’d been waved through.
That’s even worse.
Let’s all laugh at the footage!
... And Tosh will be the first one to publicly joke about it. Just wait.
I think you’re talking about “Albert,” the 60-year old, drunk, no-longer-armed man from the recent report on the Albuquerque PD. Forty-seven officers responded. He wasn’t killed. He received a cash award from the city.
They bean-bagged him five times, tased him five times, flash-banged him, shot him with a load of four wooden rods (two of which penetrated the skin), and sent a dog on him. “Albert” had dropped the knife before walking away from the officer with the bean-bag shotgun.

What’s the problem? It’s all right there in the training manual.
Why do you want to punish the taxpayer by keeping these murderers alive? Isn't murder a capital crime?
Put them to death and be done with it.
I understand that policemen and policewomen are under constant threat nowadays -- but it seems to me there are way too many times when it's more convenient to just shoot. Other examples: the old man picking up his walking cane, the teen who answered the door with something in his hand.
I was in the wrong when I circled
back around toward some women who had
honked at me in anger. I got out
of my car and followed them on foot.
They called the police. I ended up
in handcuffs for not saying more than
I cared to. I didn’t need to say
anything, especially because
I did nothing.
The women could have driven away.
They thought the police would teach
me a lesson, and they were right.
The police were looking for anything
to make me angry and react so they
could bring me in for not talking to
For example, I began to get up to
help them put the cuffs on me. This
almost set them off. They accused
me of doing things to my wife.
In the end, they had to let me go,
but they really, Really, REALLY
want me to react and to book me
Keep calm and say nothing!
Just damn. RIP.
It appears that wild shooting and stray rounds by Boston police may have hit their fellow officer.
“Feds not alleging Boston Marathon suspect shot officer, but say he’s still responsible
n a court filing Friday, prosecutors said the government doesn’t intend to offer evidence that Tsarnaev shot Donohue.
Instead the government alleges Tsarnaev is responsible for Donohue’s injuries because Donohue was shot while he and other officers were attempting to prevent Tsarnaev’s escape.”
The incident involved 47 responding officers, and like your case, beanbags, multiple events of tasing, K-9 units, and flash-bang grenades. This event also involved shooting the victim with wooden rods.
I hope you can see how I thought the cases were the same from your description.
Yeah, I can see the confusion. Startling similarities. Suggests a pattern. That may not be all bad - the officers are obviously following a protocol to the letter ah, “with enthusiasm” shall we say. Seems the protocol and training is what needs to be adjusted.
