Thats called The Ferguson Effect, its real, and it absolutely has already caused many more violent crime incidents, largely in black communities. All this activism has a very real human cost.
Thats a fu****g joke. I hoe the whole dept walks out
Or better yet she should resign.
“A third shot hit a car with three people inside.”
The media keeps on rewriting the “facts.”
Stay alive..with a black mayor and DA,the white cops have no chance...2 weeks ago a taser was a dangerous weapon..In the hands of a black thug,it’s harmless and the cop had no right to kill him....
the charges are so over the top, dont be surprised if this gets tossed out on a motion to dismiss...
This Will be worth be watching. Big difference between want and gonna get..
Thats what Im hoping the DA is doing here, which would be an unusual move, but who knows. The mayor made a mess of this.
and the DA made it worse
The backlash to the maurading left is on.
Same in Baltimore. Just drive around every once and while and pretend to look for problems, oops, didn’t notice that drug deal go down, car get stolen, etc. My bad.
Should have been treated like any OIS, where they get taken off patrol with pay while the case gets investigated. Unlike MPLS it was clear their actions were justified in some manner, maybe not perfect, but enough to warrant a full investigation first and not immediate firing and charges.
Once that is done, they you take any necessary actions based on the full report.

I hope they don’t cave. They definitely have the mayor shook.
I agree with you. I've read a lot of credible legal analysis that says he was within the (democrat created) rule book, especially if Floyd had resisted and was further showing signs of excited delirium - for which the neck restraint is allowed by Minneapolis. Further, how dumb are you to commit murder when you know you're on camera. Maybe he's that dumb.
There's not even evidence yet that he killed him. To get to 'murder' you need evidence that his knee had enough weight to cause or contribute significantly to the death, and further that he intended it. At best I think you might get a negligent/contributory/manslaughter-ish type of thing and perhaps a justified opinion that Chauvin is a dick.
But I can imagine a scenario where they felt the excited delirium meant they needed to restrain, that the knee was not doing health-harm (no bruises), it's by the book in that jurisdiction, and the ambulance had been called. So Chauvin will say 'I was using an approved technique to protect him and us.'
It's just too hard for me, at least from what I've seen and read so far, to believe Chauvin intended to kill a guy WHILE BEING VIDEOED. it doesn't add up. He looked like a guy (maybe a dick) intent on his job, however uncaring he may have been or seemed. I'm not arguing he's a nice guy, I'm not even arguing he's innocent ... I'm arguing ... there are enough legal questions around this, and enough facts out, to not yet call this murder legally, and maybe not even in spirit.
It doesn't surprise me to see anyone on this site find the video pretty damn disturbing ... but it does surprise me to read people talking about it like it's a done deal murder. Wouldn't want those people on my jury if it ever comes to it. I want people who wait to see the evidence and the full story as opposed to a not totally complete video and what is 98% fake media analysis plus a mob plus huge financial and political interests as usual using black people to further their not-really-interested-in-the-black-community agenda.
Lame! Not murder YET. And if I had 1000$ and God told be I had to put odds on a conviction of manslaughter or whatever they're calling negligent killing in that county ... I'd have a tough time betting they get it out of a jury that adds it all up. I'd say ... maybe 60/40 they get that ... but only because the jury will be swayed by the gravity of it.
I think he's nifonging the police officers to raise his own profile to win the runoff.
If a taser gets you in the eye, you’re in trouble, possibly dead. The same for the throat and side of the head/temple.
The mayor is a plain out fool. She started out okay but caved into the black anti-police program like a wet cardboard box in a rainstorm.
Also, she wants to be BiteMe Joe’s VP choice.
I think she shot down her chances with her own friendly fire. TS and I don’t mean Eliot.
Yep, the investigation is what the social media decides.
How about the community (including the politicians) honor their commitment to the ones who risk their lives to keep the community safe?!?!?!?!?
