Just a reminder not to leave this in the "Incompetent blood-thirsty cops kill innocent black people" file.

bless you for beating me to it. Didn't the hospital release that she wasn't pregnant either? And it was 3 shots.

The image released by authorities.




National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

A good example of why all cops should wear body cams while on duty. Used properly (i.e, camera remains on the entire time the cop is on duty), body cams protect the officers as much as they do the public.



It is what it is.

Oh, absolutely. And can be used to either convict or exonerate the suspect. Military units have used them to prove they DIDN'T commit war crimes, and once or twice, that an individual did. Keeps everyone honest. Although the military helmet cams have a different primary purpose.

Unfortunately, the original version was all too easy to believe. I'm not one bit embarrassed for falling for it because finding out that one of hundreds of occurrences turned out to be untrue doesn't change my opinion about cops in the least.

The first version was wrong. I will delete that. The one in the OP is incomplete.

From the Root art that Lemon posted:

'Shédanja said the man ran off and officers followed him while the woman exited the car with her hands up. The officer told her to get on the ground, which she refused, explaining that she was pregnant. The officers approached her with guns drawn and after she took a few steps away, they opened fire five times.

“She did not pull out a weapon on them. She did not even have a stick in her hand,” said Shédanja."


Looks like Shédanja has some splainin' to do...

maybe she wanted her 15 minutes of fame, not realizing that she will forever be remembered as being full of @#$%&.

I've known some really nice people who are cops, but that doesn't make me think all of them are nice. But I do try to give people the benefit of the doubt. That said, there definitely are some people who shouldn't be cops, and departments aren't good enough at weeding those people out. Really, no institutions are good enough at getting rid of bad eggs.

teacher's unions, and the USPS spring to mind.
