Yeah, and it's more specific:

Former South Carolina police officer Michael Slager was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for the 2015 deadly shooting of unarmed black man Walter Scott.

Not sure what's going on there.

I'm glad jury nullification doesn't give cops a complete carte blanche to murder people. Though, who knows what would have happened if Slager refused to plead guilty.

Guy complies with all police orders, is literally crying. Still gets shot and killed.

Should note that this was last year, and the case is ongoing.

As a response to the framing of the article, a relevant thread:

Video has now been released. And Jesus, it's...disturbing doesn't begin to describe it. That officer needs to be fired and the whole department needs retraining on deescalation.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
ETA: apparently video was released because the waste of skin got acquitted today.

What is wrong with Maricopa County?

And in slightly lighter news: cop shoots dog, makes owner cut off its head to check for rabies (after dog bit someone).

Jesus fucking christ. What is wrong with these people? And fuck that union cop who was whining about the emotional trial.

Oh my god are you fucking kidding me with this shit?

Aside from the absolute and utter horror of having someone do this to their own dog that you just fucking shot, this is insanity. You do not have some random fucking person cut off the dog's head. If the dog was potentially rabid, you need to take precautions before cutting the goddamn head off because coming into contact with nervous tissue puts you at risk for GETTING FUCKING RABIES which is one of the very many reasons why you have professionals handle this sort of thing when it needs to be done.

That's assuming it was the right decision to actually have the animal tested. That depends on factors that cops are too fucking dumb to even begin to understand.

The recorder was found.  The 9-year-old was moved to a new classroom and about a month later Sims was charged by police.

Prosecutors in Virginia have dropped criminal charges against a mother who sent her 9-year-old daughter to school with an audio recorder in her backpack to see if the child was being bullied.

Shattuck also said they have yet to find out what's in the recorder and suspect it may have captured something important.

Yeah, they need to get that tape back and if it's empty, have it analyzed for tampering and if there's been none, file suit for unlawful arrest. If there has been tampering, then then sue for tampering with evidence.

And if there is shit on the tape, full prosecution, including any officials involved including the apparent attempt at a cover up.

What I thought was really weird was the interviewing of the daughter without the knowledge of the mother much less her consent. I thought it was pretty much standard law that you can not interview minors without the consent of their parents/guardians or at least a court appointed monitor. A legacy of the great child abuse fake epidemic of the 80s.
Are we there yet?
