    That is some fucked up shit in StL, again. Stockley should be on the way to prison right meow. I am so sickened and saddened by events like this. What has become of serve and protect?

    I don't know, there's some fucked up stuff going on there, but looking at what is fact and what is not, that was a hard case to prove. It should have certainly gone to court with the fact that he make the "kill the mofo" statement and WTF does this guy have an AK47 in his car for? But one police officer identified him as having a gun already and there appeared to be no place that the officer could have been hiding the weapon in his clothes when he passed by the video camera, which makes it pretty hard to show up in the car. I'm not sure what all the history on the weapon was and if there are any bullet matches to prior crimes, but this stuff isn't a total mystery these days, they can match with known weapons or known cases where rounds were found. Lots of roads to go down to establish if this was a planted weapon or not, despite there being some inconsistencies. Doesn't make all of the cop's behavior correct, but this seems far from conclusive from an evidence standpoint.

    Lets go down the correct road here. One of the cops turned off the dashcam. That should be a federal crime.

    Back in the day, I knew guys who carried drop guns and carried back up guns and extra ammunition "just in case". Many subscribe to the theory that it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Once again I will revert to my standard argument that there needs to be national level hiring, training and education standards for Cops. It is too easy for thugs like Stockley to find work carrying weapons and making life and death decisions when they should be working in the garden section of the local WallyWorld.

    How come Stockley's but not the decedent's DNA was on the weapon?

    That is the most damning of all the evidence against him, imho.

    From CNN:

    LIke I said, there's some shit that doesn't add up, but if the weapon is truly too big to be hidden on the body with the multiple video cameras, it shoots down that theory, unless the cop crammed it up his ass or something. Some stuff doesn't add up on both sides, but when it doesn't add up for the prosecution, this is the way our justice system works.

    The "justice" system is evolving to be little more than expensive theater.

    "Is evolving"? It has always been bad, most people just weren't paying attention because cognitive dissonance. There are many times when I feel like the US is mentally equivalent to Europe's 15th century.

    Multiple video cameras? I read about a bystander's cell phone video. The dashcam footage from the cop car would have been great... but they turned it off.

    I hope that cop's family gets their asses handed to them in civil court.

    Don't worry Syadasti, you may rest assured that is only a very very few bad apples and the police will police their own ranks when these rare abnormal occurrences happen infrequently.
    It's not systemic at all, no no no no no no.......

    "...Mayor Lyda Krewson asked the director of public safety to investigate how an undercover officer became bloodied during his arrest Sunday when he was mistaken for a suspect..."

    So she worries about this but not about the civilians being brutalized? What does tRump have to say about all of this? Surely he will have some wise words that will have a calming effect on all this craziness...



    Yeah, right.

    Fewer Cops on the street = less tension and fewer hostile confrontations. Who knew?

    I did. In Germany you very rarely see a patrol vehicle and/or walking patrols on the streets. There are no stop and frisk laws, nor are there anti police protests. The LE intelligence system is a lot deeper than many here would tolerate, but as a trade off the Polizei already know who the bad actors are and are often one step ahead of them. Cops are better trained, better educated, funded and just overall better. I am sure that part of it has something to do with the respect for authority that is ingrained into the culture there, but in 7 years there I never felt as if I was in danger from the very people who were paid to protect us.

    I once counted a dozen cop cars on a single short street in Boston, each belonging to a different agency.

    Police did a great job...not stopping the massacre sooner (and the shooter killed himself so...):

    Also:
    A fucking hour goes by before cops enter his room after the shooting stops. Paddock could have been doing anything in that amount of time.
