For decades NO ONE has addressed the epidemic of police abuse, Killer cops and abused impunity. Since when does getting a badge mean you're BETTER than everyone else, have the right to get away with murder and crime? Barely 6 months of training means any idiot, bully, control freak, loser or mentally unstable psychopath can get deadly force and authority, worse released onto our communities.
As a factual example look at the murder (yes murder) of
Kelly Thomas (April 5, 1974 – July 10, 2011) was a homeless man diagnosed with schizophrenia who lived on the streets of Fullerton, California. He was beaten to death by six members of the Fullerton Police Department, on July 5, 2011. Thomas was taken to St. Jude Medical Center before being transferred to the UC Irvine Medical Center, where he was comatose on arrival and not expected to recover. He never regained consciousness, and died on July 10, 2011.
Medical records show that bones in his face were broken and he choked on his own blood. The coroner concluded that compression of the thorax made it impossible for Thomas to breathe normally and deprived his brain of oxygen. His parents removed him from life support five days later, and he died from his injuries on July 10, 2011.Officer Manuel Ramos was charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter; Corporal Jay Cicinelli and Officer Joseph Wolfe were each charged with one count of felony involuntary manslaughter and one count of excessive force.
All three pleaded not guilty.
A judge declined to dismiss the charges against the officers in January 2013, finding that "a reasonable person could infer that the use of force was excessive and unreasonable." An appeals court judge also denied a request to overturn the lower court's decision. On January 13, 2014, Ramos and Cicinelli were found not guilty of all charges, while the trial for Wolfe was pending. Following the verdict for the two officers, the district attorney's office announced it would not pursue the case against Wolfe. On January 17, 2014, charges against Wolfe were dropped.
We have laws and codes but we MUST revoke all undeserved impunity and the ridiculous "Police Officers Bill of Rights" that supersedes our rights .
Police Unions are in bed with government and courts, Our justice system as you already my know is based on MONEY not Justice, infected with a more dangerous virus, GREED and PROFIT over lives and people. Police along with a broken justice system mean YOUR LIFE is worth less than anyone who can attend 6 months of training with less than average intelligence. www.cnn.com/2016/09/28/us/jobs-training-police-trnd/index.html
Smart cops? BS?
Thousands of innocent people are put in prison and lives destroyed via ignorance and stupidity. Courts often refuse to overturn guilty verdicts even if victims are proven innocent.
