    Bastard cop walks free after vowing to kill suspect during a high speed chase, carrying an unauthorised AK-47 on duty, shooting the unarmed suspect six times (the final shot from six inches away,) then planting a gun on the dead victim.

    But it was all in the heat of the moment and poor cop was scared of the bad, bad Black man, so it's all fine. And the judge said it was legit to assume the victim was armed because "urban" heroin dealers always are.

    (For those not familiar, "urban" as a descriptor is a more socially acceptable but clearly understood synonym for "African American" when used in this context. Also known as "dogwhistle.")

    So now, folk are protesting the verdict and the bastard cops are trampling and cuffing little old ladies. I think things will be shitty in STL for awhile. (Sorry, could only find embeddable video via tweet link.)

    This shit will only get worse while cops know they will almost always get off scot free.

    Absolutely. The shittiest of the shit though seem to be in St Louis. It's the closest "big city" to where I grew up and I was always a Cardinals fan. Cops always been corrupt, but now they're just nakedly racist shit stains.

    Did Shaun King's series about the NYC get posted on this thread? Let me look it up if not.

    eta: yes it did - More police brutality than you can shake a stick at.. And one of the opening facts shows that there's no intention of changing: 3 days after Trump's inauguration, the NYPD payed $75 million out to settle 900,000 cases. Nobody ever gets charged; they have the money. Even if you're one of the few good apples, fighting against it will get you ostracised, sacked, even sent to a mental hospital.

    With no consequences for their actions, they effectively are playing a video game. Most people would count dead people and bereaved communities as 'consequences' of course, but not these clowns.

    Interesting how robust the response was when the victim was a white, female nurse . . . Just saying.

    Fuck this shit. :mad:

    Some on twitter are trying to argue the gear is to protect them from the sound and debris of power tools used to cut the chains, but they seem to be just using hand tools, so.
