The BS is literally lapping itself in the race to the bottom, and these Dem fools can't see it. wtf?All blacks involved, police chief is black, cops are black, suspect is black. Memphis as is most large cities run by all Dems. Hubman has already blamed right wingers. There is no one the MSM can blame here so Van Jones is blaming the white cops on the force instilling the racism into the black cops. There is no way to win, just let anarchy rule
It actually could have something to do with the guy's past, as he may be known to carry, or he may have made a few of these guys look stupid, whatever. None of it justifies the extreme cop reaction to resistance, regardless. I think we all can agree there, as did the City of Memphis. They are dismissed, charged , and jailed.Comply and he may still be alive but there is zero justification for this man to be beaten this brutally, let alone dead. This is so over the top only morons or people with an agenda will try to defend the cops here. This has nothing to do with the individuals past or lack there of. 5 cops should’ve been able to arrest this guy with a minor scuffle not a total beat down.
This is a detail that if confirmed, makes zero sense to me. I would think a specialized task force unit such as this one would have a defined target area to patrol. What were these guys doing in the general vicinity? If this was out of the center city and out towards the 'burbs, why were they there?What I don’t understand is that these cops knew they were wearing cameras and they’d be held accountable. They knew there was a city-owned camera on a light pole a few yards away. They knew there’d be witnesses in a suburban neighborhood, likely with cell phone videos. And yet, they beat the life out of a supposed traffic-law violator. Not a rapist, murderer, kidnapper, classified document holder nor any other felonious crime; he was just a bad driver.
It doesn’t make any sense at all.
No gangs spilling over in the 'burbs ?This is a detail that if confirmed, makes zero sense to me. I would think a specialized task force unit such as this one would have a defined target area to patrol. What were these guys doing in the general vicinity? If this was out of the center city and out towards the 'burbs, why were they there?
I wasn't taking that to mean a distinct municipality in this instance, but a neighborhood of a different character. I honestly don't know.They're Memphis city cops and not joint jurisdiction county law enforcement, right? If it's on the outskirts of the city or in a different named 'burb, I wouldn't think these guys would be supposed to be there.
They didn’t just rough him up a little, they beat him to death. I normally side with the cops, but this was beyond the pale.Guy resists and ran...."they killed this poor angel"
Comply and he's still alive today.
The cops and the suspect can both be wrong.
But here we are with the left pushing a race message when it was black on black.
so what is this scorpian group about? that these cops were part of......I wasn't taking that to mean a distinct municipality in this instance, but a neighborhood of a different character. I honestly don't know.
That said, some neighboring communities have pursuit and/or mutual aid agreements, too.
All that I know for certain is that Memphis' government seems to have responded properly to this tragedy, and some opportunistic trash humans want to roll in the blood of this man's tragic death, like the dogs that they are.
The cops were excessive...and the guy contributed by resisting and fleeing. Both things can be true.They didn’t just rough him up a little, they beat him to death. I normally side with the cops, but this was beyond the pale.
Yes, but I think you miss the point. They didn’t just give him a nightstick to the gut, they beat him to death. It was like the scene in Casino when they killed Joe Pesci’s character.
Could you imagine if any of the cops were white??This isn't being talked about more because all of the officers are black and doesn't fit the division narrative that democrats and the media want. This is also the outcome of affirmative action in the police force. Listening to all of these black officers speak they sound like gang bangers and their arrest techniques are total trash. You want more black police officers over more qualified candidates? Well, this is what you get.
I gotta think there is alot more to this. The guy lived in the area the cops probably knew him. Wonder what kind of history he has??
Why do the hoodrats burn cars, or drunk students burn couches, when their teams win championships ? All we can be sure of is that stupid people do stupid people things.It is my opinion that most believe, like the officers involved in the George Floyd case, these officers deserve to suffer the maximum penalties under the law.
I do not get destroying cities and assuming those that do not have the same political ideologies or have the same skin color are against INDIVIDUAL JUSTICE, especially when most sane members of society want to see these officers penalized as strongly as possible.
With that being said, if anyone decides to assault others, destroy property or pursue other criminal activity(rioting), these people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
There needs to be sanity returned to the way criminals are treated as far as prosecution to the fullest extent of the law, and getting these people off of the streets to allow law abiding citizens piece of mind knowing they are safe as much as possible from these criminals.
