If You Don’t Believe that Police Need Reforms, Watch This Video

This is a screen grab. You cannot see the video from this graphic. See link on page.

If you’re one of those who don’t believe there needs to be wholesale reforms of the police (as there’s just a few bad apples) you need to watch this video. Warning: it ain’t pretty – and it’s from August 2019 in New Mexico.

The video shows a squad of police officers fully armed approach a homeless man sleeping at a bus stop. They received a call about him. They put on their full combat gear and at least 4 officers approach the man, with rifles leveled at him. They demand that he raise his hands, which he does, and they demand that he lays flat on his stomach. He refuses.

It’s a very disturbing video – prepare yourself.

See this video.

Roger Schafer was shot 15 times for a BB gun.

the cops were there because the guy was pointing a bb replica pistol at cars and passing pedestrians. he didnt comply and reached for the gun. the end. Come up with a better example.

This is a PERFECT example. There were FIVE cops. (Five shadows.)

The first one – on the far left – shot a rubber bullet. This is a “non-lethal” option.

This “non-lethal” option was – not even a full second later – followed by a hail of LETHAL bullets.

How the FUCK does that make sense to YOU!? Why wouldn’t they wait for effect from the rubber bullet to do it’s job!? Why bother with a “non-lethal” option if you’re just going to fucking KILL HIM after that!?

You CAN’T explain your way out of THAT shit, DICK.

Ok,really Wonderland? You need a better example of a situation of law enforcement, all buttoned up in swat gear, vests, back-up, and semi-automatic weaponry, approaching a man with a bb gun?
Shoot him 15 times in “self-defense”? Is that what you call courageous? Is that what you call protecting the citizenry? Its what I call DUMB and unbridled! I don’t want that kind of law enforcement. What has happened to your sense of scale?

Yep, retired botanist, this country sure is EXCEPTIONAL, isn’t it?

The song remains the same.

Did I post this to read yet, RB? I forget because there has been so many lightning strikes and massive t-storm deluges that I’m feeling waterlogged… This is a glimpse of honesty that only comes when you can’t stand yourself anymore.

Yeah, I can see why your name is wonderland, Mr. willy. In what universe does a man or boy deserve slaughter because of a BB gun? Ain’t you ever seen Christmas Story?
AND EXACTLY WHY DOESN’T A COP HAVE THE TRAINING IN ORDINACE to be able to discern a BB gun from a lethal weapon???. As in most other civilized countries cops should be disarmed. Monkey see, monkey do.

I had an email notice that someone named ‘Ike Carumba,’ who obviously was a shill for murder and racism, and a troll of the worst sort, posted a very stupid comment that just absolutely needed a reply but now it doesn’t seem to be here. And I wrote such a lovely reply with both questions to answer and links for him to read/watch and try to explain. Of course this person wouldn’t have been able to without showing that pointy white cone hat he wears…but these police union dickheads are pretty easy to piss off, aren’t they?

Ah well, back to my morning yogurt…

I figured out that with that name, it was bogus. Thanks for your diligence anyhow.

Yeah Frank, I laughed at the Ayieee Carumba name and somehow I very much doubt this person was Hispanic!

Sometimes you just gotta laugh at the stupid!
