They even try to cover their own asses when they are clearly in the wrong. They even go so far as to plant evidence and then start the finger pointing game.
There have been too many cases like this in recent memory. Matter of fact, things got so bad in my city a couple years ago that we now have a civilian review board called PERA or Providence External Review Authority.
Now we hear that Derek J. Hale, a Marine who served two tours in Iraq was gunned down by police in Delaware.
The thing the disgusts me most is that the damned cops don’t understand the effects of a TASER. The subject having the TASER fired at them is NOT going to be able to respond to commands since their nervous system is essentially on overload. But the police in the case not only tasered him three times, they then triple tapped the guy at point blank range, killing him.
But the most galling part of it all is that the police in both DE and VA colluded to cover this up.
Remember, you cannot trust the police. They are not there to protect or serve, most are in it to have fun as bullies.
Don’t get me wrong, there are good cops out there. But the vast majority are just misanthropes with a badge and a gun. In past posts you’ve seen me tell you what I’d do to police if they ever did something like this to Keyron. And he’d do the same for me.
A good friend of mine is anti-gun. I used to be that way too until I made the realizations above. So I forwarded the article linked above to her asking if she still thought gun bans were a good idea. No response as of yet but I bet she’ll still be anti-gun.
