    Well, shortly after it happened there was a large, silent march of people carrying signs through her neighborhood. And protests drawn with chalk on the sidewalk. The BLM-crowd sometimes had the right idea, you have to make some noise and takes some risks and be disruptive to get any attention, if you're going to protest. Though some of what they do is totally counter-productive (like blocking interstates and such). And unfortunately they always pick the wrong cases to protest, and want to make everything "black versus white" when really it's all about "Blue vs. you."

    It looks like another state-sanctioned murderer will walk : http://www.startribune.com/freeman-to-activists-no-evidence-to-prosecute-officer-in-justine-damond-shooting/464211313/

    No body cams, dash cams, etc in the 1960s. Just imagine how many times the cops must have claimed they were "shot at" , when they weren't. Back then they would have just planted a drop gun on Shaver and then they would have said that he reached for it. There was nothing more noble about the "old school" cops -- actually a lot of today's officers are probably downright "nice" compared to those guys. Now it's more transparent, and juries can literally see a cop commit murder or manslaughter -- and yet they will give their seal of approval, with very rare exceptions. This was a perfectly legal killing, based upon the precedents set by past juries. The precedent has been set that if you fail to obey just one "command" or make one "wrong move" -- then it's legal for a police officer to kill you, if he or she so chooses, based upon their feelings at the moment.

    This is right before 5 rounds were fired into him, you see his open and EMPTY hand coming back down after having been behind his back for an instant. I read elsewhere that the shooter felt that he was crawling towards him to gain a "tactical advantage" "follow orders and you won't get shot" , or so they say I think it was AF a long time ago who said the best thing to do in a situation like this is to just lay down in the prone with arms spread out wide, while hoping for the best.

    I don't know if anyone else pointed it out, but apparently it was not the shooter giving the impossible commands, it was another officer, a Sgt. Charles Langley. So there are two who should be in prison for this. https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/7iln2c/a_very_important_distinction_the_cop_who_murdered/

    Yes, more and more are being charged, but virtually all are getting off on acquittals or hung juries. About the only case I can think of where there was some justice was with Michael Slaeger -- and if he hadn't taken a plea deal with the Feds he probably would have gotten off completely also. This has to be emboldening the really bad cops even more, knowing they can literally get away with just about anything. Example : paralyze an elderly man by slamming him down to the ground? The cop goes through two mistrials, a third trial gets dropped before it starts -- then he gets re-hired, with full back pay. On and on. However, yes, years ago before body cams he wouldn't have even been charged. All we would know is "he reached for something" and that would have been it.

    Surprisingly (to me) this has been covered on the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News tonight, with them showing the worst parts of the body cam video, for millions to see. All the copsuckers I've seen online are circling the wagons and going on and on about how he "reached for his waist band, so the cop just had to shoot" -- but I doubt the people who saw the body cam footage in the news stories even noticed that part, since the part before is so horrifying. Every time this happens it's just more fuel for a potential fire at some point (it remains to be see if it will ever be lit off ) -- tick tock ...

    Meaning he doesn't agree with the verdict? He's usually a copsucker -- to the extreme.

    I think this is Sheriff Joe's neck of the woods, so no surprise they could easily select the jury they wanted. At least if he was black there might be a slight chance of some justice involving federal civil rights charges. "Crawl towards me, but keep your hands up, drop them and I'll f*cking kill you! Cross your left leg over your right -- hands up, if you fall it better be on your face, or I'll f*cking kill you!" An impossible game of "Simon Says"

    He should have just gone for a re-trial in the state case and almost certainly would have gotten the customary "not guilty" verdict or hung jury (again). With another hung jury the prosecution would have probably pretended to be disappointed, and then opted not to re-try. Instead he thought he was taking the "easy" way out pleading in the federal case and probably got more time than he would have from the state. About as close to "justice" as you can hope to get with a killer cop (look what happened in the Daniel Shaver murder -- cop found not guilty).

    And , it's the usual outcome : not guilty . If I remember right this cop had a dust cover on his AR-15 that had the words "You're F*cked" engraved on it, and neither that info or the body cam was allowed to be seen by the jury. A real "hands up, don't shoot" type situation, and the killer still goes unpunished. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/mesa-breaking/2017/12/07/philip-brailsford-verdict-daniel-shaver-killing/927052001/

    I'm getting to be about the same. Probably the worst thing that will happen here is some angry comments on the cop shop's Facebook page -- and sometimes even that won't happen. When it does 95% of the angry comments are from other states or countries, while the locals could care less.

    Owner should have refused the so-called "order." Well, he did at first, and got the customary smackdown and threats of jail time -- but still, I think most people would be incapable of even carrying out such an "order." http://thefreethoughtproject.com/cop-kills-familys-dog-forces-dad-to-cut-its-head-off-or-be-arrested/
