Isn't that the way it works?

Shoot first and ask questions later?

Especially if the person isn't white?

Isn't they why every police union is violently opposed to a bill changing the standard of being able to murder innocent civilians from "reasonable" to "necessary"?

It has taken time, but Verdict in police shooting death of unarmed Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk Damond..

The American police officer who shot dead Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk Damond after she called 911 to investigate a possible sexual assault has been found guilty on two charges.

Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, 33, has been found guilty of third degree murder (intentionally causing bodily harm but not necessarily death) and second degree manslaughter in relation to Ms Damond’s death. He was cleared of the more serious charge of second degree murder ( intentionally killing another person with malice). The jury of 10 men and two women took less than one day to reach their decision.
We hope that the sentence actually sends a message and not just a slap on the wrist.

Not always doom & gloom regarding police.
Some officers broke with a "hot zone" protocol to stay out of unsafe environments unless armed.
They knew the attackers were carrying knives and wearing what they thought were suicide vests, but could see the public were at risk and casualties needed help, the court heard.

Amazing what one can get away with by just using 2 words.

Can't be all that serious as it took 2 years to act.

Do they have a First Amendment there? (or can you print only if you have the Queen's tax stamp?)
Two years might just be dotting the "i's" and crossing the "t's".

It has certainly caused a stir (by time and timing) here as these raids have happened while both the PM and Min. for Defence were (and still are) out of the country.

They were no longer interested in actually defending the country. They were simply interested in defending themselves.
These are principles that unfortunately we are seeing eroded around the western world.
One law for us, another for them
Don't they rely on informants in the prevention of crime? Yet go ballistic when informants expose their wrongdoings.

Parents say police pulled guns on them after 4-year-old daughter took a doll from a store in Phoenix

(CNN)A Phoenix couple is seeking $10 million from the city after a video showed police officers drawing a gun on them after their 4-year-old daughter allegedly stole a doll from a Family Dollar store.
Dravon Ames and fiancee Iesha Harper told CNN they didn't notice when their daughter walked out with a Barbie from the store last month. They've filed a notice of claim against the city for $10 million, which serves as a precursor to a lawsuit.
Soon after they left the store, Ames said the couple pulled into an apartment complex to drop their daughter off at a babysitter. Then an officer began banging against their window, yelling and threatening to kill them.
"Our hands are up, we're just trying not to get shot, trying to stay calm," Ames said. "He had a gun drawn."
Ames said there were no sirens or lights to indicate that they were being pulled over beforehand and the officer who was pointing a gun at them did not immediately identify himself as an officer.
The incident took place on May 29, the family said. Police said they were made aware of video on June 11.
In the 12-minute blurred-out video posted on the department's Facebook page, one officer can be seen handcuffing Ames, first on the ground and then against a police car. The officer kicks Ames and can be heard yelling multiple times, "When I tell you to do something, you f****** do it."


Twitter link to cellphone video of the encounter which is much better quality than the CNN "official" video. (NSFW language and may be stress-inducing.)
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Think they need to face modern reality.
It is not clear who recorded the video or what transpired beforehand. There is no body cam footage of the incident, Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Tommy Thompson told CNN.
Thompson also told the affiliate there was more to it than the claim of the stolen doll, but would not expound on it. The affiliate reported that police said there were other stolen items in the vehicle besides the doll.
Yet we get this:
The couple says they were both released shortly after the arrest and were not charged.
Well, it is America, so what more can one expect.
In a video posted to the department's Facebook page Friday, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said she was "disturbed by the language and the actions of our officer."
I think she'll find out that not just herself is disturbed.
Incident May 27th, video provided June 11th...
...hmm...
