If we are serious about police reform then in my opinion we must talk about the “mouse” in the room!
Why do we know everything about the victim and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the person who took a human life? Taking a human life is taken “very” seriously in the so-called justice system except when it involves a cop killing! If I kill someone I am arrested and charged immediately! Not so much for cops!
We are way beyond this thing that the benefit of the doubt has to be given to the cop!
As a Viet Nam Vet I really don’t want to hear this BS about “their job is so dangerous”! I volunteered for the Military! “NOT VIETNAM”! BUT it came with territory! There is not one cop in America that was drafted! They knew it was dangerous when they filled out the application! SO THAT’S A GIVEN! IF IT’S TOO MUCH GET ANOTHER DAMN JOB!(Please read my article http://www.mrs-t.com/why-i-never-became-a-navy-seal/)
LOOK! IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT POLICE REFORM THEN LETS GET SERIOUS! TEST A COP WHO TAKES A LIFE AT THE SCENE! MAKE THEM MAKE A REPORT AT THE SCENE UNDER OATH!
WHEN COPS ARE NOT TESTED AND GIVE REPORTS DAYS LATER!………WE AIN’T SERIOUS!
