This is another fact of living black that is out of mind to those that are not black. This incident serves as a reminder and a warning. A reminder that the badge is not here to protect and serve the community and a warning to the youth that the badge is not their friend. Stay away from them, out of their way. Until a change comes in training, through whatever means, no police officer should be sent on a mental health emergency, they should only be dispatched in pairs with a supervisor aware of CAD info, not allowed to drink energy drinks on duty, establish new guidelines for less enforcement of civil issues, with a remade policy of law enforcement, not feelings enforcement, to prevent confrontations. Require officers to be explanatory of laws related to reason for contact. This man died at the hands of the "elite" squad of cops. Now, that entity is no more, as it appears it was another of those gangs that operated with impunity, unleashing terror on the citizens of the city. Atlanta once had their ' Red Dog Unit" and Dekalb had their "Black Cats." Both disbanded because of continued complaints from the community concerning bad cops, abusing their power. I say redistribute the funds to address the needs of public safety. There is such a need that given attention, funding and other resources, it could have an impact whereas the effect on the shifting of funds would clearly be justified. If this is true and one of the officers had a Motive - does this in the least change your opinion on this situation? https://www.newsweek.com/tyre-nichols-connection-memphis-cop-demetrius-haley-ex-wife-under-investigation-1778300 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
