    Good...

    Bad cops should be held fully accountable, more so for their crimes.

    This guy is a pos and he makes all cops look bad.

    Sounds about right(though I'm not going to pretend to understand the entire context of what took place).

    As for the op, is the implication supposed to be that most incidences of cops shooting (black male) civilians are consistent with this instance?

    Why does the race matter of the cop?

    Nonsense. He murdered someone on camera, then committed fraud to cover up the murder. He'll be out on parole in a decade at most. And he'll probably be in the cop wing of whatever light prison they send him too.

    Just slip the fucker a hotshot, and let him spare the taxpayers.

    I think we're all pretty much in agreement the cop committed a crime. We could argue about the degree of punishment he deserves.

    Other than that, isn't the topic wether unjustified cop-on-black shootings, is a systemic problem or not? The statement "if it weren't for the video...", seemed to imply that that TS might consider it the norm, but idk. More or less just curious on the thread topic.

    because the MURDER trial resulted in a hung jury because one juror stated he would never convict a white man for killing a ni**er

    The cops in the US have a pretty well known reputation for mistreating minorities and frequently not facing justice for incidents that would cause outrage in most developed countries.

    Weren't the LA riots sparked by a group of cops beating the piss out of a suspect and being acquitted?

    Murder should get the death penalty IMO. But I don't know if this was threadworthy. There were probably 10 cops killed today by criminals while in the line of duty serving and protecting.
