  • You could wait to see if they retry him before forming an opinion. I will.
  • Lets hope a civil suit drains every last penny Jonathan Aledda  has and then a massive verdict that results in his suicide.  Nothing Aledda  did   would be done by objectively  reasonable officer.
  • He got tried instead of getting a promotion.

    Improvement-ish for those of us who live near where Michael Brown's body dropped...

    I almost don't see why they would. A cop can do whatever he wants just as long as he was "scared." I watched that tape there is no justification for that's hooting other then black man scary. Hell if he is actually acquitted they will most likely have to give him his job back with back pay. Oh and he was one of the better trained elite "swat" team members too.

    /for the record they should put him on trail again

    Every other profession in the US if you screw up and kill someone as a lack of skill or core competencies you go to prison, even MDs showing that lack competency would be jailed.

    Yes, but the people in those other professions are not in the business of putting and/or keeping the coloreds and the poors in their place.

    /that one cop who went out of his way to NOT summarily execute an unarmed black man was fired for his lack of skill and core competencies

    If a group wants to call themselves professionals they need to have universal standards, the Courts have already said the police do not have a duty to protect others, so they really need something to say they stand for.
  • Perhaps we need body cams on jurors.

    They're earners, like in the mafia.
  • Jury foreperson shook Aledda's hand afterward. "I'm sorry we were unable to clear you," he told the officer. It was a 5-1 vote to acquit of everything. One holdout didn't believe Aledda's testimony.

    This doesn't sound like an impartial jury to me.

    It's not a full jury either

    12 people, not six
  • The good cops getting tired of protecting the bad cops is the only thing that will change the system.

    Since that's never happened anywhere ever, I can only assume that the majority of cops are not good cops

    Yeah, that sixth juror is gonna get suicided by police.
  • "Recording someone makes them behave normally" said no television producer ever. The camera is not designed to modify behavior, but to document it...
  • The cop just wanted to get home to his family. So he aimed to kill the guy in fluorescent green.

    If you think people don't behave differently on camera, well, I can't help you. Good luck to you in life. You need it.

    Dems requiring cops to have malpractice insurance like doctors might work. No station is going to pick up a guy who cost their dept the next town over two million.

    Fark handle checks out

    As usual

    Question, are there government doctors? Or are all doctors under employ of a government on a contract? Because the police are a government entity, and 99% of all doctors I have ever interacted with are private. Hence the insurance. And suing a body of government is just suing yourself, and hardly ever accomplishes anything. So would wrongful death insurance ever realistically exist, if I am drawing the correct conclusions?
  • A profoundly scared autistic man and his faithful helper have to act like choirs of saints when guns are pointed at them. A cop has leeway to piss his pants at completely nonthreatening human beings and gets away with his terror.
