Cops ring in the new year with a senseless killing  Reply with quote  

I know the news channel is trying to cover their asses, and I also know that they try to keep a friendly relationship with law enforcement, but let the video speak for itself.

At an East Bay BART train station on New Years. I'm really glad that civilians are using cameras to assist in criminal charges against cops.

RIP

What a casual display of murder. They didn't even flinch or get worked up. The cop just raised up and fired, like he was watering somebodies lawn. Absolutely vulgar.

I think that the constant disclaimers and reminders about how we can't really jump to conclusions based on the video were ridiculous.

You know in the movie Aliens how all of the space marines are prepared to die for their job and are calmed by that fact except Bill "We're all gonna die, MAN" Paxton"? There are thousands of Bill "We are all gonna die, MAN" Paxtons running around this country wearing badges. That soft piece of shit got scared and I will bet you one million dollars that his record will provide evidence of previous pants-shitting and irrational cop behavior. I'm not on-board for these blanket "fuck all cops" statements at all, but there is a large, LARGE percentage of fuckheads and lost souls who fell into this job by way of nepotism or general shittiness. They better give that guy the Tango and Cash prison treatment.

Oh my lord. Absolute murder. This man needs to be locked up for the rest of his life.

I agree with Sage on this. Fuck a disclaimer this is straight up murder.

i think one of the saddest parts of this video is that people did nothing.

It couples with the programming all our lives, through school and media, (at least on the east coast) making us fear guns, and to panic around them.


Made worse, im sure that the psycho serial-murderer/liberator cops and military coming back from Iraq are going to enjoy the vacuum of power very much.


Mmmmmmm, the taste of boot

Yeah, you FUCKING COWARDS

Seriously though, every BART cop I've seen was like 6'5" and girthtastic. Not to mention wearing a sidearm.

Dude must've left his taser in his other pants. Shit is insane. So sad.

Jesus fucking christ. I'd like to see everyone standing by rush those fuckers too, but realistically, that's not going to happen. The best we can hope for is that the fucker who pulled that trigger gets tried and found guilty. Actually, that's probably the second best that we can hope for, the best would be that a mob drags him out of his house and shoots him the the street and gets away with it.

The girl submitted that video and didn't keep it anonymous is pretty damn brave.
