hmmmm

His parents said he just needed to sleep. A SWAT team came instead. (Spoiler: he ends up dead.)

His parents said he just needed to sleep. A SWAT team came instead.

Sigh…
A tragedy that could have been avoided.
Another case of cops refusing to let things like compassion, human decency, and being charged with protecting -a.k.a. not harming – the citizenry get in the way of needlessly putting another living, breathing human being’s live in danger.
It would have been easier on everyone if the first cop on the scene had just walked upstairs and shot the guy in the head.
Typical, typical, typical.
Sighhhh…..

The cops even try to claim that there is something wrong with her plates! Like lying little toddlers trying to justifying sneaking into the cookie car…

They both should be yanked from patrol and permanently parked at a desk because they are a complete embarrassment to the badge.

Murderous monster.

In Trump era’s first leak arrest, the news site will help fund Reality Winner’s defense.

…, the site — founded by the crusading journalists Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras — came under fire for inadvertently failing in that core mission. Now, having taken a deep look at what happened, the Intercept has adopted some reforms, and its parent company is helping a young whistleblower who has been charged under the Espionage Act.

The Trump administration charged 25-year-old Reality Leigh Winner, a former Air Force linguist, with leaking classified information — just hours after the Intercept published a story based on a National Security Agency document describing efforts by Russian military intelligence to hack into America’s voting system.

Nah, the case posed the question of whether or not the police have the right to murder at will and without consequences. Apparently they do. Once can only hope the family sues the city, the police force, and Heaggan-Brown past bankruptcy all the way to Kingdom Come.
