Yeah I hope they burn the city to the ground when those cops get acquitted.

Are we agreed those cops are getting off? Like they probably won't be reinstated (I stand open to being wrong on even that) but they'll still get off on a reasonable doubt cause juries are suckers for seeing cops as being in a warzone where any level of brutality is excusable so long as it's possible that the victim could have eaten a can of spinach and murdered them if they so much as relaxed for a second. At best they'll get five years with four on probation or something.

100%. Maaaaaaybe the actual murderer will get a kushy sentence/early retirement. The other three will go on to work in another county.

I was released from Jury Duty for saying I disagreed with the statement "cops are honest people." lol

Nice. I just got one of those jury questionnaire letters so I'll make sure to say all cops are bastards.

Or I'll go the Doug Stanhope route for the lulz.

What got me out was telling them that standalone testimony is an unreliable form of evidence unless it's supported by other forms of evidence.

Well that's depressing. I guess if I said that CSI Miami was my Bible I'd be a shoe-in.

Okay, so dude didn't just start shooting at cops as framed.

Cops were responding to a call from his wife saying that he was going to kill her. Cops showed up and he started shooting at them.
