We were told that body cameras would be the answer to police brutality. All it did was create tax payer-funded snuff films.

There were 5 heavily armed, armor wearing Mesa police officers in that hallway up against a man and a woman who didn't appear to be armed at all.

The man continually tried to comply to the cop's demands (he was drunk at the time) who almost seemed to be toying with him. Lie down! Hands up! Hands behind your head! Move forward! Don't talk just comply!

Why couldn't 4 of the cops keep guns trained while one cop moved forward and handcuffed the dude?

Murder plain and simple. The status quo for cop training has to change. But it won't.

Oh, and the judge agreed with the defense and would not allow the jury to hear or see anything about the etched "You're f*cked" on the killer's assault style weapon.

Inadmissible. Why?????

Disgusting in every way.

This one has to be the last fucking straw. How more blatant and on-purpose can a MURDER / EXECUTION be?

Even CNN has it right this time!

Daniel Shaver's shooting by police officer was an avoidable execution (Opinion) - CNN

Quote:
Many of the police shootings that have drawn attention to the inappropriate and all too often deadly actions of officers illustrate the role of race and implicit bias in their devastating outcomes. The case of Philip Brailsford illustrates something different -- a young, inexperienced police officer filled with hubris who made a series of preventable errors that resulted in the infuriatingly "legal" execution of a man.

In the numerous officer-involved shootings I've reviewed, I can often provide a sensible explanation for an officer's actions or find benefit of the doubt to apply.
There are neither here.
