    `
    Before reporting this incident to his superiors, he texted his union first. Sounds suspicious to me.

    No, I'm simply pointing out that most--all?--of the folks who automatically condemn every single accused police officer, have never been a cop, nor will they ever be. That fact leads them to make unfair and unjust condemnation that smacks of cowardice and hypocrisy.

    I don't think we condemn every single accused police officer, but this one was indicted.

    Now drop the "were you a cop" nonsense. It is just that.
    You're saying that cops do their jobs in accordance with their own principles and sense of responsibility?

    I am saying exactly what I said without you making a fallacy statement.

    Perhaps the public outcry over the killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown have resulted in a change in policy. Perhaps now cops who kill innocent people will start to face the consequences for their actions and at least be charged and tried in court, where their guilt or innocence can actually be determined, instead of summarily never even charging them and almost never indicting them.

    Gurley did nothing more than walk into the stairwell of the building where he lived, and a man with a gun murdered him. Anyone who can't handle that and reacts with lethal force to the mere presence of another person has no place being tasked with protecting peace anywhere in this country and has no place at all being trusted with lethal force. Cops like this need to be pruned from the profession and it needs to be taught how to operate like adults, rather than this "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality that has resulted in so many deaths.
    At some point, we're really going to have to reign in the government and properly punishment transgressions against the People. We'll see where this goes, I'd be surprised if they got a conviction, though any normal citizen certainly would.
