Right.  I have brought up the case of Daniel Shaver.  Why were there no protests over this?  Why was the town of Mesa pretty much silent?  Want to know who was the most vocal group about Daniel Shaver?  Black lives matter.  

 

At the time I never saw anything from BLM on the matter, they brought up his case?

What if this is an honest (yes tragic) mistake?

What if she was a citizen?

What If I made the same mistake, got off on the wrong floor and thought somebody was in my apartment?

Would it make a difference, if so who and why?

Actions have consequences even if a mistake, you carry a gun around and you have to accept that your choice to fire that weapon has consequences.  You can't enter someone's home and call them a threat, at best if you legitimately thought you were threatened your mistake of entering the wrong apartment created the situation that resulted in a loss of life thus we have the charge of manslaughter for those accidental deaths. 

 

If she was a normal citizen she'd have been arrested already.

 

You'd be arrested and in jail (or on bail).

 

The color/gender of the victim wouldn't make any difference but in the case of our slanted legal system the consequences for officers (on and off duty) see to be "different" even when there isn't any official justification (in the eyes of humanity) for their actions.

Good, its a legit/great example for the cause of unjustifiable police shootings: victim was unarmed, non-combative, trying to be as compliant as possible but just couldn't live up to the hoop jumping circus in the needless high pressure scenario the sergeant created.

What should we protest? Everyone agrees this was an awful thing, no?


You need to watch PCU again.

so the reason BLM protests shootings is because they don't agree they're awful?

You're drawing the absolute weirdest conclusion imaginable.

You need to watch PCU again.

In addition to the hotel guy, I thought the one where the cops shot and killed the guy climbing out of the wrecked car was extremely bad.

She was arrested and charged with manslaughter when it happened. She is out on $300k bond.

She wasn’t immediately arrested per following the thread correct? Days later right?

No. She was charged and turned herself in 3 days later.

True...3 days later. It isn't uncommon for charges for things like this to take a few days. There is a story here about a convenience store owner that shot an armed robber while he was running away. It took about a month to charge him.

If the roles in the Dallas case were reversed, not only would the black guy have been arrested immediately, he would have got the "cop killer" treatment.

Sounds like they may have found some evidence that this wasn't an accident.
