Yup. If you are a 17 year old passenger in a car that sideswipes an off duty cop, the cop can chase you down, fire indiscriminately in a car full of 5 teenagers, and NOT GET CHARGED FOR SHOOTING YOU AND PUTTING YOU IN THE HOSPITAL IN CRITICAL CONDITION.
Is it any wonder people don’t respect american authority? American authority does not submit to law. They are simply thugs who do what they want — and the system lets them, which is why they do it.
No charges. For shooting an unarmed teenage passenger in the back after chasing down their car in road rage. The officer is not even named. Fucking ridiculous.
