POLICE BRUTALITY: Surveillance Video Emerges of Today’s Empire State Building Shooting

Nine people shot by police in response to murderer who already killed his target, and had only 1 bullet left in his gun.

He was already being shadowed by a civilian. The police could have sucker-tackled him with undercover officers. Instead, they fired 16 shots in a crowded area, and shot 9 people.

Instead of de-escalating a protecting the public, they escalated and caused the casualties to multiply by 10.

The entire country of Germany fires less than 100 bullets EVERY YEAR.  They actually practice restraint in the public interest; something American cops don’t seem to understand.

The police are worse than the original gunman. The public is lucky none of them were killed.

“I can’t see this as anything other than gross incompetence by the police. The NYPD in particular has a reputation for hosing down the general vicinity – nobody should ever do that, especially on a crowded sidewalk.” -my friend Stacy

Furthermore – a murder escapes the justice system with zero consequence. Death is meaningless. This man should go to prison, and instead escaped this. If you’re going to kill yourself, WHY NOT murder your enemies if the police just help you escape it all in the end? No justice here.

THIN BLUE LINE: No Good Cops Go Unpunished When They Stop a Beatdown

Bad cops are “just a few bad apples”?  Kinda like how just a few of the Germans were bad during WW2, eh?  Pointed out in the comments is that the phrase “a few bad apples” comes from the origin whereby a few bad apples sealed in a barrel full of good apples will ruin all the other apples. The whole figure of speech of “A few bad apples”, as commonly used, is incorrect. A few bad apples after the fact means your whole barrel went rotten.

I did not realize this. 

So anyway… Here’s what happens when you’re a good apple. If you literally stop police from beating up an innocent person, as a cop, your job will be put on the line. Her department is calling her “psychologically unfit for duty” and trying to fire her. 

She’s also the first lesbian cop there.

So if you wonder why people think cops are assholes — look no further than stories like this compared and contrasted to the neverending constant barrage of abuse of power performed by those with badges.

Funny how they are bringing up old bad things she supposedly did as reasons to get rid of her – reasons only brought up after this. I’ve seen such tactics used before, both in the news and in real life. :/
