Default Re: BART Police - New Lawsuit / Moving Taser

Fwiw, there is still a part of me that is having trouble accepting a LEO intentionally shot a guy, face down, in the back. Even if he was a cop that occasionally slapped people around, that does not come anywhere near taking a life. But if it turns out he actually did change the position of the taser on his belt, I say draw and quarter him, in public.
I do not believe that he intentionally shot him but he should not have removed his weapon from its holster if the guy was already cuffed.

I ran across this site ( http://bluemustbetrue.com/ )when the original thread was active. When you hear about singular incidents then you can dismiss them but when the same or similar actions routinely take place and command/politicians/etc continually stand up for them it is a problem.
