Lords can kill peasants, but peasants can’t kill Lords. So says the King. In a tyranny.
Just practicing for 2014.
This was a buy-and-bust that had the deceased running from the police. No warrant was needed because the entry was part of the hot pursuit of the suspect. Odds are, the suspect made a sudden movement to flush the evidence, and the cop mistook it for an attempt to draw a firearm.
Once inside, Haste identified himself as a cop and fired at Graham point-blank in the bathroom after mistakenly believing he saw a gun, police officials said.
Cops found a bag of marijuana near Grahams body and suspected he was trying to flush it down the toilet. No weapon was found.
The ruling Wednesday reignited the widespread anger over the incident. This is an outrageous miscarriage of justice and an insult to the family and supporters of Ramarley Graham, said the Rev. Al Sharpton.
this is why regular people don’t trust cops or the justice system.
No, just the WOD (aka the govt declares 50% of American Citizens criminal.) spreading out, getting settled in.
Enjoy your police state subjects.
That headline doesn’t tell the whole story. The police officer had information that the drug dealer was armed. The dealer fled into the apt. and was attempting to get rid of the drugs when he turned on the officer and was shot. One druggie dead that won’t get more kids hooked.
NY Police should not be allowed weapons.
Ramarley ??? What kind of name is that...
RIP...gunned down by JBT
How many people in that building including cops could have been killed?
It was damned irresponsible and illegal to enter that building.
We live in a police state. I was driving to work last week and the popo were doing car searches at the stop light under the pretext of handing out a pamphlet and stating just want to let you know the fines have gone up for seatbelt violations.........walking from car to car eyeballing the passenger compartment for contraband......... chilling
Simply put, the judge *had* to throw out the indictment, because the prosecutor made a fatal error when presenting the case to the grand jury. However, the judge’s order was not “with prejudice”, so the case can and will be refiled before another grand jury.
The prosecutor’s error was that he did not present the recorded-on-police-radio instructions to the officer who shot the suspect. That was it, but yes, it is a serious flaw to an indictment. No way could that indictment have survived into trial.
The “they had no warrant” charge was bogus, because they were in pursuit, so they didn’t need a warrant.
What matters is that the officer legitimately *thought* he was armed, so if he made any movement that looked like he was pulling a gun, the shooting was legitimate.
Time for a revolt yet?
