As that famous saying goes, black lives matter, or at least thats the theory. As a matter of fact, if you come to think about it, all lives matter, not only black lives, that if you want to be consistent with the dont be racist, dont be evil routine. However, the thing nobody talks about when it comes to the lefts propaganda about blacks getting killed by racist and evil cops in droves is that black in the US commit a disproportionate amount of violent crimes. Also, its worth mentioning that blacks get killed mostly by other blacks (gang/drug related violence, read Baltimore, Chicago et al), including black cops, because guess what: in predominantly black neighborhoods, most cops are black, or they patrol in mixed teams (white/black/Asian or whatever) in order to prevent accusations of racism et al when SHTF; you know what I am talking about. Now, speaking of black lives matter, 52 percent of homicides in the US are committed by blacks, despite them being a mere 13 percent of the population.

I thought it was $4 .... but in any case cops always win. Remember when cops went to the wrong house and threw in a flash bang that injured a child in a crib? They got away with that one as well.
I find it a bit dubious and would like to know the racial makeup of the jury and their thinking. Why not deny any culpability and monetary reward rather than a token amount that sends a message of some culpability but it’s irrelevant or ‘we don’t really care’.
Any good links to the details of the police action in question?
Drunk, waving a gun, and I assume to be hard of hearing (re: noise complaint) are a deadly combination when a cop is shouting “put down that gun”. What could go wrong!
This is funny as hell. I read the article.
I got hit on by a cop who pulled me over for no reason whatsoever. I was in uniform at the time.
Ouch. Thats harsh.
Possibly the jury was sending a very subtle message?
From your link:
‘A little food for thought: the guy is on his own property, and he was even inside his own house when they shot him. They also did not know for sure that nobody else came into the garage after he shut the door, so they could have shot one of the kids for all they know. It seems rash to me, and then to award them $.04 when the man of the family (despite how bad) was killed is pretty sad. I have a huge issue with cops coming on your property and shooting you if you are not directly threatening them. If you say well, they knew he had a gun so they shot through the door. Think about that. So if a cop comes to your house for a call and they know you have a gun (registered weapon) can they then just shoot through the front door or a window because they knew you had a gun??? I am really tired of cops getting to kill people on their own property without any real consequences. Apparently a jury thought otherwise.’
I got hit on by a cop that I had called when I was leaving for a trip and discovered my car had been broken into. I was in uniform as well.
I had a neighbor who was a cop in a county just outside of DC and he used to joke about he and his buddies pulling over pretty women just to get their names and addresses.
I simply asked him for the name of his supervisor. He turned around and left. I got the number of his patrol car and called the local WSP (Washington State Patrol) office. Nothing came of it.
More and more I hate to have to call a local cop. You don’t know what’ll transpire. Scary that you don’t know who to trust anymore. Seems you’re between a hood and a cop nowadays.
4 cents. Yeah that will make race relations better.
No, they did not get away with that. That entire drug task force was disbanded because of that raid and I believe some of the cops held responsible.
They must have taken Biden’s idea to shoot through the door.
The black crime statistic becomes even more glaring when you consider black males make up about 6-7% of the total population but commit probably 90% of those crimes attributed to blacks. Black lives only matter when power and/or money can be gained from exploiting them. Hence, black killing black means nothing to the black establishment.
The Onion changed its name to IWB?
Or is CNN doing the fakie news thing again?
The lawyers get a lot more.
