Watched the whole thing. They didn’t do anything wrong and this is nothing like the Floyd incident. This is actually how they are trained. That’s why there isn’t outrage over it

That and he’s Hispanic.  There isn’t an epidemic of “failure to take responsibility for one’s actions” in that community.

some of these comments... I respect anyones opinion. I just also take it with a grain of salt, if someone has zero experience in something. Like virgins critiquing porn. "Her tits are too small".

Major city in liberal Calif. proposes highest-ever police budget

A California city is set to buck the "defund" trend as it plans to unveil its highest-ever police budget.

The proposed police budget is set just shy at $165.8 million, a roughly $9.4 million increase from last year’s amended budget.

Sacramento City Manager Howard Chan presented the new annual budget, which is set to start with the next fiscal year July 1. One notable item was the police budget, which has continued to grow year over year -- barring a small amendment last year to remove $1 million.

Sacramento had voted in October 2020 to push for "new approaches" to public safety, but the new budget covers a number of changes that would be necessary for general police reforms.

The budget covers a number of additions, including five new officers and necessary equipment, such as body cameras -- set at $1.6 million -- and IT infrastructures such as data storage, software and backup solutions -- coming in at $1.5 million.

The budget also proposes $880,740 for "less-than-lethal" equipment.

The mammoth new budget flies in defiance of a trend seen across the country, with at least 18 major cities reducing their police budgets over the past year.

However, 24 cities increased their police spending for fiscal 2021, as well, including Atlanta, Omaha and Phoenix.

Anti-ICE Portland rioters run wild, threaten officers

Portland protests on May Day devolved into a riot overnight when about 100 people engaged in "autonomous demonstrations" near an ICE facility and police made at least six arrests, including for one individual who allegedly was menacing officers with a knife.

The police took to Twitter to post several pictures of the damage to stores in the area. Three Starbucks had their windows shattered and a Hilton in the city was tagged with graffiti. Police also posted what appeared to be an instruction pamphlet on how to make a slingshot with a sling and a hammer.

Most Portland riot suspects will not be prosecuted: US attorney

David Bouchard admitted he put a Customs and Border Protection officer in a chokehold. Charles Comfort was indicted by a grand jury of civil disorder for twice charging at Portland Police Bureau officers and hitting them with a makeshift shield then kicking a third officer while being arrested. Both men faced federal charges stemming from their actions during a summer of more than 100 straight nights of often violent protests in Portland. But Bouchard and Comfort are among dozens of Portland federal arrestees whose cases were dismissed or are being deferred without so much as a day behind bars. 

Between May 25 and Oct. 7, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon filed federal charges against 97 people connected to the Portland unrest. Since then 58 of those cases have either been dismissed outright or are on track for dismissal through a deferred resolution agreement. Thirty-two cases are still pending, with many likely to also end in dismissal according to sources. Seven people have entered guilty pleas.

What a shithole.

Arkansas rushed to kill this guy because the lethal drug was expiring. 

The article gives almost zero information. It could easily be interpreted as this guy had an accomplice in the murder. With that said, this is why I have conflicting views on the death penalty.

It could definitely be interpreted as establishing reasonable doubt yet they killed him anyway coz you never want to waste a perfectly good batch of poison

Right. That’s why I said I have conflicting views on the death penalty. That is a very final outcome. Kind of hard to undo

He was probably guilty of what they charged him with but you simply can’t have this shit.  My problem was how fast the conviction came in.  They didn’t even discuss it.  One article I was said if it wasn’t for 1 hesitant juror they would have been back in 10 minutes with a guilty verdict.  Guilty or innocent that is not doing your job as a juror.

If this is accurate it's good evidence for any future appeals for Chauvin. 

Appeals, or have the verdict thrown out and a new trial issued?  One of the lawyers or Cals can probably answer better.

That will never happen. No way a court is going to put their lives and family's lives in jeopardy over this. At this point it has nothing to do with justice and the rule of law.

Well, he killed the guy, so there's that.

 

He gave him hypertension, forced him to smoke crack and made him resist arrest? Fuck, they didn’t tell me that on Fox News.

Did Chauvin give him Covid, too?

Of course not, but he still killed him.

Sign into one of the alt accounts next time. It's more believable.
