    I’ve been on an anti-police posting thing for more than a few years now. I’ve had some shitty interactions with police in my life that has driven my empathy and compassion for them down down down lower than a badger’s ball-sack.

    It is exhausting. I am tired. My anger has been subsumed by a sadness that anger can no longer carbonize, and none of social media has made anything better.

    I and others have gotten more brash towards LEO online and irl, and LEO has escalated in lethality.

    I am out of ideas. I am out of yelling and screaming and giving the finger to the police.

        I agree. But I am without a group of support. And the never-ending inquisitions that the police labeled “investigations” protecting their need to murder, assault, and abuse has driven me to despair.

        Even their training admits that “a kill” creates their strongest and best sex of their lives.

        And look at how police respond to being asked not to kill so much: like we are trying to steal their erections.

        There is no solution except burn it all down. And I cannot and will not do that.

    I remember this was really fishy in how the police reported it at the time, and it seemed pretty clear that this was likely. I hoped it could be proven eventually.

    I have my doubts that we’ll see repercussions for the cops who pulled the trigger, but this is an encouraging development.

    The article does include this at the end:

    The California department of justice is investigating the case under a law requiring inquiries into police killings of unarmed people.

    So maybe there will be justice?

      I wouldn’t count on that. They’re going to justify it as confusion during a shootout.

        I would hope it’s very much a steep hill to climb when you want to justify killing the subject of an Amber Alert due to confusion during the shootout.

        I get your point, and I know that’s the standard MO, but not killing the person you were sent to rescue seems like a priority that even police should be able to understand. Hell it was a popular 80s video game.
