In England a policeman tazed a man for carrying what he believed to be a sword....
It was a cane..... That he needed to walk..... Because he was blind....
#44 to #12 - bann (02/22/2014) [-]
Well I'm not really against gun control...but that makes a decent argument given that cane man probably isn't dead

To be fair there had been numerous reports of a man working through the street with a sword and the policeman panicked when he saw what he thought was a sword. Still pretty bad though
User avatar #430 to #138 - unfairlybanned (02/22/2014) [-]
Well, that man with the sword must've been Scottish to carry a sword.

when you hear reports about a man armed with a sword and you suddenly find yourself in the sword range of a person you have made a huge mistake, for which only you should suffer

it was when they first allowed them to carry those if I'm not mistaken, probably wanted to use his new toy...

My first thoughts on reading this. I try so 			*******		 hard to be a patriot for my country. I have read so many things just like this. It is so easy to be discouraged. This is horrible. That officer should get the same sentence as an actual murderer would, life in jail.  Could you imagine what's going through that kid's mind when he answered the door?    
"Ugh, who could be knocking at the door? I'm in the middle of a game. Well, whatever it'll be quick and I can finish that game." He didn't get to finish the game. I am studying so 			*******		 hard to be a police officer and then I see this, not only discourages me from being a patriot and loving this country, but it discourages my choice to be a Police Officer.

Be a cop, from what I gather, you'd be part of the solution and not the problem.

Don't let stories like this deter you away from being a cop, the system may not be perfect but you might be the man to come along and bring that change we need one day. So keep on chasing that goal.

I live 20 minutes away from euharlee and I have literally not heard a single god damned thing about this at school. NO ONE is talking about this,. NO ONE knows about this **** , I have been trying to spread this so badly because i want people to know about this.

My stomach hurts reading **** like this knowing that a police officer has the ability to come to your house and kill you and self defense bull **** will keep them safe.

I have not heard of any rallies or protests or anything, i called the police station and told them how this women should be sent to jail and deserves to rot in hell, they told me to mind my own business and hung up.

I honestly do not feel safe around the police. And once you lose trust with authority is when society starts to die, America will have to go through some MAJOR changes in the next 50 years if they want to avoid ending up lie Ukraine. I am genuinely upset by this whole situation, and honestly hope the police officer police woman so even less chanced of going to jail lives in jail for the rest of her life.

Your ignorance towards police officers is what is causing your distrust. Not feeling safe around a police officer just because a few individuals(Who are human beings btw) have done horrid things. My father is a police officer and I feel extremely safe around him, and any in the town department. If you think this is bad now, just look 20-30 years into the past, police officers abuse of power has gone WAY DOWN.

Not everyone is a psychopath, but since there are a few murderers out there, do you feel unsafe around everyone?
#398 to #393 - ihateemo ONLINE (02/22/2014) [-]
Oh no I am weird where i can walk around Compton and feel safe where as people with power who i know have the ability to get away with crime scare me. Irrational fear, yes. Will my opinion towards authority change anytime soon, probably not.
User avatar #400 to #398 - gatorade (02/22/2014) [-]
Judge police as people, not as a group. Just because My Lai happened does not mean the whole US military are murderers.
#121 to #104 - monkeyheadbsc (02/22/2014) [-]
"That officer should get the same sentence as an actual murderer would"

Isn't this actual murder?
User avatar #389 to #121 - gatorade (02/22/2014) [-]
technically it'd be 2nd Degree murder, since (at least I don't think) the police officer did not plan on shooting and killing the person.
#439 to #389 - monkeyheadbsc (02/23/2014) [-]
Ah, ok, we (in germany) have a similar differentiation between "Mord" (murder) and "Totschlag" (lit.: beating to death), where latter means killing someone without planing.
But there's a debate whether or not "Mord" should remain a seperate crime, since the original law came frome the nazis. A argument against it is that it shouldn't matter for what reason you kill but that you killed a person. An example for the reasoning is this. Say, a man and a woman, each responsible for a child by semselves, get taken away said child (I mean the child is killed by person X). So the man is physicaly strong and goes to X and beats him to death => Totschlag (probably equivalent to "your" 2nd degree murder, since he did it in affection and rather abruptly. The mother on the other hand kills X by learning his habits and poisoning his coffee => Mord (1st degree?) because it was planned and "heimtückisch" (treacherous").
User avatar #441 to #439 - gatorade (02/23/2014) [-]
What you're talking about is very similar to the US system, with some differences.

With my limited knowledge on law, this is what I know.

We have Manslaughter: Manslaughter for example would be someone fails to stop at a red light and runs over and kills a person. Or someone runs out into the street and you're doing nothing wrong, but you hit and kill the person, you could be found guilty by a jury on this charge. This could carry a sentence of about 10-20 years.

2nd Degree Murder: This is a kill such as an accidental discharge of a gun, which resulted killing someone. I have seen this most commonly used when a robber is armed and while they're attempting to rob a store or person, they kill someone, they knew what they were doing but they did not plan on killing anyone. This could carry a sentence of 20-30 years.

1st Degree Murder: Also commonly known as premeditated murder, where someone plans and carries out a plan to kill someone. This is usually what people are charged with when they kill someone. Usually carries a sentence of 30-Life, or a death sentence.

i usually hate cops for terrible crap like this and other abuses of justice that they get away with, but you, i like. You understand real justice and you are exactly the kind of cop we need here in America. If more cops were like you, I would feel more safe. As of now, I'm afraid to answer any door.
User avatar #388 to #107 - gatorade (02/22/2014) [-]
There are more good cops than bad cops.

"I usually hate cops for terrible crap like this" just shows ignorance. A normal police officer that has saved innocents lives are the good cops. Thinking every police officer is bad, or abuses their power is foolish.

If a life is in danger due to a person with a weapon of any kind, then a police officer is authorized to discharge their weapon at the person.

If a person life is in danger, then a cop can shoot the asshole.

This article (and a slew of people commenting) shows that the police force in the USA needs to be cleaned up. Just like in war, where war crimes are committed but very few people, the whole bunch get punished. 1 rotten apple, spoils the barrel. Thinking that all cops are power hungry assholes is ridiculous and ignorant. Thinking that there are no bad apples, is just as bad.

Don't judge them as a group, judge them as people.

I live literally 15 minutes away from him, in Cartersville, Georgia...so let me clarify what's happened here.

This kid (17) was wanted on some minor misdemeanors, and gave no resistance upon answering his door. A female officer shot him ON SIGHT after being told THREE TIMES, "It's not a gun!" by her superiors.

The kid's little brother had ran to the door to see if his older brother was okay, and the female officer then AIMED HER WEAPON AT THE CHILD. a ******* CHILD.

The initial report by the police department was that the 17 year old has no weapon, and only had a BB gun ELSEWHERE IN THE HOUSEHOLD.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has just released a report (yesterday, 2/21/2014) that the 17 year old answered his door with a FIREARM IN HAND.

This is why I ******* do not trust law enforcement, especially in my town and county..
User avatar #232 to #230 - psychonaut (02/22/2014) [-]
I heard the cop was there for his father.
User avatar #234 to #232 - octopusafrican (02/22/2014) [-]
That, too. The father had a probation violation warrant, and the 17 year old had some other misdemeanor mentioned in the GBI report, but not expanded on.
User avatar #378 to #230 - tealcanaan (02/22/2014) [-]
Her shooting would have been unjustified even if he did have a gun in hand, she failed to inform him that she was an officer and was just banging on the door like a retard. She needs to go to prison for first degree manslaughter or third degree murder.
#316 to #230 - anon (02/22/2014) [-]
I am not arguing with you that this was a giant **** up and never should have happened.
But if you're arguing that you do not trust a single cop because of the actions and likes of one dumb bitch that should not have even made it through high school.

I know cops: two of my best friends were K-9 officers, and three were regular officers. Not one of them is a bad person, not at all. If you believe no cop is should be trusted because of one, then I guess you have never heard of the stories of cops dying for what they wanted to do in life.
I respect that you're not like Facebook ******* , screaming, "FUK DA COPS MAN THERE PIGS", but please look past just one dumb cunt.
User avatar #438 to #316 - octopusafrican (02/23/2014) [-]

User avatar #437 to #316 - octopusafrican (02/23/2014) [-]
It's not a single person's action. This type of **** happens within law enforcement EVERY. ******* . DAY.
#379 to #316 - anon (02/22/2014) [-]
But because these bad cops not being fired or punished and remaining working. How are you supposed to know who is a good cop or bad. The best thing to do in these corrupt cases is to just not trust any. Right?
User avatar #408 to #379 - gatorade (02/22/2014) [-]
That's not a very good idea. Of course you should respect authority, don't be an asshole like the idiots you see on youtube. Show respect like you would to anyone else. This police officer is a horrible cop. She should be severely punished for it.

You're right, take everything with a grain of salt, be observant and "stay frosty" but don't be an ignorant person who distrust everyone just because of a few.

Do you hate and distrust all military personnel just because of the My Lai massacre?
