Just an FYI, while you were watching your favorite sports team, favorite T.V. show or whatever you do in your “free time” (read: “squandered time”) a mentally-ill homeless man was murdered. He was murdered by someone who was paid with your tax money. He was murdered by someone in a department that you have a voice in. He was murdered by someone who’s training and funding is ultimately accountable to you. But you’re away. You are too busy to even hear about this, let alone be informed and care about what happened.
A homeless man was killed by police armed to the teeth with military weaponry. These are not police anymore, these are lethal-killers with no hesitation training. They practice almost everyday at their job to kill you and your family. This psycho-killer-cop, this trained murderer, trained assassin, Keith Sandy, made a threat to co-workers about how he wants to shoot a mentally-ill homeless man in the penis after calling him a “fucking lunatic”. At the time of this writing, he is on paid leave, at home and is armed.
These police brought the dreaded, “scary”, assault-rifles to confront a homeless man for “illegal camping”. After a few hours of talking, they decided to literally wage war against one man. They threw a flash bang grenade at him in a successful attempt to escalate the situation. Who would throw such a thing right next to someone if you want them to surrender? That is going to scare the hell out of anyone. It’s going to confuse them. It’s going to put them in fear for their lives. Flash bang grenades are extremely dangerous and have severely injured many children.
Think about this situation for a moment. If you were caught on camera, making a remark about how you’d like you to “shoot this fucking lunatic in the penis” and a short time later, you end up shooting that “lunatic” to death, what would happen to you? Would you be arrested? Would charges be filed against you? Would you be put in jail pending a trial? If you’re not employed by a police department, you probably would be in jail for murder. But since you’re a cop? You are extremely well protected. And there is a likely possibility that you will never have to pay for the crime of premeditated murder. Dianne Feinstein was quick to jump on the opportunity to ban “scary assault rifles” after a school shooting. However, you will never see her talk about disarming the militarized police even when the police outright murder someone.
