Not a murder, merely an Ohio police chief retiring after a prank

because putting KKK stickers on a black subordinate's desk could in no way be considered harassment.
Some of those that work forces…

Why are these police not facing criminal convictions? Dismissal from their jobs is completely insufficient.

Minneapolis PD couldn't quite make it to the end of the trial without shooting another black man, this time apparently for the crime of re-entering his own vehicle during a traffic stop.

Apparently the officer meant to fire her taser but fired her gun by accident. <Sure_Jan.gif>

The officer has been found guilty of first and second degree manslaughter.

Here is a list of things you must be found guilty od to get a death sentence in Georgia: wiki clicky. I don't think these murdering c.nts did any of these. Closest is Aggravated Battery, but they were done for Aggravated Assault. So in this case, I don't think there was racism involved in the decision of the prosecutors not to seek it.


ETA emphasis on the 'in this case' bit. I am aware of racial disparities in the application of the death penalty.

Also, no one should get it, anyway.
