It was announced this morning that Ex-Mesa, AZ police officer Philip Brailsford was acquitted of second degree murder and reckless manslaughter.
This will come to no surprise to anyone familiar with criminal justice reform, being as the thin blue line of legal protection benefits the monopoly security forces throughout America. Police are all but trained to shoot first and ask questions later, and there is no better case than the deadly encounter which ended the life of Daniel Shaver. Warning, this video is very graphic, but is important to observe the near execution style tactic officer Brailsford coldly employed.
Here are the facts. Daniel Shaver (a pest control worker) was showing off his pellet gun in his hotel room, when some busybody saw the gun through a window. These guests told the hotel management, who called police, then the video linked above ensued. Panicking and obviously confused, Daniel frantically attempts to obey every single command the officer screams at him while a gun is pointed at him while begging for his life. He is told to crawl with his left ankle wrapped around his right ankle. Daniel is wearing what looks like ill fitting gym pants and pauses at one moment to pull up his pants (as a result of the commands officers were giving him), causing the officers to shoot him in response to him reaching for his waistband.
Nowhere in the video is it apparent that Mr Shaver was armed. Nowhere in the video is it apparent that this person is criminally insane. The video shows a scared young man who was gunned down in cold blood. What is apparent to me is that we have a very real problem with police violence that people have put up with for far too long.
