Kops Keep Killing: KKK (1)
|Sheriff's deputies are now paramilitary agents.|
The black man, Michael Thomas, 62, was shot on purpose in his own living room after sheriff's deputies responded to unfounded reports of a domestic altercation inside the home between Thomas and his hard of hearing fiancé. According to the deputies with blood on their hands, Mr. Thomas came to the door but refused to comply with their demands.
|Why would anyone think sheriffs are "racist"?|
One deputy claims to have interpreted that this meant Mr. Thomas was going to try to take one of their guns, leaving the deputy open to execute the black man and claim the homicide was permissible, or at least the sort of police-involved shooting that the deceased cannot contest so the officer's word is taken as all the evidence needed to close the case without ever filing criminal charges that might deter these incidents. The county will have to pay out a considerable civil fine to make it all go away in spite of all the recent protests against this very excessive force policing. More
