RebE > a person is responsible for one’s actions even though its was unintentional.
We hold professionals not accountable for honest mistakes. How many times in her career she got the right weapon out? thousands? how many of those she saved an innocent person’s life somewhere by arresting a criminal? Maybe she was overworked with all the recent chaos and protests and did not realize .. I did not follow the case, but if this is a one-off incident and she did not have other similar cases, this is not fair. How many will now retire in order not to risk their lives for others?December 23, 2021 11:15 pm at 11:15 pm #2044496Commonsense1Participant

All this will do is discourage the Police from arresting criminals. No different than defund the police and no bail. The more criminals out there the more crime being committed.December 24, 2021 8:37 am at 8:37 am #2044531
Thanks for pointing this out.
This is what BLM has been saying.
The police follow their own set of rules and when they don’t like things, they just stop working.

What should the punishment be for a police officer with decades of experience that accidentally kills a citizen?December 24, 2021 9:24 am at 9:24 am #2044536🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Jackk – that’s an interesting take away. I read it as meaning that police will be afraid to act if they will be jailed for errors, etc. Are you saying that is BLMs teitch or is that what you think police do?December 24, 2021 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #2044583HealthParticipant
AAQ -“We hold professionals not accountable for honest mistakes.”
The lesson I see – Do Not become a Cop in Minneapolis!
They treat the Cops as Criminals & the Criminals as Heroes.
It’s not the first time.
This is the Local Government’s way to Defund the Cops backwards.

There are 2 points.
When someone is given a gun and a badge and swears to uphold law and order they better be ready to act in a professional manner 24/7. Most police do this.
1) Don’t we want the police to be more careful in the future before they pull the trigger to be 100% positive that they are holding a taser and not a gun? Didn’t we always want that ?
I was listening yesterday to a talk show host Jeff Ferguson (for 5 minutes before I couldn’t take his lying and stupidity) and he incredibly felt that 3 to 6 months in jail was enough punishment for a policeman accidentally killing an innocent person.
2) Can police do whatever they want without any repercussions by threatening to not work effectively? Can police act improperly but get away with it by other police covering up for them?
If the answer to these questions is yes, then BLM are 100% correct. Police can assassinate innocent civilians without fear of justice. That is a major problem with police in America.
I am all for the police doing their jobs but they must be held accountable when they mess up.December 24, 2021 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #2044580
Jackk you are also making my point if the courts are saying that a police officer can’t be considered afraid for their life and use a taser or gun in these cases there will be fewer car stops. More people will die from DUI for example. Do you realy think the average drunk will stop if he knows the cops are not going to shoot. More criminals on the street means more crime. You want our streets to look like the wild west of old where everyone took the law into their own hands.
Police management not the police officer, will have to decide how to solve this problem. Tactics are going to have to change so instead of trying to taser the driver a tear gas grenade will be tossed in.
What happens if you, with decades of driving experience gets into an accident? Do you go to jail? Do you lose your license to drive? I don’t think so.December 24, 2021 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #2044581December 24, 2021 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #2044589philosopherParticipant
FrumWhere, you make an astounding point. Why has what’s his name not been charged yet?! The fact is that there are numerous witnesses, and I’m sure video as well, of him pointing the gun at the cinemaphotographer. He was also the producer of the production and was negligent in the overall safety on set. Many of the cast and workers had complained. And nothing, zilch. The American people have a different set of standards for “celebrities”, particularly “celebrities” like him.

To ujm: I agree with your comment that women should not be cops. No male cop ever killed anyone unnecessarily.December 24, 2021 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #2044615
Jackk Now you are claiming that although this was a proper traffic stop and they were trying to arrest a person with an outstanding gun warrant, which means he missed a court appearance on a gun charge, resisting arrest and possibly injuring some of yhe police officers. But some how if he is shot while getting away it’s a Police Assassination. According to you the criminal is always right.December 24, 2021 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #2044616
huju: Your misplaced sarcasm is duly noted.
Women shouldn’t be in any position that requires arms. This is independent of how effective or ineffective they may be in a fight with a male.December 24, 2021 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #2044619
Jack, when you utilize rhetoric such as “the blue wall of silence”, you display an antagonism towards law enforcement and opposition to law and order.
Let us not forget the fact that this deceased individual was a criminal who was resisting arrest at the time of his death, thereby bearing a large portion of responsibility for his own demise.December 25, 2021 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #2044625tunaisafishParticipant

@Jackk That’s a good point…..

FrumWhere and Philosopher,
Re: the actor, I will re-use a comment made by Syag,
And there you have exhibit number 1 of someone commenting without having the facts. Which I guess is what his case was founded on so maybe it isn’t a problem…
And there you have exhibit number 2 …December 26, 2021 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #2045032
Are you saying that people will drive drunk as long as they know they won’t be shot at ? That is ridiculous.
I am claiming exactly what Potter said. (Although I could be more incredulous.) She said she thought she was using a taser and instead used a gun. The criminal did not talk in this case because Daunte Wright was dead.
The blue wall of silence is a fact and every cop, DA, Politician and Judge in this country knows it. It is not a view point.
THE REASON WHY, ALL OVER AMERICA, COPS ARE FORCED TO WEAR VIDEO CAMERAS IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN CAUGHT LYING AND COVERING UP FOR EACH OTHER FOR TOO LONG.
IF COPS TURN OFF THEIR VIDEO CAMERAS THEY ARE ASSUMED TO BEING COVERING UP.
Police do kill innocent people who are not violent criminals and were pulled over for a traffic stop.
That should cause you to ensure that won’t happen again.December 27, 2021 2:00 am at 2:00 am #2045080BY1212Participant
Odom muaf laolam indeed.
But before you get up on your high horse about potter let’s see how you manage in life and death situations like police officers do whenever they have to deal w violent situations.
I don’t know if potter is deserving of prison or not. But I do know that I would never want to be in the type of situation she was in..
Same goes for Israeli soldiers who have to deal with Palestinians like elor azarya.
Al tadun es chavercha ad shetagia limkomo seems extremely appropriate here, especially for someone whose ability to live a comfortable life is enabled by the sacrifice made by people like potter every day.December 27, 2021 9:41 am at 9:41 am #2045110
