    Oh, for sure. I was just expecting her to walk like the rest of them typically do.

    I'm shocked too, but that prosecutor dragged that woman from here to kingdom come. She did not look sympathetic at all on the stand, even my mom (who is a retired LEO and will sadly defend cops past the point of reason) was like "yeah, that bitch needs to go to prison that was murder straight-up".

    I'm well past the point of being surprised when cops get off for killing innocent minorities. It says a lot about the state of our affairs when we are MORE shocked when they face consequences.

    I'm glad justice was done, but justice doesn't make victims or their families whole after a crime like this.

    $20 says if it had been a man he would've been acquitted, or at least found guilty on a lesser count.

    and she'll be out in far less imo. So now we get the right verdict, and a soft sentence bc shes a cop. If we reversed the roles & me or you walked into a cops apt & killed him, I wonder if we would get 10 years with parole available after 5? Bullshit.

    Cop is sent to investigate a home that had doors open. After creeping around the exterior of the house, he fires into a dark window, murdering a black woman in her home.

    Abridged version:
    -Neighbor called non-emergency line to request a wellness check on the family (who he personally knew) after observing doors open in the middle of the night
    -Cops arrived, noted open door in well-lit area, but proceeded to go to a dark part of the yard
    -Cop sees someone through a window, shouts a hands-up command, and fires a single fatal shot - all in the span of four seconds

    Here's how it's going to play out: cop will testify that the open door led him to believe there was an intruder in the house. They found a weapon in the room, so they'll claim that the cop saw it through the window and felt his life was in danger. Months and months from now, it'll finally go to trial, drag out, and he'll be acquitted. The cycle will continue.

    Please, universe, prove me wrong on this.

    She was sitting in her bedroom, playing video games with her 8 year old nephew. She got up to check out noises outside of the window, and that was it.

    That poor little kid. I cannot even fucking imagine.

    Fuck the cops and their tHeRe WaS a GuN iN tHe HoMe.

    AND? You know if that shit was anywhere near her, the headline would be HERO COP FENDS OFF VIOLENT THUG BRANDISHING A WEAPON.

    Next they're going to discover that she smoked weed in 2002.

    This shit is exhausting. Where you at, NRA? Oh, yeah...

    The murderer resigned. I hope he still is brought to trial and convicted but the blue wall, right?

    The Fort Worth PD has also requested that the FBI investigate a possible civil rights violation.

    Not sure this is the right thread, but it feels the most relevant (plaese correct me if i'm wrong)

    So Chris Morris is the director of The Day Shall Come (a dark comedy about race and the FBI in the US, it's very good) and he did a Podcast talking about how they made the film and...fuck me, some of these entrapment cases the FBI have created are just fucking NUTS! It's well worth a listen (note that the Podcast is made in a light comedy ton regardless of what ever they are talking about)

    And there we have it...he's not gonna be convicted of murder. I'm aware he's already been charged, but now that there's a plausible shadow of a doubt that he might have seen a gun, murder isn't going to happen. Lesser charge, maybe.

    (And to be clear...if I were a gun owner and I noticed strangers creeping around my yard in the middle of the night, you bet your ass I'd be armed as I investigated the situation. Police fucked up royally in so many ways beyond the obvious "shooting someone" portion of the night.)

    According to the warrant, Jefferson had been playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew in the bedroom when she told him she had heard noises outside the window.Her nephew told police she took the handgun and pointed it at the window right before she was shot.
    Officer C.A. Darch, Dean's partner, told investigators she saw Jefferson's face through the window when Dean fired his weapon, but the warrant does not say whether the officers saw Jefferson holding the weapon before firing.

    He still didn’t identify himself as police, and he gave her less than 1 second to comply with his demand to put her hands up.

    She had a legally-owned weapon in an open carry state. Texas is also a castle doctrine state.

    They're definitely making every single effort to change the narrative now to avoid having to prosecute and imprison another cop.
