Cop and the asshole who called in the "swat" should both get charged with fucking murder. Enough of this bullshit with the fucking police shooting first and never bothering to ask questions or even assess the fucking situation anymore.

Heroes for not effectively or ethically cleansing the cancerous rot that goes to their very core.

They tried "ethically cleansing" but the handwriting on the instructions was sloppy and they thought it said "ethnically cleansing"

I'm shocked, utterly shocked, that a blue suited, jackbooted government thug has yet again murdered an unarmed civilian.

But, yeah, right...they're heroes. Heroes for slaughtering unarmed civilians posing no real, concrete threat. Heroes for destroying or burying evidence to keep from facing their actions. Heroes for not effectively or ethically cleansing the cancerous rot that goes to their very core.

It's the gun culture and institutional paranoia in America. Do you see ANY other country in the world where this is a regular occurrence like it is in the US? Yeah, the only thing that will stop this bullshit is charging the swatter with 1st degree murder and the cop with it as well, or at least manslaughter.

Lesson here is DON'T walk out the door without communicating with them first. THEN you come out with your hands already up after it's been established you're not a criminal and don't have a weapon and you're coming out with your hands up. Or like JD said, why don't the cops just fucking check first? They know this an issue.

Well you are right, but you can never fix a problem with harsher penalties. It would help if the US would actually apply it's broken laws to instances like this to begin with... but as usual the cop will get away with zero charges or consequences and the swatter will be getting a slap on the wrist.

Meanwhile in Germany I feel more secure just by seeing police standing around in public spaces. Feels good not to live in a state where essentially a civil war is raging.

the problem with police is that they're not really serious about 'protect and serve.' it should really say, '...ourselves first, then the community.' too many of them still treat everyone as criminals and ask questions later.


I like the motto the LSPD have on their cars in GTA 5. "Obey & Survive" Except in real life it's "Obey & Maybe Survive"

It's a cycle. Our politicians stoke fear and paranoia. Citizens then elect them into power. The politicians then militarize the police in order to "protect" citizens from the scary terrorists, pedophiles and mass shooters. Police are trained in military tactics with military weapons. Suddenly every call and every traffic stop is a "life or death" situation where officers have their hands on their guns and are ready to fire at the slightest movement. Those in power should be held accountable for this nonsense. Violent crime is at record lows, but if you listened to certain politicians, we should all be hunkered down in our doomsday bunkers, ready to shoot whoever knocks on our front doors.

That swatting story is so fucked up. Supposedly, a dispute between two Call of Doody nerds over like $2.00 started this. The guy who died wasn't even involved, swat-tard gave the wrong address or something.

Get rid of SWAT teams. Implement sane responses to anonymous phone reports. Charge swatters with the same thing you charge people with when they try to hire a hitman.

A simple phone call to the residents could have prevented this senseless tragedy. It's outrageous.

yes this would result in more cop fatalities, but that's sorta the point of their job - protect the public, even from the police, at the risk of their own lives. what's really sad is that probably nothing will happen to the cop because they'll blame the caller even though objectively, the police murdered an innocent man in his own home.

about the incident itself: the dude that called the swat in supposedly posted on twitter (before deleting) that he's not responsible because he's not the one that pulled the trigger. fucking sociopath punk kids.

Child porn law goes nuts: 14-year-old girl charged for nude selfie.

Makes sense.

Seriously, we need a change in the law to address this. Education, not govn't child pr0n charges, need to be the solution here.

The officer will not go to jail, but there will be a lawsuit and probably a settlement for a couple mil.

Taxpayers paying the price for lack of police training.
