    George Floyd seemed to strike a different chord. It was in front of us immediately, from numerous angles, on multiple stations, all over the internet. It was seen differently. I don't know of anyone that sided with the police on this or that didn't feel the police were responsible fo his death. It was being discussed sympathetically by everyone. Reasonable change would have been easier to get. You don't reach points on time like this all that often.

    Then the BLMers blew all that support with all the street trash we had to see over and over. Then these ridiculous graffiti er murals all over city streets. They lost a lot of what they had by taking it way too far. They lost the notion of defunding the police (whatever that meant) to proving to decent people that we really need is more police.

    Not all that bright of a move. But just keep on marchin' and screamin'
    Didn't seem to have struck you very much. You've gone from whatever your opinion was to "who cares" in less than 4 months.

    Different officer. You can spray in the direction you got shot at

    Sorry I misspoke. I don't know which bullets hit her.

    Thanks. You are right I guess. I retired a little over a year ago. The last time I hurt my ankle I decided I was done playing competitively/regularly. I did make it into my 40s.

    It shouldn't be a partisan question but the majority of conservatives, both on here and IRL, seem to think that the police officer shouldn't have been charged. Just pointing out where they draw the line.

    Do you think he should have been charged with her death?

    I think they all should have faced more charges. The officer that got the wanton endangerment charge, from what I read, was the third to even fire, so if so it would seem incorrect to pin her death JUST on him. Whether those should be murder charges, I don't know...but for the only charges to be the weak one he got doesn't seem just.

    I also find it interesting that he was fired back when this happened while the other 2 were put on desk duty. I don't know what they knew then, prior to the investigation, that separated him.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I only thought it was the one officer who shot her but I agree wholeheartedly. The fact they indicted one officer for carelessly shooting a wall and no one was indicted for carelessly shooting an innocent unarmed woman in her own home is dumbfounding.

    I figured an indictment of Manslaughter or Negligence causing death would have been fair

    Depending on how much we are to believe the AG, who FWIW is a black man, I heard him say when they breached the door they found Taylor and Walker standing in a hallway, Walker pointing a gun. He shot, Officer 1 was struck in the thigh, Officer 1 fired 6 times, Officer 2 fired 16 times, Officer 3 shot 10 times...all somehow through the same doorway. 1 and 2 were reassigned to admin duties soon after while 3 was fired, so even then they saw differences for whatever reason (and I believe Officer 1 was the higher rank).

    There's just things that don't add up really. 32 total shots fired by officers, 8 struck Breona while none apparently struck Walker...the one with the gun. He was arrested, originally charged, but released with charges dropped. Exactly how are 32 shots fired down a hallway 2 people are standing in and the only one hit is the one not holding a gun?!

    Then there's the question of whether Walker fired AT the officers or fired into the floor as a warning and the bullet ricocheted into the officer...which may be why his charges were dropped, I don't know.

    Regardless, at the VERY least I don't see how all 3 don't face reckless endangerment or criminal negligence charges if not manslaughter. Murder I don't see, however.

    Do you care yet? Still no? I figured.
    not true. I have before said there were shootings that were wrong. I even said in this thread about Breonna Taylor "there should have been more charges" and you didn't bother to reply to that.

    too many people are not getting the right information. this is the media's fault.

This country gives a ****ton of thoughts and prayers after every shooting by both random people and police. Weíre perfectly content with our fellow citizens being killed by one another. Itís expected behavior and we donít care enough to do a damn thing.
