    The Louisville’s case.

    You are asleep at home. You have nothing to fear you are a good person who doesn't break the law.
    When
    Men kick your door in all armed with guns.
    You have a fraction of a second to see all this in your startled state and grab your firearm to defend yourself against a home invasion.
    The trained professionals see you go for a gun and shoot you dead.
    All this in 1-2 second.Given this same situation I'd be dead too just like that young lady.

    Police can say they were defending themselves because she went for a gun. But tell me you wouldn't have done the same as her in that situation.

    Cops guilty or not guilty? This is a hard one. They did what they were trained to do. Bad policy leads to bad outcomes.

    No knock warrants should be very very rare.

    That is unpatriotic to take knee during the national anthem. I don't care what race color or creed you happen to be. Stand your ### up put your hand over your heart and show some respect. If you want to protest find some other way to do it. What happened to George Floyd was murder , and the piece of excrement that did it, will pay for it. I don't believe it has as much to do with race as you think. People of all colors are dying at the hands of cops. I think it's mainly because of the crappy training.Todays officers have been trained as law enforcement instead of peace officers.

    Does this mean I can riot the next time a receiver takes five hours to unload me.

    She didn’t grab for a gun,she was laying on a couch when she got hit! Her boyfriend grabbed the gun because he thought the house was being broken into by intruders and he fired(castle doctrine).They fired back hitting her at least 8 times!
    The boyfriend had a legally registered firearm AND he was legally registered to possess one.
    Yet they’re charging him with attempted murder of a police officer when he was trying to defend their home.
    What’s even more maddening is the fact that the no knock warrant they were serving the person to WASN’T EVEN AT THE HOUSE-HE WAS ALREADY ARRESTED and IN POLICE CUSTODY!!

    FBI investigates Breonna Taylor shooting as Louisville police chief announces retirement
    Because of LMPD’s incompetence a 26 year old EMT is dead!

    I know this case but I was thinking of another where the boyfriend was outside with police.
    Scary that there are multiple similar cases.
    This should not be happening.

    This is why most law enforcement agencies don’t do no-knock warrants-because too much s*** can go wrong-which in this case is a worst case scenario!!

    If you think America is the only place in the world where prejudices exist then you need to get out to the world more. Give me a country or society where prejudice does not exist. We are all different but when terms like POC is being used by so called enlightened people to describe others then you will get nothing but a laugh from me.

    Kind of hard to do any world traveling with the other crisis still in full swing. Couldn't pay me a million dollars to get onto one of those Greyhound buses of the skies. I'll stick to my beliefs, but I'm not going to go anywhere near these spots of unrest either. The further I keep myself in the country-side, the better. Regardless of my race, crowds have always made me vomit.
