What are you talking about Dicky ? If she was off duty and killed him with a car accident she would have gotten the same charge. She’s lucky they didn’t charge her appropriately for the compounding of her incompetency with her panic.

Wrong. Not if it was determined to be a tragic accident. That’s the purpose of due process.

You make a good salary 1200 to 1500 per week standing on the corner of 42nd St. and 5th Ave in New York with a mattress strapped to your back and a coin changer on your belt, okay, Sparky? Get the hell out–it’s 2021. No one’s buyin’ your idiot shtick.

Very sad that the police keep getting thrown under the bus for what criminals do. It is very bad that she mistook a taser for a gun, with her years on the force she should not have made that mistake.

Racist microcephalic…it was a MISTAKE, PERIOD. Key word (and YOU used it: ACCIDENT) End of story. NO manslaughter involved, whatsoever. She thought she had her taser in her hand WITHOUT A DOUBT. She MUST be exonerated. Little thug takin’ a dirt nap.

I agree. It was an accident. But of course, if a cop looks crooked at a black person, it’s always the fault of a “racist” cop. It was not good though, that she shot before seeing what was in her hand.

She is a police officer so she is representing the law so she should not be treated like a civilian
yes she should off duty
making a mistake should cost her job but not jail time

You got to look at the whole thing, and not just your opinion that apparently creates a scenario that doesn’t exist.
Looking at the political side of it, also you don’t mention. He was wanted on a warrant, and he chose to flee.

Such incidents should be object lessons for people who think running from cops is a viable option. The officers were responding to a call about someone with a gun. They weren’t trying to get a cat out of a tree. These Parking Lot Perry Masons project their perspectives in hindsight. In the heat of battle, when a possible threat of being shot by criminals looms within such scenarios, they probably would pee their pants and beg for mercy when some perp turns around on them. I’ve been arrested by the police, and stopped many times for driving infractions other activities. I learned quickly that you should not confront or attempt to flee from these officers.

We had something similar occur at SFO. A lesbian firefighter driving a fire truck accidentally ran over an injured female airline passenger who was lying near the wreckage of her flight. The poor girl was killed due to that truck rolling over her. The driver was a black lesbian, so she was virulently defended by the media and her cohorts from any observations of her ineptitude, nor was she subjected to liability and dismissal, for fear of legal proceedings against her detractors.

They will get millions to settle this no matter what, fleeing or what ever. A pack of wrongful death lawyers are smelling the blood on this case already. The Wokers in MN will pay up. Flee MN!

If is was a male officer that did the shooting, he would be charged with 1st degree homicide. So, she shouldn’t be complaining, though I’m sure she will. Its in their nature.

The problem is in modern America those “Caring Folks” can take a non-criminal matter and push it to where they get to kill you, and to often they do, and then just walk away.
Police Killing unarmed people when they were called to help seems part of “Americana” or the American way.
More need to be charged and convicted with at least manslaughter or it will never go away and they will kill even more – because they are allowed.

You should really familiarize yourself with written law. Specifically, Homicide and Manslaughter charges. Learn what constitutes both. Maybe then your posts won’t be discarded as utter BS, and possibly warrant an intelligent conversation.
