Basis for Case in Brooklyn Police Shooting: No Threat Led Officer to Fire

“The indictment of Officer Peter Liang, who killed an unarmed man, differs from other police shootings because he did not claim he was acting against a threat and therefore can’t claim he was using legitimate force.”

Officer Liang claimed his gun went off accidentally. Will this fly with a New York grand jury in hte face of outrage two times over in recent police killings of black men? I hope not. At some point, the people must receive their measure of justice. The continued pardoning of officers who kill unarmed civillians by grand juries throughout the nation has become a stain on the criminal justice system and a telegraphing to police around the nation that there will be no consequences for the act of killing civillians. Such “justice” cannot stand. The civil rights of the people must always triumph. It isn’t just activists rising up.

will a grand jury finally indict a police officer?

As we saw in Ferguson, the people are sick and tired of this, and will rise up and take to the streets in protest. We will watch with great interest to see what fate befalls officer Liang.

This is yet another reason that as changing times and changing technology dictates, we need cameras on police officers less the ever-encroaching police state grow nearer to reality. Sanctions are needed.

  1. The FBI has lots of exonerating evidence o n Barrett Brown. He was only helping. I was in that chat room. Shit, the only one ever. We are only in bed, FBI.

  2. I’m having a radicalization metaphor. let me try to play it off. Say, Andy, scoff. The whole south of the USA is run by white supremacists. Oh, I do believe your hotshot labs were just washed out by Radly Balko. Of course, back in 1995, your employee Hurst first cracks the veneer in the OJ Simpson trial.

  3. Frederic Whitehurst was a Supervisory Special Agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation Laboratory from 1986 to 1998, where he went public as a whistleblower to bring attention to procedural errors and misconduct.
