Cops Admit To Planting Marijuana
92 Year Old Woman Killed in Botched Drug Raid.
Just think, you survived 92 years just to have your life cut short by the people who vowed to "serve and protect"---Cops.
This is a travesty on the American way of life.
Cops admitted to all of the above.
Is this an indication of what and how far a person, especially a cop, will go to cover what could have been a minor mistake?
Is this an isolated incident?
Do Cops see who or what before they shoot?
Do Cops know the word, "cease fire"?
Do Cops need more training and better leadership?
Do Cops just act on snitching?
Where is the investigation or was it premeditated?
Are Cops worse than the criminals they chase daily?
Are our police forces mainly made up of incompetent trash?
Two police officers pleaded guilty Thursday to manslaughter in the shooting death of a 92-year-old woman during a botched drug raid last fall. A third officer still faces charges.
The charges followed a Nov. 21 "no-knock" drug raid on the home of Kathryn Johnston, 92. An informant had described buying drugs from a dealer there, police said. When the officers burst in without warning, Johnston fired at them, and they fired back, killing her.
Fulton County prosecutor Peter Johnson said that the officers involved in Johnston's death fired 39 shots, striking her five or six times, including a fatal blow to the chest.
He said Johnston fired only once through her door and didn't hit any of the officers. That means the officers who were wounded likely were hit by their own colleagues, he said.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Yonette Sam-Buchanan said Thursday that although the officers found no drugs in Johnston's home, Smith planted three bags of marijuana in the home as part of a cover story.
The case raised serious questions about no-knock warrants and whether the officers followed proper procedures.
The Officer Code of conduct
A mistake is one thing. Blatant disregard for law and life, on behalf of an officer is another. Stupidity is another and this level of crime and corruption from officers of the law, indicates serious illness. It ranks right up there with lynching or raping, robbing and murdering old ladies. They raped and robbed her of life.
This incident has to be an indicator of an even greater problem. For this group of officers to even think and then carry out such an evil act is a sign of poor leadership.
Police abuse is one thing but when it comes to shooting old ladies, being wounded by friendly fire and failing to render medical help is a sure sign that these cops sick and the system is in great need of repair. Plain and simple, it is an irresponsible, disgraceful and an unacceptable act.
Just the thought of knowing there are people like this, authorized to use deadly force to enforce the law, is scary and an indication of much needed training and ethics. Who would want to call any officer of the law when this kind of behavior is being demonstrated.
At one time, I thought cop killing was a travesty but, this incident has taken the cake. Just may be, many were justified and more need to be removed.
Are we progressing or are we going backwards?
This could be ones worse nightmare. Mafia type behavior.
