  1. amendment 5:

    > No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, **nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law**; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

  2. It’s not the cop’s job to deal out punishment — that’s the job for the justice system. Cops are supposed to apprehend, collect information/evidence for investigations, and file initial charges.

    Now, I can see how cops may have to defend themselves sometimes, but they should be held up to the same scrutiny that an armed citizen would. A lot of cops get away with shootings that would put any armed citizen behind bars, and that’s a crying shame.

  3. Even if you commit a crime, you are innocent until an elected official (judge) and a jury of that persons peers decide otherwise.

    A dbag with a highschool diploma and 3 months of training does NOT have the authority to sentence you to death.

  4. This is what some people dont seem to understand. A person could have murdered an entire shool and the surrender and that would not justify the police killing him/her. The sentence is decided by the judge, not the cop.

  5. Don’t be fooled. They love the fact an unarmed black man was shot 7 times. Gives them an excuse to dress up in tactical gear and Hawaiian shirts, grab their AR-15s, and go stir shit up in other peoples cities.

  6. And once again, when people ask how things like the Holocaust and corrupt 3rd world countries happen, we only need to look at some of these comments. Apparently they’re fine with the death penalty being given to those who may or may not have resisted arrest, or committed any sort of crime.

  7. The only case where killing MIGHT BE justified is an active shooter that won’t talk or terrorists. And even these situations can be solved without killing the person in question.

  8. I’ve seen a video from the US where a cop pulls a gun on a man because the cop *thinks* the man shoplifted a pack of candy.

    How does potentially stealing a pack of sweets justify having gun pointed at you?

  9. In the US of A? To me it looks the the opposite it’s supposed to happen. Shoot first, ask questions never. You look funny? Shoot. You walk wrong? Shoot. Wrong eye color? Fucking hell, shoot. Wrong **skin** color? Bring the fucking bazooka.

    Then provide a promotion and a medal to the brave officers who were afraid for their lives.

  10. Agreed. ***Ideally…***
    Lawmakers write laws.
    Police are supposed to apprehend those that break laws.
    Judge/juries decide if guilty and sentence.

    Number two isn’t all three.

  11. The amount of commentators who can’t use common sense to impose limits on a statement is astonishing. That’s how we ended up with captain orange in the White House I guess.

  12. Not an insult I just needed an analogy, and someone who would leave a community bc they’re butt hurt about comments seems to be the kind that would have dainty, fragile, little hands.

  13. Police don’t even have the authority to determine if you committed a crime. They should only handcuff and jail people who they *suspect* of committing a serious enough crime they can’t allow you to stay in public AND use force/lethal force only if it safeguards the general public. If you’re shooting someone just because they are running away after indicating they pose no risk to the public, that’s murder or malicious wounding.

  14. What I’m seeing in the comments is that civilians need to treat cops like they treat us. That means that they should be treated as an immediate existential threat which must be eliminated within seconds of being encountered. Because they are armed. As soon as you see a cop you should immediately order him to the ground and to keep his hands away from his weapon. If not, his life is justifiably forfeit.

  15. On that note I also have a bone to pick with the people at r/justiceserved.

    A guy getting the piss beaten out of him for trying to steal a chocolate bar is not justice. That’s assault. Violent crimes deserve violent consequences. Not petty theft.

  16. Insane to think people justification for Jacob Blake getting shot was because he was a rapist. Even if that is the case he is a shit human being for doing it(if he did). That does not give the right for the cops to paralyze him like they did with fucking kids in the car.
