How Convenient… This way a “person”(Later id’ as Tyler Barriss), who is truly an idiot. Will pay for this. Then the Innocent, fooled, Incompetent Whichita Police department can keep taking cool pictures of themselves. AND TAKE ZERO RESPONSABILIY. Typical of a bunch of animals in a badge. The video shows the rifle at left of officers camera take shot. Not threatened IN ANY WAY. This Deputy Chief is a “TOOL”! This cannot go on without Internal Police repercussions. Otherwise “We the People” of the United States of America are living in a Police State. Let’s fix ours, before we mandate International Policies, and dictate to others how we have it so much better. This, Philandro Castille, Eric Gardner, Oscar Grant… Has to Stop. Or LEO held accountable in Court of Law. “Law & Justice” did not occur here. It doesn’t appear this This Deputy Chief never apologized to the family, oe even acknowledged THEIR error. The Family has to resort to GoFundMe to bury their hero. This was an INNOCENT Man. The Law Enforcement Training is to protect public, if any claim as to threat of officers as a defense. To what? This is a BIG TIME FAIL.
I am just tired of the same ‘ol excuses. Admitting they totally F@%#$d Up… Would be the Truth.
This is a case where the BLM movement should be involved… If this is allowed, without criminal prosecution of that Police Force… No one is safe, and this Country is not safe for anyone. It is now a Police State. This is because Andrew Finch was convicted before LEO did their job to protect innocent Public. That m-16, at that distance was the most “cowardly act”…
How scared must 1 be with an m-16 in hand? This in justice is everything BLM is fighting for. Law Enforcement placed in Situations where they come first… That assumption should be taken off the table.
The Public comes First. The very people Police claim they are to protect comes First… You do not kill unarmed individuals. The Public has right to go home first before LEO.
Do not take the job as the pay is great. Be prepared to make sure that cigarette lighter is not a gun before you shoot. If you shoot and it is NOT a gun… There is no… I thought… My life.., Other ARMED officers in danger. That excuse should not be allowed… ever.
Law Enforcement must always meet that Higher Standard… Performance as this Witchita Police Department has shown is unacceptable. And should be deemed criminal.
