Fresh of a mass shooting of their very own*, I thought the Denver PD might quiet down a bit. Wrong. The name of their game is continuous malfeasance.
IDK which upsets me more-- “like father like son” or that they were getting $90/hr to basically do nothing even if they showed up.
*I was encouraged by the local hedge-fund-owned Denver Post’s reporting on DPD shooting into a crowd. It’s paywalled, or I’d share. Their headlines made it clear who shot innocent bystanders. One example:
" Denver police shooting in LoDo caused most injuries of any Colorado police shooting since at least 2010. Officers injured five bystanders while shooting man they say pointed gun at police
“Denver police shooting of armed man and 6 bystanders was unnecessary and unreasonable, defense attorney says”
DPD refuses to release body cam or Halo camera footage, this after CO Dems allowed a bill encrypting all their communication. Accountability gone.
this day just gets better!
hope i didn’t just jinx it, but damn, my schadenfreude is
Were they really worried about what Chauvin, a restrained prisoner, would do to the officers, or were they worried about Chavuin’s safety? Knowing what white guards have done to Black prisoners.
This is the heart of white panic. They know how they have treated minority populations when in a position of power, and cannot imagine that it would be different if they were the minority population. White supremacy is just white cowardice.
