Fucker Carlson needs to be fired
Behold the LORD maketh the earth empty, and layeth it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
The gun is on your right side, the taser on the left. The taser is bright yellow, the gun is a dark metal color. 26 years on the force and she doesn't know the difference? This is modern day lynching.
My relative was victim of the blood clot thing but from Astra Zeneca vaccine. It to do with specific type of blood disorder that relates to multiple myeloma particularly
Hope he gets deported to California and charged with more charges
Replacement theory has led to mass shootings and murders. So they are right to get upset about it
I know 2 people from my youth that became police officers , they where both loud mouth bullies in school who loved to intimidate other people . Niether should be officers today as they have not changed one bit . Sums up the American police force – Power tripping bullies . Misstake a taser from a glock ? No excuse , No gun was needed to be drawn in this situatiion . My heart goes out to the family .
What's her loud "Yes!" about after she says "I just shot him."?
Women should not be on the front line duties. They need to be office based.
Hi. If I were a citizen of the United States, I would not have the intention of replacing anyone – my life, my decisions. The new citizens are sagacious and not obedient in front to the greed ($*) and racism.
Happy birthday Amy! I am so grateful for your reporting.
boys that have taken female hormones in high school are not women…this insults women…we are more than our hormones…this is just patriarchy
On Police shooting of Black Men, accidentally, & “pretext stops” by Police in MN:
“Ms. Potter, 48, had served on the force for 26 years and was training other officers when they pulled Mr. Wright’s car over on Sunday afternoon, saying he had an expired registration on his car and something hanging from his rearview mirror. When officers discovered that Mr. Wright had a warrant out for his arrest and tried to arrest him, he twisted away and got back into his car.”
– NY Times
When people say that you can’t mistake a gun for a taser, they may not have considered the nervous effects on a person(woman) who is showing (training) some guys on how to do a traffic stop, & then combined with *(racist) “Implicit Bias”*, causing panic in the presence of black males, meanwhile:
Pretext Stops by Police, from MinnPost:
On Pretext Stops~
“Twenty years ago, the Minnesota Supreme Court articulated serious concerns about traffic stops and potential racial bias after the Whren decision. We now have more research on how implicit bias can impact perceptions, even by the most well-intentioned police officers. And we have data revealing large racial disparities in traffic stops by the Minneapolis Police Department.
Reducing racial disparities in traffic stops in Minnesota is more critical now than ever before. The police are struggling to build relationships with black community members. Philando Castile’s shooting, after a pretext stop, should be a tragic reminder that these interactions are not a minor inconvenience for black drivers.
*These reasons alone should make our courts interpret our state Constitution to provide greater protection under the Fourth Amendment by banning the use of pretext stops by law enforcement in this state.”*
No vaccine has 90% covid. Vaccine Only suppress SYMPTOMS OF COVID. you need to correct the statement
That female officer reacted without self-restraint or any sort of self-control over her own emotional state. The guy was UNARMED and showing no signs of aggression!!! With 24 years behind her as a cop, you would think she would've reacted much differently. NOPE. This goes to show, yet again, how the police as a whole, are sorely and irretrievably ill-equipped (psychologically) and inept. We don't need em!!! There are many, many ways to deal with people. Vastly superior ways than conventional state violence against the citizens it claims to protect. The irony of it is disgusting.
I just want to say that Tucker Carlson used both the words "literally" and "hysterical" incorrectly. Literally hysterical means that your womb is physically traveling all around your body.
Where is the threat to even use a Taser?
He should not have resisted and tried to flee,, that we all know for sure.
