This Cop Is Getting $2,500 a Month Because Killing an Unarmed Man in a Hotel Hallway Gave Him PTSD

"An Arizona cop acquitted of murder in 2017 for killing a man crawling on his knees, begging for his life, in a hotel hallway, was temporarily rehired by the city he worked for so that he could claim a disability pension and file for a medical retirement that will pay him more than $2,500 a month for the rest of his life"

3. He's not a cop. He's a murdering psycho who made it onto the police force.

13. With "YOU'RE FUCKED" engraved into his AR, he was already half there.


Two words stick in my mind when I think of the video of Daniel Shaver begging for his life before he was shot and killed by Officer Philip Brailsford of the Police Department in Mesa, Arizona. The two words were written on the dust cover of the AR-15 rifle Braisford used to kill Shaver:

“You’re fucked.”

He made the dude crawl for a while. Issuing commands and when the guy tried to pull his pants up after dragging himself down the hall the fucker shot him right in front of his wife/girlfriend.

6. Pretty f'n dumb to reach for your waistband when LEOs have firearms trained on you

Try it sometime. Let us know how it works out for you. Or maybe your estate will.

7. Well, when they are playing fucking Simon Says with your life, you might make a mistake.

And you'll die.
And someone will say you were dumb.

10. Police are trained (with your tax dollars) to play Simon Says

and assertively take control of a situation. When they arrive at the scene they have no idea if it's just some innocent dude (like this guy apparently was) or some anti-cop meth-head or whatever. When he reached for his waistband they have no idea what his intent is. Guilty people pretend they're innocent all of the time.

The guy was acquitted after a jury took all facts and evidence under consideration.

11. Hands up!! Don't put your hands up! !

Hands behind your back!!
Hands where I can see them!!
On the ground!! On your knees!!
If you do something I didn't tell.you to do you will be shot! !!
Crawl!! Let me see your hands!!
Do as I say or you will be shot!!

Did you see the video? The cop knows what he did was wrong.

12. "When they arrive at the scene they have no idea...."

I'm not sure when that attitude (or training) crept into police protocols. I shudder when the body cam footage includes an officer stating 'I don't know if you are not a bad guy, so do ___ and ___ to prove it to me..."

As if it is the responsibility of everyone on scene to prove to the arriving officers that they are harmless, docile creatures, or risk getting filled up with bullets.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Being a cop means using instinct and experience to separate the truly dangerous situations from the ones that sound really bad over the radio, but are just over-reaction from a 911 caller.

15. This website is not part of the justice system.

Events such as this can be discussed after a jury does their work.

16. So was O.J.

Sadly, way too many cops are school yard bullies grown to adulthood. I think we would be safer without cops and armed ourselves as it is not their responsibility to protect citizens. A sorry waste of tax payer dollars.

9. I do believe I posted a OP on this. If I remember when I get to the foreign desk, I'll see

if I can find it.

Curious as to our resident "po-po's" responses....
