A lot of Americans feel that the government is working against them. Here is a stark example of why. A cop panics and fires his gun (then calls for backup: “Shots fired!”). He is eventually, temporarily, disarmed by another officer. Who is charged here, and with what? The man lying unarmed on the ground is charged, with upsetting the cop. The video is about 10 minutes long. Here.
As an aside, a win for body cameras. That was part of my 2016 platform.
UPDATE 16 Nov: Mullinax was acquitted by a jury yesterday.
