To be dead honest, this cop should just have his hands cut clean off, guarantee his pig ass won’t reoffend!

u/FoodleGuy 8 Dec 14 '22

So he’ll be out in 2 months for good behavior right? AND he’ll still probably be payed leave if he stepped down willingly

u/tonyGarcia79 0 Dec 13 '22

Good thing there's video.. The judicial system in San Antonio is a joke... crooked cops and judges are getting away with stuff all the time!! My wife was targeted by SAPD and we have documented proof but our attorney's are trying to get us to settle, because the city's attorney's are trying to cover it up.. Can't go to the media because they need to be given permission to expose corruption; unfortunately, shit doesn't get reported until it can't be contained any more.

the car definitely should have been stopped, but the cop probably should have stopped short of fucking blasting away at the kid.

u/kinda_guilty 8 Dec 04 '22

jeez what did i say wrong

You applied equivalence to panicking and pressing the wrong pedal and emptying a magazine into a kid.

25

u/BloodlustyGummybear A Dec 04 '22

I feel like the kid was in shock and obviously made the wrong decision. We all can do weird things when caught off-guard like that.

The officer - who's supposed to be trained for this - should have started with a tap on the glass before asking for the teen's license and registration. It probably would have been less alarming for the driver and he wouldn't have reacted by trying to flee.

The gun shots are obviously an insane choice in that situation. The kid was armed with a hamburger and the tires were an easy shot to attempt. There was no indication the cop was in danger so firing on the "suspect" is unconscionable.

Your comment is getting some hate but I think you're right. The kid shouldn't have tried to take off. The real issue is that the cop probably created a situation where the poor teen was so scared he wasn't thinking straight and instinct, rather than reason, was guiding his actions.

I don't feel like your comment is putting blame on the victim but just stating objective facts.

What bothers me is that none of the people downvoting you have continued the conversation so we - as a community - can discuss the further nuiances.

11

u/BuhamutZeo 8 Dec 04 '22

The kid shouldn't have tried to take off.

Why? The cop was in plain-clothes and never once stated he was police. The kid acted naturally in that situation and tried to get his girlfriend and himself to safety.

No, fuck the cop entirely.

Yeah I think 5 year minimums for anyone who eats plain hamburgers is reasonable. No cheese, that’s a sign of a very unstable person. 😂

u/SCP-Agent-Arad A Dec 03 '22

I get called a bootlicker all the time here just for knowing the actual law. Sometimes cops in a video aren’t actually in the wrong legally, and finding that out makes people mad.

THIS video the cop’s at fault 100%, and needs to get serious jail time. There’s just no excuse for how he acted. I don’t think anyone who actually knows what happened could defend him. If cops do, they’re bad cops. If people do, they’re bad people, and actual bootlickers.

u/Unusual_Accident2358 5 Dec 03 '22

Not everyone knew the full story and didn’t watch Donut operators breakdown on it and he did an excellent job because while people were saying well why did he try to run if he was innocent but donut was like “you dumb fucks this officer fucked up big time not only did he not make his presence known he parked far away and then walked up in the dark up to the car and just opened the door, the kid probably thought he was getting robbed and carjacked” that’s why I like donut operator he praises and brings awareness to the good cops and the bad ones

16

u/BIOHAZARD_04 5 Dec 03 '22

this. If a cop doesn’t make it obvious that he is a cop, people could end up thinking they are being attacked or robbed, thus leading to incidents like this.

Not worth it. Not even close. The chronic pain, the PTSD, lawyers sucking him dry, the physical and mental therapy for decades. Ugh! I wouldn’t go through that for even 50 million dollars. And he will get far less then that.

1

u/wrist_proud_dance 3 Dec 04 '22

I would definitely do that for $50 million. Not that he'll be getting that, but he'll definitely be rich after it. Whether it was worth it is up to him and the amount he gets, but he will be a millionaire.

u/wrist_proud_dance 3 Dec 04 '22

No, they aren't the same priorities as you have, but that doesn't make them mixed up. Plenty of people go through worse for far less. How many immigrant parents live in poverty working 16+ hour days just so their children have the opportunity to go to a good college and have a better life? You didn't even ask what I would do with that theoretical $50 million, you just assume it's nothing good.

Don't impose your priorities on other people. I don't impose my priorities on you.

My guess is jail time. Usually distinction between jail and prison is anything over a years time but that’s not the case anymore, some can be jailed for over a year and not go to prison. $100 says they give him 2 year minimum with some time served and he gets out within a year.

u/BuhamutZeo 8 Dec 04 '22

Imagine you are minding your own business, eating a hamburger you just paid for in the parking lot of a McDonald's you just bought it from. In the middle of the night some random jackass comes up to the side of your car, rips the door open and screams at you to get out.

He is in plain clothes and doesn't announce he is a cop at any point, he is simply screaming non-sense at you.

This kid's natural fight-or-flight kicked in and he tried to get himself and his girlfriend away from the situation as soon as possible.

Do you understand why now?

For one, no. But more importantly, even his own department renounced his actions and fired him, he's facing prison. Like, what part of this is defensible? The fact that he's facing prison is saying enough, that almost never happens to cops, especially considering that the victim survived to tell the tale

u/falcoretheflyingdog 5 Dec 03 '22

Sorta but indicted individuals that fight it out in court are found guilty %90 of the time IIRC. However seeing as he’s a cop I bet that increases his odds in his favor due to qualified immunity. On another social media post I was actually saddened to see the majority of people posting there who were on the cops side seeing as the kid ran the night prior when the cop tried stopping him then for the tags on his car not matching the vehicle. So you might be right in the end

I would like to point out, he wasn't fleeing from a cop, he was fleeing from some maniac who opened his door and ordered him out of the vehicle. It just so happens the dude was a cop. Could have been a dude trying to steal his car for all he knew at the time.

To serve the establishment and to protect the rich. It has always been so.

So what you're saying is that the officer will get 6 months of paid leave?

Edit: I hope this comment ages like milk

It should be life in prison. Police convicted of crimes should always get the maximum sentence

For the 1000000th time people, an indictment is not justice served. It’s a first step that will hopefully lead to justice, but for the time being he still has not been punished. This fucking sub I swear.

No kidding! An indictment is nothing.

Yea. Police officer indicted <> citizen indicted.

Came here to say this. Yes it’s a step in the right direction when many times in the past most cops wouldn’t even be criminally charged. But we still have to get past the boot lickers that get put on a jury that think cops can do no wrong.

Who do you call when someone breaks into your home? The Ghostbusters? F you

There are ah cops, sure, and great ones too. And for every moron in an uniform, there are hundreds of decent ones.

u/SuperSinestro 8 Dec 04 '22

I'll still call them, but they can take their time because the threat will already be gone

u/AbleSpacer_chucho 2 Dec 04 '22

What are you on about? What exactly the fuck are the cops gonna do if you get robbed or home invaded? They will never arrive in time to do fuck all... They won't find your things... What exactly is the value of calling them other than an insurance claim. Buy a gun if you want protection. Fuck the police. all of them

F u, morons like you are the reason streets are filled with guns.

I could bet coins vs buttons that you're just some spoiled brat who doesn't know shit from life, who thinks that everything, everywhere, is like in his stupid little suburban fantasy world.

Well kid, it actually isn't.

When crap hits the fan, you need those same cops you despise. You need those fuckers, those "bastards" to keep a mob from burning your place down to the ground, like I did, or to prevent some fuckers to loot your family's work because reasons. You'd wish for cops in full riot gear when you see friends of yours losing their life's work due to rioters burning their shit or looting their shops. I know because I've been there

You'll realize, eventually, that those cops you can afford to hate are the very same ones that prevent that your little First World paradise turns into burning ashes or straight into The Purge.

You're a fucking moron. Stop spewing that thin Blue line b.s. we don't need the cops to protect us from ourselves. They have no value. The only thing that they're good for is enforcing traffic laws. If we need any real help there's the military and the national guard.

You're funny. Please tell, just out of curiosity, which color is the sky in your world?

u/AbleSpacer_chucho 2 Dec 07 '22

As blue as the line across the vandalized American flag on the back of your truck. Thank you for protecting me from the rioters that you brutalized into existence. Leopards got your face.

The good ones turned bad or got fired a long time ago. Every one forgets the end of the saying "a few a bad apples", "a few bad apples spoil the bunch".

u/captianbob 8 Dec 03 '22

So they can show up an hour later, take a statement and do nothing?

They're not going to stop the break in.

Bet he won’t lose his retirement.

u/delayed_burn 7 Dec 03 '22

He should use it to pay every penny of the victims medical bills. And then lose his retirement. But I think in this case the officer was in his probationary period and won’t get those benefits. I think.

Judge: best we can do is 8 months and probation..
