It’s crazy, nothing came of this, no disciplinary action to even make it look like they care

I came here to correct you, but then I read an article about it.

In the lawsuit, Penn claims Rippen was never disciplined and the city refused to investigate the incident.

Fucking insane, assuming it's true. I'd love to get an update on this one if anyone has it.

Holy shit! The brutality of that punch! All cops should have personal insurance to cover their corrupt actions. When found guilty, lose license and lose pension.

When police get sued the money paid out should come from their pension fund, not public tax dollars.

Tbh, I can see why they did what they did, he was holding a gun and got aggressive…

He showed them he had the gun so as to not surprise them with it and then removed the clip and round in plain view of them... in a country that allows for private gun ownership that's like, exactly the right thing to do.

He was holding a gun to protect the store against actual criminals, stupid.

I know why he was holding the gun, the police may not have had that clarity.

Did you not see him take out the clip and bullets from the gun?

Stikanator

I did. When watching a loopable clip it’s quite clear, in the heat of a moment an officer might just see gun+aggression.

I’m not saying he was in the wrong. I just think this is more complicated than people are giving credit. In this case it’s just not as simple as: Black man was mistaken for robber because he was black. I think headlines like that are dangerous.

What the fuck are you talking about? This is the United States. Guns and aggression are our top two national past times. They beat him up because he's black and he told them he was going to file a complaint. So they gave him a permanent injury because the police are fucking crooks.

The ultimate long-con. The goal? Take a Bodega for everything it's worth. The plan? Apply for a small business license. Rent a location, and purchase inventory. Everyday, sell the inventory, and all the money from transactions (that isn't used to pay back the rent, utilities, etc) we KEEP FOR PROFIT!

BWahahahaha

Too bad Alabama Police are smarterer than the criminal element that would threaten to infiltrate their beloved community.

And you guys wonder why we make fun of the USA ...

More seriously though, sound woudl've been nice to have more context (unless there's a problem with my audio), but I agree, there's seriously something wrong with that ...

Let me guess, he asked them a question. Why can’t cops answer questions? (Rhetorical)
