I wish them long lives of misery behind bars.

Good. Hopefully justice prevails and he is actually tried and convicted.
Grand Rapids officer charged with second-degree murder in shooting of Patrick Lyoya, prosecutor says

A Grand Rapids Police police officer was charged Thursday with one count of second-degree murder in the death of Patrick Lyoya, who was shot in the back of the head during a struggle after an April traffic stop, a Michigan prosecutor said.

Lyoya, a Black man, was shot to death on April 4 by officer Christopher Schurr, a White officer trying to arrest him after a traffic stop in a case that has drawn national attention. Lyoya's final moments were captured in multiple videos later released to the public.
"This is not a message. This is just based on the facts and making a decision in this case," Kent County Prosecuting Attorney Christopher Becker told reporters Thursday, referring to the charge.

(Discovery of unserved warrant renews family's call for justice for Emmett Till)

Quote:
The family of Emmett Till is calling for justice. Nearly 70 years ago, the Black 14-year-old's murder helped spur the civil rights movement in America. His family recently discovered an unserved arrest warrant for his accuser, who is still alive today. They hope it can lead to her arrest. CNN's Sara Sidner has more.

Quote:
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to 21 years in a federal prison for violating George Floyd's civil rights. Chauvin, who pleaded guilty in December, will also be required to pay restitution. 

During the sentencing, U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson said that Chauvin "must be held responsible" for his actions, including destroying the lives of the other three officers involved in Floyd's death.

"I really don't know why you did what you did," the judge said. "To put your knee on a person's neck until they expired is simply wrong. … Your conduct is wrong and it is offensive."

Chauvin's plea deal, which Magnuson accepted in May, called for a sentence of 20 to 25 years. Magnuson shaved seven months off of the 21-year sentence for time already served —
last year, Chauvin was convicted in a state court on murder and manslaughter charges related to Floyd's May 2020 death and sentenced to 22 1/2 years. He will serve the state and federal sentences concurrently in a federal prison.

Chauvin could be out in 15 years. I wish the sentences had to be served consecutively. He will serve the state and federal sentences concurrently in federal prison.

Where is the truth? Mother of Twins who suffered from Schizophrenia gets arrested at her home and she dies enroute to the police station by falling out of the cruiser/they murder her? Criminally Negligent Homicide?

Are these police cruisers from the early 70's? Nothing to tell them the back door is OPEN?



Georgia police didn't close patrol car door before handcuffed woman fell out and later died, investigators say

Deputies in Georgia never closed a patrol car door after putting a 28-year-old handcuffed woman in the back seat during an arrest earlier this month, authorities said Wednesday. That woman, Brianna Marie Grier, fell out of the car while it was moving and died days later from her injuries, according to police. 

Grier was arrested at a home in Sparta, Georgia, on July 15, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) said last week. She was put into the patrol car and was being driven to the Hancock County Sheriff's Office when she fell out of the patrol car and suffered "significant injuries," the GBI said at the time.

She died of those injuries six days later, the GBI said. It's unclear why she was initially taken into custody.

Grier’s parents called police, saying that their daughter was having a schizophrenic crisis. They wanted paramedics to come assist her, as they had done previously. However, when sheriff’s deputies went to their home they claimed Grier had alcohol on her breath.

She said that she had been drinking and was put in handcuffs, escorted into a patrol car and detained for intoxication, her father Marvin Grier said. Grier soon died in police custody. She leaves behind a set of 3-year-old twin girls.

Her father wants answers. “We need to know what happened to our daughter,” he told The Washington Post Friday. “If we had known it was going to end up this way, we would have let her stay here.”

On the morning of July 15, police told Grier’s mother that her daughter had allegedly “kicked the back door in and jumped out” of the patrol car. Grier’s father said police told them she had suffered a head injury and had been taken to the hospital. However, this just doesn’t add up.

“Everybody knows that no one can just kick a door open on a police cruiser. I never heard nobody else say it had happened,” Grier’s father said to The Washington Post. “And with her hands behind her back? Something’s not right here.”

What's troubling to me is so many of these occurances seem to happen to Black people.

Four current, former Louisville police officers federally charged in Breonna Taylor's death

Four current and former Louisville police officers involved in the deadly raid on Breonna Taylor's home -- including detectives who worked on the search warrant and the ex-officer accused of firing blindly into her home -- have been charged with civil rights violations and other counts, Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday.

The charges mark the first federal counts leveled against any of the officers involved in the botched raid. In addition to civil rights offenses, federal authorities charged the four with unlawful conspiracies, unconstitutional use of force and obstruction, Garland said.
