excessive complaints

Jurors often want to convict police of violent crime. These Supreme Court rulings stand in the way.

Among the things that can make a police officer seem guilty of criminal misconduct, manslaughter and even murder after a fatal encounter with unarmed subject: a damning video, evidence of racial bias, and prior complaints of excessive force.

But despite this evidence, jurors often can’t convict officers for lethal use of force. Most recently, a jury wasn’t able to convict Betty Shelby, the police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, who fatally shot Terence Crutcher, an unarmed black motorist. 

The father of four was seen in police video with his hands raised, but on May 17 a jury found Shelby not guilty of first-degree manslaughter. Read more. (6/3/17, 11:10 AM)

My brain dies every time i see a Youtube video that says something like “SJW CULTURE IS RUINING MARVEL COMICS” and i just want to die because i see so many of those vids whenever i type in stuff about marvel or Spiderman

because yeah there are legit complaints like; excessive events or filler tie in comics or the over production of too many titles resulting in cancellation or low exposure to other comics.

Constant rebooting of new #1’s mean higher sales but less value for a reader because whats the point in the story and the momentum if they’re just gonna reboot it right?

But saying sjw because of what? Women in protagnist roles? Diversity being promoted? (Although there is the issue of execution, not the principle) like its very telling that a lot of white male fans really seem to hate everyone lol


Terence Crutcher’s death shows the risk of letting problematic officers go back on duty.

Officer Betty Shelby who shot and killed Terence Crutcher had two excessive force complaints filed against her. Those complaints were reportedly ruled as unfounded and she returned to duty.

Shelby’s actions against Crutcher, who had reportedly been stranded with his SUV on a north Tulsa road, have the man’s family, local residents and civil rights activists demanding the officer’s firing and arrest. But more than that, they’re seeking the type of influence civilians have in cities like Chicago, Cleveland and Los Angeles.

(Reuters) - A judge on Friday tossed out an involuntary manslaughter charge against a Detroit police officer who shot and killed a 7-year-old girl during a 2010 police raid.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway was acting on a motion from the defense as the two-week jury trial headed into closing arguments.

Officer Joseph Weekley still faces a charge of reckless discharge of a firearm in the death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones. Weekley is being retried after a jury failed to reach a verdict last year in the same case.

The Detroit Police Department is transitioning out of more than 10 years of federal oversight after complaints of excessive force.
