THIS BRAIN DEAD FERRET IS FAR FROM ANY SENSE OF THE WORD COMPREHENSION. A LUSH OR BRAIN FRIED DRUG ADDICT.

When the jury sees the video of the    insane out of control crack head......   Kim will do no time

It was definitely a case of manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide. Why is that? Kim Potter could not have possibly planned this out with any detail. For murder charge to really stick, you have

How do you prove it wasn't a mistake. Her word against yours. She won't be convicted of anything near that. 

 

It was obviously a mistake, an accident

 

That's why it's not a murder charge

In case anybody was wondering if a complete ignorance of the law would stop a couple of nitwits so stupid they could be suckered by a trump from playing lawyers in this refuge for the dumbest Deplorables in Rightardia.

 

Lotsa people in prison today for "accidental" manslaughter.

WTF are you babbling about? Are you saying you think it wasn't an accident?

They should just change the law so cops can shoot people like that in the face.  Get rid of the stupid tasers. The jerk was a wanted criminal and then he picks a fight with the cops...shoot him in the face, realize that the world is just a little bit better and let it go at that.

 

In the man time every cop in the country should just walk off then job because they've been hung out to dry.

The end result of situations is going to be that fewer people will enter the law enforcement profession and that they are going to be relegated to glorified baby sitting in most encounters.

This won't even end up in court.    There will be a guilty plea in exchange for a reduced sentence.   6 months in jail and restitution.  

 

The city is fucked though.   The George floyd Civil settlement will come into play and this one will also be in the millions.

City governments/police depts are going to get to a point where they view the actions of the police in terms of potential liability. One can have warm and fuzzy narratives about the good that they do (which I agree that they do) but if the budgets get destroyed, does it matter?

It definitely seems like we are moving in a direction that any level of force is going to be eliminated from policy.   Just ask the person politely to comply and if they drive or run away then just wave and say "thank you for your time".

FYI...

 

2020 Minnesota Statutes

609.205 MANSLAUGHTER IN THE SECOND DEGREE.

 

A person who causes the death of another by any of the following means is guilty of manslaughter in the second degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than ten years or to payment of a fine of not more than $20,000, or both:

(1) by the person's culpable negligence whereby the person creates an unreasonable risk, and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another; or

(2) by shooting another with a firearm or other dangerous weapon as a result of negligently believing the other to be a deer or other animal; or

(3) by setting a spring gun, pit fall, deadfall, snare, or other like dangerous weapon or device; or

(4) by negligently or intentionally permitting any animal, known by the person to have vicious propensities or to have caused great or substantial bodily harm in the past, to run uncontrolled off the owner's premises, or negligently failing to keep it properly confined; or

(5) by committing or attempting to commit a violation of section 609.378 (neglect or endangerment of a child), and murder in the first, second, or third degree is not committed thereby.

If proven by a preponderance of the evidence, it shall be an affirmative defense to criminal liability under clause (4) that the victim provoked the animal to cause the victim's death.

Precisely. They will be in such fear of lawsuits that the only way force can be justified is if there is video of the suspect/criminal using a weapon against them.

Taser taser taser. I would like cops to be careful with how they use violence.

Did they even  have an  investigation ?

 

Or did they rush to charge in order to quell the  rioters?

You haven't seen the tape?

And then there will come a time when that is deemed excessive and lawsuits will arise from tasing. 

I think an unjustified attack with a taser is clearly assault and battery.  The Lieutenant iv VA did all he was asked to do and the idiot cop still tases him.

I'm saying you are too stupid to understand what "manslaughter" is.  I am betting you are also too stupid to understand an explanatory example.  If you are driving recklessly and "accidentally" kill somebody, you are likely still guilty of manslaughter, dumbass.

Pssst.  Posting an hysterical fear that a big government will not protect you kinda detracts from the way Deplorables love to pose all independent Hondo.
