Breathing while black is still a serious offence.

Tl;dr, police peep from window without even bothering with silly stuff as warrants to enter private property or identifying themselves, and proceed to execute the owner of the home for the heinous felony of being in her own living *bed*room while black.

Seriously, if I were a black American, I'd start considering seeking asylum abroad.
Is BLM still a thing, or did it die off?

Edit: Fixed, ty Fartie.

I think BLM is still active. Police brutality in the US certainly still is.

This needs to stop. Seriously.

The absolute sloppiness and outright rampant abusiveness of the police force needs to be checked. This is disgusting, what a travesty of justice.

We actually need the police for a lot of things.

What needs to happen is a clean house and some serious reform. People need to get sacked, and charged.

I feel sorry for the old guy who called the cops. He was just trying to be a good neighbour and it ended up getting his neighbour murdered. Poor guy must be feeling like shit.

Breakins are usually not reported via non-emergency lines. Fuck off with that noise.

They were responding to a non-emergency call from a neighbour concerned that a door was left open at night, who had checked themselves and noticed no movement.

To be fair it's not his responsibility to predict whether the cops that turn up are going to act like undisciplined assholes.
