Hero of the week : Roy Oliver, former Balch Springs, Texas officer, convicted of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards’ murder

And here comes the comeuppance for the Jack booted thugs. Not in the streets , but in the court room; Convicted by those that they oppress.  A road bandit with a rage to kill and a power trip will no longer walk away.   The old saying , Lay down with dogs and wake up with fleas applies here.    Everyone is catching on to who these people behind these badges are. Viral videos circulate among young and old alike , exposing rampant abuse and violence.   We live in an age with no respect for the likes of those who patrol our streets and abuse our citizens.  We live in an age when a bystander films as a cop is overcome by an enraged citizen and no help is offered.     There are so many cases of shootings, beatings, lying and corruption to be seen that the moral high ground has been given over and no one just assumes the cop is in the right.  Few are willing to give default hero status anymore based on the color of a uniform.   They have brought this on themselves and in the coming times are going to be paying for it.  Go ahead, enjoy your time as a tough guy on the street.    Garner all the power you can, order, abuse and control ; Until it catches up to you and you get your day in court

Jurors are deciding the fate of a former Texas police officer who was convicted of murder for fatally shooting a black, unarmed teenager last year in suburban Dallas.

Wednesday marks the second day of the sentencing phase in the trial of Roy Oliver, who was convicted Tuesday for the 2017 slaying of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards. Edwards was killed when Oliver, a police officer in Balch Springs at the time, fired into a car full of black teenagers as it drove away from a house party.

In a rare guilty verdict in a police shooting case, the Dallas County jurors were not swayed by Oliver’s claim that he feared for his partner’s life when he fired into the vehicle.”

“But prosecutors described Oliver as out of control and looking for a reason to kill. They argued that his firing into the car wasn’t reasonable.

The shooting came after Oliver and his partner, Tyler Gross, had broken up the party. Both officers were inside the residence when they heard gunfire outside and responded. Authorities later determined the shots were fired near a nursing home in the area.

Oliver retrieved his rifle and went toward Gross, who was ordering the car carrying Edwards to stop. Oliver testified that he saw the car back up and stop for a second before moving forward and going toward Gross.

Oliver told the jury the car was about to hit his partner. Oliver said he felt he had no other option but to fire. Gross, however, testified that he did not fear for his life and never felt the need to fire his weapon. He also said he didn’t feel like the vehicle was trying to hit him.

Prosecutors said Oliver fired after the vehicle passed Gross. Investigators also said no guns were found in the teens’ vehicle.”

Go on, go on; Keep telling yourself that it is just a few bad apples

That’s easier than facing the truth about how corrupt the whole system is

It’s easier than admitting how much danger you are really in when you have an encounter with one of these road bandits on a dark highway

It takes a certain type of person to want to control others for a living and this is what you get in the end

In a survey by a National police organization 45% of respondents (Officers) stated that they had witnessed police misconduct and said nothing about it

Makes you wonder about a police culture that allows a scum like the above mentioned to rise to the top

Good luck and happy travels and here’s to hoping you won’t encounter any of this guys buddies on a dark lonely Texas county highway

Heroes of the week: Body cam footage shows Vegas cops hiding in hallway while shooter mows people down 1 floor above

Boy, they are real tough guys when they are pushing and bossing women around. When they are completely in control and have the upper hand they sure do show their ass.  But the problem here? That is the description of a typical bully. And that is what most of them are. They have more in common with thugs and wife beaters than the common citizen.       Look at the coward that sat outside the Broward Florida school while children were being mowed down. I am sure that when he was in complete control of the situation he was a real hard ass, swaggering around with his vest and gun.    But without back up and 40 other cops…… He was just a frightened bully that was too afraid to act.

“Newly released body camera footage shows Las Vegas police officers pausing for several minutes in the hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel — as mass shooter Stephen Paddock guns down 58 people on the floor directly above them.”

“Holy sh-t that’s rapid fire,” officer Cordell Hendrex utters in the chilling video, reacting to Paddock’s gunfire — which he later described as “like thunder all around and above us,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The officer and his first-day trainee, Elif Varsin, stayed on the 31st floor for four-and-a-half minutes, even as they heard the shooter’s position reported as “the 32nd floor, room 135.”

“I’m inside the Mandalay Bay on the 31st floor,” Hendrex says in the video. “I can hear the automatic fire coming from one floor ahead, one floor above us.”

In a report, he later wrote that he “froze right there in the middle of the hall” after being terrified.

Three armed Mandalay Bay officers were with the Metro cops during the incident.

Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Louis Schneider said Nevada law protects the officers from liability — unless they were moving slowly on purpose.

“In the limited context of this video, it looks like they’re moving deliberately slow, but that could be for safety purposes,” Schneider told the paper. “But if you wait on an active shooter, you end up using a lot of body bags.”

The footage was the eighth batch of records released since an April Nevada Supreme Court decision compelled the Metropolitan Police Department to hand over records. Media organizations sued for the records in the aftermath of the Oct. 1 bloodbath — in which Paddock broke a window in his hotel room and opened fire on thousands of music festival attendees.”
