One comment. I understand that the police officers in the Gray case have been charged with homicide. It should be noted that a perverse way for the prosecutor to attempt to protect the officers is to overcharge them so that when the case goes to trial an acquittal results because the evidence doesn't support the charge. Given that I don't have all the information I would like I can't say for sure that is what is happening here. But it is possible that could be happening here.

The murder charge is "“second-degree depraved heart murder", which is my new favorite legal phrase.

Means that officer wasn't necessarily trying to kill him, but was acting with malice and a reckless indifference to whether he died or not. Beyond criminal negligence, since there was intent involved, but not normal second degree murder since the intent wasn't necessarily to kill.

I don't think she overcharged in this case. It's still going to have to go through a grand jury, which should be a formality if the prosecutor actually wants charges, but is often where charges against officers go to die.

It's also possible to undercharge. Recently a judge cleared Chicago police officer Dante Servin on manslaughter charges, ruling that he should have been charged with murder.

that case made me vomit with rage.

The funny part is, I decided earlier this week I was going to make it this weekend, since we had bananas starting to brown.

This morning, though, I went into the kitchen and John had left the bananas next to a cookbook open to a banana bread recipe right where I would see it. I think he was trying to tell me something. Apparently we were in agreement about what needed to be done.

I got my hair touched up today. The blue came out much darker. Kind of an iridescent midnight color, a bit like starling feathers. Which is cool.

My husband is more lucid today which isn't doing him any favors since he is still in a lot of pain. And bored out of his mind. He's so frustrated about not being able to read or watch tv. Not that he can pay attention to anything yet. I've played the same podcast for him twice and he didn't even recognize it the second time... Looks like a longer than predicted recovery.

Back on this topic (because I can, HAH!) probably the most rude I've ever been to a customer was when they verbally attacked my store, my friends, and my coworkers on my behalf... because I said, "I hope you have a nice rest of your day!" as I did to all my customers.

Me: "I hope you have a nice rest of your day."

Customer: "WHAT DID YOU SAY?! WHAT THE **** DID YOU SAY! DON'T YOU DARE WISH ME A NICE DAY YOU ****! YOUR **** FRIENDS AND **** COWORKERS ARE ALL **** PEOPLE WITH **** <blah-blah-blah, zoned out while smiling and nodding as best as I could, as customers lined up, and...

I am worried that devils and the like will take after your unflappable politeness should I end up in hell.

No, not really. Why?

I know I do.

As long as there are good cops protecting bad ones, nothing is going to change.

Police unions should ensure that due process is followed in internal disciplinary actions when police officers are accused of crimes or other behaviors. That's part of their job. They do it well. This probably should extend to representation in criminal cases.

Police departments, prosecutors and judges however should not be in the business of protecting or covering up for criminal behavior by police officers. That's where the root of the problem lies, not with the unions.

I must disagree.

The unions ate a party of the problem here. I am not saying its time to go union busting, but the police union will happily make sure a paid vacation is as comfortable as possible when an officer is accused of a crime.

Let me ask you: do you know what being a female white European Christian aid worker in the Middle East is like? No? Well then, I suggest you read the rather graphic spoiler below and I'll tell you. I know very well what discrimination is, but I do not blame people who did not participate, unless they explicitly support those actions, not just passively have a 'meh' attitude about them.

** spoiler omitted **

So tell me, LazarX, is that not discrimination? Or does that not count because I am not one of a particular group? If the latter, then what is the difference? Votre réponse?

EDIT: Why is J&&ya distorted? It's not a curse word, as far as I know. J-i-z-y-a is the word, minus the -'s.

EDIT 2: And just so we're clear, the first two out of those events in the spoiler were perpetrated by the equivalent of a police officer, while the third was pretty much done by police and civilian alike, and the fourth happened while an officer was standing RIGHT THERE.

Ange de la Nuit:

Are you trying to justify systemic discrimination and brutality by a American police force against persons of color by the discrimination and brutality of brown police against white people ten thousand miles away?

And don't you think that the complete obliteration of two countries in the last decade (Iraq and Libya) by Europeans and North Americans, let alone the last few centuries of 'meddling'...

What does this tell us, that the people who are supposed to protect and serve the public generally do not.

Your story actually tells us that you had two specific bad experiences with law enforcement figures. Anecdotes like that in no way indicate the general predilection of anything.

Now, by this I'm not saying the abuse of power is statistically insignificant. I suspect it's quite significant, actually. But I've not seen anything yet that has persuaded me that the MAJORITY of police officers in the United States are abusive or corrupt.

Whatever your personal experiences with police officers or other law enforcement, don't throw the baby out with the bath water, man.

if we do nothing until the majority of the police fit this description, then we will truly be screwed, every one of us.
