“It did not meet our core values,” (Updated.)

CREDIT: Twitter.

Cops brazenly gun down 15 year old Jordan Edwards, and now that their lies have been exposed, we get “it did not meet our core values.” How about you arrest and charge the murderous piece of shit cop who decided a 15 year old just had to die? The fact that you haven’t says plenty to me about your so called “core values”.

Think Progress has the full story. My mood is definitely not better.

UPDATE: The murderer has been fired, but not charged, and not arrested. Full story here.

    Didn’t you get the memo? Their “core value” is “turn off the camera first so you don’t get caught.”

    And lets not forget to arrest all the cops who lied about the incident before the video came out. Because the few bad apples have already already spoiled the rest. But, of course, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III will just give those cops more weapons, a raise, and new white hoods to wear.

    I agree with Kengi -- at the point where we see cops being punished for lying, then maybe we can believe cops are trying to clean up their act. As it is, they’re WORSE than the catholic church, which, at least doesn’t kill people. (Though they could teach the cops a thing or two about coverups)

    Given the lavish displays of griefy outpourings whrn a cop is killed, they ought to understand that killing people has a huge effect on a community. If the situation was eye for eye, tooth for tooth, I bet they’d be more polite.

    Uh huh. He should be charged with 1st degree murder, because that’s what it is. Fuck, I’m done with cops getting deals for committing murder. *spits*

    All cops go into protective custody in prison, like child rapists do, otherwise they’d be killed.

    The thing I hate the most about the pictures of cops victims… A lot of smiling, nice-looking young people. That kid looks like the exact opposite of the stereotypical surly 15-year-old. And some cop killed him and is going to get away with it.

    There aren’t enough cops in prison. They should have a whole special wing full of cops, at the rate the cops are going.
