Flint Farmer was armed only with a cell phone when video footage caught Officer Gildardo Sierra beating him to the ground and shooting him seven times.
Sierra fired 16 rounds. He admitted drinking “multiple” beers before killing Farmer under the mistaken assumption that he was armed. He had a fatal shooting on his record already. And Cook County prosecutors are refusing even to bring charges against him.
Please…tell me…how in the hell do you get recorded shooting an unarmed man, who is laying on his stomach, 7 times—in the back—and still not have ANY charges filed against you?
If someone got caught shooting a dog 7 times “because they were drunk” they would face a harsher penalty than absolutely nothing
Yeah and doctors would be making like 267 dollars an hour.
Are you fucking retarded
Minimum here is like 17 or so
What the fuck does the comment about doctors have to do with anything? A number of the most high-priced of them do make comparable figures to that anyway.
A lot of the cause of the income and the wealth gaps which have grown over the last thirty years is attributable to an upward redistribution of wealth. Not just the creation of new wealth. And that’s not even addressing how inflation has eaten away at the worth of the minimum wage over the years.
Are you really surprised babushka-nipples would say something like that, Mephistopheles?
I get angry when Christians in the United States — especially the Christian Right — try to have it both ways on the “persecuted martyr /favored majority” question. I get angry when they play the “Christian nation” card, saying “majority rules, there are more of us then there are of you, we get to push the rest of you around and make everyone play the way we want”… and then, when it’s politically expedient, they turn around and howl about how Christians are being persecuted by the secular humanist power structure, and how Christianity is in grave danger of being eradicated. Those things can’t both be true. Pick one.
