The latest "incident" - why a 6 month rookie was sent alone considering current circumstances? It would seem he wasn't adequately trained or perhaps not fit to begin with:

Texas cop, 22, charged with murder for shooting dead Jonathan Price outside a convenience store is fired

A white Texas policeman who shot and killed a black city worker was fired on Thursday for 'his egregious violation of the city's and police department's policies'.

Shaun Lucas, 22, has already been charged with murder over the October 3 killing of Jonathan Price, 31.

The shooting happened in Wolfe City, 60 miles north east of Dallas.

Price, a motivational speaker employed by the city, was shot four times in the chest by Lucas, who had only joined the police in April.

Jonathan Price, 31, was shot and killed by Officer Shaun Lucas, 22, on October 3

Lucas arrived at a convenience store in Wolfe City to investigate a report of a fight, according to a probable cause affidavit released on Wednesday.

Price extended a handshake to Lucas moments before he shot him, and asked him: 'You doing good?'

The affidavit states that Lucas opened fire after 'Price appeared to reach out and grab the end of Officer Lucas' taser'.

It also states that Lucas did 'intentionally and knowingly cause the death' of Price, when he fired four shots at the unarmed black man.
[...]
'Earlier today Mr Lucas was terminated for his egregious violation of the city's and police department's policies.'

The Wolfe authorities also thanked the residents of the 1,500-person city for the fact that their vigils and protests 'have remained peaceful'.

This is just so inexcusable, I have to wonder if the young officer was somehow primed to go off like that. Maybe something about training lately is making such situations more likely? We've all heard "Shoot first, ask questions later".

Question is... Will anything come of it?
What if verdict is not guilty, and conservatives erupt nationwide like we've been seeing with other groups?
Par for the course is pleading guilty and sentenced to time served and 3 years probation.

A Month Before Louisville Drug Warriors Killed Breonna Taylor, They Knew the 'Suspicious Packages' She Supposedly Was Receiving Came From Amazon

Even after Breonna Taylor broke up with Jamarcus Glover, he continued to receive packages at her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky. That arrangement had lethal consequences, because it was the main justification for the reckless, fruitless March 13 drug raid that killed Taylor, an unarmed 26-year-old EMT with no criminal record.

Police obtained the no-knock warrant to search Taylor's apartment by suggesting that Glover, who was arrested for drug dealing that same night, had been stashing "narcotics and/or proceeds from the sale of narcotics" there. But according to newly released transcripts of interviews with Louisville police officers, they knew a month before they invaded Taylor's home that Glover's packages contained neither of those things.

The interviews, conducted as part of an internal investigation after the raid, reveal that Joshua Jaynes, the detective who obtained the search warrant that proved to be Taylor's death warrant, learned in early February that there was nothing suspicious about the packages that Glover had delivered at her apartment, which came from Amazon. Jaynes nevertheless used those packages to imply that she was involved in Glover's illegal activity, which Glover insists is not true.

'PARTNERS IN CRIME'

Breonna Taylor pictured with boyfriend holding gun ‘fired at cops’ during home raid where she was shot dead​

A PHOTO has been released which shows Breonna Taylor posing with her boyfriend who is brandishing a gun like the one he fired at cops on the day she was shot dead.

The image — tagged "partners in crime" has emerged as part of a cache of documents related to an internal probe into the police shooting of Taylor, a 26-year-old frontline medic at her home in Louisville, Kentucky, on March 13.

The gun, which looks like the one used to shoot police during the raid, can be seen in this image which is contained in the internal probe documents

In one text message to Walker, which is contained in the documents, Taylor sent an image of herself with the AR-15 pistol

The images were released by Louisville Metro Police Department as part of 4,470 page dossier compiled during its internal probe.

This came after a controversial grand jury ruling that saw no officers directly charged in her death.

The documents also described text messages that suggest her boyfriend Kenneth Walker sold drugs.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but I don't think it necessarily renders one guilty.

There's nothing wrong with taking pictures with guns. There's lots wrong with a police detective using Amazon packages to get a warrant.

Derek Chauvin, the cop charged with George Floyd's murder, will be allowed to leave Minnesota as he awaits trial on bail due to 'safety concerns' after protests erupted following his release

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin will be allowed to leave Minnesota while on bail as he awaits trial on murder charges for the death of George Floyd, a judge has ruled.

Chauvin, 44, was released from a maximum security prison where he had been held since his arrest in May after posting $1million bond on Wednesday.

His release triggered two nights of protests in Minneapolis and St Paul, prompting Governor Tim Walz to mobilize National Guard troops and state law enforcement officers to help keep the peace.

Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill on Friday issued new conditions of his release, citing safety concerns and allowed him to await his trial out of state.

He said the state Department of Corrections, which is supervising Chauvin, presented evidence 'supporting safety concerns that have arisen.'

The order did not specify what that evidence entailed but said the defense and prosecution had agreed to the new terms.

Alleged Antifa militant shoots and kills conservative at 'Patriot Rally' in Denver

“One person was telling the other, ‘Go ahead, mace me bro. Mace me! What are you gonna do? Why don’t you mace me?!’ More pushing. A burst of orange mace erupts and the BANG one single shot,” he wrote. “The larger man fell backwards and the shooter held his hands and gun (still in hands) up in the air. Police rush in, arrest the shooter and surround the body on the ground. They then clear everyone out and that’s when I left.”

Denver Local News Bodyguard Who Killed Trump Supporter Bragged About Harassing and Confronting Conservatives in the Past

“Update: Further investigation has determined the suspect is a private security guard with no affiliation with Antifa. Additional information will be released as it becomes available,” the Denver Police tweeted.
Dolloff has been making far-left social media posts for nearly a decade and has a Space invaders Against Racism tattoo on his right wrist. The tattoo seems to be more of a BLM thing.

City Of Denver: Accused Shooter Matthew Dolloff Is Not Licensed to Be A Security Guard

CBS Denver dropped the bombshell on Sunday night:

The Denver Department of Excise and Licenses tells CBS4’s Andrea Flores Dolloff was not licensed to be a security guard in the city.

"If he was operating as a security guard, he was in violation of the law," said Eric Escudero, a department spokesman, stated. "Security guards are prohibited from carrying or using a firearm without getting an armed firearm endorsement for their license. All security guards in Denver are required to get a federal background check before they receive their license."

Escudero also shared Denver is one of three cities in Colorado where security guards are required to have a license to operate, and there is requirement to have a license in the state.

Security guards are also required to go through training which includes training on use of force.

Doloff had his first advisement hearing Sunday morning. The judge declared the arrest affidavit will be sealed, and the defendant will be held on first degree murder charges without bond.


As I reported earlier, Dolloff's social media show he's a radical leftist with a hatred of Trump supporters.

So, not a licensed security guard and:
Denver Police Dept. Change Story -- Admit They're "Unaware of Whether Suspect is Affiliated With Antifa...

Though the Denver Police Dept. within hours of the shooting rushed to claim that their "investigation" determined Dolloff was a "private security guard with no affiliation with Antifa," on Sunday night they admitted that wasn't true.

"Investigators are unaware of whether the suspect is personally affiliated with any political organization," the Denver PD said.

Who funds the riotous American left & why? The globalist billionaire class, which uses it to build corporate socialism

And why do American leftists dance like marionettes attached to strings pulled by globalist billionaires? Don’t they understand that they’re actually serving the masters they claim to oppose?

The answer is not so simple as the World Socialist Website suggests: “The aims of the Black Lives Matter movement are aligned with those of Wall Street and the US government.” Nor is the answer that BLM/Antifa have merely ‘sold out’ to capitalists. Nor is the donor class making a mistake, or merely interested in racial equality. The answer is that the corporate and billionaire elites prefer a kind of socialism – namely, ‘corporate socialism’.
For both state socialists and corporate socialists, the free market is the enemy. They both seek to eliminate it. The free market threatens the system of state control in the case of state socialism. In the case of corporate socialism, the free market represents an impediment to the unhampered accumulation of wealth. The corporate socialists do not mean to eliminate profit. Quite to the contrary, they mean to increase it and keep it all to themselves.
The difference between state socialism and corporate-run socialism, then, is merely that a different set of monopolists are in control. Under state socialism, the monopoly is held by the state. Under corporate socialism, the monopolists are giant corporations. But both political economies are characterized by monopoly.

And both systems use socialist-communist ideology – or the recent incarnations, ‘social justice’ or ‘woke’ ideology – to advance their agendas. For corporate socialists, corporate monopoly is the desired end and socialist ideology is among the means.
We can see the corporate socialist plan in action with the Covid-19 lockdowns and the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots. The draconian lockdown measures employed by Democratic governors and mayors and the destruction perpetrated by the rioters are doing the work that corporate socialists want done. Is it any wonder that corporate elites favor leftist politics? In addition to destabilizing the nation state, leftist politics are helping to destroy small businesses, thus eliminating competitors.
[L]eftist politics align perfectly with the globalist interests of monopolistic corporations. And corporate socialists are the beneficiaries of their ‘activism’.
