A 95 year old old folks home resident was killed by police in Chicago after they hit him with a taser and bean bag rounds. Ninety-five. He was armed with a walking cane, at first but obviously was having a dementia episode and retreated to grab a 12″ knife. Chicago’s “finest” were afeared for their lives and blasted him with bean bag rounds — that’s from a shotgun folks. That’s after they tased him, bro.
This is not an isolated incident — it’s a burgeoning trend in law enforcement that officer safety trumps all, and that officers are trained to view the public as “the enemy”. And remember…the police have no duty to serve or protect.
