What was the man being charged with?
Does that matter? We are presumed innocent.
But since you insist, driving on a suspended license. Dude was pulling a trailer, and it wasn't a high speed chase
The radio dispatcher said, "Per 59 (the sheriff) use deadly force if necessary. Take the subject out by any means necessary."
After that order, Deputy West took out his gun.
They were on Highway 111 with few cars in sight.
Minutes later deputies pushed Dial's truck off the road.
West got out of his truck and immediately opened fire.
Officer Charlie Simms also started shooting.
Dial was struck in the head.
He was unarmed.
As far as I am concerned, the Sheriff is a stinking murderer. As are the deputies.
Not arguing, just wondering what could have incited such a response.
He was white, fwiw.
It is worth quite a bit. Frustrating that groups that share so much puff the same struggle, lack of voice and have so many common concerns are conditioned to go after each other's neck instead of those that exploit their position for their own gain
I really love puppies
Anglo-American? What does that have to do with anything? Racist jerk.
No, he's talking about the historical origins of the sheriff. Anglo-American law isn't a racist moniker; it refers to legal jurisprudence and used to be widely used in legal circles. It refers to the law as developed in England, and to a lesser extent France, as adopted by the United States when the country was founded.
Spoken like a true lawyer. There's always some language that can minimize potential un-political correctness.
Um, not really. That phrase has been around and used by judges of all stripes since the founding of the Republic. U.S. v. Windsor, 133 S.Ct. 2675, 2699 n.1 (2013) (Roberts, C.J. dissenting) ("one might search the annals of Anglo–American law for another “Motion to Dismiss” like the one the United States filed in District Court...); Shady Grove Orthopedic Assocs., P.A. v. Allstate Ins. Co., 559 U.S. 393, 454 (2010) (Ginsburg, J., dissenting) ("In the history of Anglo–American law the domestic case has been normal"); Strother v. Lucas, 37 U.S. 410, 421, 9 L. Ed. 1137 (1838) ("That the defendant has shown no title by prescription under the Spanish or civil law, or by the statutes of limitation, (in bar of plaintiff,) under the Anglo-American laws to the lots in question.")
Not everything is a racist dog whistle, guys.
His prepared remarks didn't say anything about Anglo-American. He ad-libbed that. When most of your actions are racially motivated, excuse us for reading into the remarks.
Separate names with a comma.
