This is a follow-up to my post Attempted murder by cop whitewashed by press.
The Cherokee County Sheriff released a new statement to address the video that has gone viral of cops firing squading a guy in a doorway after just waking him up.
It’s some fucking bullshit.
“I didn’t know what happened because all my subordinate officers lied to me with a bullshit story and I believed them. The original statement which pissed off everyone who saw the video was written by the County Attorney and is also not my fault. Besides, the shooting wasn’t really my fault either, it’s the fault of the local police. Give me money for my own SWAT Team so we don’t have to use the city’s SWAT Team next time.”
Fuck this guy.
What a stunning lack of leadership a bullshit statement like that reveals.
Near murderous fuck-ups should not be rewarded with budget increases.
