“Murdering people, black, brown, whatever. It’s kind of funny how they got murdered doing something that was against the law.”
What is it that makes this funny? It’s what happened to George Floyd and hundreds — thousands? — of others..

Being shot 7 times is never an appropriate Action by any police officer. One shot is enough to incapacitate anyone. 7 shots is deliberate murder and should be treated as such.
If officers are so terrified of their responsibilities to keep the public safe, rather than killing our citizens, then they should not be in uniform. If an officer is involved in multiple shooting deaths then their reviews must include murder investigation and possible charges for their actions.
Bottom line: police must act to defend citizens, not murder them.

To whoever did this cowardly deed you should be ashamed of yourselves. All this did was cost the city and taxpayers money. Walk a mile in a police officers shoes and you will see that the majority of them are fine, hardworking people who would like nothing better than to be an asset to the community they work in. These are the officers who help families and go out of their way to treat everyone with respect. This needs to stop as it is accomplishing nothing only costing the city money just like the city of Reno.
