Sucks that he died but hopefully this will inspire the few good officers left to stand up for what is right.The line between justified hero and martyred villain is not concrete, but let's agree on some things.
You fucking drones that defend the LAPD are part of the reason the way things are. You should be ashamed to call yourself an American you vile pieces of meaningless shit. At least he took a stand for a change he truly wanted.
First and foremost, the innocents who lost their lives in this tragedy should not be trivialized. Respect is due.
Lots of things need to be fixed, too.
We need options.
You're right on that. It's just sad to see a man being pushed over the edge for doing what any good citizen should do. But change needs to happen or I guarantee that there will be more incidents such as this is the near future.
