Yeah. Poor innocent victims of the meanie police officers. I've found it can be useful to actually "freeze" and take a good listen while a gun is pointed at me. I guess I just wanted to live more tthan others. Meh....
I got into it with some nagger on FB about this because he was saying the cop should go to prison for life etc etc. In later exchanges he started saying the cop is now fired and the black panthers will get their justice etc etc. I said some more mean things.
The article I saw says the settlement will be paid by some kind of insurance policy. Bet their rates will go up though. It's a lot of money but it will never bring back her son. Jeronimo seems remorseful; doesn't seem like an evil guy. I think he just panicked when Philando was reaching for his license as requested, thinking wrongly that he was going for the gun which he mentioned having and was licensed to carry. I'd like to think that more/better training could have prevented this. Now he has to live with his actions weighing on his conscience for the rest of his life. There are no winners here.
When you are told three times in a row to "don't reach for it" by a cop with a gun in your face and you keep moving...Jesus! Keep both hands on the steering wheel and talk it through. It super helps to have fucking Queen Latifah fucking around in the passenger seat on her phone.
