Wasn't BagOMayo voted one-year president of that OCSO sideshow like 2 years ago? Unbiased? Really? Too bad the media there is spineless as jellyfish.Those quotes are hearsay. No one in law enforcement heard Patterson make those statements. No one knows the motivations of the friend from whom these alleged statements originated. Again, you fall into the trap of replacing fact and critical thinking with emotion, just as McNamara and Maciol desire.
Again, it's you, Truth, who is missing the boat. I read that and it doesn't apply. The law provides for self defense (which is what you asked for and what I provided). Your attempt at redirection to Justification of Physical Force makes no logical sense and is off point. Patterson was not under arrest for anything. Police had no cause to arrest him. That came out in the trial as well. They had no basis to launch a gun fight. You would know this if you did the homework several contributors recommended, such as learning what was exposed during the trial.
Truth, you're just a sheep, willing to buy the easy and half baked answers offered by the ivory tower instead of rolling up your sleeves and digging to the bottom. Yawn. You bore me.
As the OCSO whitewashes the so-called "after action" report and with no hard deadline for its release, you'll fall deeper into their trap of lies.
Let's ask some questions? Truth, please answer the following:
Just what has the OCSO been doing with the report all of this time? Why more delay? Why hasn't a truly independent investigation been performed? Doesn't it appear odd that the agency being investigated (the OCSO) has the ability to redact statements in an investigation?
Just look at what Swenszkowski said in the Utica OD article published today,“We want to set a time for review involving some of the people that were part of the incident to check the factual aspects for any discrepancies and to make sure everything is accurate, and to check for any content that might compromise officer safety that needs to be redacted”.
A REAL after action report would have collected and examined all available evidence and testimony. There is no need for further review. What Swenszkowski means is they want to doctor the findings to completely cover their butts before the report is released.
Why is this so difficult for you to comprehend?
Also you gotta love how many times they hide behind that "Officer Safety" phaggotbullshit? There they go again. From the results and endless delays in the Manhattan Project you'd think they don't GAF about their safety.
