Johnson, GA- An unarmed black woman was gunned down in Johnson, GA last night at a Wal-Mart in front of her three year old daughter. Around 10 p.m., 25 year old Sharon Mosley was at Wal-Mart on Gray Hwy, shopping with her daughter when police were called to the big box store. When exiting the store, an asset protection associate aggressively approached Mosley and confronted her. Mosley denied all allegations and became irate with the employee. The associate then tried to apprehend Mosley but failed. Mosley then grabbed her daughter and ran out of the store. While running out the store, Mosley was then confronted by the Jefferson County police. The police demanded Mosley get on the ground. When Mosley kneeled to the ground, before lying down she reached in her pockets. As soon as one of the police men noticed she had reached in her pockets, he immediately fired three shots at Mosley, killing her instantly. Authorities have said that no Wal-Mart merchandise was found on the victim and that apparently Mosley reached in her pockets to grab her over-sized cell phone.
"I will never apologize for the United States — I don’t care what the facts are… I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — George H. W. Bush as Vice-president, during a presidential campaign function (2 Aug 1988), commenting on the Navy warship USS Vincennes having shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in a commercial air corridor on July 3, killing 290 civilians, as quoted in “Perspectives”, the quote of the week section of Newsweek (15 August 1988)
i had no idea this happened. holy fuck.
"I don’t care what the facts are" can summarize the entirety of U.S foreign policy
The family of an 8-year-old Native American girl who was tazed by police in October is suing while the Pierre Police Department say it was justified.
The Chief of Police justifies the use of a tazer on an 8 year old girl by saying they could have used their guns or batons, essentially. What restraint.
More evidence that the only good cop is a dead one/

His entire department at a previous town was shut down because of widespread corruption. they were literally so bad that people voted to close the police down.
