We’re extremely disappointed that after almost five years, these officers are finding themselves indicted for something they had seconds to decide. It sends a chilling effect to officers in Broward County

Weird. The rest of us are extremely disappointed that it took five years for them to face any consequences.

I saw the footage at the time, it seemed pretty clear that they should have gone straight to jail.

They were using other cars with families inside as cover, ffs.

When a cop feels threatened by a civilian they can just put them down like an injured animal.
When a civilian feels threatened by a cop they have to remain calm and keep a level head otherwise they'll be shot.
Honestly I think I'd feel safer defusing a bomb than trying to reason with a cop.

Yeah, I'm positively surprised there's the potential of perhaps some consequences for the ridiculous disregard for civilian life the cops had for this one.
