    Anyone think the dispatcher deserves to be punished?

    He or she never told the police that the person who called in said the armed person was probably a child with a fake gun.

    The police assumed Tamir was an older person on a gun rampage.

    The dispatcher deserves to be fired at the very least.

    I don't know if the dispatcher should be fired, but definitely should get reprimanded in some fashion.

    Even without that added info the cops were still in the wrong. They never took the time to really investigate what happened. Nobody was in immediate danger at the time and even then they didn't take the time to issue proper warning.

    People keep saying "What else were the cops supposed to do" as if we haven't seen countless instances of armed white men who are an immediate threat get brought in without so much as a scratch on their head. In those instances cops take the time to assess the situation properly and deescalate things so an arrest can be made if necessary.

    I agree the police on the scene were far too trigger happy and killed an innocent kid.

    But Tamir might be alive today if the dispatcher did their job.

    When someone is killed because of your incompetence, you deserve to be fired at the very least.

    NSA Israel, Congress spying report makes waves for 2016 field

    In a (not at all) shocking revelation, the government lied to the people and other allied governments by continuing to spy on them.

    And another unsurprise is Presidential wannabe Rubio trying to skirt around the fact this is going on and avoiding taking responsibility or demanding any responsibility be taken. See, he's on the Senate Sub Committee who authorizes things like this so he's in a tricky position.

    White cop in South Carolina? Surprised he even had to get bailed out instead of just released on his own.

    Body cam footage leads to indictment for cop accused of beating woman
    Video counters officer's report that woman he was arresting was combative.

    Bodycams look to be having an impact.

    What's up with these police?! I thought they made good salaries to make up for the every day stress they deal with but it seems like a lot of them are straight psychopaths. There really needs to be a more defined way for these guys to go through the academy. It's crazy!

    There definitely needs to be a system that weeds out the bullies. And cops shouldn't be able to jump from one district to another when they are fired. If a cop is fired for violence or anger management issues that person should not be allowed to work in law enforcement again. Its harsh, but we shouldnt be taking any chances with law enforcement.

    That right there is disgraceful.

    Its probably unbelievable how many times cops hide behind that blue shield.

    Look at the ***** blubber. Serves him right. The only more fitting punishment would be chemical castration first.

    Of all the places you would expect him to get convicted, Oklahoma seems among the least likely.

    Probably a good idea. If I was that much of a POS and was sentenced to 260+ years Id kill myself. Im suprised more criminals sentenced to life without parole dont off themselves.

    The evidence must've been pretty convincing.

    13 women, predatory pattern, and I think the reason he got hit with ALL the years is because Oklahoma is a mandatory minimum state

    Yup, just finished. I believe that the Manitowoc Sheriff's Department is completely incompetent and despicable and some of their officers should definitely end up in prison, but I do believe that Avery is guilty.

    Bill criminalizing anal and oral sex passes Michigan Senate

    I debated where this stupid, weird and abuse of power law should go. Ultimately I decided this was a bigger abuse of power by lawmakers eager to use their personal moral opinions rather than to uphold the rights for consenting adults to do as they please with one another.

    Also, they continue to dodge doing anything productive or effective about Fllint Michigan's polluted water problem and are naturally punting it off for someone else to do something about it, despite it being their fault.
