Trust our judicial system? You must not be paying attention. Our judicial system has been stacked against the citizen for some time. The released information of weed found is a smear tactic that is commonly used in high profile cases. The cop is the one who messed up and shot an innocent man if all this is a big coincidence. But something doesn't smell right

What other justice system do you want? Iran’s??
Peter Wexler 10 months
Police protect their own. The entire justice system is weighted in favor of the police. This should be a second degree murder case. The PIG was negligent and reckless with a deadly weapon. Personally, I think that the stakes should be more substantial. In a perfect world, this would be a capital murder case.

I'm kinda on the lawyer's side on this - the weed seems retroactive & irrelevant

I am very pro-police and this is a clear case of a cop who screwed up. I don't care if she was drunk or overworked, she walked into his house and killed him, that is her mistake not his.
Voin 10 months
Exactly, but that seems to be all this was - a tragic mistake that destroyed his life & her career, not a "fascist cop shooting an unarmed black man b/c muh institutionalized wacism", like the hysterical Regressive Left is making it out to be (& besides, she doesn't even look white). Whatever further consequences she faces, she's already gonna have to live with this for the rest of her life. :/

Ironic that a lawyer is moralizing.

Funny that the lawyer actually seems to think that weed is going to affect a case were someone was shot in their own apartment by an off duty officer. "Well, she admits to shooting him buuut... He had weed?"

It may not impact the case in court, but the court of public opinion is radical and dangerous.

Search Warrant ... what search warrant. you don't need a search warrant for a murder victims apartment. There is very little that is going to change,"Unarmed man shot dead in own apartment by off-duty cop."
Vivian Russell 10 months
Yes, it is strange. The only plausible reason that I can think of is the Dallas PD knew immediately that this would become high profile national news. I think they weren't taking any chances of being accused of not doing enough. Taking the weed, though, is highly suspect.

Or maybe the just did a search and found his weed. Funny how Liberals allow their emotions to cloud their thinking.

what does weed have to do with this case though? they did a search, they found weed, so fucking what? The man was shot and kind in his own apartment via accident but still that's what should be everyones concern.

Dragon’s Roar, you’ve got a point. Him having weed has virtually nothing to do with the fact the guy was shot. Though, as I recall, the woman who shot him gave him several commands before she opened fire. Would it seem so much of a stretch that the man was high, and that’s why he didn’t follow her commands? I understand that this is a terrible incident, and it surely is an accident, but every piece of evidence could be examined into this case. We aren’t lawyers, we aren’t judges, and we are not the law. So it is not up to us to decide whether or not this information is relevant to the case. We just have to trust our judicial system.

Why search the home of the victim and not the killer?

Awakened Goat 10 months
I know I'm not the only one thinking it but, are we sure this unhinged cop didn't murder him in cold blood? We're going to trust the word, that she gave him commands and etc, of someone who couldn't even find their own apartment? The facts do not add up, and even if it was an "accident" this cop should have their badge permanently taken away and should be jailed for manslaughter.

smear campaign, or just cops giving all information to the court they can possibly get in order to get an accurate verdict? Cmon people, lets maybe use our brains and see that the cops are doing their jobs to recreate the scene for the judge and jury since they werent there, and the lawyer is doing his job by calling practices into question, even if they are lawful and in good interest. both groups are doing their jobs well. this is not newsworthy other than to show people that the system does in fact work.

Sounds like a 4th Amendment violation to me...And that's just to issue the warrant. What next? You are a pedestrian and a motor vehicle strikes you in a cross walk when you have the walk indicator... "Your Honor, we need to search the victim's residence to help determine why that car hit him." Bull Snot, plain and simple.
Randy Souse-Git 10 months
And by the way... If the pot was in plain view during the crime scene it would have been bagged and tagged, right? No warrant needed. This is what makes the warrant so egregious, the pot, the grinder AND his laptop so now they get to search his files and online activities. Why? Because he was shot? Double Bull Snot.

One of the few times liberal and conservative are pretty much in agreement. That is a pretty good sign that this is not gonna end as per usual. Liberals need to stop trying to use this as wedge issue. There is no wedge here. There is no partisan here.

Vivian Russell 10 months
For me, the most puzzling aspect is the front door just happening to be ajar. I can't rule out that the victim was stoned and forgot to lock up BUT I can't believe that he left the door ajar. Too much of a coincidence in bad luck timing.

Mr. Spartacus 10 months
When a child custody case can be won or lost based on who cheated...stupid shit like “weed was found in the apartment” is important because it basically is character assasination. The police wouldn’t have mentioned it unless it had some relevance to the case (which it doesn’t) or to protect the officer who fucked up royal

It's just the gears of the machine turning. A crime scene gets searched for evidence as part of police diligence. Hence weed gets found. It is part of report. But then police choose to release it and the various media tribes start beating their particular drum - including the lawyers. Not worth commenting till the trial.
