What the fuck is wrong with American cops?

It's not even safe to call them to report an issue.

A Minneapolis Cop Shot and Killed a Bride-to-Be

Justine Damond, an Australia native, died late Saturday after an officer opened fire while responding to a 911 call about a possible assault, her family and authorities said.

. . . .

The younger Damond said Justine Damond called 911 after she “heard a sound in the alley” behind her home. 

Two officers arrived at the scene at about 11:30 p.m. 

Both officers had their body cameras turned off, authorities said. 

The incident is under investigation.

Seattle insists it's a model for progressive policing – so why was Charleena Lyles killed?

Police were quick to respond to Charleena Lyles’s call about a burglary in her apartment. 

Less than an hour after she dialed 911 on the morning of 18 June, she opened her door to two Seattle officers and explained that her Xbox went missing after a trip to the store.

Two minutes and 35 seconds later, the pregnant mother of four was lying on the floor, face-down, bleeding from gunshot wounds. 

Her one-year-old son crawled to her and rested his head on her body.

The policemen, who are both white, had fired bullets at Lyles from about 5ft away.
