    Major oopsie by the cops. Queue “Curb Your Enthusiasm” theme.

  • Kendra Stuckey says:

    The officers didn’t announce themselves. They also went to the WRONG house! The suspect they were looking for had already been detained by law enforcement. This is the typical, poor, reckless, incompetent behavior of trigger happy thugs who should not have been hired as police. Why is there charges against the boyfriend for protecting his family, but no charges against those three murderous officers? These three trigger happy officers murdered an innocent, unarmed woman in her own home. This woman was on the front lines as a EMT saving lives during this pandemic. But, her life was taken from her. The officers should not be on ANY assignment or reassignment. They should be handcuffed after being arrested and charged with most of all MURDER.

    i’m always pro police, but this is absolutely reckless and terrible.

  • Jose Garcia says:

    All those involved should be tortured then dismembered

  • All Knowledge says:

    You see, most cops are illiterate. Each and every savage cop should have been shot dead. There should be a public outcry. Maybe all of the cretin cops should be sent to the Korengal valley in Afghanistan. And made to walk while wearing American flag t shirts. Lets see how big and bad they are.

  • hockeyslade says:

    Too bad he didnt get all three.

    Who is policing the police???

    Jesus, If we let Mr. Walker go to jail we will have made a moral misjudgement.

  • Phildo Baggins says:

    Something needs to be done about the police in this country.

  • big POPPA says:

    This is outrageous. They all need to be sentenced.

  • ee rr says:

    Does second amendment not matter anymore? Arrest a man for defending his home? Y’all should’ve handled the situation better and announce yourselves. Or do something.

  • DJ AIR says:

    Damm,they did Fred Hampton the same way.

  • SBJ8405 says:

    I will not vote for any candidate regardless of party who is for no knock police raids on drug cases.

    You need the black militia

    This is white America my people . Two different justice systems (1 for whites and. 1 for blacks ) Welcome to America

  • Melanin Views says:

    If you break into my house I’m shooting you . I don’t care who it is .

  • Ron Metoyer says:

    We gotta shoot back! And not miss!

  • Christopher Columbus says:

    I hope this cases goes to the federal level. We need more laws for cops. This is en example of self defense. Makes no sense for a suppose drug dealer to call 911 on cops.

  • Al Ustad Hassannor Ahmed says:

    what is going on in America? why are black people sitting idly doing nothing to put this to end.

  • Rico Allen says:

    You know how we got to this point? Because people defended the deaths of Trayvon, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, and even Botham Jean. People who defended all of them, look to yourselves. We wouldn’t have cases like this if certain people stopped giving them excuses and wiggle room.

  • Mark Brown says:

    they would have skipped that warrant if they knew the guy was a registered gun owner. I hope a toxicology test was done on the cops.

  • 2016r6 860 says:

    Okay he is a licensed gun owner. So they cops knew they had a gun. And if they are wearing plain clothes and body camera something fishy right there. Of course they gunna say the acounted them self or if they kocked said police open up. They did not get woken up intill forced entry. That’s why they say wear body cameras. So u have 3 cops not 1 was wearing them. Thats he say she say story…. someone who owns a gun legally . You think he shoot a cop to lose his right and have to give it up . I don’t think so. If he was a convicted felon and running a drug house and had nothing to lose. So many things wrong with this situation. And for most states if someone is coming towards u u have the right to shoot if they are going away from you u can not. So far I would disagree with the cops

  • Mark perez says:

    Again 3 white male acting stupid and not doing there jobs right, where the justice in this? I can’t believe I’m saying this but there is no justice in this black and white world. Sad just sad 🤦‍♂️

  • Alex Chacon says:

    This is proof that cops are complete idiots

  • Robbie Ezc says:

    PD need to consider this scenario:
    Armed criminals break down your door. They shout “POLICE! POLICE!” as they enter, you put your gun down, hands up, and peacefully surrender, only to be murdered.

    Now another:
    Armed police officers break down your front door, they shout “POLICE! POLICE!”
    You think *yeah right suuure* pull out your firearm, fire through the door, or wall(because you know this house, and use it to your advantage.
    KillIing all police intruders.

    Now we have dead officers doing their job, and a home defender doing his part, charged with murdering a bunch of cops.
    Who very well could have been intruders.

    How can you charge someone for defending their home?
    How can you prove if they knew they were firing at cops?

    Is the reward worth the risk?
    (Dead cops, and dead civilians)
    Are you too lazy to be %100 sure that this is right place to hit?

  • El Chino says:

    It looks like they went to jack a dealers dope and got the wrong house

  • TaPharoah says:

    Wow. Same ol’ movie on repeat, I see. Tired of watching it, honestly.

  • Ramon Medina says:

    Why when cops do something wrong they. Always never take blame

  • Dough Boy says:

    Start killing the officers family members they will change wtf they do.

  • OldM1tanker says:

    He was defending his home. The pos cops failed to do any raid pre-planning….didn’t bother checking the computer to see if the person they were hunting was incarcerated…just like crapefornea DOJ. Raids peoples home to take their guns….but didn’t know that the person they were going after was already incarceratied….they allegedly triple checked…according to the staged ride along youtube videos….. and cops can’t figure out why they get ambushed while on patrol…..

  • #ChefE.Muhammad The Chef says:

    Thats what you should get when you cross that door threshhold..

  • k t says:

    Plain clothing, unannounced at 1 a.m.? If I would have mistaken that as a break into, they better start using a bullhorn. No dash or body cam?

  • Polar Bear says:

  • Serjio Robles says:

    No body cams? Sounds more like a shake down for money or robbery attempt from the plain clothes officers on a drug dealer just like what the police were doing in Baltimore.

  • Edward Blodgett says:

    We see LEOS beginning to overstep their boundaries.
    We knew these government officials would cave to their tyrant government despite claiming they would not overstep the public rights.

    LEOS know well the average homeowner is gonna protect THE home with firearms.
    Talking about a set up to take away guns by force and DEATH is designed into the raids

  • Cave Becky Flatbooty Bitch says:

    Can someone let me know when these so called “good white people” who claim to be against racism start holding their own people accountable?👀. Cuz, I’m tired of seeing black people marching and trying to dismantle a system that we didn’t create not benefit from.

  • Big Smoke Guitar says:

    Never known for outstanding intellect

  • Rob Roberts says:

    Is there anyone out here that would be on a jury and find this person guilty? I didn’t think so. The cops are the ones that need to be charged. So clear this person and charge the police.

  • adfasd says:

    Charge and convict the officers.

  • EddieWordzTv says:

    1) Stop coming to ” Suspects ” assumed residents in the middle of the night. Especially in a country where citizens have the right to bare arms and defend themselves against attackers.

    2) Stop kicking in doors using suprise attacks to serve warrants. Especially in a country where citizens have the right to bare arms and defend themselves against attackers.

    3) Stop assuming that “Suspects” can hear officers on the other side of the door ” announcing ” themselves before entering. In a WORLD where wireless bluetooth headphones, speakers, and earbuds are making Corporations millions of dollars per year…the above practice is obsolete.

    4) Stop attempting to arrest people in PLAIN CLOTHING. In a country where countless home invasions and armed robberies have occurred by criminals posing as law enforcement agents, the above practice is obsolete.

    5) Officers who get themselves involved in situations like this should immediately be suspended from the police department [without pay], and treated as the prime criminal suspects in a MURDER case, until proven innocent. Because in America, You are presumed Guilty until PROVEN innocent. I understand what the Law States, but in practice law enforcement agencies are doing it BACKWARDS.

    6) Along with all standard legal proceeding, it might be time to add a multicultural jury of 120 individuals from various religious, economical, and social standings to be the voice of the court of public opinions. In situations like this one, Maybe a jury of 12 peers isn’t truly a representation of the public that law enforcement serves.

    The current order of operation is inadequate and people are inherently corrupt. I believe it is easier and will have a higher success rate if we ratify the system, rather than attempt to change the bias individual’s may have towards the public they have CHOSEN to work for.

    May God bless America. #StayHealthy #StaySafe.

  • Jonathan Henry says:

    Imaging that; a 26 year young lady, doing everything right, essential
    worker, apparently worked at two hospitals; murdered violently in her
    home in the middle of the night by rogue cops. I wonder why NBC doesn’t
    report the details that the guy they were looking for was already found
    and in jail. God Rest her Soul. I hope that man gets out of jail asap.
    Those three cops need to be charged with murder; so the judge can hear
    how they decided to do this: person they were after was already in custody; why are they in plain
    clothes, no body cam, three cops in the middle of the night, without backup? It’s like they went
    there to do a HIT.

    Police raids and no knock raids needs to come to an end plain and simple to many corrupted stupid cops!!

    where’s that 911 call?

  • Nate Dog says:

    What!!! White cops shot and killed black folks and got away with it? I hope this isn’t the start of some sort of trend, cause that would just be crazy in this great land of freedom and equality. It would have the white founding fathers turning over in their graves.

  • DachshundsRule says:

    I just commented when I shared the other news story that I’d like to see the BWC footage from this “raid”. And whadda know, there is none. How ’bout the 9-1-1 call? That would help.


    This is beyond infuriating. I am disgusted by this. This is america. Living while black in this country. You defend your home, and you face charges . How depressing. The land of the free? Really???

  • Bella Reese says:

    You didn’t report it was the wrong people and home. And the person they were looking for was in jail. Report facts 💯

  • D T says:

    Again and Again !!!!! Whats next for black mixed people who feel that they would be judged for the good work they do and not judged by the saying that If the guy is black and has nice cars or doesn’t work but has nice things …then oh well he must be a drug dealer… better yet all black men must be drug dealers and you know that’s a definite NO… By them calling 911 they should have had a immediate passive radio call to stand down wrong address… These officers need to be held accountable because its a shame to have them get training by our military and still continue to make the same mistakes…. While we are still in the Middle-East our US Armed Service Branch’s don’t even continue to murder innocents people just to do it….. This strikes a cord in everyone of color, mixed, multiracial, because this is someone that worked with them and they still didn’t protect them or at least do their homework….. I know their are Police officers that are out there doing the right thing, to them they get the praises because they wouldn’t let this happen on their watch… If it did they would try to deescalate the situation before it went bad…or went over the plan of engagement….not about the rules , they suppose to know that by now….its about strategic planning and watching their drone footage and camera, and hidden camera surveillance don’t need to say more…. Much at their disposal to use to confirm targets….. Common sense…Some have it some don’t… Someone dropped the ball on this one…… A shame… She was one of you….. Same team…..and a woman….Its called protect you’re team!!! THE HATE HAS TO STOP!!!!!!
