Wherre’s the Casey?
So you weren’t a witness?
Palmdale PD waited 4 days to report this officer-involved shooting to the transparency board
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is the agency that patrols Palmdale.
This isn’t completely true. The call was actually for a welfare check and he ran from the cops, they chased him and shot him. Get it straight. Then they took his stuff for whatever reason to cover themselves.
lol, yes it is. Everett has a documented history of domestic violence. I don’t trust the cops, but this guy was a repeat offender, as well as a racist piece of [removed]. Glad he’s dead
Were you a witness?
I was. this is absolutely the case. He was depressed. He was a potential danger to himself but had given no indication of being a danger to anyone else. the police were called by his wife to try to help him and they [removed] this up royally. Anyone telling you otherwise is trying to muddy the water and justify this cowardly failure of the Palmdale police. They will get what is coming to them, that I assure you.
It is too common (yet disturbing) that law enforcement has the power to manufacture evidence as a means to validate reckless deescalation if not homicide in many scenarios. This immunity denies the humanity of those whom should be rehabilitated and not fatally apprehended. Rhetoric breeds insensitivity as a means to make villains of people whom are no longer able to defend themselves. It’s a disgusting trend.
your candor is comforting. I’m glad some people understand this. Ev was a good man and a loving father and husband. He struggled wjth a lot but he did not deserve to be murdered by a gang of cowards.
