    Look at that cop who shot a woman in her home through a window in Ft. Worth. He was there for a welfare check. Did not knock on the door. Did not announce it was the police. Peeped in her bedroom window and shot and killed her.

    Yeah, that was just absolutely insane. Either his training was terrible or he was just terrible at his job. He should have knocked, should have identified himeslf, and never should have fired into a house like that. What if he'd hit a child? Crap like that is going to make it so people won't call the police out of fear of being shot or someone getting shot.

    It is already that way in some black communities.

    What some people have not realized is most police departments have a decreasing police force, and being desperate, they have already changed their rules on tattoos, drug usage, minor arrests, etc. They are basically scraping the bottom of the barrel and hiring cops that in no way should be trusted to drive a car, let alone carry a gun.

    This guy broke procedure 4 times on this one call. We have some here that are poorly trained too. Several years ago, I had to explain to one what historical license plates are.

    A young rookie officer responded to a call of a robbery a few towns over. For some reason, the rookie didn't believe what happened, and assumed he was crazy. he actually placed him on a 72 hour, full lock down, mental hold, until a neighbor produced a surveillance video of the crime actually occurring. This will end up costing the PD six figures.

    There was a sheriff's deputy in a neighboring county who burst into a man's home with no warrant and did not say he was a cop. and got shot. They charged the homeowner but a jury found him not guilty. There had been some home invasions in that area. The police found nothing illegal in the home.

    My brother-in-law told me about that last one, Rusty. He doesn't care much for police who violate people's rights or break protocol. He's sympathetic to them fearing for their lives, but also thinks they need better training.

    It's not just black neighborhoods anymore. My best friend lives in a mixed neighborhood and even the white people don't trust the cops. Girl across the street hates them bc they did nothing about a violent assault on her boyfriend that left him blind in one eye & Officer Perkins (the one who sells drugs) planted drugs on her father & lied in court.

    Havasu, it's really sad. It makes it worse because the more bad apples there are, the fewer people want to be cops & work with them so it makes even more of a shortage. They really scraped the bottom where I live bc most of the cops here are just terrible. Some of the are nice, but not terribly competent or actually caring about doing things other than busting people for marijuana that wasn't sold by Officer Perkins.

    Under 42 U.S. Code § 300aa–22 – Standards of responsibility: Paragraph (b), which addresses “Unavoidable adverse side effects; warnings” states, “(1) No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.
