How does one know an unmarked officer is not just some rightwing vigilante with a gun?
 
How do you hold police accountable if they have no ID?
 
They are creating a situation in which citizens are expected to surrender to any Under Armour-wearing muscle head with gloves and helmet.

Duty to intervene: Floyd cops spoke up but didn’t step in

Minneapolis was among several cities that had policies on the books requiring police officers to intervene to stop colleagues from using unreasonable force, but that didn’t save George Floyd

..........such rules will always run up against entrenched police culture and the fear of being ostracized and branded a “rat.”

 

Power dynamics may have been magnified in the Floyd case because two of the four officers involved were rookies

and the most senior officer on the scene was a training officer, Derek Chauvin, a 19-year police veteran who was seen putting his knee on the back of the black man’s neck despite his cries that he couldn’t breathe........

the rookie officers say both men voiced their concerns about Chauvin’s actions in the moment, they ultimately failed to stop him. Chauvin is now charged with second-degree murder, and his three fellow officers are charged with aiding and abetting.

 

“This is a lesson for every cop in America: If you see something that is wrong, you need to step in,”........

… You’re better off being ostracized by the group than going to prison for murder.”...........

As many as 13 police officers broke into Rep. Bobby Rush’s Chicago campaign offices to lounge on chairs, drink coffee and make popcorn
 
while looters vandalized nearby businesses, Rush and Mayor Lori Lightfoot said

'I can't breathe,' Oklahoma man tells police before dying. 'I don't care,' officer responds.

Newly released video of the 2019 incident
shows officers restraining Derrick Scott, 42, who is heard asking repeatedly for his medicine
 
and saying he can’t breathe............
 

The autopsy said the police response did not result in “fatal trauma” and listed several other “significant” factors that contributed to his death, including physical restraint, recent methamphetamine use, asthma, emphysema and heart disease.

His manner of death was listed as “undetermined.”.........  -_-

FBI's investigation into white supremacist infiltration of police-

".......a classified FBI Counterterrorism Policy Guide from April 2015, obtained by The Intercept. The guide, which details the process by which the FBI enters individuals on a terrorism watchlist, the Known or Suspected Terrorist File, notes that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers,” and explains in some detail how bureau policies have been crafted to take this infiltration into account.........

No centralized recruitment process or set of national standards exists for the 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States, many of which have deep historical connections to racist ideologies. As a result, state and local police as well as sheriff’s departments present ample opportunities for white supremacists and other right-wing extremists looking to expand their power base........

the report noted, singling out “disgruntled military veterans” as likely targets of recruitment. “Right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat.”

The report concluded that “lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent right-wing extremist ideology are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States.”..........

local police departments don’t seem to be doing anything to address the problem. “There’s not even any training now to make state and local police aware of these groups and how they could infiltrate their ranks.”........

After a series of investigations uncovered substantial numbers of extremists in the military, the Department of Defense moved to impose stricter screenings, including monitoring recruits’ tattoos for white supremacist symbols and discharging those found to espouse racist views.

“The military has completely reformed its process on this front,” said the SPLC’s Beirich, who lobbied the DOD to adopt those reforms.......

Reforming police, as it turns out, is a lot harder than reforming the military, because of the decentralized way in which the thousands of police departments across the country operate,

the historical affinity of certain police departments with the same racial ideologies espoused by extremists,

and an even broader reluctance to do much about it. .............

officers have been fired for expressing hateful views — sometimes to be re-hired by other departments, as happens regularly with officers accused of misconduct — some officers have also challenged those dismissals in court. ........

“When somebody holds a belief that indicates that they do not see all Americans are worthy of equal protection under the law, it compromises their ability to be a police officer.”...........

Some of the suggestions regarding police reforms are psychological profiles, more in depth background checks BEFORE anyone are hired by police departments. Having a database of officers fired for misconduct so they can't be rehired somewhere else.

Atlanta police officers call in sick to protest felony murder charge against officer who shot Rayshard Brooks
 
 
<_<

The felony murder charge was over-the-top and done just to appease the masses.      The DA knows this.

Anyhow,  hopefully they can get convictions on lesser charges.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: "Being killed by the police is now the 6th leading cause of death for young men in America,
 
and young Black men are 2.5x more likely than white men to be killed by police,
 
while Black women are 1.4x more likely than white women to be killed by police."
