A small price to pay for a man’s life

Three years after two sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a Council rancher, a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family has been settled for $2.6 million.

Adams County sheriff’s deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland shot and killed Jack Yantis on Nov. 1, 2015, while the rancher was attempting to put down his bull that had been severely injured in a car crash.

    Yantis was executed by these two trigger-happy bastards. They even made sure he bled out before they would let the meds approach. Too bad the taxpayers have to pay for this.

    It took three years to get half-justice?

    Same story, same outcome, over and over. Just change the names and dates. Fucking FBI couldnt find thier dick with a pair of salad tongs.

    And again, taxpayers pay for the mistakes of criminal “law enforcers”, while the perp’s get paid leave and then move on to another unsuspecting jurisdiction to “enforce laws” on other taxpayers. The lawsuits are pointless, unless it gets whomever hired the murderers fired as well.

    Y’all know exactly what ‘justice’ should have been meted out to these JBT’s. And I guess it still could be……

    today’s verdict in charlottesville proved for once and for all there will be no justice for deplorables ever again. America was founded on the principal of ONE justice for all. we now have three tiers of justice. one for regular joes, one for the police, one for the elite. the republic is dead. all we can do now is survive the third world shithole that’s coming on our knees, or die on our feet in a futile effort to revive the dream. either way, we’re dead. i read that stonewall jackson said something to the affect that only when men realize they are already dead can they be relied upon to do the terrible things that will bring victory.

    If there were ‘no evidence of wrong doing’ then why the payout? It couldn’t have been to avoid a lengthy trial since it’s already been multiply years. Seems to me the payout is in itself evidence of wrongdoing.

    And if the payout is evidence of wrongdoing, does qualified immunity protect police misconduct?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
