I don’t know how many of you are aware of the case in Brooklyn, NY were rookie NYPD policeman Peter Liang was convicted Feb 2016 of manslaughter in an ACCIDENTAL shooting that took place in Nov 2014.
What’s interesting about this case is that there were other cases where other pollce officers were involved in INTENTIONALLY killing someone whom they had physical contact but they were NEVER charged.
What happened in this case was an unfortunate accident. His gun was fired accidentally in a dark stairwell. It was not pointed at anyone. The bullet ricocheted and unfortunately struck and killed an innocent bystander.
Considering other cases where policemen were involved in the death of a citizen, was justice applied equally or was this minority policeman being used as a scapegoat to improve public relations with the community?
If you want to learn more about the case before you form an opinion you can go to google.
Thanks for your views on this case. This should be an interesting thread to watch.
