    Police have murdered another unarmed black person. This time the cop shot into the persons house and killed a person living there.

    'That's murder': Fort Worth police officer shoots woman inside her home

    After a white police officer responding to a report of a house door standing open killed a black woman inside her own home on Saturday, an attorney for the woman’s family said the officer had not had time to perceive a threat before shooting.

    “You didn’t hear the officer shout, ‘Gun, gun, gun,’” attorney Lee Merritt said after viewing video taken from a Fort Worth officer’s bodycam during the shooting death of Atatiana Jefferson, 28.

    “He didn’t have time to perceive a threat. That’s murder.”

    Jefferson’s family told KXAS TV she was watching her eight-year-old nephew when she was killed. A neighbor had called a non-emergency line to report that the front door to the house was open.

    In a brief statement to media on Sunday, Lt Brandon O’Neil of Fort Worth police said the officer would be interviewed on Monday by the department’s major case unit.

    “The officer observed a person through a rear window in the residence and fired a shot at that person,” O’Neil said. “The officer did not announce that he was a police officer prior to shooting. What the officer observed and why he did not announce ‘police’ will be addressed as the investigation continues.

    So what's the excuse going to be this time?

    The cop will get a few months in jail. That is the going rate for a black life in Texas.

    This is just one of many reasons it’s a shit hole.

    Whatever it was, she deserved it. Still, although perhaps not involved in this particular case, we know the following:

    WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND other domestic extremists maintain an active presence in U.S. police departments and other law enforcement agencies. A striking reference to that conclusion, notable for its confidence and the policy prescriptions that accompany it, appears in 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.

    Although these right-wing extremists have posed a growing threat for years, federal investigators have been reluctant to publicly address that threat or to point out the movement’s longstanding strategy of infiltrating the law enforcement community.

    Another tragedy that will turn into a 3-ring circus for political reasons.

    I always reserve judgement until we get all the details.

    So many of these stories offer bogus details like in the travon martin case or mike brown case...let's wait & have a clue before casting stones.

    Is there a way to tell the police you don't want them to come if a neighbor calls for a welfare check? If a neighbor is worried about me, I wouldn't mind them contacting one of my friends or family to come check on me, but I don't want the cops to be surprised to see me in my own home, and kill me. That seems to happen much more than it should.

    White people get ph uked with also. White people get profiled. Not all white people are blond hair and blue eyed swedes. I will say in this day and age if in your home tidy it up a bit and close the doors if something happened to have a cop respond.
