“Minimum Force” Bill For Police Introduced In New York State Assembly

The list is long, sickening, and a constant reminder that police thugs can murder any “regular” American citizen anytime they want, and have a 99 percent chance of facing zero repercussion.

Mr. Amadou Diallo was 24-years-old, unarmed, and murdered by NYPD thug cops Sean Carroll, Brendan Murphy, Edward McMellon, and Kenneth Boss back in 1999. Though Mr. Diallo was shot 41 times, the police thugs were acquitted of all charges. Mr. Patrick Dorismond was 26-years-old, unarmed, and murdered by NYPD thug cop Anthony Vasquez back in 2000. No charges were filed against the killer. Mr. Timothy Stansbury was 20-years-old, unarmed, and murdered by NYPD thug cop Richard Neri, Jr. back in 2004. No charges were filed against the killer cop. Mr. Sean Bell was 22-years-old, unarmed, and murdered in 2006 by NYPD thug cops. Though Mr. Bell was shot at 50 times, all of the police thugs, including Michael Oliver, who shot 31 of the 50 bullets, were acquitted of all charges. Mr. Omar Edwards, a former NYPD cop himself, was gunned down while off-duty by NYPD thug cop Andrew Dunton last year. Dunton said he “mistook” Mr. Edwards for a “black” “criminal.” Of course, no charges were filed against the killer cop.

All the aforementioned murder victims have only two things in common: they were all classified as “blacks” in this society and thus expendable, and all of them lived in New York City. And the sad part is that this list is far from complete.

Finally, after decades of unabated murder by police thugs, New York State Assemblywoman Annette Robinson, D-Bedford Stuyvesant, introduced Assembly Bill A02952, which has been dubbed the “minimun force” bill by some, and as the “don’t kill bill” by police thugs and their apologists. The bill in part reads:

Regardless of the particular offense which is the subject  of  the arrest  or  attempted escape, the use of deadly physical force is necessary to defend the police officer or peace  officer  or  another  person from  what the officer reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of deadly physical force; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, HE OR SHE USES  SUCH  FORCE WITH  THE  INTENT  TO  STOP, RATHER THAN KILL, A PERSON FROM ESCAPING OR RESISTING ARREST, AND USES ONLY THE MINIMAL AMOUNT OF FORCE NECESSARY TO EFFECT SUCH STOP.

[A] POLICE OFFICER OR PEACE OFFICER WHO KILLS A PERSON BY USE OF A LOADED WEAPON, FOR A PURPOSE OTHERWISE JUSTIFIED BY LAW, WITH THE INTENT TO KILL, RATHER THAN STOP, SUCH PERSON, AND  BEYOND THE MINIMAL AMOUNT OF FORCE NECESSARY TO STOP THE PERSON [IS GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER].

Police thugs, cop suckers, and all their apologists are outraged about the bill. On Policeone.com, the number one cop sucking website out there, commenters are calling the bill “stupid,” “outrageous,” and something that only happens in the movies. The New York Post said the bill “could handcuff the brave officers involved in life-and-death confrontations every day.”

All the anger and outrage from the cop sucking community is because the bill would take away one of the police thugs’ favorite recreational activities (murdering American citizens), and at the same time deprived cop apologists of the opportunity to try and justify on blogs why X-“black” man was shot 50 times.

The “minimum force” bill, which is co-sponsored by Darryl Towns, D-East New York, would be the first instance in American history that I know of that police would actually be held criminally accountable via a state statute for murder. Just like Fox News and other media and government outlets have urged people to read the entire context of SB1070 (Immigration) in Arizona, people need to read this entire bill.

Deadly force would not be illegal under the new law, if it is the “minimal amount of force necessary” to stop a suspect. Shooting someone 50 times would not be justified; shooting an unarmed person would not be justified; in other words, its all common sense stuff. However, cop suckers are simply upset at the fact their heroes will no longer be able to indiscriminately kill people in New York without repercussions.

It will be interesting to see where this bill goes. It is currently being considered by the Assembly, but will likely be revised, if it survives a full vote. Regardless, I applaud Mrs. Robinson and Mr. Town for having the guts to listen to their constituents and introduce this bill. We’ll  keep you updated on any progress or changes to this law, which will save lives and commence integrity which never existed in the NYPD.

    Characterizing police officers as thugs is going to severely limit your appeal. Are there bad cops…yes! Are they all bad…no.

    NYPD cop Oliver was wrong for shooting 31 times. I believe he should have been fired.

    But if Bell and his buddies were not acting drunk fools, they would have avoided their fate. According to facts presented in court, they brought this on themselves.

    I understand your concerns, but if you really cared you would be addressing the root of this problem.
