A Las Vegas police officer has been given a paid vacation after murdering an unarmed man during a drug raid.
The police have tried to justify the slaying claiming that the victim made “a furtive movement.”
“It was during the course of a warrant and as you all know, narcotics warrants are all high-risk warrants,” Capt. Patrick Neville of Metro’s Robbery-Homicide Bureau said Friday night.
What Captain Neville failed to mention is that the only reason “narcotics” warrants are “high-risk” is that police typically enforce them by dressing up like the Gestapo, breaking into homes without warning in the middle of the night, throwing deadly grenades, pointing guns at anything with a pulse, and verbally and physically abusing anyone who happens to be inside. Maybe if the trigger-happy sociopaths who conduct these sorts of raids thought up less reckless ways to enforce the law or, better yet, stopped arresting people for victimless crimes, they wouldn’t have to keep making up lame excuses for murdering people.
Don’t expect any justice in this case because the officer responsible has murdered someone else in the past and gotten away with it.
