Just 18 hours after Omaha police killed a television crew member and a robber armed with only a pellet gun, Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said his officers were justified in firing their weapons.
The chief said Wednesday he based his initial findings on three eyewitness accounts as well as footage captured by the crew’s cameraman as he sheltered himself from gunfire.“The officers had no choice other than to respond in the manner in which they did,” Schmaderer said during a midafternoon press conference with the mayor and the producers of the “Cops” reality show, whose crew has been in Omaha all summer recording the actions of officers.
I am just surprised this hasn't before, where a COPs crew was seriously injured. I've seen episodes where the crew was involved in traffic accidents and were injured, but nothing like this.
And there is this from the sister of the black thug who fired a realistic looking and sounding air pistol:
What a stupid black bitch who blames the cops for the thug's death but doesn't blame the thug.
She sounds like she is hoping to piggyback off the thug Michael Brown's death after he robbed a store, assaulted an employee and tried to kill the police officer in Missouri.
RIP to the COPs employee and may the thug go to hell, where he belongs.
