Flynn said that he decided to terminate Manney based on an Internal Affairs investigation, and while he would not say whether the former officer should face criminal charges, he did acknowledge “errors of judgment, but no malice” in Manney’s handling of the confrontation. “There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes,” he said”

Let me repeat what the Police Chief Flynn said

"There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes"

Making a mistake, that took the life on an innocent unarmed mad. We must hold ourselves accountable because the cops don’t know when to not shoot an unarmed man

Here’s your Milwaukee Police Department

"he was sleeping in a threatening way!"?
'he was snoring too loud!”?
What the fuck?! Aside from the obvious reason that he was black and you apparently can get away with shooting people as long as they are black; what reason did you give for shooting an unarmed, sleeping man?!

Because a starbucks employee feeling threatened by a sleeping man is more important than the man actually being threatening

This photo won the “Pulitzer Prize” in 1994 by Kevin Carter. The picture shows a sick and hungry child crawling to the UN food camp located about half a mile away. The vulture is waiting for the kid to die so it can eat him. This was a very shocking picture and no one knows what became of the kid, not even Kevin Carter.
We often see such strong pictures and wonder why the photographer didn’t do anything to help. Kevin Carter got a lot hate for not helping the child and leaving as soon as he took the photograph. Three months after he received the Pulitzer Prize, he committed suicide because of depression.
I will never understand why he left the kid there and walked away. 

me neither.

He just left a kid to die. And won a fucking Pultizer Prize.
A Journalism prize. Because he took a picture of a dying child and did not even lift a finger.
He was exonerated, applauded by people because he took a picture of a dying black child — and the worst part, the worst part was that this action — had he done this with a white child in E. Europe… he would have been torn apart as a photographer. RIPPED. HIS CAREER WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER.
But leave a black child today, Pultizer Prize.
