Free Travis Magill: Arrested for Self Defense vs. Police Brutality

An anonymous reader shared the content below, regarding a case in which a man was involved in an altercation between himself and two employees of the Corpus Christi Police Dept., via the Cop Block Submissions page. Although, Travis Magill was subsequently charged with two counts of attempted murder as a result, a dashcam video that has since been released “calls into question some of the accusations against him.

Individuals Involved: Officer Michael Scott Goodman, Officer Amador Gonzalez, at least one additional unidentified Officer.
Outfit: Corpus Christi (TX) Police Department
Phone: (361) 886-2600

Could you please visit, like, and share the Facebook page: Free Travis Cody Magill? Travis is like a big brother to me always has been and he is innocent the officer should be in jail not Travis. He acted in self defense. The officer who caused all this just got off probation for shooting and killing a man in his own home. He needs to have his badge taken away and to be put in jail!!

Travis was walking home one day from helping a family friend out working on his car. His family lives in the country club area, which is a really nice area of town, and when he was walking he had been stopped by a officer. The officer asked what he was doing in the area and Travis told him. The officer then said they have had reports of burglaries in the area and that he was going to have to search him. Travis asked, “am I being detained?” and the officer said, “no.” So, he continued walking and the officer again said he has to search him. Travis then finally consented and allowed the officer to search him. Well, as you can see in the dash cam video on the Facebook page, a second officer pulls up.

At that time, Travis has his hands in front of him and he is calm and complying. However, this second officer who pulls up (if you look closely at the reflection on the other police car he pulls up behind) jumps out and then fires at Travis shooting him three times in the leg, chest, and hip area, for no reason. And he wouldn’t stop shooting, so Travis ran and hid behind a tree. Then the officer ran and got a shotgun, so Travis ran to the police cruiser and as he was running he was shot again. So, he got into the police cruiser and ducked and the officer blew out the windows and everything with a shotgun (he just wouldn’t stop shooting).

By this point, Travis had been shot three times and was in fear for his life. So, he took off to go get help (a hospital), but he kept drifting in and out of consciousness and he finally passed out and the vehicle crashed. Another officer caught up with him and pulled him out of the vehicle onto the ground and started kicking him in his ribs nonstop. Now Travis has problems breathing and pain in his ribs ever since. He is just now starting to get feeling back in his leg. He was in a wheelchair and they didn’t think he would ever be able to walk again. This was filmed and put online by a pedestrian, but only for a brief time. Now its gone and we cant find the video anywhere. We think the police department scared them into taking if down. And all this cause this second officer pulled up and pulled his gun out for no reason and shot him.

As you can see in the video, the situation was already under control. It’s this second officer who started all of this mess. This second officer also just got off probation for shooting and killing a man in his own home!! He should be in jail and have his badge taken away he should be in jail not Travis. This is still an open investigation and this man is still working and they even gave him an award. Travis is a good kid and was at the wrong place at the wrong time. He is an amazing person. Another reason they stopped him is cause they said he looked like he didn’t belong. Basically, he looked too poor to be in that area.

They said Travis shot both the cops when in reality Travis shot at the ground one time trying to get away. They also said he shot them three times, but only two of Travis’s shell casing were found they shot each other by mistake and the officers and are blaming him. Now they are charging him with two counts of attempted capital murder and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. His bond is $750,000 and we are trying to get the word out about his case and what really happened. His trial is next month something needs to be done about the police here. They are out of hand. They arrested and beat up a 16 year old boy walking home not that long ago. They stopped him for no reason . And they arrested a man and beat him up so badly that he was in so much pain he hung himself in his cell. They are out of control and as for Travis he was just walking home. I don’t know if you can help us, but I had to give it a shot.

Thank you for reading this! (See below video for additional related links.)

    One question, Pete:

    “At that time, Travis has his hands in front of him and he is calm and complying. However, this second officer who pulls up (if you look closely at the reflection on the other police car he pulls up behind) jumps out and then fires at Travis shooting him three times in the leg, chest, and hip area, for no reason.”

    There has to be a little more to the story. If the Officer just got out and started firing at him AFTER the initial officer had “everything under control,” something is amiss here.

    Please update us, Pete. We need more info.

      MIKEY:
      W O W !!!!
      You actually made a good point.
      My question is…..that you clearly DONT see the officer jump out and start shooting. You see a pause after the officer gets out and a shot at the heacier officer that thankfully misses (as you can see the passenger side window of the police SUV get shot out.

      Obviously more to the story as this story isn’t even being told correctly.

      Well done Mikey. Go have another beer.

        Police SUV? No such thing. I looked it up on Google. Oh, wait, it’s you that says stupid ass shit like that and then tries to spin it back on the other person, not me. Oops.

        • RaymondbyEllis January 9, 2015 at 2:25 am #

          In Phoenix metro, many if not most of the police vehicles are Chevy Tahoes. I believe they are SUVs. I doubt Phoenix metro is an outlier.

          I would call the police SUV in the video an SUV, but I repeat myself.

        I’ve watched the video, 4 times now, and listened to the news report, which was a balanced report given the video. It balanced both sides.

        You clearly can’t see the officer get out and shoot because no camera is pointed at him and the reflection isn’t there (why would it be? this isn’t a CSI science fiction). I thought of trying to run this through an audio application I have because there were “sounds” similar to the sound of the gunshot that pierced the window of the police SUV but that would be an exercise in futility.

        It’s very possible, given the last glimpse we see of Travis before the gunfire seemed to be of nothing but a search, that the second officer misunderstood what he saw and started the violence. According to the news report, Magill was showing Goodman that he had a gun as Gonzalez pulled up and then started firing. Gonzalez did not talk to Goodman before firing because he had to make a split-second decision. Very possible.

        If that is true, the “heavier” officer, his name is Goodman, will certainly say so. His PD will force him to be honest. Magill still screwed up by firing back, but the honesty forced by Goodman’s PD will help the family over a wrongfull death.

        Reminds me of a joke: you know the difference between a good decision and a split-second decision? Yeah, the punch line’s easy.

        • t January 10, 2015 at 11:39 pm #

          Ray:
          “Could be”. Wow. Insightful. Could be anything.
          Yours is almost the brilliance of 3r and his “fact that there is a possibility” mess.

          Somkne further up made a comment about it being illogical that this guy would wait pull out a gun and shoot at an officer that’s was only a foot away.
          Just stupiity from the foolish.

          Most “gunfights” take place at less than 9″. Most are about the distance of a car hood width.

          And lots of officers are assaulted when searching someone. Why? Because the suspect panics when the realize the police are about to find something….that they don’t want found.

          So….based o. What we can see of this and what “facts” that the author puts forward….what seems like a reasonable understanding of this situation.

          – We see the suspect and an officer very briefly as the camera catches them. It looks like the officer is positioned the conduct either a frisk or a search.

          – We also see movement of the dash camera. It rocks back and forth several times as it catches the movement of the car as the officer moves around inside
          That’s kinda key as it destroys the authors assertion that the second officer jumped out of the car and started shooting at the suspect. That clearly didn’t happen

          – We see what is presumably the officer who exited the car that recorded the video come into view as he backs up on a shooting stance.

          – We see a window on the passenger side of the police SUV being shit out as the glass flies out and away from the vehicle.

          – We see that same officer returning Fire at the subject who presumably shot at him

          – We See that same officer move off to the cameras left and out of sight.

          – We see the suspect limping towards the police vehicle and get inside.

          – We See the rear window of that SUV shit out….in what appears to be shots from Outside the vehicle

          Now….based on what is den and what the authors tells you….is it more reasonable to conclude that:
          • Like
          The authors suggest….the second officer jumped out of his car upon his arrival
          And immediately tried to murder this suspect (whoch clearly didn’t happen as I pointed out above)
          OR
          • That the suspect panicked as the discovery of his concealed weapon was imminent and fearing arrest he decide to assault and attempt to kill the officers?

          Now….I know that tou and logic are strangers. But when you can eliminate the authors as they clearly did. It occur….is it not reasonable to therefore beleive that this suspect did indeed attempt to murder these officers?

          • Pw4x3r January 11, 2015 at 9:21 am #

            “is it not reasonable to therefore believe”
            What is this? Hypocrite day? Seriously??? After bashing me twice now??? LoL!!!!!! Fucking dumbass piece of shit mother fucker!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are nothing but guesses and opinions yourself, bitch, except yours are in defense of an agency guilty of every crime under the book. LOL!!!!!!!!!

            3r:
            Wow. Stupid much?

            So…let’s see what you are on about.
            – I go through this step by step.
            – I take into account what can be seen and the info from the author.
            – I base an educated opinion on what the information that is available….that is REASONABLE.
            – YOU still wanna stick to your nonsensical “the fact that there is a possibility” mess. BTW…..you never answered why…by your “logic”….it couldn’t have been a mafia hit man on the grassy knoll?

          • RaymondbyEllis January 12, 2015 at 6:01 am #

            Uhm, no.
            1. Most isn’t all, and you can’t prove something by most. And “lot’s” doesn’t prove that was the case this time. In fact, the story is that he was showing the gun, giving it up, at the time the second officer pulls up.
            2. Here’s when and where you blow your entire argument: “We see what is presumably the officer who exited the car that recorded the video come into view as he backs up on a shooting stance.” If that was the second officer, then the dash cam continues to shake, it’s still shaking when the shotgun is fired, without an officer in the vehicle. So either the second officer was in his vehicle, and it continued to shake because of him, or he was out of it taking a shooting stance and it continued to shake.. The video is only from the vehicle of the second officer. Presumably doesn’t apply. I do understand how you confused the issue.
            3. The first officer, your second officer, is returning fire before the windows of the first vehicle are shot out (not the back window by shotgun). Look closely at the video and the hands of the first officer.

          • RaymondbyEllis January 12, 2015 at 6:11 am #

            Splitting the comment.
            4. So, given that the dash cam continues to shake throughout the video, the second officer must have handed his shotgun to the first officer while staying in the vehicle. Given that you never see the second officer, you don’t, then that’s as good an assumption as any you’ve made.. Why would the second officer stay in his vehicle the whole time?
            5. If the second officer was the one returning fire by “We see what is presumably the officer who exited the car that recorded the video come into view as he backs up on a shooting stance.”, then he did get out early. But it wasn’t the second officer, you made it to be because that would support your argument. No one I can see here presumed he was the second officer but you. No one presumed the second cop would ever be seen in his dash cam.

            Now here’s another scenario as to why the dash cam kept shaking. The second cop arrived, saw the gun, got out of his vehicle and against the door, and fired. The first cop backed up and started firing because, well, a gun went off. The second cop was still against his door. Then the second cop reached into his vehicle to get the shotgun. The entire time the dash cam would still shake because the second cop was still interacting with the vehicle. It’s a whole lot better than “We see what is presumably the officer who exited the car that recorded the video come into view as he backs up on a shooting stance.” because that is nonsense. It was the first cop not the second.

            And you know, the guy that pulled his gun out to give to the officer, he just wanted to go home for dinner.

            Given your egregious error, or attempt to obfuscate, going home to dinner applies to everyone in this little play.

          • t January 12, 2015 at 6:52 am #

            Ray:
            So…..lets get this.
            YOU…..by your….analysis….are sayin pig that the second officer never exited the vehicle? If that’s the case…..there must have been a third officer…..because the one we see being shot at ISNT the one with the suspect. Hmm.

            But…..lets continue past that….thinking error on your part.

            1. Never said MOST is ALL. Never said it was proof of anything. My point….which clearly escaped your grasp….is what is more likely to have happened based on what we see. What is more reasonable to beleive.

            2. Video only from the second officer. Quite right….unless we go with your 3rd officer theory. But I had to write it like that because of the idiots like your pal reallydumb who thinks he’s always clever.

            3.So….now it’s the first officer….the one searching the suspect….that shot at the other officer? So….are you saying that this is a “blue on blue” crime where 1 officer wanted to kill another?

            Somewhere in that mess is something about the first officers hands and and the suspect showing his gun. Hmmm. Trying to imagine that. Did it go like…”hey officer…check out my really cool gat. See, it works and everything”. Yeah.
            Anyway. The first officer…look at his hands….and look at the suspects.
            What an educated eye sees is a suspect with his hands out in front him in protest. His whole body movement/position is that. The first officer appears to be grabbing him and there is the first hint of a struggle just as they disappear from view.

            But we don’t know that. That’s just almost 19 years of dealing with suspects in street encounters just like this one.
            My point was that the authors story and allegations are nonsense….as shown by the video. Clearly the second officer DIDNT arrive and jump out of his car and immediately start firing.

            And again….I know you struggle with this….but what is more reasonable? Like I made fun of 3r and his “fact that there is a possibility” garbage…..how can you prove that there wasn’t a Cuban hitman on the grassy knoll? In you TV look at the world….that’s just as plausible as the officer jumping out of his car and shooting at this kid for no reason.

            Is it not a more reasonable thought that he started fighting with the officers because he did not want them to discover the gun he was carrying? Or are you gonna stick with the “hey officer, check out my gat” idea?

          • RaymondbyEllis January 12, 2015 at 8:25 am #

            I was replying to the totality of your comment. The 3rd officer is just bullshit you needed to make up. There was no third officer, nothing I wrote even implied it.

            You did two things that blew your argument in your earlier comment: you claimed the movement of the dash cam was proof the second officer did not get out and start the fire fight, and then you wrote that it was presumably the second officer taking the shooting stance. One, the dash cam shakes throughout the video, two, it was clearly the first officer that retreated towards his vehicle. Look at the video.

            Worse, you take a pat down and turn it into an altercation, by your “trained eye”. I stopped the video by second as best I could, the officer is moving around Travis, Travis isn’t doing anything other than standing. That’s at 6 seconds. The first officer moves again into view at around 22 seconds. That’s 18 seconds. That’s a lot of time even if I subtract 4 seconds for the cop to move from the sidewalk to near his vehicle. And the dash cam shakes throughout the entire video, the shaking of which was clear proof to you that in those less than 18 seconds the second officer couldn’t mistake what was happening.

            “Somewhere in that mess is something about the first officers hands and and the suspect showing his gun.” This is so fucking tiresome when you can’t keep the simplest thing straight. I pointed you to look at the first officer’s hands regarding your sequence of events. You have the second officer being the one in the shooting stance, you have the windows of the SUV being shot out, then the officer returning fire. If you look at the video closely as the officer, who isn’t the second officer, backs up it appears he is already returning fire. Your sequence is wrong.

            Again, if the second officer misread the situation and stayed at his vehicle, firing behind his door, and reaching in for his shotgun, the vehicle would continue to shake as seen by the dash cam and it does. You made the argument about the shaking dash cam. If you drop it now your first comment evaporates.

            You also made up the third officer. You also made up the first officer shot at the second. Only you did that, but you did knock them down in a condescending way. And clearly the dash cam continued to shake.

            BTW, why would you call a officer mistaking a scene a purposeful attempt to murder? I didn’t. Officers shoot people reaching in their car to get ID, or holding cellphones, were they trying to murder them?

          • t January 12, 2015 at 1:00 pm #

            Ray:
            My comments were to 3r and the author. You decided to try and change the narrative of it more

            My flippant comment to 3r about how…..under his idea/comment “the FACT that there is a possibility” which I correctly repeated to you about an unknown gunman on the grassy knoll….is still just as likely when you use what you both would call logic.

            I’m was simple and quick look at would is a reasonable idea of what occurred. I read NO other sources. I just watched the video and read the authors tale of what occurred. I then read the retarded comments by the CBets.

            The idea of “the fact that there is a possibility”…..which you echoed….is ridiculousness. Hence the grassy knoll shooter question.

            Yes…..absolutely anything could have happened. But is it reasonable to beleive that there was a hit man on the grassy knoll that shit here?

            It’s why you struggle with the concept of “what is a reasonable man”. You’ve questioned that here in the past. You clearly don’t fit that bill (as would few of any CBers). Why? Because reasonableness escapes your grasp.

            When j write that there is the beginnings of a altercation…..it’s based again on years of street level encounters.
            When I see the suspect with his hands out like this…..with his elbows tucked in….it
            Looks like he is objecting AND touching/checking that the item he doesn’t want discovered is still there.
            BTW….that’s fun to watch. You can almost always tell people who are carrying a weapon as they will constantly it. Same goes for dope. Can’t keepmtheir hands off of it.

            But if you think that it’s reasonable that this guy….who presumably the police were called to investigate for some reason….that he just really presented the officers with his gun in the scenario of “hey check out my gun”….which is what the author is selling you….you go ahead and think that’s reasonable.

          • RaymondbyEllis January 14, 2015 at 10:56 pm #

            “My comments were to 3r and the author. You decided to try and change the narrative of it more” You’ve commented twice specifically to me and have made unsustainable arguments. Too late to make that excuse.

            It would be nice if you would try to reply to my arguments as I do to yours. I will have to live with your pointless shotgun approach of extraneous arguments. So, going back…

            “We also see movement of the dash camera. It rocks back and forth
            several times as it catches the movement of the car as the officer moves
            around inside That’s kinda key as it destroys the authors assertion
            that the second officer jumped out of the car and started shooting at
            the suspect. That clearly didn’t happen.” Yet you ignored that the video continued to shake throughout, that it could shake just as easily by the second officer (there was no third) being out but against the vehicle. You made that the fulcrum for all your arguments when it isn’t “clearly that didn’t happen”. This is why we have CDLs, so that the myopia (would tunnel-vision be a better description?) of government employees wouldn’t be what clearly or clearly didn’t happen. Would you like to maintain that the vehicle could only shake, as reflected in the dash cam, by someone in the car?

            “It’s why you struggle with the concept of “what is a reasonable man”. You’ve questioned that here in the past.” Yes, because judges and lawyers struggle with it too because it’s an phrase with no hard definition, it’s an artificial range where even the range isn’t defined except by going back to a “reasonable man”. The reasonable man would call it a tautology, the cynic, who is also a reasonable man, an artifice. Tell me exactly what a “reasonable man” thinks on any subject.

            Continued….

          • RaymondbyEllis January 14, 2015 at 11:37 pm #

            Replying to myself to continue my reply to t.
            “When I see the suspect with his hands out like this…..with his elbows tucked in….it
            Looks like he is objecting AND touching/checking that the item he doesn’t want discovered is still there.” You have the psychology degree, tell me exactly the true meaning of what you wrote as to what you saw from a psychologist’s stand point. BTW, I saw his hands away from what you would call touching/checking, but I haven’t created the same patterned thinking you have. I also saw the first officer checking with one hand while controlling with the other.

            Oh, I don’t think its reasonable that Travis said “hey check out my gun”, it is reasonable that he said “I have a gun” or “I’ll give you my gun”. But that’s only about what he might have said from the post. Not about your experience telling you what couldn’t possibly happen.

            “The officer asked what he was doing in the area and Travis told him. The
            officer then said they have had reports of burglaries in the area and
            that he was going to have to search him…” From that you go here “….who presumably the police were called to investigate for some reason….”, turning it into someone else is responsible for the cop’s stop. What made you think that? It’s not possible that the cop on patrol saw something he didn’t like about Travis?

            BTW, the video continued to shake and the second cop staying in his vehicle as the clear cause isn’t clear and isn’t the only explanation. If the post is accurate, it wasn’t the cause or the explanation. You however weren’t accurate because the vehicle could shake with the second cop in it or out of it.

    I think if you watch this you can see bullets flying out of cops car. I think this guy started shooting at the cops first. I could be wrong

      Tom:
      No….you appear to be right.

      • Pw4x3r January 11, 2015 at 9:17 am #

        Yep. It appears cameras are limited to their lense’s field of view. Holy fuck, who would have thought?

        • t January 11, 2015 at 9:21 pm #

          3r:
          You wouldn’t have thought. Oh….maybe the “fact” that there is a possibility that the passengers side window was shattered by a bullet escaped you.

    • Pw4x3r January 11, 2015 at 9:16 am #

      Magic, because the camera doesn’t actually show any possible view of a direction OTHER than the cops cars……

  3. Pw4x3r January 6, 2015 at 7:16 pm #

    What looks to be fact here: This person was in fear for their life and doing everything in their power to escape imminent execution by police.
    What doesn’t sound logical: A person having a police officer searching them attempt to pull a gun out AND shoot them while they are standing one foot away.

    • RAD January 7, 2015 at 10:05 pm #

      Where’d the gunshots go? Did the cops tamper with the evidence and edited them out of the audio track for the vid. If so why?

  4. JC January 6, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    He was shot and arrested for trying to kill two officers. He can rot in jail.

    Not too mention he was carrying a gun.

      Your inability to decipher anything is pretty funny. “The cops said it, so it’s true!” Thank fucking god everyone isn’t as fucking stupid as you. I will repeat my comment from below, What doesn’t sound logical: A person having a police officer searching them attempt to pull a gun out AND shoot them while they are standing one foot away.
      It does sound logical that he told the cop he was pulling out a gun he had on him, and cop #2 started shooting the fuck out of him, requiring him to defend himself…..
      But the cops said it, so go ahead and obey. Let’s not even analyze all the data… since we don’t even have it…. You’re just wishing for one of them to force you to bend over and spread em aren’t you?

      He probably will rot in jail because of this….. It’s just a pity you aren’t there with him.

        JC hates any media that doesn’t provide the cops’ version as fact.

        • JC January 7, 2015 at 10:12 am #

          No, I look for the real reason why this guy is locked up and I posted two links that support my statements. It is more like you hate the fact that I posted two links that are reliable instead of a copblock fantasy story.

          • Pw4x3r January 7, 2015 at 7:32 pm #

            The “real” reason the police are *using* to put him behind bars. Interesting how time and time again on all types of cases it police have been proven to have lied about their encounters after the fact…. LoL…..

          • JC January 8, 2015 at 10:08 am #

            No, those are your words. The guy was being investigated for home burglaries in the area he was found. He had a concealed weapon on him. He acted like an idiot and was shot. He is very soon going to be on trial for attempted murder. He is where he needs to be.

      • JC January 7, 2015 at 10:11 am #

        He shot at police officers. The links I posted stated clearly what he did. Post a real link that backs up your statements. Obviously you can’t because you just ranted your statements. Why would I be there with him? I didn’t break the law shooting at police officers not to mention he was being checked out because there have been burglaries in the area he was hanging out in with a gun.

        • Pw4x3r January 7, 2015 at 7:29 pm #

          The links clearly sate *what the officers are saying happened,* which again, cop-dick-sucker, means shit.

          Factually, the possibility exists that the event happened exactly as I suggested, where he was pulling out the gun to show the cop searching him and cop 2 went off the wall. You can say ANYTHING you want. Nothing changes the FACT that this is a possibility. The cops version of the story is NOT necessarily fact. Nothing you say and no fucking link can change that either.

          I like how you try to add “with a gun” in there, as though that means anything to people who live in Texas or Arizona, for example… lol…… you’re a pussy spreading propaganda when, in reality, if you are a PO, you own a gun, and would indeed have one on you……

          • t January 8, 2015 at 3:24 pm #

            “The FACT that this is a possibility”

            Wow. Brilliant.

          • Pw4x3r January 9, 2015 at 9:29 pm #

            Yep. It’s that simple. You and JC pretend there are no other possibilities in existence because “the police said it.” Get bent.

          • t January 10, 2015 at 2:13 pm #

            3r:
            Well…..in your reasoning:
            The FACT that there is a possibility that this never happened at all.
            The FACT that there is the possibility that is was the mafias shooter on e grass knoll that did it.
            The FACT that there is the possibility that Bigfoot did it while trying to snap into a slimjim.

            By your illogical reasoning….it’s a fact that there is the possibility that any of those scenarios happened here.

            That….is CBer learning and reason at its best. Boy…your are brilliant. A thinker for the ages.

          • Pw4x3r January 11, 2015 at 9:14 am #

            Remove the penis from your mouth. The police officer who’s cock you are gnawing on has actually had enough and would like it removed so he can go shoot some people and make up some lies so you can defend him about it.
            I understand you lack the mental power to think critically…. so there’s nothing more to be said here.

          • t January 11, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

            3r:
            So…..I’m right them. Ok. You could have just said that.

        • keepitreal January 8, 2015 at 7:12 pm #

          Nobody cares what you post, slaps. Lies, more lies, and a touch of sick ass animal abuse.

          • JC January 8, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

            You must because you are always responding to me.

  5. Common Sense January 7, 2015 at 7:39 am #

    Actually it makes no difference “who fired first.” Once he skinned the gun, that was it. And why, in fact was Travis concealing a pistol? I notice the article leaves that part out.

    Travis can enjoy prison.

  6. Elim January 8, 2015 at 6:20 pm #

    Another bullshit story. This kid was casing a house for a burglary, and was happened upon by a cop.

  7. JD January 8, 2015 at 11:47 pm #

    This is a bullshit story. Normally, I am behind the CB movement when applied properly and legally and I’m all for police transparency, but this story is completely false. This moron was a strung out tweeker that was looking to break into/rob a house, specifically my mother in law’s home. I won’t delve into specifics since the trial hasn’t passed. But I will say that he was on the right street but got the wrong house. This IS NOT an example of police injustice or brutality, they were defending themselves while doing their job properly. NOTHING MORE
    COPBLOCK please remove this story. It is based on the falsehood and is completely inaccurate. It only does the movement a disservice by supporting criminals that victimize innocents.
    Also, regarding the guy who the cops beat the guy so he hung himself in his cell. That guy killed three people including a child. The chief of CCPD fired and suspended the officers involved for violation of the man’s civil rights
    Our chief of police, stands behind citizens who record the police and all other civil liberties. Thank you Chief Simpson.

    Cop Block loses its credibility when it does things like this. Trying to come to the defense of a strung-out druggie criminal who tried shooting police officers. Unfortunately a major reason why Cop Block has lost any credibility is because it tries to defend people like this, and on top of that it only defends WHITE people like this. I’ve seen a million times videos of a minority getting harassed and “cop blockers” blaming the victim for not obeying the police even when their disobedience is a fraction of what the white cop blockers do. It makes the cop block movement just look like a bunch of racist white guys angry that they’re not getting as much white privledge as they feel they deserve. Go into any city and you see cops stopping and frisking minorities just for walking down the street, yet cop blockers (all white) get their kicks out of purposely going out and taunting cops in desolate rural areas, suburbs, or third-tier cities. The movement loses any credibility when it doesn’t really stand for anything, which by its actions it doesn’t. Regardless of what cop blockers think of themselves, they just come across as kids throwing tantrums rather than knowledgeable adults who are trying to combat true police overreach.
