https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...ily-investigation-police-shooting/2003519001/ We have another police shooting to discuss that is causing a stir in the news media that loves to report on such things. This month, in Colorado Springs, De’Von Bailey was shot and killed by police. Bailey was shot in the back after police fired 7 shots. The family and activists are seeking an independent prosecutor to send the case to a grand jury. Colorado Springs police were responding to an armed robbery. It is unknown if Bailey was chased from the scene, or if a description was given with Bailey and his cousin fitting the description, which they did. Either way, they fled from police. And Bailey was armed with a handgun. The cousin was arrested. I read one article, mostly about comments from the family lawyer from a high powered firm in Colorado. He claims that the prosecutors have an “abysmal record when it comes to allowing police brutality and murder.” He also claims that the county sheriff’s office doing the investigation is not independent. The cspd says they will release body cam and dash cam footage from both officers as soon as the sheriff’s department finishes their investigation. That would seem to indicate, to me at least, that they are pretty confident in their case. I always check these subjects for criminal records, and I check the officers for previous complaints related to use of force. So far, there is nothing on the officers. Bailey, however, was set to have a trial in January of next year for sexual assault on a child. Also, according to the article, Bailey was named by the victim of the armed robbery. I am waiting for the body cam before I make a final decision, but I also am experienced, from past investigations of my own officers that I am occasionally required to do regarding use of force(standard when force is used even if no allegation is made by suspect) and complaints against them. I also know from experience from instances in which I was involved and viewing my own body cam, or taser cam, that the video will never show exactly what the officer sees because the camera is not as detailed as human vision, nor does it include other senses or experience or knowledge of officer regarding that situation or suspect. Overall, I think the case looks pretty good for the officers, as Bailey was named and had a gun when officers encountered him a short while later, still in the general area. Here are some links including a video from a surveillance camera that captured the shooting, but not the chase. Regardless of outcome of investigation or what the body cam shows, Bailey will be added to the list that activists cite when protesting police action. Link at top of post.
