The killing of George Floyd by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has drawn attention once more to the deaths of unarmed Black men in police custody and prompted a debate on how authorities who are involved in such cases should be treated by the law. With that in mind, here is a look at where the cops who were involved in some of the most egregious examples of police violence against Black men are today, and how the legal system treated them.

TIMOTHY LOEHMANN
Loehmann, the Cleveland police officer who shot and killed Tamir Rice in 2014 after mistaking the 12-year-old’s airsoft gun for a real one, was last in the news in December after a court hearing upheld his firing and also revealed a number of other details about his current life. One of the biggest? That Loehmann was almost rehired as a police officer in another Ohio district, the village of Bellaire, in 2018. The Bellaire police chief had chosen to ignore Loehmann’s history, noting that the rookie cop wasn’t fired by the Cleveland Police Department for shooting and killing Rice, but because he had lied on his application to join the force.

Public outrage caused Loehmann to withdraw his application five days later. It’s unclear what the former officer, now in his early 30s, has been doing for work since.

BETTY JO SHELBY

When Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer Shelby was relegated to desk duty by the department after she was charged with — and later acquitted of — first-degree murder in the September 2016 shooting of Terence Crutcher, she resigned instead, saying in a statement that “sitting behind a desk is not for me.” Two years later, Shelby was working as a deputy sheriff in the Tulsa suburb of Rogers County. And her job had a new responsibility: teaching cops a state-sanctioned course on how to respond “when a police officer is victimized by anti-police groups and tried in the court of public opinion,” as she told a local ABC affiliate at the time. Shelby avoided federal charges last year. Her most recent reported assignment has been in the Rogers County Courthouse operations department.


MICHAEL SLAGER


The former North Charleston, South Carolina, policeman who fatally shot a fleeing Walter Scott in the back, in a video seen around the world in April 2015, is the rare officer to have been convicted. Slager is serving a 20-year sentence, which began in 2017, in a federal prison in Colorado. He hopes to have his case retried and filed court motions in May arguing that his attorneys were “constitutionally ineffective.”

HOWIE LAKE II
In September, Lake said he would no longer appeal the three-day suspension he received for his role in the 2016 death of Alton Sterling outside a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, convenience store. Yes, his appeal process over what he believed was a wrongful three-day suspension lasted three years after the incident in which Lake’s partner, Blane Salamoni, fired six rounds into Sterling, who was selling CDs outside the store. (Sterling had been accused of waving a handgun, although the gun remained in his pocket for the entirety of his encounter with the police.) While Salamoni was fired, the department retained Lake, arguing that he tried de-escalation tactics, which Salamoni did not.

MARK RINGGENBERG AND DUSTIN SCHWARZE

The George Floyd killing is not the first time that Minneapolis police have been involved in a high-profile killing. In November 2015, Schwarze fatally shot Jamar Clark, a 24-year-old Black man, with a handgun pressed against his mouth According to the testimony of Schwarze and his partner, Ringgenberg, Clark was reaching for Ringgenberg’s gun. Several eyewitnesses claimed that Clark was handcuffed at the time, although forensic evidence in the department’s internal investigation suggested that the handcuffs were actually on the ground, not on Clark. Both officers remain with the Minneapolis Police Department.

Last year, Ringgenberg was testifying in court again — this time as a witness supporting his colleague Mohamed Noor, who was facing a murder trial of his own after shooting 911 caller Justine Ruszczyk in July 2017. Noor was convicted.

We all can show you many black Americans who aren't living in poverty. Poverty is a choice these days except for the rarest of circumstances, like you're underage and can't work or too damn old to do anything.

The vast, vast majority of people living for decades in poverty are poor because they make poor choices. It really is that simple.
Are you 12?

I know that black people in the US get a worse deal than any other group but surely police brutality is the primary issue here?

I mean, they generally murder many whites, asian and hispanics each year too. So, surely it’s wiser to include everyone and hit the whole thing together?

This is where you lost me. I'll be super clear on this. If you're poor in America you could always choose to do better. Can't choose better in communism. Can't choose better in feudalism or fascism or aristocracies.

You're only born into wealth under those circumstances.
How does minimum wage stop people from doing better?

A decent wage allows you to save, and to provide for your family, which let's them give their kids a better start.

We have the minimum wage in the UK and we still have social mobility.

I’m with you totally. I’ve never really understood the opposition to a minimum wage.

There‘s nothing more ridiculous or degrading than working full time and having to claim benefits just to survive.

The whole argument about businesses going under is absolute crap. They may have to raise prices a little but if the service is there, people will pay it. Anyway, if it’s mandatory, everyone is on a level playing field.

You're hiding in your home like a little pussy hoping the police and military protect you.



It was all good a week ago when you were trying to assault female governor's, but now not one of you fatass larping Paul blart mall cops can be seen.

It's not your fault you're a dumbass pathetic boomer, your entire generation was fucked from enhaling paint chips and asbestos. You're literally walking cromagnons.

100%

in my experience small business(which is what would supposedly be affected worst by min wage increases) already give a shit about staff and care to make sure they are paid a fair amount.

i never worked for a large corporation(and hopefully never will) but they seem to be the ones paying absolute shit, and they could change that easily.

I thought you were bitching about having been "dispersed" by gas and rubber bullets?

And the last time you clowns went H2H with right-wing extremists, you went crying back to law enforcement and begged them to label everyone who stood up to you as "terrorists."

It took about 20 of you pansies just to bring down a single old man, and the MAGA kid owned your asses by strolling through your so-called "taken over" city without a single fuck given.
