THIS IS THE VIDEO POLICE DIDN'T WANT YOU TO SEE, SHOWING COP SHOOT AT DOG, KILL INNOCENT MOM INSTEAD

In June, the taxpayers of Burlington, Iowa were told that they will be hit with a $2 million bill to pay for a police officer who shot and killed an innocent mother. The tragic scenario was captured on video and the fact that most of that video remained a secret was part of the reason the family received the settlement in the wrongful death suit. However, all that has now changed and the video was released this week.

In May, during a federal court hearing in Davenport, Iowa, officials revealed that the confidential police video—a key piece of evidence in exonerating a cop who killed the innocent mom—did not corroborate the cop’s claims he made before firing the fatal shots that accidentally killed the mother of two.

Now, we have the evidence showing this was true.

The shooting was ruled justified and Hill was not disciplined, according to investigators, because Hill was in fear of his life during the dog attack and therefore did nothing wrong when he fired his weapon multiple times—hitting Steele in her chest, killing her.

Not only does the unreleased video show no bite, but Hill never says that he had been bitten — a direct contrast to what he wrote later in his report, Dave O’Brien, a Cedar Rapids attorney who represents the Steele family, said during the hearing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over quite some time now in this country, innocent people, and their pets, have been gunned down by the police with utter impunity, and evidence of this kind of activity routinely suppressed by governmental agencies.

Rather than the citizens of this town (because they did noting wrong) having to bear the burden of a financially challenging, but no less justified wrongful death suit, it should be paid by the police who do these acts, and their police departments, taking the brunt of the financial burden for restitution.

I think such a change might make it clear that lying by police to justify the murder of an innocent person, and their pets, will not be tolerated in this country anymore, period, end of discussion.
