Fort Worth Woman Was Playing Video Game With Her Nephew When Shot by Police

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/u...jefferson.html


Quote:
FORT WORTH — Minutes before she was shot and killed by a Fort Worth police officer, Atatiana K. Jefferson was playing video games in her bedroom with her 8-year-old nephew, a lawyer for her family said Sunday.

Ms. Jefferson, 28, was proud of being the “cool auntie” to her siblings’ children, and had stayed up into the wee hours of Saturday morning with her nephew, Xbox controllers in their hands, according to S. Lee Merritt, the family’s lawyer. But the pair grew concerned around 2:30 a.m., he said, when they heard rustling outside the house and saw flashlights.

A neighbor had called the police after seeing Ms. Jefferson’s front and side doors ajar, a call he later said he regretted making. The two responding officers quietly crept around the dark house, where Ms. Jefferson lived with her mother.

...
Just here is something like this even possible...

Yeah typical police, think life is a computer game and just shoot first and expect a loot box for killing innocent people... So so Sad.

Don't leave your front and side doors ajar when playing videos games late at night.

I thought IQ tests were mandatory to be enrolled in the police force?
Obviously this is not the case ...

Because of so many incidents similar to this (not necessarily connected to video games) people will think and in many cases not call police when they really should.

Worst part of cases like this is that mostly cops get out without any punishment for wrongdoing.
