Baltimore Cop Shot In Head With Own Gun, A Day Before He Was Set To Testify About Cop Corruption.

Submitted by: daegog 10 months ago in News & Politics


In a report from The Washington Post, Baltimore homicide detective fatally shot last week was killed a day before he was due to testify in a high-profile racketeering case against several fellow officers, authorities said Wednesday. 

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Detective Sean Suiter was scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury in a case against eight former members of the city’s elite gun task force accused of shaking down city residents and conspiring with drug dealers. 

Authorities allege that Suiter was not killed over his expected testimony, Davis said, adding that he was shot spontaneously when investigating a report of a suspicious person. It is said that Suiter was killed with his own service weapon at close range following a struggle, Davis said. 

An 18-year veteran of the force and a married father of five, Suiter was shot once in the head last Wednesday and he died a day later, the day he was expected to testify.

My apologies - i have made an error. I googled #nationisinfreefall instead of #nationinfreefall. Lemme tell ya, the results to the former are disturbing to say the least. By making this mistake i ascribed to you many negative connotations that not at all what you intended. For that, i apologize.

Shelworth Well you see my cop fellating friend, when "good cops" do nothing to stop "bad cops", there are, in effect, are no more "good cops".

Why don't you google what happens to whistle blowing cops, they typically do not have sparkling careers after they turn in their wayward workmates.

daegog When you say "there are no more good cops", you are saying "all cops are bad"... Absolute statements are idiocy.

Shelworth I think the complaint is against the culture. Bad cops literally get away with murder because there are no good cops left. Good cops either stay silent and become complicit with the problem or they get bullets in their brains...

Also just a random refutation to your logic, a statement that there are no good x does not mean that all x are bad. They could be ok, neutral or even perfect. The only adjective that is ruled out is "good"

Shelworth It's a bit of hyperbole, don't get so much sand in your vagina.

Shame you aren't as upset about the GOOD cop dying as you are me claiming that there are no good cops left.

daegog I am as outraged as I can be at this point, I know there are bad cops because there are bad people and cops are just people. You are denigrating all cops because you believe the crap spewed out by groups that just make up statistics about cops.  The largest percentage of police officers are trying to keep everyone safe, and protect us from those that would steal from, or physically hurt us. And for your edification I do not have a vagina, sandy or otherwise...

Shelworth "I know there are bad cops because there are bad people and cops are just people."

Well said, but here's the issue a large group people throw this logic out of the window when a cop is accused of doing wrong. There's nothing the cop (the professional in the situation) could have down better to interact better with the suspect(civilian), all onus is on the the suspect in their eyes. A bad person would have faced sever consequences, if they did what was done to let's say Freddie Gray for example, a bad cop does not, you see the issue here?
