  1. While I absolutely agree he should be sentenced, I think the other 2 cops Thou and Kueng should’ve been given lengthier sentences compared to Lane

  2. First off, fuck cops. But he was new to the force and theres no way he was going to go against his superior (Derek) and not obey orders. Could he have walked away? Yes, but that would’ve been the end of his career and there’s no way he could’ve foreseen the outcome that happened. On top of that, I’m sure he had no clue what to do in that situation having probably never experienced something like that before. I’m glad he’s experiencing first hand that cops can be tried and sentenced, but I don’t think he deserves to spend his life in jail, I think 3 years is good enough for him.

    EDIT: changed “newish” to “new” – he was on the force for a handful of days before it happened

  3. This is hilarious, all these “this isn’t justice tho” posts about him being there a week. As if they haven’t condemned society for a group watching someone get beaten for nothing.

  4. I don’t think this guy did much wrong. I think he was new and he probably had no fucking clue how to react. And I’m not a blue lives matter guy I’m honestly the polar opposite but I do kinda feel bad for this guy. The guys on the force who were there 7 years and Derek absolutely not
