Impotent Austin police oversight lamented

Noelle Davis at Southern Shift posted this video to YouTube with excerpts from a community meeting in Austin last week in the wake of a report released on a controversial, racially charged shooting incident that recently rocked city hall. Participants offered complaints about the opacity and ineffectiveness of police oversight in Austin and the overweening power of the local police union to thwart the discipline process:


I'd expressed similar frustrations in a recent post, "Long ago concessions by city contract negotiators delayed release of report on police shooting."

Impotent and futile.

Crooked as a dog's hind leg. Police need to be MORE accountable, not less, than the average joe.

I am curious why there has been little discussion about why this kid had a loaded gun in his possession. Did he have a concealed handgun license?

Can anyone explain to me why he was carrying a gun? Sanders also recently went on probation for a criminal offense, should he have a gun? Had HE NOT BEEN CARRYING A GUN HE PROBABLY WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY!

If the cop didn't have a gun, Sanders also might be alive today. So what? It's legal to carry a firearm in a personal vehicle.

While you're on probation?

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy. I’ve tried both original brand and generic Viagra. There is no difference in effectiveness as far as I can tell between the brand and Generic versions. The real difference is price, no comparison. And this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://shopcare.org I’ve just placed my 3rd order. Viagra from this site is indeed good for male erection problem treatment.
