Phoenix Police Officer Indicted on Murder Charge

A Phoenix police officer has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge for the on-duty shooting of an unarmed suspect during a violent encounter in which he also shocked the victim with a stun gun and killed his dog, officials said Thursday.

Officer Richard Chrisman was served a summons on the indictment and was not taken into custody, said his defense attorney Craig Mehrens. The indictment also charged him with aggravated assault and misdemeanor cruelty to animals.

Outlaw police, require guns.

No more police. A self-policing nation. If you are over 21 and on public property (off private property) you are required by law to have a loaded gun on your person at all times. Since there are no more police to enforce this law, your "neighbor" will help to make sure that you will want to obey this law.

 Apart from the sweet odor of police-donut I smell an offer of plea-bargin for manslaughter.

It gets worse. Officer Chrisman has been on the Brady list for years, ever since a surveillance camera caught him planting (with another Phoenix cop) a crack pipe on a handcuffed black woman.  His idea of funny. Watch the vidoes.
