The usual events preceded the murder. The cop tried to detain a black man without cause. The cop murdered him.

BLM has had a positive effect on the minds of police chiefs, mayors and governors who are now aware of what will happen if they fail to act in case of blatant and patent murders.

Police Officer Shaun David Lucas Arrested, Charged With Murder In Connection To Jonathan Price Slaying

HUNT COUNTY, Texas (CBSDFW) – Shaun David Lucas, the Wolfe City police officer allegedly connected to the shooting death of Jonathan Price was arrested and charged with murder.

But within hours of his arrest in Hunt County, Officer Lucas posted his $1 million bond.

“This is the first step. This man is dangerous and should not be out on bond. The family was relieved to hear of his arrest and are looking forward to his conviction,” said Dallas attorney Lee Merritt.


Price, 31, was shot and killed outside a Wolfe City gas station on Saturday.

Described as a “hometown hero”, “standup guy,” and “mentor who worked with children,” most who spoke out publicly about Price said they can’t see any reason why a police officer would shoot and kill him.

But that’s exactly what happened on Saturday, after Price allegedly stepped in to help a woman out of a domestic violence situation. Things escalated between Price and her abuser, but had calmed down, according to witnesses by the time police arrived.

The circumstances surrounding Lucas’ ultimate decision to use deadly force is now under investigation.

Price’s father, Junior Price spoke about that alleged deadly choice too on Monday, saying “I want to see what the man gets… what he has coming to him for killing my son.”

Monday afternoon, Price’s family said there is video proof that the shooting was a criminal act and they want justice.

“The chief saw the video and told me he wasn’t happy with what he saw,” Merritt said. ...

I'm not sure how thing work in the US, but where does a cop get $1m?
From a Bail Bondsman

They will loan ya a few hundred all the way into the millions, with no security, depending on how much the court sets your bail for.........but it comes at a hefty price.......Lending you $1million dollars bond might cost you upwards of $10,000 to $25,000 ...... & because, by law you are guaranteed a speedy trial, this bond $$$ charge could be for as little a 1-4 months & usually must be paid in cash....up front.

They are the guys who hire the Bounty Hunters, that come after yer ass if you don't show for your court appearance &/or trial...........
Bounty Hunters are the most powerful private agents in America......They operate outside the legal constraints that govern police officers, & other Law Enforcement.....they don't need probable cause, court warrants, or AFAIK, firearm permits ....etc, etc, etc....... when they cross State lines apprehending Bail Fugitives.

BTW............Anyone thinking this will be a slam/dunk murder trial, remember one very important fact.......Constitutionally the Cop will be tried at a jury trial, by a jury of his peers, where he is guaranteed 12 jurors of his choosing.....that his lawyer has the right to reject any juror, for any reason whatsoever, prior to their selection to sit in the jury box......

After all the evidence has been presented, all the cop's lawyer needs to do is get just 1 of the 12 jurors to doubt that the Prosecution (the State) has made their case for guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, in order to get the cop set free.

To make it even more difficult for the Prosecution (the State) the cop can refuse to take the stand, & by law the Prosecution can't call on him to do so......If he does decide he wants to have his say, & he takes the stand, he can refuse to answer any question he doesn't want to answer......guaranteed by the Constitution's 5th Amendment Protection against self-incrimination.

As a outsider the Floyd case, it seems like it was acceptable procedure to control someone that needs to be constrained! His death could be viewed as being unfortunate with no intent to cause his death.

In my opinion the case were the bloke walking away from the cop and being shot in the back...amounts to excessive force being use, especially with alternative disabling equipment was available too be used?

Even when he is in handcuffs, telling you that he can't breathe, or another citizen telling you to please get off him so he can breathe? The only thing unfortunate about this incident, is that there are callous, sociopathic, racial bigots, that have been allowed to carry guns.

Has there ever been an incident where a black cop killed a black person ?

Was it then deemed as justified purely on race

On your knees knave.

Are you suffering a debilitating disease, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease, that has made you unable to google?
No!

But, I bet many gutless supports people wished they suffered from ALS as an excuse not to give in to the BLM
