‘One life lost is far too many:’ 70 pastors calling for justice for Patrick Lyoya
“To everything there is a time and a season. This is a time for anger,” said Rev. Christy Lipscomb at the podium of Grace Church. “We ministers of Christian churches in Grand Rapids call for accountability for the killing of Patrick Lyoya. Black residents of Grand Rapids and people of color in this community need to feel safe. To that end, actions must be taken.”

Lipscomb is a pastor and co-founder of City Life Church. She read the letter at Grace, alongside over a dozen pastors who signed it as well. It outlines their demands for they want officials to take to achieve change.

The first demand, they said, is that Becker recuse himself from the investigation.

“We’re talking 58 days from the time in which Patrick’s life was taken,” said Dr. Willie Gholston III of First Community AME Church. “Now it’s in the prosecutor’s hands and he’s the one that is actually delaying what is transpiring.”

The group said they’ve asked him on several occasions to recuse himself. They’re also asking that an outside prosecutor take the investigation or Attorney General Dana Nessel.

The letter, which the association said is a joint multicultural effort for change, also demands:

A federal investigation conducted into the deadly shooting and into the ‘history and culture’ of GRPD

For the community to have a seat at the table during police union contract talks

Proper funding and resources for the Civilian Appeal Board and the Office of Oversight and Public Accountability so that change is achieved

The City and GRPD respect people's constitutional right to protest.....

They cry victimhood when they’re not allowed to victimize others.

These people are psychos.

Three Arizona police officers are placed on leave after looking on as a man drowned - NPR
Three Tempe police officers who looked on as a man drowned in an Arizona lake late last month have been placed on "non-disciplinary paid administrative leave" as several law enforcement agencies investigate what happened.

According to city officials, officers responded to a call about a disturbance just after 5 a.m. outside the Tempe Center for the Arts, where they found Sean Bickings, 34, and his companion.

Officers were talking to an uncuffed Bickings — who officials described as an "unsheltered Tempe community member" — while they ran his and his companion's name through a database to check for outstanding warrants, authorities said.

It was then that Bickings climbed a metal fence, descended an embankment and began to swim in Tempe Town Lake, police body camera footage from one of the officers shows.

The footage cuts out before Bickings begins to struggle in the water, but the city provided a transcript of the video from there.

"I'm drowning," Bickings says.

An officer tells him to swim to a pylon, but Bickings says he can't.

"Okay, I'm not jumping in after you," the officer responds.
Psychos.

Texas agencies resist releasing public records that could help clarify response to Uvalde school shooting - Texas Tribune
The Texas Tribune and ProPublica have submitted about 70 requests to state and local agencies for emergency response documentation surrounding the mass shooting at Robb Elementary. Most likely won’t be released publicly for months, if ever.

In the past week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has joined the growing list of state and local officials fighting the release of records that could help bring clarity to how the emergency response unfolded during last month’s deadly shooting in Uvalde.

The governor’s office strayed from that broader opposition Monday, granting a request under the Texas Public Information Act from a Houston television station that sought the handwritten notes he used when he first spoke publicly about the shooting. The notes appear to support Abbott’s claim that he was misled when he initially praised law enforcement efforts during the mass shooting that resulted in the deaths of 19 children and two educators and left many more injured.

The recent release by Abbott underscores both the tremendous power government officials have to decide what is in the public interest and the unwillingness to release records that could call their agencies’ actions into question.

ProPublica and The Texas Tribune have submitted about 70 public information requests that could help answer larger questions as state and local leaders continue to offer conflicting accounts about why law enforcement did not confront the gunman sooner during the May 24 massacre. Those requests include 911 audio recordings, body and police car camera footage, and communications among local, state and federal agencies. The newsrooms also requested use-of-force documents, death records and ballistic reports.

Three weeks after the shooting, government officials have not provided the news organizations a single record related to the emergency response.

“The public wants immediate transparency,” said Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas. “The most enlightened law enforcement agencies understand the importance of being transparent, being open and doing it right away.”
