Dozens have been killed by cops in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Now, the Justice Department is getting involved.

Just one video, which some might find disturbing, shows why.

    That was flat out murder. I am a veteran solider of 20 plus years not a arm chair quarterback. Two less than six inch knives really. What we saw was police who are in love with killing. Take it fro a dog if war. They could have wounded him and subdued him. The flash grenade deployment showed that they attacked a mentally disturbed human being without justification. He was walking away. As in Texas with those armed law violators "all white people" do we need to start shooting these people. Like these type of police officers and those Texas law breakers!

    Cops should be held to higher standards than people since they are supposed to serve and protect. They also are supposed to be role models for kids.
    Cops who murder innocents / unarmed civilians, really should be publicly executed.
