    I would hope it was just a negligent discharge or something, where an overly twitchy cop blasted someone. That's probably the best case scenario imo.

    He shot across his partner out of the car multiple times to hit a woman in her PJ's. I think negligent is out the fucking window.

    The story is getting legs here too, partly because no one seems to have any idea why it happened. The two cops had their body cams off, too, which is a violation of department policy and problematic.

    I heard it's not against policy if they're in their vehicle? Like I'm not sure you can drive around all day with a tiny portable camera going, would need to change battery like 10 times. Maybe they have to turn it on when responding?

    Cars record all the time, not optional. This footage is mysteriously "not available" either.

    What we have here is willful destruction of evidence. And probably on the job drug usage (reason for bad shoot).

    The Minneapolis Police Department’s Policy and Procedure manual says that any use of force requires the camera’s activation. If things change quickly and the officer is too busy, he or she should activate the camera “as soon as it is safe to do so,” according to the manual.
    I'm really bothered by the description saying he shot her from inside the squad car. That screams negligent discharge or some other manner of fuckery.

    It's unfortunate to have happened... but I'm not sure what there is to discuss about it. Seems like there's no detail out there yet.

    Still no details available. It's probably bad taste to speculate, but, it is certainly safe to say that there is no fucking way that the gun accidentally slipped out of the officer's holster and into his hand, aimed at the woman, and accidentally fired several times. Also, one of few facts we know is that the woman was shot about twenty minutes before the shooting was reported. 20 minutes is an eternity for a bunch of adrenaline pumping.
