Apologize?

  • [Colorado] The attorney for the family of a man who shot and killed a Weld County Sheriff’s deputy demanded an apology from Sheriff John Cooke for the killing of the gunman and said the family’s threat of a lawsuit is “not about the money.”
    Asked Thursday if he would write a letter of apology, Cooke simply stated: “No.”
    Denver attorney Michael Evans sent a notice early this week to Cooke and to the Greeley and Evans police departments warning that Rueben Reyes’ family could file a civil lawsuit for $250,000 plus punitive damages unless they could reach a settlement.
  • On Nov. 23, at the end of a long police chase, police and Reyes scuffled where the cars had stopped in Evans. Reyes was able to get Deputy Sam Brownlee’s service weapon and shot him three times, killing the sheriff’s deputy. An Evans police officer immediately shot Reyes in the back three times, and he died later at North Colorado Medical Center.
    In the notice this week, attorney Evans said the nature of the chase and the way it was handled, “aggravated the circumstances” leading to the death of Reyes. He also accused the officers at the scene of not offering help to Reyes in the form of CPR or first aid.
Seriously? Offer a cop killer CPR or first aid? We're sure this bottom-feeding scumbag lawyer (but we repeat ourselves) wouldn't then be suing the police for aggravating the wound channels already inflicted by the bullets. We can only hope there's a special hell reserved for creatures such as this and the lifeforms they represent.

Only in this shit country which isn't worth defending anymore is this even possible. Commit a crime flee disarm a police officer kill him then get taxpayer money.

And why isn't the dead officer's family suing the estate of the dead scumbag to offset any such settlement?

You have to be out of your mind today to become a police officer anywhere in the USA.

An apology? Sure, how's this,
I'm sorry my deputy didn't shoot your scumbag family member sooner so he can still enjoy his family."

Reyes, hmmm, legal US citizen no doubt.

So if Reyes's family can sue the police, doesn't that mean that Deputy Brownlee's family can sue Reyes's family?

From Denver post

Reyes has a criminal history, including July convictions for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and underage drinking in Morgan County, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation records. He was convicted of felony menacing with a real or simulated weapon in February. Reyes, who went by the street names, "Demon" and "Smiley," also had previous arrests for assault causing serious bodily injury and driving under the influence of drugs, according to CBI re

That there are attorneys out there that are that desperate for business is very sad. I'd love to see the cases this Guy has turned down

I liked the Sheriff in Florida that when asked why his officers shot a man 67 times (he shot and killed a deputy down there) he told the reporter "We ran out of bullets"

I don't think they settled with that guy's estate either.

I am not the sheriff who killed Rueben but hopefully my apology, on behalf of law enforcement officers everywhere, can ease the Reyes family's grief.

From the very core of my being I am sorry. I am certain Rueben came into this world with limitless potential, full of wonder and possibility.

I am sorry he grew to be an amoral, violent sociopath. I am sorry he selfishly chose to pursue his own hedonistic desires at the cost, endangerment, injury and death of the innocent people who were unfortunate enough to cross his path.

I am sorry he had no concern for anyone but himself, that he regularly pissed his potential away drinking and doping. I am sorry he chose to accept no responsibility and possessed no element of honor or decency or honest productivity in his wretched soul.

I am sorry he chose to do evil at every opportunity to anyone he could harm. I am sorry he ended life as a drunk/high driving, authority hating, police fighting, thieving bustout and leech on society.

I am sorry he consumed the oxygen, nourishment and resources of our world for as long as he did, while existing only as a shameful waste of humanity. I am sorry he took God's gifts and destroyed them, embracing the works of satan and died in mortal sin, forever to burn in the fires of hell.

I am sorry, you as his family, being charged with providing Ruben with a core base of values and morality, quite evidently failed in spectacularly miserable fashion. I am sorry you managed to inflict such a worthless piece of shit on the world.

I am sorry you seem intent on continuing his malevolent and parasitic ways by trying to extort monetary gain from a society that has had to suffer at his and your hands.

Most of all, I am truly sorry that Sam Brownlee had to lose his life, being murdered by the subhuman savage Rueben Reyes.

I wish it were possible to turn back time so we could punch his ticket with two to the chest and one to the head long before he took Deputy Brownlee from this world.

I can only take solace in the knowledge that Sam Brownlee is with God and that you, Rueben's "Family", may meet your demise expediently and join him in eternal damnation.

Everyday this country gets closer to the end as we know it. Remember my fellow p.o.'s never and I do mean never give any lawyer a break. If you get one for anything even a traffic ticket use that opportunity to stick it to them like they stick it to us and all the taxpayers. This also goes for those on this job who think the job is only here to provide them with money and time to further their education while they go to law school. Remember you traitors to police work, you choose to be lawyers instead of police officers. This also includes those lawyers on the Shield's Team with the good inside jobs. Just what would they know about what it is that working police officers do, all you've done is use the job to further your own personal agendas. Lawyers and this is just a reminder that all lawyers, are bottom feeding scum who have done more to ruin our country and the American way of life than any other group in America. Anytime you get the chance at work to stick it to a layer who has broken the law make sure you give it to them good for that is what this bottom feeding scum profession deserves.

It was a mistrial because of a hung jury. The attorney for the shooter's family ended up getting disbarred and imprisoned for tax evasion. The family dropped the lawsuit with a waier of malicious prosecution from the LAPD and the officers.

You need to read up on that. The whole thing got laughed right out of court and there was no jury award to the family of that piece of garbage. The fact that they even tried to sue and that a lawyer actually took the case just goes to show how worthless some of these people are.
Atleast the sheriff told this family to basically go fuck off. If it had been here dipshit daley and jfuck would be having a news conference saying how the mean police are very sorry and that they will be coming up with new policy and there will be a thorough investigation into any wrong doing by the police. Mr. reyes may you burn in hell you worthless used tampon and to the reyes family, a huge fuck you.

Cop Tackles Knife-Wielding Multiple Murderer On NYC Subway Train, Ending 28-Hour Killing Spree

Sunday, February 13th 2011, 4:00 AM

"...Police Officer Terrance Howell...was riding with his partner in the motorman’s compartment of a No. 3 train Saturday morning, peering into the tunnel for a murderous maniac.
There suddenly came a pounding on the door.

"Whoever was pounding loudly announced that he was the police. Howell and his partner opened the door to see the very maniac they and the entire NYPD were hunting.

"Maksim Gelman was 6 feet of blind, unreasoning rage, and he was reaching for the big knife in his waistband. He had just slashed his latest victim moments before, and there was bright, fresh blood on the blade.

"Howell was 6-feet-5 of pure, brave righteousness. He pounced on Gelman and brought him down, a tackle where the stakes are your life."

Yeah.

I wasn't there, but I think I can say "high risk."

Great job, officer, but...Jesus. Gives me chills.

Great -- but still, clogging up the courts and spending tax money to fight this crap. Unbelievable.

Sue because a police car was not sent lights-and-siren to the bleeding, dying bank robber's house to fetch his chihuahuas, the presence of which could conceivably have cheered him up and given him the will to live...

No standards at all anymore, letting just anything in here by the millions and providing free everything.

Can't speak for Colorado, but in Illinois, the only way a judge will determine if the claim states a recognized cause of action to proceed to litigtion is if the Defendant PD files a motion to dismiss for failure to state a cause of action. Such a review is not automatic. The standard for dismissal is very high. Lots of BS claims get through to the trial stage.
