"News From America"

 A white police officer who fired 34 shots at an unarmed black couple in 2012 has been acquitted of manslaughter in Cleveland.

Michael Brelo, 31, was found not guilty of two counts of involuntary manslaughter for the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams on 29 November 2012.

The seven-year veteran was one of 13 officers who fired a total of 137 rounds, killing the couple after a 20-mile high speed chase.

Prosecutors said the officers mistook the noise of the car backfiring for gunfire.  (CNN)


"Well oops."

"Sorry folks we thought your engine noise was the sound of guns fired at so we had to pump 137 bullets into your face."

"Umm, additional 34 by the good officer Brelo...again sorry."

"Hey shit Happens." 

"Of course if you were a white couple or a white male juvenile drunk on the weekend that we had to chase. Naturally we would not have fired a shot."

"Black people are dangerous, and generally suspicious. So you see our position. We 'had' to shoot you. It's just how it is. Anyway sorry you're all dead now with over 100 bullets all over you." 

"Ya gotta understand Police work is dangerous."

"Anyway there it is."

Stay Tuned.
