No one is denying that Weirich hasn't done many good things. Unfortunately, she and her office has gotten caught doing several UNETHICAL things on their law practice over the past few years that should not go unpunished. When any person abuses their power, or allows their employees to do so, they rot the system they are trying to uphold. Letting Weirich off completely unpunished simply shows other attorneys that if they know the right people and grease enough elbows that they are above the law of the court.
Isn't that 3 murder convictions under Weirich that have gone under Federal review due to unethical prosecution? When will she be held accountable for the methods of the attorneys under her watch?
Memphis is in the process of bringing online a brand new natural gas plant. A "Carbon Free" city aint gonna happen in my life time.
I'd like to see a passionate Memphis horde regularly rally together to clean our communities, fight blight, take a stand against crime in our backyards, to strive for education and to support & respect our fellow neighbors. Just imagine what a community with such passion could do in our neighborhoods instead of on a bridge! Imagine what could happen if we Memphians could focus all that potential energy toward the true solution- MAKING our lives matter.
Is it just me or does anyone else try to avoid going through Atlanta at all costs?
A committee that can only make suggestions without facts? Seems legit. Memphians' best defense against police misconduct remains YouTube & Facebook.
Clearly the officer who wrote the official statement didn't see the cell phone video where Troy was face down in police custody calling out that he couldn't breathe before they were loading him into the ambulance.
The moment he cried out in distress and the officers didn't alter their methods (to official procedures), they were in the wrong.
His death is a sad event but the officers, by securing him properly on the gurney, could have prevented his death.
