Not too long ago, Aurora Police Officer Jeff Weinceck shot and killed a mentally ill individual at a standoff in a hospital.
The dead man was black.
Weinceck claimed he thought the person was shooting at him.
Another Aurora cop, Shireen Long, was also present and her account of the events contradicted Weinceck's story.
In this rare situation, we had a cop not just follow the code of silence and had the courage to speak the truth.
Lawsuits were filed and John Barsanti, the State's Attorney at the time, declined to pursue charges against Weinceck.
Shireen Long was eventually pushed out of the APD.
Corrupt Cop Kristen Ziman recently promoted Jeffrey Weinceck, knowing full well he killed a man...in a hospital.
You don't have to live in Ferguson or Baton Rogue, your name doesn't have to Alton Sterling or Laquan McDonald to see the problem of good cops and bad cops.
