    Speed through the streets of L.A for an hour and a half (often with headlights off), endangering Lord knows how many people.... plow into an innocent, law abiding family who was minding their own business .. Attempt to flee, post accident, in your damaged vehicle... Get out and behave squirrely, refusing to surrender ..... Then receives whats coming to him

    And somehow this shitstains family sees this as their winning lottery ticket ..... there--are--no--words

    $20 Million Lawsuit Filed Against LAPD Officers Who Fatally Shot Veteran

    An attorney who filed a $20 million lawsuit against the police officers who shot and killed a disabled veteran in L.A. said Friday that he eagerly awaited the LAPD’s findings in its investigation into the case.


    The veteran’s family and their attorneys announced a wrongful-death lawsuit on Thursday against the officers and City of Los Angeles, claiming excessive force was used against Brian Beaird when he was gunned down after a police pursuit in December 2013.

    “Clearly unarmed, clearly no immediate threat to the life of the officers or anyone else. Members of the LAPD opened fire on him and shot and killed him,” Attorney Dale Galipo said.
    The Los Angeles Police Department attempted to pull over Beaird for reckless driving and a possible driving under the influence when an hour and a half long pursuit ensued, officials said at the time.

    After Beaird’s Corvette T-boned an SUV, he could be seen exiting his vehicle and attempting to flee the scene on foot when he was shot, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
    Beaird, 51, was emotionally disturbed and feared police, his family said.

    “He even made a couple calls to his family during the pursuit saying he was afraid, he didn’t know why they were chasing him and wanted to know what he should do,” Galipo said.
    Three officers were on administrative leave during a department investigation, Galipo said.

    “Without any prosecution, without any discipline or retraining to the officers these shootings are going to continue to happen time and time again,” Galipo said.
    Galipo expected to receive the LAPD’s investigation, including the names of the officers involved, in the next three to four months, and the family wanted the district attorney’s office to review the case.

    “We’ll see what the D.A. and LAPD does, but we’re not holding our breath,” Galipo said. “We’re moving forward with this no matter what.”
    Galipo was also part of a lawsuit filed by another family of a man fatally shot by police in Long Beach, according to a news release from his law office.

    The crazy and unstable people in our society cannot be institutionalized because we will infringe on their civil rights. Meanwhile, these folks will commit most of the mayhem in our society or will live on the streets so the folks who practice their religion will have to provide care for them. That being said, it will be interesting to see what the facts of this case will prove out.

    Yea, I don't know that any of his crimes deserve death. Sure, people COULD have been killed by his actions. But nobody was. So he was not a murderer. Nor was he a threat to the police, being unarmed.

    The laws concerning fleeing police are way too lenient. If you flee in a vehicle like this you need to be put away for life. You obviously have zero regard for the lives of others so we have zero need for you to be in civilized society. I hope he died in pain.

    While I don't disagree with this, it's up to THE LAW to decide a person's fate. By way of a fair trial. It's NOT up to the cops to make this decision, especially if a person is unarmed and fleeing. He was obviously not a threat to them or anyone else at that point. It's not fair that the cop played judge and jury.

    You can't decide to end a person's life based on hypotheticals. Had he been tried, he'd have been charged with lots of things, but murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, assault, resisting arrest, assaulting police officers... none of these things would be among them. And the punishment of death would certainly NOT have been chosen to fit his crimes.

    His fate was HIS decision ....Had he decided to be a man & face the consequences of his actions (and pulled over, & exited the vehicle with his hands up), he'd still be alive today for his douchebag family to enjoy .... Whether he was found to be unarmed after the fact is irrelevant ..As they're chasing him, the police don't know what crime(s) he's committed...they have to assume he's armed until he's either in custody, or dead

    But at the moment he was shot, there was no weapon in sight.
    At the moment he was shot, he was NOT a threat to their lives or that of anyone else.
    People run from the cops every day. They don't all deserve to be shot for it.
