Cop “For this fucking lunatic? I’m going to shoot him in the penis with a shotgun here in a second”

This is what the murderer of James Boyd, a homeless man said 2 hours before shooting him in the back multiple times.

Yet he still has a badge, gun and is still collecting a salary as we speak.



Watch the full video report and get the full transcript here

Civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy represents Boyd’s family in a wrongful death suit against APD. Kennedy believes Sandy spelled out his intentions, then carried them out.

“Two hours later he's escalating the situation so he can do just that,” Kennedy said in an exclusive interview with 4 Investigates.

“It's chilling evidence and stunning that he has not been criminally indicted. He says to a state police officer ‘that f'ing lunatic, I'm going to shoot him in the penis. It's crystal clear and he says it with contempt in his voice.’”
In April, APD internal investigators asked Sandy about what he meant by the “shooting in the penis” comment. In an internal investigation transcript, sandy is quoted saying,

"Jokingly, just kind of locker room banter, just told him, you know, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll shoot him in the pecker with this and call it good.’”

But a few minutes later, the transcript shows that Sandy recanted his statement. The investigator asked, “Did you say anything to Chris Ware about shooting him in the pecker?”

Sandy responded, “I don’t…no, I don’t think I did.”

1. Boyd was a colossal pain in the ass

for a very, very long time.

He still didn't need to be executed.

Had the asshole not thrown that flash-bang grenade at him, he'd have continued peacefully collecting his crap and surrendered. He was in the process of doing that when the idiot threw that bomb and freaked him out.

I hope the poor bastard found some sort of peace in death. He never had any in life.

I hope the two cops realize just what the hell they did and have to live with it for a very long time.

6. Unfortunately, they are not going

to live with what they did, psychopaths don't have any empathy whatsoever. They probably joke about killing the man.

It really pisses me off that cops are killing innocent people yet they get to keep their jobs without any consequences for their actions.

9. This.It seems that the guy who threw the flash-bang did it specifically because

it looked as though Boyd was going to leave peacefully after all, not giving them an opportunity to shoot him. They had to do *something* to prevent that.

4. Protect and serve. Doesn't really seem that ambiguous.



ETA: shotgun?

8. Excuse me if I use the wrong term, but don't most

cops have a gun right on their person? Wouldn't that be more than sufficient to shoot off a homeless guy's penis? He has to go grab his shotgun?

12. Agreed. The fact that the weapon is in the cruiser is one thing, but

The decision to pull it out as a first resort is deeply troubling and to me it looks like the sort of move an agressive cop would make.

10. As Dr. William Barber says....

A gun and a badge is too much power for a bigot and a hater.
