Police officer who fatally shot sobbing man temporarily rehired to apply for pension

Source: NBC News

A former Mesa, Arizona, police officer who was acquitted two years ago in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man seen on video pleading "please do not shoot me" was temporarily rehired by his department last year so he could apply for an accidental disability pension.

Philip Mitchell Brailsford, 28, is now retired from the force with a tax-free pension worth $31,000 a year for life and his attorney confirmed Friday that the settlement was a result of him suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the shooting involving Daniel Shaver of Texas.

Shaver was seen on police bodycam video crawling on the floor of a Mesa hotel and sobbing for his life before he was shot a case that drew national scrutiny over the use of deadly force.

2. Remember when we had outrage fatigue in the middle of the bush administration?

How naive we were.

This is beyond fucked up.

How. Did. We. Get. Here?

3. Get a lifetime pension for committing murder.

Not despite doing so, because of it.

5. Unforgivable resolution, the worst. Hope he spends the rest of his life right there in that hall.

Hope he will never be free of what he did to that unarmed man.

6. He is a Mormon

they take care of their own, especially in a state rife with LDS, as is AZ.

Explains a lot.

8. Corruption goes up and down the system, doesn't it. And Mormon-nationalism is like white-nationalism


Both are hyphenated nationalisms.

In-group/out-group

10. Watch the video

This cop belongs in prison. He couldn't WAIT to waste that poor guy. Now that it has faded from public awareness, the system hires him for a few days so he can still receive his pension? I swear, the only people more dishonest than the mob are the cops.

14. Let's just give pensions to all the killers in prison.

After all, aren't they the real victims of the murders they committed?

16. This is a good example of why most cops should be disarmed

You need a firearm, call in a specially trained squad. This idea that every low level cop should have a gun is just plain wrong.
