The news is out: [The Columbus, Ohio, public safety director has decided to terminate Columbus police officer Adam Coy after Coy shot and killed Andre Hill, an unarmed Black man, last week.
In a Monday ruling, Public Safety Director Ned Pettus Jr. wrote that “known facts do not establish that this use of deadly force was objectively reasonable.”
Pettus said Coy didn’t try to deescalate the situation before shooting Hill, and after the shooting, Coy didn’t render aid or ensure that others did.
Coy also didn’t activate his body camera while on the service call, Pettus said.]
Police reform will not be legit until and unless qualified immunity, no-knock warrant, chokehold, police unions are outlawed and a national database for law enforcement prevents the rehire of cops who are caught.
