Remember the story of Prince George's County, Maryland police officer Corporal Donald Taylor, a 13-year-veteran, who claimed that after catching up to an aggressive youth who swung at him and began to flee, the youth reached for his gun, at which point he fired his gun at the youth in self defense? The story went mega-viral because the cop's tale was contradicted after surveillance footage surfaced which showed the officer run up behind the youth, then smash him in the head with his gun in a surprise attack, which triggered his gun to fire in the process.
Well, the case finally went to court, but not before a jury, just before a judge. During an "emotional" trial which apparently moved the officer to tears, his lawyer said the video didn't show the "totality" of the circumstances, and he said police "are forced to make split-second decisions."
Of course, one of the officer's decisions was to lie about being assaulted despite being the assaulter... then file false charges claiming the opposite... But hey, maybe he made the decision in a "split-second," so I guess we should just forgive him.
Nonetheless, he found a sympathetic ear from one of his fellow costumed criminals, Circuit Court Judge Dwight Jackson, who found him not guilty of all charges against him despite video evidence contradicting everything he said.
Shockingly, 19-year-old Ryan Dorm, the victim in this case, was somehow convicted of assault, supposedly because he "assaulted" another officer who was also on the scene, that was not caught on video, and obviously I find such a claim highly suspect.
The Washington Post reports:
A former Prince George’s County police officer who faced criminal charges for striking a teen with a gun was found not guilty on all counts Thursday after an emotional three-day bench trial that revolved around surveillance footage of the incident.I can't say I'm too surprised, this is unfortunately how things go down in the gangland of Prince George's county, which is undoubtedly the most corrupt county in all of Maryland.
40-year-old Donald Taylor has since retired on disability, he's now free to enjoy a life of leisure living high on the taxpayer hog.
Whoever said "crime doesn't pay" obviously never worked for the state.
