Posts like Streck-fu's last two gems are the forum equivalent of streaking during a track event and insisting that you're a competitor.

Family sues. Federal court says "denied". Qualified immunity. Sucks to be you.
It's an Appeals Court. This needs to go to SCOTUS. Fuck that shit. The dept that still employs him after that needs an enema.

I suppose asking for murder charges (the Texas version of manslaughter) against Garcia or Goines is hoping for too much.

Edit: Oh, cool. They are going for felony murder against Goines.
The newly unsealed indictment — which stems from a federal civil rights investigation — comes months after the Harris County District Attorney’s Office announced state charges against Goines and his partner, former police officer Steven Bryant. In addition to the new felonies, Goines was already charged with two counts of felony murder, while Bryant was facing one count of tampering with a government record.
