You might think it’s tough for a cop to cope after killing someone. Taking a life is something that should come with deep introspection and reflection. 

But for one police department? It’s treated like a game. A former officer from the force exposed their sadistic ritual.

Vallejo Police Department is known for its killer cop squad, the “Fatal 14.” Together, they’ve killed multiple people, like Willie Mccoy and Ronnell Foster. What’s even worse is how they’re adding insult to injury with this disgusting ritual.

Former Vallejo police captain John Whitney recently revealed that officers “bent their badges in a ritual to mark fatal shootings.” 

Whitney was FIRED for calling out misconduct, including this terrible practice! The department has responded to his allegations, but we’re not sure they care.

The chief said he’s “deeply disturbed” by the idea that officers would mark their killings as though they’re hunters proudly counting their kills. The department has opened an official inquiry into the matter, but it’s unlikely anything will come of it.

Police cannot be trusted to internally investigate themselves. They fired Whitney, after all, for exposing wrongdoing – and he was a nearly 20-year veteran! They don’t punish this behavior, they hide it!

That’s why the killings happen in the first place - because Black life is devalued by police instead of protected.
