Violent Force Is Congratulated By Police

Williamson County, Texas Sheriff’s Office leaders did something unthinkable, according to officers who worked there. Now they’re being investigated for their brutality and aggression.

Life is precious, but what’s been revealed shows these cops don’t seem to believe so.

Officers J.J. Johnson and Zach Camden, who tased a Black father named Javier Ambler to DEATH even as he told them he had a heart condition and couldn’t breathe, are among officers who were rewarded with gift cards for their use of force! 

The issue is bigger than just them, too.

Sheriff Robert Chody was indicted for tampering with evidence, but before that he was hiring officers across the department with tarnished histories across all ranks. 

Use of force investigations aren’t a surprise at all, considering. It’s not just this sheriff’s office either.

In Vallejo, California whistleblowers revealed officers bent their badges in a twisted ritual whenever they killed someone. The Vallejo Police Department also has a very deadly reputation that has brought them national attention. We can’t neglect what all of this means.

A minor traffic violation turned into a killing, at a department that gives out steak house gift cards for force! 

People like Javier Ambler pay the ultimate price – and another family is left without a loved one.
