Chris Schurr a former GRPD officer who shot and killed a violently resisting and wanted person last April will go to trial this OCT. You may recall the Officer stopped a car on a SUN morning and got into a tussle with the driver. The suspect (driver) attempted to grab Officer Schurr’s taser. When he wouldn’t release the ECD Officer Schurr, following the use of force continuum, shot the violently resisting suspect.
This brought the usual hue and cry of white cop, black guy and the usual cast of race pimp lawyers and bogus “men of the cloth.” All with an eye toward a share of the reward from the city etc. Ya know the checks always get cashed.
Let’s take a closer look. Officer Schurr had 2 formal complaints. He also had seventeen letters of commendation in his HR jacket. Here’s a bulletin for ya…any active and hustling cop is going to ruffe some folks feathers at some point.
The mope that resisted and got shot for his actions had a long and violent history of domestic abuse, DWI, assault, auto theft and resisting arrest. A fine upstanding Congolese immigrant , to be sure. All this at 26 years old. Damn, he was off to a great start.
Chris Schurr NEVER should have been charged. Hope the prosecutors feel good about taking this to a jury…don’t think I would.
BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST, TURN ON YOUR CAMERA, STAY SAFE and deadly if you must.
