Cop Quietly Given Back Job After Executing Handcuffed Man on Video

Matt Agorist | The Free Thought Project

El Paso, TX — Reports have surfaced indicating what none of us should be surprised by.

A former El Paso police officer was just given his job back.

Despite the fact that he was captured on video shooting a handcuffed man to death, according to reports.

Officer Jose Flores was reinstated to the El Paso Police Department in a manner that was virtually universally ignored by the mainstream media.

The execution occurred on March 8, 2013.

The video clearly shows the officer shooting the victim to death, yet he now has his badge and gun back, reports say.

The Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas appealed the department’s decision to fire Officer Flores, apparently arguing that the shooting was “accidental,” according to reports.

“Obviously, this was a very tough case because there was a person who lost his life and he should not have lost his life,” said James Jopling, who is a lawyer for the association that represented Flores.

“Nevertheless, Officer Flores was a very good officer at the time this happened and he continues to be. The department and city are going to benefit from his service.”
The Free Thought Project summarizes the incident as follows:

The disturbing footage shows former Mr. El Paso, Bodybuilder Daniel Saenz, 37, being dragged through the corridors and then outside because guards refused to admit him.

Once outside, the shirtless man struggles with Flores and another civilian guard who lose control of him. Flores then reaches for his taser but quickly decided to go for his gun instead.

He then claims that the security guard bumped his finger causing him to kill Saenz.

Here is the video:

      What you just described is a total police state, not a country with any type of freedom. Where did you learn about government? From Hitler?

      You say “shot”, yet can’t officers shoot to wound? Aren’t they provided enough training to know the difference between a shot that wounds and a shot that kills? Why do you support police officers acting as judge, jury, and executioner? Even if someone resists arrest, is that an offense that requires capital punishment? Do you realize how inane your comment is? Or are you just that stupid?

        Cops are trained to be COWARDS.

    • ThoughtWillFreeYou

      aren’t you angry white guys always suggesting we take up arms and stand up to the government? SO which is it? Police shoot anyone who doesn’t immediately obey them (some free country you have there) or do they take up arms and stand up for their rights? Can’t have it both ways dummy.

    call it an accident huh. anyone find it odd they were in the police station and now they are outside? what is the purpose of going outside with a handcuffed criminal?

  • E.V. Smith

    Lies lies lies how do these cops get away with so many lies

    • db

      because of copsuckers in the DA’s office, copsuckers on the very few juries, and copsuckers who take over discussions.

  • Ernesto Conde

    I guess that means next time you feel your life is in danger and you assert your right to self defense you can easily claim “it was accidental therefore unintentional.”

  • Ernesto Conde

    And trust me this was no accident. In fact, if you all knew what they do to females inside correctional institutions there would be a NATIONWIDE REVOLUTION within a heartbeat against these mutha fuckers

    Can’t people see how well practiced this is to try and avoid detection on camera? They have the permission to kill whom ever they want, and nothing will be done about it.
