Idaho Cops Release Video, Showing Them Killing Woman

Idaho police released dash and body cam footage of officers shooting and killing a mentally ill woman in July because she would not drop a knife.

However, it does not appear as if she was an immediate threat to the Sandpoint police officers or anybody else for that matter.

But she did not comply, so obviously, she had to die.

However, the Kootenal County prosecutor said the shooting was justified. 

According to the Bonner County Daily Bee:

“Walk over here. Show me your hands,” Ziegler can be heard saying immediately after he exits his vehicle. Similar commands from other officers are also heard.
“Show me your hands!” Ziegler says more forcefully.
“F- you!” Jeanetta Riley says.
Officers can be heard telling her to drop the knife.
“Bring it on!” she says.
Officers again order her to drop the knife.
“No!” she says.
Additional orders to drop the knife are heard as gunfire erupts. The footage from the body cam becomes illegible as Ziegler crosses the street toward Jeanetta Riley due to a lack of ambient lighting.
The span of time between Ziegler’s first command and shots being fired is 11 seconds. The body camera shows Ziegler placing Jeanetta Riley into handcuffs before running back to the vehicle to grab a medical kit. He then tries to render first aid to an unresponsive Riley.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
