If this information is correct, the Phoenix PD

officers involved need to be fired. And prosecuted. And sued.
...Sgt. Coutts asked Office Lilly where Tony's gun was at the time Officer Lilly had opened fire on Tony. Officer Lilly admitted that he did not know where Tony's gun was: 'I don't know. I heard screaming and I fired.'"
Lilly later told a police internal affairs investigator that Anthony had pointed his gun in his direction, "in the 'ready' position," the complaint states. But Anthony Arambula says he was facing away from the officers, who could not have even seen his gun.
The complaint continues: "Still not knowing that he is being recorded n the 911 tape, Sgt. Coutts interrupted Officer Lilly's admission and apology with his assurance that the cover-up would commence: 'That's all right. Don't worry about it. I got your back. ... We clear?'"

I've got a category of 'Law Enforcement-sorry excuse for', but it's not really sufficient for this kind of crap.

Rack up another case of "Only One" being all-seeing enough to know where someone's gun is when the victem isn't evn facing the orificer.
