Killer cop gets away with murder

"This was a case of shoot first and ask questions later."

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed after Oakland police shot and killed 20-year-old Andrew Wahnee Moppin-Buckskin on New Year's Eve in 2007.
Officer Hector Jimenez's fatal shooting of Moppin-Buckskin was 'justifiable' according to U.S. District Court Judge Claudia Wilken.
Jimenez was fired by the department in 2009 for the July 25, 2008 fatal shooting of Mack "Jody" Woodfox.

"A department investigation determined that Officer Jimenez acted within our policy."
