More on the reserve deputy charged in killing suspect

The 73 year-old Reserve Sheriff's Deputy who has been charged with manslaughter  in the death of  a suspect (see post below) may have been in that position as a form of political patronage from the Sheriff.  There are also suggestions that his training records were falsified.  It is estimated that there are as many as 400,000 reserve police officers in the U.S.  This incident should trigger a re-evaluation of reserve officers.
Recall that in 2007 a BART officer was convicted in a similar case where the officer said he thought he was drawing his Taser while actually firing his handgun

  1. I've been shooting since before that doofus was born. He oughta go on and go to a nursing home. Totally incompetent.

    I saw a picture of his taser. That thing would not feel anything like any revolver that I've ever held--and that's heaps, gobs and bunches..
