CRIMINAL LIABILITY OF COPS FOR KILLING

"It is a genuinely open question whether an American police officer can do almost anything without suffering criminal consequences. Americans have a profoundly stupid and misguided deferential attitude toward law enforcement, one which presumes that police officers—fallible, often incompetent, and frequently temperamental human beings—are worthy of some sort of extra-special benefit of the doubt about their professional behavior. American citizens have no problem suing doctors for their back molars on the flimsiest of pretexts, but we generally cannot bring ourselves to convict police officers for demonstrably inept and reckless behavior that often costs people their lives."

This is a conservative website.

I agree with the statement, but, don't know enough about the specific case to agree or not agree with the rest of the article.

Thanks to 44 shot for the link.
