I will start by saying that my Grandfather was a cop for 35 years, my 2 uncles are both cops, and my best friend since I was 12 is a cop. That does not affect the way I feel about police punishment for stupid officers. If an officer makes a serious mistake that affects the civilian population he is punished as a cop and not a normal citizen. I don't care if a person is a cop or not, if you take a life that is not warranted you should be tried for murder not fired. This is not Iraq or Afghanistan where our boys face deadly IEDs and gun fire every day. It is still the United States and cops should act accordingly. I don't know the whole story of this case so I will not comment on it. People in general support the police BUT the bad apples need to be made an example of not fired. That would earn the public's trust. Thanks for your service BB.
