I tend to think it's more like reckless disregard or negligent homicide. But, regardless, the failure to obtain any indictment does seem to underscore the impunity and abject power of the Police State.
I would imagine this would be due to the jury being intimidated by the thought of having retaliatory actions brought against them if they indicted the police. Quite a distressing state of affairs. Hard to think who can possibly stand up against these abuses of power.

Personally, I think a big factor is the fact that DAs and law enforcement work hand in glove.

This is why I jumped to the, what to most would be "extreme" position of believing that he should be charged with murder and nothing less.

It seems that getting killed by the police is occupational hazard of being a criminal.

Just have to add this ,i am not American so i feel this thread is better started by someone that lives there . But really . What is going on there.
I am not saying to go out and kill a cop but it appears the only way the government looks at any issue is when it is out of control and all over the media.
