I thought the same thing. Also, I wonder if nepotism had a part in his getting hired. It's not about what you know, but who you know.

Is there not a police acedemy you got to pass before becoming a police officer? Do the nutters not get filtered out during their stay?
If what they say about turning away high IQ candidates is true, I'd assume the opposite - the nutters are all that get through the filters.

I've said it before and I will keep saying it.... STOP RECRUITING POLICE OFFICERS FROM PRIOR MILITARY!! Especially combat hardened Veterans. Our boys were stretched to the max.. Mentally, physically, and from their grand experiences, they go by a completely separate set of INGRAINED rules by which they interact with civilians. We need to pay them a nice check every month (YES.. WE CAN AFFORD IT!) and tell them the war is over... Especially on our streets. Hire from within the community so we can again have peace officers, not law ENFORCERS. a reply to: theantediluvian

When you shoot a person that is on their hands and knees begging you not to do it... and you shoot them 5 times with a rifle... and you have the words 'You're F--ked' etched on the rifle...
How is it that you only get charged with 2ND DEGREE MURDER?????
If I did that sort of thing, I expect there would be 1st degree murder charges.

Here the intolerant lefties go again...judging people by their appearances.
I will just judge this murderer by his murderous actions, if it is all the same to you.
