I've noticed a lot of the cops on ATS who used to troll into every thread defending their brothers and sisters in blue, have all but disappeared.
Seems they've run out of excuses. Can't blame them. Society has little, if any respect for their profession, given stories like this have been coming out consistently, and popping up all over ATS. Cops have repeatedly shown they aren't intelligent enough to handle the responsibility they are given, have extremely poor judgement, and think they are above the law, and the law doesn't apply to them.
This is murder. If this cop doesn't get the same penalty you or I would for shooting and killing a deaf man riding his bike, it'll just be another example of the corruption and separate rules the pigs in blue live by.
