Beautifully stated.

I believe that sop feels that the public can generally police itself and should be free to do so without law enforcement keeping order. This is a popular belief held by those who don't understand the rationality of what law enforcement sometimes is compelled to do.

The criminal justice system has the added burden of attempting to enlighten the public as to what they can do, must do and what the consequences are for everyone if they violate the oath they follow, and the risks involved even if they do their jobs. It is a complex issue that depends largely upon your point of reference.

BTW: Officers were cleared of any wrong doing by both the State Attorneys Office and the Sheriff's Office Internal Review in this case.

Thanks for the update, Fletch.

Quote by myself -


Hmmmm.....if it was a taser, the guy probably had some kind of heart condition for him to die from it.

I knew it! The chance of a taser killing someone with no other health conditions is very low. It's almost always something else besides the taser itself, when there is a death involved.
"In case you ever wondered what it's like to be knocked out, it's like waking up from a nightmare only to discover it wasn't a dream." -Forrest Griffin

In this case, the official cause of death was listed as drowning due in part to the officer being stuck in the mud and unable to get close to the suspect during the taser cycle. Contributing factors were listed as asthma, extreme exertion, lack of swimming ability and cocaine use.
