Civilian Oversight Panel – Cops Violated Policy by Shooting a Man Who Shot at Them

I worry about writing on topics that are too stupid for words. I’m afraid the ink from my pen or characters from my keyboard will refuse to flow onto the paper or screen, and I won’t be able to communicate to you just how dumb some of this nonsense is for cops these days. Here’s what I mean.

I recently wrote about a police officer who may receive civilian review recommended discipline from his police chief after he tackled an ax-wielding suspect, bringing the incident to a safe conclusion with no one injured—not even the suspect. His police union named him Officer of the Month for his actions. Whether the chief imposes the recommended discipline isn’t even the point any longer. Now, the point is that discipline against a heroic officer was recommended at all.
