5 off duty officers

who have been in clubs all evening and who get into a confrontation at closing time which causes serious injury to two individuals. I wonder if any one bothered to check the cops Blood Alcohol Content?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

"off duty"??

As in they look no different than 5 gang-bangers? No wonder the guy didn't stop. Neither would I.

Was wondering the same thing

Those tests were probably not administered. Also, why do the police always seem to shoot first. The car was now stopped and no one was going anywhere. What were there like 10 police vehicles and probably 20 officers? They so overreact it is absurd.



and if anyone accuses those officers of misconduct or crimes, the judge will step up.

IMO, it's the judges and department policies that are getting these cops off.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
