Lives matter.

I’ve been a law-and-order kind of guy for most of my life. I believe the rule of law is one of the most important underpinnings of a free society and nation. So I’ve generally been supportive of police and taken their side when the circumstances of a confrontation were ambiguous. When it’s one person’s unsupported word vs. that of a LEO, I take the LEO’s word. So a case like the one I’ve linked below is the exception, not the rule. This is a cop who needs to be dealt with far more harshly than some paid time off. The only good thing about the story is that the cop is so incompetent with a firearm that he failed to even seriously injure, with three rounds, an absolutely innocent man.
