Re: BART cop gets away with murder

agreed. But this officer had no way of knowing that this subject had a prior record.

Does he assume that everyone has a prior record?
Does he assume that all black people have prior records?

His training failed him at the moment that he needed it.

Did he get up that morning and say to himself "Who am I going to shoot today?"

No he likely did not.
Was he remorseful over what had happened.
Undoubtedly he was.
Does he deserve punishment? Yes, undoubtedly so.

But his actions did not rise to the level of Murder One.
Or so the jury thought.

Anyway, now he is in jail, and now HE has a prior record.
If he survives jail, he will have to look for a new line of work.

But a man is dead. What line of work will he go into?
