No one knows what really happened but the officers and the now deceased defendant. The question is one of trust and those in that position how do we assure the public that trust is indeed worthy. This extremely horrific incident should cause much needed assessment of how these positions handle the trust we have given them. How do we better manage monitoring these officers and how do we better assess the damage when they violate their "trust"?

Please, the cops in ocala are corrupt enough to let Bad Doctors off of charges in order to avoid the county hospital from being sued. This makes them capable of anything.
does ocala even have an independent "internal affairs" department or does the fox patrol the hen house?

An impending lawsuit could cause the fed's to bring in their own csi's to reconstruct the crime.
Because there's usually no loyalty to a small town's sheriff's department there, you might even get some objectivity and an honest determination.

another innocent man dead thanks to the brilliant work of our trusted law enforcement officers. the only thing the toxicology will reveal is that the police are full of shit. They will probably find trace amounts of some type of drug and chalk it up to an overdose but the actuality is cops are corrupt. they beat, torture, and illegally arrest and search people. On top of all that they get away with it. but hey at the end of the day they are the most hated people on the face of the planet. nothing is lower than a cop. im sure there will be a lot of people at their funerals to spit all over them before they get buried. so in the end we win

This is a prime example of the corruption of the Sheriff's all together. They are a disgusting bunch of losers. They are the worst kind of human beings, or I should say that most of them that I have met any way. These "Deputies" are dirty.
