TOO MUCH POWER = TOO MUCH FREEDOM FOR POLICE OFFICERS!
How do you explain this? This officer needs to be charged and locked-up but he is still going to be given privileges that the average citizen would not be provided. Simply put, we are moving closer and closer towards a military-state!

1st of all I wouldnt have grabbed onto a truck that was trying to get away. Sounds like a scared, trigger happy, cop to me. Why else would you shoot an unarmed man who was trying to get away? The man obviously wasnt trying to harm the deputy. Nowhere in a deputy training manual does it tell you to grab hold of a moving vehicle and then shoot & kill the driver. That cop killed someones son,father,brother,friend in the prime of his life. And the punishment for this?: Paid leave from a job that he either wasnt well trained for or just wasnt good at. A paid vacation for a life. What a deal. When did serve & protect turn into shoot & kill?
Uhhuh

Policy is set by the Feds now.
Your local police and deputies no longer answer to anyone locally anymore when it comes right down to it.
Sure, there is still a Sheriff and a Chief but you need to know who sets the policy and what that policy not only allows but mandates.
Crucial shit to know and it might just keep you alive.
