A former RPD captain, Michael Leach, that killed his son, was sentenced to six months in prison and five years of probation. Really?

Are there two set of sentencing guidelines in the is state? Black man would have got 25-to-life.

Leach is a great example of the quality they choose for supervisor jobs in the RPD. Their physiological screening didn't pick up his alleged PTSD.

PTSD is the white get out of anything card. Kind of like ADHD with their kids. Everything can be explained away.

Kills his son, sentenced to 6 months (reduced to about three months for good behavior --- because they're filling up prisons with us) and goes about his life on the outside, collecting a fat city pension. No prison walls, and reports to his parole officer once a month. Sweet.

So let me understand. Kills someone, no penalty to speak of. This is outrageous.

Whatever company or person is conducting the evaluations of RPD cops should be fired. Too many weirdos slip through and get a gun and badge.

If this is accurate, his sentencing is a travesty. How can you gun down someone (in this case, your own son) and be released in 6 (or fewer) months. This says there is no penalty for murder among the protected class. A higher court should investigate and overturn his sentence. He should be serving many years, at a minimum.

The widow doesn't seem to be buying the story that this was accidental. And if he had ptsd what was he doing on the force and why was he allowed to carry a gun?

PTSD is the white man's excuse for everything crappy they do. They always use the PTSD card to get reduced sentences. Killed your kid, PTSD, OK you're free. PTSD is a white scam.
