hopefully this will all result in an extended anger-management program

Anger management should be an integral part of every officer's mandated in-service training every two years. There's so many loose cannons that go undetected out on the streets. Just say "no" to an officer and watch how easily most of them lose their composure instantly.

The problem is that people generally don't just say "no" when they decide to second-guess police. They throw in a few expletives here and there and become aggressive, escalating the situation. In this case, if the facts reported are true, then Ms. Cook was required to identify herself since she had remained on school property after being told to leave by a school administrator (i.e. committing the criminal offense of trespassing). What happened afterwards is up to the jury to decide.

Perry, from the testimony I have read so far, Cook did nothing that deserved the death penalty. It's about time this "I feared for my life" police defense is finally questioned.

Even if the cop was caught in the window, which I have doubted from the very beginning, the very first shot should have shattered the glass set him free.

I've said it once, I will say it again.... this is what happens when you have grown men sitting around palying violent shoot-em-all video games. They can't seperate video from reality when a situation like this goes down so fast. Was this cop an avid violent video game player? I would bet my entire 2013 salary that he is. Did it contribute to his overreaction? I'm betting it did. Are violent shoot-em-all video games popular amongst the law enforcement community? Darn right they are. Just visit some of the police forums out there if you want a second opinion.

Cops and control issues, must control all aspects of life around them, if not, kill it.
