Is this ever going to change?
Not everybody is good at their jobs. And some jobs are dangerous. So when some police officer accidentally kills somebody, the Department, and the profession at large has to deal with that. They can't be allowed to circle the wagons and blame the victims, and expect our good will to back them up.
I am always thankful for people that take on this tough job of being an officer. I am not thankful for people who turns out are not good at it, and I am no longer thankful for police departments willing to back up a bad officer as a default position.
When is this going to change.
