Non Investigative journalism part II

from Oregon Media Insiders

When did a police officer ever go to jail for deliberate killing of a suspect? In my recollection it never has happened. I remember long ago police shot a suspect running away 15 or more times in the back and were found " just doing their duty".

Just of late we have a had a person killed with a crushed chest...not guilty are the officers. Another shot in the back and another not guilty. The Grand Jury, always led by the hand by the District Attorney find the officers are not guilty. Was there ever an officer that was guilty? The media seems to believe every killing was a justified killing. Mostly because of endangerment to the officer/s. Just the % of the cases would suggest differently. I guess that today's good media means no dirt...just read what handed to you.
