  1. Although not commenting on this particular situation, why bother to “investigate” officer-involved shootings, they always reach the same conclusion – not guilty!These so-called “investigations” are useless & meaningless.Do we believe law enforcement officials really “investigate” fellow-law enforcement officials in officer-involved shootings – GET REAL,JUST A SHOW!
