    I would not have expected anything different from the media. That's just how it is.

    Its my understanding that there is no guaranteed ruling in these cases. Each case is decided, individually , on its own merits.

    As Jerry points out, the "qualified immunity" defense may or may not apply. I've been out of the loop for quite awhile now. There may have been some recent changes.

    I'll ask rhetorically...how could this event possibly be related to racism and brutality?


    Just for the sake of discussion.

    Unfortunately we live in a society where there is no lack of experts on the subject of what is and what isn’t Police racism/brutality.

    As others have pointed out, A Liberal newsletter/magazine with a board of directors headed by a Maxine Waters clone, will not pass up the opportunity to share their expert opinion.

    I don’t remember seeing any such articles in local newspapers here in the Dallas area. Oh.I haven’t checked todays paper.

    It appears that The City is working hard at trying to answer the question, “what actually happened”.

    Glenn, perhaps you could tell the story of the Doberman or maybe not. I heard it from Arnold Jewell and you may want to correct the record. James

    What I've read is that initially the Dallas police were going to issue a warrant for manslaughter against the officer. However, a decision by the police to turn the investigation over to the Texas Rangers resulted in the Rangers telling the police to hold off on any warrants until they had conducted their investigation.

    Arnold Jewell. That toothless Aviator. His version of the story is funnier than mine.

    Haven't seen him in a long time.

    Yep, looks like the proper thing to do. It eliminates the possible appearance of Bias. Takes some of the heat off DPD.
