Innocent Young Man Shot In The Face By Cop Speaks Out
APD suspends officer charged in assault
I try as hard as possible to give the police the benefit of the doubt. They have a thankless job. They are attacked when they don't stop crime. They are attacked when they over react to the threat of crime. The only benefit that they often receive is the knowledge that they are protecting the community from the assailants, and they get to bring justice to victims.
Sadly - on occasion they create VICTIMS. Such is the case with this young brother who was innocent. He came to help a paralyzed family member and ended up with a bullet in his jaw.
