    Then you'd be dropped from the jury panel in SC if you were ever called to serve on the case.

    It wouldn't surprise me, not one little bit.

    If the Feds do not threaten SC, the NC DA's office, or the police dept. in any way prior to the trial, the cop WILL BE ACQUITTED, period.

    Well of course.

    The defense would nix him straight off, if he flat-out stated he had already decided this...person...was guilty.

    I really don't share your contempt for police or authority. Rather, it is how the legal system tends to work for police, but that is largely due to the public itself. Often, politicians are treated more harshly now than ordinary citizens for the publicity.

    Cops shouldn't be entitled to the same rights as people.
    So it is ok to violate the constitution and everything it stands for if the ends justify the means?
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Cops are armed agents of the (local) govt. and should therefore be subjected to tribunals, not civilian trials.

    Regrettably, the system doesn't work that way

    He'll be convicted. Absolutely. But a lighter sentence than many would want.
