    What trial. There's no reason to believe the second officer did anything wrong or that he will be charged

They also suggest that Officer Habersham omitted significant information from his report — for instance, that Mr. Slager dropped an item, possibly his Taser stun gun, near Mr. Scott after the shooting. Officer Habersham could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
    Nothing but BGi absurdity.

    There is nothing wrong with his two sentence report. It is accurate and to the point.
    You do not report more than necessary and they also have his radio communications.

    As I've said, we don't know what Habersham's departmental directives are. Because everything written and recorded is going to be shared globally, this may be at least a partial explanation for the brevity of his report. It's a brave new journo world out there.

    It speaks to routine.
    It speaks also to the almost endemic corruption in the law enforcement community.

    And it's high time that house of cards crumbled. No more "thin blue line" in terms of police protecting police. Those who lie or omit or mislead or cover up for bad cops are bad cops themselves. We need, we must have, we demand only good cops.

    Yes, and a very important part of the equation is that we must also have rational and constitutionally sound policies for the police to enforce. Poor policy and poor laws naturally lead to poor police tactics.

    Of the 1st Officer.
    Then we have the ongoing investigation. Who knows what will be found.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    Making excuses, could strain something doing that.
