The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
The way I see it, the man was a police officer. He was trained, sworn in, and worked that job (apparently) in good faith. Obviously he got the job under false pretenses and should be immediately fired, benefits pulled, etc, and appropriate charges filed against him.
However, I would argue in the inevitable appeals that because he performed his duties in good faith as a sworn officer of the law and followed police procedures, the people he arrested are not entitled to automatic release. (although obviously there's going to be investigation on those arrests to make sure there was no improper actions taken)
That said, I have no idea what the law or court precedents say about a situation like this, because I don't think I've heard of a case like this happening before.
One of you will end up here next!
