If you intentionally force all the good cops to quit, you're going to be left with just the crappy ones.

There was already plenty of shit cops beforehand, just ask Chauvin who was recently convicted of murder.

The "bad cops" don't work in a vacuum, their coworkers have to turn a blind eye. Those "good cops" are enablers, accessories. Like the saying goes, a bad apple spoils the bunch.

Unfortunately I've experienced it first hand. The two cops who beat me, separate incidents but same shitty police district, and filed false charge to justify it had backup who saw what happened, they could have exonerated me but it would have meant throwing their cop brothers under the bus.

I suspect they all take turns "unloading" and all like it to greater or lesser degrees.

You can't be in the thug business without being a thug.

He shot a woman SIX times? He might have used a bit too much force.

Maybe she was evading him, Matrix-style, dodging bullets.

I sure hope so.

Bet she won't do it again.

All he gets is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, if I did that I would be facing attempted murder.

It might have something to do with proving intent. Although it seems pretty bloody obvious that shooting somebody six times would reasonably be expected to lead to death, proving intent to kill might not be easy. Whatever their reasons for the charge, I hope it carries enough years to ensure this guy never sees daylight again.
