I smell more trouble for the HPD, if the investigation takes a long time, that means a lot of officers are talking like parrots. Feds are already investigating. A lot of officers would lose their jobs and get indicted as well. The heads have to roll including the Chief.
A big law suit is coming after the criminal trial(s).

I'm at a point where I even wonder if the small amounts of pot and coke that were "found" were even really there to begin with?

With evidence mounting, against the lead officer, even if it was, it will be very suspect.

That is irrelevant at this point. A drug bust based on fabricated drug investigation amounts to unjustified licensed killing. A murder charger is adequate if a motive can be established, if not aggravated manslaughter plus corruption charges.

Any of his coworkers, friends and family who knew about it and didn't report it are accessories after the fact.

This quote from a man wrongfully arrested in the spa sex bust in Florida I thought fit this case as well.
“willing to sacrifice proper investigative work and our civil liberties for yet another arrest.”

I agree.

The wife lunging for the fallen officer's weapon, always sounded made up from the first time I read it.

I find that very hard to believe. The natural response for the vast majority of untrained, inexperienced people is to freeze, not reach for a battlefield pick-up.

Mayor launches re-election bid.

I’m already seeing the other guys campaign ads in my mind.

Since the first of the year trash collection has been a hit or miss thing. Starting to think that you should just leave the barrels at the street permanently.

He also wanted s tax hike right after Harvey. Had to pay for all the electric cars in the basement garage that flooded.

:iagree: It's much easier to believe she acted emotionally, not tactically, and rushed over to comfort her dying doggy.

Hopefully, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will be told.

It seems more likely the wife was going to take care of her dog.

If he's actually convicted of killing the middle age couple he murdered, will he still get his pension?
