I wish the chief waited for more information before deciding only one of the shooters should be arrested.
I wonder if a police department investigating itself is always the best policy.

I've thought that a lot. There are times I admire McMannus, but his knee jerk "my guys can do no wrong" reaction....doesn't really buy him points with the people. it would be better to say "let's let the investigation take it's course". And let's have the major appoint or hire a civilian team from the community that would conduct such investigations. just my thoughts as a citizen that lives next door.
Letting any organization, or profession, self-regulate with no oversight is a recipe for disaster. Would we as a society be comfortable letting the New York Stock Exchange self-regulate? Would we as a society be comfortable letting a hospital handle malpractice claims as an internal matter? People are people and a government paycheck doesn't change that.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

I'd rather the major stay out of it. The Texas Rangers or some similarly independent authority. 98% of cases would probably end about the same as they would have with an internal investigation but it would instill confidence in the process.
:iagree:

It would also have a salutary effect in certain departments by instilling the awareness they would NOT be able to control the investigation.
yes. even if it's the Rangers, which, Texans do tend to respect more.
