A tragedy should not be compounded by a miscarriage of justice--the officer deserves fair consideration of known facts. Then, if a trial is warranted, he deserves a fair trial. So far, outsiders in civilian life and outside local government are only lessening the likelihood that justice will be served. Our President and Attorney General are manufacturing a "federal case" and should know much better than to let Sharpon, Jackson and the despicable New Black Panthers fan racial hatred. A pleasure to join Pat Bolland minutes ago and give my perspective, off the cuff.
