Re: “Little Rock cop Josh Hastings charged with manslaughter in suspect's shooting

I gotta believe lastmall believes the world is really flat and that Elvis is really alive and being held in a secret prison as part of a vast government conspiracy.

Its certain that much of the grunt work of investigation which led up to the Chief's decision was done by FOP members. Apparently that reality is not as entertaining as the one lastmall has chosen.

Re: “Little Rock cop Josh Hastings charged with manslaughter in suspect's shooting

Many years ago I had the privilege of working as an LRPD officer with Chief Thomas, Lt. Hastings and many others who became career officers when we were all street cops. They are people whose responsibility to the public was clearly felt and whose performance inspired my confidence. I dont envy them their responsibilities now, but I have every confidence they perform as well as senior officers as they did as Patrolmen.

Having been part of a stake out where one suspect was killed and another seriously injured, I understand just how difficult split-second decisions can be and how easy they can be to second guess.

LRPD is a much more enlightened and sophisticated organization than it was 30 years ago and I know those senior officers have matured as well, but better than anyone, they understand what it means to be in a situation where the lives of officer and suspect can change in a matter of milliseconds. They are good, decent, capable people to whom "protect and serve" is more than a slogan.
