This case became highly publicized through the media. In light of the worldwide media frenzy these officers were placed under, it was impossible for them to receive a fair investigation.
I don't even have a loose shingle. There are people on this force who went to work on Monday morning and at the end of the day didn't have anything but what they were wearing.
What they told me ... is they feel they were justified in their actions and they were using the amount of force necessary to overcome the situation.
They're upset they were suspended. They thought their actions were justified given the circumstances that were at hand. They thought there should have been a full investigation before they were basically issued a summons and arraigned.
As far as law enforcement goes, money is at the root of everything. We need more personnel, more equipment. The DA's office needs more people and money. The corrections department needs more people and space to house prisoners.
