Cops Behaving Badly: Murder by sheriff’s order

A disturbing incident in Tennessee, in which a deputy who shot a suspect AFTER his car was successfully nudged off the road feels more remorse than the sheriff who ordered him to use deadly force when none was necessary. So much so that he appears to vomit afterwards. And who could blame him for doing so? He just killed a man for no good reason. Well, of course, unless you think valuing your cop cars more than human life is some kind of valid reason.

And the worst part is, he got away with it…for now. The victim’s widow has decided to make a federal case of it, and I’d say she has a good one. The evidence is all right there in the video footage, disturbing as it is.
