Hall of Famer

Right, it is all speculation. Part of the problem is that some do not trust the system. So having the system investigate itself and say, "we are clean" does not necessarily solve the trust issue.That could be true; but again Marv all of this is pure speculation when the records/testimony are sealed. Honestly as long as the cops returned fire homicide was never going to stick.
As stated by so many others the real point is why are we doing 1 am no knock raids over drugs
As a nation we need to consider thoughtfully what is kept secret and why. Reading the book on the Pacific war has a couple examples. Hen Wake Island fell, we told the media they could announce an island had fallen but could not name it. As if the Japanese had no idea which island had fallen and were hoping we would tell them.
Or later when we sank a carrier and would not let it be announced, as if the survivors did not tell Tokyo what happened to their ship.
Did the AG ask the Grand Jury to consider charges on the other two officers should not be secret. Maybe yesterday's lack of mention was a mistake and it will be cleared up today. If so, great. But if not, why is it a secret?
The secrecy hurts the police effort. They lack the ability to control any narrative beyond, "you should always trust the police".
