    this is bound to happen in a society. good thing there are consequences:

    it would seem as though his career at APD doesn't look too bright.

    Yeah - this is actually a good story where the system worked. In Austin, under the prior chief, absolutely everything done by an officer was vigorously defended and fought tooth and nail.

    well, it goes both ways. you want to be an officer where the city will stand behind you, but when you really do have a bad apple, the punishment needs to be swift and complete.

    I agree. I'm much more likely to stand behind the officers now, because there is due process. That means some have been bad and some have been good. You can see the difference in how community organizations respond to.

    Before, every single thing done was declared good at the very start and finished that way.
