To Protect and Serve

A police officer who shot and injured a suspect inside a police station after saying he meant to use his taser will not face charges.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said on Friday that the unnamed officer will not face charges in the March 3 shooting of Brian Riling in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Weintraub wrote in a letter to New Hope Police Chief Michael Cummings that he had determined the shooting ‘was neither justified, nor criminal, but was excused.’

    Remember, everything is all right as long as the officer was able to go to home to his family.

    So, the cop/security guard “Vas just following orders”? Yeah, that works out real well in the end.

    I’m outta comments. This just isn’t going away or getting better. Just think, this is one of the “only ones trained properly” ……to handle firearms, texting while driving, computing while driving, phoning while driving, texting while phoning while driving, texting while computing while driving, texting while handling firearms while driving, and eating doughnuts too, all at the same time. Targets, one and all……

    It was a lot better in the old days before tasers…..

    Cops de-escalated verbal situations….so they wouldn’t go physical….

    I think all police tasers should be outlawed….especially the ones that resemble pistols.

Play nice.
