Cop indicted for murder in the shooting of a man in his own home.

As with nearly every other case, I believe this to be a major crime--a felony. I will talk about the law and how these things work. Remember is not what she did. That is effectively irrelevant. What is important is what the law is and what the prosecutor can convince a jury she did and rebuff the defense's attempts to sow the seeds of reasonable doubt.

The original auto-locked topic

Today a Grand Jury indicted her for murder. She was originally charged with manslaughter.


A police officer walks into a man's apartment and shoots him.

Her story is that she parked on the wrong floor and walked into the wrong apartment, into his apartment, and was surprised by a man inside and she shot him.

Her story changed a little over time and she is alleged to have had some social media posts where she talks about shooting people.

I worry that Murder is a losing case. Even manslaughter would be difficult. I personally think the best bet for conviction is a charge of criminally negligent homicide. The fewer elements the Prosecutor has to prove the better. And the higher charges are more easy to defend against.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.
