  1. I have to wonder. These seem like serious incidents. Checking out the names, Penna, Miller and Schmidt are all now in supervisory positions. It also makes me question the validity of “internal investigations”.

  2. In my line of work, I read police reports. I have literally read thousands of them. I can’t remember a report where the responding officer equivocates what he saw as was done in this report. This report is literally, one out of a thousand. His equivocation makes this matter unchargeable. I do not believe this was lost on the deputy making the report.

  3. Watching, go to the blog and read the 2 new posts. Interested in your take.
