One less bad cop on the street, new video

I'm not saying he should have been shot dead - but here is a news story about a bad cop who went too far and paid the ultimate price. He obviously had a grudge against this kid - had broken his jaw in the past And furthermore "The town’s police had agreed after that incident that if McKay ever stopped Kenney in Franconia, Kenney could ask for another officer to be brought to the scene." But McKay ran him off the road and peppersprayed him. Kenney's friend who was in the car with him said he never saw him so scared. I kind of can't blame him for going crazy like that. Very sad situation.

Here's the video. The cop is so out of line. He never should have had a badge. Cops are not allowed to harass individuals in this country.

    I must say that I can not find any corroboration of your labeling this slain officer as a "bad cop". In fact I can only find the opposite when I performed a search on him. I think that you comment of, "but the silver lining here is that there is one less bad cop on the street" is extremely cruel, and I am sure it will not help his 10 year old daughter. The article you provided mentions that, "The family is famous in the region for questioning authority, and Miller’s rise to the top of his sport extended the family’s outlaw mystique." So altho I agree that there might have been a past with these two people, that does not make this officer "bad" or entitled to any disrespect when he was doing his job. Not getting along with someone definitely does not mean you get to kill them, which I hope you would agree with. No one will know exactly what happened, and it is not for us to judge either of the men. Here is some other articles and information on the officer himself that I hope will show he was not a "bad cop".

    He maced a guy that he was ordered by his superiors not to deal with. That's a bad cop in my book.

    I am very saddened to hear that a human life any life is a "silver lining". Pathetic. Really. You say you are a Christian but this entry was far from it.

    You're right. It was harsh. I've edited the post. Christians aren't perfect. Only forgiven.
