The Cop’s Trial

Filed under: Media,Society-Culture — Bunker @ 11:23 am

Last December, a man being arrested attempted to shoot my son. Today, my son goes on trial.

Sounds a bit odd, doesn’t it?

One of the perils of being a police officer in this country is that the criminal justice system can turn on you quickly when someone feels it needs to. The prime culprits in this are often the same ones who complain most loudly about our soldiers: Folks who call themselves journalists.

This time, the defense is calling my son as a witness. The defense. He is the one almost killed, and the defense attorney calls him as a witness for the man who pulled the trigger with intent to kill.

I’m on pins and needles today wondering how this will all play out.
