Well, as long as your sorry.....

Really? You apologize? Really? How do people this stupid become cops? Is anyone honestly surprised that so many people no longer respect police? Do you think for mabe just a minute that it could be because so often, instead of serving and protecting the public, you turn into bullies with a badge?

I can't believe the

I can't believe the stupidity and callousness of the law enforcement officials in this instance. I don't care what the man did or said... some moments are sacred and should be respected. If officers want respect for their position then they need to show respect for everyone else. Shameful behavior. The Sheriff needs to personally apologize and ask forgiveness from the family of the deceased.
