"My daughter lives in the apartments where the riots took place. She was afraid they were going to set it on fire or worse yet, break into her apartment. Its too bad Victoria was hit and killed, I would rather see the morons jumping on the car lying in their own pool of blood. As the old saying goes you play, you pay. And by the way, Whompat needs to move to Russia and discover real state terrorism, or at least start medication immediately. "

Well jim, as it turns out it wasn't any of the knuckleheads that got killed that night but an innocent young woman that had nothing to do with the troublemakers. Why is that? Instead of the situation having been "you plau, you pay." it was more like "you play, and an innocent bystander pays." Why the apologetics for the BPD? Even the police commisioner admits that the BPD was responsible for what happened. The question is whether or not the cops responsible for the killing will actually be held responsible for what happened. I would go further, since the decision to deploy so-called "non-lethal" weapons was made by the top officials in the BPD, they too must be held responsible. If Police Commissioner O'Toole has any integrity she ought to be tending her resignation to the mayor.

Should I hold my breath while waiting for all the police officers and their superiors who were responsible for this incident to actually be held responsible?
