    First off, I like how you automatically assume murder with no autopsy and only "maybe a bump" on his head. Secondly, you assume it was an officer and not, oh I dunno, one of the other CRIMINALS/MURDERERS in there with him? LOL. Police and Correctional officers do a job everyday that most of us would never want to do or consider doing, so they deserve our respect.
