    " "Sending a cop to prison is a very tricky thing," he said. "
    Yeah, no kidding even for murder. The system is geared to give a guy like that immunity or a slap on tyne wrist. Cops come in two models in my opinion. Ones that follow and respect the law they enforce and others that can't handle the responsibility and have weak souls who have a perceived sense of power beyond what they are given by law. These guys were complete arsehules, Give Police and Hunters a bad name. Hope he gets convicted and does jail time.
    Cop in jail?.oh that should be fun.

    How did he even think that he could get away with shooting that elk when it was in someone's front yard. He deserves everything that he gets just for the stupidity aspect.

    Some cops just think they are above the law. The power given to them goes to their heads.

    I'm surprised they didn't fine him more. In Wyoming it's 10K just for replacement of the animal, then the other fines come.

    Be prepared for this thread to die on the vine when it is moved to some unread sub-forum. Dontcha know, cops don't screw up, but if they do it needs to be swept under the rug.

    Hope I'm wrong, but the history is there.

    That guy needs to get the book thrown at him too.
    Until they start punishing the guys who help cover things up, misconduct will continue.
