    I think that this sentence was too harsh. After all, the shooter was an LEO. A written reprimand in his file should have sufficed.

    I wasn't there, so I shouldn't be making a judgment, but...

    I think he got off rather lightly.

    Yeah, it ruined his career, but didn't affect his retirement.

    He'll spend a few months in prison, but the other guy is DEAD! forever.

    Somehow, that just doesn't seem right.

    But, like I said, I wasn't there. So, I guess I should give the cop the benefit of a doubt. OK, I did and it still seems a little light. Maybe not. I guess I should trust the judge's decision on this. Really wish I knew more than the, probably incomplete, news report.

    Sad situation for all concerned.
