And Myra I assume just like Peter your only basis for besmirching these people is that they did not, in your opinion, react fast enough?
If I was not a charitable man, I would hope that someone near and dear to you would be the victim of a vicious smear campaign so YOU could experience first-hand the despair the children of Greer and Kellerman (if any) may very well be experiencing.
Now, if you can tell me that you have never made a driving or other mistake, that you go through your life absolutely faultless, well then maybe I'd listen to you. But people, including law enforcement officers, do make mistakes.
I mean your "logic" is as follows:
Police are not supposed to shoot innocent people.
Policeman Charlie Smith shot John Jones, who was an innocent bystander.
Therefore, since Smith did something a "perfect" police officer should not do, without knowing any other facts, Smith is a murderer.
That is your reasoning process.
I notice you and Paul have never
responded to the very logical theorem that Greer and Kellerman did not know which direction the shots were coming from. Had they determined the shots were from the front, the best reaction for Greer might have been to accelerate backwards as fast as he could, even if he had to hit the car behind him.
See also Charles' post above. Man, he thinks like a conspirator! There is logic to what he suggests, just like the logic in his suggestion that the "threats" in Chicago, Miami and Tampa may have been the conspirators deliberately crying wolf.
All I can say is shame on you and Paul for besmirching a man who is probably (I would say at least 99.9%) innocent. The only "weasle room" I give myself is that almost anything is possible.
