What is Often Attributed to Malice …

is often just plain stupidity. Every town, including the small borough I grew up in, had a cop where everyone thinks, “I can’t believe they let that guy walk around with a gun.” In big cities there are more people, and much bigger departments.

    Pretty funny, I mean a crime was potentially committed but the officer didn’t use any common sense. It sounds like she didn’t get any backup before going into the suspects house even if she received consent to do so.

    She should have found additional eyewitnesses if possible and found the shell casings as well unless a revolver was used. Then tried for a search warrant.

    I doubt you’re going to find a judge willing to issue a warrant for this without multiple unrelated witnesses and evidence of some kind. Or the officer themselves seeing it happen.

    Adam – The officer didn’t think it prudent to keep the witness within earshot – and eyesight. And. like most witnesses in North Philly, this one walked.

    I’ve found that stupidity and malice often travel together.

    And according to Dianne Feinstein, this woman should be allowed to carry a firearm and I shouldn’t.
