canoer Lyr Req: Amadou Diallo (19) RE: Lyr Req: Amadou Diallo 28 Feb 00

Chet, it is true that anyone becoming a cop in any major metropolitan area is stepping into a meatgrinder. Hardly anyone can imagine the pressures without having been there.

However, one fact is understood by most everyone on the force and off. A cop using deadly force will be protected to the maximum extent possible, regardless of guilt or innocence. In the Amadou trial, the prosecution numerous times let stand questionable defense allegations. The jury received only a sanitized version of events and character. They could only play the hand they were dealt. But the cards were stacked.
