Although it should have been an obvious decision to charge the cop, especially since he was told to hold his fire before he fired his gun, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has never charged a cop for an on-duty shooting in the 24

Friday, January 20th, 2017
How many shots does it take for a cop to pass out in their patrol vehicle while in uniform and on-duty as a police dog helplessly sits in the backseat?

St. Croix County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Fowler ended up having a .23 blood alcohol content – nearly three times the legal limit.
In fact, Fowler still had the squad car in drive with his foot on the brake when responding officers found him passed out from his drunken stupor.

Thursday, October 6th, 2016
The Georgia deputies who tasered a man to death after his family called 911 for help will not face charges in what the family’s attorney calls “one of the most horrible decisions” he’s ever seen a district attorney make.
The tasering death was captured on body cam footage worn by the Coweta County sheriff’s deputies, showing them repeatedly taser Chase Sherman until he finally dies.
“Ok, I’m dead. I’m dead,” Sherman tells them as the life escapes him.
But the deputies kept tasering him, telling him to “stop fighting” and “stop resisting” while piling their weight on him.

But Tawon Boyd’s case is unique in that he was the one who called 911 for help.
