A police officer comes home after a fifteen hour shift, goes to the wrong apartment, mistakes the resident for an intruder in “her apartment,” and shoots him dead. She’s been charged with manslaughter. My personal, uneducated opinion is manslaughter sounds right. I don’t think this was anything other than a mistake with horrific consequences. Nothing I’ve read shows that the officer had malicious intent. Still, everything I’ve learned since starting to carry a gun is that I am fully responsible to use my gun legally and properly. If I don’t, I will face charges.
So, why did the cops send narcotics to the dead man’s apartment and “let slip” there was marijuana? Exactly how is that relevant to the case at hand? She was not doing a drug bust.
