Erik Scott Case Update

Mike over at Confederate Yankee has an update on the Erik Scott case. As time has gone along, he has expanded his posts beyond the Scott case and is looking at possible not quite right goings-on within the Las Vegas law enforcement community. This time around he examines the possibility a new law (Introduced by Assemblyman John Hambrick, and supported by Chris Collins, President of the LV Police Protective Association, the police union) will be put in place that allows the District Attorney to call for a Coroner’s Inquest when an officer is involved with a citizen‘s death.  To me, this sounds like journalists watching over journalists. Can we really trust them to do the right thing? Or will decisions be made that will best serve the DA’s office and the police force, rather than the public at large?
