Except I’m mistaken, it appears that evidently the best menace of murder in Presque Isle is from regulation enforcement. The current killing by police is the third in the previous few years, and nobody I spoke to may recall one earlier than these regulation enforcement shootings. I’ve learn what I can about these killings by police, together with the legal professional normal’s reviews. These reviews are strictly restricted in scope. They solely think about the instant act of the taking pictures, not what might need been completed otherwise to keep away from a deadly consequence. AG reviews solely seem many months after the taking pictures.
I’d like some perception into why these killings proceed to happen. Do officers have ample coaching, in issues corresponding to psychological well being, and de-escalation of crises? Are officers adequately screened earlier than employment? I feel it’s time the town and its police division present a public response, and knowledge on their plan to keep away from police killings sooner or later.
