What ever came of this?
It's amazing how "hush hush" this incident - excuse me, this TRAVESTY - has been! If a policeman on the street beat a drug dealer to death, it would be ALL OVER THE NEWS nationwide! But there has been NO follow up on this story and no results have been revealed to the public. I'm outraged and want an answer!!!
