Good. He shouldn't even have a career. He should have been fired when it was discovered he was participating in a coverup.

I don't know about that.

He sounds as if he's suffered enough, privately, to never again desire to cover up for a rogue cop. This guy could be the very example of a, good cop, who needed an instant like this for his goodness to be brought to the forefront of his life.

Fuck no. Once a bad cop, always a bad cop. There must be zero tolerance for official misconduct among police officers. His lie could have put an innocent person in prison for years while a psychopath with a badge continued to abuse people. He needs to be put in prison for lying to the FBI, and perjury. His guilty conscious doesn't make up for what he's done. One lie by a cop raises a reasonable doubt in every case they've ever worked. Good cops are good cops because they choose to be decent human beings not because they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar and feel bad about it.

As a cop (or any one for that matter) you should already have the mentality that telling the truth is the best option, not realizing it after lying which resulted in having negative effects in your personal life.

I'm conflicted, morally he should be railroaded, but from a pragmatic point of view you are probably right. Especially because the attitude of once a bad cop always a bad cop is only going to get the police to circle the wagons even tighter when shit goes down in their departments. Some praise, keeping your job, and immunity might get a whole lot of accessory cops to turn on the real violent piece of shit ones.

I applaud your compassion. But I think the law enforcement culture has gotten too out of hand. We have police taking the stand that it is not their job to protect citizens. Tthat the slightest sign of hesitation on the part of anyone they chose to detain constitutes a threat worthy of death. No. I believe the only way to get these guys under control is a policy of zero tolerance for abuse or corruption.

Let this be a lesson to you, rogue cops, that if you are deceitful and dishonest and you think you got away with it;

your local mirror is not buying it!

Yes, but usually only in cases where a darkskinned-Black man is dead. Outside of that, justice is expected to be reached for

Oh surprise, surprise...

The LEO didn't understand that breaking the law actually has consequences and ramifications, legally, professionally, and personally.

This genius needs his certification yanked. I don't care how sorry he sounds. Not only should he be fired, he should not be allowed to work in law enforcement.
