  1. Officers risk there lives everyday to capture the addicts. Then our judicial system fails them. A slap.on the hand and off you go. Sad!!

  2. Both individuals are facing multiple charges including felonies.. Where’s the slap on the hand here? I’m not defending the people involved but it’s not like they engaged in a shootout with the officer.
