The article correctly pointed out that the Baltimore County Police Department is not blameless in the issue of unjustified use of deadly force. Just because a police board rules that a killing was justified doesn’t mean the killing was actually justified.
Waiting for a state law on police reform is just an excuse, it's not a valid reason to delay this important issue.
Requiring other officers to intervene when someone is being choked to death when the situation is actually under control should have been part of police training for decades. It’s unconscionable that we have to pass a law for that and it’s despicable that the county council couldn’t manage to do it.
