Law enforcement is a job where it is very easy to make a mistake. Police are dealing with people in a variety of mental states and yet they are expected to be better than human. You know what, sometimes everything in the rule book doesn't always work in the real world every time because police make bad mistakes just like anyone else. Officer Manney and his family don't deserve to lose his income for the remainder of his working life. He should be allowed to retire with a prorated pension or be given desk work with reduced pay for the remainder of his career. Every officer in the Milwaukee police department deserves to be fired like officer Manney because anyone of them would probably have done the same thing but I suppose that would not be very practical. Its more efficient just to give into a threatening mob and sacrifice one man so the whole city stays calm and violence is avoided.
