Finally a D.A. with commen sense. You have a Police Officer that has devoted his life to be a benifit to society and a credit to the human race. Then there's the total waste of space gang banger that has done nothing but be a disease to humanity. Then Police Officer kick's said scum bag in the head........."SO WHAT"!!!!! They should have fed him to a wood chipper
