As Paul Harvey's the rest of the story. Walker has a history of violence and lying. in 2005 officer Walker threatened a man with his service pistol. He used his position to threaten a neighbor. When dealing with internal affairs he was found to be lying about his actions and testimony. This is a thug who may have gotten away with manslaughter. Of course, the idiots in MD were saving this information for his "sentencing"...nice plan, eh?
