Thank you for NOT posting a photo. I don't know when 'innocent until proven guilty' stopped being the rule of law nor when people became so ridiculously hateful but there is no reason to post a picture and cause the officer more stress and possibly harm to him and his family.

Not knowing the circumstances surrounding the incident one can only hope that the officer will be no billed and put back to full duty.

Thank you for not publishing this officers photo!
I too feel that this officer and his family, have been placed in danger from a public often all too willing and ready to extract vigilante vengeance before knowing the facts of an ongoing investigation.
I would hope that our community would show more restraint and civility than others around our country, but one never knows the minds and hearts of others.

I wish articles with this subject would read "One of our Officers were once again forced to use his side arm to protect himself from criminals on our streets due to the rallying against our men in blue and emboldening criminals to retaliate against them from our past administration".
