Have you filed charges on the cops that enter the home of a citizen illegally and executed him for riding an ATV in his own property?

any update on that cop who wasn't wearing a body cam and illegally entered a mans house to murder him?

Can you imagine the stupid, worthless cunt that the police chief was raised by? Only explanation for employing murderers. Please move to a communist country. All my friends in law enforcement don't need you making them look bad.
