...Humphreys, a seven-year veteran, has used force more often than almost all of the other the 785 officers in the database.

Sounds like a stellar guy.

It's impossible to read this and not reflect back on previous studies/reports that show how a simple lopping off of the, relatively few, "high incident" cops -- would entirely change the world...

Sounds like a stellar guy.

That's why the public defender's office nicknamed him "Thumper".

Not the least bit suprised. Just backs up my previously held opinion on the incident. Chasse wasn't 'fallen' on, he was jumped on.

'Thumper' sounds so cute and Bambi-like. How about, 'Angel of Death'? Or 'Grim Reaper'?

Or how about just 'violent a**hole'?

Police officers who don't have the skills and temperment to handle the pressures of the streets should be reassigned to desk jobs.
