  1. If it was a cop that got murdered, then cops would do evheytring they can by the book, to get their killer. However, we also know that the cops also break the law to catch the killer although they have been known to not get the killer and instead send an innocent person to prison.It is amazing that America is awash in guns; however, it doesn’t make the streets safe for ordinay people from street criminals, organized crime, corporate crime, white collar crime, computer crime, and corrupt, incompetent, dishonest police.We seems to have enough evidence to convict Rick Scott of Medicare fraud; however, he was allowed to walk and now is the Governor of Florida.
