Check forgery (using a check from a stolen car he impounded) and attempted theft of valuables from the evidence room:

Assault and battery (off duty, punched someone while displaying his CCW pistol to prevent self-defense by the guy he punched):

Hitting girlfriend and beating her 15-year-old son who intervened:

Grand Theft Auto, etc.:

These are all news stories from the past few months.

Some of those charged may be found not guilty, of course.

But it's not just some nutcase in South Africa that makes me adamant about citizens' right to self defense, and serious restraints on the power of government employees.
