    Deputies shot and killed a man inside his Georgia home last month following an apparently bogus tip they received from a confessed meth addict and thief.

    isolated incident
    They keep using that term. I don't think it means what they think it means...

    I can just see the cops heading for the house, maybe one of them wondering and the others saying 'shut up, it don't matter, if he makes a move...well, dead men don't wear plaid'.

    I am guessing that the thief wanted his hat back, lying is acceptable when their is a hat involved.

    No charges will be filed. The cops were working on information obtained in good faith, etc...

    A civil suit will not be successful...or, a settlement, with a gag order attached, will be reached.

    Using procedures which unnecessarily endanger the lives of innocent civilians? Unacceptable.

    All I would find acceptable would be the termination of the officers' employment, along with a full departmental review of procedures and training, and CHANGES thereof.
