  4. This man was found innocent and has endured enough stress that this incident has caused. There should be a policy put in place stating that once an officer has been cleared of his charge(s), that the story be deleted. This officer has proven himself to be an outstanding public servant. I will bet that if a story is ever published that commends this man for his selflessness, you guys will still continue to crap on his legacy.
