I don't see how it wasn't justified. The 2nd throw was a tad bit excessive sure, but the inmate used deadly force.



Well I guess we should hurry up and get that in the books. Single Punch = Deadly force.

(if that were actually the case he would serve no time)

The biggest crime is that he was in jail for probably walking around with a bowl with no actual drugs. I'm guessing he had priors but that still sucks.

 

I do see this both ways. What the CO did was excessive but there is an assumption of risk and what he did was part of his job even though he obviously did it wrong. I think the average joe on the street gets felony manslaughter.

 

I don't have a huge problem with the sentencing or the charge. Wouldn't want it to be less.

 

Question I have is does he have his job back when he gets out?

No, it's a felony charge I believe. You cannot be in law enforcement with a felony.
