"Only choice now is General population or Isolation"



I'm thinking Protection Unit because the guy is a LEO. But I have seen former cops in GP.

"Approaching on foot" ??? With empty hands??? I sincerely hope no one here thinks that is justification for the use of deadly force.
In a situation that's already been marred by aggression, a case could be made.

However, two important questions remain: could Walker have disengaged from the scene, and was he a party to escalation? The answer to both appears to be yes.

Seems like the newbe cop thought he could just shoot anyone, sad thing is he probably would of got away with it if he had been on duty
At the end of this article it states Walker been with the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office for quite some time.

Definitely an unfortunate situation for all the families involved which will have to live with the consequences of this short heated indecent of rage.

I miss read the first article, I probably confused the "New Jersey Police Officer" with "New Police Officer".
