I don't think it would have much of impact and not sure its a good idea to penalize all police officers for a few bad ones. If other officers are not already motivated to weed out the bad ones then I question whether or not those turning a blind eye should be officers either.
From what I read, the officer involved had a bad track record. I'd guess there had been prior "Close" calls that led up to this tragic incident, and probably a few fellow officers could see that this likely to happen, but didn't want to be the one who crossed the thin blue line.
