    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.

    Civilian review boards are the only thing that will reign in the thin blue line. Expecting the police to police the police is sorta like expecting Trupanzie to be honest, trustful and open minded.

    I think it needs to be a combination where a review board contains both so that police don't hunker down further. If the police are not involved in the review process, they will fight every single change, and use the legal system to delay even minor changes in policy, training, hiring, etc.
