Dan O’Donnell did an outstanding piece of journalism with this interview of ex-officer Christopher Manney. Manney was the officer who was cleared of any wrongdoing in the self-defense killing of Dontre Hamilton in Milwaukee. Despite being fully justified, Manney was crucified in the media, hung out to dry by the police chief, and driven into hiding by threats to his family and himself. The guy’s life was destroyed despite the fact that he made the hard decisions – and correct decisions – in a split second that we expect from police officers every day.

Take the time and listen to the whole interview.
