A Punishment That Doesn't Fit
Denver Manager of Safety Alvin LaCabe announced Friday he is suspending the officer involved in the deadly shooting of Frank Lobato for 90 days without pay. LaCabe said the use of deadly force by Officer Ranjan Ford was not reasonable.
Ford shot and killed Lobato in his bed on July 11, 2004 because he thought Lobato was wielding a gun. It turned out to be a soda can.
Update (TL): My opinion on this is at 5280.
