“This is a situation that is happening, Amy, here in Denver; but as you well know, it’s happening all over this country. Police officers are the only people that we give a free pass when they exercise a lapse in judgement. And I don’t think we can continue to do that. We must hold them accountable. Yes, it’s a dangerous job, but you know it’s a dangerous job when you take the job. We don’t give the mechanic a free pass for a lapse in judgement. We don’t give the surgeon a free pass when there’s a lapse in judgement. But we continue, throughout this country– District Attorneys–continue to give police officers these free passes for their lapse in judgement.”
