Police Dept.Oh, by the way, the reason the Alexandria Police Department is supporting this shooting without an investigation is because the cop is one of theirs. Understandable that they would stand up for their brother officer, but the difference is that they give no such consideration for other people. We're not one of them.
If some regular Joe like me were on my way to church and shot it out with scumbags, do you think I would be given the same support? Me neither.
