It was a plea bargain. He can indeed now go to work at Burger King. Not really proper justice but society overall is better served.

One less bad cop out there-always a good thing. Tried to follow as best I could from over seas. Is it true Ms Bland made 5 phone calls to her family for help and nail money? Calls that went unanswered and unreturned; and that her family didn't seem interested to help her out?
If that's REALLY what happened, why did they then act so horribly grieved and concerned after she passed away?

Her family really isn't the issue. They could have been terrible people but they had nothing to do with what happened the day she was arrested. The officer instigated the situation by not doing what he was trained to do. Make the stop and then go on your way. He got pissed because he felt he wasn't adequately respected for demanding she do something he had no place to ask her to do.

Little penis syndrome.

I don't think he would have ever been able to work in law enforcement again regardless of any agreement.

One wouldn't have thought that Timothy Loehmann would have been hired again either.

He had no reason to arrest her.

How does that equate to his being responsible for her death? People get stopped, arrested, even wrongfully charged (and I'm not making a judgement on whether her arrest was wrongful, just saying if) all the time. 99.9% of them don't go and kill themselves. He had nothing to do with her death. She was clearly mentally unstable. And she had tried to kill herself before, WITHOUT having the excuse of being wrongfully arrested. So it's silly to try and connect the officer's actions to her death.
