Dr. Salvatore J. Culosi, better known in my hometown area as Sal, was swarmed by a SWAT team while they tried to serve a petty gambling warrant. The person who shot and accidentally killed him is a 17-year vet of the police force, and by all accounts should not have had his finger on the trigger during the arrest of an unarmed suspect - yet no charges are being pressed. His family has started a blog dedicated to getting Sal justice here.
Sal seems to me to be any of the guys I grew up with - affable, good job, little house, close circle of friends - when circumstances went horribly wrong. Anyone who has known an ACTUAL bookie knows the difference between a pro and someone making a sports bet. Necessitating a SWAT team? And the immediate use of deadly force on an unarmed citizen? This smacks of unaccountability to me, and of a general sense of "protect your own" among a police force who should rather live by the motto "protect and serve". Something just smells wrong.
