Another day, another cop

The news is out: [Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Rick Maglione has been removed from his position — nearly six weeks after a member of his SWAT team shot a peaceful Black Lives Matter protester in the face with a foam rubber bullet as other officers laughed and joked about firing potentially lethal weapons at civilians.
“The city manager made a decision this morning to make a change in leadership,” Major Frank Sousa told the Miami Herald. “The chief is not relieved of duty. He will remain a member of our organization in a position to be determined.”
Assistant Chief Karen Dietrich will serve as acting chief, police said.]

There is no way to salvage anyone in law enforcement right now. Start from scratch.
