Another police-caused death in Bend, Oregon. Our law enforcement officers can make mistakes. We all know that and we understand that. But the current process

Another police-caused death in Bend, Oregon. Our law enforcement officers can make mistakes. We all know that and we understand that. But the current process seems to be that we either find them guilty of intentional wrongdoing or just forget about it. That's not acceptable. I don't want to see them go to jail if it was an unintentional killing, but how about, at a minimum, they are required to find another line of work? I don't mean move to another town and be a police officer there, I mean permanently banned from police work. Find another career, on in which you don't carry a gun! Unless there is some serious consequence to these police-caused killings, they will likely continue and increase in frequency. I haven't been in Bend that long, and I can think of three. These kinds of shootings are in the news way too often. Something is wrong.

 
Name withheld, Bend.
