Blue on Blue: Black = Dead

An undercover narcotics officer for Prince George’s County who came upon a gun battle Sunday outside a station was shot by a fellow officer who mistook him for an assailant, according to the department’s chief.
Of course, the brass are telling the world that t was a tragic accident, yadda, yadda, but this has happened before. Over a 28 year period studied, no white off-duty or plainclothes cop had been shot "by accident" by other cops. African-American and Latino cops have been shot and killed by other cops. The death of Officer Colson wasn't just some "tragic accident". But they'll pretend otherwise and their bosses, in and out of uniform, will pat them on the back and say "there, there, it's too bad."

Officer Colson's a hero for responding to a bad situation while knowing that he stood a risk of being gunned down by his fellow cops. He will get a stirring police funeral and nothing will ever change.
