As I stated in my first post, my heartfelt prayers go out to his (Shane's) family. I have not seen those words uttered by one single other person on here. As you said, there are good and bad cops in every police department. Sadly, some people do not recognize that. Unfortunately, this is a public forum so anything can be written on here and people will take advantage of that. For example, the situation with our police department in Galloway has created a large rift among residents and frustrations are taken out on here. Just know that you are on my family's mind. If there is anything that I or others can do personally, please let us know.

It's great to see that the GTPD finally found the ability to speak kind words to families in distress. That's something that they did not do with my family. Rather they ridiculed, trashed, and harassed my family for months after an incident one night.
