Despite 5(?) citizens deaths at the hands of law enforcement in as many years, and despite the Ferguson riots, you'd think they'd wait until the investigation is completed in the Tommy McClain killing before promoting the officer in charge!
Shame on local media for regurgitating police claims that the shooting was "justifiable" weeks before the investigation is complete.
