interestingly I thought "that's a pretty good photo!" I mean, he looks like a pretty nice, decent looking guy in that mug shot. Kinda f'd up actually. On another note, Z's brother was interviewed on Piers Morgan CNN last night and he just sounded like and idiot (the brother that is). He was providing obviously coached responses and so biased in his answers to further Z's version or story as to what transpired.
Also, debating whether the directive to stand down was a dispatcher, actual police officer or even if it were a mail person or firefighter I don't see it going well for Z if he ignored the "suggestion", binding or not and his actions resulted in an unlawful death... there must be something critical from that point forward, for had he followed that suggestion, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
