While the court process and a trial will ultimately determine the outcome of this matter, the fact that a grand jury indicated a police officer illustrates a principle worth constant discussion. Too often those who work for the government are treated differently than typical citizens. In this case. the police officer will have to depend upo nthe same system that ensnares many, many more typically citizens. The more often government employees are held accountable in the same way and in the same manner as average citizens, the stronger are the chances for liberty, rather than do-gooder tyranny, in our society. Principle 12: Collective Action Has No Unique Moral Authority.
