    On the one hand, good. On the other hand, I hope the town will pursue getting him decertified, and I hope (a little; I’m not optimistic) that the feds will prosecute him under 18 USC 241, conspiracy to deny civil rights. Certainly that’s what he deserves. But bad cops almost never get what they truly deserve.
