30. Sounds More Like DWB Than DUI

Austin, TX, police are constantly in the news for rogue behavior. Only last week they were in the news for questionable police practices and while I don't remember the details of that story they were involved last August in a questionable killing. In this case a man showed up at a bank during normal business hours only to find the bank door locked so he rattled the door to get the attention of a bank employee he could see inside the bank. Police were already on the scene due to an earlier robbery there and when the police approached the man took off running and the officer took off after him, firing a shot that hit him in the neck, killing him. It was the 6th police shooting in just over 8 months.
