Officer in Central Florida Shooting Cleared

Dennis D.R. Smith, a reserve officer for the Orlando Police Department, has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the shooting death of Central Florida campus police officer Mario Jenkins, left, who was working an undercover operation to combat illegal drinking before the Central Florida-Marshall game on Sept. 24. But authorities said Michael John Young, who allegedly grabbed Jenkins in a bear hug during a pregame confrontation between Jenkins and a tailgater, will face charges of felony battery on a law enforcement officer and a misdemeanor charge for obstructing a law enforcement officer.

Another OPD officer who killed someone cleared in Orlando? What a surprise. This case might be different, but the DA never fails to clear an officer in Orlando, no matter what is the circumstance. It's the definition of corruption. And the Orlando daily keeps running this crap like it's news.
