Lynch on Haste indictment dismissal

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The judge dismissed the indictment due to concerns he had regarding instructions given to the grand jury and we agree with his decision. No police officer ever wants to draw their weapon and have to make a life and death decision in a split second. But in this dangerous profession as we try to rid neighborhoods of guns, crime and drugs sometimes we must. We firmly believe that given the proper instructions in this case, this officer would not have been indicted in the first place.”
