You can't have representatives of the State killing innocents and then just saying "Whoops, my bad" and then throwing money at the family.
Then you'll be pleased to know they don't do that. Rather, they give the representatives in question a paid vacation while the chief works out a version of the events that complies with department policies and returns a report that no evidence of wrong-doing was found.
As a bonus, they may find reasons to arrest and charge any survivors.
For that matter, I'm not sure of the utility of a state law reaffirming the Constitution's constitutionality. But it could be interesting to see what this one dissenter is all about.
And btw, orcas aren't near relations to dolphins, they are dolphins.
I'd warrant that both are more intelligent than you, even though I know better than to suggest intelligence is a linear scale.
I'm not interested in joining the death penalty debate, simply putting forth the notion that motionless does not equate painless.
