A community is outraged once again, as a police officer who gunned down a Sunday-school teacher in a church parking lot receives a paltry 3 year sentence in jail.
54-year-old Patricia Cook was shot to death in the face as she applied for a teaching position at a local church. An angry police officer accosted her in her vehicle because he thought it looked “suspicious.” Whatever transpired during that encounter frightened the woman into rolling up her window and attempting to drive away. The officer shot her in the face and kept firing as her Jeep drove into a telephone pole. She was unarmed, and by all accounts, an upstanding citizen who loved teaching children.
Officer Daniel Harmon-Wright claimed that his arm was stuck in the window as she drove away, but this was proven false because the shots were fired through the glass, and an eyewitness saw the events take place and contradicted the officer’s story. The officer was convicted, but he will never see prison… only jail. 36 months, assuming that doesn’t get reduced.
