PBA ON DA'S RECOMMENDATION OF
NO JAIL TIME FOR LIANG

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Police officers are human beings and as such can make mistakes while risking their lives to protect the community. Criminalizing a mistake, even a tragic accidental discharge like this, serves no good purpose. The reasons cited by the DA for justifying no jail time in this tragedy are the very same reasons that the officer should not have been indicted in the first place.“
