Fair enough.

My thoughts (and just thoughts and suspicions) are that Mr Noor was seized upon as a diversity bean by a police department that wanted to virtue-signal. I suspect that he was probably not a stellar performer during pre-hire screening and testing or at the academy. I suspect that he probably did not perform very well during Field Training, either. In fact, I'm guessing he probably had no business being a cop, but he was just too special to not be a cop, in the view of the politicians of that city.

I don't know the average sentence around that area for a first-time offender with similar chargess. I have a very hard time seeing his actions meeting the elements for Murder. I seriously doubt other first-time offenders would get that amount of time in a manslaughter case that had the same level of intent as an element of the crime. I know that in both states that I was a cop in (CA and AK), only a cop could possibly get a sentence that harsh in similar circs.
Life’s barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.
