Nick and Peter discuss the acquittal of former St Louis police officer Stockley. The verdict led to violent protests. Peter thinks the preponderance of the evidence — and then some — suggests the officer was guilty as charged (though that isn’t the legal standard for conviction in a criminal case). Peter can’t get over the fact a cop brought an unauthorized AK-47 pistol on patrol. Nick thinks that AK is less of a big deal, and thinks the case is more nuanced – or at the least, has fewer far-reaching implications for the department as a whole.
