I just knew this was going to get swept under the rug. There was no doubt in my mind. But evidently, there's at least one grand jury out there making some sense.
Now getting a Harris County jury to convict is entiely different, and we have yet to hear whether or not the fact that Tolan's car was "reported stolen" was a complete crock of [redacted], but I bet it'll all come out in the wash. If that cop lied about the report of a stolen car, his hand has been caught in the cookie jar. If not it's going to be a closer call, although the shooting itself should be able to stand alone as a disgrace and a crime.
Good for Tolan, and good for the rest of us to have a little light shone on Bellaire PD's tactics.
