I found out today that my partner’s best friend’s husband was involved in a very high-profile police shooting/murder. He is a police officer, and he is now charged with filing a false report in order to cover for the officer who actually pulled the trigger. His account of the situation is completely at odds with the video footage released to the public. He obviously is in the wrong here, and it is being recommended that he is fired. My partner basically refuses to believe he did anything wrong, and is claiming we “don’t know the whole story.” Well, we kind of do...the video clearly shows what happened, and it is clearly different than the report issued by best-friends-husband. I feel terrible for best-friend, but I can’t bring myself to show sympathy for their situation. I don’t know how to navigate this.
