      Police get that kind of presumption. If they feel threatened, they can use appropriate force. The two women were threatening Bologna. As for slugging someone, I would assume it was "fighting words," but police might not need those. Cy Vance said that he couldn't see absolute proof that there weren't threats or abuse, so the cops couldn't be charged.

      Yes, if the rest of us got similar presumption, we'd be much happier.

      Everyone is innocent of some crime.
