    About time, eh? I still can’t believe they allowed him to move to Nevada.

    Regardless, it’s probably best to keep our expectations in check. The officers that fatally shot Sean Bell were arrested, too.

    WTF was he doing in NEVADA? I’m very disturbed that he wasn’t detained and questioned immediately. I’m with black… the arrest doesn’t mean much.

    shani: he said he was there because of death threats.

    My understanding is that the ex-officer went to Nevada to visit friends and to try and stay out of the spotlight. His attorney knew where he was and informed him of the warrant. He gave himself up to the local cops without a fight and is not contesting extradition to CA. I agree and am surprised as well that he wasn’t told to stay in CA and has not been questioned.
