I think at this point, what looks like murder should be assumed to be so. There is no pretense of rule of law, anymore. When the people that are committing the crimes are also the ones investigating them, there's no "waiting for all the facts to come out." The facts aren't going to come out. We'll never get the facts that matter, we'll get the facts that the criminals committing the crimes want us to get.
When the institutions that enforce order are committing the crimes all the "rule of law" stuff goes out the window. There won't be a fair trial, there won't be an indictment. The only judgments we can make are now going to be based on incomplete information that is provided by those that are committing the crimes.
It's all fucked. Properly fucked.
