"Don't let them just do you like that or what neighborhood you in or wherever you stay at," Dubose said. "Just don't let them stereotype. Always believe in what you believe in."

Sheriff John Rutherford issued a statement, saying in part, "The same people who do not trust the criminal justice and legal systems, which are bound by evidence, fact, and state law, will not trust a civilian review system. They are not bound by evidence, fact or state law. What citizen review boards do is politicize what should always be an evidence-based, fact finding, and legal process. I will not subject my officers to a less than legal process that does not rely on evidence, facts, or the law."
