Review Board Clears Columbus Officers Who Shot A Cop Killer

Franklin County Sheriff's Office

The Columbus police firearms review board has cleared two officers of wrongdoing in the shooting of a convicted cop killer.  The board says Lieutenant Paul Ohl and Officer Glenn Thivener were justified in shooting Lincoln Rutledge last year. Rutledge had just shot Officer Steve Smith during a confrontation at his estranged wife's home. Rutledge is serving a life sentence.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
