Students claim the accused cops, Captain Joseph Rapoo and Constable John Slender may have access to witnesses.

The first officer, Constable John Slender, says he intends to plead not guilty. Captain Joseph Rapoo is accused of giving the orders for the shots to be fired. Ipid investigators say the affidavits were not plausible and this is the reason they were arrested.
