My heart goes out to you in the loss of your son. Losing any family member is heart breaking.
I read your piece as objectively as possible and of course understand your taking your sons side but have never understood why anyone who considers themselves innocent goes on the run. Granted, she reported him and granted he had been incarcerated but be smart enough to NOT continue down the road that you know is a problem. The woman he was with I’m certain has a story all her own and then there is the real story. The officer isn’t a shining example for sure but none of this story would have had to be told. None of these lives would be shattered and your son would be alive………if he hadn’t decided to run.
