When Steven Wallen was shot and killed by two sheriff's deputies, the officers claimed the suspect used a pair of handcuffs as a lethal weapon. Further analysis of that day showed that much of what police told the media was false and that the deputies acted in ways that violated the use-of-force policy of the police department. Continued investigation revealed that the deputies involved were actually a training unit and were not the veteran law enforcement officers they were claimed to be in the paper.
