Firing a police officer is no easy task, and when a law enforcement agent faces the loss of his or her job, the process is rarely quick.
                     
 Law enforcement experts say two key factors, plus a political climate that has led to intensified scrutiny of police, helped drag Miller's case outside of the molasses-like disciplinary proceedings that often frustrate civil rights advocates.

Johnson said the termination had to do with decisions he made before the fatal shooting rather than the shooting itself. That means the department did not have to wait for prosecutors to present the case to a grand jury, because they were not making the decision based on Miller's use of force.

Chief Johnson said he found     several "decisions made on scene to be troubling.” Miller was one of six officers who responded to reports that Taylor had broken into an auto dealership on Interstate 20 around 1 a.m. on Aug. 8.

           
                   
          
People and other Law Enforcement questioned? Why was Miller fired when other officers implicated in deadly shootings have not been?

Chief Johnson response!!!Miller had been a police officer for less than a year, according to a statement released by the Arlington Police Department earlier this week. He graduated from the police academy just five months ago.

Generally speaking, police officers remain on probationary status during the first year of their employment. Arlington police said Miller had no disciplinary record, but experts said probationary officers can be fired for almost any reason.
