Gresham officer involved in deadly crash resigns

The Gresham police officer who ran a red light and hit a mini van has resigned. Officer Joshua Linstrom, who ran a red light, hitting a mini van and killing Marino Sanchez-Sanches, has resigned. A 'Grand Jury" cleared Linstrom after an investigation, but on September 11th, the officer decided to leave the force. I did not hear his reason.

A Parently contributes: It appears that someone in the Gresham Police department command has a firmer grasp on what is right or wrong than the DA or the "grand" freakin jury. He was given the ultimatum-resign or be fired. More sense than Sandy or Clackamas County, at least.
