    Why? Why was this man a (an) LEO?

    I don't like to bash cops... I don't like it when others do...

    Then, I see something like this... perhaps it's sensationalism by a foreign yellow journalistic paper... But then, they seem to have all the facts and documentation... And it stains all LEOS...

    Why, after being expelled from academy, was he hired... Why, after being dismissed from his first post was he hired by another department... why .. well the list goes on...

    We think we should hold Chiefs of Police to higher standards and fire them for "fraternization"... but some departments keep hiring the dregs that this man represents... I don't understand the logic.

    Not only did he keep his job, but was promoted!!!! What in the world is wrong with that city that they would keep rehiring this slimeball?!

    In fairness to him, once he was charged with trying to board a plane with a gun he probably started leaving his weapons at home so he wouldn't slip up again. I agree it sounds like the department was trying to find a way to get rid of him. Shameful...

    I would have to question an article on guns published in a British newspaper. Maybe it's true, but don't take their word for it.

    WRT U.S. or foregin news, I will say the foregin news agencies don't have the same 'agendas' U.S. news agencies do........ I like to look up certin storise in overseas sites just to get their takes and opinions. They do report 'things' that 'our' news sites don't.

    Regardless, this doofus never needed to, nor should have, ever worked as a cop.

    Anyone ever heard the line: "Where there's smoke, there's usually fire" ?

    Once, possibly a mistake. Twice, unlikely, but still a doubt. After the 437th arrest, and/or discipline, he's probably a scumbag who needs to be gotten rid of.

    Wow. It sounds like a lot more people than him need to be relieved of duty. Namely every one that hired him after 1990.

    Sounds like this police department is a Union Shop.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    Now then...forget for a moment he was a cop. Would your opinion of him be any different? Why does everyone want to believe that cops are beyond reproach? Simply because someone wears a blue uniform with a badge and a gun does not mean they always do the right thing!

    Sorry for anyone from Opa-locka, but I've been there and it sucks.lol
    I can imagine how their PD is run. Low budget, I assume, which might explain this jewel of a peace officer.
