    Cops Fired for Serving in the military!!!

    Police officers suspended for military service | Fox News Video

    These officers "upset" other officers on their department because they couldn't take vacations because they where on deployment! Then the cops that where deployed where suspended !!!!!!!

    Every Cop that complained on record should be fired, then shipped to communist china!

    Its against the law to fire somebody because they are active duty/in the reserves. So the department suspends them and puts it in their records. Foolish.

    More on the story here: Attorney: Bloomfield officers may lose job over military leave allegations - NorthJersey.com

    Sure makes one wonder about the leadership in that police department.

    How about getting the other side of the story? The department says they were suspended for claiming military service for taking time off when it was not due to military service. We don't know the whole story yet, but automatically assuming that one side is right and the other is wrong without waiting for the facts doesn't seem right.

    Agree, but find it odd that the story dates back to events alleged to have happened 5 -6 years ago.

    If true, it seems odd that it became an issue now. "Gotta be" a lot more to the story on both sides.

    Let's slow down. Surely the department knows its against the law to suspend / fire officers for military deployment. I think there must be more to this story.

    Last year I lost 11 vacation days due to being denied because we were short staffed largely because of people away on military training / deployment. Year before that, I lost 13 days. It sucks. I earned those days, and lost them. Yup, I complained. However, I absolutely respect and admire those who were serving, and I would have it no other way (except maybe having enough people working to not be short staffed all the time).

    I think anyone would gripe a little about losing their vacation time, no matter the reason. But I have to think there is more to this story than getting suspended for being on military deployment. Sort of like the guy that gets arrested for public intox because he was naked up on a lamp pole screaming and pooping himself. His story will always be "I was arrested for asking people what time it was!" Can you believe it!

    I agree....let us see...one side of a story, military members involved.....must be true because we want it to be true (that it is not their fault). Not nearly enough details.

    "The township is saying that now, four or five years after these occurrences, that they should not have been paid for the traveling to comply for the military order or for being treated on base."

    This sounds like the 0bummer PD in NJ. Serving their Country AND Community.... must be 'Right Wing Radicals', like Napolitano stated in 2009.

    One agency I worked for fired an Officer after she had served in the first Gulf War. She wasn't that great an officer and they had been looking to get rid of her before and some one who wasn't that great a supervisor took what they thought would be the easy way. It didn't work.

    The courts will work this out. Police on police is unusual but then again so is todays world. Five years sounds like a cover up just got blown.

    Call me crazy but in the state of NJ... I would bet dollars to donuts that these men are being unfairly targeted. Either they PO'd someone before they left , or this PD is just plain anti military. Departments like this need a good HOUSE CLEANING !
