    He's no different than any other drunk who smash's a cruiser window. Take him to jail.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    Imagine that, police officers can have moments of poor judgement during traumatic times in their lives too.

    I would say treat him the same as any other person should be. Give him a reprimand, have him pay for the window and apologize to the other officer involved and the girlfriend.

    It's amazing how much less legal activity would be required if we were all just more polite and able to act civilized.

    Sorry, but I could not disagree more. Well, I actually agree with your last sentence.

    As for the middle part, though...

    When I was a patrol officer, if a drunk kicked out my back window (happened more than once), he/she was charged with destruction of city property, at a minimum. Usually public drunk; disturbing the peace; etc as well. The same charges (or the local equivalent) should apply to this idiot. Let him slide with an "apology" and he will just do it again. It sounds like he needs to seek some treatment for a drinking problem.

    But he is different that an ordinary citizen, he knows full well the legal repercussions of his actions. LEO's should be held to a higher standard than average Joe Blow.

    I think the police chief in our town would have this officer look for another job. He holds to a higher standard and makes that known during the recruitment process. Result has been very good support and assistance for the force in the community. The officers that are successful here are recruited by the better paying departments. The others are allowed to leave on their own terms. Turnover is approximately 12% per year. Most to better opportunities.

    Don't get me wrong, I think LEOs should be held to a higher standard than civilians, and I don't think they should get special treatment. And I think I might have come across as an apologetic/sympathizer in my last reply(which I'm not). Obviously, it depends on the history and situation for each individual, but if this the first time he has ever had any incident, I don't think it should ruin his life. Document it, deal with the sittuation and move on. Now is this followed a pattern of behavior in line with previous behavior, then throw the book at him. It is hard to say without all the details.

    They are. Not only do they face the legal system, they also loose their jobs.
    Get fired from one department, good luck getting hired on another.

    Sixto, true enough indeed. Although I must say this officer exercised extraordinarily bad judgment. We once had an off-duty officer get drunk, flee from on-duty officers, then proceed to fight when he got pulled over, necessitating a 10-17 assist an officer radio call for help, it was several minutes before anyone figured out he was "one of use" we don't need cops like that on my department

    Destruction of city property. Holding cell until sober (not with other detainees). Let him sign his own bail the next morning then let the judge set sentence based on other like cases. If the Chief fires him or has mandatory alcohol counseling and anger management then thats up to the Chief. Do you think when a LEO is pulled over for speeding he gets a bigger fine than others?
