    We should have them bronzed. I wonder if an arbitrator will get him his job back?

    Cops only make bad decision when they are off duty.

      I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a cop make a good decision.

    “The child was not properly restrained, according to reports.”

    The child not being in a child safety seat is 100% illegal. The child is under 9 and in Tennessee anyone under 9 is required to be in a car seat or a booster seat. Why is he not in jail and why has his son not been taken from him for endangerment? When did police officers stop being American Citizens?

      it is a felony in NY, it is called Leandra’s Law, and for any kid under the age of 16, you will be charged with this crime

    The unions are corrupt as the day is long, until there are civilian boards that just let a prosecutor know what they find and it is made public, none of this will ever change. Also you shouldn’t be able to serve on this board more than once a year. Until we get rid of the corruption these things will continue. The police do not want to follow the rules, they want to be exempt from them.
