I agree he should be punished but 1.5 yrs and never serve or own a gun again because a drunk multiple offender endagering the public wouldn't listen to him? Really? The guy wasn't even really hurt. I think a suspension, retraining, community service would be good. This guy got fked cause he lost it on a very stressfull job that no one wants to do in a shithole town. All he gonna get from this is bitterness and possibly beat up in jail by scum he put away.

punishment was way overboard as they stated in the news article that was done so the community would have faith in the system.

Have you seen the video? That son of a bitch had lost control and let his rage overwhelm his judgement. It is NOT acceptable for any cop to act that way. He flat out assaulted the guy handcuffed and belted in the back seat. How about a hog tie? He had at least one other officer right there. There is no excuse and he got punished. Thank god there was video of this or he would have gotten away with this as he and his fellow officer lied their ass off and said he assulted them as they trump up the felony resisting arrest charges.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.


(full disclosure: I am assuming this is the same incident. It sounds like it but I could be wrong)

Yes I believe we are talking about the same incident. I never said he shouldn't be punished but 1.5 yrs? Really? A guy spends his life serving his country and community, has PTSD, his wife just left him and he succoms to the stress of dealing with the scum of society in Milwaukee (in case you haven't been there it's a total shithole) and wrongfully I admit, assaults a repeat offender drunk driver who won't comply with instructions to quit damaging taxpayer property because he has to go to the bathroom. Did I miss anything? So the first time he does anything wrong, didn't shoot anyone or permanently injure anyone, but hits a drunk (let's face it, handcuffed or not a drunk isn't going to affectively defend themself anyway) we throw him in prison make him a felon for life and potentially may be killed in the general population by "real" criminals he took off the street to make people like us safer. Why the FK would anyone, EVER become a police officer?

I just spent the last few days dealing with a cop that wanted to have my business partner brought up on charges for "false statements" and impeding an investigation. What brought that on? My partner gave the cop an old business card that had the wrong phone number. This was also involving a civil matter, not criminal. He also lied about what he said when I was discussing this with his SGT. I was truly pissed that he was not man enough to admit he had made a mistake in front of his superior when he had already said it to me. Also, some friends of mine knew this cop and described him as a good guy. Bahh. You wear the badge long enough and the power and lies go to your head.

Yeah, business men and CEO's never let power go to their head or cheat anyone, do they :roll: Maybe soon we will have the technology to just make robot police that never make a mistake, have feelings or get stressed out. That will be sweet, just like Terminator. Hell let's just get rid of cops all together, then they will never get out of hand.

The last time I checked a CEO does not have the power to throw you in jail based on a lie he fabricated. Sorry, that arguement just does not hold water with me.

Now please understand that I am not anti-police! I have a great deal of respect for those that follow morality (not to be confused with the law). I do have an issue with cops that lie as part of their job. I did a ride along with a friend of mine once and after seeing his write-ups on his felony stops and the lies and half-truths he wrote down I no longer held him in the same esteem that I once had. In fact, that was the begining of the opening of my eyes to how an embarrasing number of police act in their normal duties.
