As Trump would say; “You’re fired!”
What an idiot this guy is. Great paying job, secure for life, great benefits & pension, etc… He’s probably a drug addict too. You just wait & see, mark my words.

@G Alexander: I would like to see how this plays out. He is clearly guilty. Any regular citizen would go to jail. This corrupt criminal is a liar and a thief and should be removed from the force immediately. Lets see police privilege in action.
