    drunk behind the wheel with a loaded gun!

    if you are not "law enforcement" do you think you would have gotten the same treatment? no dui charges, and right back to work! I guess It is that blue privilege think, after all it is the thin blue line that divides us from them,,,,,,,,,
    I have never harvested an animal but I have KILLED QUITE A FEW !

    I would rather have a gun in my hand than a cop on the phone,,,,,,,,,

    Not right that is for sure. Anyone else is going to get DUI big time. Looks like the town needs to clean up the police department starting at the top.

    That particular officer may have a problem. One doesn’t enter on duty and then consume alcohol to the point of passing out after he parks his unmarked vehicle in the median. If he was an alcoholic, he’d park in an area that would see little, if any, traffic. There’s probably more to the story but it probably won’t be aired.

    Ya, he got preferential treatment but then again, sometimes a motorist will not get a citation if warranted.

    In my opinion, that officer had to have one hell of a good reason in order to maintain his employment, as drinking on duty, driving official vehicle while intoxicated, losing consciousness due to consuming alcohol while on duty etc etc - that would get you fired on the spot in most LE departments.

    He did get “punished” as being reduced in rank plus a few days in the hay probably amounted to $10,000.00 or more - as going from a corporal to patrolman is probably $3 to 6,000.00 a year and if time in grade before promotion eligibility is 3 or more years - Yup, big financial kick in the arse.

    First, he should not be wearing a badge anymore. He crossed that line. That said, this situation is an isolated one, just does not happen this way .......I know.

    He and the officers that didn't do their job should be fired.

    Law enforcement should be held to a higher standard than a private citizen, maybe more so than any other government agency. They're paid, by the private citizen, to enforce laws voted in by the public. If they're incapable of adhering to the laws they're called to and have sworn an oath to enforce, they should cease to be considered capable of performing their job. There's no reason or extenuating circumstance that should ever excuse this sort of conduct. End of story. Anyone involved in sweeping this under the rug, should also lose their jobs.
