A man gets a cup of soda instead of water at a convenience store, charged as a felony, and eventually get prison time, has his picture splattered all over the internet and newspapers.

A police officer, sworn to uphold the law, leaves his squad car unsecured, exposing thousands of dollars of firearms and security equipment, endangering innocent citizens, and CHILDREN, who could have been killed to death by these stolen weapons, then has sex with a known prostitute just because he's horny and has the power.

Yet no pictures of him.

Also, he doesn't get fired. Want to bet you'd be fired for stealing anything from work?

"We look at not only the situation at hand, but also the totality of his entire career and work history," Vettel said

Um, really?

Because it seems that is exactly what you are NOT doing.

That seems overly dramatic.

I do believe that's the same officer who once gave my girlfriend's 84-year-old grandma a ticket for driving 27 mph in a 25 zone.

I like how 18 and 19 year olds are either teenagers or adults, depending on which suits the author.

Time for some union busting goons.
 
2012-04-24 03:36:01 PM
The items included several pairs of handcuffs, a bulletproof vest, a handheld radio, a Taser, two loaded ammunition clips for a handgun and a knife,

Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

I know a therapist, a PHD no less, who provides counselling for my former company - nice lady. According to her she used to provide the same services for a local, not to be named PD here in The OC. She said she's never met a more miserable community, of thieves, degenerates, users, and "...just the most awful people; you wouldn't believe the things they do to people and even eachother.". She was almost in tears even mentioning it.


All the more reason to stay away from crime, criminals, cops and the long arm of the law.

Sure I've had run ins with good folks who wear the badge, but such a high percentage are warts on the arse of society, it's obviously better to keep your distance.

Happened to me once. I don't know which is more mythical, 2 greens or BIE

There is an unbelievably long list of things that will NOT get you fired from a police department, subby. As a result I am unsurprised by this particular thingy.

What would surprise me would be a list of things that WILL get you fired from a police department. I'm starting to think it's not even possible unless external influence is successfully applied.

I suspect that for certain submitters 2 simultaneous greens would not be uncommon.

Nah, that's the Moorhead Police Department. They're too busy coming up with excuses not to return a waitress's $12,000 tip.

Of course, NDSU is pretty bad about that too, but what the public don't know won't reduce their athletic donations. Or get the University's funding cut again.

mrsirjojo: I like how 18 and 19 year olds are either teenagers or adults, depending on which suits the author.


Technically, they're both. Their ages end with "teen", making them teen-agers, and they're 18-or-older, so they're adults.

/But yes, I see what you're getting at
 
2012-04-24 03:51:26 PM
So he's the Police Chief now, right?
 
2012-04-24 03:52:09 PM
Aware of the theft from the Fargo police car, Moorhead police questioned three people about the handcuffs, including the man who had a set of handcuffs on his right wrist, the search warrant states.


The handcuffed man told police an acquaintance pulled the cuffs out of a backpack and placed them on him.


The acquaintance told police the handcuffs belonged to the person who was wearing them and he was unsure where they came from.


A third man, brother of the man wearing the cuffs, told police the handcuffs belonged to a friend of his brother, but he would not provide the person's name.


O Yaa.... You Betcha.

What about the guy who was walking by the three guys while they were being questioned... what did he know? Or that woman over there?

Enforcing the law does not make you above the law. Someone needs to beat this back into the police, and soon.

She was 18 at the time and they knew each other. She later started hookin. Theres a timeline to follow here

He's gonna have a lot of fun with that radio. A cop troll is the ultimate troll.

To be fair, it's not like the Fargo ND police department can fire himself, because who would he collect his final check from?

It's a profession that gives I.Q. tests and is legally allowed to discriminate against those who do well on the test.

I like how the 18 year old he was "dating" was busted for prostitution 2 years later. Sounds to me like he used the old "suck my dick or I'm busting you for hooking" routine. What a sleaze.

I played high school football against Brett Witte. Crazy. He was a pretty decent running back, actually...might defensive highlight of the game was when I took him down by his jersey (with one hand...he actually drug me about a yard before he came down).

/not even a CSB
 
2012-04-24 04:31:45 PM
Interesting side note: Witte and the Lt. Joel Vettel mentioned in the article are from the same small town 40 miles north of Fargo (Hillsboro). Maybe that's why he hasn't been fire?
