Just one rotten cop making the 1% look bad.

Of Rakun's 15 suspensions spanning his 19-year career, this is the second time McManus has in effect fired him; the one in 2010 was reversed.

Only 15? I'm sure he's just misunderstood

It seems the one offense that a cop will always be punished for is failure to maintain the blue wall.

After he make a false arrest?

Remember the typical of days of yore? .32 revolver, goofy hat, mustache. Now they all seem like roided MMA wannabes in battle dress uniforms. This is no accident. These are not police to protect and serve. They are the infantry of the police state. They want you scared, not asking for directions or a little help.

Ten of the disciplinary actions against Rakun stem from his personal life and often involve his relationships with women. They have included allegations of domestic violence, leaving harassing messages for his ex-wife's divorce attorney and threatening a male acquaintance.

Why single out this one guy. That sounds like every cop.

This!

15 suspensions over a 19 year career? The guy spent more time suspended than actually policing. This guy must have some good friends at city hall to get reinstated twice.

Bullying finally caught up with him? What took so long. This guy was wired wrong from birth- there will be no behavior modification short of a bullet or incarceration to keep this man from acting on his true nature. Inevitably, there's one of these characters in any given population- glad to see another one flushed out and dealt with.

I support law enforcement- a shame to have one of these in their midst so long.

Oh, oh! Cop hate thread! I have a new story, bro:

I work security on government grounds. One day, a visitor found a small box hidden in the bushes, which contained three joints. So, naturally, I called the cops and let them know I needed someone to pick up some found drugs.

A police officer arrives with the greeting "I was having a good day until you called."

Uh, okay. So I give him the box, and he starts biatching about how they don't do anything with them but destroy them and now he has all this paperwork he's going to have to do and how I could have just destroyed them myself. He repeated that last part several times.

I was polite, of course, but I couldn't help but think fark you. Even as a white-skinned person with zero criminal history, I could seriously have my life screwed up for being caught destroying drugs, especially on government grounds that commonly house children. But you don't want to do some god damned paperwork?

What an asshole.

There would be a lot of paper work for such a trite finding. Blame the system that can't come up with a one page form for recovering small amounts of found narcotics rather than a ill tempered cop that will spend the rest of his day having to come up with a report of findings and yet more follow up documents on whatever investigation your seemingly innocent act of turning the narcotics in.

But yes- there was probably no need for the cop to get snarky about that part of his job with you.

Say what you will! I'm not going to be answering for why I didn't report drugs found on the grounds of a government institution. We see this shiat on Fark every day - people whose lives get ruined over tiny possession charges.

Cops can suck it up and do their jobs, even if the paperwork is bullshiat.

I think he might have been criticizing the fact that this guy had 14 duty suspensions for violation of department policy and a previous firing already on his record.

And these?
"Ten of the disciplinary actions against Rakun stem from his personal life and often involve his relationships with women. They have included allegations of domestic violence, leaving harassing messages for his ex-wife's divorce attorney and threatening a male acquaintance."

People who aren't cops get arrested for many of those things. Domestic violence? Isn't that a free ride to jail for some chillaxing time, on the spot, no questions asked, in pretty much all 50 states now?

The guy is a bad egg. His department was also at fault for not kicking him to the ditch about a dozen write-ups ago. Honestly, he fits the profile for a Blackwater grunt.

No, someone staying on site found it and gave it to me, which quickly turns into people asking me what I did with the drugs. If I had found it myself, I'd toss it.

Fifteen farking times. Fifteen. Several of them involving criminal acts of violence which got magically expunged from his record instead of criminally prosecuted as they would have been for any civilian, and many of which are automatic "you lose your firearms" offenses for regular citizens as well. He's allowed to keep a position of public trust and one that requires him to be armed. If you can't see why that's farked fifteen ways to Sunday, you are part of the problem.

Cops who cover for their corrupt brethren are corrupt too.

In my experience, almost every cop I've known has been corrupt in one way or another, either because they selectively enforce the laws, or look the other way when other cops break the law, or alter their police reports to cover up mistakes and violations of the constitution

There's a reason prosecutors and defense attorneys refer to it as "Testi-lying" when a cop is put on the stand.

Ouch... many years ago I had just finished high school and was working graveyards at 7-11 to help pay for university. One friday night we had a huge swarm of teenagers come in all at once (in varying stages of intoxication). We finally get through the giant mob, they all leave and my coworker and I are cleaning up when three young girls come out of the bathroom asking where everyone went. They'd told their dates they were going to the bathroom and had been left stranded. We start talking to them and find out that a) they're all 13 and b) none of them are from this town.

Cellphones weren't mainstream yet and they sure as shiat didn't want their parents phoned. Not knowing what else to do I phoned the non-emergency police number. The guy whined about paperwork and they weren't a taxi service and blah blah blah. One of the girls tries to get my attention and says "Tell them we're 13 and our boyfriends are 17." All of a sudden they were very interested in picking up these girls and talking to them. :p

Yeah, Rodriguez has a lot of heart and may get somewhere one day if he manages to not get killed, but damn it he's just a kid!

You should read his story a little closer, a 'visitor' found the drugs. If I found the drugs and he just put them in his pocket and walked away, I'd be a little erked too. But then again, if I found the drugs, I know some people that par take in such activities to give to.

How do you not get this, he was not just disciplined 15 time he was farking suspended 15 times and that's with the protection of a union. What's even more terrifying is the fact that he went from patrolman to corporal to sergeant to lieutenant all while be suspended almost once a year. How you don't see this as indictment of police in general is the exact problem with your kind.

Oh and lets' not forget about the apparent beating the shiat out of woman and threatening apparently anybody he wanted to.

FTFA: "But on July 10, the beleaguered veteran received the department's harshest punishment, tantamount to being fired, for the third time."

I think we know who's beleaguered here, and it's not the officer. Appears the union is doing what it can to nurse this shiatbag along one more year to retirement where the public will then have the beleaguered privilege of paying his 90% public safety retirement with COLA's, health benefits, and lifetime carry privileges. Just goes to show how powerful their unethical union is that he has been reinstated every time...with backpay at public expense. Meanwhile, unpaid civilians are shielding their girlfriends with their bodies and paying the ultimate price in a movie theater.
