Right, but cop unions are the good type of union.

Maybe it is just a few bad apples after all. This guy certainly met his quota. Holy fark.

We had a useless assistant manager that worked for us. Always calling off, never got his people to get work done, etc. So day before he is supposed to start his vacation, he calls off sick. We thought it was gonna be a staycation. He had actually booked a week in Vegas. He was actually calling FROM the lobby in Vegas to call off. Which was his downfall as during the call, someone hit the jackpot on the slots behind him. Idiot.

Well... German Bosque - he just couldn't make up his damn mind.
 
2013-05-02 07:01:55 PM
I'm impressed he was actually fired for any of those things. Sounds like most cops' SOP.

Good help is just so hard to find now at days... what with the job market and all.

WTH? How can you get fired 8 times from 3 police departments? Why would a department re-hire someone they fired? More than once? 5 times? WTF?
I cant imagine a company that fired me (yep, it has happened) would hire me back and I'm a machinist!

Someone needs to dig a little deeper on this one, because no matter how you slice it, there is a serious problem in the system and it is clearly illustrated.

"The department told arbitrator Jeanne Wood that Sgt. German Bosque should be terminated because he had left a city-owned, 30-round assault rifle like the one used to slaughter 20 elementary school children last year in Connecticut in the hands of his then-girlfriend's father. "

Not as if the firings actually took.

You would think that, by now, even his own local police union would have taken this shiatstain out back behind the station and administered some "justice" to him for making the rest of them look like absolute jackasses for standing behind him the other 6 times he has been fired by his *current* police department (he was fired by 2 other departments *before* the Opa-Locka PD hired him).

No union gave this dirty cop his job back. It was either a civil service board or an arbitrator.

Unions are best suited to environments where they are not being courted by both liberals and conservatives.  Plus monopolies are always tricky whether or not they are capitalist or labor monopolies.

Well, the important part is that he got his paid administrative leave and his job back after. Like it really matters who gave it to him.

Probably had a deal if he agreed to "resign" they wouldn't say he was a shiatbag, but if it comes up for a trial they can't lie about it.

No the unions just gave him legal backing and promised to sue if they did can him.

Opa-Locka is down in Miami-Dade and it's a serious neighborhood. some parts of it are safe sure but you know how rappers always give props to 'what hood theys from'?

Opa-Locka is a frequently mentioned one

Why are police officers allowed to have military weapons of mass murder? There's no need for that. They should carry double barrel shotguns like Joe Biden recommends.

Maybe it is just a few bad apples after all.

The point of that old saying "one bad apple" isn't to point out the rarity of "bad apples", but to point out the importance of weeding those rotten apples from the bunch. It also helps prove that 99% of cops are evil as they don't want their fellow criminals outed.

Good cops would want these fools gone. What we see is cops lining up to support these bad apples.
 
2013-05-02 07:27:30 PM
Came into this thread expecting people to ignore that the guy has been fired eight times and make broad statements attacking cops but not the unions that allow this nonsense to go on.  Because there are no facets of modern liberal politics that are flawed.  None.  They must all be protected.

Not disappointed.

And yeah, Opa-Locka is scary as shiat.

Cletus C.: Making decisions based on the rules and guidelines set out in the union-negotiated collective bargaining agreement with a union attorney representing him at each hearing.


So what are you saying? Cops shouldn't be able to negotiate working conditions and wages? They shouldn't be allowed to be represented by counsel at employment and disciplinary hearings?

I don't like it any more then anyone else when some jerk that shouldn't be a cop gets his job back, but to blame a union for that is wrong. If  a hearing officer, civil service board or arbitrator gives a bad cop his job back it's almost always the fault of the employer for making a bad disciplinary decision OR failing to follow the proper procedures to terminate the person. It's not the union's fault for defending the contract or the procedures.

FTFA:  Arbitrator Jeanne Wood was expected to make a decision about Bosque's job within 60 to 90 days.

Let me translate this for my fellow citizens:  Arbitrator Jeanne Wood was expected to give Bosque 60 to 90 days to make her palm start growing $100 bills.

What a load of bullshiat.

Representation at disciplinary hearings? Why is there even a freaking hearing? We did an investigation. You did/didn't do this. This is your punishment. That is the real world. Employment hearing. Good grief.

No but it is the Unions fault for making the contract and procedures so burdensome that asshats like this can do things that would make an average joe a felon.  It is his fellow officers fault for not arresting him for these things.

So who gets to do the investigation and make the disciplinary decisions? The employer? Should the employee have no recourse if the decision is wrong or politically motivated?
