This is ridiculous. I'm sure he didn't mean to hit the other car, and now he's had to suffer through all this embarrassment. Just put him back on active duty and give him a raise for the emotional stress he's endured.

So I guess the alternative takeaway is that Disney doesn't have an issue with drunk employees. Cool! Time to get liquored up and act Goofy.

Cops are human too. Even though they have special privileges they should never be held to a higher standard because they risk their lives every day protecting you from drunk drivers.

flynn80: HelloNeuman: Jobs in law enforcement can be VERY high stress and often lead to difficulties in both personal and professional life. Let's  try to understand what issues might have lead to this unfortunate circumstance and begin to consider the BEST way to allow him to heal.
Forgive, treat the problem, and the result is an improved officer with the personal skills needed to meet the difficult tasks of day to day law enforcement.

You can't expect the men (and some women) that do these jobs to be treated the same as a 'normal' man on the street with a non-stressful job. They deserve some leeway and a bit of drinking while driving should be tolerated unless it becomes cronic.

Wow you are so full of fail, Cop taint must taste chocolate icecream to you.  Most cops are cowards who go after soft targets.  They fear real criminals and do not take them on for fear of themselves and their families being targeted in retaliation.  They spend more time writing Legal Extortion Fees then investigating actual crimes against persons.


So a little drinking and a minor accident and you think he should get the death penalty? I don't suppose that you've ever done anything you shouldn't have? Remember, these brave men and women are the only thing between you and anarchy! Just give them a donut now and then and a bit of special treatment when driving drunk.

When the troopers went to place the deputy under arrest, the deputy should have arrested the troopers for interfering with a LEO in the commission of a crime.

Kind of like it-tag for cops.

If this isn't a high-level troll, then I'd like to buy you a beer. I seem to be pretty alone in my sympathy for this fellow and you expressed my sentiments very well.

CSB:
I rear ended someone once.  Very low speed collision (variety of excuses; breaks on my company Ranger needed to be fixed, wet conditions, there was a shiny object next to the road that was pretty to look at, there was a blinking light down the road that was hypnotizing, etc), barely any visual damage.

Unfortunately, the collision happened right on a bridge.  And the police (all six cars from different agencies) were having a long argument who had to do the paperwork; this bridge was apparently a legal black hole because all their jurisdictions ended on the ends of the bridge.

Then another officer arrived, hitting one of the parked patrol cars head on.

ransack.: GanjSmokr: ransack.: thurstonxhowell: ransack.: I feel bad for this guy. This will ruin his career and his life. If I got a DUI, it would cost me some money and I'd lose my license for 30 days maybe and have to go to six AA meetings or something. This guy will lose his career, his pension, and his moonlighting gig. Everyone deserves one second chance.

If I was in uniform, at work, driving a company car, I think hitting someone and getting a DUI might leave a bit of black mark on my resume.

He was off-duty at the time

------------------------------------

Meyer was wearing his uniform and driving his sheriff office vehicle to an off-duty job at Walt Disney World when the crash happened.

As long as you're "off-duty" it's fine to be drunk, in uniform, and driving your squad car then?

It's not okay, but it isn't any worse than an everyday drunk mail carrier.


This would explain why 2 or 3 of my Penthouses go missing during the year.

Had one friend who was a deputy sheriff.  He went to a cookout at the Sheriff's house, and drank a buncha beer.  On his way home another car clipped his, and he was found to have beer on his breath and was booked for DUI.

It did NOT go well for him.  No slap on the wrist, no administrative leave.  He was fired.  Then the local chapter of MADD got him in their gunsights.  They made his life a living hell for several years.

/not much of a CSB, but damned true
