So... TFA was pretty boring, not like the "top-cop" did any super ninja moves or anything. He just followed procedure and arrested the moron.

So, meh.

Why would you pull a knife on someone within walking distance of the courthouse?

Pfft, a spoon. Be a real tough guy, use a SPORK!

Isn't part of being a mugger you pick someone that looks weak, unsure, not really self-aware.

I don't think a burly bald guy (who happens to be a cop) is an easy mark.

\Unless he wants to go back inside?

FTFA: State records indicate he has been in and out of prison since February 2003 for various offenses including burglary, grand theft and petit theft.

Criminal must be from France. Where else would he get that ridiculous accent?
Now go away or he shall taunt you a second time.

He flicked the towel off, displayed a folding knife with a 4- to 5-inch blade, and asked Liberatore what was up, according to Ocala police.

I am having a hard time imagining this scenario realistically.

Ok, so the suspect was on the committee that names the LEO of the year?

Florida LEO of the year is akin to the least stinky turd in the punch bowl.

This really doesn't add up. Either the guy was mentally ill or someone needs to hold the Master Deputy by his feet and shake him to see how many plants fall off him.

2013-08-19 08:42:51 PM
Weapons are like a canary in the mine for the normal folks, if you pull a weapon then there's something wrong with you and you should be eliminated from the group experience.
But how do we know that the Officer of the Year hadn't just done something crazy to deserve perforations? Like how about he just kept licking this guy's car or something?

Actually, he pulled his concealed firearm, identified himself (in whatever order that happened, doesn't really matter because dumbass) and had another occifer do the arresting.

/ That's a whole lot of Florida

Agreed, he could shot at him 50 times missing every shot, have tasered the mugger 20 times, then pull a monkey grabs the peach for kicks.

\Maybe that is why he won an award?

In all probability, he said"waasup?" sarcastically, while inferring what was up was a robbery.

Probably a good idea to not pull a knife on *anyone* in the gunshine state.

Question: How come they let a guy with an extensive rap sheet and has been in and out of prison walk around and continue to do crap like this? The people that can obviously not be rehabilitated who are repeat offenders should have to work their entire lives paying for not only their incarceration but others' as well. Be it in a blue collar or white collar role, but they should not be released - ever.
 
2013-08-19 09:05:56 PM
10 years with the Sheriff's Office and he's only a corporal?  Is that standard for 10 years of service?

I think that a rank of 'corporal' after 10 years is a pretty low rank to have gotten to - mind you, he might have been happy just to plod along, doing his job, never applying for higher-ranks (I guess).

I'm not. I've had numerous panhandlers try to get my attention from afar with "what's up?" Usually followed by "Hey man, let me axe you something" if I stop and turn.

My snarky response would be "you want him to be a major general?"
But, in the spirit of glasnost, I'm going to venture the theory that he only advanced that far because he's an honest cop.

To answer your question seriously: He may not want to leave the beat. Applying for the "higher ranks" as you say often means getting slotted behind a desk, and he may prefer working the streets. He may be an FTO (field training officer--very likely with that kind of award) and enjoy working with younger officers, something he couldn't do if he was stuck behind a desk. Or getting promoted may entail a lot of other duties he doesn't want to take on.

Or, like MorteDiem said, he could be a good cop and ace his written exams and get shot down when it comes to the interviews. Or, like my best friend who's been a CO his entire 20-year career with the Nevada Dept. of Corrections, with an unblemished record and top ten scores in the state--he likes pissing off his supervisors and they just won't promote him when the time comes, because he's so irritating.

Some guys spend their entire career as lowly patrol officers. Ambitious people rarely understand why. I used to be ambitious, but decades of work knocked that right out of me. I'd explain more, but I'm working straight through the end of the month exempt salary, to maybe get a few days off the first week of next month. Of course, I'll show passion, drive, and run my business with a plan the entire time. I will set priorities using ABC123 and delegate tasks after coaching my team to productivity.  Right now, I'm tired and wish I had a job where they don't need my home number and I can be truly off when the clock strikes 4.

Understanding why people can be happy being one step above entry level is a path to understanding the meaning of life. There's no way to disrespect his choice. He's made it; he's there.
