FTA: Jimenez told the  Post-Dispatch Albers had three prior disciplinary incidents, including one last year in which he "used a wrong choice of words with a resident."


Hotheaded people should not have stressful jobs with guns.

Good.

Cool, so now he's angry AND bitter.
 
2014-08-29 01:59:05 PM  
Oh goody. They let him resign. He'll be "working" for another police department within 2 weeks.
 
2014-08-29 02:04:37 PM  
With a name like "Officer Go Fark Yourself", what exactly did you expect him to say?

Are you saying he's going to cling to his guns and religion?

Because he was allowed to resign instead of being fired, he can collect his $80K a year pension.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.  Yes, he's an asshat that deserved to be fired, but to ruin his long-term retirement after serving for 20 years doesn't seem right either.  By today's rules, there is no "career-end long-term performance evaluation to determine your pension, or if you even get one."

That's my feeling about it, as well. He deserved to lose his job, but not to have his entire life ruined.

I expect he will now be a FoxNews commentator.

If it weren't for the other three prior disciplinary actions against him I wouldn't even necessarily say he should have lost his job over it, certainly he should have faced some type of discipline, but maybe not a firing.  Still, with it being the third time he's had to have his behavior addressed I suppose the firing is justified.

I do agree that losing his pension would be uncalled for.  If he wants to work for another department and they want to hire him he should be able to do that as well.  Sometimes you just need that 'come to Jesus' moment to realize that you need to change how you do things, so hopefully that works for him and he can adopt a new outlook on life from it.

Yeah, and it sounds like his previous issues were more of the same - a dude who lashes out at people when he's under stress. Being a cop and keeping your cool ain't easy, but that's the job he signed up for.
 
2014-08-29 04:12:39 PM

Cops ruin entire lives pretty much every day, and frequently the owners of those lives did nothing wrong.
Good for the goose, etc....

HEY! "Officer Go Fark Yourself"
I wanted FRIES with that!

I expect he will be hearing this in coming months.


Or the TSA will hire him.
they don't screen for shait.

You kidding me? They've screened me for water bottles, chapstick, BIC lighters, lotion, sunblock, nail clippers, Velveeta, perfume, etc., etc.

Because only terrorists have those things in their carry on.

Nobody should get a hefty pension for 20 years work. Police officers don't even have a top 5 dangerous job.
 
2014-08-29 04:38:35 PM  
Maybe they need to change the name to Farkuson.
 
2014-08-29 04:39:08 PM  
So, it's nice he isn't working for that department, but what he did sure sounds like a criminal act. He should be looking for a lawyer for his impending date with the court while out on bond.
 
2014-08-29 04:40:18 PM

We get it. You think bashing Fox in threads completely unrelated to Fox makes you sound intelligent. It doesn't.

Why not?  Hell, firing is inadequate, eve.  He should be brought up on assault charges.

farking this and THIS. I swear to god I want to farking strangle people when they say "you don't know how much stress it is to be a cop...blah blah blah." Im like fark no, I don't know. If I did, I'd...you know...BE A farkING COP. That's like working in a water treatment plant and biatching because it smells like shiat.

What he did looks exactly like felony aggravated assault (IIRC).  That's what it would be if you or I did it.

Sounds like the guy giving the talk isn't happy about having to do it and all police will now be even harder on "citizen journalists", and anyone with a phone.

I dunno man.  Threatening to kill bystanders while pointing a gun at them is right up there near the top of my list of reasons why a cop shouldn't be able to collect a pension after departure from the force.

Probably menacing, maybe assault with a deadly weapon, possibly any firearm specific crimes relevant to that jurisdiction as well.

Oh, and since he threatened to kill them, making terroristic threats.  Really, if a prosecutor wanted to go balls-deep on someone for what Officer GofarkYourself did, there are tons of options.

FTA:  Police chief Aaron Jiminez said he is "not condoning his behavior whatsoever," but called Albers' raising his enormous gun "totally justifiable."

Nicely done chief!
 
2014-08-29 04:55:48 PM  
Prior to the camera turning on, Albers had had water and urine thrown at him, Jiminez said. He then saw three men with bandanas in the crowd

That's a typo. It was three men with bananas.

He can fill in for Dick Cheney as a people greeter at Wal-Mart

You could see in that video that he was absolutely scared shiatless.  If he's that scared to be out there doing the job, he's in the wrong line of work.
 
2014-08-29 05:00:52 PM  
He'll probably collect his pension then become Chief of Police or Sheriff in Bumf*ckistan, Idaho, Wyoming or Utah.  Someplace where the brown people are all 'passing through'.

Losing your cool in a tense and chaotic situation shouldn't ruin you.

He didn't shoot anyone, he didn't hit anyone, he just screamed and pointed his rifle.  He shouldn't have done that, but it's not like his actions led to any harm beyond a few minutes to a couple hours of possible disconcertment for those he screamed and pointed the gun at.

Pointing a gun at someone and saying, "I'll farking kill you" is a crime.

Ever listened to a police scanner? As a robbery/assault victim and delivery driver, I do, often.

It's often a cop that shows up first to a stabbing victim, etc.

So yeah, they do save lives.
