(Some Guy)   Joey Porter's previous run-ins with the law include an incident where he shot and pistol-whipped someone and another where he encouraged his wife to make false sexual abuse claims. No, wait. That was the arresting officer   ( pghcitypaper.com) divider line

That might just be the dumbest article ever written.

The officer should have been fired a long time ago, but Porter is also an idiot who is in trouble a lot.

I never under stand how a cop who was caught lying like this guy is allowed to keep their job. How can he testify about an arrest? Unless there is video of every second of the arrest, including slightly before the arrest, a defense attorney could easily attack his credibility, and force him to admit that he already has been known to lie in the line of duty and make false accusations against people.

I saw in another article that this cop is 5 6 and 145 pounds. Napoleon complex much?

Unions.

Unions do some incredible work as far as contract negotiations and the like.  They're also invaluable when a good officer is being wrongly hung out to dry by a Chief, or worse, an officer is having his career railroaded by a Chief who has a vendetta (happens a lot).  They're also terrible when it comes to getting rid of bad cops.  There's a strange desire by unions to protect bad cops because, they say, they have to protect even bad cops.  So you wind up with union lawyers going against city lawyers, and the union lawyers are usually better; a lot better.  I hate it.  I've told pretty much every rookie I've ever come across that they need to realize very early in their career that their word must be unimpeachable.  That even a small lie to cover a relatively innocuous incident not even relating to a crimnal case can taint them for their entire careers.  I also tell them that nobody's badge should ever be more important than their own; and that if they lie to cover for somebody else, they're going to get fired.

As for the dishonesty, research "Brady Evidence." Basically it prevents Prosecutor's from hiding exculpatory evidence from defense attorney's, requires that they inform the court about leniency agreements by witnesses, etc.  But it also requires that the Prosecutor inform the defendant and defense attorney's if a witness officer has a sustained history of lying in his/her official capacity.  Our Prosecutor's office won't touch a "Brady Officer."  Won't file charges where they're the only officer who sees or has the evidence which gave probable cause for the arrest.  Luckily my department is extremely proactive about getting rid of officers who lie; the most recent was an officer who lied to his supervisor regarding an on-duty crash that caused less than $1,000 worth of damage to his police car.  They fired him after reviewing security footage and confronting him with his lie.  I love that about my department.

The city we share a border with has an officer who has a few things in his past that rise to the level of Brady disclosure.  His entire job is to sit in the lobby of the police department and release vehicles from the tow lot, take reports from people who walk on station, handle transporting paperwork from the department to the various other city departments and the courthouse, do motor vehicle inspections, etc.  He looks miserable everytime I see him, and I love it.  He deserved to be fired; but his union attorney got him off on a technicality.  So now he's stuck doing menial office work until he inevitably screws up again and gets fired.

The author is going to be having himself a little "accident" soon, I'm sure.

Cop sounds like an asshole who should be nowhere near a gun and a badge.

Joey Porter still is and always has been an asshole

Wait. This cop drunkenly pistol-whipped and shot a guy whom he mistook for someone who had talked shiat to him earlier in the night, claimed he was doing so in an official capacity as a police officer (WHILE DRUNK AND OFF DUTY), and he got to keep his job?

I know, I know. I shouldn't be surprised, and I'm not, really.
