"The behavior of which [Clarke] is accused, and the poor judgement which he has allegedly shown, is not consistent with the high standards to which we hold all city employees."

Poor judgement?

They knew about the prison killing before hiring him, right?
 
2018-10-06 06:16:14 PM  
Cops can kill you and get away with it.

Is there a department policy against having sex on the job? I'm only asking because my home city police department has this issue come up and, well, turns out that they found out there was no policy prohibiting that and they had to make one to prevent future incidents.

Those were just, like, allegations, man.

I've always found it interesting that you can have one guy that has his life ruined for doing something like farting in church, then you have guys like this that can't get into trouble, even if they cook a mentally ill person to death.

toraque: CruiserTwelve: They can't fire him. He helps fill a quota.

You cops have a 'boil people alive' quota?


Ostensibly the quota is 0, same as the quota of people to be killed or maimed, but some people like to go over quota because they're overachievers.

Sounds like he's well qualified to be on the FBI in charge of investigating SCOTUS nominees.

How. The fark. Was he not charged for LITERALLY BOILING A MAN TO DEATH? That must have been horrific for the poor inmate. Can you even imagine? He must have screamed and screamed. The article said huge portions of his skin had peeled off.

They're not allowed to have a traffic ticket quota, but they need to put something on their schedules

They don't have ticket quotas, but if they fail to meet their non-existent ticket quotas, they get reprimanded for failing to meet expected enforcement level standards.

SCUM. Hard to believe there are people out there who are worse than trump.

F*ck this piece of schitt. And f*ck the people who did not prosecute him for murdering a prisoner.
 
2018-10-06 07:48:36 PM  
Fark me, I remember when that shower death story broke.  Dude was boiled alive while hand-cuffed to the shower stall.  It took hours for him to die, wailing the whole time according to the other inmates.

"repeated investigations into allegations he was sleeping with women while on duty. "

It's ok guys, I don't think he was actually sleeping. I mean, if he had a call it would only take him an extra three or four minutes to wipe off his d!ck, get dressed, then kill another self-medicating mentally ill person.
 
2018-10-06 08:02:24 PM  
just a cop doing cop shiat.

Lee in Texas: Jesus. farking. Christ.


As a former Texas resident and a current Florida resident I feel confident saying. neither of us has any room to be shocked by these revelations.  Had he been naked, wearing a cowboy hat, driving a segway while tripping on bath salts, and eating babies.  Then TX and FL residents can be shocked, but this singular case checks too few boxes for the level of punctuation you used.

Shooting unarmed black people in the back is cop shiat. Boiling people alive is some medieval shiat.

more steamed than boiled....and that just makes me hot...
 
2018-10-06 08:41:17 PM  
This asshat is everything that's wrong with ;law enforcement in this country.    I really feel for the good cops who while doing there jobs properly and making no headlines have to deal with the fallout from the shiat pieces of puke in their profession  like this waste of flesh.
 
2018-10-06 08:43:09 PM  
It won't be the end of his career, he'll simply have to move to a smaller city that is just as desperate for police officers. They will overlook his past accusations when he promises it won't happen again. When he farks that job up, he can simply move to a smaller more obscure town and start all over again.

yep it's me: How. The fark. Was he not charged for LITERALLY BOILING A MAN TO DEATH? That must have been horrific for the poor inmate. Can you even imagine? He must have screamed and screamed. The article said huge portions of his skin had peeled off.


So he literally went medieval on his ass. (It's an appropriate death for poisoning. And treasonous women.)

In 1594 the Japanese authorities arrested the notorious bandit Ishikawa Goemon. His crimes were notorious enough that he's since become a legendary thief. They make children's kites in his shape in memory of a story where he stole a golden statue off of the roof of a temple and escaped by flying up there on a big kite. He was also rumored to have done all kinds of things and tried to assassinate various leaders of the time to get on their shiat list.

Whatever the truth is, his reputation was such that authorities wanted to make an example of him, so they boiled him and his son alive in oil. Here he is pictured holding his son out of the oil.

There's various accounts. In some stories the boy survives and is pardoned, in others Goemon realizes its hopeless and thrusts the boy into the oil very deeply so his death will be swift, and in others his whole family is roasted in the pot. But one thing they ALL agree on is that Goemon is boiled alive in an iron tub full of hot oil. To this day, fire heated hot tubs are called Goemon-buro, or Goemon baths in Japanese.

Boiling a man alive can easily be considered an accident in some kind of early industrial era steam powered factory designed before Osha regulations by scientists who still bought into phrenology. Chaining a man in a shower and slow cooking him to death in the modern era? This guy shouldn't have been fired, he should have been charged with Murder 1.

The problem with that is after stir-frying one perp, you want to do it again just an hour later.

* Executed prisoner care cost reductions of more than $100,000 over two years
* Finalized solution to provide unprecedented prisoner hygiene

Anyway, like I was sayin', inmate is the fruit of the prison. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, inmate-kabobs, inmate creole, inmate gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple inmate, lemon inmate, coconut inmate, pepper inmate, inmate soup, inmate stew, inmate salad, inmate and potatoes, inmate burger, inmate sandwich. That- that's about it.

Like hiring people who boil others to death?
