Answer me this. If most of the good guy's were trying to get rid of him this whole time how in the hell did he get promoted during this tenure. BTW.. most people cannot be suspended from their jobs fifteen times and still keep them, get promoted, back pay etc... etc...

..... Notes crookedcop12 is dodging this simple question.

Note that I answered your question.

The union protects EVERYONE. If the guy was getting his due process hearings and not getting terminated, then one can assume they were stamped "unfounded". If an accusation is considered "unfounded" or he received other disciplinary action, then those suspensions are considered CLOSED. They exist no more than when you fill out an application and check "No" next to the question of whether you've ever been terminated from another job.

Now there is another possibility, which is that his superiors were trying to promote him off the street. A bad cop working a desk job is much less trouble than a bad cop out on a beat 12 hours a day; making him a lieutenant means he's under the eye of the watch captain during his 8-hour office shift and not out where he can kill someone. This happens a lot in civil service jobs where the person can't be fired--he's moved to a position of less public contact.

And this is acceptable? Business as usual I guess.

Of course it's acceptable... You see, a cop's love is very different from that of a square; they're just better than the rest of humanity and understand that society's conventions and "laws" simply don't apply to them. What would get you fired and black-balled within a square industry is but a noisy blip on a cop's ever-righteous radar; you would be well put to understand your place and accept that police are simply superior to you and exempt from your pedestrian mores and expectations.

CruiserTwelve: namatad: Just one rotten cop making the 1% look bad.

This guy gets disciplined repeatedly and finally fired for being a jerk, and you still use it as a criticism of police in general?

This guy's a renegade. His unorthodox ways rub people the wrong way, but hell, the guy gets results. He's ruffling a lot of feathers, some say he's going to get reassigned to training the new guy, Rodriguez. Yeah, Rodriguez has a lot of heart and may get somewhere one day if he manages to not get killed, but damn it he's just a kid!
