This actaully warms my soul in some ways.
Usually you just hear stories of the brotherhood defending eachother and not punishing eachother for the same crimes that the public commits. We'll typically get some apologists try and show us examples of cops being nice but it doesn't cut it when those "nice cops" turn a blind eye to their fellow officers when their behaviour goes against the law.
However, this guy should have received the exact same punishment as any citizen, though, and the police forces consistency to give officers paid vacations for committing crimes is paramount ridiculousness.
In my opinion, these kinds of cases need to go directly to trial before a jury so that the citizens have control over these situations.edit on 6-3-2014 by TheRegal because: (no reason given)
Sorry. I misread your post. You were not saying it was an oops moment, but rather the result of bad choice, though I still read your interpretation as a one-off choice, when I see it as a sign of a possible deeper problem.edit on 6-3-2014 by aboutface because: (no reason given)
At some point after he refused a breathalyzer test, Coriat became sick, vomited, and fell asleep in it. The Miami-Dade Police Department would not comment but said that officer Coriat is now relieved of duty with pay
relieved of duty with pay.
Same as the rest of us, right?
