What a tool. Yes, he was fired, but all that time and taxpayer money spent searching for false leads is going to be paid back by whom? The taxes in Massachusetts are high as it is, the citizenry does NOT need to waste more of it on tool-bag's like this guy. I can only hope that he never finds work in an law enforcement department, ever.

WCVB: Officer made up story about shooting before crashing cruiser


“We have determined that the officer’s story was fabricated. Specifically, that he fired shots at his own cruiser as a plan to concoct a story that he was fired upon,” Millis Police Sgt. William Dwyer said. “The evidence indicates the shots were not fired by a suspect, and there is no gunman at large in or around the town.”



What say you ATS!

They should do undercover questionnaires and automatically eliminate anyone who is a fan of "fast and furious" from becoming a police officer.

I almost got hit by one swerving in and out of traffic the other day. No lights on.

Reckless.

Yes, it is a good thing that all that was wasted was money, and not someone's life! A life taken either by a bullet,an accident during the search, or by a judge.

Tool bag....I...just....I..tool bag!

Are more police getting killed? A look at officer deaths
By MICHAEL TARM

CHICAGO (AP) — The killing of a veteran police officer north of Chicago is the latest in a string of recent law enforcement deaths. Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz' death on Tuesday triggered a manhunt for three suspects around the small Illinois community where the 52-year-old officer worked. A look at some of the latest slayings and data on other officer killings:

___

HOW MANY OFFICERS HAVE DIED?

Gliniewicz was the eighth law enforcement officer shot and killed in the U.S. in the last month and the fourth in 10 days, according to the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which tracks officers' deaths so their names can be enshrined on a Washington, D.C., memorial. Steve Groeninger, a spokesman for the group, said four fatal shootings in recent days is a higher rate than usual.

___

IS THAT AN INCREASE?

No. Shooting deaths of officers are actually down 13 percent compared with the same January-to-September period in 2014. There were 30 shootings last year and 26 this year. Those figures include state and local officers, as well as federal agents. The figures also include two accidental shootings, Groeninger said. Suicides are not included.

Deaths have declined through the decades. The average number of officer shooting deaths for the first six months of each year — which is how the memorial fund gauges trends — was 62 through the 1970s.

The worst half-year period over the past five decades was in 1973, when 84 officers were shot and killed in the first six months alone. Through the early 2000s, the six-month average fell to 29.



Police getting popped while pumping gas or just sitting in their cruiser is horrible and there is very little one can do to defend against those actions.. Plus police are reps of the government so besides the loss of life it has to be a big deal and a show of support anytime one is killed.

I did a thread a couple of years ago that said their job was statistically about as dangerous (per 100,000) as gardeners..

Regardless, I would not want to be a police officer simple because if I were unlucky to get into a bad department full of corruption and bully boys I would end up being shot or beat by one of my own department guys.. Frank Serpico, anyone ?

Dwyer said the officer is new to the force and has not yet attended the police academy.


WTH?

Is it common to let untrained individuals have a badge and a gun?

If so that's unsettling.

And a cruiser....

Wonder if he called in the bomb threat that was reported as well...

I had seen this story earlier today. I believe that he should be punished as a citizen would be punished. Give him the same taste of justice one would face for crashing, shooting, and burning a police cruiser.

Let him pay it off in jail as would any other peon.

People were ordered to "shelter in place" over this douche-nozzle. A considerable number of peoples lives were intruded upon unjustly in pursuit of a phantom. I don't think that a simple "termination of employment" is nearly enough to compensate the citizenry.

They go through the Res erve/Intermittent Police Academy.

By the way, I think they were indeed searching for a red or maroon pickup truck that was seen circling the high school.

He wasn't jailed? Unlawful discharge of a firearm, wrecklessly endangering a person, conspiring to pervert the course of justice, defrauding US government, filing falsified police reports.
