    Means nothing there hasn't been time for the law suit brought by the Union that will end up not only with him getting his job back but all back pay and a promotion to Lt.s in charge of the ethics unit.

    Not good enough! What does it take for the District Attorney to file charges and prosecute in these cases??

    Actually his dismissal is only a cover for him. He will be hired to do undercover work for the department.
    Of course, he will be given remedial firearms and tactical training so that he doesn't shoot any bad guys . . .

    I totally expect that happening. :rollingeyes: I hope not but believe it will or he'll just be hired by another police department in another state.

    I would expect criminal charges forthcoming for this guy. You all know I a strong advocate for LEO's, but this guy went beyond the pale and should get prison time for attempted murder. Thank goodness for dash cams, at least in this case.

    Take note of the second trooper to his immediate right drawing his weapon as well.

    Shot at a minivan full of kids? He shouldn't be fired...he should be hanged by the neck until dead.

    I'd say he just passed his interview for LA, New York, or Chicago. Too bad he wasn't in Arizona so he could have been sent to do time at Sheriff Joe's.

    Gov needs those willing to do such things.

    He will be quietly rehired elsewhere and move up the ranks faster than any of his peers.

    It wasn't really necessary for him to bring the whole family McDonald's food for attempting to execute them, but the thought was nice.
