If it’s so minor that he tipped off the criminal about the ongoing investigation, one should wonder should the activities in question be illegal? Maybe it’s just to create a protective racket where those who work for the state are the only one’s allowed to benefit. Not to mention the fact the officer in question was using steroids himself.

Because illegal drugs are only a problem because we make them one.
Yeah don’t play either of these while sitting at your desk at work. I have seen it before but it’s kind of a funny story how it got stuck in my ear tonight. I try to keep this PG but I’ve been laughing too hard and was reminded of the second video and god it’s so funny! (Neither are graphic, just the content I wouldn’t consider work appropriate.)
My immediate thought was that was a whole lot of porn and bitching across the internet. I then someone asked me why I said wow. To which I informed them of the 1.1 exabyte estimate and immediately followed it with the quote above… It seems the prudent comment to make.
If you don’t understand why I would think that would be a prudent comment to make, I give you:
*It’s my blog and I can quote myself if I damn well please!]
The police chief has justified the actions of the officer. Why does this end up in the count? Because if you or I had done the same thing and someone saw us, we would be arrested at minimum for reckless discharge of a firearm within city limits. There was no immediate threat to life or even property and there were other methods to deal with the problem.
Further, you’re telling me that no one out in the middle of nowhere Ohio needs barn cats? No this man exercised poor judgment and was looking for an excuse to exercise some trigger time on a living animal. If it had been a dog the argument would be it was coming right for him.
I guess cops have decided that killing every dog they find is no longer enough, they’ve decided to move onto killing cats too.

Because reckless discharge of a firearm is only reckless if you’re not a cop and you make up a good reason, like “killing kittens that were coming right at you!”. In that case you can do whatever you want and get away with it.
Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, and three or more times is enemy action. It appears they are concerned about his mental state and if that is the case I hope he gets the help he needs. That said, if it had been you or I would they be so concerned about our mental state or just tossing us in jail?

Because when you’re a cop and you go unstable, you get a pass that no one else gets.
