This is the standard "I know more than you so you don't matter as much" response. Someone thinks their opinion is grander becasue they are "informed. It is also a variation of "you bash cops so what you say is irrelavant" story.
From the comments:
"I'm finding this post particularly interesting. You see, I happen to be privy (much moreso than I can guarantee you are) on what has and has not happened with this incident. I agree with this particular story and also am in agreement with the fact that in this specific incident, this individual has conducted himself in many ways which would have gotten most officers fired at other agencies. However, I am also turmoiled in agreeing with anything you really have to say about most things because once again, having much more information about most of the subjects you post about clearly indicates that you are mostly just another uneducated individual who loves to "think" he has the whole story about these issues. I notice you love to use the typical buzz words like "cover up", "corrupt", "honorable", etc. Clearly you are speaking as though police officers are not people. That they don't have personal lives off duty. Guess what?? Some of them drink alcohol! Some of them watch adult movies! I bet some of them have maybe even been to adult entertainment clubs before!!!! Eeeeeeek! Hold the phone everyone! We can't have morally degraded people like that protecting us!!! I find it so ironic that those who are not in the profession are so quick to judge those that are. Oh.. and for things that they did in their own private lives. Clearly in the case with Officer Hawley, this did not occur with another consenting adult. But luckily in most cases, it is. It is only the vindictive people like you that feel the need to crucify law enforcement professionals because apparently you didn't have a good interaction with one or more. If you had the slightest clue about really what goes on within the ranks, or if you simply didn't have waaaaay too much time on your hands, you likely wouldn't write most of the highly inaccurate information on here and would find a more productive hobby. But then again, who would keep the poor public abreast of all the horrible corruption surrounding them???? "
Where to begin. First, had you followed this blog you would know that I spent two years as a reserve police officer. I know well what goes on in a police department and the politics inside. I developed a bad taste in my mouth and did not further my law enforcement career.
So, you have more information than I do? Really? That must make you a cop somewhere. Are you really going to sit and defend the officer's that end up with stories written about them on this page? You have to mess up pretty bad to end up on my radar.
You attempt to belittle and discount the information I present here. Instead of stating that I am uneducated and don't know anything why not provide some information that corrects my alleged inaccuracies?
I know well that cops are people but you know what? They are cops and they took an oath and signed a code of ethics that bound them to living life a little cleaner than everyone else. That is why they get paid the big bucks. I would hope that you would agree that there is a fine line between having a beer once in a while and taking pictures of your erect penis and sending them to a barely legal female.
My information will pass any test of scrutiny. Jim Crain found that out and it ended up costing him $20,000 in legal fees.
I expect that the police will conduct themselves in a manner that brings credit to them. If that is being vindictive, if that is what you want to call it then so be it. You chastise me for using words like cover up and corrupt. What would you call it when, instead of holding an officer accountable for his actions, the officer is allowed to go on and repeat the same behavior over and over again. Certainly he is not being held accountable for his actions. What lessons does he learn from this? That the next time he makes an iffy arrest it os okay to lie on a police report because he has not been held accountable for anything to date? It is a slippery slope.
It is my mission to expose corrupt cops. That is what this blog has become. I have earned every right to tell stories of cops who do bad things. And, surprise! There are tons of others out there doing the same exact thing. If the system worked and police administration were doing their jobs, we would have nothing to write about.
