Thank you for coming on and clarifying. Please accept my apologies. My statements were made out of frustration that an abusive jerk is breathing the same oxygen as decent people.I am posting this comment to all that have chosen to express your opinion. It is quite distressing to me to see folks try and tear me apart for an action that I was not notified that I was required to do.
County court is by telephone call notification. My commanding officer received notification that I must appear at 600pm last evening. I was not notified of the telephone call due to my dismissal. When I did receive acknowledgement of the telephone call, it was in passing conversation while returning my issued police gear. I can offer no better explaination than that of what happened.
At no time was I "so mad at Don" that I was itching to use a tazer. You weren't there, with peoples lives on the line: inclusive of your own. Don't Monday morning quarterback.
I am devastated that I have been fired, not revengeful. In closing, had I have known, I would have been there..........
I still do care.
I seriously have to question the DA's office in not requesting a continuance until she at least found out why you were a no show. She owed the victim at least that much.
Best wishes and good luck to you.
