I think that this is a joke. To fire a very good officer for using his computer for online dating! 5 Seattle cops went to sturgis and got into with some hells angels, fighting and even a gun involved and they are just "under investigation" I know stories about other Anacortes Police officers that are much worse and they weren't but should be fired. And has any body seen the Anacortes officer that is so grossly over weight that he can barely get in and out of his car? Who is he going to protect and serve? Isn't that agaisnt dept. policy?

I dont think It should be a crime to use a computer to chat whether is be dating or anything as long as he didn't do it while actually on shift when he should be protecting and serving. But on the comment about the over weight cop...that was bad!!!! There are a lot of over weight people in this world and they get discriminated about all the time! I know of that officer and he has no problem doing his job as well as the officer that got fired. He is and was a great cop! And a great person. He did his job for many years as well as the over weight cop! So please don't knock people, especially those out there protecting society!

He was hardly a good cop. He behaved inappropriately towards me. I say good riddance!
