i don't trust the police anymore, the police is there to protect the community, and they don't do whatever the have to do. look what happen here in SPFLD when the police shoot the 18 yrs old , and he is working like he is heroe, but if the 18yrs old shoot the officer, then is another story, the 18 yrs old can spend 25 yrs in prision, but was the police who did that SO IT'S OK WHATEVER THE DO. HERE IN SPFLD THE POLICE SUCKS, THEY DON'T HELP. when they are in contruction road, the last thing they do is helping the traffic, they spend the time talking in the cell phone,and i ask my self, r they working or hanguing out? i have to drive all day long and i had bad experiece with those good for nothing. I'M SORRY POLICE OF SPFLD, BUT YOU CAN DO BEETER JOB.

Chances are this cop ( if guilty ) will just get another police job in another town and do the same thing all over again. He got fired from Chicopee but did he get his police powers taken from him so he can no longer be a cop anywhere? Many times cops are let go only to go harass other people in other towns. Its the fine blue line. Servants or your supervisors ? Gods or humans ? Protect and serve or intimidate and generate revenue? Yes there are still some good cops!

welll. SPFL cops take their job too seriously cause i got a criminal complain ticket from SPFLD cause i tried to make a left turn near a const, and there was a detour if you were gonna go straight through, the cop told me it was a one way street and he called a "forkin dumbasz" and MFer and this and that bullspit and then he asks for my registration and i was like "u know what FORK YOU, get ur supervisor over here lets have a talk with him." he got pissed. the judge threw it out.

But seriously SPFLD shoots people cause they have incompitent people workin there JUST W8in to shoot some1 and they LOOK FOR ANY EXCUSE TO PULL SOME1 OVER. where as chicopee police rarely do traffic stops unless ur really REALLY bad. Chicopee cops couldn't give 2 spits unless some1 gets hurt. they server the community as they should. So what if the have a horny cop? big deal.

First off, if you think you can do a better job, why don't you take the risk of protecting others. All you ever hear are the bad things and never what these police officers do for you and the community. What would your world be like without the fine men and women of the badge. I guess you would just perfer to have people taking whatever they want by any means. Robbing, stealing, killing, I guess thats your idea of what your community should involve. Take a look at your life and see how it would change without law enforcement working in your favor. Those police officers that are working at those construction zones, they are working on their days off. They have families and I think they would prefer not to be there, but hey, many of us need to work for some extra money. Don't knock the police officers because of your personnel vendetta. Obey the law like everyone else and there would be no problems. Again, before you can curse any law enforcement officer, I suggest you get a gun and stand a post and put your life on the line for someone else.

One more thing, if you don't know the story behind any of this, I suggest you get your facts straight and not just listen to things you have heard. You have the freedom of speech, to say what you want, but take a look at those people who are protecting your right for that freedom everyday in the very neighborhoods, towns, city and states you live in. None of them every ask for a thank you or good job, they do what they have to when an unfore seen circumstance is presented. Police officers are always under view from the public's eye and all it takes is one person to make an accusations, and crap like this happens. I salute each and every one of the officers working in Chicopee or any other city in the United States, and I say thank you for protecting us from the very people who have no respect for other people.

Bear one thing in mind, Cops protect themselves and other Cops before you. Ever notice the "To Protect and Serve" logos have dissappeared. We have good cops and we have bad cops.. Lets hope we have more good ones. I firmly believe in our Constitution...

I believe everyone makes mistakes in life. This officer was in my opinion in a he said she said situation. I believe this "woman" LIAR most likely put a little extra crap into the story. In mostly any case nowadays, the man is at fault. People want to believe the woman's word over the man's.
Being a police officer for 5 years with the City of Chicopee is a tough job and I don't believe he would jeopardize his job or his families name for "some girl".
Everyone deserves a second chance. In this case I believe he could have been the victim as well. With no proof, why point the finger????
