Did you just step off the short bus?Evidently all of you judgemental **** have never had a dumb-**** attack in your-life? Never made a really bad decision? Get off your high horses& soap-boxes. This man is human he made a enormous error in judgement and thank God or whoever he did not harm anyone or himself. This is also a man who has given-dedicated the better part of is life to serving you the public. Everyone wants to hang-em' high ,dare to use the Nazi term!
Why? Because you got caught drinking&driving,
speeding,breaking the law? Officers of the Law,our Troops,Dr.'s etc. are always judged more harshly than others,Why? Because we think they should know better or be better than the average person? The only difference is their job. A job that is many times thankless,dangerous,stressful and ridiculed.
I agree Mr. Mills should be judged,BUT BY A JUDGE.
if this were your flesh and blood,or someone you cared about would you want them to lose their job,pension, insurance? What about the 26yrs. of serving and protecting? For God sake, give the man a chance,counseling!
For all of you using terms like PIG,Nazi,pack your bags and get the hell out of this country!
For the rest of you try taking a good look a yourself,your past. I find it hard to believe there are so many picture-perfect law abiding(24-7)year around people in this world.
All cops are taught at the academy that once you take the job you are living life in the fish bowl. Anything you do, on or off duty, can be used against you later. Any derogatory information in the officers past can be used by the accused to show that the officer's creditiblity is questionable.
I for one have no problem with him loosing his job or holding him to a hirer standard. Why? Because of his job? Yes. I am held to a hire standard because of my profession, so should hothers. We hire people to be officers, troopers, detectives etc. because they have proven then are honest, trustworthy, and have consistantly made good descicions. Clearly, his trust-worthiness, and judgement has been called into question. Whats next, he gets drunk and fires a few rounds off?
He was given a second chance after getting caught driving at 100 MPH. He didn't learn his lesson then, do we think he is going to learn his lesson now?
I bet anyone he arrested for DUI and has charges pending against them for a DUI just won their criminal case. Probably, all charges dismissed. Why, because of this guys actions.
Furthermore, he helped to continue to make people dislike the OSP. Because of his actions peple think even less of OSP Troopers. He is tarnishing a repreputation the OSP has to fight hard to keep.
