The law enforcement officers will pay for this scandal over many years, regardless of the outcome. It is disturing your Sheriff has no clue as to ethical obligations regarding a leave of absence. How can he function or be trusted while this is goingt to trial.
Don't be surprised if other cops and departments have similar incidents either. Crooked cops are out there and ruined what little respect I have left for local cops.
Henry County needs a total overhaul of it's cops, to clear the air. Until that is done, it will be hell going out to to the job, and the citizens will be short-changed bt getting sub-standard service. There will be no trust, and actual ridicule, disrespect and contempt shown cops as a result as well. You can't hold that against citizens.
It is time to change the law in Virginia to allow the removal of any elected or apointed officials, for just cause.
