Just because he wears a badge does not entitle him to special treatment. Law enforcement officers can be bad people just like anyone else and should be treated just like anyone else. So you dated his daughter...whooptie doo. You really are foolish if you truly believe the charges should just be dropped. Perhaps you don't know him as well as you thought you did. If he was so great, he wouldn't be in trouble right now.

I agree Wrestling. I dont think he needs fired. How many domestics are out there and those men(or women )don't lose their jobs? SHit does happen with every family. Apparently he might need some anger managment classes. He was wrong for what he did and he will probably get punished worse than the average person. Where does it say police officers aren't human? They have feelings to. Everybody needs to check their own closets and worry about themselves before they should sit and judge someone else.

He may appear nice, but he has abused his authority before- asking young girls if they want to go for a "ride along" all he got was a slap on the wrist.

I have no clue what happened....I nor anyone else reading this was there...

My beef is this....what about the plumber that was arrested someplace in DSM last night for the same charge, or the teacher, or the unemployed guy struggling to make ends meet....do they make headlines and have people wanting to see a "mug shot"?????

If we are going to make a spectacle of a senior law enforcement officer for whatever transgression he/she may have done lets put ALL people on the same pedestal. You wonder why their profession has the highest suicide rate in the country, well this is a prime freekin' example. If he was not an officer, nobody would give a hoot about him, or his family.

Way to go media, another example of using predjudice just to sell some advertising. Lets keep the news in focus. If you are going to single out one individual based on his profession, then include the teacher, and the plumber, and the unemployed guy!

If I remember correctly, a charge of domestic assault means losing the privilege of owning firearms. If convicted, he will join the ranks of the unemployed. However, when it's a man in blue that is a very big IF.

we all need to wait to judge before we know all the facts. In the occupation that he is in you live in a fishbowl. Any mistake made will be shown to the world. What needs to be realized is that he is being held at a higher standard than the "plumber" because it is his job to enforce the laws, not unplug toilets. Nothing but hope for John and his family while he gets drug through the mud.

Just because he is a deputy doesnt mean he owns a gun, He may use one doesnt mean he owns one....

Sounds like the wife caught him again and is after his job. What was the abuse, did she have injury? Altoona cops love arresting deputies, but they have never gotten a conviction on a deputy yet.

Domestic assault is what it is! Office Negrete should do some serious thinking about his actions and so should the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Is this the kind of officer Polk County wants.
