Not only should he loose his job, criminal charges should be pursued. We as the genral public would not be so lucky as to be suspended for such conduct. If we were to be alledged to provide achloal to minors we would be arrested and charged. And as for Mayor Paris thinking that he owes this detective a second chance for putting to much pressure on him. You owe the citizens of this city a police force witout corupption. In my eyes his statments were nothing short of carear suicide.

TAXPAYERS WANT TO KNOW WHY THIS LESS THAN HONORABLE SO CALLED OFFICER STILL HAS A JOB!!!!! IF THIS WERE A COMMON CITIZEN THERE WOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED BY OUR SO CALLED PROSECUTOR AND AN ARREST MADE, YET SOMEHOW GOVERNMENT FUNDING FOR OUR PROSECUTORS OFFICE, AND FRANKLIN POLICE DEPARTMENT SEEM TO BE A HIGHER PRIORITY!!! IF BRYAN BURTON CAN FALSIFY HIS HOURS WORKED FOR THE FPD, WHO’S TO SAY HE DOESN'T FALSIFY REPORTS OR EVIDENCE IN INVESTIGATION’S! BRYAN BURTON SEEMS TO FEEL IN HIS OWN MIND HE IS ABOVE COMMON MAN'S LAW.....YET OUR TOP OFFICIALS PROMOTE THE ACTIONS OF BRYAN BURTON BY SLAPPING HIM ON THE WRIST AND GIVING HIM "45 DAYS OF UNPAID TIME OFF." BRYAN BURTON HAS PROVEN THAT HIS CRIMINAL HISTORY IS JUST AS BAD IF NOT WORSE THAN A COMMON LAW ABIDING CITIZEN. THE TAXPAYER WANT HIS BADGE AND CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED AGAINST HIM, HE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN THE PEOPLE HE HAS PUT IN JAIL......... THIS COUNTY SEEMS TO DO A LOT OF COVERING UP WITH ITS CORRUPT OFFICERS THANKS TO PROSECUTOR
BRAD COOPER, OFFICERS GET TO LIVE ABOVE THE LAW WHILE THE COMMON TAX PAYER GETS TO SERVE HIS TIME IN A JAIL CELL RATHER THAN IN A 45 DAY UNPAID "FUN IN THE SUN" RELAXATION COMMUNITY! PROSECTOR BRAD COOPER HAS A "SO CALLED" NO TOLERANCE DRUG POLICIE FOR THE COMMON TAXPAYER BUT YET A DIFFERENT POLICIE FOR HIS "ABOVE THE LAW" POLICE OFFICERS. AND MAYOR PARIS AND PROSECUTOR BRAD COOPER ARE HOPING FOR RE-ELECTION, YES I WILL SLEEP SAFER AT NIGHT KNOWING THESE TWO ARE IN OFFICE AND IN 45 DAYS THIS ABOVE THE LAW OFFICER WILL BE BACK ON PATROL MAKING OUR STREETS SAFE AGAIN, SO MUCH FOR PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN! And found out today (Sat.) where Bryan Burton's Rehab is......he is in Florida.....

I can appreciate that you are entitled to your opinion,But before you go making accusations against people do your homework.First of all the police have to file a report to the prosecutors office before charges can be filed.Second Brad Cooper is a very honorable person.If charges need to be filed against anyone no matter who Brad will do it.Third and finally It is my guess that the reason you are slurring Brads name is more then likely he has filed charges against you or a family member.So go back to school and learn how to spell and do your homework,so that you can state THE TRUE FACTS.

"The true Facts " Huh, I only counted one in your whole post. The other b.s. was opinion, and are you saying that this won't be swept under the rug? What is there left to do? Seems to me the sentence has already been done, it is going the way of a cheap clown trick.

Guess you should of said "The true experience", but then again that is opinion. Experience can be good or it can be bad, it depends on how you use it, as well as how it was obtained. Most people that I ahave been around that have no business talking about thier experience are stuck in 1970 thinking, the other good lot don't need to talk about it, it shows.

Good thing this is going to the state police. Atleast it might have a chance of being just. Used to be you could trust the police, I know I don't, 1 bad apple can spoil the whole basket. This kind of behavior is like a cancer. What are we going to be dealing with 10-20 years down the road?

Responsibility.
