47 years old, and retired 15 years ago due to bad knees and a heart condition after 12 years on the force??? Something doesn't sound right about this story.

i do not feel bad for him,but i do pity him and the system that let him down in his time of need-he dedicated his life to justice and now will see the other end of the spectrum

but the look i see in his face is of pure desperation and someone needing help as well as justice

Fraud. A lot of cops go out on disability that are perfectly able to continue working. It is a scam. Some are deserving. Most aren't. I know a cop that has been out on disability for 15 years because of a bad back and went on to compete in body building and now runs his own landscaping business. Hard work for someone with a bad back. I'm glad they caught up with this guy. One thing I don't understand... when you rob a bank, should you dress inconspicuously?

Many cops are crooks today I would say Most police department's are bankrupt. So they prey on us to keep their corrupt system running. Within a few years they will be broke as people become aware of their tactics. I wonder if they will at that point as they become more desperate, Write false tickets on false charges. Would not put it past them.

I can understand all of this. He's retired-can't steal from the criminals anymore-so he thought-why not-rob a bank. Makes sense, doesn't it?

He's been divorced and taken to the cleaners. At least now he will have three squares and a cot.

This person loved his job. He was a Sergant. Never stole from anyone. So shut your mouth

"he was wearing a blank Yankees cap"

what the heck is that? Any different than a blank blue cap?

maybe along with his badge he was carrying a blade-less knife without a handle.
