Why cant we keep cops? Why does our city hire the people who get fired form other depts? So we lost another one I hear, or at least he was suspended. Did you see our great Detective's comments in the paper about the 2 bodies? He made comments about natural causes and we dont have a killer running around only to find out the next day it WASNT natural causes. Hey, dipstick, how about "No comment at this time". How professional to say no killer is running around.

Here it is: Hawks is his name and even the Assistant Chief is pretty much calling him a dumbass

However, a Ludlow detective disputed that saying that "the illness thing is absolutely, positively not why they died."
Johnson said Wednesday that Detective Thomas Hawks "misspoke."
"There wasn't anything to back up what he said," Johnson said.
There were no signs of foul play involved in the deaths, Johnson said.

Well Hawks is a product of the Leadership down there. The officer or soon to be former officer down there, his name is Giberson. The truth will come out about whats going on down there soon enough.

Its not just one thing he's being accused of, he's being charged with a whole bunch of minor stuff and they're saying his mental state is in serious question. I've heard they sent him to a mental evaluation a least twice to try and find something but it's all came back with a clean bill of mental health. They're saying his mental state is in question, and that he puts the department in disrepute....mind you not, this is not the officer that had sex with a student in the high school while he was a school resource officer, who got to keep his job after being suspended 30 working days or the one that "misspoke" about the deaths in Ludlow.
Last time I checked the D before Hawks' name is detective not a doctor. WOW!

The truth will most definitely come out, it always does, sadly I believe, there is more to this story than what is being passed through the grapevine and I believe we should all go to the meeting on the 13th because it just seems fishy that a cop no one really knows is all of a sudden being fired...sounds like there's more to the story. He's worked down there for 8 years, and is now being fired for ticky tack minor stuff, doesn't add up to me...

so wait.. we are talking about two different officers here. So is there a hearing on Giberson or Hawks on the 13th? What is Giberson accused of?

Giberson, not Hawks. I know the hearing is on Giberson and from what I heard through the grapevine, he's not really accused of anything, I think they are taking a bunch of small things and making it seem huge. Bascially saying he's a problem child of some sort. And from what I gather from it, he won't play ball with all the unscrupulous things that have gone on. From what I understand he was very opinionated on the Eric Love thing and another officer that was fired. I don't know, when I go to the hearing on Monday, I will post more.

there is no problem with hawks or love. Its funny how no one says anything about giberson being with a girl who is 20 years younger than him. Officer Love did not commit a crime, there are people who think what they want, but they dont know. Giberson was 37 years old dating a 18 year old that just graduated from hs. He has a problem with the department because he didnt get promoted to sergeant. Rumor I heard is that the state police is investigation him for a crime. I dont know if its true, but thats what I heard. He is trying to make other officers look bad, when he never took care of his own stuff

The Chief, assistant chief, and the sergeant at Ludlow PD are great people. They have a plan to make the city better, clean up the drugs, make the citizens safe and happy. In my opinion they are doing a great job. I have a feeling some of the 'posters' on here are a little more involved on a personal side with giberson than they are leading on. Remember folks, there are 2 sides to every story. Do not judge the police department or their leadershop, because the leadership at the pd is some of the best out there.

the facts are, everyone has made mistakes in their jobs. If you own up, correct what you did and show your boss that you are sorry and learned your lesson then most bosses will forgive you. I don't know why giberson was fired, but as the original first post stated, he has been fired from policing before. Let the police handle their business. If he needs to go, then they will take care of that. Dont judge, Hawks, Love, or the administration in a negative light. Rumors are almost lies. and the rumors I have heard since I have lived in ludlow are crazy. But I have been here as a resident for 15 years, and I have met Hawks, Love, and the chief. They are fine officers and do a great job.

Whoa Whoa Whoa! WOW! I wasn't trying to open up a can of worms at all by any means! This is a forum, and I said what I heard, like I previously stated, I didn't believe it was the whole story.
