This man is a Police Chief. And, as such, is obviously under a lot of stress. More stress than others in our society face. He, more likely than not, used these precription drugs to deal with that stress. The fact that he did not actually have a legitimate prescription for the prescription drugs should not be of great concern. When a regular citizen obtains presription drugs via a false prescription they must be held accountable for their illegal actions. However, when a LEO does the same thing, especially a Police Chief, a softer line with staying within the letter of the law makes sense. Again, clearly this man is under a lot of job related stress. And, these precription drugs served as his safety valve. This man has risked his life every single day for you people. He is a true Hero and he deserves the support of the people who he has bravely served.

As Martha would say it's a good thing.
