And the City already drug tests the PD officers! Sounds like Paul or one of his cronies has something to hide?

They should be drug tested. If they test my kid so he can play ball they should test the cops to play with guns. Yep they got something to hid alright.

Sheriff says hes for testing his deputies but with the AG ruling which obviously says they cant be tested then what is he to do? At this moment its a violation of their rights to do so. We need new case law. plus he is a little leary since that drunk cop they ran off sued them over something like this.

That Sheriff didn't say a word when the city starting drug testing his officers (remember that the PD answers to the Sheriff in MV!), it was when one of his pets over at the SO ran the risk of getting tested that he raised a fuss and invoked that AG opinion... Wonder who or what he was covering for?

How is it against their rights ? They can arrest people for drugs but its ok for them to do it ? You can have your kids even taken from you if cps request a drug test if you refuse . But its against a law officers rights? How is it we don't have the same rights then ? Kinda sounds like what my parents used to say " do as I say not as i do " and the whole picture is who do you go to when the law officials are corrupt ? Because no one will believe you cause they are the law

WELL,DOES THIS MEAN THE RIGHTS OF OFFICERS AND JAILERS WERE TAKEN AWAY, WHEN FIRED AFTER DRUG TESTING?WILL THEIR NAMES BE CLEARED? WILL THEY GET THEIR JOBS BACK? COULD THIS MEAN LAWSUITS? I HOPE SO! SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PICK AND CHOOSE WHO HAS TO BE TESTED. I CAN'T GET A JOB WITHOUT BEING TESTED AND AGREEING TO RAMDOM TESTING.WHY ARE THEY ANY DIFFERENT? ALOT OF PEOPLE ON WELFARE MIGHT WORK IF THEY DID'T HAVE TO PASS A DRUG TEST.BUT THEN AGAIN IF TESTED BEFORE GETTING HOUSING AND FOOD STAMPS,THEY WOULD ALL BE HOMELESS AND HUNGRY.MAYBE THE CRACK HEADS SHOULD GO TO WORK AT POLICE DEPT. GIVE THEM ALL GUNS? CRAZY!
