Are there any rules in the manual requiring cops to wear name badges so as to make identifying cops easier?

Well anyway, obviously the beard issue got MicHELL Wynn's attention since 2011 as important an issue as it is, but did he find time for things like this from the PLANET: PPD SOURCES OFFER MORE ON 'STEROIDsGATE' AND BEYOND; INFORMANTS FINGER POLICE STRATEGIC REPONSE TEAM, WHICH THEY CLAIM IS AN OT SCAM..... and things like "Do We Need the Strategic Response Team, or Is It an OT Scam of Guys Playing Rambo. "There are sources within Pittsfield Police Department who claim that the SRT is simple the vehicle through which some officers can feed at the public through with massive amounts of OT, being paid for member to train and even sit around and do nothing but wait for the calls that never come." "GOALPOST continues: SRT is 'Overkill" and Not Needed. And PPD sources Offer More On "Steroidsgate" and Beyond "Morale is at an all time low. Even the Old Timers with say this. The tension within the PPD is so thick, everytime you go in the building, you could cut it with a knife." and stuff like: "If Kirchner goes down, the rumor is he's going to spill the beans on the whole drug unit OT scandal to save his hide." AND OT and Disability Claims Drive Police Department into Debt .... Fire and Personnel Departments also in the red .... Taxpayers have to cough up the difference to take care of the nearly $8000G's in over spending....

and this from the PLANET: "It takes a Frank Serpico, a person with integrity and guts who knows what's going on from the inside and comes forward on the record, to break it open."

from PLANET VALENTI 5/17/2011: PPD SOURCES OFFER MORE ON 'STEROIDsGATE' And BEYOND "TOUCHDOWN Points to SRT OT Abuse, Says Taxpayers Are Getting KILLED "The SRT Team overtime needs to be investigated. They are GUARANTEED overtime each week just for training! It's better than road jobs," and The Planet asked TOUCHDOWN if the SRT was needed. He or she answered this way: "The reality is the team isn't really needed. It's just a toy for [Chief] Wynn/Winston ect. to play dress up in. Bradford left the team last year and Wynn and Winston guard the team like it's a sacred cow"

Officer Fluck face, thank you for showing the public just how the pittsfield police handle disagreements. It seems these days the only way to actually thwart crime is to call the pittsfield police, they will help you!! Not so much, if you call help not even bothering to go to suspicious residents that house criminals, or condemned apartments thefting from disabled families. Pittsfield Police Motto? The only way to stop crime is to watch Rambo First blood a thousand times, kick up the black garb, and deal with it yourself. Yes, to protect and serve. Disgusting.

Why you ungrateful prick. You act like you think cops should protect citizens from alleged murders like Adam Lee Hall, who I might add, the FBI considered "uncontrollable" and "much too dangerous" even before his murdered and dismembers three victims and the other bat wielding thug who did a bash & smash on a woman's head after the cops provided taxi service to him. Even though he had allegedly just assaulted three other women. Take that protect and serve and stick it where the sun don't shine. I hope next time you call the cops you're only lucky enough to end up with a mouthy female cop to bust your balls.

Are they still putting that protect and serve crap on cruisers? If they are it should be replaced with COPS ARE LIARS & THUGS. It took two cops and six months to come up with those NEW graphics for the new cruisers. And what they came up with is "POLICE". But then it only took six months and two cops working on it.

Good thing Pittsfield doesn't have cops breaking into the evidence room to just look at illegal drugs.

Were was Lenihan's indignation when little black Rambo and assorted other PPD goons were getting paid overtime to play dress up? And like Wynn, Bradford is also an impotent foul nasty malicious pile of schitt, a putrid repugnant dangerous runt with a Napoleon complex.

Taxpayers have to cough up an additional $800,000G's in PPD and fire dept. in over spending. Were was the federal lawsuit, then? Did the Ruberto, Wynn, and the city council conspire to cover up the drug unit OT scam?

Taxpayers pay for the PPD and they stop me from doing what I want and that is diddling children. I had mine taken away for diddling in their pants. And I pay taxes. I should be allowed to diddle your kids or any kids for that matter.
