You're right. They don't get paid enough. Too many people are always worried about how the police do their jobs. They don't get paid well at all, but they are willing to protect us citizens, our property, put their lives on the line, and deal with situations most of us would not be willing to face. To the person who posted this, lay off the police and mind your own business. I'm off my soapbox now. I have given my two cents!
Are you serious

Are you serious? Didn't these individuals CHOOSE to become Police Officers knowing the payment that would be received (and risk)? How can you suggest to lay off and mind your own business as they are civil servants accountable to the taxpayers?
Have you been pulled over by a MJ cop or had a cop investigate a minor traffic accident? My experiences have been REALLY negative with the few Policemen that I have dealt with. For some reason they seem to have a chip on their shoulder and are quick to make very accusatory statements. Really inappropriate and unnecessary to enforce simple traffic regulations.

In 2003, Mt. Juliet lost an officer who CHOSE to become a police officer. He was out PROTECTING the citizens of Mt. Juliet and Tennessee.
Last Saturday in Chattanooga a police officer was shot to death. I think a piece of me died with him.
In November of 1976 a Dallas police officer was murdered. At the trial of the man accused of his murder the prosecutor referred to the police as a thin blue line separating society from anarchy. I think he was right. They are the line that separates good from evil.
In the ancient days cities had walls to protect them. The city walls kept the bad guys out at night. They kept the people safe. In the city, with the walls around you and the gates shut, you were safe. The police are like that. They are sworn to protect and serve. They have sworn an oath to protect us from the bad guys. They all know it is a costly oath. It may cost them their lives. It did for Sgt. Chapin. They are the wall, a thin blue wall, that keeps us safe.
As Christians we know God is really the one who protects us. He is our wall, our rock, our protector. However, God uses police officers as His ministers of protection, His avenger who brings justice.(Romans 13:1-7) It is God who establishes authority, and it is God who arms the authorities. It is God who said “But if you do what is evil, be afraid…”(Romans 13:4) God will not allow one who strikes His servant to go unpunished.
When the thin blue line is crossed, it is an offense against our society, our nation, our city, and most importantly it is an offense against our God. The wall was attacked last Saturday morning. One of our protectors, one of God’s ministers was shot down. Sgt. Chapin gave his life for us.
When anarchy struck Chattanooga on Saturday morning God’s ministers responded. Six men ran to the gunfire. Don’t miss this point. The first two officers responding to the alarm, the call for help from a civilian, were fired upon. They called for help and before it was over six officers had engaged the perpetrator in a gunbattle. They all ran toward the gunfire. It is not natural. People run from gunfire. It is natural to run, duck, and take cover. But running to the gunfight? Well that is the stuff of heroes.
Six men put it all on the line to protect our lives from evil. They ran to the gunfight to protect us. The Medal of Honor is awarded to our military men for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against any enemy of the United States. It seems to me that Sgt. Chapin and five of his fellow officers did just that - they ran to the gunfight, not away from it. At risk of their own lives they engaged in an action against our enemy.
I sometimes hear shallow descriptions like “Sgt. Chapin died doing his job,” or “He died to protect our way of life.” These may be well-meaning, but they are just too weak. He died for us. He put his life on the wall, so you and I would not have to.
I think when one officer is killed in the line of duty every officer dies a little. I attended the viewing for Sgt. Chapin tonight. He was an active member of a local church and had a clear testimony of a love for our Lord. I could not begin to count the number of people in line to pay their respects, perhaps a thousand. His young teenage daughter took me by the hand and thanked me for coming by. I couldn’t speak. The pain was severe, my heart broke. I died a little tonight.
As I left I walked past a class of police recruits. They were standing in line to pay their respects. They were standing in line to take Sgt. Chapin’s place on the wall. God still has ministers willing to run toward a gunfight. The thin blue line is still intact.

I agree with are you serious.. The men and women that choose to become Police Officers are very aware of the kind of pay they will receive and they do it anyway. I'm assuming it's because that is what they love to do and not for the money.

I appreciate their sacrifice I really do but they are not above the law and we aren't paying them to have uh hum extra curricular activities while on the job.

As for was he fired.. no.. he quit before he could be fired. I know him personally and this is not his first time having sexual misconduct on the job.. just the first time he got caught.

A few people have said to mind your own business and maybe we would if he had not been concerned about his own pleasure while on duty.

I wish Chuck the very best and hope he can get his career in law enforcement back on track and learn from his mistakes.

Why would you morons want to pay some pervert thug to have sex, does your boss pay you for that and furnish you with a car? You people are idiots, do away with all cops but 1 and make it mandatory that all adult citizens carry a firearm, then you won't have near the crime out of the thugs on both sides of the badge.

I'm not disagreeing with the concept, because that is how Mr. Juliet used to be-- two constables. But today's world is different. People's morals are different, and because of that, this concept could cause more anarchy than peace.

You might say that anarchy is the way to go, but the thin strip of "civilization" as we call it is all that separates us from devolving back into primitive beings... And I don't mean monkeys. Haha!
The Truth

First off, you do not know what you are talking about. I am very good friends with Chuck and this is not the truth. If you "know him personally" then you would know the facts about the situation.

1. He did not quit because he was going to be fired over sexual misconduct. He quit because of violating the police departments vehicle use policy. Chuck chased down a speeding vehicle on the interstate that was traveling at over 100MPH. Chuck's speeds while chatching up to the vehicle exceeded the speeds allowed in MJPD's policy. He was on "work review" during this time for the allegations brought forth during the sexual misconduct allegations.

2. There were "allegations" of sexual misconduct brought forward in a complaint to the police department by a ex-boyfriend of a girl that Chuck had been seeing while off duty. The ex-boyfriend filed a complaint on Chuck AFTER Chuck had filed a complaint on him at his job 3 days earlier. Clearly in retaliation!

3. Once the complainant was made by the ex-boyfriend, the police department investigated the complaint as they do with all complaints that come in on the officers. Many on the "allegations" were found to be false and Chuck was NOT terminated. Chuck was then placed on "work review" for 6 months because the MJPD policy states that officers can not let their personal life affect their professional life.

If MJPD's investigation found that Chuck was conducting himself in sexual acts or misconduct while on duty, he would have been fired on the spot! 5 months after the sexual misconduct investigation was complete and Chuck had returned to work is when the speeding vehicle on the interstate incident occurred. As a result of the speeding vehicle incident, Chuck gave the Chief a 2 week notice / letter of resignation, it was accepted by the Chief, and Chuck's last day was 2 weeks after the letter was dated. I am pretty sure that Chuck's letter of resignation is in his file in Human Resources at City Hall. I am sure if you wanted to go see it, you could.

Get your facts straight. It is very clear that you don't know Chuck as well as you think you do or what in the heck you are talking about.

Of chuck and always will be, that being said i am glad somebody came out and set it straight. Although i have my speculations on who you are but nevertheless im glad its straight now. I will say that he did get a bad deal from the pd. There was a person that had a personal vendetta against him and brought it into a proffesional place. And for that sgt e i would cordially like to tell you that your a p.o.s.

That same sgt you speak of above, he was the one riding chucks ass after the accusations were made of sexual misconduct telling him all kinds of things and how sorry he was...GUESS WHAT GUYS that same p.o.s. was cheating on his wife the whole time and she kicked him out and he had to move in with another officer in mj. That just shows you how sorry ezell is. For god sakes the guy was a cheerleader in college. I dont knkw why he puts on such a tough guy image, bc hes not by any means. Hes like 90% of the cops take tjat gun and that badge off and there scared of everything

Glad he is no longer a MJ police officer. I've known him a pretty long time and he is not a good person. Period. He is trash.

And here in Lebanon and Wilson county police have murdered more unarmed people than any gang and still keep drawing a pay check
