not well said. If your cop, you have to obey the law because you uphold the law. the chief should be fired. On the other note how many warnings have you passed out in the past year for people driving careless. Probably a dozen warnings to the many tickets you have passed out. Ticket happy. Your not heros, it is a job. A hero is someone who is saving a person life without being paid. Come on. Do your job! Quit crying. He should be in jail and be fired. I would be fired from my job.
So what you are saying is that all the officers that have given their lives in the line of duty are not "heroes" because they get paid. So I guess all the soldiers are not heroes either or all the firefighters and officers that rushed into the World Trade Center aren't either. He was not charged with any crime so why would he go to jail. The investigating agency did not find enough evidence to make an arrest. Get over it already. Until you have the guts to do what he has done for 20 plus years your comments mean nothing.

Police officers risk there life everyday they work and all the media wanted to do is talk about there mistakes. Maybe you should talk about all the arrest this man has made over the years. You know putting away the drug deals, murders, and rapist.

I would never do what he has done for 20 years. I would drink too. Police officers become angry over the years. Good luck.
Ok now

Why would he announced to the public that he has a drinking problem and that he is getting help for when he Says drinking wasn't a issue during the car accident. mmmmm..something fishy is going on. Why did the cops give him a alcohol breath test when he admitted he started drinking at home. It was a waste of time to give him that test. The real truth behind his story is that he left the scene because he was drinking and the department is covering up the story because he is a good police chief. Special privilages. Wow! I am glad he did not kill anyone!!
