Several scientific studies have shown that long term steroid use often results in permanent hair loss on the scalp due to damage to the follicles.
Testicular shrinkage usually preceeds the hair loss.
If the weave fits - wear it.

Hey guys. I'm having a Labor Day BBQ, and I'm inviting all of you to come over. Here's what I have so far: hot dogs, sausages, bratwurst, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fried chicken, chicken wings, ice cream, potato salad, Budweiser, Dr. Pepper, Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream, bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos for a vegetable, and some really good CDs. What I don't have: a Slip 'N Slide, hot babes. So bring those. See you there.

Suspended for cover up.

This guy is a LT of a police dept, cover up a stolen mv and all that he gets is a suspension.

He is in charge of a shift of officers whom he swears to the truth of their reports when he cant tell the truth himself.

If a civilian would lie on a sworn statement to the police, has Stratford PD arrest them in the past?

Is this one of those guys that got arrested and got accelerated rehabilitation?

Don’t you have to plead guilty to a crime to get accelerated rehabilitation?

If I were innocent and got arrested, I wouldn’t plead AR…I’d fight it.

How did these guys get promoted? Sounds very suspicious to me, but I am no lawyer.

Who helped the guys who were arrested?
Truth & Justice.
They were both cleared to return to work and given back pay.

Who helped the slimeballs who drove & covered up the stolen Lexus?
Trickery & deceit - along with Sal's list of cronies.
One weasel was suspended and the other chump quit to avoid facing the music.

Seems clear to me.

HAHAHA…David, did you dump that Jizebel screen name??!!!!

Truth and Justice in a criminal prosecution is an acquittal by jury, or a dismissal by a judge for lack of probable cause. A case that endures months of judicial scrutiny, only to end with plea of accelerated rehabilitation right before trial is to start is very different than “truth and justice.”

Accelerated Rehabilitation is pre-trial probation that frees up a clogged court system, and it gives an offender a second chance without a criminal conviction. Basically it is a legal loophole and has nothing to do with “truth and justice.”

If I were arrested and “didn’t do it,” I’d fight it and seek “truth and justice” by an acquittal.

What was the topix about?

Its about PINTO who covered up the fact one of his detectives was driving around a stolen car.

Its about PINTO who called dispatch and had the dispatcher remove the car out of STOLEN STATUS because he said the car was entered as stolen by mistake( without any proper paperwork stating so just because PINTO said

Its about PINTO lieing under oath that he had no knowledge of who removed the car from Stolen status but 5 months earlier hes on a recording with dispatch telling the dispatcher to remove it.

Tippy, come on now....lets see, all that time and money spent to prosecute those cops, I think the original charges were like 19 felonies between all 3 and they drop everything except 1 Disorderly Conduct charge, I mean that sounds like the had a strong case "NOT". Seems to me the TRUTH came out. What a joke and a waste of tax payer money. Seems like an attempt at a mailcious prosecution.

Ex-Commisioner Popik ran this ethical operation - got his guy 30 days off without pay.
That guy also quit.

Does Popik have a spreadsheet so we can see how much use the stolen car had?
And the overtime? Line by line?

After reading John Popik's letter and resume doesn't it look like he was bucking for the chiefs job?
Like right out from under the guy?
Gee, do you think that being on the Police Commission was to get his chubby foot in the door to replace the current chief?
And now with the new PD structure it is more likely the next chief will come from the hard working officers within the department?
Who will he grace with his vast knowledge next?

So The Popik Plan would block Seymour cops from going to the FBI Academy by keeping them as "Master Sergeants".
Of course he would keep the FBI Academy as a requirement to be chief or deputy chief under The Popik Plan.
Of course Popik has already gone to the FBI Academy - so he is already qualified to be the chief in Seymour under The Popik Plan.
Of course the officers already working there there would never qualify under The Popik Plan.
Of course Popik does not see a problem with The Popik Plan - because "he is a captain".
