This from a guy who tried to get women to date him in exchange for not charging them for crimes?

This guy impartial.....I don't think so. His reputation as a police officer should be in question. If he was on any other police force, he'd have been fired a long time ago. As a judge, he'd only be given more power to indulge his swelled head in.
Yup

These are faulse statments regarding the detective asking woman for dates. He is one of the good cops.This guy has never had A complaint against him for such alagations.If you know other wise why have you not reported this to his Chief? I also feel safe on his watch.

Hopefully a better candidate will run against him. He has a sorted past and reputation. Any citation put in front of him by a police dept (let alone his own cronies) will not get the un-bias decision it may deserve. He is not even very popular in his own law enforcemnet community (except lehigh's).

There should really be a law keeping local cops from becoming the local magistrate. Robert Hawke will already have a prejudgment waiting for people he has already dealt with as a cop.

Robert is not the type of person you are suggesting. He is dedicated to family and work. There has never been a complaint of what you are suggesting. You would think given the year we are in 2009 smear tactics at the local level would not be used to win a campaign. Vote for honesty!

I have to be honest. I never knew there were so many loosers in our surrounding communities. Perhaps all you people who have grudges against Officer Hawke need to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, "Why am I such a looser?" Perhaps you will then understand a police officers perspective. The man does his job and does it well! Thyler is correct, he is the right guy for this job.

A lot of people voted for Robert Hawke to get him off the streets. The chances of going before him in court is a lot less that being pulled over by him. I have heard lots of people say this. I have heard more bad then good about Robert, whether it is true or not I do not know. My question is how can so many people be wrong when most of what you hear is bad? A lot of people also voted based on whether they were democrat or republican not taking anything else into consideration. People should vote for the best candidate for the job not whether you are democrat or republican.
