He should have lost his pension. As a cop he needs to be held to a high order conduct.

It is a shame his career had to end with this very bad decision clearly driven by his fatherly instinct causing him to forget about his oath to protect and serve. He was acting as a father protecting his son rather than an officer of the law and that led him to make a very bad decision. I don't see why he just didn't retire, avoiding the embarrassment of being fired. Either way, his son chose to drink and drive destroying so many lives with that young boy paying he ultimate price. One thing to be said here is no one is above the law. My prayers are with everyone involved because multiple lives have been shattered by one careless moment.

Good points. He did spend over 30 years serving the community there. I watched a tape of the meeting during which the comission fired him.
The townspeople were clapping and cheering when the firing was announced. I kind of felt sorry for the crowd, they were reduced to their lowest human form, reminded me of the ancient Romans watching the carnage in the coloseum.
I'm glad I don't live among them.
"Judge not, lest ye be judged"
Anyway, my 2 cents. Tragedy all around in this case.
