It is tragic that the officer was allowed to keep his job until the video surfaced and embarrassed, or perhaps exposed, the entire town.

Without the dash cam, the motorist didn't stand a chance. I pray for justice. Municipalities need to know that they will be held accountable for the actions of their duly appointed officials.

They really should reconsider who they allow to carry a gun and a badge. Shame on those who knew what they had in the reserve police force . Condolences to the rest of Coopertown.

Bennett was the worst ever. He was a smartass and used to meet women in his police car and cheat on his poor wife. He cheated with a friend and she had to help him "hide" his police car in springfield while they messed around. Glad he is GONE.....He also sexted her with his phone that belonged to the city. All while on duty or working OT.

Pretty strong accusations huh. You should know that these posts can be used as evidence if someone decides to sue you for slander. It was my understanding their work phones had text features disabled. Hmmm. And who cares anymore? That whole city is gonna get shut down one day if they dont straighten up.

Sounds like someone is a disgruntled ex of Bennett. To have that many details sounds like you know him. Then again, the details are all wrong considering I worked with him and knew his schedule. He simply didn't have the time. I suggest you look to your own house and make sure it's in order before you judge someone else's and then try to distort the truth. It's just trashy.

Csi obviously has no idea what he is talking about. That black car was only out for a couple months and the only thing those work phones would do is call. . .. I tried to text information for my report and couldn't. Just another ignorant person that is disgruntled. The truth is bennitt solved crimes and did his job. When someone broke in my house he got arrests and most of my stuff back. I heard after he left they didn't make any arrests for months. Once again everyone is dwelling on tge past when this is a perfect opportunity to change things for the better. A fresh start so let's talk about what we can do to make that happen . . .

CSI... Obviously you don't know what you're talking about. Considering I worked with him in 2009 on a daily basis. The kind of phone C'town issued to the officers did not have text capability. I would suggest you either get your facts straight or stop distorting the truth on purpose. Try telling the truth. Your life will improve.

morons... If you are who I think you are, please don't forget that there was another officer who worked your case too. I'm glad and proud to have helped.

???? You sound like you could use an education. I did try to text information for my report and the officers phone did not except it, so not real sure what you are getting at or what your problem is. Not bennit or any of the old officers have anything to do with this thread and I'm pretty certain they are much happier and better off not being here anymore. They are not the racist wannabes that this thread is about. Move on! Y'all seem to harp in the past instead of the problems we have to deal with now.
