Captain Dunbar: "Where are you!!??"

Me thinks demotion, decrease in salary and rank along w/administrative leave is in order. Capt. Dunbar, you cannot pick n choose which laws and statutes to enforce and on whom!!

Bad BOY!!

Promote Kobli to fill Dunbar's position...

*sigh* First, I guarantee this wasn't written by late-night talk show host David Letterman.
Second, why is it that when someone does something wrong and people comment negatively on it, they're hypocrites? We can only be offended if we're perfect?

I've only had two speeding tickets in almost 40 years of driving. I have never driven drunk, mostly because I've never gotten drunk.(Hold the comments about what a drag my life and/or I must be. I can have a great time sober and remember what I've done the next morning.)

As a teacher, parent and taxpayer, I'd be very much in favor of seeing Scott Syverson held up as an example. He should AT LEAST be required to perform community service. A stint down at Wishard ER, helping to clean up people injured in DUIs maybe?

Me n my home boy Scott Syverson enjoy a few, now n then. So, what of it!? If the Public found out I was bending elbows with him and then letting him get behind the wheel, they'd be outraged.
But, if I just "phone home" and order my officer to give my home-boy a break, I stay neatly in the background...Get it!?
Maybe, in the future we'll just get some Doobie...

Those of you defending these people kill me. Had the principle caused an accident and killed someone, you'd be the first ones screaming "why did the cop let him go????".
The cop did not "let him go" to where he could have caused an accident and killed someone. I am not defending Syverson...I am defending the officer, though. Any officer has the right to decide and he made his decision. His superiors, given the situation, should have his back...NO MATTER WHAT. He did what he thought was right at the time. And I can absolutely garauntee you that every officer has at one point "given someone a break"...and not just those in power positions. Syverson was wrong in placing the phone calls and "name dropping" in the first place...add that to his drinking and driving...he is the one who's butt should be on the line, not the officer's.
