admin. leave, i bet were still paying him. If he is convicted the boys in the big house will show him the proper way to use a baton....I agree that the vast majority of our law enforcement professionals are out there, are outstanding public servants, but they know which ones of heir fellow officers are not suited for the job. But they have a mentality of the public against us, and they side with fellow corrupt officers rather than do what they know is fair. Tell me Windsor Heights won't let a $60,000 s.u.v. blow by at 15 over, but pull over a guy in a 92 celebrity for 3 over. Oh yeah when the cops seize a vehicle they get first crack at it at auction, tell me that doesn't breed corruption.

seems to me that cops are always guilty until proven innocent, how would anyone else appreciate that? i dont know this guy but in the past they always get a bad rap yet deal with things we could never handle...how about a little slack for the guy...

I absolutely agree, but you have to realize he has the power to take away your rights, put you in jail, or kill you. Cops always have the excuse that they are just enforcing the laws, That defense didn't work to well for the Nazi's at Nuremberg. You probably know as well as I do that he was the kid in grade school who was certain he was going to be in the Special Forces when he grew up. Special Ed most likely. Probably just getting revenge for all the people who picked on him as a kid.

Ever notice that when a cop gets an OWI, they always hit something, ie, non-cop witnesses?

You see public servents teachers, administrators etc in the paper for regular OWI, where they just got pulled over, but with a cop they always hit something.

Sure seems like if there's no cop witnesses, they are turned loose

You're right, half of my wife's family are cops in Des Moines, the other half have been to the Joint. The only difference is the cops have the power to better cover their tracks.

Is this not the same man that was involved in a shooting downtown where he was carrying his gun in the bars and shot and killed a kid because he thought the kid was going to kick him?? OH MY-- Dangerous then and no justice. I hope he gets what he deserves this time and I would not think paid administrative leave would be an option. Julius-- I hope you finally get the justice you deserve--- I miss you.

Yesss only the guys in prison sure won't treat him like everyone else, Im sure the abuse and terror he has done to people will be re-visited on him ten fold. Maybe he should get boobs tattooed on his back while awaiting trial. That way he won't get hep-c from the needles.

Why is it when a police officer or deputy sherriff gets arrested for any crime, especially domestic abuse, they are placed on paid "administrative leave". No work No pay. This would save us taxpayers a bundle.

wow I didn't realize that, just assumed someone who treats his loved ones that way, sure wouldn't have any regard for the rest of us. Our upstanding law enforcement officers need to speak out, cops like him put them all in danger, making a tough job nearly impossible.

Doesn't a domestic abuse charge, require a 24hr stay in jail until bond can be posted? If so why was this officer let out after a few hours?

Just curious if any of you know his wife or have spoke to the wife's family. My guess is none of you have. It's amazing how by-standers toss in their two cents with absolutely zero knowledge of the true facts. I would suggest you all really think about how much you know of this particular case before tossing around allogations that the wife might read.
REMEMBER there is a wife and family members that are going through some things AND until someone has a master plan to propose to congress on how to run the judicial system I think we should let the system do its thing.

My heart goes out to his wife and his family--- if his gun waving antics would have been corrected years ago when he was involved in the shooting of that kid the situation might be different. I hope he suffers horribly and that justice is finally taken for the life that was taken. Kharma does come back to haunt you.

Your vendetta has nothing to do with this incident. I know exactly what you're speaking of, and I'm sorry for your loss. However, truth be known, for those who don't remember, your young friend was hanging out in the Court Ave. area looking for homosexuals to beat up (gay bashing). He and his friends encountered some men walking together, one who had an earring. They began assaulting what they thought were gay men, but they turned out to be two off-duty officers. Your deceased loved one attempted to grab one of the officer's firearms and was shot and killed. Sounds like Kharma already came around. So please stop trying to cause drama over a completely unrelated incident that you obviously can't recall (or refuse to admit) correctly in the first place.

Why do you think Julius was a victim? Do you think it's ok to assault homosexuals???? There's a reason this deputy wasn't charged in this case, and it's not because he's a cop. Too many authority haters out there. The only ones that have a problem with law enforcement are the ones who cause the problems in the first place.

Anybody with half a brain would also use spell check before they posted such an idiotic statement on the internet. There's your sign.
