He is a great Police Officer. Has helped & saved many lives, its too bad that the Media wants to focus on all the negatives. Instead of being remembered for all the good things he has done for the community, he will be remembered for this. Only because he is a Police Officer does not mean he is not human. Everyone makes mistakes.

OH REALLY!!! It's called consequences; poor decision making on his part. I bet you would feel a little different if he had hurt or killed someone close to you. Now, there are many people who drink, but don't drive. There are people who drink and kill people when they make the "CHOICE" to get behind the wheel of their vehicle. All the good he has done is gone, period!!!!!!

Reckless, cocky, inmature and abusive.
The way he drives, I'm surprised the rookie has not recked a police unit yet.

Jumps into conclusions too quickly, before making a fair balanced assesment of the ocurrence.
He will benefit of some psychological therapy, proper trainning and reasesment of his psychological profile, before been on the streets by himself unsupervised.

Cathedral City deserves the best, for the safety of their residents.

attitutude towards criticism, helps to learn, and grow.
