Yea lets hire these clowns back as officers of the law. Talk about fabricating evidence these nut cases would go out of the way to put someone away with fake evidence. Let him remain nothing in life but a hoax himself.

If lying to the public is a crime against the code of the cop, then may his former position be taken from him.

Their job utmost is to hold up the law. You can't do that if you yourself can't behave properly. I'm in a field where someone's credibility is the person. Perception is the law. If I give a brief and a piece of information isn't accurate, serious things can happen. If I went around fabricating stories like this and my higher-ups found out about it, there goes my credibility and I'll be swabbing decks or cl... [More]
