    Don't know the guy nor care alot about the story. But Character and Background has alot to do with being in a Public Servant Position. Those things are evaluated before he was hired and should be evaluated while actively employed as well. The private industry also has standards as such, however, unless they are a prominent figure, then it's much easier to hide from public view.

    I know this man. He is a good man and a Godly man. These charges are bogus. I hope he gets his justice. This is a travesty. I am appalled at the comments on here.

    I guess once some people think once they have been in law enforcement for a number of years they think the have the authority to do what they wish. Its a shame to see someone who people should be able to trust so corrupt.

    People, haven't the republicans taught you anything? This should not be a public issue.

    Wow, everyone is making assumptions on the LEO and only 2 vague paragraphs were printed. First off, regardless of his profession, if he did this he should pay the consequences. But most of us know that when someone has a vendetta against an LEO, it is very easy to bring malice into it. It will be interesting to see what "really" happened.
