    "Awww looks like a couple here got speeding tickets recently.

    I for one have had one traffic citation in my entire life. It was about thirty years ago for expired inspection. I do not form my opinions because of past experiences but by observation. If it quacks like a duck, has a bill like a duck, has webbed feet like a duck and swims like a duck I call it a duck. Have I said enough.

    "The city violent crime rate is 309% higher than the national average and 327% higher than the NC average. These are from 2009 numbers. Theres more to tell, but you can research yourself using the internet.

    "Good riddance...makes room for an honest cop.

    Not even Diogenes could find an honest cop if he looked for a hundred years.

    ANGRY how come we the people have to just forget about this one cop, but cops prepare themselves for every little thing because of what SOME citizens MIGHT do. How do I know you want do something? I dont trust you. I prepare. Get over it. Get a better education and a better job. GED cops are hilarious!

    You know, all of you people that are mad about the punishment need to be mad at the JUDGES and not the officer in trouble. Its the JUDGES that set the bond. It is obvious that no one understands this because they THINK they know all about the judicial system...get a clue!

    And this "man" does not represent ALL LEO's...it would be like if someone in your profession was arrested and charged with something and everyone else critisizes your profession...does that make you all bed apples? no so get off the wagon of putting down law enforcement..you hate them until you need them for your little fender bender or you call in a noise complaint because your too much of a coward to go knock on the door of the noise yourself. People are just amazing..(sarcasim if you can't tell and by the looks of it most of you can't)
