    Journey - no more questions. Don't be so defensive all the time. We all have our opinions...just like other things. Get a grip. Have an opinion without putting down others or name calling.

    and I bet you 100% support his wife who could have kicked, beat, punched, bit, and whatever else to him but when he touched her, he got arrested....but in your world, he would be at fault because hes in law enforcement.

    Thank you oh so much Leo-nc and LoveSomeGolo for effortlessly proving my point, that when there is a story about a LEO gone bad, that you will always be there to throw sticks and stones at those that scare you with their maturity and common sense. Now, back to the story at hand, Yet ANOTHER LEO breaking the law and making the rest of the LEO's look bad, thus prompting a multitude of feelings here on Golo, I bet you two think the SHP that killed two innocent people while chasing down a speeder at 120MPH was in the right too huh?

    "Journey really works at a fast food joint with WiFi so when he is not looking up women he can't have, he is on Golo.."----

    hahaha, good one. I like it. Probably true, too... Would you like fries with that?

    Journey really works at a fast food joint with WiFi so when he is not looking up women he can't have, he is on Golo...

    You don't have to explain yourself to me Journey. But someday you will have to explain it on the job as to why you cost them so much money and do no work. Hate it for ya buddy.

    Funny how I do not see your name on other stories that I post on Leo-nc....care to explain that? All you go out looking for are LEO's in trouble stories trying to support them blindly.
