    The sad part is he will end up back in law enforcement at some other department and nothing will be thought twice about it

    Yes, that is very sad. I think the group the goverens the law enforcement officers of the state should make a rule where if an officer is terminated for cause or resigned in leiu of termination there certification is terminated and they are barred from serving as an officer in the state of NC again.

    I guess one GOLO'er said it best the other day - protect and serve? Your best bet when you see one is to "DUCK AND SWERVE!"

    This guy was a great example for all the high school kids at the school he was working at. I guess it was do as I say not as I do kind of thing.

    I don't think you will find any LEO that will condone his actions. Stuff likes this gives us all a black eye. He knew better, did it anyway and now has to pay the price.

    jackieflash42, ooh, you're gonna get it now.

    jk, I agree with you. He knew better. Speeding is against the law, no doubt about it.

    Two things I support. Our law enforcement and military communities. Having said that, regardless if you're in either, if you do something as dumb as drinking and driving, then you're on your own and have to suffer the consequences of your own stupidity. I'm sure he was a good deputy and we're all human and make mistakes, but as a law enforcement officer, I'm thinking it's safe to say that he knew better.
