    In many departments forensics techs are not sworn officers and not union. Much easier to fire.

    I thought the photo of the patch at the top was funny. ” Loyalty , Integrity , Honor”. Loyalty (to the P.D.and their lies) Integrity (or total lack of it) Honor (Uh huh yeah right).

    I’ve known several people who had negligent discharges and in every case after seeing them with a gun in their hand for just a few minutes I understood why it happened.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
