He wasn't fired for helping other officers. He was fired for leaving his post without notifying his dispatch and supervisors that he was doing so. While I do think that termination was extreme, provided that this was a solitary event, I can understand where his admin/supervisors are coming from in that the guy just took off without properly notifying his own agency that he was going.

Me too. Sounds like the admin/supervisors are just more "sheep". And they'd also be the first to scream just the oppisite if the ball would have been in their "court".



Some of us will always run to the fire while the sheep are stampeding away in fear.

Quoted for truth. Some of you guys need to open the link and read it before you post.

Where did they expect him to be after getting an "officer down" call though? One would think that standard procedure would be for everyone available to respond.

Sad, truly sad.



This reminds me of an incident (not at my Dept, but in neighboring municipality), in which an Officer called for help while on a MV stop, and the backup officer raced to the scene in which he found the original officer in a struggle with the driver. The backup unit could not get his portable radio to transmit upon leaving his unit, so he called the desk via his personal cell phone. After all was said and done, he was written up and suspended for two days w/o pay for "using a personal cell phone" while on duty (which was against Dept. regulations.)



11 years down, 14 more to go and i'm outta here!
