I get that you have to keep personnel discipline actions confidential, but where is the public apology to the tween for bullying her and the public explanation from Marshal Patterson of the law that he lied about, and why in the world would you want to keep on payroll a cop that is too cowardly to do these things after he's shamed your town across the nation?

Sincerely,

Heh, I wrote to those folks this morning; haven't heard anything back, though.......don't expect to. I'm quite sure they didn't dig what I had to tell them. :D
Great minds . . .

Cool, I'm sure that he'll be fired now and the mayor will then resign in shame. Thank you for your scathing service.

My pleasure. It's good to remind them now and again they're not omnipotent......or in some cases merely potent.

Strange and tragic story in the local news today up here.....a young Big Stone Gap, VA police officer and his cousin were both found dead in a pickup truck on a rural road. The event has been described as a murder/suicide. I consider it strange bordering on weird.

First cousin?

So, not finding pics of the cousin with a couple of articles and not even knowing the gender, I googled Emeri Connery. Whoa, I was NOT expecting that.

I sort of thought this was a weird forbidden love type of thing from the start....tonight the local stations had funeral announcements for the cop. Big Stone Gap is a really small town....those folks will be talking about this thing after all of us are dead. It's what they do.

Article said they hadn't stated who did the shooting. Witness said he heard 5 shots. Good guess would be the one who only had one bullet hole would probably be the shooter. Backwoods sleuthing, I guess.

That means that it was the cop. Besides, she would not have needed a weapon to squish him like a bug.

Story smacks suspiciously of a kissing cousin affair gone wrong.

Yup.

Medical examiner: Big Stone Gap officer shot cousin then committed suicide

This station has no further updates after 3/14. There may be some out there, but my question is answered.

Nurses bail out a father arrested for violating traffic laws while rushing his choking baby to hospital

Darius Hinkle was doing, arguably, what every father in his situation would when his one-year-old daughter started to choke on a penny. “First thing in my mind was getting her to the hospital,” Hinkle told Fox 2 Now.

Despite not having a valid driver’s license, he rushed her to the hospital, clocking, what police say, was 100 miles per hour.

Upon arriving at the hospital, he had a trail of police, from different agencies, behind him with their lights on. He, and his daughter’s mother, Donecia Pittman, were ordered out of their vehicle with their hands on their head. Pittman told the outlet that she was screaming their daughter was choking.

Hinkle was promptly arrested for traffic violations while staff at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville, Ill. treated his baby.

After the terrifying incident, Pittman went to the police station to bail Hinkle out. To her surprise, a person was ahead of her asking to bail out Darius Hinkle. As Pittman was wondering just who the woman was, she turned around and explained that she was a nurse at Touchette Regional Hospital. She and other nurses had chipped in to bail Hinkle out of jail.

Hinkle told Fox 2 Now, “I can’t thank [the nurses] enough,” for both their kindness shown towards him and for saving his little girl....
Hey cops - :---P

I am so proud of my colleagues for saving the baby, for bailing out Dad and for sticking it in the faces of the cops. Interesting that the MD apparently did not chip in. Most are great, but a few are jerks.

"what police say, was 100 miles per hour."

It'll be interesting to know what the judge thinks of this. 100 mph. is illegal in any setting, especially through city streets. At the time of arrest, the cops were doing their duty: upholding the law.
The article states "Hinkle was promptly arrested for traffic violations while staff at (the hospital) treated his baby." I take this to mean they allowed him to take the baby in for treatment before arresting. The law is the law.

BTW, for you IP chaserdowners, I am now the proud owner of a previously gummit-owned Panasonic Satellite ToughBook that rotates satellite Internet reception from any point in the US of A; just like in my working days.

:lol: :!:

Centreville, Illinois
Population Estimate (2016) 5,035

With enough time for "a trail of police, from different agencies," he almost certainly topped 100 mph on rural roads, perhaps on I-255, NOT on "city village streets". All of us have hit 100 on a flat rural road or interstate, and did so perfectly safely. Remember, he had his baby and partner in the car, and a police ecort ;) - he was NOT going to wreck.

A wreck can happen at any speed, with or without an "escort". :lol:
City, town, village, burg, rural or open road; 100 mph is illegal with or without an "escort". Even LEO's and emergency personnel are prohibited from reaching those speeds. I repeat, it's the cop's duty to uphold the law, not to decide whether or not to arrest or issue a ticket; that's why we have judges, hence my remark about the judge's decision.

(Cops can, in many cases, afford some leniency or issue a warning; but given the numbers of the pursuers, that move would have been unwise)
