What to do with lying cops?

Well, first of all, we should recognize they’re human like the rest of us. I mean, none of us are perfect, right? We’re all guilty of a little dishonesty, now and then, and the folks who wear the badge aren’t saints any more than we are. Everyone fudges a bit now and then, it’s just human nature. I’m not making excuses for it, I’m just saying it’s an imperfect world, and what are you gonna do … oh, the hell with it:

“A Louisiana police officer who claimed he was shot while on duty had instead shot himself in the leg, Deputy Chief Darrell B. Basco of the Pineville Police Department Administrative Bureau told CNN. John Michael Goulart Jr., 25, was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of criminal mischief and one count of malfeasance in office after falsely claiming he’d been shot, according to Basco. ‘The investigation led to a determination that the officer shot himself, concealed and altered the facts,’ according to a statement from Basco.”

Read story here. One wag said “at least he didn’t say it was a Black Lives Matter protester. If he would have done that the cops would have shot a bunch of black people in retaliation.” (Read that here.) You wonder who he was planning to frame.

Where do they get these people? A lot of people who shouldn’t be cops are cops. Oh, and police work is dangerous, let’s not forget that. The guy might have a wife and kids. Let’s keep his family safe. By finding another line of work for him.
