Don't blame the officers? PLEASE! Williams was apparently sitting in a room full of officers, intoxicated with a firearm and not a one of them thought to conduct a field sobriety test on him? They just sent him home? Did it not cross their mind that apparently he had broken a few laws that day? Or is it just a part of being in the "good ole boys club" and the laws do not apply to any of them? Williams will be back on the street in no time. At least I know if I ever get pulled over by him and have to go to court that it can easily get thrown out. Who is ever going to take his word for anything?
I have to agree with Ceeweed in this. I mean seriously? This officer shows up to a firearms training under the influence and the police department just sent him home. It seems that they encourage bad behavior in thsir officers. Why wasn't he arrested? Obviously he drove under the influence (again) to get to a firearms training. Also, was he in possession of a firearm? If so thats another law that he broke for being in possession of a firearm while under the influence. If any of us showed up to our jobs under the influence I tend to think we would be out on the streets faster than we could blink, however, this man gets to keep his job and gets a nice vacation behind a desk. So what, hes working Monday through Friday bankers hours now? Wow! What a punishment. No wonder crime in our community is the way it is if this is the way our police department is run. What a joke!
I guess my question is if williams was at a training exercise, does that mean he had his gun on him? And if so is that not in violation of the law to be in possession of a weapon when under the influence or does it not count if you are a police officer?
