I am sorry to hear that he is terminally ill. I was just hoping he would be in a different line of employment.He wont rerun. He allegedly has cancer and is terminally ill. He was given the option of stepping down, and picking his replacement from a pool of 3 and he refused. This is what I have heard from some officers.
Not really. They can still be sued in civil court. :/Sad, truly sad. There is another aspect to this. They could be charged and found not guilty thus putting an end to any further prosecution. Case closed.
What would help the most people the quickest is to start hammering the fact that everyone needs to comply with instructions immediately. I realize that drugs/alcohol are involved sometimes that can make that less likely. But, that's the constant in all these situations that I've seen. If the subject immediately followed instructions we wouldn't be having any of these conversations.
My kids have been told that if they ever find them in the situation,, that no matter what, they do exactly what they are told and only what they are told. If they are told to sing 'I'm a little teapot' that's what they are to do.
Parents, schools and the media need to be getting this communicated better.
Not gonna happen when SOME parents themselves don't respect authority. Their kids grow up with the attitude of, "I don't have to take that!" It starts in school, then continues into adulthood.Parents, schools and the media need to be getting this communicated better.
