Sleeping on duty, sex and more. Florida heroes risk their lives everyday

“(CNN/WFTS/RNN) – It’s not cool for Pinellas County night-shift deputies to arm wrestle, put each other in choke holds, sleep and, you know, have sex on the job.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri fired Deputy Scott Nichols and slapped several other deputies with lengthy suspensions after seeing videos and photos stored on Nichols’ phone.

“It was appalling and very disappointing,” Gualtieri said, adding that Nichols should not have let the others engage in the unprofessional behavior. “The sleeping is a big deal. They should not be sleeping. They’re getting paid to do the job, they need to do the job.”

He said internal affairs discovered the horseplay during a separate investigation into charges of sexual misconduct against Nichols.

Days before Gualtieri dropped the hammer, WFTS in Tampa reported that Nichols was demoted from corporal to deputy and given an 80-hour suspension after the investigation concluded that found the 32-year-old Nichols, who is married, was having sex with two female deputies who are also married.”

How about that?

These are the guys/gals that are enforcers of the law

Regular heroes right?

Just because they strap on a badge and a gun

This is the caliber of people that fill out that blue uniform

Hero is deed, not dress

No one gets default hero status anymore

No one is above the ordinary citizen because the state declares them an “Officer of the court”
