How’s that for some heroes? Out there risking their lies every day.
When are we going to stop giving these people default hero status just because they wear a badge and swear an oath?
Any time you have an encounter Win an LEO it is just as likely to be this scumbag as not
Just a few bad apples right?
That is why the city already has five and a whole list of others that they won’t release
That is why this website is filled with so many stories of debauchery and corruption
That is why every time I make a post I pass up on 20 other stories
This has to stop
We the people who are being subjected to this police state have to say that we have had enough and demand change
We are approaching a seminal moment in our nations history and in the end there is no place for crooks and thugs preying on our streets and citizens
The time is coming to replace the domestic warrior with the public servant
They just haven’t gotten the memo yet
“FORT MYERS, Fla. –
Fort Myers police are firing one of their officers after an independent report exposed problems within the department.
Eric Gutridge is one of five officers put on leave after the Freeh report revealed corruption, racial bias and even officers tipping off drug dealers.
NBC2 first reported that the five officers have been on paid leave since February, but Gutridge is the only one currently that has been confirmed fired.
The timing of it all has attorneys working numerous cases in the legal system asking if there are more officers off the job.
“This is just another example of something going on that should be causing everyone serious concern,” said Donald Day, attorney for allegeded Lake Boyz gang member Jari McMiller.
McMiller is the brother of NFL star Sammy Watkins
Just 24 hours earlier, Day argued for the release of the full Freeh report with all the appendix items, that only chief Derrick Diggs was provided.
Gutridge was still on the list of officers on leave until June when we learned of a new list without his name.
In June, captain Jay Rodriguez says some other officers are on administrative leave, but some of those officers have active internal affairs investigations, so their identities are confidential at this time.”
