"Just like the majority of their civilian counterparts, officers love to gossip and are quick to pass judgment on their peers............"

Try to remember this next time you want to gossip, pass judgement or drop a fellow officer into the media.......

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.

He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.

He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.

He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.

He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became

frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.

He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he

never wavered.

He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He longed for his family during the long hours.

He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely

weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.

He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling

and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.

He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the

people he served.

He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to

be the best he could be.

He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.

He was a cop, he was my Brother.

You guys are not looking at the article in a correct meaning. We all lnow their is a line drawn between the UPPER command and the troops. It is a fact and will always be with this bunch in the chrystal palace downtown to take care of themselves. The chief and lt colonel will see to this. To them their majors do no wrong (even when they do, look at the ones who HAD TO retire or end up on the front page of the CJ. or in court) This administration doesn't have a clue what goes on im the districts, when was the last time you saw White or Turner at a roll call. Their to busy trying to find the next restaurant for them and their cloneys to go to at the PD's expense. While their there they are trying to figure how to BURN the next officer in some crap charge for doing his job. This administration from the Mayor down doesn't give a DAMN about it's officers. You have become nothing more that a number and a expense. You may not like what I said but really thing about it before you condemn it.

Amen...there is a difference. And what these high ranking COs don't get...is that we know about their corruption and we will not follow them. ....no matter how many leadership quotes they spout or how many rah rah speeches.

I will follow the honest cops ..not the ones who have been corrupt and taken care of their whole career.

It's human nature to follow those who you admire. We are in dire need of someone to admire!

The next corrupt Major is going to retire before his investigation is complete. Isn't it amazing how this investigation will linger just past the Ryder cup (when he retires) but the officers who were investigated for the same thing only took about 4 weeks? Things that make you go HMMM?
