  • Buckeye officer fired

    i read the article in the azrepublic...anyone have any additional info. Cited for disorderly conduct for yelling at some kids who were with her own runaway child? I dont think i've ever cited anyone for disorderly conduct-distrubing the peace, let alone another officer. I hope theres more info then just this...Goodyear PD i'm looking at you....

      She's off-duty; kid runs away; she locates kid with kid's friends who get lippy with the parent; parent probably tells the friends to buzz off in a not-polite manner and get jammed up for it??

      Only going off the article, the punishment seems way too excessive. Way to go Goodyear. Christ, you can't even be a parent anymore.

          Not goodyear, but if I recall there is more to the story. Specifically some threats, 911 calls as well as being fueled by alcohol. I don't recall all the drama. I didn't think it would lead to a firing though.

            Even if there was threats of violence or police action and while intoxicated everyone makes mistakes. It wasnt like she was at a bar and doing these things. I can see if she has a history of this type of behavior but if not how about a suspension instead?

              I'd like to see the actual report from Goodyear. They filed a civil traffic violation too but there is no mention of what it was.

              I wonder if it was the LT's kid from previous marriage that she lost job over? At least I hope Buckeye or MCSO makes a project out of that kids "friends." I'd make it a point to increase presence at all their little hangouts. for some reason teenage girls don't like smoking in front of me. i seem to make those types uncomfortable. the officer probably knows all the places they hang and she only needs to drop off the list. if the step-daughter isn't going to drop the bad influences, maybe they can be convinced to drop her. jonesing is powerful influence. dealers don't like teenage girls that randomly show up with police escorts.

                Something else to consider is that the officer may not have been completely honest during the internal/admin investigation. I've seen a bunch of folks get caught up in some stuff that wasn't that bad (poor judgment, alcohol-involved incidents, DVs, etc), but stuff you would think wasn't career-ending, and they tell one little white lie, for whatever reason, and boom, they're done. As a LEO, you can do a lot of stupid stuff and keep your job, but dishonesty will get you the boot every time.

                I'm not saying that's what happened here, because I don't have any idea, but I have found that more often than not, when I hear of someone getting canned, and the punishment doesn't seem to jibe with the behavior, I'll learn later it was for dishonesty.

                      Thanks, it's one of my favorite books. Have you seen the film yet? I saw it a couple of weeks ago with my wife at the artsy-fartsy little theatre on Mill Ave in Tempe. I enjoyed it, but I was surprised the first part was only an hour and a half, and it seemed like they were trying to do quite a lot with with only a few hours of screen time (between the two parts). It stands to reason, because it's an enormous novel. They probably should have made it into a mini-series like they did with "The Stand."

                      My wife read The Fountainhead, but she's yet to read Atlas Shrugged. I had to explain quite a bit because there were some big chunks of information left out of the film. At any rate, I would highly recommend the film only after you've read the book. Take care!
