  • This lands on your desk and you do....what?

    I didn't want to put troll candy in the GLE but I saw this and I'm just baffled at the level of dumas. So I'm curious, what would you do with this....with the caveats that 1) he is an LEO who you are to handle and 2) he has a clean record to date? High five, reprimand, terminate, charge? Its your call, what say you?

    Officer needs retraining. Mr. Areola should get a years supply of Mentos Compliments of the city for his time and troubles.
    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

      I believe there will be a payout due Mr Areola also.

        Nothing. I refuse to watch social media videos.

          It's not a social media video, is a news video with security footage having audio if what happened. The officer needs retraining of some sort and a some days off. He walked in on a transaction not knowing all the circs.
          I'd rather be judged by 12 rather carried by 6.

            News video. That’s a non-suspect source...

              This is why I’m not a supervisor.

                It was a roll of candy. The off-duty member was not in uniform, nor aware of the entirety of what went down. Some serious discipline is required. The city is on the hook big-time. Dumb young patrolman move.

                    Officer needs to learn that off duty, you become an expert witness...

                      Even if he was on duty...pulling a gun on a non-violent shoplifter is not the wisest choice...doing so off duty is pure stupidity.
                      I'll chalk it up to him being young, stupid and eager.

                      I'm 50/50 on it. It was an honest mistake & I'm sure his intentions were good...but this type of mistake in this line of work has deadly consequences.
                      I am undecided, re-train or good bye.

                        Training only to teach him to not get involved off duty unless its a life or death situation. Its not worth sticking your neck out for some candy off duty. But no time on the beach needed.

                          Considering that M/M Areola don’t want the officer’s badge, I feel that some retraining for the officer and a small monetary settlement to the Areola family should be in order.

                          For a minute I thought the officer’s FTO was:

                            He pulled a gun over petty theft? Shoplifting?

                            Did he think this was a robbery?

                            Retraining. Maybe days off? It depends a lot on what his agency’s off duty policies are.
