    Read my post again Frank...I asked you if your department would allow you to sit and have drinks at a barwhile off duty but in uniform. Based upon what you say about your department's policy, this should be permissible, which again I find very difficult to believe.

    As my Chief would say (and a few of my old Sergeants in the Army), "We're here to preserve democracy not practice it."

    Seemed alot more believable when I was enlisted in Uncle Sam's Army. Not so much now in the years that I've been reclassified as a private citizen with actual civil rights

There is nothing in my Rules and Regs that say I have to change for work at the police station, or come right to work from home.

    Well then Frank your department is in the minority. I've never heard of a department that either doesn't have a specific policy regarding uniform wear, or at least won't address it under a generic "Conduct Unbecoming" policy.

    Let's take this further: What if you decided to go into a bar off-duty, but in uniform, and decided to have a drink.? No gun or any other offensive weapons on you, nor will you be operating a motor vehicle. No conduct that would be frowned upon if you were in civilian clothes. Are you telling me that under your department's Rules and Reg's that's perfectly acceptable behavior? I'd like to see that happen

    Actually, we all should presume the cops are innocent. Innocent until proven guility remember.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with officers coming to the courthouse in uniform to support one of their own who's being accused, or to be there for the trial of someone who hurt or killed one of their own. You often will see this at the sentencing of cop killers.

    Of course, this could cause problems if this was not a department-approved event. When you wear the uniform, you represent your department, so the department has the right to determine when and where you can wear it. Of course the department has no say so over what you do on your off-duty time, in your civilian clothes, as long as you don't violate any laws in the process.

    I do have a problem with the judge forcing the officers to sign in, if he didn't make the entire audience do so. Like Frank Booth said, unless he declared those proceedings closed to the public, those officers have every right to be in the audience as long as they don't disrupt the proceedings.

    If it turns out to be true that they had sex with her, not rape but sex, then they should be suspended.

    This is one huge reason not to have sex in a patrol car while on duty. Some badge bunny might want to get it on while you're on duty, something goes wrong and BAM its now rape and you're fawked.

    As for the uniform in the court issue, maybe its me, but a brother officer cant show support for another officer? I would have an issue with signing in, if it had never been done before.

    I will say that these two officers are a pair of D.A.'es.

    Thanks for the link.

    I havent judged anybody guilty or innocent of the rape. The one cop's lawyer said the sex was consentual... which is still wrong since it happened in the squad car, on duty, and he's a married guy... but not a crime.

    My problem with the whole thing was that courtroom $hit. i agree with Frank (i know...worlds are colliding [Wink] ) I think they should be allowed in the courtroom to show their support without getting crap about it.
