What a sad day. I would think that other factors must have been going on in the Sgt.'s life to lead up to this. It sounds like the notice of Disciplinary Action was more then he could deal with on top of everything else at that moment in his life. What a waste and a very sad day for LE.

One cannot control many of the problems of life, but one's honor is always under one's control.
