Really??? We know get fired for "bad Tactics" Chief? A pat down is a "bad tactic". If you want to start firing all cops who use bad tactics, then stand by…. you will need to hire many more cops since everyone in your department at one time or another uses "bad tactics". There is no such thing as training to correct these supposed "bad tactics"? I would say if the Chief fires officers like this, he is using "bad tactics" since anyone with any smarts will run away form that department or never apply in the first place. Chief you said the demonstrations and other outside influences were not on your mind when you fired this cop…… are a huge lier and a disgrace to your department and to our profession. I suppose you never used any "bad tactic" in your career? IF you ever were a reel cop and thats doubtful if you fire a cop like this. May explain why you did since you don't have a clue what real cop tactics are and are not. No corrective training? No lesser discipline? shame!
