Actually, it was a line I used on a drunk I arrested when he asked me for the fourth time why he was being arrested he didnt ask again. But its what came to mind as I read this article about a bother in blue who indulged a little too much and got bitten by the stupid bug. This is one of 3 or 4 situations, locally, Ive read about in the last month or so. I think we all totally understand the unique circumstances that may drive this behavior. Realizing, of course, that this may be an anomaly of the numbers but it does beg the question, How do you feel about a fellow officer being intoxicated in public and armed? Nothing to see here no problem keep moving. Not a problem if they dont do anything stupid. The situation should be handled jointly by IAD to determine any policy violations exist and Psychological Services to set up a treatment program. The situation should be handled by IAD as a personnel complaint of being intoxicated while on duty. The law should change to negate the carrying privilege for intoxicated persons. This would result in a weapons charge. Under Texas law, the presumption is that an officer is on duty 24x7 and thereby given the authority to carry. Its interesting to note that under LEOSA carry, the privilege is revoked if "under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating or hallucinatory drug or substance. How do you weigh-in?
